Question: My kitten Shasta is about 18 weeks old. Recently me and my boy friend have noticed that on the left side of her body its like a rib is stick up higher then the others. We've never noticed this before and she hasn't shown any pain nor do we know how it could of happened (she lives inside). You can see that there is a lump just by looking at her and you can feel it pretty well but she doesn't seem to be in any sort of pain. She has a appoint soon enough for another problem that shes had since she was born and I just don't know if I should bring her in or wait. She had all of her kitten shots also with the last set being just 2 weeks ago so whatever this is it wasn't showing then. I really need some honest answers from someone who may know. We've already been to the vet a lot and shes about to go in a week to have surgery. I want to take care of her but if this is something that can wait till that check up it needs to but if it something that could cause major problems then she needs to go... I just don't know. The lump feels like a rib. Its between other ribs and its just as if the rib has slid up. It doesn't seem broken but I know you can't really feel that. I can rub on it and she doesn't show any problems and shes just as playful as always. I think I will call in the morning to be sure though just in case. I just hope it can wait. Shes seen the vet to much in her young life already (she has a slight anal prolapse and so shes seen the vet 6 times already in the 12 weeks we've had her plus the 2 visits to get take care of tape worms.)

Good idea just to call the vet about it. Regarding anal prolapse, a rescue league I worked with put a dog on Shark's Cartilage to help a prolapse of another sensitive area. It actually helped, when the vet was going to charge for a $400 surgery. Surgery was cancelled and the dog was placed into a nice adoptive home. You might consider seeing how much Shark's Cartilage a kitten of her age can eat and try it, if it is O.K. for cats.

How to move on from your ex: Remove Old Photos: Make sure there are no photos of you and your ex lying around the house. You could be having a great day and then all of a sudden go into a drawer and find a photo of the two of you hugging in a swimming pool. While you may not have gotten sunburned at the pool, you might have gotten burned by your ex and you don't need to be reminded of it. Pack up all of the photos and put them in a box far away from any place you could stumble upon it. Save cell phone pictures to a folder in a location you never or rarely go to. Go New Places: Going to the same restaurants, caf├ęs and coffee shops that you went to with your ex should be off your radar. It's best to find new places with new faces. Don't go into places where they know you as a couple when you want the world to now know you as a single person. Remove Cell Phone Reminders: Delete any old voicemail messages or texts from your ex. That birthday text message your former partner sent you last year might have been cute then, but if you stumble upon it now it loses its luster. Clear out your inbox and make room for all the new messages and possibilities. Select New Music: Don't listen to songs that remind you of your ex. There's nothing like making an effort to put your ex out of your mind and then the song that played when you started dating starts up on your iPod. Clear the decks and make a new playlist. Login to Your New Life: The Internet probably contains many reminders of your ex. Your Facebook may need the biggest clean-up. Head in there and delete any photos with both of you together. Also, the friends that went over to your ex's side of the fence once the split happened should be unfriended immediately. Think Positive Thoughts: It's not just physical things that can remind you of your ex. Thoughts that we have can change our outlook on life, so think positively. Don't remind yourself of all of the things your ex did that you couldn't stand. Instead, be positive and focus on all of the things you're going to achieve in your new life. Make Notes of Your Progress: Write down the progress that you're making as a new single person. Get a journal and put down your thoughts as they come to you. List where you've been and where you're headed. This will keep your eye on the prize -- happiness.

I know that when that happens to people in similar cases, it really drags down their self-esteem. To get over anything in life, you have to accept. You just keep living life normally and I guarantee you'll find a better guy along the way. And when you do, you won't even remember your retarded ex :) Just show him that you're fine without him and better off too.

If you're really worried about it, I'd call the vet and ask if he thinks you should bring her in now. If this just showed up, I'm be worried about it. She could have some kind of injury. Better to be safe, than sorry later.

Forget getting into more debt for education if you're not sure about what you want to do. Find a job now to pay the bills and you'll figure out what you want to be when you grow up along the way. It takes some of us a while to figure it out - I was 25 before I went back to college. You're spending hours a day researching careers online... start applying for jobs. Find retail stores and/or restaurants and go apply in person.
