Was doing some rearranging in my bedroom closet, so I temporarily moved my walker and the old granny cart I use for trainsporting laundry to/from the laundry room to the living room.  Guess the walker is staying in the living room for awhile because Salem has been taking naps on it.

Are cat breeders getting mommy cats drunk to make fetal alcohol kittens now?

Pinner: Are cat breeders getting mommy cats drunk to make fetal alcohol kittens now?


Mr. Marbles was adopted from a shelter, so unlikely a breeder had anything to with anything.  And the famous Lil Bub's mother was a feral. The rest of her litter didn't have the genetic issues that Bub did.

And the Lil Bub foundation has raised tons of money for kittehs that need special vet services..

I'm happy he found another oddball to adopt. Seems like good people.

I'd love some advice from my fellow cataholics. I have a cat that has a treatable medical condition (he is approximately 10-11 years old). His immune system is attacking his liver. We confirmed it with a major surgery. The treatment is steroids. I am having several issues. The first is that he REALLY hates taking the medication. He's a bit aloof and prefers his life and affection on his terms. When I try to give him the medications he either fights me or runs and hides by wedging himself under heavy furniture. The second is that he is extremely smart. He knows when I am holding the medication and figures out the various disguises I have used. This has led to him basically constantly running away from me even when I don't have medications. Third he seems sick after he takes the medications. And fourth, these consistent medications make his herpes eye flair up really bad.

So with all that, I am think it may be better decision to try one more time with some eye medication on the side, and if it becomes a major problem again, just let him live his best life happy for however long he has instead of pushing medications on him. Even if it is treatable. If he's going to be miserable and afraid for however long he needs to take the medication, maybe it's better to leave him happy instead of pushing it.

Of course I am always to ideas! So what do you guys think? Is it kinder to let him be and live the rest of his life happy (he seems totally fine now). Or should I really push the medications in hopes it does make a difference over the next couple months?

Mr. Bobug sent me a pic of Dresden this morning... and, boy, does he look happy. Mr. Bobug said Dres was very salty. Sitting at my desk, glaring.

Chauncey reminds me of Jack Jack. A coworker rescued him off of the street, and Chica adopted him. He is loving and not a snuggler, but he is a hoot.

I don't have much, but maybe talk to your vet about other options?  Best of luck!

What's the medication?  How are you giving it?  Pills?  There are other ways of administering meds besides pills, it depends on the medication.

I had a cat several years ago who had heart issues and was on meds most of his life. About the last year, he decided he was just done with them and in all honesty, it was much harder on him to try and medicate him during this time than to let him go without due to the stress. He was never going to have a long life (and they were actually surprised when he made it past 5 years old) and after talking with the vet, figured the best thing for him was to let him have his way. He went about a year before his heart finally said I'm ready and he passed peacefully in my arms.

I would discuss this with your vet, maybe there is a way to compound the med into something that will be easier to give (wasn't an option for me sadly)  or even an alternative (like shots every so often). Definitely keep them in the loop however. They're the best at giving guidance on what can/can't be done.

We had a lovely girl, Aria, who had thyroid cancer. Treatment was an ointment in her ear, twice a day, and she HATED it. We did a lot of soul searching and decided to let her live happy, and not avoid us, being afraid of meds. She was 15 at the time, so slightly older. We listened when she was ready to cross the bridge, too. I can't say what is right for you, but that is our story.
