Re: URGENT HELP

Hi, Lilynmitz we coincided but I'll let my post stand - Hi and welcome. I'm very sorry to hear of your boy's injury. It does indeed sound neurological and irreversible. It must be so bewildering for him when he's been a normal active young cat. Years ago I knew of a case like this, a kitten similarl...

Re: Temporary accomodation for my friends cats

Hi Scott, no matter who provides the temporary accommodation, the cats must stay in for several weeks, otherwise they could stray and become disorientated; it takes quite some time for them to learn new territory. So I think you would be fine boarding them during your friends' move - all the best :)

She was a gannet up till the end - little else seemed to register with her but i...

Dismayed faces until she was restored. They'd thought they were going to be fo...
