Re: 9 month old cat keeps attacking me! Please help!

Hi and welcome :) I've got one like this. She's 8 next month but I've just laid a hand on her tail and she's jumped round at me with claws out ... only momentarily though. She's learning. She still goes for my ankles in the bathroom though, and like your girl she used to hate me talking on the phone...

Re: Mia - Chapter 3

Siamese, or Oriental anything - there are so many new breeds. Self-coloured Siamese used to be known as 'Foreign' black, red, tabby, anything. AND they talk - 'Wau', 'Wow' 'Woo', and so on. And they go on and on and on and then they say some more! And then they say some more after that! My suspected...

Re: Chronic diarrhoea help

Umm, it IS interesting, how something like this, a memory, an idea, reasserts itself - I know what you mean. It can start a whole new train of thought and discovery sometimes, like dreams occurring at a crucial moment, or even books appearing at the right time. I'm a great believer in serendipity.

Re: Hills y/d dried food

Hi and welcome and yes, good idea. My vet collects donations for the Blue Cross so any foods, script or otherwise, my cats end up disliking, go to a good cause. If you don't get any takers on here, local vets/charities might be an alternative.

And sorry to hear of your loss x

Lol, the calculating little baggage! I've generally had the opposite problem; I wouldn't dare let my Molly roam as I'm certain she'd attack any dog or child she met.

Locally, in the UK where I live, one charges £8 for a daily visit. Food and water arrangements over 3-4 days could work if a ...

Re: Ear Scratching - bandage paw or use a collar??

Hi there. It's hard to say. I once had a cat who came home with a cut back foot; the vet stitched it and sent her home with a great stout tight bulbous bandage ... the minute I turned my back, she'd removed it. It didn't go to waste though; her brother thought it was a mouse and spent many happy hou...
