DoomsDayAardvark: valnt9: tigerose: Canadian Lurker: This week, my cat Sterling got sprayed by a skunk, again.
Considering his age and aggressive attitude, bathing him in tomato juice is no longer an option.
Fed up with his smelly stubborness, I told Sterling to go stick his head under a faucet or something.

[i176.photobucket.com image 550x550]

peroxide,baking soda and a squirt of dishwashing soap..like Dawn..is the best thing to use on the kitteh for de-skunking.

what is the ratio?

Weirdly, I'm watching a back episode of Mythbusters right now, and they just claimed that that combination of products beat commercial de-skunking products.  Unfortunately, they didn't say what the ratio was.


I'll look that episode up. Sterling is 14 years old and has a record of sending two vets to the hospital for stitches and shots. No one wants to touch him.

Anyone have any advice related to rabbits? Husband & I visited with a lovely flemish giant named Barnaby at the local animal shelter, but neither of us has any bunny experience. He's 10 months old, freshly neutered and 16 lbs.  img.fark.net

Here's what a quick and dirty search turned up for me...

--------------------------------------------------------------------- - --------------------------------

You can remove the odor from your dog using household items. It's all thanks to chemist Paul Krebaum, who developed the recipe in 1993. Skunk spray is very oily and contains sulfur (hence the stench). This recipe causes a chemical reaction that breaks up the oils and neutralizes the odor.
Difficulty: Average
Time Required: 30-60 minutes
Here's How:

As soon as you realize your dog has been sprayed by a skunk, don some rubber or latex gloves and old clothes and look her over for bites or scratches. Also check her eyes for redness or discharge. If any injuries are found, you should contact your veterinarian before proceeding.
Time is of the essence here - the longer you wait to begin the process, the harder it will be to remove the stench. Get set up for bathing your dog outdoors or in an easy to clean area of your home (laundry room, bathroom, etc). If indoors, open a window to save your nose!
Apply a small strip of eye lubricant (such as Puralube) or 1-2 drops of mineral oil to your dog's eyes. This will help protect the eyes in case any of the solution splashes or drips in.
In the plastic container, combine 1 quart hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 to 2 teaspoons of liquid soap. Add lukewarm water if needed (for larger dogs). Mix ingredients well. The solution will fizz, as a chemical reaction is occurring. Use immediately - do not store.
Do not soak your dog with water prior to bathing. Promptly begin cleansing the affected areas thoroughly, massaging the solution deep into your dog's coat. You may wish to use a sponge or washcloth. Avoid getting the solution in the eyes, ears or mouth.

Allow the solution to remain on your dog for at least five minutes (longer if strong odor persists).
Rinse your dog well with lukewarm water. Repeat steps 3-5 as necessary until odor is gone.
Dry your dog well and give her a treat!

Tips:

NEVER place the solution in a closed container or spray bottle, as the pressure will build up and the container could burst. This could cause serious injury to you and your dog.
DO NOT use higher concentrations of hydrogen peroxide or substitute baking soda with "similar" products. The altered chemical reaction could cause severe injury to you and your dog.
Be certain you use fresh hydrogen peroxide, as it becomes less concentrated over time. If you are unsure how old your hydrogen peroxide is (or if it is expired) get fresh bottles just in case.
The solution can be used to remove skunk odor from clothing and other fabrics. However, it can have a mild bleaching effect on some materials. In addition, your dog's coat may become slightly lighter as a result of the solution. If this happens, it should resolve over time. Don't worry, your black dog will not become a platinum blond!
To help avoid future meetings between skunks and your dog, try to prevents skunks from becoming attracted to your property. Do not leave food outside, including bird seed and fallen fruit from trees. Make sure garbage cans are well-secured. Placing moth balls and ammonia-soaked rags around your property might deter skunks from approaching. In addition, keep your dog within eye shot and keep her from running into wooded areas unattended.

Try this again. Got home just over an hr ago from chorus retreat, which went very well. Most mbrs were there tho not all -- was dubbed 'mandatory' but 1 was on vacation, 1 had to work, youngest has flu, 3-4 others dunno what their excuses/grounds were but they had 'em.  Outta Town Expert came to coach, did quite well. Some things we'd heard before, but not for a while. 5cast is for 2-3" ice followed by 3-4" snow starts 1AM; La Dir'll make call by 1PM tomorrow. Likely we'll reh Wed instead.
Also got local radio club mtg Tue, hope streets cleared enough by then. Last March's club mtg cancelled for wx.

