Re: cat words

Mine certainly know many different words. Even when saying something in conversation to someone else that sounds like one of 'their' words they look up. An example would be 'dreaming' which sounds like 'dreamies', or 'cheeky' which sounds like cheekin (chicken). These words can take on a different m...

Re: Thinking about getting a cat, need advice!

I have a cat-proofed garden (allegedly!), where they can safely play and wander, and also let them out beyond when it's light (if dark I have to go out with them and monitor them). They seem to accept the times they can go out beyond the garden, and seem happy with that.

Yes, for heaven's sake give her a chance. What have the vets said specifically?

Re: Outdoor fun

I created a cat watchtower last year from some old steps, a pallet and a fence post. http://s917.photobucket.com/user/Ocelot999/media/Kits/20130808_202928.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0#/user/Ocelot999/media/Kits/20130808_202928.jpg.html?sort=3&o=0&_suid=139845202508802516515037886293" onclick...

Re: TRY AGAIN FOR ADVICE !!!

I tend to go out with my lot when they venture beyond the garden, especially when it's getting dark. I have had Loc8tor tags on collars in the past so you can track them if they're hiding.

Re: Can anyone help me with my cats sickness

Glad she's back and feeling better.

I suppose it could have been antifreeze. Do you have any lillies in your garden?

Re: Lethargy after vaccination

Thanks all. He definitely gave her a wormer pill, and advocate on her neck. I thought it was all a bit much for one day. Anyway, she slept for about 5 hours, then got up, ate loads of food and started wandering. This morning she seems more or less normal, eating etc. It's strange, none of them have ...

Lethargy after vaccination

I took Coco for her annual vaccinations today, with flea treatment (advocate) and a wormer pill. She was ok when I got her back and had some more food, but over the last couple of hours she has been very lethargic, and has been sleeping, not wanting her dinner (very unusual) for her. I spoke to the ...

Re: cats and TB

I also hate the way the Daily Fail tries to whip up hatred. Their normal targets are sharks, foxes and false widow spiders, but often dip into attacking cats and dogs (and, of course, immigrants, the EU, the Labour party, people on benefits and the poor!). A vet on the radio said you had more chance...
