My one-year-old kitten eats clothes and charging cords. She appears to be healthy, has a shiny coat and eyes, a strong appetite, is very active, and has lots of toys - but she just has this one horrible habit.

I recently adopted a dog from the shelter with an unknown vaccination history. I have an appointment to get her vaccinated for rabies on Thursday.

Should I be worried?
My cat doesn't get along with other cats, but I want to get another one. Is there something I can do to help them get along?
