Re: Its too COLD Daddy!

Well, Lilith, there was a time, nearly 8 years ago now, when snow up to their tummies stopped Badger and Tilly going out. It wasn't that they didn't want to go (indeed they were impatient to get out) but all the water they had dumped on the cat flap from their belly fur when they came in the night ...

Re: Cat won’t eat special diet.

Our tap water smells like a swimming pool, so it's no wonder the cats won't drink it. We invested in a ceramic water filter and everyone is happy now. Although they all like pond water too! The chicken broth sounds a good idea. I got a whole load of chicken thighs to make a curry tonight. I put two ...

Re: 12 days in and still tormented

There is nothing much I can add to what has already been said. I know there are many of us who have come so close to having to make that decision. A few weeks back, when little Freddie broke his leg, I know that it could have been so much worse and the thought of that makes me feel sick. The 'what i...

Hello, and welcome to CC. Sorry I have only just seen your post, I've not been around much lately. First of all thank you so much for taking in an FIV+ cat. They are so often rejected. My boy Bob is FIV+. We found him as a kitten and did not find out his status for over a year. He eats the same as m...

Re: It never rains, but it pours!

Sorry I have not been here for a while. Just a quick report back. The vet was very pleased with Bob's progress and have said to bring him in for a quick consult next week. All being well, that should be the final one.

Thanks for your support and kind thoughts.

Re: Frontline Alert!

We find the front line spray very effective and instead of spraying directly on the cat you can wear rubber gloves spray it on your hands and rub it all through their fur it reduces the stress of having to hold onto them and spray them and you don't get the skin reaction of so many spot on treatmen...

It may be the Frontline itself? I have had problems with it before. But I can't think that the patch on Purdy's neck could be anything else. I wonder if there has been a formula change? Need to know for next time.

Frontline Alert!

Just thought I'd pass this on. When we were last at the vets with Bobby, we mentioned the sore that Purdy had on her neck. The vet told us there was a lot of fake Frontline out there - even in some shops, not just online. I must tell Pets at Home they may have had other reports.

Bob should be at the vets now, but the little beggar has escaped and gone AWOL! Been searching everywhere. Positive homecoming vibes pleased. Quick tea break then out again.

Little beggar strolled in at 4.50, too late for the vets!! He's going tomorrow AM.
