    Sleeping all day and not playing

    I agree I think he's got a fever too. Good you are taking him in.

    Has he been outside at all?

    Sleeping all day and not playing

    It's not normal for a 12 week old kitten to sleep so much. Fever will cause this. Has he had any vaccines?

    Limping cat - soft tissue damage

    Crate rest, as hard on us as it is to see them unhappy and caged, it is the best way to heal a soft tissue injury.

    Sleeping all day and not playing

    It may very well be due to constipation, but it can be that he is constipated due to eating/drinking less. The key regardless of cause is to be sure his intake of fluid and water is as much as usual or close to it as possible every day. 12 week olds have just a very small reserve and will go...

    7mo old Cat positive with FPV! HELP!

    I can't tell you what to do, it's surprising he is still alive after having it for a week honestly, and surely due to his care at the vet. He might be lucky and pull through, it happens, but honestly more often not. I'm sure it's running up quite a bill, and he may still not make it. But then...

    7mo old Cat positive with FPV! HELP!

    Panleuk is extremely contagious and hearty. A cat can pee in the grass, the winter time the ground freezes and is covered in snow, then in the spring the grass regrows and the panleuk is back, it survived in the grass seed. One tough virus... A kitten's core vaccines, the series of 3 will...

    Red Gums in 7 months old kitten

    You can likely bet it is stomatitis. 7 month olds don't normally get inflamed gums unless they have an immune system that's over reacting, attacking the teeth thinking they don't belong there. If it is, it is an ongoing, painful problem. In the end, it's inevitable to have all teeth removed...

    Young cat with recurring sores on mouth, face and body

    It sounds like calici sores, do they look like little blisters or bumps? Any on toes at all, or tongue?

    Need input - FIV+ and FIV- cats living together. Risks/Concerns

    What a great feeling to see a better/brighter day, even if they're sporatic! It's a heavy weight to bare at the point where we question if/when it's 'time'. Seeing some of his old self is surely his way of saying, not time mom. Maybe even some hope that with taking the med, he may get back to...

    Need input - FIV+ and FIV- cats living together. Risks/Concerns

    My Simone would clean her face after eating but stopped grooming herself. Hard to imagine a pure white Persian NOT grooming, the coat is so dense and baby fine, a strand would literally float in the air. Then the undercoat would matt very fast and tight. :please: What a nightmare. That was a big...

    Need input - FIV+ and FIV- cats living together. Risks/Concerns

    Very nice of you to give an update, it's been a long time since this thread, and so sorry to hear the struggles you and he are going through at this point. I was feeling emotional as I read this update, then reading that he's having a better day today helped a lot. Emotional because I went...

    Flat Chested Kitten Syndrome??

    Oh my gosh, do you have any idea how often I think of our Fonzie??!! I have some sort of bond to him, I can't explain it but honestly he has never faded from my memory, and even though it's ben so long since hearing from you and how he was doing, I just knew he was a happy boy and knew he had a...

    vaccine question(s)

    I meant to reply to the OP's comment/question as well regarding tracking viruses in to the house from outside. In case anyone is not aware, Panleuk virus is extremely hearty and stabile, and can/does live for 18 months on surfaces, fomites (anything that absorbs, clothing, towels, furniture...
