    Pumpkin's vet visit

    Some of you may have seen a thread where I was concerned about making arrangements for the care of my cat should something happen to me. I'm not in the best of health and was worried sick about this issue after my brother went back on our agreement re. Pumpkin because I'm vaccinated. I was...

    I need advice on making emergency arrangements for my cat's care should something happen to me

    I wasn't sure where else to put this message, so here I am. It's been awhile since I last posted here. Not only has my cat been coping with chronic tummy issues, I have been going through some very serious issues myself. I adopted Pumpkin just over 8 years ago after he was abandoned in...

    Pumpkin Had Dental Cleaning/extraction Today

    I posted a thread a few weeks ago about poop issues that Pumpkin's been having. He's doing better in that department but there is something else I am concerned about. In that thread I mentioned he needed to have a dental cleaning, which he had today. They also had to pull one tooth. Pumpkin...

    Am I Doing Enough To Keep My Kitty Healthy?

    Not long ago I posted a thread on a different part of this site regarding a change of the type of litter my Pumpkin kitty uses. Now I'm concerned about something else. He had his annual checkup today and the vet & I discussed his diet. Pumpkin has had constipation off and on since I adopted...

    Needs Advice On Changing Type Of Litter

    My Pumpkin is a male, probably about 9-10 years old. I don't know his exact age because he's a rescue kitty. This is the vet's estimate. I've had Pumpkin for over 6 years and we always used Tidy Cat non-clumping litter. He never seemed to have a problem with it except sometimes he will...

    Needs Advice About Misc. Issues Inc. Litter, Meds, Etc

    My rescue kitty, who I posted about a long time ago, is doing much better bowel-wise. He's started to eat canned food, which I knew all along would help with his constipation issues. Pumpkin takes laxatone for hairballs, lactulose for constipation and Pepcid for acid issues. Pumpkin hates his...

    Kitty Has Soft Bump On Back On/next To Spine....help

    I posted in the past about Pumpkin's tummy issues. He's doing much better in that regard and when he goes to the vet next week for his checkup, I will ask if I can cut back or even stop the Lactulose. I'm concerned about a bump on his back. Not sure how long it's been there, but it's a few...

    My Cat Is Acting Funny....help!

    A couple of days ago, before I got up, I heard Pumpkin meowing like crazy and scratching at our front door, wanting to be let out. He's been doing this since before I adopted him. I've been trying to change him into an indoor kitty for nearly five years now. He has chronic tummy issues, for...

    Help - my cat has fleas again!

    Pumpkin has been my kitty for about two and a half years.  I adopted him not long before moving to the place we live in now.  He had tapeworms at the time....and his vet gave him a topical medicine that wiped those things out.  It worked like a charm but I noticed that while he doesn't have...

    My kitty needs a playmate

    I've had Pumpkin for just over two years.  I adopted him a few months before we moved to this apartment.  I have an order for a therapy pet from my doctor, which was great because before we moved here, I lived in an apartment that didn't allow pets.  They couldn't force me to give him up!  :)...

    Can a cat use a regular wearable baby carrier???

    My kitty was a runner before I got him about a year and a half ago.  I've been trying to train him ever since to stay indoors but it's been a struggle. Several months ago I got a mobility scooter and he's been on it with me (indoors only).  I've been thinking that if I get a regular baby...

    Cat tummy questions

    I have a couple of tummy questions.  The first one is about how my kitty uses his litter box.  Oftentimes he meows before going potty (not during, which I know isn't a good sign).  He peed ok and then he started to paw around as if he was getting ready to poop.  He abruptly stopped and walked...

    Cat's reaction to Advantage II - Please help

    I suppose I'm in panic mode but I want to make sure that my Pumpkin will be ok.  He's not having a severe reaction as far as I can tell, but he's been scratching at the application site and I can't get him to stop. I checked the application site this afternoon and it felt dry but I got a slight...

    Cat has fleas???

    My kitty Pumpkin and I were having a snuggle when I found what looked like a small flea on his nose.  I tried to remove it but the thing disappeared. Every time my kitty goes to the vet they check him for fleas and they never find any.  It's been awhile since I posted here, but some of you may...

    Intermittent throwing up

    My cat has had tummy issues since I adopted him over a year ago.   He's on Laxatone three times a day and Lactulose twice a day.  Pumpkin had a checkup in early February which he passed with flying colors. Since then he's been throwing up off and on.  The last time was a couple of weeks ago...

    Yellow cat poop?

    Being an IBS sufferer for years, I understand that yellow poop usually means that it went through the digestive system too fast.  I don't know if that can happen to cats or not. Pumpkin has had poop issues since I got him last year but overall he's getting better.  He's on lactulose and...

    How to protect dry cat food from ants??????

    I didn't know where else in this forum to post this....hopefully this is the right place! My kitty uses a blend of three special dry foods (in addition to wet), two of which are for urinary tract health and digestive health.  I like to stock up on several bags at a time, in addition to the...

    Pumpkin's ongoing tummy issues and how to help him cope with the heat

    It's been awhile since my last post.  I've had alot going on, inc. getting help with a "reasonable accomodation" at my apartment, etc, etc.  So if anyone messaged me in response to one of my threads and I didn't get back to you, that's why, and I'm very sorry about that. I posted in the past...

    Colace for a constipated cat?

    I posted about Pumpkin's tummy problems before, but the last thread was awhile back, so I thought I'd start this one. Pumpkin had two decent bowel movements in one day (the day before yesterday), so I was thrilled.  Yesterday he cranked out one little piece.  I didn't see if he strained...
