Posts by Ritz

Welcome to The Cat Site. And, thank you for caring. There are several current/recent threads that address this issue, including this one. The rule of thumb (paw?) is: if the cat can put some weight on the paw, it probably is not broken. It could be a simple sprain, pulled muscle, in which case only time will heal that. It is possible there is some kind of wound/absess on the leg which causes the cat to limp. I don't know what the different clues might be; certainly,...
Welcome to The Cat Site. Rascel looks beautiful, lovely cat. Um, how do you know Rascel is a male? I have TNRd 35 cats; I can't tell you how many times I swore "Becky" was female only to have to rename her "Buckley" after neutering. I don't have a lot of personal experience with this situation, although I have been around a lot of cats, but here are my thoughts. Honestly, I think the most immediate action you need to take is to determine if in fact there are any kittens. ...
Oh please do! Glad you got an appointment with the vet. Peace of mind, if nothing else.
Thanks for checking up. Yes I've tried the feliway plugs, including a new one for multi-cats that my holistic vet ordered for me. None of the calming homeopathic supplements work on Ritz, although I am using up the bottle of Jackson Galazy's stress buster in Hercules' food. Hercules has now started to charge Ritz without any provocation. Usually Ritz runs away and hides, but once she happened to be on her back, belly exposed, claws out. Growling and hissing on both...
Yes it is possible to have the extra pieces removed. Note that if she IS pregnant, that would of course terminate the pregnancy (and kind of answer the question was she really spayed). That she has liquid coming out of her nipples is (to me) just plain weird. I do think you should take her to the vets. Or since you probably already have a relationship with the vet for your kitty with FHS/FAD, give him/her a call and ask his advise. PS: Ritz has FHS. Yeah, kittens...
Welcome to The Cat Site. I don't really know, but I would try to talk to the vet/person who wrote the notes in the chart about spaying. It is possible the vet missed a tiny tiny portion of the uterus, etc. Also, I wonder if simple blood work would show something, i.e., increase in estrogen? Good luck, and keep us updated.
I am sorry Hufflepuff is having such difficults (beautiful cat, by the way). Have you discussed treatment options for FHS, specifically, medication? Ritz was on Prozac for about three months for relatively mild FHS (didn't notice that much of a difference), but stronger drugs might be indicated for what seems to me a severe case of FHS. Also, what stress-reducing methods have you tried: increased play time? Feliway plug ins? Compose treats? Food? Some cats like to be...
I'm sorry your cat is going through this. I don't have any experience with e-collars. But I do have experience with FHS. Highly recommend seeing a cat specialist. Vets don't know what causes FHS; current thinking is it neurological in nature. Ritz had mild FHS symptoms--never self-mutilated. Does Prince's flank twitch? Runs up and down the hall trying to escape something? Ritz was on Prozac for about three months. I don't know that it helped that much--or if her...
That's a good idea; although calming remedies don't work on Ritz, maybe they will work on Hercules. Hercules got into another tiff with Ritz yesterday; put Herc in his safe/cat room. Ritz jumped right up onto my lap and went to sleep. Not sure how to interpret that.
I wonder if baby/toddler t-shirt would fit (never having children or done much babysitting, I haven't a clue!)
