Re: Peeing again!!!

You've actually answered the question you are asking yourself. He pees when you go out after work or when he's left for long periods of time, as he did at his last home. He's telling you he's frustrated and bored. Cats can't tell us when there's a problems so they show us with inappropriate peeing o...

Re: Black male not neutered, E7 London

Hi,
If you're close to Celia hammond animal trust pop this furry into there and get him checked for a chip.
If you don't have a basket I'm sure they could lend you one to get him there.
Well done for looking after him x

Re: BSH Breeder in South East

Re: Any advice cats fouling on our beds

It does sound as if your poor cat is very stressed out indeed. They can't tell us that there is a problem so they show us by living inappropriate "gifts". You do need to thoroughly clean all the tainted areas but DO NOT use bleach. Bleach is ammonia and to a cat it smells like a big unneutered Tom c...

Re: New kitten

Getting a kitten after such a long time will be a shock to the system ( in a good way). Kittens upto the age of 6 months need worming monthly, something like kitten milpro is what I recommend. Flea treatment can be every other month until kitty starts to go outside. I find kitten stronghold which yo...

Re: male or female

This is definitely a neutered male.
Female openings are closer together and the vagina resembles a T shape.
From the colouring I can see in the photo he also looks tabby not calico.

Re: best litter

How old are the kittens? Up to about 6 months kittens can eat pieces of cat litter, because of this the best litter is the woodchip pellet type. It's the only litter that if you do get a nibbler when it hits their digestive system it turns to powder and they can just pass it out. No chance of nasty ...

Re: Carmarthen - Black & White cat

If the cat is really friendly, which it seems it is, could you get it to a vets to be scanned for a microchip.
Vets will do this free of charge, and if chipped the cat can be returned to its owner.
