Hi,

Thanks for the responses. I will take a look and see if she is swollen and taker her to the vet right away. It just seemed so odd. We never thought about UTI because we hadn't had to deal with that before.

Maxx is finding her very "interesting" if you know what I mean, and he is neutered. Plus, we've been finding "dr...

Mytwodoxies,

If you could post an updated "needs" list, I will post it to another board that I am a member of. They have a ton of members (over 8000) and hopefully we could grab a couple of helpers.
