Re: Cat scared to go out now, was fine before

My cat will only use a litter tray inside whereas my previous cat always went outside. I have a secure garden so she was always safe. As the other say a litter tray inside would be best.

Re: Rehoming and behavioural issues - desperate for help.

Re: Blindness

Thank you all for your comments. I obviously will see what the vet says if this should have to happen, but am glad cats have managed in these circumstances. My friend has a 19 year old cat who had a detached retina and has to have 1/8 th of a blood pressure tab a day. I was concerned and you have al...

My cat Willow has brown pigmentation marks in her eyes both the iris and the white part. The vet referred me to a specialist who confirmed it wasn't cancer as they are flat and she has no other symptoms. However, I have to go back 4th November to check the eyes. They have more colour change but she ...
