Re: Urgent new home needed 2 cats Birkenhead Merseyside

What a very sad situation you find yourself in. I appreciate what you say but is there no way that your parents would accept your cats? Are they aware you have had them since they were six weeks old and re-homing them would cause you a lot of distress? As a parent myself who has taken on two cats th...

Re: Putting my cat to sleep TOMORROW - worried it's not right

Again I am in tears reading this. What a beautiful girl she looked. Sometimes when our pets are ill we want to keep them for a bit longer for us and not for them so making the decision to let Buffy go was very brave indeed. You will want her back, that is only natural, but you did the right thing as...

Re: Putting my cat to sleep TOMORROW - worried it's not right

After reading this I have tears in my eyes which is not good as I am at work. Poor poor Buffy :( I know exactly what you mean by saying the light in her eyes is still there as I too had to make a similar decision with two of my much loved cats over the past few years. God bless Buffy and yourself too.

Re: Lost my beautiful best friend

Very sorry to hear of this sad loss. On 28th December 2004 at about 4.50pm our beautiful Tabby boy Harry nipped out of our front door when I opened it to let someone in. A knock at my door just after 5pm from a neighbour asking if I have a cat made me feel physically sick. I prayed he had maybe frac...

Re: Rescuing a cat a time

Have a look at the attached link which contains very useful advice : http://www.catchat.org/index.php/cat-missing-lost-found I would be inclined not to adopt another cat just yet. Six weeks is not that long for a cat to be missing given that some re-appear after having been missing for much longer.

Re: Looking to rehome my old lady - Nottingham

What a shame that you have to rehome your girl, especially after you have had her for so long.

I do hope that you can find her a suitable new home, possibly the one in Bedford that Crewella has found :)

There is meat content and meat content. It may be the same amount but it is what is also in there that needs to be taken into account.

Re: Very soft stools

Actually Sheba and Whiskas both have the same minimum 4% meat content. That may be the case but Sheba is a higher quality product than Whiskas or Go Cat. I disagree, as it has the same meat content, but its seen as a gourmet product and therefore costs more. Applaws is a higher quality product. Act...

I would think that the Sheba was too rich for him because it has a much higher meat content than Whiskas and Go Cat. One of mine cannot eat Applaws because of its high meat content - it gives him the squits! Try half a pouch with some biscuits and see how that goes. Actually Sheba and Whiskas both ...

Re: A diet for a sensitive stomach

I should mention that often vets receive a proportion of money from "recommended" foods such as Royal Canin Vet foods purchased from the practice, I have read reviews too of this food which again can be too rich for some cats. It is really a process of elimination (no pun intended!)
