How do I help my older kitty accept our new kitties playful behaivor?
I have a kitty named Suzy who is 13 years old and has lived with other cats her whole life. For the past few years it has just been her and Mowgli a 14 yr old male. They were very bonded and unfortunatley he lost his long battle with a very aggressive mouth cancer in July. Suzy has been very lonely as she is not so much a people snuggler, that's what Mowg was for. I wrestled with the decision and finally decided to adopt an adult cat from a shelter and introduce them slowly. The new kitty, Rory, was given his own room, litterbox, food and bedding for over a week. They had supervised visits and everything went fine. I slowly introduced Rory to the rest of the house and still all was fine. Suzy wasn't real lovey, but as long as they didn't touch it was all good. It's been a month now and Rory is comfortable, unfortunately this means he wants to play with Suzy. Rory is only 1.5 yrs and I just didn't realize how much of a kitten he still is. Suzy interprets his playfullness as agression and responds defensivly. I have tried distracting Rory when he is playful and positive associations with one another. Nothing seems to be getting better. I don't know how to help these guys get along. They are both sweet loving kitties and I just want them to both feel happy and safe in their own home.

I have a wonderful new 3 month old pit bull puppy. She is a beautiful and I've only had her a week and I'm already very attached to her...however, she is deaf and training her has become stressful that her behavior is bringing me to a decision to have to take her to the animal shelter. She has such a bad habit of biting hands and feet....does ANYONE have ANY tips for training deaf pit bulls??? ANYTHING would help me...
Worried about my lil' shih tzu
My Shih tzu, Willy, just turned 13 and I am worried about his health. His hearing is deteriorating, which finally gives him a valid excuse for what was previously "selective hearing" upon those occasions when he just didn't want to listen! That alone didn't worry me much; however, he had pancreatitis this summer, which is better now. He is a little beefy at 17 pounds. When he gets up in the morning, or up from his NUMEROUS naps, he frequently seems to have pain in getting up and around. He will limp quite a bit. Frequently I will have to pick him up to bring him back inside because he can't seem to get up the two steps back into the house. He kind of stumbles. He has had a few lumps on his shoulders and neck, which seem to be muscle cramps and inflamation. He is thirsty all the time...He insists on sleeping in my bed and I have to get up 3-4 times a night to take him to the kitchen for a drink. He drinks like he just can't get enough! Then he "hyperventilates" because he can't catch his breath. I know, his short snout makes him hyperventilate but this excessive thirst? Water is available to him all day long and he is a frequent drinker through out the day too. I have noticed a few times lately that his breathing is funny, like he can't seem to catch his breath. Is this just "old age?" I don't want him to be in constant pain or suffering. I can't afford excessive medications and treatments, and am not convinced those would be best for him anyway. Any suggestions? Any advice? Do I need to consider putting him down? I know there are a lot of issues in this "little discussion" but I could really use some direction.

how old can a stud dog be?
MY female poodle and my 14 year old poodle were caught in the act. I did not think a dog that old can breed. The vet says she is expecting. Both are AKC. Will I have any problems registering the litter.
