Eye area Hi I'm after some ointment I could use occasionally on the area between my cats eye nose under eye area that sometimes looks a bit sore if there has been build up taken off only happens sometimes I just don't want to make it worse by inflammation by using something that is not for this very sensitive area

Solution:
Hi, Rather than an ointment you may do better with either Fidos Tear Stain remover or Eye Wipes. These are both designed to be used around the eyes and are great for exactly what you are looking for.

Urinating on the lounge My cat keeps urinating on the lounge, I haven't tried any home remedies or any shelf bought products to prevent it as it has only recently been a regular occurrence the past few weeks. Please help, whats my best option to get rid of the smell and stop him from constantly urinating on the lounges.

Solution:
This is a fairly common but obviously distressing problem. First, in some cases the cause is lower urinary tract disease, so you need to rule this out with a visit to the vet before trying the behavioural solutions. To remove the stain and odour, two great products are Urine-free and Urine-off, there are links to them below. To help prevent the behaviour in the first place Feliway is the most commonly successful product. But again, please rule out lower urinary tract disease before you do anything else.

Sucking on my inner elbow Syko is a 10 month old rescued desexed male, and at night he snuggles into me and sucks and nibbles on my inner elbow. He has done this ever since we adopted him, at 6 weeks of age. We do not know his previous history. Is this due to his mother not feeding him for long enough when he was a younger kitten? Why does he do this? Is there any way to stop him, without distressing him as well? I have given him a number of small soft toys to chew and play with, which interests him, but he still continues with the sucking/chewing, particularly at night. Do you think this will go on for the rest of his life? Our Vet was unsure, and suggested the soft toys, but this has not worked. Any ideas?

Solution:
This is a very common behaviour in cats, and nothing to be concerned about. Many of them continue to do it well into adulthood. It is similiar to the "padding" that so may cats do before settling down, ie using the front paws to push up and down on a soft object. Kittens do this to stimulate milk flow from their mother's teats. Again, don't be concerned about this, even if it continues for some time.
