Posted yesterday but got a better video today. Are they playing or fighting? Big cat is 1 little one is a 6 week old rescue.

She sounds like she’s really hurting him usually I split them up but needed to get the video so I could ask. I’m worried sick and can’t leave them alone together. Tried putting him in the bathroom with toys and doing Jackson galaxy’s base camp stuff but they both won’t stop meowing if I put one of them in one room on their own and sound really distressed. My big cat seems very angry a couple of times and hisses and arches her back up a few times too. Little cat just yelps a lot and sometimes hisses too. i really don’t know what to do

Post your cat with their best friend (that’s not their fur sibling 😳)

She loves her rat scratcher more than anyone, and doesn’t let others to scratch it. She even snuggles up with him in bed to sleep together, and they love watching birds every day (like on the picture above).

In fact, she loves him so much that she has become the same shape. 😮‍💨

My sweet girl got spayed today

Just wanted to share this cute photo of her. She hates the cone so the cat onesie is the one. The nurse who was with her in recovery said she's so calm and sweet and gave her a kiss before we came home. So proud of her (my Socks that is)

Surgery recovery advice? ~ Ginger has a unilateral chain mastectomy on the 30th. I'm nervous but trying to prepare to help her be as comfy as possible afterward. Any tips? So far I have this pen set up which will be her little recovery room

Feliway optimum?

So I'm having a debate regarding possibly getting another cat. I have two, and my orange tabby male has been neutered since a young age, but anytime I bring my older female cat back from the groomers or even just grooming her myself, (she gets a lion cut) he becomes quite relentless on going after her. Not in the sense of actually jumping her, more so following and hissing. Sometimes I've seen him hit her, but not anything serious. Either way, I've tried so many things to try and... just calm him down but the older they get, the longer those slightly hissy fits last. Before it used to be like... 3 days, last time it was almost 7. Given her age, almost 10, I felt awful because obviously she is just trying to remain calm.

Either way, I did get the feliway optimum, but by the time I got it, I think it was at the point where he didn't care nearly as much?

Does anyone have personal, positive experiences with it?

Is there anything else to give the grumpy cat temporarily? I just don't want/need him actually getting physical, especially the older she is getting. Given her breed (balinese), I fear she is/will be prone to more physical problems the older she gets. I'm certain she has asthma, but haven't been able to diagnose her because the vets don't seem to think it's that, and she lost a few teeth already.

Why is my cat itching so much that he cuts himself?

I am currently fostering a cat from my local shelter and considering adopting him. When I got him, I was told he was recovering from Mange' s, has FIV, and may have dermatitis. He has been back to the shelter Vet 2 times since I got him due to various issues like his itchiness, labored breathing, watery eye, and a broken tooth. So far, he has been prescribed an antibiotic (doxycycline) for the wheezing and some Gabapentin (pain med for any discomfort) to help with the licking. He finished the recommended dosages last week, but I it was hard to tell if there was improvement in either area. From his recent visit he received azithromycin to help with his breathing. Also, as for the tooth - the vet told me he is suffering from a decaying tooth and this will need to be removed in the coming weeks.

He is drinking water, eating normally, and generally a very friendly guy. I understand this could be a variety of things, but I am just looking for some thoughts or similar experiences from the community here. Thanks!
