Behavior & Training > Peeing in inappropriate places

Once you have ruled out a physical problem, there are a lot of things you could look at to determine the possible root of the problem. Do you sometimes pee in the litter box, or do you *only* pee where your Mom doesn't want you to? Some cats don't like to pee and poop in the same litter box, so if you have only one litter box and you always poop there, maybe adding a second litter box would help you. Did you maybe get startled when peeing in the litter box at some point? If so, you might just view the litter box as a scary place to pee and need a little help sorting that out.

If the vet rules out a physical problem, it is possible he is stressed--could you try a calming collar on him? As a last resort, do you think he would wear a diaper? I have used kitty diapers on a couple of my cats and it has solved the problem.

Cat Health > Horner's Syndrome

Mika's surgery did fix his Horner's Syndrome, but the growth they removed from his ear turned out to be a ceruminous gland tumor (also known as an ear wax tumor). Earlier this year the tumor came back, but Mika's kidneys weren't working well enough to have surgery again. He went to the bridge in June. Please do whatever you can to stop the inflammation in your kitty's ears because chronic inflammation can lead to cancer.

Behavior & Training > Innapropriate chewing? (on plastic, netting/tulle, ribbons, etc...)

I like to chew ribbon and plastic and my Mom sprays those things with Grannick's Bitter Apple spray. It tastes just awful and I won't chew anything that is sprayed with it.

Behavior & Training > Cats Urinating in the House *Last Options*

Would you consider trying a kitty diaper? My Mom has used these for three kitties now and they have worked well for her. The diapers she uses are machine washable and she puts half of a human incontinence pad in them and that catches all the pee. The diapers have a tail hole so the kitty can poop normally in the litter box--it just catches the pee.

Cat Health > I have ringworm....

Your Mom might want to get some latex or non-latex disposable gloves for people to wear whenever they touch you until your ringworm is cleared up. I had ringworm a few years ago and it was super hard for me to get rid of. I had to have baths and everything. Eventually, Mom had to get a special pill for me to take for 30 days and that cleared it up completely but it was a really expensive medicine.

Food & Nutrition > Need some advice

Whatever food you feed, please make sure it does not contain spinach. Spinach contributes to the formation of oxalate crystals, and you have already seen where crystals can lead.

Cat Health > Is This True?

In many areas in the U.S. cat and dog owners are legally required to have their pets vaccinated against rabies. My vet always does this for my cats, but the other vaccines she bases on the overall health of the cat in question. Mika, for example, did not get his combo vaccine once his kidney disease had progressed to a certain point because our vet felt the additional risks to his health would outweigh any benefit he might get from the vaccine. He went to the bridge a few months ago, so vaccination isn't an issue for him anymore.

All us kitties came to live with our current Mom and Dad when we were already adults and the vet has kept us as current with vaccines as our general health permits.

Behavior & Training > My new cat is terrified and agressive...

You might want to try a Feliway or ComfortZone diffuser. You plug it into the wall and it emits pheromones that help calm kitties. You might also want to just let your kitty hide for a while until he becomes comfortable enough to come out on his own. We live with a couple of cats who hid most of the time when they first came here, but now they only hide if they think they might be going to the vet. Be prepared though--it might take a few months for a kitty to become totally comfortable with a new home.

Cats and a Clean Home > At wits end over cat pee

Would you consider trying her in a diaper? My Mom has had two different cats that wore diapers because of peeing issues and that worked well for them. The diaper has a tail hole that allows the kitty to poop in the litter box normally, but it will catch any pee they decide to share. Just put a half of an incontinence pad inside the diaper and it will catch all the pee. The diapers my Mom uses are cloth and machine washable.
