In order of probability... With the engine hot and turned off, check your radiator (upper and lower) hoses and connection for leaks. Then your heater hoses, (2 garden hose size hoses) that come out of the firewall about where the glove box is on the inside.

Check your water pump for a leak in the front, right in the center where there is the seal around the shaft that spins it.

Visually inspect both sides of your radiator. Sometimes you can "hear it" leaking but can't see it. Park over some spread out newspaper and look for a wet spot in 30-45 mins. You can replace your radiator cap for $6. Do it.

Next the heater hoses go to the heater coil (what heats the air when you have the heater on). It is very difficult to check that coil as you have to remove your dash. Signs that is leaking are bad smell inside or steam/fog on the windshield above the glove box.

If its your hoses or the water pump, replace them along with the clamps. If the hoses are original you should replace them anyway. Temporary repair can be done with duct tape when the engine is cold. If your radiator is leaking, it can be removed and soldered. For a temporary fix you can add a product like Bars Leak to your coolant. Its a solution that contains copper and will stop up the hole as it leaks out. But it will turn your coolant milky white and when you sell the car, mechanics will know you have a leak.

More uncommon is head gasket leak which is the seal between your intake manifold and the cylinder heads or a leak around the thermostat. Normally steam or liquid will be visible on the intake manifold. Bars Leak might help this leak. To replace the head gasket and thermostat, you'd need to remove your intake manifold and change the seal. was $2000 for my Lincoln.

Then the dreaded cracked head or block allowing steam into one of the cylinders. That would probably be accompanied by poor engine performance as you'd be running 5 instead 6 cylinders. To check for that you would pull your spark plugs out and look at them. If one looks like its tip is covered in tar replace it and check again in about a month. If it looks like tar again, then coolant is getting in that cylinder. Bars Leak may stop this kind of leak but probably only temporary. A cylinder head or block prolly costs you a new engine.

Hello, Gail -

I am not a vertinarian. However, I do know there is more than one ailment which can affect a cat's eyes. Most of them can be serious. Make an appointment with your veterinarian to have your cat's eyes examined SOON!

Best wishes.

He may not be your cat. Sometimes cats have multiple houses. If he wont come near you, he may not want to bond with you. He may have another owner that you are unaware of. But if you got him new and he was always inside then he may come around. Just feed him and be patient. Cats are more smart than we give them credit for.

Hey Cornelia, poor Sokkies probably just needs some TLC. If the swelling is not discoloured ( like a bruise ) and nipples are not cracked or bloody. The standard remedy for this condition is to use warm, moist cloths to massage the swollen tissue 4-5 times a day to help with the inflammation and make her more comfortable while time helps to resolve the problem by stopping the production of milk. However if she has a fever or any of the above mentioned symptoms, please see y

I understand your problem that now you will have difficulty ridding yourself of - if you really want to.
Cats are much abused and neglected by ill-informed and ill-intentioned people.

If you wish to help cats in need in your area I suggest you contact a Cat Protection League for advice and maybe thinking about starting your own branch of this worthwhile charity.

You could register as a charity, pester the local press and radio stations and ask local stores for donations of food and approach animal welfare/protection organisations and veterinarians to obtain low cost or free help and advice.
Many stores will allow charities to place a bin and a suitable sign asking for food donations either next to the checkouts or at the store entrance.

Good luck!

If it's a political question, they lean to the left, so those answers are the least accurate. My understanding is that on neutral issues they're pretty truthful, but I would check with multiple sources to be sure.

First of all make sure you have assembled it correctly and there is no obstructions, if you have the instructions. You can probably contact the company that might send pieces to help repair the litter box.
