Re: Blocked anal glands....

Thanks for the reply tiggertoo; at its worst, how often did Millie have to have her glands emptied?

Re: Blocked anal glands....

Thanks for the reply Mark. Buddy is already on dry food ('light' stuff, usually James Wellbeloved or Royal Canin) as he is overweight, which I have also read can contribute to blocked anal glands. I'll have a look at the contents of the ones he is currently eating. Thanks for the advice :)

Blocked anal glands....

Evening all, I took Buddy to the vet's a couple of weeks ago as he had been scooting around on his backside and as he has been wormed I suspected it could be his anal glands. The vet confirmed this was the case and emptied them but only two weeks later he is scooting again :( I've never had a cat th...

Re: My baby has FIP

Hello there. So sorry to hear about your furbabe. My cat Milo was diagnosed with this a few years ago and was only about 2 years old. I knew it was time to have him put to sleep when he started urinating near his food bowl; knowing how clean cats are I knew he must have been distressed to have to do...

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Thanks all for asking after him; he's just been having a sit on the patio as the vet said it was ok, he hates being in and I mean hates it! Antibiotics seem to be working quite quickly as he is much less stinky that he was :)

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

He is Meriad, he's taken himself off upstairs and plonked himself in a corner where he is nice and cool. Poor lad - he is fed up, especially as he's such an outdoor cat. The vet has said to try and keep him in as long as possible but if it is distressing him to let him out as he has now had the anti...

Re: Sebastian :(

What a beautiful boy he was. You did what was right for your boy but he has left a massive Sebastian-shaped hole in your life and it is very painful as you saw him every day and all of a sudden he is no longer there. Just keep reminding yourself that you did what you did to free him from terrible pa...

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Just a quick update - Chompy has been to the vet and been given painkilling and antibiotic injections to get the infection under control before he goes back on Friday. The vet suspects one claw will need to be removed and possibly that the end of his toe is broken. She thinks he probably received a ...

Re: Should a one eyed cat be kept indoors?

Hi, I had a cat that loved being outdoors and I made the decision to continue allowing him to go out following an operation to remove an eye and despite us living in a very, very quiet area, he did get hit by a car. Fortunately he was very lucky and only had slight grazing to his leg where the car h...

Julie - I am sure he will be fine, he knew where he was going and how to get back and had a lovely time I am sure. I have just posted about my cat having been out for 13 hours with a sore paw.....and he sauntered back like 13 hours was nothing :) If Barney is anything like my other cat Buddy, a quic...

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Now you mention it I have got some drops for cats that you put in water and on food that is meant to help with keeping calm, I bought it when trying to introduce my second male cat (it didn't help in that situation :D but it's worth a try for this). Will give that a go; thanks.

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Hi again - just rang the vet, they said if he seems ok in himself and is eating normally, try and bathe in cooled salt water today and tonight and get him there first thing tomorrow without food in the morning in case they need to sedate him and look more closely. If he deteriorates I can ring them ...

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Thanks so much. Just boiling water to cool for a bathe and he is under strict instructions to stay on the couch all of today (cue howling all night but that's how it's got to be). At first glance it looks like one of his claws is at a funny angle and his paw seems a bit smelly so definitely infected...

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Lo and behold Jacks - he's just appeared in the garden and is ravenous! His toe/claw is swollen and it looks like there is pus coming from it. I am letting him eat, locking him in and going to try and bathe it. I'm not sure it warrants an emergency vet till I've had a proper look at it; my vet is no...

Re: Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

Thanks Jacks for a bit of reassurance! He is a real roamer, scours the fields behind for voles all night usually but generally comes within half an hour or so of me shouting. We had a house full of people here until around 1am so I was loathe to force him in then as he doesn't like all the noise and...

Cat with sore paw not come home since last night

I noticed yesterday that my ginger boy Chompy's back paw looked a bit sore and like he had been licking it. He was still going in and out of the house quite happily (he likes to be outdoors mostly as I live in a semi-rural area with fields behind me) so I wasn't too concerned and when he came in for...

Here are some pictures of my furbabes, including lovely Millie. There is ginger Chompy who is 'just chillin', then latest rescue tabby Buddy who I found...
