Re: Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with kitten flat chest syndrome?

Hi Mark, I've had 2 in the rescue over the years, sadly the first one didn't make it but her chest wasn't just flat is actually caved inwards and she got repeat chest infections and we lost her at 10 weeks, the other one however was a litter of 7 and at about 2 weeks she started to drop weight and t...

Re: Feline Epilepsy

It's quite likely the other cats may be a little scared of her if they've witnessed the seizures. I have a cat who has seizures in his sleep and his brother (who I have sadly lost to fip) used to get really annoyed with Roo when he had seizured and hiss and growl at him. Unfortunately all anti seizu...

Re: Tough decision on infected cat - probable FIP

it means if you are thinking of trying to rehome him for the time he has left you will struggle to find someone willing to take on a terminally ill cat as not many people will want to. The few people that will consider taking cats like that on are few and far between and usually already have a house...

Re: Tough decision on infected cat - probable FIP

I'm so sorry to hear this, I run a rescue and have lost 2 cats to it over the years it's just devastating. I know you will want to follow vets advice but fip is not contagious and if your cat has a brother then potentially he could already have it as it mutates from the corona virus which is contagi...

Re: Throat cancer

Thanks, didn't know cats could get that, but her glands aren't up either so guess not highly likely, it's further down into her throat than you could see on a cat, could only see it with the scope and her unconscious so her tongue was right out.

Mmm that's very strange but I guess backs up the issue that you can never tell what's going on in the areas you can't see!
She is covered with antibiotics too but they are fairly confident its growth tissue as opposed to infection unfortunately.

Re: Advise on catching my cat

Really trapping is the least stressful way of getting him, and fastest. You can take the end panel off the trap and feed him in it for a few days to get him used to it and then set it, or get yourself a medium dog crate and put food at the back, and you would need to tie string to top and bottom of ...

Re: Advise on catching my cat

Hi Pauline
By far the easiest way will be to borrow a trap off a local rescue or cats protection, then when he goes in for the food just cover trap with a towel and take him home and let him out when safe and secure at home.
Good luck!

Re: large nose

Hi yes the little cat I had with it had some special medication the vets had to order in from some specialist or something and once she finished it she was right as rain and eventually re homed (she was a foster cat), it's quite easy to test for, I think it can be swab or blood test.

Re: large nose

Cryptococcosis can cause a swollen nose and lymph nodes. It's something cats can catch from pigeon droppings.
Other than that maybe a food allergy?

Re: Advice please abandoned kitten

It's sounds like the kitten is fading from dehydration. The vet may be able to save with fluids, it's common in such a large litter for one to always not get enough. I run a rescue and have had many a similar kitten come along.

Yes you need to back track on the introductions and have the dog confined to a crate or spare room so the cat gets to meet it slowly, with cats its fight or flight and they will attack in fear and sometimes humans will get caught up in it, I have a foster cat at the moment who will attack me if she ...
