I read about this new tick, the East Asian tick, which has been found in New Jersey and Long Island and is thought to be heading north. I already have a lot of other stuff to worry about with my dog, Zack – fleas, rabies, dog flu. You name it. I worry about it. Should I be worried about this new tick, too?
You don’t need to get your vision checked; you’re not seeing double! These sweet sisters, Daisy and Lucy, are looking for a new home. They have grown up together, are very well bonded and hope to be re-homed together.
Last week you answered a question about a 16-year-old cat with behavior changes. You talked about the possibility that it might be something called FCD, feline cognitive disorder, (although it sounded to me like she was just getting old and senile). Whatever. My question is, does something similar happen to dogs?
Finnick is almost 5 months old and strikingly handsome with beautiful orange stripes with white toes and under-belly. He’s a polydactyl cat, meaning he has extra toes. So his feet are big, which is very cute. He gets along well with cats of all ages, but in his heart of hearts he really is a people cat.
My cat, Betsy, has been my best friend for sixteen years now and she has been a great companion through many adventures. But when I took her on a road trip earlier this summer in our RV she spent the whole trip yowling in her carrier. She has never done that before. I ended up coming home early because she was so upset. Even now she does not seem to be the same happy cat as before the trip.
We would like to formally introduce to you a gentle, shy creature… This is Holly. She already has on her best tuxedo suit and is ready to dance the night away. She can be shy at first (she doesn’t want to be prom queen). But certainly loves attention and would want to be petted all day long.
James Hook is a handsome kitten pirate ready for adventure! He may be shy at first, but is a world renowned snuggler once he gets to know you. He has a purr as loud as a ticking clock inside of a crocodile’s belly.
Captain Hook loves to explore and is always on the search for his kind of buried treasure – a forever home.
Last week, we responded to a question about a cat that may have been suffering from a condition known as “chronic idiopathic/post-viral rhinitis.” We focused on the need for a veterinary examination and what to do to manage the condition once it is diagnosed. But what about preventing it from happening in the first place?
Primrose is a sweet, playful young kitten, the last of our District 12 tributes still waiting for a forever home. She is a snuggly typical kitten, and as you can see, a very good napper. When she wakes up, she’s adventurous and absolutely loves to play – especially with catnip toys and balls with bells or something similar in them.
My cat, Sneezy, got that name because he sneezes and coughs and his nose runs almost all the time. He doesn’t really seem sick otherwise. He eats fine and plays and seems happy. But should I be worried?
