    You are very welcome. Keep in mind that it smells VERY strong, though! At least the first day, you can smell it from anywhere in your house. It's not an unpleasant smell -- just strong.

    Lizard Droppings

    Thank you for your reply! I had no idea about lizards/some lizards being dangerous to cats until I started googling today! I'm glad to hear that none of your cats ever showed any ill effects from eating lizards... and maybe lizard poop too. Ugh! :barfgreen::eek3::barfgreen: Never a dull moment...

    Lizard Droppings

    Lily got into mischief again. She is a 100% indoor cat, but I live in a condo that has a screened balcony. Off the balcony is a small storage room which unfortunately seems to be a refuge for common Florida lizards. Not sure where they come from -- there must be some sort of hole in the wall. I...

    My Lilly is a champ! :kneading: No more ribbon in her! I'm sure she must be feeling better, although she never gave any signs of feeling poorly. *I* am so very relieved! :bliss::poop::bliss:

    Nope. :( Lilly pooped again today but no signs of the rest of the ribbon, and believe me, I looked! Yuck. She continues to eat with excellent appetite and displays no unusual behavior or signs of distress. Nothing is hanging from her butt. Today is Day 3. @She's a witch said her kitty took 3...

    I had this problem recently and found a pet-and-kid-safe ant killer that is heavy in cinnamon and cloves. It worked like a charm! I didn't have a heavy ant problem, just a constant few that kept coming back to the dry food bowl. The name is "Ortho Home Defense Ant & Roach Killer With Essential...

    Today's Update: No ribbon in the poop, but at least she pooped, which would indicate her gut is moving normally. Ate all her breakfast too. I'm feeling positive!

    UPDATE: Partial success! Lilly pooped out part of the ribbon, I'd estimate about 5-6 inches of the 12. It looks like the ribbon may have broken in two or more pieces after she ate it? I just hope it's not stuck anywhere and that she'll keep pooping it all out. I just gave her a little more...

    Hello there! So happy to hear that your Ireland's coughing disappeared too with changes in diet and litter! I'm usually careful with what I leave around because Lilly loves to play, even when she's by herself, and will chew on or eat a lot of random items, particularly my hair ties! However, to...

    Thank you! I've been watching her carefully and she shows no ill effects, except for having hacked up some clear foamy stuff immediately after eating the ribbon. She was clearly hungry so I fed her breakfast as usual and she ate everything. I also gave her a little Laxatone and may do it daily...

    Food options for hacking/coughing caused by possible allergies?

    UPDATE: Hello everyone! It's been a year since my last post regarding my cat's hacking cough issues that after heavy experimentation on my part, turned out to be allergy to chicken and turkey. Lilly is still doing great -- no coughing at all except for when she had a cold last November! Took her...

    That's why my vet didn't think it was allergies, because my kitty didn't have stomach issues or itchy skin. Yet, it ended up being an allergy to chicken and turkey!

    Food options for hacking/coughing caused by possible allergies?

    So far so good! Everything has been perfect since I eliminated chicken and turkey from Lilly's diet, and switched her to grain-free salmon and whitefish. I also switched to one-ingredient treats, such as freeze-dried salmon bits. The litter is unscented and 100% dust-free, although not Dr...

    Food options for hacking/coughing caused by possible allergies?

    I can relate. Lilly had several x-rays taken at various times, and each time I had to pay not just for the x-ray, but for the consultation with a veterinary radiologist. When nothing seemed to work, the vet wanted to do a tracheal wash and an endoscopy, which I could not afford. That's when I...

    TThank you. That was one of the first things I tried. I switched to an unscented, dust-free litter but didn't notice much significant improvement since she was still on an all-chicken diet at the time. I've stayed with this litter, though. My house is so much cleaner as a result! :hyper:

    Thank you, but I'm the lucky one. She's my adorable furbaby!

    Food options for hacking/coughing caused by possible allergies?

    Well, I may have spoken too soon. Tried the grain-free turkey again yesterday, exactly one week after the last (second) time -- this was the third time in all. Unfortunately, today she coughed and hacked for about 90 seconds. No more turkey and back to whitefish and salmon for now. As always...
