Re: Advocate and bad reaction

Hi while I’ve not experienced adverse effects of flea treatment & I’ve not used Advocate, I know others who’ve used it & they’ve experienced reactions including loss of fur where treatment was put on. Hope Dave’s feeling a lot better. Flea infestations are horrendous.

Re: For those who feed their cats Felix, has anyone noticed that their cats have stopped eating it?

I’ve been giving the Famous Five from Oz the beef, chicken & salmon as well as chicken & turkey. So far so good. Haven’t tried the Sensation Sauces. They get fresh meat & chicken necks at the weekend.

Re: Cat Sitter

I’ve left mine for a couple of days. Left extra litter trays, gave them a good dinner the night before, gave them breakfast as well as leaving extra dry food & water. Some people I know leave a radio on for company but as we have electrical storms I’m hesitant to do that.

Re: Cat vomited this morning and still not eating!!

Hi are you able to organise a payment plan with your vet. We have an organisation here Vetcare I think it’s like a credit plan but interest rates less than credit cards. Good news about Tiger & yes vets do cost but we do it for our fur babes. Vivian

Poor boy .. they get themselves into situations. Thankfully the vet found out what it was. I worry about smallish, stringy toys such as mice which can be chased & tossed around. Keep us updated on your fur babe. Vivian

Hi Mollycat no personality change. Mayday was a Tortie but not naughty unlike the Tuxedo terror, Harper, who I’m sure thinks her name is “Naughty Girl” :lol: And Mayday had the softest fur. Miss her to this very day. She definitely left paw prints on my heart. How’s Molly going?

Hi Chloe what a worry. Hope you get the cat flap sorted. In the meantime can you keep your fur babe inside. Strange that other cats can get in if it’s a chip reader. Don’t know anything about them. Can Cat Mate send someone to investigate? Keep us posted. Vivian
