    Pancreatic and insulin resistant diabetic

    Very dusty. My grand baby spends a lot of time here and I’m afraid the dust will bother her even more than the rest of us. (She’s lower to the ground 😊)

    Hmm, that’s a thought. Wouldn’t that also stick?

    Pancreatic and insulin resistant diabetic

    I thought of the shredded paper, but it is very difficult to find. I used to be able to get it at Petco, but they no longer carry it in any store within a 30 mile radius of me - believe me I looked and made the phone calls. what brand do you use? Maybe I can try another search. Yes on all of...

    Pancreatic and insulin resistant diabetic

    Since I have several cats, I have several boxes. She just uses this one the most as it is on the main floor and doesn’t do stairs much anymore. I only have one on the main floor because we also have a dog that likes litter a bit too much. She has used the other boxes, same issue, that litter...

    When The Moment Has Passed. Why We Grieve So Intensely.

    Thank you Gareth. In 2013, I found your original post which helped me through my grief of losing my 18th month old Gordon. I have said goodbye to 4 other cats since then, but last night was for Brady, my 18 1/2 year old diabetic with IBD. It was a rough weekend starting with Saturday morning...

    Please Help Identify Lesion!

    Please, please take her to the vet right away if you have not already. I just lost my 16 year old cat last week and I wont go into details as this could be something completely different, but don't take any chances. Hanna also started with a lesion, but as I said, could be different - there are...

    First time poster - possible FIP?

    Has your vet looked into the possibility of IBD? I have a 16 year old cat that has had this for years. While it never goes away, he is on a small dose of prednisone every other day, and when his diarrhea is very bad, centrine helps. Over the years, we tried everything, diet (including raw)...

    Virus concern from cat who had fip?

    6 years ago today, we said goodbye to Gordon - 18 months old with FIP. We had our other two cats tested right after (we also got all new litter boxes, cat trees, etc. ) Both cats tested positive for the corona virus and both are still alive today - one is 8 and one is 16. Neither ever...

    When the moment comes...

    I first read this six years ago this week when I lost my 18 month old kitten Gordon to FIP. Yesterday, I put my 15-year-old girl Hanna to sleep and I’ve been crying ever sense. I remembered this post this morning and came back for some more solace. While I love all my cats, and have cried over...

    Surgery Or Not For A 13 Year-old Who Has Fibrosarcoma (a Malignant Lump)

    Thank you. After reading it, I think I might have been better off not asking, but I guess it was what I expected to hear, not what I wanted to hear.

    FIP? Help :( I would also refer you to the above post on this site - written by a member in 2011, has had many views, and it helped me when I lost Gordon. Noting takes away the immense pain when you lose a cat, but listening to the rationale of...

    FIP? Help :(

    Its been 6 years this month since I lost my 18 month old Gordon to FIP. Very difficult to diagnose, and unfortunately no cure. My vet tried everything but he not only lost a lot of weight quickly, he went from being a very playful kitten to barely moving in a short time. I probably waited too...

    Advice needed regarding fibrosarcoma

    I have been reading older posts and would like to hear from anyone who has had a cat diagnosed with this in the past and how that cat is doing now, or if passed, how it progressed (not looking to open up old hurts as I have lost enough of my babies to know that the pain never goes away)...

    Surgery Or Not For A 13 Year-old Who Has Fibrosarcoma (a Malignant Lump)

    I know its almost a year later, but can you update me on your cat's progress? My 15 year old just had this surgery yesterday and I am so worried - the incision is huge. Just waiting for pathology reports to see if he got it all. I know about the possibility of it coming back - he said lets...

    Need Wet Food Suggestion Consistency Of Baby Food

    Thank you, yes. Tried both. I suppose I could put it in the blender and see how that goes, otherwise he laps up the most liquid part and leaves the rest.

    Need Wet Food Suggestion Consistency Of Baby Food

    16 year old cat had gotten more finicky. He now will only eat baby food. He also tried and ate Hills A/D that I had for another senior cat that was recently sick, however medically he does not need it and I have no more anyway. I need suggestions for wet food but the consistency of baby food or...
