  • Sound notifications for new e-mails have stopped?

    I have Yahoo Messenger 11.5. Several months ago, the sound notifications for new e-mail messages disappeared. Now I never get a sound notification when a new e-mail message comes in.

    Yahoo Help keep saying that they're working on fixing the problem, but it doesn't seem fixed.

    Does anyone have a solution?

  • How can I send an email to Customer Se5rvice?

    My Yahoo Mail account was one of those that suffered from the Yahoo server/hardware outage a couple of days ago. All my folders disappeared along with all of their contents.

    I want to write to Customer Service and ask them to restore the folders and their contents, but there is no way to send an email to them.

    Does anyone know a way to send such an email?

    Thanks!

  • My cat suddenly dislikes having her temperature taken anally -- what could be the reason?

    Every time we go to the vet, they take my cat's temperature anally, and she's never resisted it. Last week she acted very unhappy about it and resisted it. Today, even bigger resistance, so the vet tech had to try twice.

    Any ideas what the reason could be? Serious responses only, please. Thanks.

  • Pain after root canal - possible causes?

    I had a root canal about 30 hrs. ago (Tuesday morning), lower molar (#30). The dentist showed me the X-ray and explained that both root canals have been cleaned satisfactorily. The canals were filled and sealed and a temporary crown put on. I'm experiencing pain inside that tooth and around it, in the gum. According to the dentist, the pain is caused by the sealant irritating the ligaments under and around the canals. He said that the irritation is temporary and will disappear.

    I am concerned because I've had root canals and crowns put on before but have never experienced this type of pain after the procedure and nobody ever mentioned that the sealant could irritate the tissue.

    Has anyone had the same problem and if so, how did you solve it? Serious answers only, please. Thanks.

  • Why does my cat swat and nip at my hand?

    My cat is very calm, affectionate, sociable, and well mannered. She likes being petted and enjoys snuggling next to me while I read or watch TV. On 2 separate occasions, she was doing just that--sitting next to me, while I was doing something. All of a sudden, she leaned over, swatted at my hand and then reached down and nipped me. She doesn't have many teeth (many have had to be extracted due to decay) so the nips weren't painful. I'm just wondering why she did that. Was she asking for my attention? Any ideas what was going on?

    Thanks in advance for all serious answers!

  • Where does the bone come from?

    I just had a molar extracted and am thinking about getting a tooth implant. The periodontist says that I'll need a bone graft as Step 1 in the tooth implant process. Where does the bone come from?

    Please, only answers from people who either have personal experience with tooth implants or are in the profession. Thanks!

  • What should I do with my frostbitten corn plant?

    My corn plant was outside and got hit by a frost. All the leaves became limp, then brown, and then fell off. All that was left are the 2 main stems (the canes). A week ago, I saw 4 new shoots coming out from 4 different places in the pot. They don't seem to be attached to the 2 main stems.

    Question is:

    Do I cut down the 2 dead stems and just leave the new growths to develop?

    OR

    Do I need to leave the leafless stems in place? Will they grow new leaves some day?

    Serious answers only, please. Thanks in advance for all the information!

  • How do I make a book, published in Europe, accessible to U.S. readers?

    I have written a book and it was published in a European country. The book is in English, and now I'd like to make it accessible to readers in the United States. Do I need to obtain distribution rights from the publisher, or do I need a release from the publisher so that I can start looking for a publisher here? Please answer only if you know something specific. Thanks in advance!

  • Any advice about my cat's loss of appetite?

    My cat's appetite has changed a lot. When we noticed that she was shying away from her food and the food dishes, we took her to the vet. The vet took X-rays and said that the cat has some kind of intestinal inflammation for which she prescribed an antibiotic. She seemed to get better and is looking good--shiny coat, clear eyes, doesn't seem weak, calm. But, her appetite still isn't like it used to be. In order to provide her with nourishment, we started giving her milk--she loves it--and the sound of swishing milk brings her running to her food dish. She drinks it with pleasure but she doesn't eat almost anything else.

    I'm really reluctant to have the vet give her any more medicine because it obviously upsets her stomach on top of whatever else she is going on.

    I welcome advice, ideas, and suggestions. Thanks in advance!

  • Could my cat have undergone a personality change?

    She's about 10 yrs. old, we've had her for 3 yrs. now. She's very sociable, affectionate, well-mannered, and until 2 weeks ago was very enthusiastic about food. We're not sure what happened, she just stopped wanting to eat as much. The vet prescribed antibiotic for stomach inflammation and an appetite inducer. She eats well after taking her pill dose but otherwise, eats very little. Today, she's been reluctant to take her pills and has not eaten much. X-rays found nothing out of the ordinary. Also, she seems to shy away from her food dish--and that's very unusual for her.

    Any ideas or advice about the loss of appetite and the personality change?

    Thanks in advance!

  • How can I block someone from sending me E-mail?

    In one of the Yahoo groups I belong to, there are several rude people. I would like to block them so that they will not be able to send me E-mails. Is there a way to block the link which allows people to send me an E-mail (it appears in my profile) for that one group only?

    Thanks!

  • Does anyone know of a tracking device we can put on our cat's collar?

    Our cat is allowed outdoors and sometimes spends hours away from the house. We'd like to know where she goes. Someone told us that there are tracking devices for dogs. Has anyone heard of similar ones for cats?

  • Where does our cat go when she goes outdoors?

    Our cat is allowed to go outside and often does. She usually comes back rather quickly, but sometimes she's gone for several hours. We live in a quiet condominium complex where pretty much everyone knows her and knows she's ours. Anyone have an idea where the cat goes and what she does during this time? Is it possible that she spends the time at someone else's place? (She has a collar and tag so it's obvious she has a home.)

  • Why are some shelters requiring vaccinations and neutering?

    For the past 5 months, we've been feeding 2 cute cats. They show up twice a day for meals and otherwise roam around the neighborhood. We'd like to see them adopted into nice homes and have contacted several no-kill shelters in the Atlanta, GA area. They seem to prefer that cats (and all other animals) are vaccinated and neutered prior to being turned in to the shelter. We, on the other hand, believe that the person who wants to adopt that pet should be the one vaccinating and neutering the pet. Our responsibility is to make sure the animals get safely to a good shelter. The adoptive family's responsibility is to take on all the aspects of the pet's care and maintenance, starting with vaccinations and neutering.

  • Any idea what's going on with my cat?

    She just got up from her cat bed, and I noticed that she's favoring her right hind leg and is kind of jumping on the other one when walking. When I touched it (to see if I can spot a thorn or something), she hissed loudly and batted my hand. She never does that normally so, obviously, she's in some kind of distress. She ate normally and is purring slightly on her cat bed now. I'll be calling our vet tomorrow morning but any and all opinions and advice are welcome now!

    I'd like the opinion of people who are knowledgeable about cats and/or own cats. Thank you!

  • Can ClindaCure (Clindamycin) Oral Suspension cause constipation?

    Our cat has been taking ClindaCure (Clindamycin) Oral Suspension for over 2 weeks now (post-surgery for infection). Up until 2 days ago, she had no problems with her bowel movements. She hasn't had any in 2 days, though, which makes me wonder about the antibiotic's side effects. The brochure says it can cause diarrhea, not constipation. Any ideas?

  • Does cat litter absorb smells?

    We got "Yesterday's News" cat litter for our cat who doesn't normally use a liter box and goes to the bathroom outside (she's recuperating after surgery and can't go outside at the moment). It seems that she did pee in the box this morning but there's no unpleasant smell of any kind. Is it possible that this particular kind of litter completely eliminates the smell?
