    WHEN TO SAY GOODBYE

    I have a cat that is now 22 years old. In the past month she has lost a bit of weight and is now considered underweight as she was trim to begin with. She has some arthritis in her jaw so she has a little discomfort there. I was given a few days of pain killer for her but not much else. That is...

    Third Eyelid concern

    I have a 20 year old kitty that is allergic to everything according to her allergy test. Between Jan and May the allergy shots she’s on do not work well. I’m giving her nose drops per vet advice to help. This year is the first time her third eyelid refuses to retract in one eye. It’s kind of...

    Bump on Belly of Stray

    I have been feeding a stray and just recently I was able to pet him. He is probably about a year old. He does not look like he has fully developed testes and I was holding out hope that maybe he was/is someone’s cat and they neutered him. Today he actually showed his belly to me and I was able...

    Pulled Tail Syndrome

    I posted earlier about a stray I took in to get neutered returning with a limp tail. A member posted about some of his or her TRN cats returning from the vet injured from getting manhandled at the vet to restrain them. I’m thinking someone at the vets office grabbed my cats tail to restrain him...

    Cat tail limp after neuter

    I had a stray neutered last Monday. After the neuter his tail has gone limp. He’s not holding it down himself. The base of the tail by the spine looks like it has muscle movement but the last 3/4 of the tail just dangles. The vet told me it’s because he is in pain and it will return to...

    NEUTERED STRAY

    I neutered a stray on Monday and I’m keeping him on my patio for recovery. Of course he is going stir crazy. I can handle him and pacify him, but the constant meowing I thought would go away with neutering hasn’t. I already have a full house and can’t take him in full time. I’ve chipped him and...

    My heart is breaking. My Oscar was diagnosed with a fistula in the roof of his mouth that has turned out to be cancer. He has problems swallowing and eating it’s not easy for him to get anything down and has gotten bronchitis as a result. He essentially gags every-time he tries to eat. He is...

    Hot Spots on Cats

    I've got a friend that needs some advice. She has been battling hot spots in a family of 3 cats all related. There is no flea infestation and other cats from this same family are fed the same food with no skin reactions. So it doesn't seem to be caused by food or fleas. Anyone had any luck...

    MATS ON FERAL CAT

    I am hoping I am not revealing that I'm crazy here, but I've had a feral cat living with me inside my house for close to 12 years. She lived behind my office. I trapped her, spayed her and brought her home assuming she would acclimate to me. She was probably 5-6 years old when I got her. She...

    Micro-bacteria

    Does anyone have any experience with this problem. My cat was just diagnosed with this after I found a rash on her belly. A biopsy was done and it came back positive for this. More tests need to be done to figure out what kind it is. All I'm hearing are horror stories from the vet which can...

    My Cat died today

    I took my 8 year old cat in for a dental today and he died under anesthesia. All blood tests were normal before the surgery at a loss. I feel so guilty....he didn't want to go this morning and I had to drag him from under the bed. I wish I just let him be this morning then he'd be alive.

    Cat Peeing Issue

    My cat is a Siamese mix and a big sweetheart I found about a year ago. Ever since I have had her she will go to random places and squat like she is peeing and only pee one drop. Sometime she does this in the litter box sometimes as well but also pees normally in the litter box. No noise is made...

    I have a 2 year old tailless wonder. She is sweet when she wants to be and rather onery when she is not in the mood, vet visits = onery. This morning she comes up to me and I notice she has what looked like a piece of wood or grass stuck between the lip fold under the nose. After 10 or 12...

    Mega Colon

    I have a friend that is looking at this diagnosis for her kitty. Her baby is 15 years old and the vet is telling her with this diagnosis nothing can be done i.e. euthanasia. Her kitty is perky but because of the messiness has to be secluded from the rest of the family. She's been battling...

    Just found one of the strays I care for dead in the middle of the street

    I am so heartbroken. He was a big Tom and I went out to feed him and saw him laying in the middle of the road blood coming from his ear and nose. He was gone. I feel so guilty. We live in a gated community so I never thought he would be hit by a car. He didn't look like he was 100% the last...
