Re: Vet prescriptions

As I said it's for Stronghold and if it hasn't killed my cats after 15 years I doubt it's going to start now.

Re: Building a home for ferals

That's a great thing you are doing for these cats and thankfully you have time on your side now to look for new shelter for them before winter, I would start by looking on your local freecycle site and fb freecycle and selling sites and put the feelers out for a good condition shed that someone mayb...

Vet prescriptions

Does anyone know if you can re use them? I uploaded mine Into PC and company never asked for original, so I still have it. It was for stronghold. So I'm wondering if there is any reason next month I can't use same script for another pack from a different company?

My youngest had all of those symptoms plus reflux and wind and colic and they were all caused by milk allergy/ intolerance.

Re: Metronidazole

Yes it does have really good results for mouths and ongoing diarhoea problems, as you say it can be quite difficult to administer tho as it is very bitter tasting. That and antirobe have had the best results for mine with ongoing gingivitis problems.

Re: Rescues- spay opinion please!!!

Ah I see so it's the presence of ovaries that causes a season.....
I have since been googling it and it seems it's a more common thing in torties to be born without a uterus, and she is a tortie.

Re: Spayed cat on heat

Mmm it's a tricky one, I have a mum rearing kittens in my rescue now and she came Into season last week for 3 days, it was very obvious she was in season, so if she is having a season, and there doubt over the spay it's possible she wasn't done I guess, hopefully the shave will shed some light on it.

Re: Spayed cat on heat

Was there no difference in fur length on her left flank when you first adopted her? Normally when 2 months post spay, ESP when shedding winter cost you would still see the difference in fur length.

Re: Mother Cat Stalking Her Kitten - Separation Anxiety?

If the kitten is 8 weeks and independant the mummy will miss her for a while, and obviously knows she is at yours so will probably keep visiting for a week or two, but cats memories of their kittens do fade fast and chances are she won't like her kitten at all in a few weeks time and will see her as...

Re: Mother Cat Stalking Her Kitten - Separation Anxiety?

Bless her she can just see her kitten and understandably wants her back, you said they were born mid march, now is mid April which suggests they may have been too young to leave their mummy? His old is the kitten?

Re: Milk?

The lactose in milk can upset their tummies, but if no problems in 10 years of having it then more than likely tolerates it well. Goats milk or cat milk are both good alternatives though.
