Re: Paid Help Wanted - Experienced Cat Owners/Veterinary Nurses

[Ok sorry if I was suggesting the obvious, I was trying to understand exactly where the issue was - not that I'm local enough to be able to offer help. No, mine isn't fooled by treats or food either, we did try Gabapentin, I really do sympathise. Mine is exactly the same, fine once in, doesn't scrat...

Re: Paid Help Wanted - Experienced Cat Owners/Veterinary Nurses

Hi Alice, I've actually emailed all of the ones in my area explaining that I'd be more than happy to pay for someone's time and/or make a donation, but I've only heard back from one of them and that was telling me to leave the carrier out which I've already tried. I can only assume that they are too...

Re: Paid Help Wanted - Experienced Cat Owners/Veterinary Nurses

Thanks for your message Ruth B.

My vets don't offer a taxi service and I can get to the vets myself without a problem, it's actually getting her into the carrier that is the issue.

Re: Paid Help Wanted - Experienced Cat Owners/Veterinary Nurses

Thanks for your message Mollycat. I've already tried all the usual things like leaving the carrier out so it becomes part of the furniture, making it into a little den for her, leaving treats in it etc etc etc but she won't go near it. I've also tried Feliway and similar things but they don't help, ...

Re: Paid Help Wanted - Experienced Cat Owners/Veterinary Nurses

Thanks for your reply Maria. I'm a very savvy person so wouldn't just let anyone into my home :) One of the reasons I posted was because my vet keeps letting me down at the last minute when I've booked a home visit with them, which obviously isn't great, so that's why getting my cat to the vet mysel...

Re: What to do?

Hi I'm not sure if the other responses have already provided a solution for you but I just thought I'd ask if you've given any thought to cat runs, which can be as big or small/expensive/inexpensive as you want and can also be customised to your needs and which mean your cat can still be outside but...

Paid Help Wanted - Experienced Cat Owners/Veterinary Nurses

I'm looking for another experienced cat owner who can help me just a couple of times a year with getting my cat into her carrier for vet visits as I have some health issues which make this very difficult. My cat isn't aggressive in any way, she's very timid and hates getting picked up, so she gets ...

Re: Connecting With Other Cat Lovers in Merseyside

Hi Kay
No, I'm afraid not. My neighbour is a drug dealer so I have as little to do with him as possible!

Re: Connecting With Other Cat Lovers Merseyside

Thanks for your reply Crewella and yes I am on the Wirral :) Thanks also for your reply Lilleth. I haven't worded my post very well as I'm not going into hospital in a couple of weeks, I'm going into hospital later in the New Year (I've now amended my post to more accurately reflect this), so there...

Connecting With Other Cat Lovers in Merseyside

Hi I'm a proud mum to a gorgeous little cat, who charms and surprises me every day and who I absolutely adore. Unfortunately I may have to go into hospital a few months into the New Year and I don't want to put her in a cattery as I don't think she'd do well in one so I was hoping to make some frie...
