Re: FIV POSITIVE CAT VOMITING

Hi Chloe, Having had several FIV positive cats, I think this is very unlikely to be related to his FIV status. I agree with Angela's advice as it could be that he is just eating too quickly. Or, maybe just eating too much at once, and so it doesn't stay down for long. You could try giving smaller me...

Re: Eating Mice

Just one thought to add here - you may already do this, but it would be a good idea to keep your cat indoors at night. That should reduce the number of mice your cat catches, but also it lowers the chances of cats getting into danger themselves. If he's not used to being kept in at night, it may tak...

Re: Time for a new start...

Well since you have started a list of possibilities... another option might be to go along to one of your local rehoming centres, and see who picks you! It's quite usual for that to happen, then you would put the outcome in the hands of fate - or, should that be in the ' paws ' of fate. It might be ...

Re: need help getting rid of cat urine

When we had a bit of a spray problem a couple of months ago I discovered a product called Simple Solution, (which you can get on amazon or the usual pet supplies websites), and have found it brilliant for stain removal and particularly for smell removal! They do one for soft furnishings and one for ...

Good News! US study on FIV+ and FIV- living safely together

Most of us on this forum already know that FIV positive and negative cats can live happily and healthily together, when neutered and living harmoniously in a normal household, so it's good to hear that this message is finally getting through in veterinary circles… this from the US… Good news for FIV...

10 Tigers killed in illegal club in China

Words fail me... wealthy businessmen in China paying to see endangered tigers killed (electrocuted) for their entertainment, and then eaten afterwards. Disgusted doesn't cover it. This petition (already over 91,000 and counting when I signed) is calling for justice: http://www.care2.com/go/z/2095108...

Hi Spence, In addition to Meriad's advice, you might want to check out the advice pages below - although these are aimed at cats being brought into a home situation, the same broad principles will apply. If there is an office or small room at the new premises, that you could use to start your cat of...

Petition to stop live exports of farmed animals from the UK: Overcrowded trucks, gruelling long journeys, often with little or no food or water. Many animals are injured during the journey, some even die of exhaustion, sickness or injury. It's bad enough that we send our farm animals to be killed ab...

Re: eye drops semi feral

Hi Sooty, Had a similar thing a few years ago with semi-feral/nervous cat, where we had to give ear drops. The best way we found was to put him up on a table and sort of 'flatten' him (gently but firmly) down onto his tummy. Then one of us would hold him flat, while the other administered the drops....
