    Health testing

    What health, virus/ parasite ect testing should be done before a new cat is allowed to be removed from quarantine? We had issues in 2019 with a new boy bringing mycoplasma with him (which turned into an absolute nightmare). We will be welcoming a new girl in the near future and I would like to...

    pyometra in breeding cats

    She was spayed 6 pm Saturday evening and we were able to pick her up yesterday afternoon. I am so so happy that she is home and is doing well. (Although she's not super happy about being a cone head lol) Thank you so much @lutece for all your help, I was still a complete wreck until we picked...

    pyometra in breeding cats

    That's true too, just because my vet will be open doesn't necessarily mean they will be able to help her/get her in. And then she might be in an even worse situation because we waited. Definitely made me feel a lot better thank you.

    pyometra in breeding cats

    I was absolutely sure I was doing the right thing bringing her to the emergency vet, but when the surgery wasn't done when it was initially said it would be and still hasn't been; my partner started questioning whether it could wait until Monday for the fraction of the price. I personally don't...

    pyometra in breeding cats

    How long from the time you saw symptoms to when they were spayed roughly? She started having discharge on the 6th, i brought her into my vet they ran some tests and determined that she had an infection but that it wasn't pyo. They sent her home with antibiotics for 10 days. The discharge...

    pyometra in breeding cats

    Have any breeders had this happen to one of your girls? If you have, how did your she recover? Were there any additional complications? Was it opened or closed pyometra? One of my girls is currently at the emergency vet awaiting surgery for open pyometra. The surgery was supposed to be done...

    Cryptorchidism: An uncommon disorder

    From what I have been reading (not an expert, but figured I would share what I have found), cryptorchidism is an autosomal recessive condition. So in order for a male cat to have cryptorchidism, they would need to receive two copies of the defective gene (one from each parent). Because of lack...

    Club foot in kitten

    @lutece she is doing so much better, thank for asking :) I was actually coming on to thank @Sarthur2 again for the information and give an update. Her foot is flat now and no longer curls in constantly, and she is able to bend her legs herself now. I did bring her to the vet, they told me to...

    Club foot in kitten

    Thank you so much @Sarthur2 for the links, I will start warming the affected leg before continuing to do the stretching. Thankfully the foot seemed better this evening with less of a curl to it then when she was first born, so hopefully with doing the physio multiple times a day the foot will...

    Club foot in kitten

    My cat gave birth to 7 kittens early this morning. I noticed immediately that kitten number 3's left hind paw was curled in awkwardly and leg looked off. Paw is difficult to straighten, leg is difficult to bend. I was able to get a vet appointment for monday afternoon, but I am wondering if...

    Newly agressive stud boy

    @posiepurrs I couldn't believe how much damage happened so quickly. I felt like the worst cat mom ever, so I am glad that it's not just my cats!

    Newly agressive stud boy

    I have probiotics on hand, so I will start adding it to their wet food just to be on the safe side. Thanks for your replies :)

    Newly agressive stud boy

    I will definitely wait and do a slow supervised reintroduction later once he is neutered. I put a feliway plug in his pen once he had started fighting with my new stud. I will order another one for the main floor of my house though, I also have the spray on the way from Amazon. The boy he...

    Newly agressive stud boy

    Thanks for your reply, I will call on Monday to see if they can do a full work up on him just to make sure. I am hoping it's hormonal that will be fixed once he is neutered. I feel so bad.

    Newly agressive stud boy

    I am current on my way to the emergency vet. My normally docile and friendly stud boy, whom normally gets along with everyone, snapped and attacked not one but two of the other cats. I don't know what the hell is going on. I made an appointment last week to have him neutered on the 28th. A few...

    Colorpoint genetics

    what would happen if: Mom is chocolate, therefore can only pass on chocolate to kittens. Dad is red, but both genes on the B locus are cinnamon. Would male kittens still be chocolate than? Because cinnamon is recessive to chocolate? I am sorry to keep bugging you. I find this all very...

    Colorpoint genetics

    So the only way a male cat can be red is if mom is red or passes the gene on correct? What would happen if mom was chocolate, and dad was red but doesn't carry chocolate? What color would male kittens be?
