Re: Cats are not designed for skydiving

After any fall, especially one like what you discribed I'd be taking my cats to the vets. Cats are very good at hiding pain and injury so it is better to be safe than sorry

Re: My Ragdoll x Russian Blue

hunnybunny I just have to say this is not a competition about what is cutest - pedigrees or mogs whether bought or rescued - they are ALL beautiful. Absolutely no need to behave in such a way on someone elses thread.

Sorry to OP.

Re: [Midlothian] Considering a rescue - what do you think?

I live pretty near to Dalkeith - near Cameron Toll! Yes! I'm not sure yet how I feel a lot it though, would be awfully stressful for the cats but the one in London seems to be doing it very well as they are by appointment only.

Comet has cut on his paw pad

We realised yesterday hat Comet had a laceration on his right front paw pad - it looks like it may have been cause by a rough bit of wood on our door frames (I am guessing). He is walking fine on it but we found fresh droplets of blood on the floor this morning, I've checked both cats over thoroughl...

Re: Milla is way too hyper, like extremely hyper

panting is extremely normal - absolutely nothing to worry about and my scruffing her when she is doing this you are just setting yourself up for a cat that will not trust you being anywhere near her.

Re: Need Help

Can a family member or a friend not take them in for you while you get your situation sorted? Even advertising for a temporary foster carer to look after them would be better than giving them away.

Re: New cat not drinking

We give her half and half; she gets a pouch of wet food in 2 servings, and we keep a small amount of dry food in another bowl in case she's hungry at night or while we're out. We got her 9 days ago from a sanctuary where she was the smallest, shyest cat in her run, and she was originally taken away...

Hey! Does Molly eat wet or dry food? :) if it's wet I wouldn't be worried about her not drinking much as the majority of their water comes from their food but if she gets dry even if it is along side wet food I'd be a little bit worried - maybe you could increase her wet food while decreasing dry (t...

Males are generally bigger and grow more than females. If your vet is happy with their progress then that is all that matters.
