How’s Little Girl Doing?

Little Girl continues to act fearful. So I’ve put calming collars on her, Hissy and Graybie. I didn’t put one on Yella because he’s already the most mellow cat in the world. I still have the diffusers going. And I am offering Little Girl time alone in the bedroom. As far as Hissy goes, I … Continue reading

So How’s Yella Doing?

It’s been one month now since I changed the way Yella Fella is eating. As you may recall, I told you his vet said he was at risk of developing diabetes and needed to lose some weight. After pondering advice offered by our vet and by our readers, I made a choice on how to … Continue reading

Another Vet Visit for Bubba

Bubba and I visited the vet. His thyroid levels are good, but he hasn’t gained any more weight. He does look a lot better. The lesion in his mouth has healed. But there is swelling. So what does that mean? Well, we’re not sure. The vet is concerned. When she removed those teeth, he had … Continue reading

Laryngeal Paralysis: Does My Dog Have It?

Does my dog have laryngeal paralysis?  Rumpy breathes heavily, especially when he sleeps. He also becomes tired more quickly when he walks. Sometimes when he’s excited he gags. And a few times while walking he’s seemingly tripped over something but nothing was there. The vet first mentioned it last year but passed it off as a normal part … Continue reading

I Can’t See the Forest for the Trees

Sometimes the truth is staring us in the face, and we still don’t see it. That’s how it is with me in regards to Bubba Cat. For the past two years, I’ve known Bubba has severe arthritis. My previous vet and I have worked together to manage his pain. He’s been on Adequan for a … Continue reading

Have you noticed all these special dog days on the calendar? Just Friday we celebrated Love Your Pet Day, and now here it is Walking Your Dog Day! Studies indicate that as many as 40% of owners do not regularly walk their dogs. There are any number of reasons why. Earlier this week I touched … Continue reading

We’re Having Problems with Bubba Cat

So I’ve got this problem with Bubba Cat. Last night he pissed on my jeans. Again.   Let me back up to the beginning. A year ago, Bubba started spending all of his time in my bedroom. A couple of trips to the vet and I was told he has arthritis. So I set him … Continue reading
