Re: Bobby's Home!

Thanks for your interest Sarah. I took him to the vets today to get his dressing changed. John, the vet, is very pleased with his progress and doesn't want to see him again until Thurs. Bobby himself is still not his usual bouncy self, but he is getting there. It is lovely here right now so I might ...

Re: How do I cope with losing pets - long read, I need hep :

I'm back! The vet is very pleased with Bobby's progress, hurrah! You say you are having difficulty finding a sympathetic (and competent) vet. Our local vet is a very nice man. But he is a farm vet - most of his clients moo! We went online to look for another vet and found a brilliant one just over t...

Re: How do I cope with losing pets - long read, I need hep :

Dear Joe, I've just read what 'Jacks' said and I couldn't have put it better myself. I am in a bit of a rush this morning - I have to take my boy to the vets to have his dressings changed. I was completely shattered at the news last week that, on top of his other problems he is FIV+. That's the reas...

Re: Sebastian :(

I am so sorry to hear your sad news. It's one thing to lose a pet after a long and happy life - you can accept that. But when it is so sudden it really hurts doesn't it? It will take time and there will always be the sadness of loss at the memory. But in time you will remember all the happy times to...

Re: cat urinating in various places indoors, never did befor

Sorry to hear you are having problems. I know how frustrating this problem can be - no one wants to live in a house ponging of kitty pee! I think Sarah is right, all may seem well to you, but perhaps he has picked up on something. Has his relationship with your other cat changed? Is he an in-door ca...

Re: Bobby's Home!

Thanks KittyWitty,
I tried that but the file is too big! I'll try again tomorrow.
Bob is still a little wobbly - Wobbly Bob - mmm. But he is eating ok and has been hopping around. Something tells me I am going to have a job keeping him in and clean!
Thanks for asking after him.

Re: Dilemma - Advice needed

Hope all goes well for you and Whisky. My first cat was only about a week old when a neighbour's dog dropped 'it' in front of my car as I was driving into town. Not sure if it was male or female, we called it 'Willow'. As the local (farm) vet seemed to know less about cats than me. I turned to a fri...

Bobby's Home!

Just brought our little man home. He was quiet all the way until we reached the gates. Then he sat up in his box and purred like a little engine. Tommy and Purdy haven't seen him yet. Willow sniffed him up and down and Gracie did her usual trick of being affronted by his presence (she's such a drama...

Re: Should a one eyed cat be kept indoors?

Just seen your post. It all depends on how safe your garden is. When she was 10 months old, one of our cats, Purdy, got into a fight with a very nasty stray. We heard the fight and a short while later she appeared in a terrible state. She lost the sight in on eye and had to have her jaw wired. When ...

Bobby

Just heard from the Vets. Bobby is doing very well - a little wobbly - but making good progress. He may be able to come home tomorrow. He must be feeling better, he is eating everything they put in front of him!

Hello!

Hello Folks, I'm new to Cat Chat. Recently discovered my sweet boy Bobby is FIV+. It was quite a shock - with all his other problems - poor little man. I have 4 other cats - all strays who somehow found their way to us. They all have their stories, but Bobby is the reason I joined. It will be good t...
