theres a cat that lives outside that has all 4 legs but only walks on 3 of them. it keeps its front left paw curled up at all times
the neighbor said the cat was injured at a young age and after that never walked on that paw again. the injury was a year ago apparently
is it possible that kitty could be fixed if someone took it to a vet, or is it a lost cause

I think it really depends on how bad the injury is. If it's been a year since the injury and it's been avoiding using the paw then it's most likely something that the cat can't heal itself so a vet is obviously the only choice. But that doesn't mean it's a lost cause, it might be only a minor surgery that's needed.
Are thinking of taking the cat in to a vet yourself?

is this a /kot/ porno shoot?

>>4261881
i feel really bad for the kitty
but i dont want to abduct it because technically it belongs to the neighbor as a permanently outside cat
>>
>>4261906
Ah, from your wording I thought it was a stray neighbourhood cat, not someone's outdoor cat.
Maybe you could offer to take the cat to the vet? Although I doubt they'd agree to it, they'd probably take it as you saying they're bad owners.
Alternatively you can report the neglect to an organisation, I don't know who it would be for where you are. (Here in Australia it would be RSPCA)

I have very vivid and real memories of my cat that doesn’t make sense.

These memories are from my current house but my cat passed away before I moved here.

The first memory is how I would rest his head on my face while hugging him and later he would come rest his head on my face by himself.

The second one is he is on my bed and I give him a big hug.

At first these memories were burned on my mind and I was convinced that it actually happened. I remember exactly those moments when it happened. But when I think about it chronologically it doesn’t make any sense.

Am I going crazy? Is my old cat giving me visitations
>>
>>4261906
It doesn’t belong to them if it’s permanently outside on whatever property it chooses. Its a free cat. Enjoy.

Little Buryat brought down the curtains on top of me last night
She likes to climb

>>4261876
Almost definitely a fracture, and at this point it's never going to back to normal. A vet could still look at whether the injury is likely to worsen over time, and whether that can be prevented via surgery, but if it needs surgery it's not going to be cheap, and if it doesn't what's the point in going?

I'm stressed when my cats start meowing more than the usua because they're not chatty at all and I wonder what's wrong.

How do you deal with cat flatulence?
Little Buryat farts like crazy and it smells like shit.
Doesn't seem that there are any other symptoms like nausea

i'm getting my first kitten/cat soon. he's going to be 15 weeks old when i get him.
he's a siberian male, the only cat breed that i've never been allergic too.
the breeder recommends to feed him ad libitum with royal canin maine coon kitten dry food for a year.
i've read online that dry food is bad, that wet food is a lot better for hydration.
i was planning on buying a drinking fountain for him to drink more.

what should i feed him?
>>
>>4263128
What do you feed her, and how much food do you give her daily?
Also she looks a bit scrawny. Something seems off.
Is she done with deworming/vax etc.?

>>4263162
I give my cats dry and wet food (with crushed pills to help boost the immune system because they're old kots), and I've never had problems. What matters is the quality of food, a good brand makes the difference. However a cat that eats exclusively dry food needs to drink more, so a fountain can help. I collect the water from the shower and recycle it for toilet flushing, and when it is in the bucket sometimes my cats like to drink from there for a change.
>>
>>4263128
Natural weaning, better food, patience.
>>
>>4262258
They look related, are they siblings?
>>
Noone adopted my cat's siblings and now they're feral
At least someone is going to sterilise them, but i feel guilty for not taking them in myself(despite the fact that the cat i got desperately needed to be separated from his siblings)
How do i deal with this feeling?
>>
If there was a worst pets list, cats would be right up there with rabbits

She seems to be gaining weight, I feed her 80 grams of wet food in the morning and evening and is on dry food for midday, both are baby oriented
I'm not sure if she is completely free from worms, but 2 weeks ago she tested negative for parasites at the vet

Well it won't be long anyways.

Yeah those corneal ulcerations are a death sentence!
>>
>>4263162
You can let dry food soak up water for hydration. It's still has way more plant based ingredients than good canned food but the water intake issue is optional.

>>4263434
>She seems to be gaining weight
This is the most important thing with young cats. As long as she's eating a lot and playing some minor digestive issues are nothing to worry about.

My cat has been peeing in various spots in my house. I clean it with vinegar and enzyme spray thoroughly, have added lot's of scratching posts, pheromones, play with him daily, I have 3 litterboxes with and without lids, and fucking still he pees almost every day. I've been doing this for 2 months, no uti or other shit after visiting the vet. He's very anxious and the smallest things will make him piss everywhere. What do I even do at this point? I have never owned a cat that does this.

Don't worry, her URI has cleared up and she's a fucking mile a minute.
I think she's gonna be very floofy.

Is he intact??

Does he still have his testicles you nitwit
Intact male cats are notorious for just pissing everywhere

Here's one of my cats being cute.
>>
>>4263611
No he's neutered, he's only 3 and we do have another cat who is also neutered. We play with her and haven't noticed any aggression between them. As I was typing this I just watched him piss in the same spot I just fucking cleaned with enzyme.
>>
>>4263614
This sounds like a case for Jackson Galaxy
>>
>>4263676
I just had an idea, what if I had him stay at my moms until this next vet appointment comes up to get him on prozac. This way when he comes back, it'll be new to him? I don't know what to do.
>>
>>4263614
Put one of the litter boxes in that spot
>>
>>4263401
They're gonna be fine as sterilized feral cats, the sterilization will avoid a lot of troubles they would have gone through.
There are so many cats up for adoption every year in the summer season, not all of them end up adopted. It's not your fault.

If nothing else works... this might stress him even more though

thinking about getting a sphynx as a pet. only other pet i have is a corn snake. i live alone.

are they a pain in the ass to find/cost a ridiculous amount? not sure where i can find good local breeders
>>
>>4264085
Here's an idea, instead of getting some retarded exotic breed, get one of the many perfectly fine cats at your local shelter, maybe even for FREE.
>>
>>4264267
You are absolutely full of shit or retarded or both

My kitten has diarrhea (supposedly due to change in the cat food as the one he usually ate was delayed in shipment). Anything i should do for him to recover faster or will he be fine?
>>
My cat still won't give the rest of my family the time of day, but is absolutely obsessed with me. Is this normal for a cat that's just over a year old, and how can I get her to trust them more?
>>

It's ultimately on them to understand how to act around a cat.

>>4262238
Not according to the APA
>>
After two days of constant hissing whenever she crossed paths with the new kitten my older cat now just swats at him from time to time (with the occasional hiss when he surprises her). She hits hard but hasn't drawn blood so I'm positive there are no claws involved. Would you say this is an improvement and that she's only showing him who's the sheriff around these parts?

Anon, here's the plan
>>
>>4264309
Literally have second kitten from wild breed and you are full of shit simply because you can't raise it to a good cat. Of course cats are destructive and full of energy, they are fucking predators not rabbits, after they run out of energy they are pure angels

how do kittens play with each other without butchering themselves?
Isn't cat skin more delicate than human?

If the problem is just adjusting to the new food I guess he will recover fast by himself. You could try to help with a fiber supplement powder for pets like Fortiflora.

>>4264925
Yes, it's an improvement. She wants to assert dominance and establish a hierarchy.
If all goes well she will start ignoring the kitten and eventually accept him, maybe they'll never get along to the point of playing and grooming each other.

>>4265084
The fur softens the impact and protects them from serious damages, that's why they look like they're fighting even when they're playing like good friends.
>>
guys how old do u think this kot is? I want to say 6 weeks but not sure

forgot pic

Yes, 6 weeks is possible
They start changing the eye color when they are 2 months old
