Re: Clingy cat

Hi there. Dora is an indoor girl and an only cat. There is just me & her at home. She is 6 years young and has been with me since she was 12 weeks old. Dora does exactly the same as Lottie! Admittedly not ALL the time but most of the time if I leave the room she follows me chattering away. If I go u...

Re: Feliway spray

Hi. I always use Feliway in Dora's carrier before we go anywhere and have 3 or 4 plug in Feliway units located around the house, and a spare refill in her drawer. These are only turned on if I know there's going to be a stressful situation I.e if I have work being done in the house or friends visiti...

In the last 3 to 4 months I've really worked hard to manage her Metacam intake over a period of time & she's now on 6th of a dose (re body weight) one day, nothing the next, so effective...
