Re: My cat won't eat cat biscuits

My older cat eats a lot of mice and I hear him crunching the bones, so maybe my little one will do the same but I will get a raw chicken wing and see how he gets on with that.
Thanks

Re: cat really struggling with body splint - help please!

It's the worse thing ever to see your cat in such a state, I agree I would call the vets and see if they can make so sort of adjustment, but at this point you have to be cruel to be kind while they are healing. Put lots of padding in the cage as the other person suggested so there is little room for...

Re: Vomiting 5.5 Month Old Kitten

Sounds like a visit to the vets is in order. If you have a syringe keep giving the cat water down the throat to try and hydrate them. Maybe try a small bit of scrambled egg? But definitely get an emergency appt I'm sure there will be a vet open on a Sunday somewhere near you, pets at home have a vet...

Has anyone heard before ...

Cat trackers

Does anyone have any experience of using cat trackers, I have read up on a couple and they have very mixed reviews and I wondered if anyone has tried them?
