    Where can I buy Strongid..not online

    Hi...I took in my daughters outside kitty, Frank.  Well this am, he vomited up round worms and the vet confirmed it when I took them in for them to look at. He is a new boy here.  Had him neutered through a low cost spay neuter.  Well, vet won't give meds unless I bring him in.  But she...

    Deadly Easter Lillys

    I know there is a thread under the Cat Lounge, but this is so important thought I would post here too. So many new people on the Cat Site, some might not be aware of the dangers of Easter Lillies and other lillies to their cats.  If you have one and you have a cat, IMO, get rid of the plant. ...

    My Chance

    I first saw Chance out near the road jumping straight up trying to catch a chipmunk.  He was so beautiful and looked so out of place.  He looked like he should be laying on a thick kitty bed eating from a crystal bowl!  lol  He was a long haired brown tabby with beautiful feet tufts and ear...

    Chance has a bone tumor

    in his jaw.  His prognosis is poor and I will be sending him on to the Bridge tomorrow.  I have had him for about 10 years, he appeared as a feral/stray. He has always been a scardy cat, but will allow petting when he is tucked among his buds sleeping. A week ago, his face was swollen on the...

    Snowy pics of our horses

    A gal at our barn takes great pics.  That is Big Al on the left, my horse.  And Cowboy, my husbands quarter horse on the right. Although Al is very big, I think Cowboy was standing in a hole.  He really isn't that short!  It was a gorgeous Sunday morning and we threw hay out for them to have a...

    Cat chases tail at sound of shower

    My daughters cat, Charlie, has a very strange reaction to the shower running....he goes into a frenzy chasing his tail. I was wondering if this could be behavorial, or maybe the sound sends him into a kind of "fit". You can see Charlie on YouTube at Charlie The Cat Goes Insane Chasing His...

    Forgot to give insulin

    I think I forgot to give Goofy his 2 units of insulin this am....ugh.  Now we have to be gone all afternoon.  He gets 1 unit in the evening. Has anyone else forgotten this?  I have one other time, and it seems to me when I called the vet, it wasn't a big deal.  Goofy has been controlled for...

    Dry food with egg protein

    Arthur was drinking more than he should and I thought it was probably diabetes.  Turns out his kidney numbers were elevated....not a lot, but enough.  I will post the numbrs when I pick him up later. So I am looking for a dry food with egg protein and not meat protein as that is harder for...

    Reminder......Tinsel on Christmas trees

    There are so many new members on TCS, now is a good time to remind everyone.....If you have a cat in the house, please do not put tinsel on your trees! It is very dangerous for your kitty to eat this and they will.  It looks like such fun to them! And while I am at Easter, No Easter...

    Is there a dry catfood for diabetic cats?

    My cat, Goofy, has diabetes.  It is controlled with insulin and Friskies wet food...only certain varieties. I seperate him out at meal time to feed the others Royal Canin Mature, dry.  Not the biggest fan of dry, but I simply cannot keep feeding 10 cats wet food.  It is eating my bank account...

    How long is dry good for

    A friend gave me a great deal of dry Purina One.  I plan to use it for the barn kitties.  It wasn't in a bag but in a plastic tote.  She lost her cat last August, so it is at least that old.  Any ideas whether I should use it or not?  It is dry and smells fine, and looks good. Thanks.

    Nylon stockings

    Had a discussion this weekend about panty hose or regular nylons.  My opinion is they are becoming obsolete.  With the trend to more casual workplace dress, they seem to be an idea that has run its course.  There are never advertisements for them. I was just wondering if anyone still has them...
