    Best litter for cat with asthma?

    I just discovered grass litter because I could not stand the dust from all the other brands (especially Worlds Best). It’s been so much better and much less dust. I clean the box multiple times a day so the odor is never an issue for us. I use the Chewy brand from Frisco.

    Probiotic at the same time as prednisolone?

    I’m sorry your going through this. I have also recently been dealing with a kitten with chronic diarrhea and it’s been tough and I’ve tried multiple things too. I was recommended by users here to try the probiotic S. Boulardi as it seems to have helped many kitties suffering from diarrhea. I...

    4 month old kitten with chronic diarrhea

    Update: It’s been 8 days since Luna finished her 15 day course of Metro. I have been giving her a capsule of Nexabiotic daily (half in morning, half in evening) and her stools have been perfect! One other very important detail was I stopped feeding her the prescription diet my vet recommended...

    Stinky love bug - my cat expresses anal sacs when happy

    Ahh yes. Those blarts can clear out a whole room and you definitely need to wash everything after!

    Stinky love bug - my cat expresses anal sacs when happy

    My vet said this is perfectly normal (from some cats!) and that releasing the glands will not make a difference in fact she said she had a cat that did this too. She was the one that gave me the tip of keeping blankets or towels around to put on your lap for love sessions.

    Stinky love bug - my cat expresses anal sacs when happy

    I should also add this behavior is very different from actually fully expressing their sacs. It is a very small amount and clear but pungent.

    Stinky love bug - my cat expresses anal sacs when happy

    Are any of you lucky owners of cats that release that foul smelling liquid when loving them up? I had no idea this even happened until my newly adopted kitten started doing this. He does it almost every time I love him up. The smell is beyond gross and embarrassing especially when we have...

    4 month old kitten with chronic diarrhea

    I’ll keep this in mind I will keep this in mind. I don’t want to make any changes to her diet just yet. She’s had a few days of good poop and I’m hoping it stays this way or gets better. I did consider allergies to chicken but my vet doesn’t think that’s the case because she’s still a kitten...

    Kitten pees when sleeping

    Just adding an update. Vet looked him over and doesn’t see anything that looks concerning. He also hasn’t had any leakage since last week so we will continue to monitor and if he has more leaks while sleeping my vet says we can do an ultrasound.

    4 month old kitten with chronic diarrhea

    We tried pumpkin too but I think my kitten’s diarrhea was far more chronic and has been very hard to treat. 🫤 I’m hoping probiotics help her now since she just finished her round of antibiotics for the inflammation.

    4 month old kitten with chronic diarrhea

    So my vet extended the Metro for 5 more days because 10 days only slightly improved. Today is day one she is off it so fingers crossed that it doesn’t get worse. I’m also continuing giving her probiotics and being consistent with her food for as long as it takes. While on the metro her...

    4 month old kitten with chronic diarrhea

    My vet does not suspect food allergy because she’s so young. Still on the metro which helped but her stool is still not consistently good. It goes from formed soft to paste soft.

    Kitten pees when sleeping

    My vet confirmed that this is not normal so she wants to see him next week. She said it could be an anatomical issue so she will examine him thoroughly. He’s only done it twice so far and I’ve been sniffing everything he sleeps on. It might just happen every so often. I’m really hoping it’s...

    Kitten pees when sleeping

    Sorry! I meant kitten. He is four and a half months old. So it can just be he is a deep sleeper and is that normal? He uses the litte box just fine and recently had bloodwork done and was good. I left a message with me vet to see what she thinks. I just was curious if this was a kitten thing or...

    Kitten pees when sleeping

    I have 4 and a half month old neutered male kitten that sometimes lets out a little urine while he sleeps. It’s happened now twice in the past few days ( in two different spots). Is this normal? He uses the litter box fine to pee so why would this be happening? Also any recommendations on...
