Re: Fostering Question

Hi there I agree with Mollycat about seeing if you could foster until adoption happens & perhaps a dual adoption would be lovely. Vivian

Re: Newly Adopted 2 Year Old Cat HATES ME

Hi Murph all good suggestions here. Another thing I was told is when looking at a cat blink a lot until they get to know you. If you look directly at them, they may think you’re being aggressive. Keep us posted. Vivian

Re: Blood in stool - Newly adopted cat

Hi Vic sorry to read this. Worrying & upsetting. Take on Lilynmitz’s advice. Whenever I’ve spotted blood in stools I’ve immediately wormed them for tape worm .. unsure but could it be parasite related. Keep us posted. Vivian

Hi Ariess praying little un’s ok. Are you taking mum? If so are you able to wrap the little un in some thing warm & keep separate to mum as sometimes they can roll in them & smother them. Mum needs to know little un’s close by. Keep us posted. Vivian

Re: 11 week old kitten with loose stools

Hi Xtina just remembered I’ve a friend who breeds Ragdolls, she buys baby’s food Farax (sp) a powder she mixes in with food she gives her kittens. She swears it helps their calcium levels. Maybe you could look into this to add nutrients to your kitten’s food. Vivian

Hi Dave this does happen. Sometimes a vet will wait, especially if the kitten’s around 8-12 weeks (personally I think this is too young for neutering, speying) to see if the testicle will drop. TC was around 12 mths when he was surrendered to Little Paws, with the folks who’d adopted Snow Girl, surr...
