    Radar was in hospital

    He got a Feline Herpesvirus flareup and stopped eating, he was in a sorry state so we took him to the vet hospital and they kept him in a couple of days to give IV fluids and supportive care. He is back home now and eating well, we are doing steam treatments in the bathroom and warming his food...

    Sonic Has A Uri (sinus Infection)

    Not so much asking for advice as we have been to the vet and have treatment, just more for sympathy really. Vet thinks it started out as a mild viral thing but he now has a secondary bacterial sinus infection and has a lot of thick nasal discharge. In other regards he is fine - he's eating and...

    Flutd Support Groups And Dietary Advice

    Hi, this is not for me, am asking on behalf of a friend. His cat often has sediment and bloody wee, it's been treated by the vet a few times and there's no sign of infection (tests have been performed), but I suspect some dietary and long-term support advice may help to maintain better urinary...

    Recovering After Anorexia And Weight Loss - Is It Dangerous To Gain Weight *too* Quickly?

    Some background, for those who didn't see my other recent threads. My Radar had middle ear surgery, must be nearly 8 weeks ago now - he stopped eating afterwards and was on a feeding tube (e-tube in the US, or o-tube in the UK) for a few weeks. During the initial ill health surrounding...

    Tube Feeding - Potential Problem, Urgent, Please Help

    Radar currently has an e-tube because he has not been eating after surgery. So because of the bad weather, NONE of the vets locally, including our central vet hospital, received deliveries. Radar is being fed Royal Canin Convalescence Support 50g pouches (the powder that is mixed with water)...

    Is There Any Way To Change A Thread Title?

    I can't see any way to do this myself, so figured it wouldn't hurt to ask: I started this thread about a particular surgery my cat had over a week ago, but since then has turned more to be about tube feeding since my cat stopped eating (he is ok, he has a feeding tube now) - but it would be...

    Middle Ear Surgery - Recovery And Tube Feeding?

    Hi, I used to post here years ago, but haven't been around for a while. My lovely boy Radar had a massive problem with polyps in his ears and throat, so had the above procedure yesterday on both sides, it's more complicated surgery than straightforward removal, but should prevent them...

    How to deal with a cat that fears being in a pet carrier?

    Hi all, long time no see! One of my cats is terrified of being in a pet carrier (for transport to and from the vet and so on), in the time I've had him I've been able to get him used to being in a large dog crate by putting his food in there and giving him treats - this serves a practical...

    Radar went to the vet

    He had an allergic reaction (not a serious life-threatening reaction, just an itchy annoying type reaction!) to an insect bite of some kind on his leg, he managed to make his thigh almost completely bald in the space of 24 hours and was worrying the affected area so it looked a bit gory. We...

    Jealous posessive cat!

    I have 3 cats, all neutered males between the ages of 18 months and 2 1/2 years old. The youngest 2 are Oriental Shorthairs, and in common with their breed are very affectionate towards my husband and I and want to spend as much time as possible on us or next to us. One of the Orientals...

    Radar, Sonic, and Jacob - Cuddling Orientals and a fluffy white tummy (loads of pics)

    I take too many photos! Here are a selection of highlights.... Sonic and Jacob, Sonic looks none too pleased about having the camera pointed at him yet again... Sonic says that sleeping is good, but is best on a pile of coats, it's good to make the humans feel jealous that they can't obtain...

    Radar's a wimp

    Let me start by saying that there's been no fighting between the boys, just the usual dominance posturing and slapping, nothing more serious than that. But Radar has decided that he is bottom of the pecking order, and has taken up residence on the bookcases. He made early advances of...

    Radar, Sonic, and Jacob.... (dial up warning, lots of photos)

    As the sun is shining today and being the weekend I am here while it is doing its thing, I took the opportunity to get some photos of the boys and thought you would enjoy them! Usual apologies about untidiness etc... It does look as though Radar has Sonic by the throat, but they are actually...

    My new boy....

    I thought you might like to see my new boy, Jacob. He's settling in extremely quickly, and is a huge lovebug, he just loves his cuddles. He's an Oriental Shorthair - those of you, especially in the US, used to seeing the ultra-modern Oris with their enormous ears will notice that he is a very...

    OW OW OW OW OW.... and some more OW!

    Anyone ever had this happen? I haven't been long out of bed this morning, and was sat at the computer with my legs bare. Sonic hopped up onto my lap for a cuddle which was all going fine, but all of a sudden his backside slipped off my lap... He dug 8 back claws into my right calf, and 10...

    I have done a kitten introduction and come out the other side with everyone unscathed, is there anything different I need to keep in consideration for the introduction of a young adult? The residents are a 21 month old neutered male moggy x cornish rex cross and a 15 month old neutered male...

    Will it grow back OK? (Claw query)

    When I was giving Radar his regular claw clip yesterday, I noticed that he had somehow managed to break one of his front claws off (the silly sausage is always sticking his paws in places they don't belong such as the vents on the computer ). It didn't look as if it had gone into the quick and...
