    It's National Pet Month in the United States. Aside from the love and affection that pets bring into our children's lives, they benefit our kids in so many more ways.

    <p>Our 12 year old cat was just diagnosed with hyperthyroidism.  We're going to start medication, but are wondering if the radiation treatment to eliminate the problem is better.  We've had conflicting feedback on the best course moving forward (medication didn't solve the issue vs. radiation...

    <p>We adopted two cats to live in our barn.  One has warmed up to us very quickly and seems very happy.  The other is always hiding when I am out there.  Strangely, she was the friendlier cat of the two at the shelter.  How long should I give her before I decide that we are not a good fit?</p>

    <p>I have 4 cats and they go through phases where they start peeing in the house.  I have no idea why and it often ends as mysteriously as it starts.  But anyway, I cannot get the smell out of where they pee.  It seems like no matter how much I clean it, it still smells and then they still go...
