Re: Refusal of adoption of indoor cats

There is simply no point in assessing an indoor only home if you don't have a cat with has the health issues that require it to live indoors it simply isn't going to reach the acceptable levels to keep an active and healthy cat stimulated like the outdoors. I'm sorry I haven't got time to read the e...

Re: Refusal of adoption of indoor cats

The stimulation of outside access can never be replicate din an indoor only environment and I'm sorry but outside access is a fundamental right and necessity for cats which is why there is no need for discussion if somebody comes to us wanting and 'indoor only cat' We may believe cats are domesticat...

Re: Refusal of adoption of indoor cats

Re: Kitten heart murmur

The vast majority of cats suffering from low grade heart murmurs will live symptom free BUT a large amount will get a thrombosis suddenly due to a small blood clot so your vet may appear un concerned but I would always raise the concern of blood clots. I have seen far to many young and old cats with...

Re: Titer Testing

Vets unfortunately see annual vaccinations as easy money and most people don't question their vets!! To many now don't even offer Felv as an additional vaccination and just carry the whole lot as the only option as a single vaccine which for a 9 week old kitten is one heck of an assault on the syste...

Re: Question about Corona Virus please advise!

Corona Virus is endemic in cats effecting about 80% of the population at some point or other. The virus in itself is benign for most of the time and in very rare cases for reasons still unknown can mutate into FIP which is terminal but by no means a threat to your existing cats.

Re: Kitten heart murmur

Grade 1-2 heart murmurs in kittens are not unusual as like babies when born their heart valves are open and close over a few days/weeks in most cases but some take longer. If it is this then by 5/6 months it should have gone, if not then a low level heart murmur won't usually cause problems but need...

Re: Kittens home alone

As a rescue I also don't home single kittens either especially if they're going to be left for periods of time.

Top Life Goats Milk is good and can be bought ready made from most supermarkets but I'd suggest just a extremely dilute formula at this stage of 25% kitten milk to 75% water to keep him hydrated but allow his guts to settle for 24hrs. 190g is small but big enough to forgo milk for 24hrs.

Ideally putting them back and then sitting back and waiting for mum who is hopefully domestic is the ideal as it means mum can be spayed and kittens homed when old enough. Unfortunately not an ideal situation so hand rearing is the only option now. Ring local vets, most have at least one member of s...
