• Is it possible to get rid of the stench of a male cat's urine spraying on shoes or bags (of leather or relacement)?

    Best answer: Probably, but not easily. An enzymatic cleaner is best. Nature's Miracle is the easiest to get. But there are probably even stronger ones.

    An enzymatic cleaner is best. Nature's Miracle is the easiest to get. But there are probably even stronger ones. My vet told me that Anti-Icky-Poo is stronger.
    Good quality leather can generally withstand being soaked, and you have to soak it with this to get results. First rinse well with plain water to get some of the urine off. Then when it is only damp, soak well with the enzymatic cleaner and let it air dry. The liquid has to get as far in as the urine did, and if you didn't manage this, the smell will come back, though not as strong. You will have to thoroughly soak it again.
    If the leather is stiff after this treatment, you can massage it with leather conditioner or neetsfoot oil.
    Imitation leather generally tolerates water very well, and is easier to deal with than regular leather. In some cases you might even be successful with soaking in white vinegar for a day or two, which is cheaper. Then the item will smell of vinegar, though, so you soak it briefly with baking soda dissolved in water, which will remove the vinegar smell.
    The enzymes in these cleaners are specifically to neutralize pee and poop type smells and stains; they should not damage anything, though of course you should read the instructions and warnings.

  • Why did three puppies die in a litter of 11 after vaccinations>?

    We are purchasing a puppy, they were checked by the vet last week at their 7 week appointment, were vaccinated and sent home. Everything was fine, but then a few started to get sick and one died. Then over the weekend 2 more died, and two more were ill, but got better. We are hesitant to move forward, and don t know if it s hereditary or if it s just a fluke with a few of the weaker pups. When the pups were checked over the weekend, (due to the other two dying), one had worms - they were then all treated for worms again. The puppy we re getting has been fine the whole time. Has this ever happened before? We re paying over $1,000 for the puppy, and just don t want to get screwed in the long run. I know it s always a gamble - but we thought it was strange three died after vaccinations. HELP!

    Best answer: Sounds like you're really feeling a lot of anxiety about riding. Are you over mounted, Angelina? Is your horse really more than you can handle right now? Because that's the single biggest cause of the kind of anxiety you're experiencing. You won't be the first person to bite off more than you can chew comfortably, nor will you be the last. For some of us, admitting that we're not the right match for a particular horse is really HARD. I had to do this a few years ago with the mare I used to own. At times, it still bugs me that I couldn't overcome the issues I had with her.

    Once you get to the bottom of whatever is causing your anxiety about riding, these premonitions you keep having will drop away. Until then, I don't blame you for being on your guard. I would be too.

  • What can I do to make it easier to trim my cats'claws?

    Best answer: My cat used to always be a fight as well. Back when I was single, I typically had to pick her up, sit down on the couch with a gap between me and the armrest just wide enough for her, and drop her in that gap on her back with her facing the back of the couch. That way, I could use my elbow to pin her down and still... show more
    Best answer: My cat used to always be a fight as well. Back when I was single, I typically had to pick her up, sit down on the couch with a gap between me and the armrest just wide enough for her, and drop her in that gap on her back with her facing the back of the couch. That way, I could use my elbow to pin her down and still have access to her back feet (she is front-declawed). Now that I have someone else in the house, One of us cradles the cat like a baby while the other clips the claws.

    Another option would be Claw Caps. They are basically press-on nails that keep the cat from scratching, and typically last about 5 weeks before you have to replace them. Eventually, you still have to trim the claws, but it becomes infrequent enough that you can make that part of a normal vet visit.

    Best answer: Declawing a cat is a really big decision, and one that can have permanent repercussions for you and your animal. I'll try to summarize some information for you.

    Declawing a cat is no simple procedure. It's not simply like trimming their nails or even cutting them off entirely. A cats claw is actually infused with their finger, so declawing them is basically like chopping off part of their fingers. If you want to compare it with a human procedure, it would be likely chopping off your fingers where they bend. It is very painful for the cat and has been banned in many countries for being inhumane.

    While declawing a cat obviously removes the risk that they will scratch you and damage your house, it poses other risks. Many cats are reported to have mood changes after the operation, and some tend to be more aggressive and bite more (and a cat's bite is MUCH more dangerous than getting scratched). Declawing also takes away their natural weapon- should your cat ever find himself against another animal, he will have not way to defend himself.

    In summary, you CAN declaw your cat. It's not the end of the world for the cat, and many declawed cats live healthy, happy lives. But it's a BIG decision to consider, and it may have negative repercussions for you and your kitty.

He doesn’t scratch at furntiture or anything really unless he’s feeling possessive, but my little sister is scared of him for some reason and his scratches so we decided to clip them. Does it feel any pain at all? I’m making sure not to clip right to the end, i’m only trimming really. But i’m still scared i’ll do some damage.
