Re: I wish people would learn...

I don't feel I can really interfere unless they do ask me to take a kitten. (Maybe they'll get lucky and their cat isn't pregnant after all - she's not bulging at the moment. But I wouldn't count on that.) But if they do get stuck with a litter, I thought maybe I could print them out an information...

Re: Kidney disease- when is it time?

Everything crossed you can get her to eat. Our vets will sometimes give you something to help with their appetite so it’s worth looking at all options. Do keep us updated.

Thank you for the welcome and for the reply. I am in the US, I haven’t tried other foods, just the treats.

Hi and welcome. So sorry that your little girl isn’t well. I’ve had a few oldies with CRF and it can be difficult to tell when the time is to say goodbye. If she’s not eating at the moment that won’t help, have you tried lots of different foods? You don’t say where you are from, if you’re in the UK ...

Hi and welcome. It’s great that you’re putting so much effort into getting a cat or two :) All cats are different but I think if you can afford to adopt two kittens together, then that would be a great idea. They will be company for each other and when you are in you will have a cat each! When we st...

Re: Poo or sick?

We did consider that. Is there normally a bit of sick with the furball? Makes sense i suppose. She is short-haired and groom her but can still visibly see loose fur after! Seems never-ending. Is there anything else we can do to help her prevent them? Yes there will likely be sick with it as well. I...
