Re: Anyone ever find blood in faeces?

I did take her to the vets and she was seen within an hour of me phoning up. I took the baby wipe I used to clean it off her with me. There were no signs of cuts or trauma down there. The vet took her temperature and checked her abdomen, weight etc. She didn't think there was any obvious sign of a p...

Re: Anyone ever find blood in faeces?

Hi. I've noticed blood on the fur behind the bottom of one of my cats this morning. At least I know who it was likely to have been in october.

Do you think I should take her to the vets?

Behaviour has been normal ever since then, as I've been keeping a dairy.

I leave my cats at home for 11 hours most weekdays when I go to work. I have an internet camera so I get a notification on my phone every time one walks by.

Re: My kitty doesn’t love me anymore???:,(

As you say, he is confused by the new environment (and probably different people).

Re: Is my siamese really a siamese?

I'd get a vet to check her out if worried. One of my cats (pictured on my avatar) has Siamese characteristics - blue eyes, mostly white coat, distinctive yowly voice and a tendency to jump on my shoulders, but I don't know who the father is. Her mother is a black and white moggy (also in my househol...

Re: My cat keeps waking me up really early and sleeping all day

I normally leave my back door or back window open slightly when they are out and don't want to come back in at night.

Almost invariably they are back in and on the bed just when I've settled down, and have to get up and close the door again.

Thanks for responding Janey.

I was immediately expecting the worst, but, if occasional, doesn't seem uncommon.

Are the likes of Whiskas and Sheba grain-rich, I wonder?

Anyone ever find blood in faeces?

I found some bright red blood on top of some diarrhoea two weeks ago in the cat tray. It could have come from any of the three cats, so I've been checking each one after they go (when I'm in) and haven't noticed a recurrence. The internet seems to suggest it isn't that unusual, as long as it's brigh...

Re: What are your thought's on..........

If the cat will wear one, they soon get used to it.

Some of my cats have been able to wear collars, and I used to selotape a Loc8tor Plus tag onto it, so I could always track them when they went out. The collar came off at night.

Persistently attacking people, disrupting the owner's lifestyle, and annoying neighbours who might have the power to get the owner evicted, goes beyond "inconvenient."
That's still no reason to kill them.

One of my cats had 4 large red marks on her face and much of the fur missing where she'd been scratching a few weeks ago. The vet said they were infected flea bites, even though she'd been de-flead a month earlier. It must have come up very quick as I only noticed it one day. She's better now. Could...

but any treatment plan could take weeks to carry out, and I'm not sure your situation with neighbours and children gives you that option. That was my thought, too.
