A Little Cat Advice is Needed, If You Please

I need your help. I have three cat-related problems that I am hoping you have some experience with, and can share how you dealt with them. PROBLEM 1: Yella Fella needs to lose some weight. At the vet’s office yesterday I was told he could develop diabetes. I knew he needs to lose weight, and … 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

The Bubba Saga Continues…

The Bubba Saga continues. Taking care of Bubba is a full-time job. Fortunately I have been doing a lot of working from home lately so I could be here to take care of him. There was a flea issue. I had applied Revolution to each cat. But the vet found fleas on Bubba two weeks … Continue reading

All Things Equal…

Hello. I am Hissy Fit Jones. As a cat who started life homeless, I have a certain affinity for my fellow cats and dogs who do not have a home where they are cared for and loved. Things are better for us animals than they used to be. Back in the day, 12-20 million of … Continue reading

June Buggie’s Latest Vet Visit

More From Rumpy

I am now assigned to work from home. It’s great to get to be here with Rumpy and the kitties more, even if I’m working. Especially now. Rumpy has taken a turn for the worse. He still eats well and never says no when I offer to take him outside, but his breathing continues to … Continue reading

The Vet Said…

We’ve just come back from our follow-up with the vet. The initial exam was unremarkable. Normal temp. Breathing sounded better. His lymph nodes felt OK. Next more X-rays to have another look at that lymph node. I also asked if they’d aspirate the tumor on his leg to see if it could be a lypoma. It’s … Continue reading

The Latest on Rumpy

Rumpy continues to amaze me with his recovery.   Don’t get me wrong, he’s not well. Right now he’s lying at my feet panting. His breathing is no longer labored, but it’s still heavy. Last week I was begging him to eat anything. This morning he ate his regular dry food mixed with canned! Last week … Continue reading

June Buggie Has Hyperthyroidism
