Gah... some kids found a little kitten and gave it to my neighbor at the barn where she goes to visit her horse. He's so little!!!! I'm guessing like 4 weeks?? He's lapping up kitten formula from a bowl, cleaning himself, pooping ok, playing, etc.. but doesnt know how to use the litterbox. She doesnt think she can keep him (she already has 2 cats and 5 rats) so we have to figure something out but he's so freaking cute!!!

I have fed her the Science Diet Oral Care and she was on Eukanuba for awhile - I mainly fed her those because I could get those brands free or deeply discounted in school.

If Beckham brings up the food within an hour of eating, it is usually regurgitation rather than true vomiting. It is most often connected to eating too much at once and/or eating too fast. Sometimes the sensitive stomach can help, but if it is a 'piggy' issue it won't matter what you feed him. We recommend trying different ways to slow them down, like:
-smaller meals more frequently
-obstacle in the food dish like a soup can or a few golf balls so they have to take a little more time
-feeding on a cookie sheet with the kibbles spread out

Sometimes doing more canned food can help though you still often have to slow them down by smooshing it real thin over a larger surface.

This was very helpful. Thanks!
My Gordon has the barfing problem as well. I've always suspected it was because he eats too much, too fast. The couple of vets I spoke with both said it had something to do with acid reflux. One said I should feed him kibbles that are round and not "x" shaped. The other recommended crushing up half of a Pepcid stomach acid reducer pill into their food. Neither worked, of course.

I bought the greatest thing ever this week.

The Furminator.


I have 2 short haired cats and they shed like crazy. I've tried all the regular pet store brushes and they just don't help. My friend bought this for her cat and he loves it.

This thing gets rid of all the loose hair and my kitties love being brushed by it. Their coats are soft and when I pet them I don't get a handful of fur now.

I take Will and Roscoe for their FIV test tomorrow. Wish us luck!

I took both cats to the vet today.

Note to self: Buy another cat carrier.

Taking 2 cats at the same time was not a lot of fun. I had one in the carrier and one in his harness. Neither were happy. I have to call after 2pm tomorrow for the results.

The vet shaved a little patch of fur where she took blood. Now both cats have little bald spots on their chests. If they didn't look so pathetic when she brought them back in the room I would have laughed. I'm still hopeful that they are both negative.
