Hi there!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Thought I had better say hello and introduce my troublesome felines! I only intended to have one cat originally. Midnight, who is now 7 years old, has great troubles with flea allergies ( I originally found this site when looking for ways to help her) that are no slowly coming under control. She is such a pretty black furred green eyed girl even with her patchy fur right now. Heres a link to a picture as I am still not sure how to sort piccies out yet. I'll get there eventually.


My plans however went awry when I found myself dumped with two two week old kittens by a student of mine. What else could I do...I became a cat mother

I now have Rosie and Mal, who are just hitting 7 months old a peice now. Mal is a great lummox who has a fair amount of growing left to do. This is him in August as my present set of photos are...not good!


And lastly Rosie who is being really hyper and mental for a cat who was neutered today. I simply cannot keep her bandage on her. Any help would be muchly appreciated!


If anyone would be interested, I have a whole set of photos of the terrible twins from 2 weeks old onwards, it is amazing how quickly they have become half grown cats rather than kittens!

Looking forward to getting to know you all

Hello and a warm welcome from Spain and my 3 kitties. Its great to meet your fur-family and they all look real peaches Your link worked fine, so you have obviously mastered that, so no problems with photos !

Its great here with lots of advice, help, support and friendship.........oh and we have a bit of fun now and then

My 2 girlies were neutered some time ago, and as far as remember they did try to lick where the bandage was, but that was all, so I dont really know what to suggest for Rosie I am sure once all our other members start waking up across the world you will get some more replies.

Anyway, enjoy the forums and keep posting photos

We love photos here

Hi welcome to TCS!

Hullo to you all

and welcome! Hope you'll love it here as much as we do! The military dermatitis ("flea allergy") issue resonates with us -- my beloved Tashi angel had it, and the most important thing, of course, is to make SURE she doesn't get any more fleas! I like Bayer's Advantage topical the best, but Frontline, Program, Top Spot, and Spot-On (and others, I'm sure) are also good. Ask your vet, or your "pet" supply store manager; and follow package directions.
Also, your vet may have some spray you can apply topically to her "hot spots" when she gets them, and/or may recommend injections of anti-inflammatory such as prednisone for this purpose. Ask your vet.

Hopefully Rosie has calmed down by now and allowed her bandage to stay on? Why has she a bandage -- is her incision site very large? Generally, these days, over here anyway, the incision site is very small,and a bandage is not required. If she requires it and still fights it, call your vet and ask about this.

And of course, we'd love to see your kitten pix -- that's what TheCatSite is all about, right, everyone?!!

Hi there we're so happy to welcome you and your kitties to TCS. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay with us - we're one great big family and you'll find loads of friends here. If I can help at all while you're finding your way around TCS just click on my username and send me a Personal Message - I'll do what I can to answer your questions

If your kitty is not bothering her incision or stitches e.g. not biting them or licking excessively, then it should be fine to leave her if she won't tolerate the bandage. If she is licking/biting the area you could try getting an e-collar from the Vet - the kind of lampshade type of arrangement that goes around the neck. If you're really worried over night, you could make a temporary one until the morning from a something the thickness of a cereal box. It's a type of cone that goes around the neck and stops the kitty from bothering the wound.

My girls never had a bandage when they were spayed. We borrowed an e-collar from the Vet in case Lily needed it, but she never bothered with the wound at all.

welcome. my lil' Kink pulled at her stitches once and jerked her head back real fast . Nearly knocked herself over . It must have really hurt . she never touched them again. She had a tiny incision with 2 little stitches. My vet doesn't bandage.
