    Diabetic Cat on Prednisolone

    Hi Dilly.  I'm sorry I didn't answer sooner.  I have not been on here much lately.    I am SO glad Barty is feeling a lot better!    I think you will be seeing him gradually putting back on weight / muscle mass ,  now that the insulin is helping his body again able to use more of his food. The...

    Diabetic Cat on Prednisolone

     Prozinc is a veterinary U-40 insulin specifically approved for cats, and it's one of the insulins that would usually be a good choice  --  better than some that are shorter acting and tend to work better for dogs.  Cats usually have faster metabolisms than dogs or people. I would not usually...

    Need to know breed and age if possible

    For color / pattern, I think she looks like a  Brown Torbie  ( tortie - tabby).     I also was reminded about the discussion of German Longhair.    but she wouldn't be that if she's from somewhere far from there.     As Stefan says,  most cats really aren't considered a specific breed. It is...

    So...what do YOU think my cat looks like?

      Oh ,  thank you so much, chiarabab.    My cats say you clearly have great perception!          I obviously love Thai cats.  And I love Thai food, too.    Unfortunately,  you are correct about my cats' lack of culinary skills.  Sammy likes shopping but he doesn't do cooking.  Anyway he thinks...

    What kind of tabby am I?

     I think the rescue was just describing the coloring of her pattern being both black and brown.     The person who commented on her lookalike was right .    The   official name most commonly used  would be Brown Mackerel Tabby.   It doesn't have to mean some very specific markings;   mackerel...

    Rescued a beautiful kitten but unsure of breed

     He sure is gorgeous!    I wouldn't rule out that he may have some recent breed ancestry.   In that first photo he sure does have an  Abyssinian look. ( actually the lighting / tone of the photo makes  the color look more like ruddy than blue.   but I'm talking about his face looks  a lot like...

    Diabetic Cat on Prednisolone

    Everyone is nervous at first!   but just about every person and cat can learn to do it.        I found giving the shot was easier than testing at the beginning.   I just gave the shot while he was eating and he was so focused on his food that it seemed like most of the time he hardly paid...

    Introduction of the German Longhair Cat

    I'm so glad you love the Thai too.   BTW my young queen who is in my little avatar photo ( shot when she was about 10 months old)  has a German grandmother.    We have been showing Thais in Championship classes in TICA since the 1st of May 2010. (Before that they spent 3 years being shown...

    Can you help me describe my cat?

    If she is a blue tortie smoke,  she'd have a white undercoat and the other hairs would be white at the roots.  I actually wondered a bit about that   and your description sounds like she probably is. Not sure about having more of the brownish color as a kitten,  but smokes are notorious for...

    Introduction of the German Longhair Cat

    Thanks for posting the interesting history and photos of beautiful cats showing their distinctive type.    in some ways reminiscent of the old Persians from mid 20th century, but these Deutsche Langhaar cats definitely have a longer nose and less round head than those Persians did even before...

    Can anyone tell me which breed are my cats

    Anam Haleem,   looking at the short muzzles,  the coats  and the intense copper eyes,  I agree with Stefan;   I think your lovely cats are Persian &/or Persian mix.    The Blue Silver Tabby definitely has a look of the old Persians like I remember from when I was a child.

    So...what do YOU think my cat looks like?

     Spooks is SO handsome.   He's got a lovely head.   I like  this park picture.  Here are some pics of Sammy doing his Christmas shopping at Petco. I first got a cat to walk on leash back in 1999 when I adopted Louis,  who really wanted to go out to feel like had a bigger territory   When he...

    Cat Genetics - Red Ticked Tabby Girl

     you are right ,  red female cats are about 25% .    Not super rare, and neither are black female cats.  The same genetic issue applies to both,   but there are fewer red cats than black cats ,  so I guess it is more likely that someone may not have met red girls, and think they are rare. The...

    So...what do YOU think my cat looks like?

     Hey,  there's no "just" about  a "Domestic Longhair" like Spooks!  He is a beautiful cat.   & I do wonder if he might be DLH with a bit of something Southeast Asian  like Siamese or Burmese ....   At least it sounds like HE thinks he's one at heart.   He sounds like a GREAT cat ,  just my sort...

    Can you help me describe my cat?

    She is a gorgeous Blue Tortie!   ( or sometimes called a "Blue-Cream")  .  This is the dilute version of the black & orange torties.   Amazing eyes!  The color is not really associated with any specific breed;  it is seen in many breeds as well as the far more numerous random-bred cats of no...

    Diabetic Cat on Prednisolone

     I doubt you are going to be able to do this with diet alone since he is on the steroid and 342 mg/dL is not just borderline hyperglycemia A normal blood glucose level for a healthy non-diabetic cat ranges from about 50-100 in their home environment. (At the vet it is often a bit higher due to...
