Re: Cat not wanting to come in

Hi Thanks for the replies. He stays out if its raining but I have an outside cathouse that he goes in to thats warm and comfortable. Still eating fine and he's recently been flead. When I go out he'll come over for his usual attention but is wary of me picking him up to carry him in. There's no way ...

Cat not wanting to come in

Hi I've had a rescue cat now for 4 years, well one of 2. He's quite a scared cat and will only come to me and one friend who he's used to. His behaviour was great though.... stayed out until late evening and then would comne in with his sister to settle down for the night. Last year I decided to try...

Re: Pinkish red spot on cats nose.

My ginger cat has two little spots on his nose, just a birthmark I think. When you say spot do you mean that it's raised or flush to the nose?

Re: Very nervous rescue kittens

Hi Like Gillian says, patience is the key. I adopted 2 rescue cats (brother and sister) in 2012, the shelter said the boy would never be a cat to stroke. The girl came around quite quickly and the other took 3 months before I could stroke him. They used to sleep together and I stroked the tamer one ...

Theo, still needing a home

Hi Another short clip of Theo, waiting to be adopted through Rain Rescue. Theo is currently being fostered by me in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. He does have hyperthyroidism and this may be putting off people. The pill costs 28p a day and he takes it with a small amount of tuna... easy peasy. He's a ...

Re: New kitty help

Hi

One of my rescue cats took 3 months to calm down, you just need to stick at it. He was around 2 - 3 months old at the time. Whenever I had to take him to the vets I looked like I'd been in a battle, blood everywhere. Now he's a snugglebum.

Super affectionate boy needing adopting (Sheffield UK)

Hi I'm currently fostering a lovely eldery boy (tabby and white, 10 years plus). He's been with me and my cats for 2 and a half months. He does have hyperthyroidism, like a lot of elderly cats. His pill costs 28p a day and I think this may be putting people off adopting him, that and actually giving...

Re: Occasional Tuna ?

On the other side of the coin:) my foster cat has hyperthyroidism which you would think would be an even stronger reason to not give tuna. He does love tuna though and it makes pilling him easier. The vet says its absolutely fine to give a little tuna. FYI, me pilling my foster cat. https://www.yout...

Re: Rescue kit staying out all night.....

Thanks for your advice. Day 4 of Fanta being in. Theres been a couple of hissy fits but nothing drastic. As least we'll get through Bonfire night. Been to Pets at home today to get some new toys and catnip and see if we can start to integrate play time a little at a time between them all. Also decid...

Rescue kit staying out all night.....

Hi I guess I'm posting this for cat owners general opinion. Fanta, one of my rescue cats stays out all the time. He's a rescue cat that I've had since he was a kitten. Him and his sister came to me mid 2012. Early this year his sister sadly passed away. When I adopted them the foster parents and she...

Re: Letting out after moving house

I'm going through this thought process at the moment. I took in a rescue cat 4 weeks ago. For the first 2 weeks she hid. Now she is comfortable, sleeps with me and runs around the house like a mad thing. An extra problem I had was keeping my other rescue cat in when he had 24 hour access outside. He...

Re: Helping an existing cat when a new one has been adopted.

So Fanta seemed to be a lot more chilled Thursday and Friday so I bit the bullet and let him out Saturday morning. Saturday evening I was living to regret it as he wouldn't come in. It took me until 3am on Sunday to coax him in. I think I should keep him in at least until he's totally happy with Jem...

Re: Helping an existing cat when a new one has been adopted.

Thanks. I'll keep him in until the weekend and take it from there. If I do decide to let him out then at least I can stay up with the door open and tackle getting him in without worrying about no sleep and getting up for work. Strange that he wont come out of my bedroom when she is in the bedroom ne...

Helping an existing cat when a new one has been adopted.

Hi. I have a rescue cat who I adopted with his sister in 2012. His sister passed away in January and after a little while I thought it would be nice for him to have a new friend to play with or just for company whilst Im at work. After a lot of searching I found a lovely little girl, half his age, h...
