Our two cat brothers are 10 years old this year! They are as playful as ever, but I'm starting to wonder if we need to get them a shorter cat tree. [more inside]
Potentially buying a house where the owner would prefer that his indoor/outdoor cat (10 yo F) stay with the new owners. That's hypothetically fine with us, but how should we manage introductions to our two indoor-outdoor cats (M, 9 and 7) and the dog (M, 11) ? Or is this a terrible idea? [more inside]
All my new kitten (8 weeks old) does is sleep and bite me. It's bearable for now, but I do not want him to grow into a cat that bites me. Please hope. I saw this question and this question, but the kittens were older (7 months) than this guy. [more inside]

I have two healthy kittens - but one won't eat *anything* dry. Do you have suggestions for food & treats a cat with this quirk might like to snack on? [more inside]
Picking up this girl tomorrow and we having trouble coming up with a name that we all like. Wife doesn't like "human" names for cats. I don't like "food" names for cats. Doesn't have to have anything to do with her coloring, but bonus points if it does. Ideally the name would also have a cute nickname pairing. Thanks!
Area outside of a house. It's been peed on. Which then makes other dogs pee on it. Yellow rinse and repeat. So how do you break the cycle? Is there a scent there you can put to make them NOT want to use it? Or a scare crow for urination? Anything?
My cat started having dry, hard, pellet-y poops a little over a week ago. I've been trying various things including more/better water dishes, more brushing to ward off hairballs, and wet food with extra water. She is still pooping at least every other day and is still getting zoomies/jumping/eating/snuggling/etc. a normal amount. How do I know when it's time to see a vet? [more inside]
Poppa is almost 15. A while back he had what I thought was a scratch on his hind leg that kept getting irritated since he would jump from cabinets over the fridge to the countertops below. It wasn’t healing so I took him to the vet and an allergist. [more inside]
It's been suggested that I get a cat to help relieve stress. However, since I'll be going back to working in The Office soon, would it be fair for the cat to be left alone all day without any human companionship? (Other issues as well) [more inside]
We're going to the vet next week, but I am hoping that other mefites will have some experiences to share. [more inside]
My elderly dog has a tumour on the spleen. The vet found it during a checkup for some short but persistant nosebleeds. The vet recommended euthanasia but dog seems otherwise ok... how do you decide when it is time? [more inside]
Looking for hard data on the benefits of raw or homemade vs. kibble diets for my dog. [more inside]
I left the table for 5 minutes, and now the chicken bone is gone. It was an air fried chicken leg bone. He's a 2 year old corgi. I fed him a half hour before and a piece of bread after. Is there anything else I should do? I'm worried.
In a continuation of the urological saga of Frank the Adorable Wombat, I need advice on how to remove the smell of urine from paper. These papers have not been peed on, but were stored in a box that was and are now infused with the charming stench of ammonia. [more inside]
What should I use for treating my mostly indoor cats? [more inside]
A stray chicken has taken up residence in my yard. What can I do? [more inside]
Please tell me about cat window perches. Some attach with suction cups. What are the other methods? Do you need to open the window at all? Do you have a perch you like? [more inside]
Many people ask about kitty litter here, with specific needs. I have different specific needs. I want to know the overall best kitty litter solution for two beautifully house-trained, altered, 12-week old kittens. [more inside]
We moved into a dream house in a really cute neighborhood. Where there are a lot of fireworks in the summer. It's just kind of the culture here. Our cats are maybe getting used to it a little, but they're quite stressed out. Is there anything we can do to help them?
