I have the one alanc linked to. It does an amazing job and Alfie loved being groomed with it. He would purr so much and salivate.

Re: Cat has colon cancer - advice needed

Thank you for all the kind messages. Alfie would have been 11yrs old on the 8th of April. He died four days short of his birthday. I had to visit the in-laws with the kids over the Easter hols so didn't get a chance to fully grieve. When we came back on Sunday I felt the gaping hole in my heart. I h...

Re: Advocate, Frontline or Bob Martin??

Do you buy it directly from the vet or get it online with a prescription? Do the vets write out these prescriptions for you if you ask? I guess they lose out on some profit as the ones I’ve seen online are half the price if bought directly.

Re: first time kitten owner - totally blind

Best to keep kitten in one room first. Also at night time put it in a dog crate with its bed, food and litter tray. Kittens have really sharp teeth and can chew electric wires. I feel comfortable doing this as it's peace of mind. They have so much energy bouncing around. Enjoy your little one!

When would you introduce it to the current cat? After it has had all it's vaccinations?

I've never had insurance for the 3 cats that I have had so far. Two were strays an old cat and a young kitten. She went to the vet once to get spayed after she had her kittens and she's never been since (touch wood). We kept one of the kittens and he's the one I have spent the most on. He currently ...

Re: Pet insurance

When should you get it? Insure new kitty immediately? Or after it is neutered?

If you choose lifetime cover with an insurer, can you change to a different lifetime insurer when the year is up for a better quote? Or do you have to stay with them?

Vaccinations

Once your kitten has had their first two vaccinations and then the booster one at 12months. Do you continue to have the yearly booster ones that the vet recommends. This is for an outdoor cat.
