    We found a stray cat stuck in our tree about 40 feet up, we had an arborist come get him down after 3 days of trying to coax him down. We've had him in our home for a week now and no one has claimed him or posted anything looking for him. I posted on various sites about him and no response. I took him to the vet and he isn't chipped. He isn't fixed or declawed either, we're becoming attached to this cat and he's so sweet with the 2 year old and our cats (2) and dog. How long do we have to wait for someone to claim him before we can keep him as our own?

  • Can I meet women by walking my cat on a leash in the park or will they find it creepy?

    All my friends with dogs take them out for walks and they get a lot of attention from women. I don't have a dog, but I have a cat. He's pretty good natured and can be walked on a leash. What do you think?

  • Cat problem?

    Best answer: Get a litter box, fill it with soft dirt from outside, and let him use that as a litter box. He is having accidents because he has nowhere to go. You may have a litter box he can use, but he doens't know that you are supposed to pee and poop there, because he does that in the dirt outside. So go outside,... show more

    I have a 15 year old cat and he's been on the downhill recentley. He's lost 2 pounds in the past two years and is constantly trying not to throw up.

He winces when he jumps, and no longer cleans himself, probably because it's painful for him to twist his body to do that. My last vet visit was a year ago and they did blood tests and didn't find any sickness there, but he might be sick now. I don't want him to suffer, so how will I know if it's a good time to get him euthanized?

  • Why do people still insist on buying or finding a cat by its breed?

    Best answer: It's because it makes them feel special saying they have a pure bred cat. It's all about flaunting and showing off. I'll take my shelter cats any day.

    Best answer: - Parents who give their kids an animal thinking they'll take care of it but don't so get rid of it.
    - Couples who get an animal together, break up, and neither want the animal.
    - People who get the wrong one they aren't prepared to deal with (example: Getting an energetic dog type while they're a couch potato, Getting a long haired cat type when you're not committed to brushing and combing regularly etc)
    - Get an animal on a whim but then dump it when the realization sets in that they require actual work.
    - People who dump them once they're not cute little puppies/kittens or when they get too old.
    - People who dump them when they've grown up looking like something they don't approve of.
    - People who dump them because the owners forgot you actually need to train your cats/dog's to hit be a nuisance.
    - People who domp them because they can't afford their care.
    - People who dump them because they decided they can't possibly deal with being a pet owner and a parent
    - People who dump them because they can't understand why their animal is destroying their home and belongings.
    - People who dump them because they couldn't be bothered trying to find rental properties that allow their pet.
    - Some are found as strays and have had owners who didn't chip their animal and didn't do enough shelter searching to locate them (or straight up didn't other looking in the first place or did a half arsed search)
    - Some are dumped because the original owner died or got sick and couldn't care for them.
    - Some end up there when their elderly owners are put into homes that don't allow pets
