Chat Rooms

Can someone give me some advice? When I move out my cats (2 rescues) are going to stay with my mother, because I can't imagine a life without cats I was planning on adopting two new cats. I would like to have an intelligent, active cat who gets into trouble and makes life that little bit more interesting, but I also would like it to come to me for a cuddle. So I was thinking of a Tonkinese or an Ocicat, a friend told me that an Abyssinian or a Bengal would not be a good match for me because they won't cuddle with you. Can someone confirm this? And for my second cat I would like to have a rescue because I would feel guitly going to a breeder when there are shelters full of cats waiting to go to a warm home. I think the best way to make them get along is to ask the shelter for an active kitten around the same age as the kitten from the breeder. But I'm a little bit worried that they won't get along once they're older and one cat is much more active than the other one. Is it possible to see whether a kitten is going to be active or not when it grows up? And can someone give some advice on the breed I should pic? And if they get along really really well and I would try to add another cat to the group after a few years, would it be accepted?

i think my cat is a maine coon but cannot b sure anyone know for sure? x

so my little Cuddles is 17yrs and has the amazing ability to pee under the littler box without moving. she dose have chronic kidney problems (my poor fur baby) and she is on a spical diet for that, but my question is how the hell is she doing this and dose anyone else have this problem. The littler box is scooped clean and she still dose this, and its not the floor. Its not all the time maybe like once twice a mouth but the smell it potent. 

My beautiful cat has the habit of pulling her under fur out. I have noticed this at night when I am asleep or if I do not have time to giver attention right when she wants it. What can I do?

So, my husband and I got a new kitten about a month ago. He's around 3 months old and such a wonderful little guy, except on thing.... HE PEES IN OUR BED. He's done this almost every night since we got him. It's only at night though, and only in the bed. He is alone all day and never has any accidents. 


We took him to the vet when we first got him, and he got a clean bill of health, so I don't believe he's sick. He knows how to use the litterbox, and he can get on and off our bed easily. 


Locking him out of the room is not an option, as we have a small apartment, and I'd rather him pee on my sheets that I can wash than my new couch. 


We've tried sprays, taking away wet food at night, waking up to put him in the litterbox.. EVERYTHING. 


We thought it might be because he was so comfy in bed he didn't want to get up in the middle of the night to use the box, BUT last night he got up, jumped off the bed to eat/drink, climbed back on the bed AND PEED. 


I love my little kitten, but this is becoming very frustrating. We're also going away next week and I don't want him peeing at my mom's house... does anyone have any suggestions???

Harlem nearly died from a vets incompetance....please "skip a Starbucks and save a cat". He is only 4 years old and has excellent chance of longterm survival if he can get the continued treatment he needs.

My cat Tinkerbell was a stray that I adopted at about 8 weeks old. She is very sweet, affectionate & loving most of the time. She does have about an hour in the evening when she goes crazy & gets into everything though!

But the thing she does that makes me nuts is if I'm walking from room to room she will get in front of me & then lay on her back right in my path! Or if she's in the door way and I try to walk by her, she will flip over across the floor right where I'm walking.
I've heard that it is a great sign of respect if they show you their bellies but I'm afraid that I'm not going to see her one time & could really hurt her badly! 
I'm constantly tripping over her & if I can't figure out how to correct this behavior then I may have to give her away, for her safety & my own. I suffer from a clotting disorder like Haemophillia & if I fall, it could be very dangerous.
Please help me! Thanks, Charley

Last fall I had a a 5 year old male outdoor cat neutered. We had this cat from the time he was 6 weeks old.   About a month ago a large black male cat that has periodically appeared on our property came back.  In the past the male I had neutered would fiercely fight this other cat and drive him away.  This time, he just continued to get the crap beat out of him by the black cat.  My neutered cat disappeared about a week ago and we assume he is dead.  My husband blames me for this.  He says that if I had not neutered him he would have been able to fight back and that by neutering him he had no ability to fight back.  The same thing happened about 15 years ago.  We had an outdoor male.  I had him neutered and within a month he was gone and assumed dead.  The vets all say that neutering a male cat lengthens their life.  I am feeling really bad about this.  Is my husband right?

Can someone tell me what breed is this cat?

Sassy,my 15 year old indoor fur baby just jumped on back of chair to relax, within minutes her back end began to slide off ..no control, picked her up to comfort her, she got up and went under bed, next morn she seemed just fine that afternoon I noticed she wobbled when walking, would lose balance (stumble), vet gave her shot to help brain swelling, she seems fine, but stumbles. Blood flow in back leg very weak....We go back Friday ..what to expect?

I have a new kitten 9 months old, who chases her (to play) but she hisses, chases back and will attack her, but really never bites or hurts the kitten...I have kept them apart somewhat, is this bad for Sassy?
