    I rescued a kitten in the begining of October. I think he is about 12 weeks old now. When I got him he had medium length fur. Now the fur on his spine is REALLY long but everywhere else its short. Could his fur stay like this or will it even out?? Oh he was all black when I got him. Now his...
  2. Degu Discussion
    The new mum, Phoebe, who has just had four pups, is pulling fur from her paws. I'm worried that because the woman I got her from has now bred her (3 times in a year, that we know of) that she's become stressed. Of course I won't breed her at all, I never planned to, and learning that she's now...

Her ankle/foot is black instead of grayish/silver, and in some spots it's completely bare! does anyone know how this has happened?

  17. Rabbit Discussion
    Hello everybody, We have just noticed that our rabbit Mitsy has a small amount of fur that falls out with no effort (i.e when being petted). Upon closer inspection, this fallen fur appeared to have dandruff on it. We then parted his fur to find this: (sorry for grossness) This is going all...
  18. Cats
    I had a neighbor kid hanging around, and he was petting Parker, my cat. He had a drink in his hand and it spilled on the floor and partly on the cat, too. I wasn't that upset with him about it. He and I cleaned the mess. The cat seemed fine, but I noticed that he developed some mats. I cut...
