How can I get my cat to stop licking itself too much?

We have an otherwise healthy kitty (about 3 years old) except for this issue with the fur on her back. She's basically licking herself to the point of creating sores on her back. How do we fix this? [more inside]

Cat(s) behavior issues...what to do?

Sister cats, adopted from the shelter very young (~couple months)...are now around 3 years and thriving. Problem is they will randomly get very...agitated? Upset? Freaked out may be the best way to describe this. Not sure what to do or how to go about explaining it to vet without having to force pills down their little throats (this causes more trauma and anxiety!) Tedious details inside. [more inside]

Because shmoopybooplesnoogywiggums is too long

I have finally managed to talk my husband into getting a cat and here she is! She's about 1.5 years old, really affectionate, but not really the frisky type. She came with the name Skye but that's a bit too "stripper" for our tastes. She's been with us for a week and seems to be settling in ok and now that I've taken her to the vet's to be spayed, it's time we made her a permanent member of the family with a proper name. Previous AskMes show that you guys are really good at this and husband and I are terrible, so please hope us!

Why did our cat become an asshole?

So we have two cats, an older tortie (12) and a middle-age tuxedo (9). The younger one has always been a complete sweetie, who only play gnawed with his teeth and never used his claws. So he got out, and got lost. He was gone for 7 days and we found him at the local humane society. Ever since he's come back he's been 1) aggressively affectionate with us and 2) a complete asshole to the other cat. He also now makes use of his claws. The other kitty has now confined herself to about 2 hiding places in the house, where she also uses the bathroom. Our house doesn't allow us to put them in separated areas of the house. What the heck is going on and how do we fix it?

Name my kitty! Kitler edition.

I am breaking my lurker status by asking a "name my kitty" question. Will you please help me name my new adopted shelter kitty? She's about 2 years old, and very sweet and playful. I would like a girl name. I know all about the "cats that look like Hitler" sites, but I'm not into exploiting that cute little mark on her nose (even though I was considering naming her "Eva" for a while). I'm open to just about anything. And kitty thanks you in advance, she will enjoy no longer being called "New Kitty." Oh yeah... here's the photo!

Surprise! You have kitties!

Apparently, a stray cat had a litter of kittens under our deck about a month ago. We discovered it this morning when our deck was all of a sudden full of roly-poly little kitties. They're so cute that the declaration that we were going to remain a 2 cat household was defeated within about 10 minutes. Now we're seeking advice on how to integrate a little kitten with our existing 1.5 year old cats. [more inside]
