    Unnamed tortoiseshell treasure... my preciousss!

    Ksu doesn't look like herself in the pictures, so I decided that a video is worth a thousand pictures! :) She's in a calm state, preparing to sleep, and I am distracting her with noises, poking her and otherwise being cruel and annoying, in order to record her: It's amusing how she tried to...

    Unnamed tortoiseshell treasure... my preciousss!

    Here are more pictures! Ksu has grown since I first posted, she is now almost 5 months old (in a week). Different lighting, I know, my phone is like that... But those huge eyes? That's how she looks most of the time, awake. I usually can't take a picture when she's fully awake, as she can't...

    Unnamed tortoiseshell treasure... my preciousss!

    Our cats are like cousins! :) Out of curiosity, are your cat's gums black anywhere rather than pink? For example, on the lower left side of her mouth? Mine has black fur on that side of her mouth, just like yours, and her lower gum is black. I was so surprised to discover it. And on her upper...

    Unnamed tortoiseshell treasure... my preciousss!

    Aww your kitten is so small and cute! :) I named her Ksyusha, it sounds really nice in my language and has all the cat sounds. She already understands her name and comes when called. Or maybe she just reacts to the intonation of my voice, haha. We've been to a vet recently, and the vet thinks...

    Avoiding worm re-infection, how to?

    I've got another question about this: should I be seeing anything in her poo if the pill is working? Sorry if it's a stupid question, but I really don't know and I'm worried. She threw up the day I gave her the pill, and I suspect that happened either right before or right after. I didn't find...

    Avoiding worm re-infection, how to?

    Unfortunately, I don't know if it kills the eggs and can't find any information about it online. The instructions online are a bit vague, they state that it stops a worm invasion 'caused by adult or egg worms', which should technically mean that it kills the eggs, I think?.. Strangely, she...

    Avoiding worm re-infection, how to?

    My kitten started throwing up recently, and a lot, and after taking her to the vet I was told she has worm eggs in her poo. However, the vet wasn't very helpful about my re-infection questions. Maybe I'm missing something... I gave an anti-worm pill to the kitten today, but as far as I...

    What to buy a kitten for safe chewing? (not food)

    The topicstarter here. The kitten stopped being such a rodent. She doesn't even play as much as she used to! I start to suspect that she was older when I adopted her than what I was officially told (maybe because people in general prefer as young kittens as possible). She's 4 months old now, or...

    Can I allow my cat to lick my hair?

    My kitten\cat (she is more like a teen right now) really likes to lick my hair whenever she feels like being carressed and gets in the mood. I understand that it's an instinct, cats lick each other, and I sort of 'lick' her by carressing her, too, but I'm worried that she'll eat my hair and have...

    What to buy a kitten for safe chewing? (not food)

    Thanks everyone. I've been busy helping mom to prep for surgery, but I'm positive I won't find silicon fish toys locally, and with the warning above, I guess I'm not upset about it :) I wonder about braided ropes. I think I can find those, although I'm unsure if my cat manages to bite through...

    What to buy a kitten for safe chewing? (not food)

    As for cardboxes, I don't think they're safe for my kitten who was silly enough to eat a button recently. Ditto for washclothes. But other suggestions are interesting.

    What to buy a kitten for safe chewing? (not food)

    Do you have a picture, please? I need to know what to look for, I don't think I've seen such dogs toys in shops. Any pictures? :) I'm not sure how to make one without having her bite through. And... I have to ask for a picture again :) I'm positive I haven't seen silicon fishes, but maybe I...

    What to buy a kitten for safe chewing? (not food)

    @Willow's Mom, do those take a long time to eat? (I don't have dogs) Going to try a plastic bone, I guess. If I tie it up to something and let it dangle, that's going to catch her attention. As for chicken necks, I don't want to take risks, she might choke on them.

    What to buy a kitten for safe chewing? (not food)

    My kitten really likes dangling ropes and such. I don't want to deprive her of favorite toys, but they really aren't safe. Today she managed to bite off a huge piece of rope somehow, the one that I considered safe. She didn't eat it, but I'm horrified just to imagine that she would... Any...

    Kitten ate a 1cm button

    Good news! I just went to a clinic, their surgeon looked at the button and said that such a button can't get stuck and cause an obstraction. Too round, too small. He said it isn't worth doing anything about it. I still said that maybe the kitten should have an X-ray for my own peace of mind, and...

    Kitten ate a 1cm button

    That's a great idea. I definitely want to try it out, the button is old. How much vinegar should I add? And should I do it just once or bit by bit? (you can tell I'm bad at chemistry!) OMG that sounds awful. He's lucky he had enough fortune to poop it out every time! Strings are really dangerous.

    Kitten ate a 1cm button

    Where was it stuck? Do I understand correctly that even ultrasound didn't locate a piece of plastic and only X-ray with contrast gave some vague clues?

    Kitten ate a 1cm button

    Yes, it was a plastic button, and with rather sizable slits. Technically she could vomit it out and I wouldn't know. If there's only a little vomit and she found a spot normally inaccessible for me, or played with it a bit and moved it somewhere inaccessible for both of us, l could miss it...

    Kitten ate a 1cm button

    I'm positive she ate it. Everything started with her attacking the button, and I honestly didn't think she could tear it away, let alone eat it. I looked away for a second or two and then I saw the button being nowhere to be found and my kitten gulping something down. It was too late to make her...

    Kitten ate a 1cm button

    Ah, I see... I phoned my vet the very first day and she didn't tell me to bring the kitten in. She inquired about her state (playful, no constipation, no vomiting) and told me that if she feels well I should wait for at least four days and then maybe bring her for an X-ray, to a different...
