Re: Pituitary gland (kitten dwarfism)

Could it just be a byproduct (that sounded awful...!!) of interbreeding?? A feral colony doesn't know anything about genetics etc so dad mated with daughter etc and goodness knows what the results are...hopefully it's not brain damaged...no different to humans I suppose. That's why we have laws agai...

Re: Help - cat climbing on TV

I expect cats get on things like tv's as they are warm....It's surprising how much heat these flat screen tv's give out..!! Ours is attached firmly to the wall..but if you walk next to it when it's been on a while..it's like a radiator on full blast.. (Usually on Create & Craft as I need some inpira...

Re: A dilemma with my problem cat

Have you tried anything like Zyklene which if given every day might get her to chill out ..she might (say..might..) realise that chilling is better than fighting?
Maybe worth a try to see how she reacts..it'd give you a break too..!!

Hope all goes well.

Joe, I seem to have missed Mila's age?..if she is quite young I don't think there should be any problems with anesthesia but like humans there is always a risk..we all have to contend with the worry.

Hello Joe I mean you no malice as I expect you bang your head against the established vet. practices but I'm curious to learn why "Eastern Europe" seem so anti neutering?

Re: Oh dear trouble with Thomas alas....

Just thought...They poo OK in the tray every morning..I'd have thought that operation was more fraught than peeing in the tray which they both do do.It's the random nature of peeing indoors that's difficult to fathom out. It's almost like a defiant thing?

Re: kitten peeing on my side of the bed

Have you tried "puppy pads" they have a mild attractant which encourages peeing on the pad...you could try putting one where the litter tray is...they aren't called "training pads" for nothing..worth a try?

Re: Where to buy? Help with advice.

Sorry to be negative but why would you want to give your cat calcium tablets...a balanced diet should give him/her all their daily requirements... Like a lot of human dietary suppliments if your body doesn't need them they are excreated...(so waste of money.) and some additives build up in the body ...
