Re: Cat coat needs sorting

Follow up Q ... There is a lot of straggly hair ... messy. Never owned a long haired cat ... do I need something to trim and keep neat? Legs look like she is wearing feather leggings and white blaze on chest is about twice length of all other hair. Strangely. (It seems to me anyway) long hairs under...

Re: Cat coat needs sorting

When we went back to Vet to pick it up they said ... Rosy is ready.
I asked why that name and they said the vet has named her - so as good as any.

Re: Introducing new adult cat

The cats know each other are there - will keep it this way for another few days, then let them see each other and see what happens.

Re: Cat coat needs sorting

Cat been 'clipped' by Vet
Its a female, estimated 6-8 yrs old
Not chipped
In very good health ...... and so friendly and unstressed they were able to shave off the matting without anaesthetic.

Looks a bit of a mess at moment - but it will grow back.

Re: Cat coat needs sorting

using 'it' makes it sound like an inanimate object devoid of feelings not a living, breathing, feeling individual. I appreciate a cat lover might not like my view ... but It's a cat to me ...... I phoned vet today, they asked me to register ... what is cat's name - no idea what sex is it - no idea ...

Re: Cat coat needs sorting

No idea how old cat is .... It wandered into my parents house a few years ago and stayed. I have booked vets for tomorrow - hope this cat does not start costing me too much .... my sister had an alternate view, just lock it out of the parents house - it will soon wander off and adopt somewhere else....