I last saw my cat 5 years ago. As I was walking to the bus today, she came bounding up to me meowing and rubbing her head on my ankles. She remembered me after all this time! Welcome back Priscilla!
by Flimingow -- some reddit comments furrst
arthur_hairstyle: She looks awfully healthy for being missing for five years. Someone must have been taking care of her.
Flimingow: I know, and Im happy that somebody has! My cat has lived a long and healthy life, and thats what matters the most :)
dibblah:  You should maybe try to find out where she's been, someone's been thinking of her as "their" cat for five years and now is missing her :(
--some imgur comments
bitty2shoes:  DID SHE COME BACK WITH A PACK OF SMOKES LIKE SHE PROMISED
KaatjeMSK:  As a mailwoman I always make sure to keep an eye out for missing cats when I see a pamphlet for one. I walk all around the city anyway!
meismanator:  I lost my cat once. I couldn't stop crying, we looked everywhere. Three days later, I found him curled up in my closet. Asshole.
mustbefunatparties:  My family cat went missing 6 months ago and stories like this give me hope!
NickkciN:  Looks like her murderous rampage is over.
PressHere:  She came back for her last victim...
elfdo:  I wonder how that custody hearing went.
Flimingow: Oh, and yes we have found out where she has been. Someone down the road said she jumped through her open window, so she fed her and continued to do so... A tiny bit annoying that she admitted that she didnt make an attempt to let the public know that she found a cat.. but thats in the past now and I personally dont think its worth causing a big fuss
Amelaclya1: Wow you are a better person than I am. I would be furious. My cat has been missing for 3 years now, and though I would be happy to find out he is alive and well, I would hate the person who kept him from me if no attempts were made to contact me.
Flimingow: I know, it is upsetting, but shes probably very used to living in the environment she is living in now, I wouldnt want to cause her any stress, besides she is very old now and probably wants to rest in a familiar environment.
Im also thinking about what wouldve happened if I didnt see her the other day. I would have still accepted that she was lost or had died. This woman couldve kept her until the cat passed and I would have never of known that she was okay for those years

But safe is still safe, imho.

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: CaveGirlMel: yay for Caturday !! This is Bella, the newest member of the family! Bout 6 and 1/2 months old.[img.fark.net image 708x507]

WELCOME BELLA (ow, my head)!  Enjoy the gushy food and scrachy toys.

Welcome, CaveGirlMel.


/Can I have a bite of yer cookie?


Thanks !! (i just got home from work.. so replies are late.. )
Of course you can have a bite!! Cookies for everyone !

Tigerose- I brought Awesome cookies... that's what kind lol.

 We've had her for 2 weeks now, I got her from a girl i work with, who in my opinion, is a bad pet owner.
She's getting fixed very shortly(and according to my vet i was talking to when pricing spay surgeries, said that she should have been fixed at at least 5 months old). I also learned shortly after i brought her home that she's never been the vet at all, So i'm going to be seeing if they can do her boosters the same day she gets fixed. I've never been so disgusted with a pet owner as i was with her previous owners. Plus the fact that her 6 yr old used to practically maul her(i saw first hand, which is why i think she's not a fan of being picked up, seems like she's warming up to it slowly now).

My son on the other hand is thrilled ! She's one of his (very early) Birthday presents(he's almost 5) and tell's me all the time that he's glad we have Bella and how much he loves her. She's spoiled and he constantly plays with her. he doesn't even try to pick her up, he's more content to just sitting next to her to pet her.

I never knew how much i missed having a cat around until we got her. She sleeps next to me, attacks my toes in the morning, chews on her cat grass and runs around most days like she's on crack, she's awesome lol.

Does any one have any post-op tips on how to keep her from picking at her stitches(for when she goes in to get spayed) ? I had cats growing up, but i don't remember the time when my parents got them fixed or how they kept them from picking at it.

Of course i had to add a second photo of her when she's gone all crazy for her cat tree lol

It is my great pleasure to report that the white boy has shown definite improvement today! He is eating better, and his litter box visitations have slowed down drastically - only twice in the last 6 hours or so - and we have lots of pee - albeit still a bit more bloody than I would like, but on the whole, things are looking up!

He is also sleeping better, not nearly as restless as he was yesterday. I haz a happy! Thanks once again to everyone for your support, we both really appreciate it!!!

I have had 2 females spayed and neither picked at their stitches. See what your vet says, but usually you just watch them and get a cone if they seem to want to pick at them. I've had 2 males who have had belly surgeries also and neither of them picked at stitches either.

Gremie is male but he had to have major surgery when he was neutered because his marbles didn't drop. He was fitted with a cone for about 2 weeks.

Yep, that's the recipe. I'm not sure of the ratio but Google should help you out. Works much better and is much cheaper than tomato juice.

We use Dixie plates if we notice one of the kitties going at their incisions, hell of a lot cheaper than a plastic cone of shame. Just cut a hole in the middle of the plate that will go over the head but not come back off. The plus is that since its paper, if it snags on something, it will rip right off instead of trapping kitty :)
