Chairman Squishy Meow - The Fungus that never was? - Page 2

post #31 of 56
Since it's winter, I wonder if it's a food allergy, or something he was treated with for fleas, worms, etc.?

He was frontline 5 weeks ago, this just showed up last week. He hasn't got any fleas....that was one thing the vet thoroughly checked him for. We got a different type of blanket that we used in his cage, I considered that it had been that. We also switched him to SD i/d food from the Purina adult because he had loose stools.

When I saw that pic of him side on I thought of my dog April many years ago when she had flea alergy. At the time I was trying different diets & omega supplements. The vet gave her cortisone shots, which worked until they wore off. He also gave me an iodine lotion that I was to dilute 10/1. It cleared up the weepy, crusty sores she had at different times. Spot-ons were reasonable new at the time, but once I discoved them, she hasn't had the problem since.
I'm so glad he can now start to heal.

Oh that is such great news! I was really hoping it wouldn't be something too bad for him or you. Now hopefully he will be better real soon!

That's wonderful news, Nat -- a real answer, and something that can be dealt with. Scritches for your sweet boy, and many to you for all the love and care you give these sweeties. that the treatment is effective QUICKLY.

I'm hoping it's something simple & silly. I'd still like to place him somewhere, indoors....otherwise he'll have to become a farm kitty.

Oh & he met Ophelia. I don't think she's ever had her bum kicked before!

You mean she didn't kick his butt?

So glad it isn't anything too serious, and fingers crossed it means he can find a home. Poor Ophelia!!

Im glad its not mange or roundworms!! I guess just being allergies is good news, just as long as you can figure out what it is that he's allergic too!!!

I bet Ophilia was a little disapointed to get her butt whooped!!! It always comes as a shocker to them!

I'm starting to hope he'll beat the tar out of her & she'll stop attacking the other kitties. If he can do so by Thursday, I might just have to keep PJ & Punky for longer.

You know - in these forums, we always find ourselves hoping for the strangest things! Pee, poop, appropriately colored vomit - one kitty to beat up another kitty....

C'mon Chairman Squish! Help Natalie keep PJ & Punky for longer!

He may just turn out to be the answer to your "Ophelia problems".

Squishy has taken over the basement!

PJ & Punky were climbing the curtains, he walked over, screamed bloody murder at them. They got down right away.

He's established himself as "king"....Ophelia no longer rules. All 3 boys are much more relaxed!
post #51 of 56
Well, if "Squish" is asserting himself already, he must be feeling better!!! yay!!!!

And he's not going to take any of the kids' shenanigans!
post #52 of 56
He's changed the "equation". Let's just hope that Ophelia can deal with it!
post #53 of 56
He's so grateful to you for taking him and giving him a loving home! He's decided he's going to help YOU out, now!!

I was thinking it seemed as if his message to Ophelia was "That's what YOU think, Sistah!" Seems he's just as effective with the small fry.

My cat might have allergies too. Either that or he is scratching himself. If I ever catch the cat I can post a photo of what it looks like.
What exactly did your vet prescribe to your cat?
post #56 of 56
Aww, bless him. Fingers crossed they all sort themselves out soon.
