Re: Lethargic cat

Thanks for the replies. I took her back to the vet at 5. She was lying in a flower bed at the bottom of the garden (after I had been searching for her for over half an hour), so she seemed to have found somewhere to settle without being too uncomfortable. They checked her over again, and I showed th...

Lethargic cat

Hi I got in this morning and noticed one of my cats wasn't right. She is very lethargic and is off her food. Earlier she tried to go to the toilet but nothing came out. She has spent the day wandering around the house meowing occasionally and feeling sorry for herself, trying to find somewhere comfo...

Re: I think Milla is trying to kill one of the kittens

I'd keep an eye on them, but usually the mother will reject a kitten much earlier than that (before their eyes have opened) and only if she doesn't think the kitten will survive. If she's prepared to let it feed and it does this ok, you are probably ok.

I've never had any people come knocking at Halloween. I think they think it's that weird cat man, let's not go anywhere near his house.

Re: Molly hates the change in weather!

We still haven't had a frost here in Surrey yet. The Aloe Veras are still outside, as are all the other tenders. The cats don't like the rain though, and sit on the bay window under the bay roof in the hope it will stop.

Re: Blindness

My family had a cat who developed 2 detached retinas. She managed ok, although it was obviously traumatic for her. I also met a dog at a similar time who had suffered the same, and he seemed ok - going for walks, running around, sniffing etc.

Mine are scared of bubbles! They love laser pens, though. You can get laser machines that do it themselves in random patterns so you don't have to stand there.

Lol. If you do a search for 'valerian cats' you get many hits. It has a similar effect to catnip, and smells like carrot a bit.

When I go back this morning I noticed Tango chewing on a stringy leaf.

She seems ok, has been checked by the vets, who told me to watch her for 24 hours fo...

Re: Anyone tried PAH catnip bubbles?

My cats (and my neighbours' cats) love catnip, but only the actual plant. It's quite easy to grow and is a hardy perennial. I have it all around the garden, along with valerian (the root of which they love too).

Re: Cat litter box ideas.

My cat trays (bog standard litter) are in the corner of the dining room, hidden by the door to the kitchen(when open). My sister put hers in the cupboard under the stairs, with a cut out in the door for access, so the trays are out of site, which I thought was a good idea.
