    Belling cats

    They sure help us to know where they are in the house lol! They're chipped so they should be ok. I definitely don't want anything else hanging on the collar. They're kiiind of in an enclosure because they rarely, maybe 2x a year and 1 cat, go over the fence. But that doesn't keep wildlife...

    Belling cats

    I saw the long thread about whether to bell or not, but didn't want to necro that one just to make this point. I haven't seen or read of this happening before, so I just wanted to share this here. My cats are indoor/outdoor and I have belled them for years because of the local wildlife and...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    I was just referring to this forum to let a friend of mine know what to watch for/do about vaxxing her cat, but hadn't seen your post before. How'd it go with your kitten, Anna?

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    I think the IV helped mine a bit, because she was a little dehydrated, though she passed the scruff test for that here. But I think the antibiotics helped more than anything. He was saying that 'fever has a purpose,' which I agree with, but she was sick for too long for it to just be something...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    Yes, my big cat, Buddy, had the lump at the injection site. I read that it's not uncommon, and to wait a month after the shots before becoming worried, or if it becomes bigger. His did go away. It got a little bigger, then slowly absorbed. I'm guessing it was a cyst. My little one, who was...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    We didn't go the route of an ultrasound, because the other vet there said we'd probly be ok just watching her for a while before doing that. They were finally able to get some urine and it was fine, and he said that that made the other test that said she might have kidney issues a lot less...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    Ok, so check this out. I forgot the exact test names, because we were on the phone and I was kind of freaked out already, but the blood tests show elevation in sdma (?) and something bun creatin? and something else, all which are slightly elevated and show inflammation. She was slightly...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    She seems to be feeling a tiny bit better, getting out into the main house a little more, and sitting on Daddy's lap. Still mostly back here, tho. Eating fine, but still seems to be losing weight. Tried to pick her up to weigh her, which she doesn't really like anyway, but she acted like it...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    Gosh, this makes my heart just sink. I thought I was doing what was best for them, and ... it makes me so mad/scared. Mine won't get any more boosters, either. *Both* my cats? sheesh. I hate to hear that you had to go through all of that. I'm glad you got a better vet. The vet that gave...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    awwwwwww RIP Pawnee <3 I'm glad she made it through all of that. But sad that you lost her. I don't think we'll be getting any more boosters. I've had cats my whole life, all outdoors, and they've been fine without boosters. And with both cats having issues? None for me, thanks. And all...

    DELAYED, prolonged vaccine reaction

    My Dash and my Buddy are both having issues. They got boosters because the local shelter I foster for has recently started requiring this. They got the Felocell 4 + 2-velv + rabies on the 30th. Buddy has a lump near his spine that only showed up about 4 days ago, I guess. That's when I...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    I won't use it. It was a big support system for me, and I was in some groups I loved, but it's just too much...stuff for me to allow my name/face to be sold to ad buyers and such. Besides that, because of all the politics and stuff, I only had like 9 friends lol. It's one of my big pet...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    haha I hear that. I have a discord channel with just a few friends who I wanted to take with me when I left facebook and my bff also fosters and I think everyone has cats, and I rename the main channel all the time, and there have been several with "cat poop" in the name. My bff and I...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    We've only been to the drive-thru pharmacy for a couple meds that they won't deliver. It really freaks me out and I will stay back here by myself for a couple days. He got that bad flu a couple years ago and it damaged his lungs + he's 70. We get groceries about every 2-3 weeks, and that's a...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    Yeah. My husband is super high risk, so we are having almost 0 contact w/ people, so I just kept her through them. After the third, I made an appointment but the appointment was going to be on the day she was probably going to go back into heat, so it got postponed and here we are. Lucky for...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    Will do. She's still stoned and is being really sweet about staying in the bathroom. She did escape once last night and went to the basement, like, who knew a drunk kitty could be so slippery and fast lol. She had a good go at the bottom of the doors last night, though, but I had put...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    Maybe she will get on my lap in a little bit and I can see how her breath is. I think that if I don't see any change after she heals from spaying, I'll put my meanie butt kitty outside for a day and see if there's any more of this behavior if she isn't 'trapped' in one room. Assuming they...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    Yeah, the breath thing is what worries me. The smell of infection is pretty recognizable. I'm not sure if they x-rayed the tooth or not, Neely, but that's definitely going to be a question I have tomorrow. I brush my companion cat's teeth, but this one has had issues with hands/fingers near...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    I appreciate you brainstorming with me and helping me. I will def keep an eye (nose) on her breath and, you are right, I need to advocate harder. New at fostering, and I'm a worrier. I kinda wondered if she had pica for a lil bit, because she chews cardboard, too, and will eat parts of it...

    Kitty Eating/Pulling Up Carpet

    Yeah, I'm disappointed. Has to be their vet. This shelter really isn't big on support or even details. I know they're all overworked, but this isn't the first time I've had to deal with similar. The only way I could take her to another vet would be to take her to my vet and pay for it, which...
