    Outdoor cat with a lump/swollen spot on her face

    Did you notice any other signs or symptoms in the days or weeks prior to this lump? Did you see her sneeze more often. To me, it doesn't look like a good thing, but I would need more details.

    Outdoor cat is sleeping in the cold

    Yes, I know you're lucky in this matter. The coldest I have ever seen here was 0°F, but it was really exceptional, never happened before, never happened again, but we might have down to 14°F, though the average low temperature can be around 20°F - 24°F. Summer can be very hot, though, generally...

    Outdoor cat is sleeping in the cold

    Well, in summertime she would sleep along with his son on the roof, day and night, and she was very comfortable with it. On the past few mornings the low temperatures were between 25°F and 28°F, there was frost everywhere around. This morning it was 34°F. Our winter low temperatures can be as...

    Ringworm - encouragement needed please

    As I had told you, I had two different experiences with ringworm, and that med worked a treat. It's a bit long and expensive, but it works!

    Outdoor cat is sleeping in the cold

    Before doing such an elaborate thing, I would like to try with a simple cardboard box. A box is better than nothing, and if she likes the box, I could replace it with something more robust. My doubt is why is she refusing to stay in an confined space? Why isn't she thinking to find a shelter...

    Outdoor cat is sleeping in the cold

    Yes, I thought of this. I forgot to say that this cat comes from a neighbor's yard, where she lived for years and she had a small cat house with just one entrance. And she used it regularly. Then, for some reason, she moved to my courtyard, about 30 meters/yards away, this last May or June. She...

    Post Dental Surgery

    My experience with brupenorphine is terrible. My cat was kind of stoned for nearly two days after just one injection of it, so the vet said no to repeat it the next two days. She was in pain due to a pancreatitis. Other users in this forum had similar experiences with the same drug. As for the...

    Outdoor cat is sleeping in the cold

    I have two outdoor cats, boy and girl, both fixed. They have their dishes and a cat house where they sleep in when the weather is bad. The whole setup is in a sheltered part of the yard, it's exposed to southeast, it doesn't rain on it. The cat house is a two-storey wooden structure. The...

    Swollen kitten belly

    I agree that Fortiflora isn't among the best probiotics out there. I tried the human grade probiotics in the past, with little results too, but I had a much better outcome with the S. Boulardii. Both my cats had their belly fixed in a few days with that yeast. Both my cats had diarrhea as well...

    Swollen kitten belly

    Actually, it would make more sense if one is able to take different samples, daily. Storing the samples for a few days is not easy, they should be kept refrigerated, and I would advise against storing them in your fridge!!! 😲 I also know that taking a sample daily to the vet/lab might be not...

    Swollen kitten belly

    Not necessarily a more specific test, but more than one test. Some fecal samples might simply not have the parasite in them.

    Swollen kitten belly

    Wheezing and sneezing might be due to a chronic rhinitis. I have an outdoor cat in my yard who has this strange sound when she breathes, and she has always had it, since she first appeared. It doesn't bother her too much. The bloated belly and hunger might be some parasite that the fecal test...

    How can I get help for a severely injured stray cat?

    I'm so far away from you, on the other side of the world, I feel so sorry for your situation. My fingers are crossed that someone will call you back 🤞

    How can I get help for a severely injured stray cat?

    Is there anyone, a friend, a relative, a neighbor of yours, just anyone, who can give you a hand with some money, provided that you will return it as soon as you can? And also take you to the vet/rescue?
