Re: Panic

I've had cats sleeping the whole day after their jab and I have been convinced there is something wrong with them, but then it's worn off.

If it persists more than 24 hours I'd ask the vets.

Re: Cat Tracking Devices

I've only used the Loc8tor Plus, which works well, but I don't think they sell them any more. They still sell the Loc8tor Pet, though, which is cheaper.

Neither has GPS, and works up to 400 yards or so.

Good idea. We used to have fly screen on all doors when I lived in Australia. Should work with windows too.

Re: Advice please - getting a Siamese kitten soon

Well, she certainly sounds and acts like a Siamese, but her origins are uncertain, apart from her Moggy mother.

Her face gradually got darker but only on one side. Here are a couple of pics from when she was a few weeks old.

Glad he's ok. One of mine once jumped from the bedroom windowsill (which is a foot wide - I keep the window open at night during the summer).

Re: Advice please - getting a Siamese kitten soon

Mine were born in my back garden from a pregnant neighbours' cat, so I've had them from literally day1, so no really settling in needed, especially as I kept the kittens and the mother!

Re: Dave wont come in at night.

All mine have been doing that. As soon as it gets colder of wet he'll change his mind. I've taken to leaving the back door and side gate open and get joined about 1-3am with them purring and jumping on my bed.

Re: Advice please - getting a Siamese kitten soon

Why not get 2 so they will keep each other company during the day?

One of mine is half-siamese (pictured in my avatar) and she is demanding and affectionate, and also climbs me and rides around on my shoulder. She isn't overly concerned if I leave her.

They always seem to do it on soft furnishings - settees, curtains etc. They are all female too. My sisters cats do it too - she eve...

Re: Lethargic cat

She's almost her normal self now, although bit wary of me after 4 vet visits. She is climbing up and jumping down 7 foot high wooden fences onto concrete. I doubt she'd do that if she was in pain. It's taken a while but she seems to be improving each day (touch wood).

Re: Lethargic cat

Hi Alan

I hope yours gets better soon. Maybe she needs hydration (a drip feed) at the vets? That can make a lot of difference.

Mine is 5. She's running and climbing now, although not herself yet.

Hi Arralszemben - he's gorgeous (as are all kittens)!

It's unusual to have a kitten at 7 weeks, it's usually 8-10 weeks, but I had mine from day 1, as they were born in my garden, so I can't talk!

Re: Lethargic cat

Thanks both. They didn't think she needed a drip as she has been eating and drinking, but It'll be a job to give her all that medication.

The vet didn't think she was constipated as she felt around her stomach area. Maybe she has been going somewhere.

The humane mouse traps work well if you check them every few hours. By far the best thing is to put peanut butter on the lid. They don't seem to be interested in cheese.

She is definitely constipated as she strains and produces very little.

She ate this morning and a little this evening. ...

Re: She does make me laugh

Elevated white blood cells sounds like she's fighting something, but that's probably a good sign.

As your garden is cat-proofed, hopefully she'll be allowed to go out soon.
