    Fur loss

    My 7 yo cat has been losing hair for 9 months. I posted on this site a few weeks ago about him, he is currently recovering from Horner's syndrome (cause unknown).

    Canned food-- besides Wellness-- to eliminate stinky poop

    Our new shelter kitty (8months) has the stinkiest poop.  He clears the house when he uses the litter box.  I have considered parasites and will get him re-checked, but for now am trying different foods.  Wellness chicken made a huge difference in the smell (but not the consistency, still runny)...

    Best oral meds for ringworm

    We have one cat with ringworm (4 cats total).  Our vet prescribed Griseofulvin, but I quit after one dose as she was foaming at the mouth with it.  Any suggestions on an oral medication I can ask my vet to give us?

    Keeping outdoor kitty in at night-- she's tearing down the house

    REMOVED VIDEO I've written about my kitten woes in a previous thread about aspiration, but I wanted to start a new thread and see if I can get some help.  My smallest, sick kitten is totally refusing to eat.  I can get about 1 cc down him drop by drop, but after that he refused to even...

    Aspiration pneumonia in bottle baby-- lost cause?

    I have two approx. 8 day old kittens. The mama cat left them in a chicken coop where they were in danger of getting pecked severely.  She did not come back for them after they were moved near the coop, but no longer in the nest.   I've been bottle feeding them for 2 days.  The smallest has not...
