    cat is licking off all of her fur! Help!

    My cat Bellabear was doing this not too long ago, and the vet gave her a steroid shot and it went away. Also we switched her to grain free food. She said it was because of allergies. And it can be allergy to anything like fleas, food, etc.

    Manx male cat straining to poop?

    So, I get home. I had stopped by the store to get new litter, pure pumpkin baby food, and wilderness wet food. He is right there at the door looking normal as can be. I changed the litter out (grass seed kind), fed him some pumpkin and wet food mixed, he jumped in the litter box and went. 😜 I...

    Manx male cat straining to poop?

    Yes, I will be bringing him to the vet when I get home if he doesn't seem better. He was completely normal yesterday. I know blockages can be a problem in male cats, that is why I am paranoid. Better safe, than sorry. Thanks for replying!

    Manx male cat straining to poop?

    After he ate this morning, my male manx used the litter box and then he got out and seemed to be straining to poop on the floor. He wasn't crying out or anything, he just looked like he was trying to poop. The other day we found a poop nug in the hallway that also may have been from him (we have...

    Droncit and Advantage Multi

    I want to use Advantage Multi and Droncit to cover all the bases when it comes to worms and fleas. Since Advantage Multi doesn't work on tapeworms. Does anyone else use this combination?

    Taking off work to care for a cat...

    It ended up ok. I let him know Atticus was doing better last night and apologized for not being able to come back in. He said, “Glad to hear. It was a rough morning.” So they got through it without me and Atticus is doing better. It helps that I never take take off work unless I’m dying. Thanks...

    Taking off work to care for a cat...

    I am so irritated at the moment. I went home early to care for my cat. My husband called me on his way out the door to tell me our cat Atticus was ill and throwing up clear liquid all over the place. (He was on the way to give an important presentation at work so he couldn’t stay) I only work a...

    Allergies and fatty acid supplements

    Are fatty acid supplements really helpful in allergies? My cat has seasonal allergies (confirmed when a steroid injection given for something else revealed her overgroomed fur grew back). Has anyone tried fatty acid supplements alone or in combination with steroid injections for seasonal...

    Bellabear’s Eye is watering

    Well, 350 dollars later we found out she has a scratch on her eye. So we got some antibiotic ointment to put on it twice a day. And she got a steroid shot and a pain shot. Bonus on the steroid shot, it lasts for 4-6 weeks and may help her over grooming, provided its allergies and not behavioral...

    Bellabear’s Eye is watering

    Bellabear has been resting all day. I’ve seen her eat. But she hasn’t used the cat box yet. I feel so bad that I can’t get her in until 5pm tomorrow. Also I found out that since there are procedures for Covid-19, I just have to drop her off to someone at the curb and then they bring her in...

    Bellabear’s Eye is watering

    Yeah, I would wait. But it seems to be really bothering her and is watering a lot now. Still just tears, no gunk or anything. But she is clearly uncomfortable. Soonest appointment I could get was 5pm tomorrow. She’s in the bathroom, on her favorite blanket, loafing. She’s been eating and...

    Bellabear’s Eye is watering

    We flushed it with plain saline solution...she did not like that. We will see if it helped in the morning. She is currently curled up under the bed covers next to me, sleeping.

    Bellabear’s Eye is watering

    Bellabear has been rubbing her right eye and squinting. Her eye is watering a little, nothing severe. It happened suddenly last night. One moment she was fine, the next she was hiding behind the entertainment center and when she came out, she was squinting her eye. She does open it occasionally...

    Molly Joan’s nose

    I can’t get into the vet because they’re only seeing emergency cases right now. I think Molly’s nose got scratched by her brother and it looks pretty bad. I’ve put ointment on it that Inhad leftover from when she scratched her brother’s nose (I guess he got her back). Does it look like it’s...

    Advantage Ii For Cats/dogs -- Difference?

    They just put the “do not use on cats” on the label recently. Probably because they knew people were buying the large dog and splitting into doses for their cats. That is what I do for my three kitties. It works great. My vet is actually the one who told me I could do this, because I expressed a...

    Tapeworm medicine that isn’t a pill

    Molly Joan LeMeowski gets tapeworms more often than my other babies. I use Advantage 2 and also Bayer brand tapeworm pills. She is especially hard to pill. It is always a fight to pry her mouth open and then keep it closed until she swallows and doesn’t spit it out. Is there a gel of some sort...

    Cat suddenly drooling...

    She seems to be normal this morning. No drooling at all...eating fine. I will take her in just to be sure and get a check up. 😀

    Litter recommendations?

    I like Okocat wood litter...it works really well and keeps the odor down. I have three cats and it lasts longer than regular clumping litter. The only issue I have with it is that it tracks easily.
