  • Can we get a dog back after we "surrendered" it?

    Some background information: I'm 20, been living with my mom and two sisters while I attend college the next town over, though this month I dropped out so I can go live with my dad and (hopefully) more easily find work (then eventually attend college there).

    Some background information: I'm 20, been living with my mom and two sisters while I attend college the next town over, though this month I dropped out so I can go live with my dad and (hopefully) more easily find work (then eventually attend college there). We have two dogs, one I'll be taking with me, and two cats. At the beginning of December, I found a puppy under my car. We kept her while we tried to find her a home (because we knew mom wouldn't be willing to keep her) ideally to a friend or someone we know and trusted. After no luck on that front, my mom pushed us to give her away to a no kill shelter out of state. None of us wanted to go through with this as we all grew very attached to her. Despite this, my sisters and I drove to where the representative of the shelter asked us to meet them, gave her away, and then left. My sister has been talking it over with me and she said that since I'm moving soon, they could take on another pet. We talked it over with ma and she doesn't think it'll work out due to us "surrendering" her to the shelter, but says if we can make it work, she'd allow it. Now this is the key thing: we never signed anything that said we surrendered her. I'm thinking if they'd be willing to transfer her to a shelter near where my family lives, we can get her back. Considering all these factors: could we get this dog back?

  • How many cats would be your current household limit?

    Best answer: 1.
    I live in a small apartment, and my current cat does not like other cats. For me to have another cat, and to have them both be happy, I would need more space so the two can each claim their own room.

  • My elderly dog is doing weird things... are they normal?

    My soon to be 16 year old Chihuahua keeps going to the bathroom about 10 times per night mostly to pee. He also drinks a lot of water. He's also sleeping a lot more than usual. Nearly all day long. So are these behaviors normal or do I need to take him to the vet?

  • I recently got puppy and training it is harder then I thought.?

    Best answer: TAKE HIM OUT to poop, every couple of hours . This means someone has to be watching him for the signs that he needs to go. Take him immediately to where you want him to go, and praise him excitedly when he goes there. The smacking and nose-running will just confuse him. He has no idea why you are doing that. Signs... show more

    Signs that he has to go: whining and circling, maybe while sniffing the ground.You have to be quick, before he goes. He will get better at "holding it" as he grows up, but puppies don't have that kind of control yet.

  • What does it mean when a cat lightly bites you?

    Best answer: Sometimes it's because they're grooming you or giving you love bites. At other times it's due to light playfulness. Then there are times when it's warning you to not keep petting it or keep petting it on a certain part of its body--especially if the cat has arthritis and the hips hurt, the cat... show more
    Best answer: Sometimes it's because they're grooming you or giving you love bites. At other times it's due to light playfulness. Then there are times when it's warning you to not keep petting it or keep petting it on a certain part of its body--especially if the cat has arthritis and the hips hurt, the cat hates having its belly rubbed because that makes it feel vulnerable always or at the moment, for example.

    Love bites during a cozy moment are a bit like the love the kitty felt when it was nursing as a kitten. Sometimes it's just a little nibble with a bit of a sucking or kissing action.

    Then there is the bite that says, HEY you are not giving me enough attention.

    Cats without claws (don't declaw your cat) will bite because they feel vulnerable--not having claws is a painful thing that is similar to cutting the first joint of each of your fingers. It makes a cat act out because it can no longer protect itself--an because it's in pain, which makes anybody angry or grouchy.

    What's great is if one jumps on the back of your sofa or armchair and starts chewing your hair to groom you (it's biting your hair out of love, and that means you are considered family).

  • HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

    My 4-month old cat is very weak and won't eat or drink and stares for too long after she went home wet and dirty. It looks like she fell down on the canal but i'm not sure. I treat her with amoxicillin antibacterial because I really can't afford a vet.

    The cat itself has sores all over it s body from flea bites and was deemed anemic from blood loss via fleas. The tablet given should get rid of the fleas within 24 hours and she has also been put on antibiotics to help with skin infections. Should I bathe her to help her skin? She s pretty unfriendly and can be aggressive when scared and I don t want to stress her out too much, or get battle scars myself. I know cats are self-cleaning, but in such bad condition should I consider bathing her, or will all be well without it?
