Glad he is doing well, and I love his name. I remember you and Sprinkles too! Just a note - I would not give baby aspirin to him again. I know you meant well and were trying to relieve his pain, but check with your vet if this is a safe thing to do. I know that acetametaphine (Tylenol) is deadly for cats, but I am not sure about the aspirin. It sure seems that you will be happy to put this past year behind you. I send you hugs for your pain. Perhaps Gandalf the Grey was sent to you by your loved ones, (human & kitty alike) to help heal your heart. Here's to a fresh year with your new kitty! hug

Get a kitty from a shelter - you save 2 lives. The kitty you rescue & the kitty that the shelter will have room for. I would research and think it through before you bring a cat home. They are very different than dogs. If they have a scratch post, they use that- please don't declaw. Potty box, if kept clean 1-2 times per day should not smell. Cats are funny, glorious little creatures, but they like routine, and need attention and play time too. I am not trying to sound mean - but if you are getting a puppy, maybe you should wait til your pup is settled before you bring a kitty home. If you do decide that you want one, a shelter will be able to help you find a cat that maybe has experience with dogs, and whose personality will fit your needs. I am not saying that you shouldn't get a kitty - just think it through. You might find it helpful to visit a shelter a few times & play with the residents. You would get a feel for them and maybe find your new pal. good luck! cheerwave

Behavior & Training > Any advice on keeping cats off of 'cat restricted' areas?

I usually will pick them up while saying "no table" etc and place them on the floor. This does not always work though. Maizy will give me a "whithering look" sometimes. My son tried the sticky tape for his cat, which he said worked alright as long as the kitty wasn't chewing the tape. You can also use a car matt the kind with little nubby teeth flipped teeth side out. They don't like the feel. SOme citrus peels on the counter can help to deter. They also have a cannister of compressed air that has a motion sensor & will spray air if the kitty triggers it. I think it is called Sssscaaat. Good luck, it is not easy to keep them off all the time, but with redirection and a nice place that they CAN go helps alot.wave

Cat Health > Brush my cat's teeth: Is cat toothpaste really necessary?

In my opinion even brushing with no toothpaste is better than not brushing at all. I sometimes use tooth wipes for cats, or a baby washcloth is good too.

I was just thinking the same thing Mouse. I hope it is that everyone is doing well. But just in case, here's some purrs purrpurrpurr
Stay warm, stay healthy & here's to hoping that the new year will bring an improved Catster to us all!

Health wise, the kitty quartet is doing well. This cold we are having does take a toll on Felix - he walks more slowly and awkwardly, but he still seems happy.

I just saw this now - I haven't been around too much lately. I hope that your kitty is doing ok. Tig has this, and takes atenolol 2 times a day, and is doing well. Not sure what med your kitty is on, but if it is making him not feel good, the vet should be able to prescribe something different to try. The labored breathing can be fluid, so it is important to keep contact with your vet. If you are not getting the support from them you need, then definitely try a different one. I question everything with Tig, and the vet will double check with his cardiologist if I ask her to. It is an awful disease, but can be managed. Some kitties do very well, and sadly others do not, but there is a ton of research going on now, to hopefully treat this better. Take care sweet kitty & family. hugwave

IS there a possibility of seeing another vet? It could be stress related, rubbing, could be overgrooming, could be other things too. Your vet should take your concerns seriously, and answer all your questions. I would be concerned too - especially if the skin is darker - what can cause that? I hope that things turn out ok for you. PLease post how you are.hugwave
