Why Doctors Donít Take Sick Days by Nikhil Jain
THE bottle of Maalox sat perched on the triage desk in the emergency room. It was mint flavor, or maybe lemon ó I donít recall exactly ó but it shimmered temptingly. I had just finished with a new admission, and my stomach had been groaning ominously for hours. It was after midnight, the whole...

Calico female stands on hind legs like a bear by John Doe
My calico female cat likes to stand like a bear on her hind legs. She does that when my hand is above her head, in order to but my hand with her head. Her white female kitten (not the same distinct calico markings, it's dad was a black cat) exhibited the same behavior, getting up on its hind legs...

Seven week old kitten's using 100+ quart Sterilite box for litter box by John Doe
The sides are pretty tall, but they can jump. Seems they already prefer the huge 100+ quart Sterilite box for a litter box. I was using one of those grocery store style maroon litter boxes (Hartz I guess). Had to clean the sides every few days. I guess that proves it stays clean not because of...

Too many stray animals by John Doe
What does your city do about stray animals? I was just told by our "dog pound" that they are short on space. My guess is that they never have enough space. Can the city put a tax on businesses/individuals that sell animals? Maybe they could dedicate that tax revenue to a catch-neuter-release...

Cats love their Skyway by John Doe
http://www.flickr.com/photos/27532210@N04/ The kittens drew their mother up onto the Skyway (the kittens love it). Before, she did not go up there. I didn't encourage it, because the feral has been totally cramped (she's really weird/paranoid) by our newcomers and needs space. The male kitten...

Question about skin cancer in white cats by [email protected]
My white cat has developed a darkening of her nose (see other post). I'm told white cats are prone to skin cancer. I never let her outside but she does lay in a sunny window in the morning for hours. The window is a double, with a storm window on the outside. Doesn't that block the dangerous...

compressed/canned air by John Doe
Another very strong deterrent, used responsibly of course. Not suggesting there are many (if any) good uses, just that it makes a serious impression.

Dark, crusty area on nose by [email protected]
My white cat's nose had a small dark spot on it for a couple of months. I couldn't feel anything and didn't worry about it. Recently it got larger and now she has several black spots on top of nose. When I feel them they feel crusty. The side of her nose also is darker. She had acne on her...

Wellness not as good as it used to be? by [email protected]
My local pet store owner told me that Wellness is no longer the high quality food that it used to be. He said the company was sold a few years ago. Apparently they began selling Wellness in the large chains after the sale (PetCo, PetSmart, etc.) and the quality went down. He recommended a brand...
