    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    I'm also based in NRW!! Agreed, she said that the litter was from a friend of hers, but there is of course no way for me to verify that! I had been in contact with the local shelter for months, I'd get in contact with them every time they had an indoor cat available, and even went to see a...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Hi all, Just to give you an update! After I didn't respond to her last request for one day, I received a second message simply with a bunch of question marks. At this point I recruited my German friend to help me write a succinct and to the point message to get my point across. Essentially it...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Hi all, thanks for your responses! We did have a (hand) written contract basically just saying that I would be responsible for all her medical care (she hadn't been to the vet at all and wasn't vaccinated, chipped, de-wormed or spayed) and that I wouldn't pass her around and just sell her on...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Agreed, thankfully between work, the pandemic and a new kitten I'm pretty busy so it doesn't really bother me other than annoying me when I see the notification coming up! And yes, I don't doubt that all those elements can peacefully Co exist, although I think Sky is greatful to have a bit of...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    I don't think it would go further, its more of an annoyance than truly concerning. She sent me a message this evening and I think I'll write a measured response tomorrow morning that since its been 6 weeks now I don't think weekly updates are necessary and I will send her updates each month...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Thanks for the quick response, yeah it's through WhatsApp. Where I live it's very common to sign short hand written 'protection contracts' privately like you would from a shelter and in there was a sentence that I would send updates, and honestly I really wouldn't mind sending them every so...

    Previous owner requesting weekly updates!

    Hi all, I have a bit of an odd situation regarding Sky's previous owner that'd I'd appreciate some advice on. A bit of background, I put up adverts on some classifieds sites here in the country I live saying that I wanted to give a cat a new home whilst I was looking in shelters also. She got...

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    She certainly has a lot of energy! Instead of spreading her alloted dry food out to cover a 4am feed too I'll just give her an extra portion then 😊

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    Hiya, Ah yes I live in Europe 😂 So on the pouches of food the reccomend 200g/24hrs if you're only feeding that and her dry food reccomends 80g/24hrs if you're only feeding that. So she gets 50% of the reccomended total feeding portion of each, 100g wet and 40g dry. She's gaining weight...

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    Hiya, I guess I should have been more specific! She gets 50g (half a pouch) wet food in the AM. And the rest in the evening - the reccomended amount per day of the one I give her is 2 pouches a day so she gets 50% of that. Then I measured the dry food portions that come out the machine and she...

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    Hiya, thanks for your advice! Her feeding schedule is currently 7:30 am wet food 12pm dry food 5pm dry food 10pm wet food In total, calorie wise, its 50/50 adult wet and high quality grain free kitten kibble (she has refused every type of wet kitten food I've put infront of her and will only...

    How long do I wait after meowing stops to do something?

    Hi all, I've had my sweet little Sky for about 4 weeks now, she is coming up on 5 months old. Very early on I realised having her in the bedroom with me at night isn't great for either of us, and since Day 1 she has been shut out of the bedroom. Usually sometime between 5am and 6am she uses...

    Kitten off her food and very sleepy

    Hi all, Thought I'd just give you a quick update! Sky has been doing so much better over the last few days, she's much more like her little mischievous 4 month old self again! Her appetite is back with a VENGEANCE, for the time being I'm keeping her on the 'old' adult food she seems to love...

    Kitten off her food and very sleepy

    Yes! I also completely understand his concerns too 😊 Yeah I only have to go into the office for a few hours a day this week so I can keep an close eye on her - I've already got a little diary and I'm making note of her general demeanor and food/toilet habits several times a day. This first...

    Kitten off her food and very sleepy

    Hi all, I guess I over simplified when I said that the vet said 'don't worry' - more specifically he said he wasn't too concerned yet and that if she didn't improve at all then I should call him Monday morning or if she continued to have diaharrea for more than 24hrs or I got more concerned...

    New kitten panic attacks

    Just a quick update for you all, the last few days have been much better! The camera has helped reassure me she's not simply crying by the door all day whilst I am away! Unfortunately she's gone off her food and has been very sleepy the last few days, I'm going to take her to the vets tomorrow...

    Kitten off her food and very sleepy

    Hi all! I have an 18 week old kitten who has been with me for the past 2 + 1/2 weeks. In that time I gradually transitioned her to a more appropriate wet food formulated for kittens since she had been only on adult wet food on her previous home. All was going well and we were on 95% kitten...

    New kitten panic attacks

    Her previous family named her but it seemed to suit her kinda cloud like colouring so I kept it! She's 25% main coon and has these little ear tufts that are just so darn cute. And yes I have to just keep the faith that this is simply a product of her age and her not being used to being alone...

    New kitten panic attacks

    I am a bit worried she is starting to show signs of separation anxiety - in her previous home where she was from 10-16 weeks she was pretty much never on her own with a dog and 4 young kids in the family. I'm hoping that by sticking to a routine and trying to desensitise to me coming and going...

    New kitten panic attacks

    So am I! I won't lie I'm still very anxious and stressed but reading the notes that say I'm not completely failing as a new cat mum are very reassuring and make me more optimistic that in time these feelings will lessen!
