Choosing the Right Cat > Why Do People Go To Breeders?

I forgot to add...

A few weeks ago, I adopted a new cat from rescue, he was four years old. As often happens, I let him into my heart and fell in love with him immediately! A few days later, I found out that he has a heart murmur, severe stomatitis, and renal failure....all three of which are most likely genetic.

After the crushing expense and heartbreak of that week, I did NOT want to gamble my heart on another cat with an unknown background. I DID, and I love the cat I wound up adopting, but I can definitely understand someone wanting to protect themselves from such a terrible experience by finding a kitty with a health guarantee and a solid genetic background.

I don't like the implication that people who seek out a breeder cat don't care. LOTS of caring, loving pet owners have well-bred animals. As long as someone loves and cares for their kitties, I don't care if the went the rescue route or the breeder route.

I for one am done gambling with dogs...I've dealt with so many issues of health and temperament in the dogs I've adopted...I'm experienced enough to handle these problems, but I don't want to. For my next dog I'm seeking out an excellent breeder who will have a dog for me who will most likely fit in beautifully.

When I worked as a vet tech, i learned that a LOT of vets have a policy of euthanizing cats that test positive, period. It wouldn't hurt to call around and find out of another vet in your area knows more about FeLV and would be willing to talk with you about his bloodwork and prognosis.

My advice would be to wait, and to have him re-tested in three months' time.

Some cats can fight it off, and become immune. Others become carriers. Others succumb to the disease. Since you don't have any other cats that might become affected, I would offer him a chance to fight it off.

FeLV is a complicated disease, and a LOT of factors can affect his prognosis, so I'd say do some research and follow your heart. Good luck to you and your little kitty both. frown

Yep, it's common. She may outgrow it, she may not. Kyubey still nurses on the sleeve of my bathrobe sometimes!

Cats and a Clean Home > nervous about house developing "cat smell"

Ya know....I'm not nearly as tidy as I should be, and we still manage to keep our home odor free with high-quality unscented litter and frequent scooping. We live with my VERY sensitive mother in law who would tell me in a heartbeat if there was a pet smell to the house!

I pay a little more for the Dr. Elsey's Ultra Scoopable litter than I might for another brand, but it's so perfect for us that it's totally worth it!

Sounds like normal kitten silliness to me! Enjoy the sideways crabwalk while she still does it, because they outgrow it pretty quickly!

She may have too much space right now. Sometimes when they're quite small, kittens don't make it back to the litterbox if they have too much space available. IF she currently has the run of the house, I'd restrict her to one room with a litterbox for a few days, then slowly expand her territory out.

You can also add more litterboxes so that it's easy for her to find one if she has to go in a pinch, and 'kitten attract' litter is not a miracle fix, but it very helpful in building good box habits. smile
