Re: Young cat now blind

I have had my girl Tips since she was 6 weeks old (we adopted her and her mummy and litter mates en masse!) She could certainly see when she first came to us. A few months later, she went through a brief period of being spooked. We assumed it was because we had friends staying. After that she settle...

Re: diabetic - help !

I would get started straight away too.

From what I understand, inirially the key is getting levels correct which can involve regular blood tests.

However, your vet is the best person to advise.

Can you find someone else to help when you are away if need be?

Re: Raw diet/non fish food

Henry has never been sick with his food before. We switched him to lily’s a while ago - all meat flavours. He had a spell of being sick after food. Noticed that he is not sick after some flavours - which are the ones without fish. In an ideal world all four would get the same food to make ordering a...

Raw diet/non fish food

My Henry is fish intolerant. He has been sick after eating meat flavour food. Looking through the ingredients there is fish or fish oils in many foods. I was considering a raw diet as a way of being sure no fish is included. I have a couple of questions - is anyone aware of food brands that are grai...

Re: Recent diagnosis of diabetes

Sarah's boy Edgar is diabetic.

I will ask her to post any advice she can give.

What I would say is that with support and treatment, there is no reason why your kitties shouldn't live a normal, healthy life. Edgar certainly does. :D

Re: My feral cats - further advice needed!

I would also be inclined to keep things as normal as you can. Providing the kitties can't bolt and escape into danger. As Alice says, try to keep the children calm when around the cats. Can you treat them to a visit to a local park to let off steam? The cats are likely to find a place where they fee...
