Re: Going Outside - what age ?

Never let an un spayed cat outside even under supervision. If you don't want to keep her in then bring the spaying forwards.

Re: Need help finding a Cattery

Yes its the only cattery I will use or recommend for the rescue cats we rehome.

Go and have a look before you decide but its cats only, quite, safe and run by cat lovers not business people. They adopted 2 cats from my rescue 3 years ago and they will look after your cats very well.

Re: My Ragdoll x Russian Blue

Hmmmmm..... more experimental back street breeding I assume!!!

Cross two apparent pedigrees and you get a mog just like any other mob!!!!!!!

Absolutely sick of people crossing breeding to sell with no regard for the consequences.

Re: Chaotic Kitten

Single kittens usually get theses behavioural traits as they should learn most of the social skills of being a cat with a sibling not a human which is why young kittens should not be homed by themselves until at last 4 months old. See it all the time and is why so many kittens end up dumped because ...

Re: i know of cruelty case but not sure what to do

All kittens don't have worms at birth, they get them from mums that are not properly wormed (thats most of them) which is why fleaing and worming a pregnant cat is the most important thing you can do to give the kittens the best possible start.

There is absolutely no reason a neutered non aggressive healthy FIV positive cat should be indoor only. The likelihood of infection to another cat is almost nil.

Re: early neutering

I wasn't recommending a private owner at this age (12-16 weeks I believe is what I recommended) but as a rescue with a very proactive vet then 9 weeks is when all rescues should be neutering. No kitten should really be rehomed via a rescue un neutered as this is the only possible way to guarantee th...

Re: early neutering

There is no reason not to neuter early and every reason to.

This sounds terrible but as a rescue I have had many cats legs, front and back (not on the same cat I hasten to add) amputated and I'd do it at the drop of a hat over trying to reconstruct a shattered limb.

Oh no. FIP is a cruel disease.
