Wednesday I lost my best friend. She was a short haired grey tabby. She was only 10 years old. Never sick a day in her life. I got up as normal fed the dogs and as my dad woke up he found her dead at the foot of his bed on the floor. Her legs were streched out like she had been walking and fell over. I have four cats all very healthy and I have no idea what happened to her. To me there are only to possibities....a heart attack or getting something caught in her throat(she had a bad habit of eating any sort of paper product or strings) but I could find any signs of disturbance or obstruction in her throat. I keep wondering if I missed something. Or what else it could have been
A stray cat took me in about 4 months ago and I didn't know much about him. I was fortunate to have him in my life for this short time as he was the friendliest cat and quite a character! My vet told me he was at least 12 so definitely an older cat. Since it is winter he spent most of the time cozied up inside but I did give him the opportunity to go outside which he would take advantage of once in awhile but just in short spurts. I think he had experienced enough of the outside before he came to me.Anyway, last night before we went to bed I fed him and gave him some treats which is the usual routine we've grown into. Just as he was finishing his treats he acted like he was slipping or tripping and then just collapsed. I ran over to him and he was motionless but his heart was racing real fast. After 30 seconds he stopped breathing and never back around. Very heartbreaking. He had been to the vet 3X in those 4 months but nothing out of the ordinary. Can anyone provide any insight into what may have happened to my Pogo? I'll talk to my vet tomorrow as well.Thanks
Need cat selection help
Hi, I am a little confused about what breed of cat to get because originally I was thinking a Burmese but read that it is better to have 2 as they require a lot of attention.
This will be our first indoor cat, our 11yr old dog recently passed away :-(
So if anyone can help with breed selection, that would be great!
Here is some info:
* I have two young boys, school age (5yr and 7yr)
* The cat would be on its own only 3 days a week (approx 8.30am - 3.30pm), I only work 3 days a week. Obviously on the weekends we might go out on Sundays...etc and on my days off I might duck out to the shops...
* It would be an only cat, we really don't want a second cat.
* I would love the cat to be playful, but also love to snuggle on our laps.
* I really don't like the idea of having a lot of hair around on the furniture or clothing, so would prefer a low shedding cat. Am I right in saying that even domestic cats shed quite a bit in comparison to some other breeds?
I really want to choose the right breed, your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Re: finding breeders of small dogs
Where can a senior couple go to get a small puppy/dog that doesn't cost an arm and leg....
Dark fluid in ears, now coughing & sneezing
Hi. I wanted to get some advice about one of my dogs. It is the weekend so my vet's office is closed. Beginning a couple of days ago, Shadow started shaking his head (ears), constantly, and I realized he has a lot of dark colored fluid in his ear. I have been using a vinegar/water solution to flush the ear and provide him some relief. I have now purchased some Vet's Best Ear Relief and started using that to try to dry up the fluid.Today, he has started sneezing and coughing. He is eating and drinking but is laying around a lot. I will probably be taking him to the vet on Monday but wondered if there is anything I can do, until then, to help with the coughing and sneezing. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
