    Question of the Day, Friday, February 26

    My three all eat differently too. I have separate little plates for each, because my gobbler, big Dutch, bolts his food like he is starved and then pushes his way into theirs. He will never be accused of looking starved! Yammy is completely spoiled since his health is the most fragile, and gets...

    Goodbye Sweet Murray

    There will always be that nagging doubt about when is the right time'. I have always believed in letting them go a day too early than being a day too late. I promised my Burt I would not bring him to the vet, and his end was full of suffering, something you regret even more. There comes a time...

    what steps should i take before and after neutering my cat?

    stop feeding/watering the late evening before. The reason is, if they have something in their stomachs it can be aspirated into their lungs because it is quite common to vomit after anesthesia.

    Cat asthma/bronchitis/lungworms not responding to steroids..any help please

    Well, if he is receiving oral steroids, you would have thought that would help. You might look back through your posts and write down any questions you have for the vet. It helps. Also bring in all tests done, bloodwork, etc. It prevents doing it again. You might look into food/environmental...

    tomcats behaviour after neutering

    Most stopped spraying, though some never do stop. They are much more affectionate and calm, and being aggressive with other cats is really cut down to almost nothing. I have big Tom cats walk right by the neutered boys, where they would have fought immediately before.

    what steps should i take before and after neutering my cat?

    I do not feed or water the night before. With feral cats you really can't control this, I just don't feed from the moment I live trap them. That is really all you do before, and after is about the same. I let them out as soon as they can stand and walk well, they usually hide for a bit. I have...

    Cat asthma/bronchitis/lungworms not responding to steroids..any help please

    Did he receive a steroid injection? those help with inflammation. I would think an x-ray would show heart/lungworms, they are pretty evident if he is that bad. My cat with badly scarred lungs gets nebulizer txs. that seems to help. I put him in a carrier. Put the end of the nebulizer tube in the...

    Did my cat rip her stitches?

    The incision site really looks very good. The incision is glued or there would be stitches visible, I would say that would say she is fine. A lump is normal too, there is swelling inside. As long as there is no bright red blood, pus, or extreme swelling, everything is fine. I've had cats that...

    harness/collars

    It just takes time.....my Chrissy would fall over on her side like she was stunned and couldn't move when I put her harness on at first. It took about a week or two to leave it on longer and longer during the day. same with the collar. they DO get used to it, just like with everything else with...

    I feel like i let my feral cats down

    I have gone through the same heartbreak with my dumped strays and ferals. Most found lying on your busy road, but some killed by coyotes and dogs. Of course, it hurts, they each have their own little personalities and it is soul-shattering to think after their hard life, it ends this way...

    Time needed for neutering

    Yes, neutering makes them much more content in life. it also prevents bad habits like spraying/marking everything, and yowling to get out. all my neutered cats were kept from 9 in the morning until 5:00! They wanted to make sure they didn't have any reactions to the anesthesia and could walk...

    Never known such tolerant, good natured kittens

    How nice! Kids that are raised around pets usually learn to respect and love animals. That can't be wrong......

    Getting my kitten earlier than I planned and got some last minute questions

    I hate that Tidy Cats lightweight! It must not absorb quickly cause my cats got urine all over their feet and tracked white footprints all over my hardwood floors! I had to mop daily! Kittens that young would benefit from some goat's milk for a month or two, it is expensive but lasts a long time...

    Am I a horrible cat mom?

    There are many good wound products on Amazon, and at farm supply stores like Tractor Supply. I like that silver product too, just make sure anything you use is for cats.
