Your Coton Questions

It's crazy how fast time is flying this summer. I've been busy with family and traveling and it seems I blinked and it's almost Autumn. Luc has mellowed quite a bit over the years and now I've got people fighting over who gets to keep him when I'm traveling. He didn't even get mad when I adopted a new cat last month. He's such a sweetheart!

I've had a few visitors tell me recently that their questions on the website aren't being answered. Please make sure that if you have a question, you start a new thread and don't just ask the question in the comments of someone else's question.

Here are links to the most common types of questions:

Grooming questions

Dog food questions

Behavior questions

General questions

And remember, if your question isn't being published at all, it's likely because the question has already been asked and answered several times. You can do a search on the website to find out if that's the case.
