    FIP? Help :(

    First off I have no experience with FIP. I do have a cat with a sensitive stomach, possible IBS/IBD. He would eat a certain food for months then all of a sudden diarrhea. Sometimes he refuses to eat more than just a spoonful of a different/new food at meal times until his stomach settles. This...

    Tough Time Dealing With Chotu The Stray

    I could definitely see a child's book about Chotu adventure. Especially since he escaped from his carrier. I'm certain it was quite stressful at the time. However I think children would find his story very interesting. Your journey is definitely one that could help children understand empathy &...

    Continuing to pray more drivers will sign up for Saturday's transport of Heart, Cowboy & Autumn. A special prayer for Tom & Harry and Timmy.

    Tough Time Dealing With Chotu The Stray

    I believe Chotu will adjust to his new home as long as you stay positive. Give him time to feel comfortable before introducing the dogs. As already mentioned watch how he reacts & work at a pace he is comfortable with. Make his new world fun with a cat tree or wall shelves, toys & play time...

    My Feral And Rescued Cats

    I also have the kitty alarm system in my home. The alerts will vary depending on which kitty is on duty. Of course our dog has become the 1st level to our system recently. Took him about a year to discover his guard duty capabilities. "Oh, i suppose to bark when someone comes in our yard? Got...

    Does Euthanasia Make Sense For My Tripod Kitty?

    I'd consider seeing a specialist if that's a possibility. I have no experience with disabled animals, but there are a lot of vidoes showing how these animals are thriving. Many have wheels that provide mobility & appear to do well. Think it would depend on the individual animal's overall health...

    Itching Above Eyes

    Well, Pumpkin has started itching again. He has scratched a bare spot between his shoulder blades. I did notice him scratched a little either last night right before bed or this morning. But he was fine when he was visiting with me last night. Likes to get petted after supper most nights. I've...

    Not Stomatitis

    Wondering if you had the follow up appoinment? Curious since my two guys (almost 8 & 9 yo) both have stomatitis type symptoms. Only the youngest had had a dental cleaning (think its been 3 1/2 years), no extractions. The oldest probability needs a cleans (redness along gum line upper back...

    Somewhat Unadoptable Misfit Cats Available For Forever Homes...

    Sending positive thoughts & prayers for Tom's safe return. Perhaps he needed one more adventure before settling down with his new family. I can see him tell the other cats in his new home all about his previous life. Also praying that drivers will help Heart, Cowboy (I'm still thinking of him...

    Tough Time Dealing With Chotu The Stray

    I have NO experience with feral or semi feral cats. However, I also think if you leave the crate open & place a blanket or towel, treats & a toy inside this may encourage him to go in. I'd try playing with him around the crate (door open). Use a string toy to entice him near the crate, on top of...

    Itching Above Eyes

    Yeah sometimes its a good idea to get another opinion. We had to see the other vet this morning. Feels like I have to ask more questions as she doesn't really explain things. No discussion, just doing this & this to resolve skin issue. No options like would you prefer antibiotic meds or shot...

    Itching Above Eyes

    Update on Pumpkin after vet appointment. The scape on leg/hip area is a hot spot from possible insect bit or some other allergen. Eyebrow area also appears to be allergy related. Seasonal maybe. Not ear mites or fleas. He got 2 injections - Convenia (antibiotic) & a steriod. Expects improvment...

    Itching Above Eyes

    Sorry to hear you haven't found a solution for Snowball. I'd like to give the Revolution time to work as I'm afraid I'll waste time & money only to be told wait & see or not sure try this and come back if it doesn't help. That tends to get expensive. It could be weather/seasonal allergies as...

    Itching Above Eyes

    This is the best I could do. This side is a bit puffy. Guess I know how I'll be spending my Saturday morning. No appointments as its first come, first seen. Its a 45 minute drive there & my vet is off.
