Re: worming my cats

We use stronghold...I would recommend. The downside is because my boy is 6kg, we have to apply 3 pipettes...it takes 2 of use and a large towel! :D

Re: What is the best Cat urine remover you have used?

As someone who virtually had to re mortgage her house, just to pay for all the urine remover (!!) I would recommend Lilliths suggestion of natures miracle...it is the best.

However, you need to find out the cause or you too will be remortgaging your house...I truly feel your pain xx

Thank you all. Oscar looked and sounded better by 1am, his leg and chest are still swollen though. I am just waiting for our vets to open to get him an appointment for today. I think he has a wound on his chest (maybe a bite / injury of some sort) but in fairness the vet could not get near to him......

Re: 3 year old peeing in house - tried everything!

Hi Wayne18, does Rosie want to go out? If so, I appreciate that it wouldn’t be right to let her out near a busy road, so it may be fairer to rehome her. My cat came from a home near me, and she was kept indoors because they lived on the roadside, but she kept escaping and coming to us. In the end t...

First, she seems to refuse to eat the red dry food, but eats the rest. Has anyone experienced anything like thi...

Thank you, everyone. Unfortunately we cannot let Rosie outside - too much traffic, etc. As far as I know there aren't any cats visiting in our neighborhood.

I feel your pain and I've been where you are. Sorry to repeat, however: Oscar, 6 year old rescue male, indoor cat who has never seen daylight…he started to pee the week after we got him. It turns out his previous owner got rid of him for this reason and they had him since a kitchen. We had ultra sou...

yes i have thought about doing that. the last litter she had was about 10 months ago. Several cat charities offer free spaying, ask your local RSPCA. In fairness and without trying to sound rude, 1 litter is an unfortunate mistake but 2 is cruel. Mating is not done after an evening at the theatre a...

I may be sticking my neck out here a bit, but I do dislike it when vets insist on particular mealtimes for cats. Cats by nature are browsers and nibblers, as are humans once they abandon the old notion of breakfast, lunch, supper - and no eating between meals! Suits me, and I'm a skinny minnie. At ...
