Made a thread about my puss a couple of months back asking for advice about aftercare for her surgery wound. (I gather you hate being asked medical advice that boils down to 'TAKE IT TO A VET NOW!', I hope this doesn't qualify)
She's recovered physically, but evidently the overnight stay at the vets was somewhat traumatic for her. She's displaying several of the signs of abandonment anxiety, excessive grooming, determination to stay in my vicinity, increased vocalization and so on. While it's lovely having her being so much more affectionate for me, it's clearly going to do her no good long term with all the extra stress incurred when I come and go.
So I was hoping you'd be able to share some advice and wisdom, I'm rubbish at feline psychology and I hate to see her stressed by all this stuff. (She's evidently having nightmares fairly often too)

Trying to find a good dog for my younger sister. Been looking at animal shelters and rescues.
Is it just in the NYC area or are rescues insane? I asked about a yorkie mix that I saw on their website and the lady informed me that it doesn't work like that. In order to be approved for adoption, I have to fill out a survey about my lifestyle, provide three references (not including the one from my vet and landlord), open my home to one of these rescue workers so that they can inspect my apartment and only then do I get 'pre-approved' for adoption. After paying the 550 dollar adoption fee, I would get an email concerning the dog that THEY think is best for me.
Idk about you, but I'd rather go to the animal shelter, pay 50 bucks and pick out my own damn dog.
