crycry It's just so sad to see a post like this! Now, there are lots of people trying to help, but it may be too late. These same people would have come forward if they only knew sooner.
confusedSome how, some way, no kill shelters and free spay and neuter services for every kitty (& dogs, too!)

Cat Health > Broken toe?


Food, glorious- food!
Purred: Sat Oct 6, '07 10:15am PST 
thinking Could be. Our Ling Ling caught a claw on the carpet and broke a bone in her paw. So, yep, probably best to go to the vet & make sure.
The extended claw could cause additional complications if not checked.

Cat Health > Clumping litter - sodium bentonite


Food, glorious- food!
Purred: Wed Sep 26, '07 11:35am PST 
Harley good research. Please let us know what you learn about Scoop Away! I looked and could not find if it had sodium bentonite.

We have used World's Best Cat Litter in the past- a corn product - which seems fine. It says it is digestable if eaten. Then we changed to Scoop Away - maybe we will change back!

Thanks for bringing this topic to our attention!applause

Cat Health > Flea medication


Food, glorious- food!
Purred: Fri Jun 22, '07 10:18pm PST 
thinking You look well loved by your humans - even in that silly blue sweater!

I had a very serious reaction to the Hartz brand flea control that is marketed to look like Advantage. The emergency vet who took care of me and wrote a nastygram to Hartz - said they are very different chemical approaches & Hartz is very risky to kitties!

My family has used Advantage without any problems....but, you have something else so scary going on....do you really need flea control indoors? Maybe you could wait? Sometimes my human skips it for quite a long time, because we have no evidence of the little critters. Then she gets religion and puts Advantage on all of us...especially if we are going to be exposed to other kits, like at the vet's.

Get well!! We'll be purring for you! hug

Cat Health > Am i too old?


Food, glorious- food!
Purred: Fri Jun 22, '07 9:21pm PST 
Hi Taz,
I agree with the other kits here, with good blood work and a good feline dentist - your overall health will benefit from a healthy mouth. There is increased risk to your heart & kidneys from the bacteria associated with poor dental hygiene.
The sedation is very light compared to what it was just 10 years ago. The blood work will let the vet know if your kidney or liver function put you at risk. From there, the right sedation can be selected and managed.
Yes, I am only 4 (next month actually), but I have had to have extractions - just a congenital abnormality that caused me to have oral problems. Not really so unusual, just bumb choppers. Science Diet Prescription "T/D" kibble from the vet, has been a Godsend! It really works to reduce gingivitis and tartar.
By the way, I am a spitty kitty, too. I just had my teeth cleaned this week. It's an annual event for every kitty in our house. $$$, but our human says it is good for us in the short & long run. If you need root canals, you are headed for TROUBLE if you wait.
You are not too old for a healthy mouth! big grinwink
Wishing you all the best!!smile

Food & Nutrition > How do I switch from free feeding to controlled feedings?


Food, glorious- food!
Purred: Thu Jun 21, '07 9:23am PST 
Wow, that's some good advice! I too, have become a bit plump & my human is dreading trying to transition all 3 of us from free feeding to scheduled times. She thinks she's dreading it??? Trust me, we all like to "graze" especially at night. Using one (or more!) of those automated feeders sounds like it might take the edge off.way to go

Thanks kits!
