Re: Moving Home

I hope you can sort outside access as it takes a very hard person to be able to take a cats liberty away!! At 4 years old it will be a very tough transition if they have to be confined and one has to ask the question as you have if it is even right. The fact that you are asking the question to yours...

Re: Buying a cat from a breeder

Don't get me wrong, we have to protect certain breeds but at the moment in the current climate it would be nice to have a few years ban to help re home the rescues. I would love nothing more than be in a position to with a clear conscience go to a breeder and get the breed I want but in all moral co...

Re: Buying a cat from a breeder

Of cause we are all entitled to our own opinions and mine is that as perviously stated it is morally wrong to pay for a cat when so many die because they can't find a home purely because it isn't the right colour or doesn't look how we want or have some trait. REAL and TRUE cat lovers don't care abo...

Re: Buying a cat from a breeder

I had people try and make me feel guilty because I didnt rescue a cat but at the end of the day I didnt put those cats there. If they do not fit my lifestyle then I should not be obliged to take one on just because some people cant be bothered to keep their cats or get them spayed or neutered. Blim...

Although it is everything that I'm opposed to and feel that you have to be morally very compromised and a lover of a breed not a true cat lover to go to a breeder during these times of crisis when 1000's of moggies are destroyed every year I think you have a very valid point in trying to educate peo...

Re: new FIV owner & Gingivitis

I think it rather irresponsible of a vet to make such a diagnosis without a conclusive test to be honest!! Get here tested for FIV is the 1st step. I regularly get youngsters in the rescues with horrific mouths and gums that require full extractions. We always test such cats as it is a symptom of FI...

Re: Help!

The weight loss is certainly a concern and one would have thought that if she was being fed elsewhere she wouldn't be loosing weight.

Personally, if she was mine I'd want a vets opinion as there is certainly a reason for her behaviour and physical condition that needs getting to the bottom of.

Re: Blind kitten

Blindness in kittens is pretty uncommon and is usually a symptom of something else. Older cats become blind for many reasons. A blind kitten should be as feisty and active as seeing kittens as their other senses can more than compensate so I would suggest this is possibly a more serious issue from t...

Re: Should a one eyed cat be kept indoors?

Eye sight is very much a secondary sense to hearing in a cats arsenal against danger so there is no reason at all a one eyed cat cannot continue an active outside life. If you restrict his lifestyle now he will have no idea why as he doesn't rationalise one eye with a handicap like we do so its almo...

Re: Advice please re feral kittens

At 7 weeks old if aged correctly you are in a very small window of opertunity to socialise them and earn their trust so the more you can handle them the better. I would put them initially in a large dog crate so you have easy and regular access to them without having to chase them around a room. Not...

Please rescue instead of lining the pockets of a breeder.

Re: Thinking about getting a cat, need advice!

There is no issue with cats being indoor cats if that is the life they choose.

Even the deaf and blind cats we get are homed to homes with enclosed cat proofed gardens. ...

No advise on getting rid as I think salt is a disgusting way to deal with slugs but if Denzel is playing with slugs please make sure he is wormed with Milbemax as slugs and snails are the primary carrier of lung worm which can be fatal and Milbemax is the most effective defence.

Yes and FIV+ cats CAN have normal outside access if they are not aggressive and not fighters.
