    I am sorry this happened to you. Rescue or not I don't support the ear-tipping system; there has to be another way. I am glad your baby's all better and healed up now♡

    What breed (if any) is this cat?

    To me there's definitely some maine coon in her; might even be purebred! Her colour is Black Silver (mackerel? classic?) Tabby. In the pedigree world, a good example of a breed is representative of the standard set by a cat registry. Maine coons have a square muzzle, large ears set not too...

    A cream mackerel tabby domestic short-hair. Such a sweet bond you have going on🥰

    Orange or cream

    My my she is cute. So the term orange or ginger does not represent the gene. Technically she is a Red Mackeral Tabby. Cream would be a dilution of the red gene and cream cats are a lot lighter than this

    Can anyone help me Identify what mix my cat is?

    She's absolutely gorgeous but I am sure you already know that😆 Her colouration is a bit tricky; it always is with longhairs that have super long maines and undercoats but she appears to be a black solid- however, because of the tarnishing (the brownish ends of her fur) and the light silver-ish...

    I just want to express my thanks to everyone who contributed to this forum. I was sad, desperate, disturbed and full of guilt about what happened with my kittens but you didn't hesitate to be there in a moment of need and share your knowledge. To me, that moral support truly meant a lot. Thank...

    So we took her to the vet this afternoon and they gave her 2 antibiotic injections and put her on a course of antibiotics for a week. We expressed our concern on the matter as well and they said that they're doing the surgeries properly as best as they could. For now I am keeping her warm and...

    Yes sure I'll take a picture once I am back home. They're very healthy kittens. They are not the slightest bit underweight and I was also told that they had a lot of baby fat when we once asked why the surgical incision looked a little red (just the day after surgery which turned out to be...

    Post spay care

    Honestly I feel awful. I would have been ok if the problem lied with us; if the room needed more frequent sanitation or we had to change their bedding even more frequently that would have been fine I am here to learn and to rectify my mistakes. But if its the clinic how am I supposed to continue...

    Post spay care

    I am heartbroken to hear this- it could very well be😔😪 As I mentioned they are not the best vet around. We've been keeping such a close eye on the kittens and caring for them like newborns that when something like this happens after all this effort it feels so disheartening. And I feel so bad...

    Post spay care

    Hi there! So I recently got 4 female kittens spayed and 2 of them developed abscesses/infections in their spay site on day 7 and day 8 post spay. They were on the cone almost all the time and in a well-sized recovery cage for 7 to 8 days with limited time to roam. We've been taking very good...

    Cat gave birth to underweight kittens

    This makes so much sense! And yes, kittens do have continuous access to the milk bar so it might be why the milk is always their first and only option. Will try and and give them a bit of time off to see how it goes from there; I really don't want them start associating food to something negative.

    Cat gave birth to underweight kittens

    Oh wow I never thought of that... Will give it a try. She does allow it, especially now that they are growing so I might be able to keep her away for a couple of hours. This is a great idea! thank you:)

    Cat gave birth to underweight kittens

    Hi!! An update: Kittens are doing so well. They are growing everyday and it's such a joy for me to watch them. However, I cannot get them to eat anything! They don't like food - at all. I've tried mousse, baby food, chicken.. they were completely refusing to try it. They're almost 6 weeks old...

    Cat gave birth to underweight kittens

    Hi! 3 out of the 4 babies have their eyes fully open now. I think the 4th baby is also getting there soon🥰 I also don't have pictures of their eyes specifically because we can't carry them long enough to take pictures of their eyes without upsetting mom **sighh. She's almost 2 years but its...

    Cat gave birth to underweight kittens

    Hi! My cat gave birth to kittens and today is day- 19. The kittens are almost three weeks old and as of today 2 out of the 4 kittens eyes are only half open. They are persian kittens and they have semi exotic faces so I am just wondering if this is the reason? However, 2 out of the 4 littermates...
