Food & Nutrition > Anyone else struggle with Pica?
Louis

"Louie", it's- French!

Louis's middle name is "Kitten Pica". He will chew on and eat ANYTHING that is left on the floor or within his reach. Luckily he doesn't jump on anything but the big cat tree in the computer room, so it's not too difficult to keep things where he won't eat them. He used to have a red toy octopus, but now it is more of a red lump since he ate all of the legs.

Kitten Corner > Found very young kitten outside. BITES!

We had to put my baby, Cubby, down last Saturday because they found cancer in her colon while trying to fix an anal prolapse. My fiance and I still cry every day and our home will never be the same without her.

Just a few days after losing Cubby we were going out to the grocery store and heard a squeek from under my car. It was a little baby kitten. I took her to the vet the next day and she estimated the kitten was between 4 and 5 weeks old. She is being kept apart from our other guys until she weighs enough to get dewormed and get her booboo earmites treated. Poor little girl.

ANYWAY! For the first few nights she snuggled me and purred like a motorboat. After she started figuring out how to run and go crazy, however, all she wants to do is bite. I've never had a kitten this young, so I've been assuming she will grow out of it. We still love her and we're not going to get rid of her for biting or anything.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there was a way we could teach her that biting is not acceptable, or if it's just something they do at her age and she will eventually stop?

I just wanted to let everyone know that Cubby's eye seems to have cleared up completely on it's own. We are still taking her to see the vet tomorrow, just to be sure.

DeeJay, the picture looks far more severe than what Cubby has, but the bleeding in the eye or whatever looks kind of like that.

We're going to see what we can do about it, but tomorrow being Christmas Eve we doubt we can get her out to see anyone. I wish the ER vet made it sound more serious. I feel like I made it worse by not finding someone to help me get her to the ER vet today. frown

The ER vet called me and said it sounds like Cubby will be fine until Tuesday (when our real vet reopens after holiday). She is concerned considering Cubby has had problems with this eye before and one of her littermates is blind in one eye, but she assured me that she will be okay. I'm not sure if this makes me feel better or not, considering that she didn't see Cubby (just heard me explain what her eye looks like and that she's acting normal).

I took a picture of her, but I had to lighten it (I couldn't use flash because I needed her eye open). Now that I got that picture I can safely say it hasn't spread since we first noticed it. It must've been the lighting in the kitchen.

Thank you Hunter. I would take her to the ER right away but I don't drive, and her daddy just left for work and his phone isn't on. frown

Hopefully I can reach someone soon who could give us a ride.

Yesterday morning my boyfriend noticed that Cubby's eye was kind of cloudy on the bottom half, but it was a burnt orange bloody colored cloudy. She is acting normal and she doesn't care if we touch her face near the eye, so we figured it wasn't a big deal. We called the vet anyway but no one is open this weekend because of the holidays. Just now, I looked at her eye again and it looks like the cloudiness is spreading in her eye.

Does anyone know what this could be? I left a messege at an emergency vet but they haven't called me back yet. I'm really worried about her. frown

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > TEENY kittens living under a dumpster...What do I do?

It's raining very hard here today, so all of the babies have been hiding and we haven't been able to catch any of them. We're going to try again tomorrow.

As far as the "hunting bait" goes, I'm assuming he ment for bigger animals like bear or something. We live very very close to some extremely woody areas where people can get permits to hunt bear and the like. I dont see why they'd want to eat a kitten, but some people are just sick. I just hope we can get them first. I saw a trap out there today and I'm pretty sure that guy put it there...so we took it.

I have gotten a few catmails from others who want to help, but nothing has panned out yet. No shelters are willing to help us at all so it's looking like it's all on me.

I'll update you all on this tomorrow. I'm sure we will be able to help at least some of these kittens, hopefully all.

Thanks for the suggestions and advice, everyone. One of the kittens got ran over earlier today, but we have seen quite a few others that we can (hopefully) still help. I overheard a man who lives in another building in my apartment complex say he's going to try to catch them so his brother can use them for "hunting bait".

We're going to try our best to help them out or get someone out here who can. I called the MSPCA in Springfield, and the number doesn't work. I called a place in Worcester, too, and the lady there told me to contact our town's dog officer via the police, which I did. No one picked up at the number as there was some weird machine saying they screen calls *eyeroll*.

I will be sure to keep you all updated on these little furbabies.
