Ping Phil re Metacam by ---MIKE---
Amber has arthritis and my vet has recommended oral Metacam. I have read about cats dying from the use of Metacam. Do you have any opinions on this? ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N - Elevation 1580')

Persistence with mats by ---MIKE---
The past few years I have had to take Tiger to the vet to get "de-matted". This required sedation which was expensive as well as somewhat risky. This year I have tried to keep them under control. Despite my efforts, he developed mats on both sides of his hips. He won't let me use clippers or...

Tiger's mats are gone by ---MIKE---
After slowly breaking up the mats on Tiger's hips I have been very diligent about brushing (with the Zoom Groom) and combing several times a day. Luckily he likes this. So far there has been no signs of new mats. I really wanted to avoid a trip to TED for sedating and shaving like last year. ...

Quiet clippers by ---MIKE---
Does anyone sell grooming clippers that are truly quiet? Tiger has a couple of stubborn mats that would be easily removed with clippers if the loud noise didn't spook him. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N - Elevation 1580')

Living Hell by ---MIKE---
Philip Meech asked: If we were to upgrade to three litter boxes, would those be side by side or distributed around our small house? If you really want to solve the problem, you should have SIX litter boxes. I would try distributing them around the house. I have two cats and three litter...

Tiger's mat by ---MIKE---
Tiger has had a bad matting on his left hip for a couple of months. I have tried a mat breaker, combs, brushes etc. but Tiger used to object. With a wire bristle brush and persistance, I finally got the mat off this morning. Here is a picture of the brush that did the trick along with the...

Tiger likes the Zoom Groom by ---MIKE---
I have been grooming Tiger with the Zoom Groom for the last few weeks. He seems to like it. Hopefully, when his hair has fully grown back this will prevent mats. This could take a year or more. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N - Elevation...

Hissing Tiger by ---MIKE---
He was at the vet for "shaving" three weeks ago and had a complete blood check - all normal. His hissing is nothing new - he has always done that. It's just his personality! ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44 15' N - Elevation 1580')

OT Clean Shower problem by ---MIKE---
I have been using Clean Shower after taking a shower - using the one labelled "for tile showers". I find that I get choked up from the mist and have trouble breathing for a couple of hours. I never noticed this with the regular product. Has any one else had this problem? A call to the company led...

News group falling apart by ---MIKE---
This was once a healthy news group with 1500 posts. Because of the off topic posts and flame wars and the fact that a few individuals have made it their personal chat club, many of the regular posters have left for other cat news groups. This group is down below 1000 posts and dropping steadily. ...

Least expensive feliway? by ---MIKE---

Tiger's rabies shot by ---MIKE---
Wilber asked: Are there any other animals he comes into contact with? Some vets will advise that the rabies shots aren't necessary for an indoor cat who's the only animal in an apartment or house. There is another cat - Amber. She is 11 and also never goes out. I could leave the door...

Hissing Tiger by ---MIKE---
Tiger hisses at just about anything. When he gets up on my lap (which is often) he sometimes "nips" my arm. This afternoon, when he got up, I said "don't bite me" and he hissed (but he didn't nip). If I accidentally bump him with my leg, he hisses. I've given up trying to figure what he means by...
