Phantom & ScruffyThank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy the stories and information about our furry friends. As a long term cat lover, starting with Sulieman the Magnificent (Suli) when I was about two years old up to the present menagerie. Sadly, we lost Raffers last year after an illness but soon enough Phantom joined the family of Foe, Folly and Scruffy. Scruffy and Phantom are often found together fighting, grooming or just lying around, as cats do; here they are sharing the sofa. The other two are more solitary.As some wit once said “Dogs have masters, cats have servants.”   How true that is!

Enjoy browsing.

Cat Health ProblemsCat health problems aren’t always obvious as cats don’t really show when they are in pain and have no way of communicating that as humans do. However, there are some things that mean there is something seriously wrong. This is the second part of Raffers’ tale and follows on from his kidney stone episode (you can read the first part at EzineArticles).

We brought the big boy back from the vet where he had been given a clean bill of health following an operation to remove a kidney stone from his ureter. Not two hours later, we noticed that he couldn’t stand up; he had completely lost the use of his back legs. I managed to catch the vet in his car and he agreed to turn round and meet me back at his surgery.… Continue reading

If your cat has kidney disease then a specific cat kidney disease diet can help to alleviate the symptoms and make the cat more able to cope with the disease. However, the best thing of all for your cat is that it does eat something so if it doesn’t like a special cat kidney disease diet, just let it eat what it does like.

What to choose for cat kidney disease food:

Firstly, cats are usually pretty picky eaters so if they feel a bit under the weather and they don’t like the food presented to them, they just won’t eat it. That the cat eats is far more important than any prescription diet.

Secondly, whatever you feed your cat it should be low in phosphorous and low protein; what protein it does contain should be high quality.… Continue reading

If you’ve never had cat health insurance before, you need to know what sort of cover you can expect as companies and policies can vary tremendously. The one constant is that most companies won’t accept a cat over a certain age (usually eight years old) and neither will they cover pre-existing conditions. There will also be exclusions; read these carefully.

Basic Cover

This is what you can expect from a basic cat health insurance policy:

• The cost of the vet examining your cat
• Tests including blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound and MRI
• Costs associated with surgery, in-patient treatment including nursing

Some kittens can inherit defective genes from their parents and these may show up in later life. Treatment can be expensive so this cover can be important, particularly if you have a pedigree animal.… Continue reading
