Thanks to everyone for your advice. From what I have read, I think that he is not spraying. Maybe marking (thank God he hasn't felt the need to claim me!) or peeing but not spraying. I called the vet about having him neutered and they said he has to have a rabies shot and distemper. I am

Hi Jennifer, Technically most state laws govern that a cat has to have rabies shots. I'd check your county/state laws to make sure. You can, however, get away with not giving them rabies shots if they are not licensed. I don't think I've ever heard of states requiring you to give

Well, I took Lucy to the local vet for a PCV check today because she has been so lethargic that I was sure it was under 10 and I would need to decide on a transfusion over the weekend. But it was 15! I was very glad about that. She is still super-lethargic, though, although she has more

Midnight is not licensed. That is not a requirement in my county. I was told by my vet that he is required to have rabies and distemper vaccines in order to come into the vet for the surgery because of the other cats. Problem #1 is that he is there for check ups with out the vaccines. #2 he

Does your cat have liver problems? Is he anemic? Are you giving the denosyl just for that? I had only heard of it helping with liver problems. If it is for anemia itself, can you let me know the amount of SAMe that is in each dose you give him? I would not be able to get denosyl tday, but
