    former feral help

    Fudge was a feral kitten around 3 months old when he was trapped. He looks like a seal point siamese. I fostered he and his sister, and they were in a crate until they became used to me, and my other cats. Sister got adopted and was more sociable than Fudge from the beginning. It has been 4...

    I have to take my sweet boy today

    Thank you for your support. we took a nap after he had his sedative. I realized then, the way he was so relaxed laying there, that he must have been in pain the past week or so. He had a lymphoma growth in his belly. The vet was kind, it was a shot pf anesthesia, and then a shot in his vein. It...

    Violet weighs 13 pounds and should weigh 8, she eats everything

    My Violet is so fat, and she is a small framed girl. Recently, we had to go to the ER and I spent 1600 dollars because she was so constipated she needed numerous overnight enemas to get her unblocked. She is constantly crying for food, and I feed her separate from the other cats so she stays...

I cant do this. I love him...

    Ant Problem In Studio Apartment

    My ants come in through the back door, where there are two litter boxes. They were terrible last year, and the terro, which works great usually, did not help but continued to bring in more. It is the back door, so baiting them doesn't work, I can't kill every ant that lives in the yard. I want...

    Kidney Disesase, Euthanasia

    That picture is a few years old. His coat is not as nice now, and he is skinny. He still has that beautiful face. I read the link someone put above and he is often in the "meatloaf" position. I seldom see him sleeping comfortably. I don't want to prolong discomfort but the alternative is not...

    Dental And Forl

    I have not had him back to the vet, but 1400 dollars is what it costs to xray around here and that does not include whatever else needs to be done.
