Re: Injury from fighting

And if Ted could talk he'd say, 'Yeah, but you should see the state of the other guy!' :lol: Bad lad for fighting! He'll be over the worst of it now but the bathing and draining always takes time.

Injury from fighting

Poor Ted got some nasty injuries from fighting yesterday. At first I only noticed a tiny scratch on his nose- it stood out because his nose is all white, but I failed to spot the major injuries at first. It wasn't until he was acting really quiet and refusing food that I suspected something more was...

Cats nose bleeding?

Teds right nose started bleeding last August. Not a heavy bleed at all but the dried blood was always up his nose. Of course when I googled it all sorts of horrible things show up like cancer... At the time I took him to the vet and she just said if it was the same a week later to investigate. It cl...

sick cat after vaccine?

So I debated about getting Ted his vaccines after a bad experience with my cat jimmy but I took him in for it today and now he is all dazed, quiet, sleeping a lot and refusing food which he NEVER does. Is this normal after a vaccine? I don't remember him being like this last year:(

pet insurance?

Do you think it is worth it? or is it just better putting that money away every month?
We got insurance out for the first time ever this year which is around £16 a month for two cats but we have to pay the first like 70ish anyways... just wondering what everyone does and if it is worth it?

Our insurance does say if they get anything a vaccine would prevent and they have not had it then they will not pay. I am still so undecided.

Re: To vaccinate or not?

I think I would consider where you live too - fairly rural and I probably wouldn't worry too much about vaccinations. But if an area where potential for lots of contact with other cats then I think I would vaccinate. A difficult situation though! :( I would say there are another 4 near by that he h...

Re: To vaccinate or not?

I must admit that I vaccinate older cats less and less often - anually up to double figures and then every 2 years, then and so on. How old is Ted (I'm sorry I don't remember)? Having said that, I've often had a few sniffles and an off day after a jab but never anything worse. Ted is 4 and is as fa...

Re: To vaccinate or not?

That's a tough one given your experiences, and I can't say whether they were related to the jab or not. I'd suggest you talk it through carefully with your vet. But having nearly lost our Siamese to cat flu (long ago, in the days when boarding kennels didn't insist on vaccination - we only just got...
