Cat Health > IBD cat no poop

Hi Wizard!cat on moon Felix has constipation, due to the fact he has nerve damage & severe hip displasia. It would hurt to push the poopie, so sometimes he would hold it & get blocked up. Now he takes Miralax. I take 1/2 teaspoon & mix a bit of water (about 1-1/2 teaspoons water) in his food bowl. In a minute it will turn clear, I then mix his wet food with it. He gets extra water this way & he likes his food a bit soupy anyways. I usually give him this twice a day, but if I see his poops getting soft, I cut back to once a day. What it does is pull water into the intestines & makes the poop softer & easy for them to go. It won't hurt if you have another cat & they eat some. It is tasteless. They do have store brands that are cheaper, but I use so little, I just went with the name brand small bottle.wave

Behavior & Training > Shy new cat~

Just give her some time. SHe has had some major changes, and now she has to get used to a new home and new person. Rather than trying to pick her up, sit in the same room with her. Try reading aloud or talking to her softly so she learns your voice. Toss some treats or food for her, or try a wand toy. It will take some time, especially if she is a shy girl, but curiosity will win out and she will start to explore & get to know you better. And thank you for saving a kitty! cheer

I use Pet Kiss - there is no alcohol or anything in it, goes in the water too. Whatever you use, look at the ingredients first. Pet kiss is glycerin & beet juice - nothing artificial. And for sure the bloodwork is needed. My vet won't do anything without that bloodwork no older than a week before the procedure.

Behavior & Training > I've scared my cat

Sometimes they can sense you being upset too. That can make them a bit skittish. I just got a carrier that has a door on the top, so all I do is open and can then place the kitty in there. It seemed to work well for Felix - he was not as afraid. cat on moon

Behavior & Training > How to read very shy new cat?

The more comfortable he gets, the more you will see him venture around. When he is looking at you, perhaps he is trying to get to know you better. Felix is very skittish, and it took months for him to feel relaxed. He is still a bit nervous, but I feel alot of his issues is due to chronic pain along with it. Try to play some classical music (if you like it) or something softer if you don't. Talk to him alot, or even read aloud when he is in the room with you. Just keep at it - the reward when they come to you is even more sweet, because of what they overcome. I think so anyways. wave

Cat Health > What cat insurance do you guys have?

Felix

I have PetPlan also. I have the wellness plan, with a $250 deductible per year. Really, when they have shots, bloodwork, etc, there is your deducible. Then anything else is paid at 80% (you can choose the %) I have been very happy with them. Felix had a knee surgery over $3500, and I ended up paying maybe about $600. Medicatin & flea/heartworm is covered too. I pay about $42 for TWO cats per month. SOme policies have a per incident deductible, so be sure to read well - mine is a PER YEAR. Seriously I wish I had had it for Tigger - with his heart disease now, no insurance will cover him, but it has paid off for Felix & SMitty's teeth problems. (it covers cleaning too!)

Chloe - I have a question regarding the Greenies. Felix tends to swallow his treats without chewing - will it work if he does not bite the treat?

Cat Health > Weird growth/ callus thing?

Felix gets these too. I had thought it was an actual nail & freaked when I first saw it! The vet called them horny growths, and basically, she just pulled it off. I think it is excess keratin that grows. I have a very hard time with Feefs nails - it takes 2 people to do his, but if there is some there, I just use my nail like the vet did & pop it off.
