Re: Insurance for FIV cats?

Hi Natalie89 and Reb4002 Thank you for considering our little FIV+ friends - I have one and he is awesome. Just to say I have insurance for my Orion through MoreThan and they've been great so far. The advice I've had from them is that, as long as my vet says it's not FIV+ related, then they will pay...

Unexpected Burmese Orion says hello!

Hi Lilith, Crewella and everyone else who offered me advice TWO whole years ago... I can't believe it's been so long! Cutting to the end of the story, my unexpected Burmese friend and I stuck it out and we are still together - he's just had his fifth birthday (official, of course, like the Queen!) H...

FIV+ cat sneezing

Hi there I recently adopted a lovely FIV+ boy, about 3. He's been with me for a week but over the past couple of days he's started sneezing. There's no discharge from his eyes and only clear drops from his nose. He's a bit less energetic than usual but not off his food or water at all! I've spoken t...

Re: Hi new cat owner flipping out

Hi Hayleyg First of all, no matter how much you read having a new kitten/cat for the first time is never as straightforward as you expect - try not to feel bad about that. Most of the times people post on social media about how great it is having a new kitten they only put the good stuff on there - ...

Re: holidays

Hi Catslave From the other side, I've just cat-sat for a friend of mine for a week and Buffy (their cat) was absolutely fine - in fact she was better behaved for me than for them in some cases! And she was purrrrfectly(!) happy when I got there - no evidence of stress or unhappiness and we had a goo...

Re: Food for FIV+ cat

Hi there Sorry for your loss :( - my first one died recently too so I feel for your pain. I've just adopted an FIV+ cat and when I was discussing the idea with my vet surgery their advice was to put him on standard neutered male food (my surgery favours Royal Canin but I've also used Hills in the pa...

Re: Unexpected Burmese cat - advice needed

Hi Mayday and Lilith Thanks for your replies. Lilith - reading about Molly (who sounds adorable) has made me realise how good time with Orion is going to be :) After a very tearful night and a lot of reflection I think the biggest part of the problem is me :idea: - I'm trying too hard. I've realised...

Unexpected Burmese cat - advice needed

Hello Please don't judge me for this... I've recently adopted a cat from a rescue shelter. I visited him a number of times and he was very friendly so, after a slight delay for an injured tail, I finally brought him home last Saturday. I've had cats all my life of various colours who have all been D...
