Hello and merry Christmas,

Is Teddy an only pet?

Ask Your Own Cat Question
Cat Vet: Terri, Feline Healthcare Expert replied 7 months ago

By now Teddy is no longer influenced by hormones hence he is not seeking females. His desire to go outside is a normal instinct.

Once cats get a taste of the outdoors they crave the streets.

Unfortunately, the only way to stop this behavior is to refuse to allow him out. He will cry and protest for a few days but eventually get used to being an indoor kitty

You can help by providing pleny of interactive toys and a feline friend.

KarenJackson Heights, NY

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
