Behavior & Training > New Puppy = Very Angry Cats
Rory

Purred: Sun Feb 14, '16 9:38am PST 
My family and I got a new puppy ( a shih tau) in November. Since Ollie's (our puppy) arrival we have been dealing with two very angry cats.

Charlie, his ears go right back as soon as Ollie is near, he hisses and swats at the puppy. More often then not he will hide once he see's the puppy coming.

Rory growls,hisses, swats, chases the puppy and generally sounds really really angry any time the puppy is anywhere near her. She often will go after the puppy if he is anywhere near her. The puppy can just walk by and she starts this awful growl.

We've had the puppy since November and neither cat is any closer to accepting him. We have had a dog before, and both cats were perfectly fine with her. But she was an older dog and was here before either cat. Before she passed, Rory and Chloe (our dog that has since passed) used to play together and clean one another.

Does anyone have any solutions or ideas on how we can get the cats and dog to live in the same house peacefully?

Cat Health > A lump?

The weird thing is I haven't felt it since, but I made a vet appointment anyway, just to be on the safe side.

Cat Health > A lump?

Hi there, I was rubbing Charlie's belly today and I noticed a lump, off to one side but in the belly area. The lump feels a bit solid, but has a slight squishiness to it, its a bit bigger round than a toonie. Any ideas what it could be? I rub his belly all the time, and have never felt anything like that before.

He is very loving to us, but very timid of others. Taking him to the vet completely stresses him out, I don't want to take him unless it is absolutely necessary.

Cats & Travel > How to make moving less stressful?

Hi there! I'm planning on moving in the next few weeks, with my two cats. Both cats have been raised in the house we are currently in, and when we move it will be a few hours away and into most likely an apartment. Does anyone have any advice on making moving as less stressful as possible? I know the move is going to be stressful, but anything I could do to decrease it would help!

Cat Health > Not Eating...

Charlie was taken to the vet and had his urine tested. The doctor didn't say that much was wrong with him, but game him a shot for pain and gives me meds to give him every 24 hours for three days. So the next day my mom is laying in bed and he pee's all over her bed. And was acting funny, he wouldn't go near anyone and was acting sick. I was at work so my mom called the vet, and she told my mom that Charlie had lots of blood in his urine, and that the shot they gave him for the pain made him high as a kite. They never freaking told me that when I was IN the office. They just said that he had some pain. So then after all this I decided to look up the medication they put him on, and it was metacam. After doing some research, to my utter horror that medication is bad for cats. I refused to give him his last dose of it.

Since the vet visit I've been giving Charlie primarily soft food and he seems to be doing better.

The past few days I've noticed Charlie and Rory both haven't been eating very much. Rory has been eating more than Charlie, and Charlie has been eating very, very little. I've tried giving him his favourites (soft food and treats) but he won't eat that either.

I got him to eat a little bit of soft food last night, and today a few treats but thats it. He just turns up his nose to anything I offer him. Rory isn't eating much either. Usually she comes running when she hears her food, but she hasn't been. I don't know whats going on with them, but I'm incredibly worried.

Some more info; One of them threw up whatever they ate last night. I think it was Rory, but it was at 3am so its hard to be sure. One of them has been peeing in the bathtub and a few other places lately, I think its Charlie. That was the original reason for his soon to be vet appointment. We had family visit last weekend, and they brought their grandkids and dog. But both cats are used to kids and the dog has been here many times before, plus the dog was outside 95% of the time.

Has anyone gone through this with their cat before? Obviously I'm going to take them to the vet but can't get in for a few more days. Just incredibly worried....

Cat Health > Revolution?

Revolution works great, and its super easy to use. I've used Revolution on both of my cats and it works great. Just make sure when you apply it you put it in a place where your cat cannot lick it, my vet recommended placing it in between my cats shoulder blades.

Food & Nutrition > Best Diet Food

I took Rory to the vet today and my vet is putting her on a special hard food that I will probably spend an arm and leg on and have to get from the vets office. I mentioned Stella's but my vet told me to try the one she knows works first. She had never heard of Stella's. If the one from the vet doesn't work I'm going to try Stella's. She also recommended that I get her one of those Slim Cat feeding balls so she will have no choice but to move to get her food. Fingers crossed!

Since Rory is going on special food, I think I'm going to take the dive and switch Charlie to a soft food diet. Fingers crossed again!

I always heard that soft food will rot your cats teeth, how true is that?

Saying Goodbye: Memorials & Support > Ghost of your Kitty?

I recently had a visit from one of my boys. My cat Jack passed Jan 2, 2009 at age 10 and my cat Nikki passed the summer of 2007. The loss of Nikki and Jack was quit bad for me, after Nikki and Jack both passed I got a few visits from them. I think they knew that I really needed a visit. Once I got my two kitties I have now the visits became less frequent. But last week I was almost asleep and I felt a cat jump up on my bed and walk across the bed towards me. I rolled over to pet whichever cat it was but there was nothing there. It was one of my boys visiting me.
