Loving your boy's name - sounds so appropriate!
I'm sorry I have no useful information to offer - just enjoyed reading your threads!
Good luck with your future ventures.

Re: Tonight's The Night....

Good luck from E&G. Rescue remedy is brilliant ..... Few drops on top of Denver's head between his ears might help to keep him calm. Helen, Some drops on your tongue wouldn't hurt you either. I use Rescue Remedy most days for Georgie and for me when I'm stressed at work.
Safe journey!

Shelly. Please pass on my condolences to Kate for the sad loss of Maxine.

Hi What a lovely forever home Dave is going to have. I'm a true believer in the 'higher authority' and Dave did come to you at the right time. I feel that cats are very spiritual and I know for sure Eric and George pick up on my moods. When I'm in my dark place, they just touch my soul with their sw...

Kitties mom. Exactly the same thing happened to me but not in my Ugg boots...they were my very staid Clarkes suede boots. Went to put them on one morning and thought perhaps the suede had got wet the last time I'd worn them as the boots stunk. Didn't think of looking in the boot ;) Put them outside ...

Re: Cat scratching himself until he bleeds

Vet phoned back at 3. She'd been through Georgie's notes and said that she really does think he's allergic to something in the garden and told me to buy Piriton not a genetic anti histamine. The only other thing I've wondered about but forgot to ask the vet is that we've changed their dry food to Sc...

I've just added a picture although it's not that clear, of where he's drawn blood around his eye. We've tried cortisone cream and tea tree cream but...

Re: My cat proofing is not KITTEN PROOF

Just bought another bottle of Rescue Remedy, anti-histamine and tea-tree paste all for Georgie, all on the advice of the vet and the lovely lady at PAH. Anti-histamine is because Georgie scratches all the time and keeps cutting around his eye. The vet said he might be allergic to something in the ga...
