Why is my cat drinking too much water than usual. Help!

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

I have 2 year old cat. He is in and out of the house. Lately, my  cat is drinking almost 1.5 cups of water per day. The only reason I can think of is that it is cold outside and with the heat on, my apartment is very dry. Could be the lack of humidity the reason for his thirst? Or should I be more concerned that he has a health problem.  Please help!   – James


Should I adopt a pet, or let my other two cats have a baby?

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

My grandma wants a pet. Since she’s from another country and speaks very little English, she wouldn’t know how to adopt a pet on her own. Should I go to the pound to get her an adult cat of her own, or let my own two cats have a baby to give to her?  Time isn’t a problem, because she’s staying the whole summer.

Thanks you.


Cat health question, is this a problem?

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

My cat is eight years old, a little fat (or alot). But anyway she has a swelling on her chin about the size of a small pea. I don’t know what it is but I’m a little concerned because I have known the occasional dog to get cancer there. Is this normal or is it a problem.


Thank you,



My cat won’t stop throwing up

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

Please help. I have a 12 year old neutered male long haired cat.  Recently he has been throwing up after nearly every meal.  He seems fine otherwise.  Any idea what could be causing this???
