My now deceased kitten of around two months would have a very severe reaction to my boyfriend whenever he was round. The kitten would bleed from his nose and eyes, become very clumsy, timid and aggressive and at times we thought perhaps clinically insane. On one occasion, he climbed up our wallpaper to get onto the fridge (He had never done this before) and either jumped or fell off of it. He didn't seem any worse than he had prior to the fall however he kept on trying to climb up to the fridge. He was very week and tired, he wouldn't eat or drink on his own and as mentioned earlier, he was bleeding quite considerably. He bled from his nose a lot, a little from his eyes and possibly from his mouth although it could have come from his nose. We had to wipe him of blood every ten minuets because his face would be covered. My boyfriend didn't return for a week or so and in that time the kitten recovered, and was healthy and strong again, but it happened again when he returned. This was happening on weekends otherwise we would have taken him to a vet, but as it was my mother was away on both occasions and we couldn't find any veterinary practises open even if she had been here. My boyfriend left again and the kitten recovered, and then on the third visit the kitten reacted the same way, only this time he died. It was only after the third visit I realised it /must/ have had something to do with my boyfriend. If I had known beforehand I would not have allowed him round. 
     What was it that made the kitten bleed whenever my boyfriend was round? As a side note, he definitely did not harm the kitten in any way, he was always very gentle and calm with him. He owned a dog - could the kitten have had an allergy to it? I am desperate for an answer - as is my boyfriend. I haven't been able to find answers anywhere else and the question has been haunting me since the day Littlefoot died. 

I am a proud owner of 5 pitbulls ! Trouble(dad) Mimi(mom) frankie(son) Emma(daughter) and Julez(daughter) , My babies seem to get along most of the time but every now and then they will fight , and its a bit scarey i am able to break them up and everything seems to be fine but this past week while i was trying to break up the two baby girls one of them bit me i know it was not intentional and i did not have to go to the hospital. It just seems to happen for no reason either because on is getting more attention them the other or because one wants to go out before the other. I know they are a pack and from what i understand they have a pecking order but i could still use some help will this get worse as they get older ? please help!!

I have an eleven year old Rhodesian Ridgeback. He has kidney failure, a large (possibly cancerous) outer abdominal tumor, and ulcerations in his intestines. My husband is giving him an herbal concoction daily that is supposed to help his kidneys mixed in with baking soda, which is supposed to help his ulcer. He has BARELY eaten for the last week. He has lost almost 20 pounds and is lethargic. Although he loves to go on walks and go to the park, he doesn't have a fraction of the energy that he used to have. My husband is very upset and is trying everything to help our dog. He doesn't want to put him down, but his quality of life is dwindling. What should we do? Help!

Getting your dog fit through regular fitness regime is the one thing that should be looked after to. Share your views on that.

Background info:
Living in the house - Indoor and outdoor spay and neutered cats with a neutered dog.
Mother healthy, no problems birthing and attentive. 4 week old kittens are active with no signs of illness still nourished solely by mothers milk.
Last night - 10pm "Gorgo" one of the kittens was going to sleep and started meowing. Not seeming to need anything and just having been fed by mama we all went to bed. 4 am I awoke hearing a kitten's loud cry. It was so loud I thought it had made it all the way to my room. I found her lying on her blanket, and it seemed like she was crying out in her sleep. "nightmare?" After going back to bed, the sound of her cry rang in my head (it was not a normal meow) and I got back up to double check her. She was gasping for air and died in my hands in minutes.

My first thoughts: Dog had been put out for the night.Our neutered male cat had caused her injury. But after close examination I saw no signs of puncture wounds or wet fur.
Second thoughts: Mama kitty has been fierce about any cats coming down the hall let alone in the same room and she was not alert when I went into the room. Perhaps their was something causing colic or an obstruction in the bowels?
This is a mystery and was hoping we could all narrow it down a bit. My 9 yr old daughter wants to be a vet and is needing answers.

My question is - What are the likely causes of death?

I have a cat that is about a year old and got very sick all of a sudden vomiting, stopped eating after $1000.00 at the vet they couldn't find anything wrong with him.  Advised me to put him down I couldn't do it so I brought him home.  After 2mths he is still eating but broke out from something constantly itchs and has huge sores.  Our vet doesn't want to give steroid shot because of history but we gave tried antibiotic steroid spray and anthesiame.  Today when we came home its like he is losing his mind and is jumping and meowing like he's never done.  Is it possible for a cat to go mad?

My chihuahua puppy, male, aged 3-4 months old named Raffy LOVES mango.

I give him small amounts and he just wants more, I want whats best for my dog, so I don't want to be feeding him things he shouldn't eat? He has no effect with little amounts.
- Thanks SO much, paws up!

Meggs, our two year old indoor ginger cat died a week ago and we have no idea why. He was my best friend and I am so sad as is my wife. We buried him in the front yard and bought a rose bush with two flowers on it, one for each year of his life. He will be remembered with fond memories and I am so sad that he was taken too soon.

I have two cats, brother & sister orange tabbies, about two years old that I adopted as kittens.  They are very good cats – affectionate, happy and friendly to other humans.

Enter Max, the black cat:  After three years separated, my wife moved back in last year along with Max. We raised Max from a kitten over eight years ago. He’s extremely affectionate with us, but skittish around other humans.

Max is like a Disney story. A few years ago he got lost in northern California. While lost he crossed two interstates and survived eight months in a state park until the park ranger finally earned his trust, found his chip and got us reunited. He’s obviously a tough little guy.

The problem: My cats (Dexter & Stella) are terrified of Max. At first, last year, Max was aggressive with them, but now it appears he just wants to buddy up so we can all sleep in the same bed together. Max chases them sometimes, but I haven’t seen him attack. If cornered, Dex & Stel hiss and growl, and sometimes reflexively poop. When Max is upstairs my cats run to the top of the refrigerator. But, when Max is downstairs, or appears to be gone, Dex & Stel are back to normal as if nothing ever changed.

Does anyone have a suggestion how to get cat harmony here? We thought about locking all of them together in a room for a while, forcing Dex & Stel to accept Max. But I’m not sure that’s a good idea.  Please help!

Signed,

-Cat Baffled
