Just want to share my web page with you all, trying to get the word out about the Giant Decker Rat Terriers.

Hi - I'm new and hoping someone can help me with this problem.  I have three cats - 2 are siblings, a male and a female, about 5 yrs. old, the other is a Siamese, about 12.  All three are active and in good health.  One of them, probably one of the younger cats, has been defecating and urinating just outside the litter boxes for about a month, usually in the same spot.  We have three litter boxes in the basement and they are easily reached.  I eliminated the Siamese being the culprit by isolating him for a couple of days.  This behavior has never happened before, and, as far as I know, nothing has changed in our environment or situation.

Why is it after I give my dog a bath, he always runs outside and rolls in the grass and dirt. Its like he doesnt like the smell, or is itchy.  Has anyone found a product that might help prevent this behavior?

My dog is a 1 year old part pit and she eats pecans still in the shell from a tree we have in our yard. She has also started to eat on sticks. Does she need something I'm not giving her. Will these items hurt her?

Thanks for any info you can give.

My cat (20 years old) has been having problems with her right hind leg for a while (arthritis).  Suddenly, a couple of days ago, she couldn't stand up or walk.  Both of her hind legs were too weak to support her.  My usual vet says arthitis has encased her spinal cord.  I want to try acupuncture before I even consider the FINAL SOLUTION.  I cry when she tries to tell me what she wants.  I always carry her to the litter box first, then try to give her water, then try food.  Her appetite is good - she is very alert- but I don't know how long we can go on with a 24/7 watch on her.

I guess, I don't know what I am asking except for others who have gone thru this.  I cannot bring myself to to make that final decision.

I have a cat thats 18 years old. She has hypothyroidism and is on medication for that. I have begun to wonder if she is becoming senile. She always used her litter box and has always been a good cat. In about the past year she has begun to mainly sleep. When she has the urge to go to the bathroom..she will 'go' wherever she happens to be. She has literally stood up from the spot where she was sleeping.near her food dish,squatted and urinated and/or pooped. Not only that..she has been known to do this in other strange places. She has gotten on the dinner table and urinated. She has came running into my room and jumped staright up onto my bed and squatted and urinated. She has urinated in the dogs food dish. pooped in the bathtub, just anytime the urge hits her..she goes.. any place,anytime,anywhere. This is not the beloved cat we once knew. We are at our wits end on what to do. We don't have the money for alot of tests. When we took her to the vet he said to be 18 years old she looked very healthy, though she only weighs about 5 pounds..she used to be very fat. We have tried taking her to her box in the bathroom after meals and in between. She will use the box....so she knows what its for and where its at. She occassionally goes to her box on her own. is there anyone out there dealing with a situation like this? All answers appreciated.

I have a six month old puppy from my local county animal shelter, although the picture was taken at around three months. I am quite curious to know which breeds are in her, because it is very unclear to me. She was certainly the runt of her litter, she is currently about twenty pounds, about fourteen inches tall, has pointy ears, a fawn/ malinois coat, non-shedding short hair, a long wiry tail, small white paws, dark brown mussel, thin frame, and a kind, gentle, loyal, slightly protective, obedient, and friendly personality. I see many possibilities of breeds in her, but want to know what you think. She obviously has shepherd in her, but which kind, and what would she be mixed with to be so small? How big do you think she'll get?

My friend told me about her cat suddenly attacking people and I was wondering if that happened to anyone else.  She said she would just be petting her cat, the cat would all sweet like she liked being pet, but then out of no where she would just turn and attack her.  I have never heard of this happening before, has anyone else?

Hello,
My wife and I just brought home a new kitten yesterday and our established cat (Shadow) immediately became very aggressive towards the two of us.  Shadow is a Maine Coon and weighs about fifteen pounds, so she's a pretty large cat.  We live in a nice big clean home, so there's much room for everyone and the little kitten even has her own room.  The only contact they've had is when we had Shadow check out the kitten, while the kitten was inside of a carrier.  We've given Shadow her space, but she's literally lunged on numerous occasions at both me and my wife, trying to attack us.  We live in Portland, Oregon and a couple of years ago we went through a big snow storm for about a week and this is when Shadow (about five to six months old at the time) came to our door and we believed she was a feral cat and the Multnomah County Animal Shelter also thought there was a good chance?  We had taken her to the shelter after she had road out the storm in our bathroom for a few days, hoping her family would come looking, but no one ever did and we had told the shelter not to put her down, we would take her if it ever came to that.  Shadow has always been an aggressive cat and she'll occasionally show her dominance towards my wife, but she's never tried to actually harm us like what we've seen over the last twenty-four hours.  I'm 6'3 and 245 lbs. and I'm even scared of her now, she just tried to attack my wife and then she turned and ran at me (while hissing and growling), but luckily she proceeded to slip on the hard wood floors and passed me without incident.  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, we truly feel like prisoners in our own home and this just isn't fair to anyone involved, Thank You!  Scott & Alice.
