Re: Purdy not well

Thanks both of you for your replies. I hadn't though about dosage. Purdy has always been slightly built and lately with the tooth problem she has not been finishing her meals. It must be extremely difficult to judge the amount of anaesthetic, too little and she is still awake, too much and it could ...

Purdy not well

Our old lady Purdy is not well. She has not been 100%for a while but we put it down to her age (14 next week) and the fact she has always been a slight, skinny cat. But her usual 'zip' has been missing a few weeks. Yesterday, as she had not had her breakfast and was looking very down, Dave took her ...

Re: For those who feed their cats Felix, has anyone noticed that their cats have stopped eating it?

Mine used to love AGAIL, but just recently seem to have gone off it, starting with the lamb and salmon varieties. Just lately they lick off the gravy/jelly and leave everything else.

Re: Cats and badgers

We are in a rural situation and would have the odd fox or badger about but oddly enough, not in the garden We DO have polecats/pine martins (or some such mix) that are causing havoc among our chicken owning neighbours and are probably responsible for the death our pet jackdaw a couple of years back....

I have just seen your post June. I have been so wrapped up in my own misery and grief I have forgotten that others are going through it too. I am so sorry for your loss. Perhaps your Spike will take my Freddie under his wing at the Bridge. He needs a big brother, he's only a little boy. :cry:

Very sad news I'm afraid. Heard from a friend who was telling her family about Fred.

I asked was it a long haired cat, the answer came back 'yes, with a bushy tail'. All I can t...

I hope you all have a much better start to the year than us - still no sign of Freddie. Over here in NI they have the right idea about fireworks. You have to purchase a licence to buy them. That puts off most people and stops kids buying them. It was very quiet here last night. Don't think I have se...

Re: Is my cat beautiful?

In all honesty, Rex cats are not amongst my favourites. However, your cat has the sweetest, most open expression (not scary, like my Willow, or grumpy, like Gracie) and the most stunningly beautiful eyes I have seen in a long while.

Yes - go for it, and good luck!

It is a lesson I learned early in life when the first cat my family had ended up with stomach cancer, which wasn't diagnosed until he had exploratory surgery.
