Can cats get mosquito bites?
My male cat,Chino, is very loving and stays in the house these hot days, but goes out at night when it is cooler. He knows what to do. I have a doggie door and he goes out when he feels like it. Sometimes it is raining and he hurries back in to me... as though I could do something about it. He only likes Salmon in a certain kind of can, and Meow Mix dry food. The one thing he does that I don't like is to jump on me about 3:00 am and bite my face and the buttons om my PJs. Why does he do this and only to me?.
my 20 year old blue point Siamese has to be helped to stay in a cool place.He gets lost and needs to be shown where to lie down.He wants to lie in the sun on the back porch .I only let him if it is under 80 degrees.
This is ridiculous. If humans haven't tampered with animals DNA and made them dependent on us this article wouldn't even nee to be written. Animals in nature can take care of themselves and the weak ones that can't die off and the strong survive. I am so sick of people having animals as slaves but claim that they are just pets. BS
Peta Member? Love you crazies.

I know this is a cat allergy page but I have a question I hope can be answered, what makes my cat poop a gelatinous bloody stool sometimes?

The allergy issue is a known problem for some breeds of cats. Our Flame Point (Siamese white) was allergic to wool (just like her mommy!) and she broke out in hives (or whatever cat's get), which later itched and she chewed or rubbed to sores... tender little ears can get easily get infected, so this was the first place we noticed problems. The vet thought it was mites, but we noticed, she LOVED rubbing everywhere on a wool blanket and then would proceed to have a scratching fit... we got rid of the blanket, with some salve and time, she never had the problem again... when we brought a wool blanket in again, yep, repeat issues. Trial and error is helpful... Also, be wary of some foods, check for corn additives, many of my cats have had oil issues and dandruff because of poor nutrition from and was misdiagnosed for other ailments, not allergies.
We live in Florida where its hot most of the time. We have 3 cats, 2 adults and 1 kitten.The adult cats are allowed outside when the sun is going down in a 6' vinyl fenced yard where we have a pool and landscaped area with trees and shade. We have clean cool water for them to drink. They love it and are never overheated. The kitten will not be outside until she is 1 year old. Whenever the adults hear thunder or lightening they want to be inside the house.
where's the picture?
I believe your flea drops are causing your problem. We previously used a cheap version of these drops that we purchased at a big box store (I won't name the name as you would be VERY familiar with it) in order to try to save money. For 2 years 3 of our cats suffered with this problem of losing hair just as your is. We had them in for several vet visits and spent tons of money on expensive medications, all for naught. We finally switched them to a veterinary sponsored flea & tick preventative that was initially more expensive. Wish we had never tried to scrimp and save money on the cheap retail store stuff. It cost us way more in vet bills and medicines than if we had simply purchased the good stuff to begin with from our vet. Now we use the product on the cats that kills fleas, ticks AND ear mites! Their hair has grown back and all the sores on their back end and legs are gone. Stop using that cheap junk and buy the good stuff from your vet, for the sake of your kitty's health. She is allergic to that nasty stuff in the cheap product. Good luck!!! V. Hurst, Dallas, TX
