Depression in Old Cat After 1st Vet Visit in Years by ---MIKE---
Violet wrote: I spent all day yesterday reading archives about older cats, allergies to cats, what to do when your cat is literally making you ill. There are medications (some over the counter such as Sudafed and some prescription) that will control your allergy.

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')

Amber's "boo boo" by ---MIKE---
I finally took Amber to the vet for the bald spot on her left side. It would start to heal and then she would lick it raw again. The vet took a smear and looked at it under the microscope. He said it was an auto-immune problem and gave her a cortisone shot. He said that it should clear it up in...

Tiger has changed by ---MIKE---
Tiger used to like to lay on his back with his feet splayed out. Since he was shaved (three weeks ago) he has not done this at all. Maybe he was doing this in an effort to cool off (he did it in the winter too) and now with all the fur removed he doesn't need to. I miss seeing him do that. ...

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...

Tiger's rabies shot by ---MIKE---
When Tiger got his rabies shot on 7/10/06 he was about three weeks overdue because of the vet not being able to fit him in sooner. He had the MRAD-3 vaccine which SHOULD be good for three years but the vet's office claims that the law says he must be re-vaccinated in one year because he was...

Silent clippers by ---MIKE---
I would like to be able to trim Tiger's butt hair. Unfortunately, the sound of the clippers frightens him and makes the job impossible. Is there such a thing as a silent clipper? As it is now, I have to take him to the vet who tranquilizes him to do it. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of...

Fishers by ---MIKE---
When discussing the dangers to outside cats, fishers have been mentioned as a dangerous predator. I know they are found in my locality. This year's issue of the Old Farmer's Almanac has an article about them complete with a picture. ---MIKE--- In the White Mountains of New Hampshire (44...

Least expensive feliway? by ---MIKE---
Gail F wrote: www.drsfostersmith.com sells it for about $16 + shipping. That's compared to $25 or more at my local pet store. Yes but their outrageous shipping cost would bring it up to $25 anyway. ---MIKE---

I think Peewee may have cancer... by -L.
I have an appointment for them on Friday - the soonest I could get in. His chest seems to have a large, hard mass in it. I do an exam every month when I trim nails - didn't feel this last month. I am hoping I am wrong, but I don't think I am. Will keep you updated. :*( -L.

Peewee isn't doing so great. by -L.
Just thought I'd post since so many of you have known me and my cats for so many years. Peewee has CRF and possible lymphoma and isn't doing very well. I suspect it will be days, or weeks, at most. We are giving pallative care, and I keep hoping he will pass in the night so that I don't have to...

Friday is the day by -L.
The vet is going to come to the house and help Peewee cross over. He's weak, skin and bones, and suffering - it's time. He still has some quality of life, will purr when I hold him or scratch his head, and still likes to go out with the dog, but isn't eating much and is weak. I can't let him...

God this is aggravating... by -L.
Every year I completely replace my litter pans - just toss out the old ones and start fresh. Last night I went out and plunked down $8.99 each for two "Giant" Van Ness litter pans. I hired a babysitter and spent two and a half hours today cleaning the pet area - replacing all the bedding,...

cat peeing outside the litter box - solution by -L.
My cat Mimi has stuck her butt outside the litter box and peed off and on for a couple of years. I have had her urine checked multiple times, and it's always negative. So since Peewee died, she has peed outside the litter boxes every day!! I figured they must still smell like him to some degree,...
