    Post spay recovery - dissolvable stitches

    Yeah there are 2 stitches that are just external and go over the glue (knot on the outside)! I just took off her onesie to give her an opportunity to groom and I literally looked away for 2 seconds to answer my phone and she'd chewed on one of the stiches and undone one of the knots 🙈 The wound...

    Post spay recovery - dissolvable stitches

    That's good to know! I know I have a long day at work tomorrow and so I'll probably leave it on for the next 24h just so I don't stress to much about her during my shifts! She's been kept on strict no jumping/playing since the op and whilst she's definitely recovered she isn't quite like...

    Post spay recovery - dissolvable stitches

    Hiya, I just wondered if anyone had any experience with external dissolvable stitches and recovery time? The vet closed Sky's external spay incision with glue and two dissolvable stitches. He said its his preference with younger cats as its an extra layer of protection if the kitten gets a...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    I'm also based in NRW!! Agreed, she said that the litter was from a friend of hers, but there is of course no way for me to verify that! I had been in contact with the local shelter for months, I'd get in contact with them every time they had an indoor cat available, and even went to see a...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Hi all, Just to give you an update! After I didn't respond to her last request for one day, I received a second message simply with a bunch of question marks. At this point I recruited my German friend to help me write a succinct and to the point message to get my point across. Essentially it...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Hi all, thanks for your responses! We did have a (hand) written contract basically just saying that I would be responsible for all her medical care (she hadn't been to the vet at all and wasn't vaccinated, chipped, de-wormed or spayed) and that I wouldn't pass her around and just sell her on...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Agreed, thankfully between work, the pandemic and a new kitten I'm pretty busy so it doesn't really bother me other than annoying me when I see the notification coming up! And yes, I don't doubt that all those elements can peacefully Co exist, although I think Sky is greatful to have a bit of...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    I don't think it would go further, its more of an annoyance than truly concerning. She sent me a message this evening and I think I'll write a measured response tomorrow morning that since its been 6 weeks now I don't think weekly updates are necessary and I will send her updates each month...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Thanks for the quick response, yeah it's through WhatsApp. Where I live it's very common to sign short hand written 'protection contracts' privately like you would from a shelter and in there was a sentence that I would send updates, and honestly I really wouldn't mind sending them every so...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Hi all, I have a bit of an odd situation regarding Sky's previous owner that'd I'd appreciate some advice on. A bit of background, I put up adverts on some classifieds sites here in the country I live saying that I wanted to give a cat a new home whilst I was looking in shelters also. She got...

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    She certainly has a lot of energy! Instead of spreading her alloted dry food out to cover a 4am feed too I'll just give her an extra portion then 😊

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    Hiya, Ah yes I live in Europe 😂 So on the pouches of food the reccomend 200g/24hrs if you're only feeding that and her dry food reccomends 80g/24hrs if you're only feeding that. So she gets 50% of the reccomended total feeding portion of each, 100g wet and 40g dry. She's gaining weight...

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    Hiya, I guess I should have been more specific! She gets 50g (half a pouch) wet food in the AM. And the rest in the evening - the reccomended amount per day of the one I give her is 2 pouches a day so she gets 50% of that. Then I measured the dry food portions that come out the machine and she...

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    Hi all, I've had my sweet little Sky for about 4 weeks now, she is coming up on 5 months old. Very early on I realised having her in the bedroom with me at night isn't great for either of us, and since Day 1 she has been shut out of the bedroom. Usually sometime between 5am and 6am she uses...
