Re: At my wits end - do I have my 7 year old put to sleep?

You have done the right thing Nettie. Poor teddy would have spent his last days in fear and pain if you had put him through all the tests needed. Just giving tablets is enough To frighten most cats.

Let your other cat have a bit of grieving time for a couple of months before introducing a new cat.

Re: Outdoor litter tray

Thanks for that Kay, but as I am 77 and in poor health it wouldn't be practical for me to do all that. I have nobody to help either as my dh died recently. Sounds like a really good idea as well. Greenkitty. (i think that was the name but can't see it now. Apologies if I have it wrong) That was the ...

Re: introducing cats to new home

Years ago, when we got a new cat or kitten we would butter it's paws with butter (margarine then ) and when the had cleaned it off they were let free. Always worked never lost one. Wouldn't do it now though, i uaually wait 2 weeks.
