Spotty has a necrosis on her foot where the rough vet technician jabbed and stabbed a needle at the other vet before.
Our new vet who is marvelous, said Spotty should make a full recovery.
He just needs to see new tissue forming on the wound.

Of course. Once Spotty is back. I will feel free at that point to tackle the former vetinarian!

Thank you.

I'm so glad Spotty is doing better and should make a full recovery! That's great news.

Thank you.
Doing a little better now. The wound is not bothering her so much, thank goodness.
Wrapping and cleaning it, is another matter 🤣
So far, so good. Eating, drinking, not enough urine, hope that increases now.
I think it's easier treating an animal you don't know, or love quite so much.
There's a level of panic in getting things exactly right, if you know what I mean.
From a personal point of view.

Thank you again 👍


This is great news! How is she recovering?

Update: she bit me! 🤣
We always played hard, her and I. Much, so much better.

So my take on this. Don't feed you Cat's crap wet food. Dry, good quality, plenty of CLEAN water.

A treat now and again, yes. But that's where it stops. Now I eat alone away from them during my time here, so smells will not hit nostrils.

Foot healing, just like my old sidekick taunting me again, so missed that.
Duct Tape mouse is happy again.

Thank you 👍

Gee thanks.
Cat's suppliment water from wet food. If a kidney has a problem. This will not be known until there is one.

My Cats have fresh water. I have 19.

Thank you.

Good quality wet food isn't bad either.
I feed dry and wet food to my cats.
Clean water is essential, but I think we all know this ☺

You have 19 cats? 😳
Wet food provides moisture, 80% of wet food weight is water.
I add three or four teaspoons of fresh water to each wet meal, so the water intake at each meal is greatly increased, and compensates for the low water drive that cats have.

Good morning. Yes, indeed. Mamu cat started this 7 years ago. Gorgeous cat, very loyal and knowing. Wasn't that friendly enough to tooch. But she gave our garden some fun with kittens. 🤦

4th generation now. I can nearly touch most. Catching them in a humane cat trap? Impossible! Very smart cookies. 🤣

I can only tell you what I see. Spotty has been given back at least 2 years of life.
My new vet worked in various cat food places as a learning tool.

He said despite what it says on the packet, the reality can be different. Now my other insider likes this dry food too. Both drink masses of water, and are looking happy. I'll take that over what was before.

Soon I will have to address the outsiders. Temps are dipping, water will freeze. Major problem. Even boiled water allowed to cool, will freeze over in less than 10-15 minutes soon.

I've no idea how to combat this?

Now, if anyone knows a good way to shut a Dog up over the road? Bark all day and night.

I'd be very grateful.

Thank you, bless,, be well.
