    When to euthanize?

    I thank you all for the replies. Of course it’s natural to second guess and think about things I should have done differently and I’ve been doing that. She only got diagnosed with lymphoma about a month ago. For about two months prior, I noticed she wouldn’t always eat her cat food but she...

    When to euthanize?

    I called the vet and told them what was going on. They were able to fit me in this afternoon. After they assessed her, they felt it was that time to euthanize. She couldn’t really feel poop in there but more the mass and her condition had gotten worse than even a week ago when I took her in. She...

    When to euthanize?

    Thank you. I’ve contacted a couple at home euthanasia places. They are quite expensive however. But also less trauma than going to the vet I suppose. I have a follow up at the vet on the 6th if she makes it that long.

    When to euthanize?

    My elderly cat recently got diagnosed with lymphoma. She is going through spells of having constipation then after giving meds, she has diarrhea. I then gave to give her meds to stop the diarrhea which just keeps us going in circles. She’s on an appetite stimulant. It helps some but she only...

    Cats Ate The Dog's Heartgard Plus

    Thanks for the replies. They did say I could bring them in, but it's around a 40 minute drive, and we had family coming over for the 4th. I kept an eye on them all day, and they ate their supper fine and are acting normal. No vomit or anything like that that I could find they did, so I think...

    Cats Ate The Dog's Heartgard Plus

    I got my dog's Heartgard Plus filled yesterday. I have three dogs that weigh between 50-80 lbs. each. I left the bag of medicine on the counter this morning as I went for a run. I came back an hour later, and they had torn through the bag and the packaging and ate all 3 pills. I'm not sure which...

    Tidy Cats Breeze litter box- Anyone use?

    I have a spay surgery scheduled at Banfield next Tuesday. I am going to purchase one when I go to see if I like it. I have a $7.00 off coupon so I hope they are on sale at Petsmart.

    Tidy Cats Breeze litter box- Anyone use?

    Does the urine have a hard time going through more litter? I didn't know if using more litter would cause a problem or not.

    Tidy Cats Breeze litter box- Anyone use?

    Since the kittens are only 19 weeks, they won't have as hard a time switching? I figure they will take to it immediately, but you never know I suppose.

    Metacam

    The local low-cost spay clinic that I took the fosters to the other day, I believe, was given Metacam. The female I got two extra days worth of pain meds, and it was Metacam. They are now at the humane society awaiting adoption so I hope their isn't any problems down the line for the people who...

    what's your favorite cat litter?

    I have been using crystal litter for the last few months (Fresh Step and Mimi). I really like it, but I was changing it twice a week with fostering six kittens. It was getting expensive to do so. I now have half as many kittens so I may stay on using it or I might try the Breeze litter system. IDK.

    Tidy Cats Breeze litter box- Anyone use?

    I was curious if anyone uses the Breeze litter system? I am thinking of changing to this for the kittens I have remaining. I love the crystal litter, but it can get expensive (especially when I was fostering 6 kittens. I was changing this twice a week because of the urine). It may not be as bad...

    Upset about giving up the kittens I've been caring for...

    Thank you. I will try this to see if I can get their mind off their buddies. I just keep thinking did I jump the gun too soon? Should I have waited a little longer? Just second guessing myself.

    New Foster Mom!

    Very cute kittens. I hope they find loving homes. I had been taking care of 6 kittens since they were 4 weeks old, and I only could keep 2 of them. I took the rest yesterday to the humane society. We are really struggling. The two I kept aren't playing or eating much just sleeping. They are...

    Upset about giving up the kittens I've been caring for...

    I am struggling. I didn't know I would be this emotional or upset about this. It is so quite around here. I miss them so much. The two I was able to keep are not playing and not eating a lot. They are as sad as I am, and I even had thoughts about going back to get them even if they charged me...

    Upset about giving up the kittens I've been caring for...

    Thank you all so much for the support. We dropped them off earlier today, and all of them came back negative on the test so that was good. We got to say our goodbyes, but I did better than I expected. I cried more on the way than I did at the shelter. I felt better once I went in, and started...

    Upset about giving up the kittens I've been caring for...

    You know I just kinda stumbled into this whole fostering thing. We had a stray at our business for about  around a year and a half. She wasn't that friendly at first, but she eventually warmed up to us. She came up pregnant, but must have lost the litter because her milk dried up quickly. Well I...

    Upset about giving up the kittens I've been caring for...

    From what I have heard and just my general thought, is that all black cats are harder to adopt than the multicolored ones. I've heard the superstitious factor or whatever, but I have always though black kitties were adorable.

    Upset about giving up the kittens I've been caring for...

    Thank you. That is a great idea about the photos. They are handsome little fellows. I named them Swiffer and Zorro. :) The female the top picture, and I named her Pixie. The tabby is called Tiger. When I went to get them fixed, she asked me which one was Swiffer and which was Zorro. I said you...

    Upset about giving up the kittens I've been caring for...

    I figure I won't make it out of the facility without crying. They will probably be like what is wrong with her. Haha. Three of them are all black so I hope they don't have a hard time getting adopted. Here they are:
