The Abscess on Mocha's Head

Keeping up with the festive cheer, Mocha's early Christmas present to me is an oozing cut on his head which warranted a trip to the vet (and I was only there yesterday with Ripley!)

The amount of liquid coming out of this cut was unbelievable. Mop it up and it more would just flow out.

Turns out Mocha has an abscess as a result of some fight.…

Ripley's Ringworm - Under His Nostril

Yay! A Christmas present from my cat.

Ringworm.

Great. Another vet visit to check out the weird colouration under his left nostril (see the pic above) which turns out to be ringworm. Irritation from that explains why he was constantly licking his nose.

He was thoroughly scanned and examined to see the extent of the infection and it looks like only that part of his face is affected.…

Ripley reclining in his hammock

Last night, I noticed that Ripley was having difficulty urinating again and cystitis has reared its head again. He's been hopping in and out of different litter trays trying to urinate with little success.

I'm just back from the vet and they've taken him in for observation. They had to use a needle to extract urine from his bladder due to the blockage in his urethra.…

Ripley On The Bed

I brought Ripley up to the vet to see how he was progressing after he was put on medication for a bald patch he'd scratched on his neck that I discovered about 2 weeks ago.

The antibiotic tablets weren't a success. They're large for cat and he had to get two per day. By day 6, he was vomiting up the tablet given at night.…

Ripley reclining in his hammock

The health disaster that are my two cats continues. There's not a month that goes by that I don't have to bring one of them to the vet for some complaint. Last month it was Mocha, yesterday it was Ripley.

What Problem This Time?

I'd noticed some scabs under Ripley's fur, on the left side of his neck on Friday.…

Ripley On The Bed

I just collected Ripley from the vet where's he's been under their care for the last 2 days.

The urine test showed that there had been a buildup of crystals in his bladder and these had deposited in the urethra to cause the blockage that prevented hin from urinating.

The vet manually manipulated the urinary tract to get the urethra flushed out.…

Mocha In The Garden

I find myself in a position where one of my cats is urinating inappropriately around the house, and these episodes are becoming more common.

A Little History

Back in December 2013, I said goodbye to my previous cat, Fritz. About a month after he died, I adopted two kittens as I missed the company of a cat. They were brothers and a condition of their adoption was that I keep them together.…

Cat Diseases

Cats often divide people’s opinions as most feel strongly about them one way or the other. However, it is safe to say that cats are among the most popular pets in the whole wide world, but regardless of whether someone owns a pet cat or not, one thing is for sure, no one wants to see these little animals in pain and suffering from a disease.…
