Michael, I cannot read your posts without tears. That blessed cat. It's a wonder he is alive. And you and Jeff are his angels...but he is also very likely yours. I wonder if the hearing issue might be temporary and caused by some of other problems. The sleeping could be from exhaustion. My

I was told by a vet that they use Advantage on young kittens, but I can't remember what she said was the age. 8 weeks is definitely safe and I'm pretty sure that some vets would go even lower. It's one of those things where some vets think A/some think B. All of my foster kittens had

Maybe you could call the home you think he belongs to and let them know the shape he's in. Ask them if they would be willing to let you have him so he can get the medical attention he needs and let them know you have already spent so and so amount to get him checked out and would like to

If you're going to call, make sure you do it from work or from your cell phone. Alot of people have caller ID these days, and if you call from home, thay may be able to know who you are just by the name or number... Kat (Mew Jersey) On Wed, 10 Oct 2007, Belinda wrote: Date: Wed, 10 Oct 2007

imho, I would not call. People here are the people who would want to be called but none of us would have let our kitty get in this condition. If they aren't nice people they could make things miserable for you and this kitty by demanding his return. You are stewards for the kitty. Imho whatever

HI Michael I am way behind on emails, but I will respond to the Baytril question. Junior is currently on Baytril it kills all the good bacteria in the gut and gives him diarreah. So As soon as he gets on this I get him on probiotics. He has not had any diarrhea. His dosage is 22.7mg per day. I

Michael It was so great that you were able to post his picture. It gives all of us a sense of who he is and a connection to him, that a name does not quite do. He is such a lovely boy and I am so glad you decided to 'take him on'. My (holistic) vet recommended the probiotic FortiFlora as an

I just went to the warning page for Baytril and his dose is withing the safe range. It says not to exceed 5 mg per KG Junior weighs 6.35 kg so that would equate to a dose up to 31.75 mg. Thanks for the heads up. Sally On 10/10/07, laurieskatz [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:  Sally, this is a very

Hi everyone Today I found a home for a kitten that showed up literally on my doorstep last Friday. I had just taken on Pewter 2 months ago. She cost me a bit more than I could afford. She spread her ear mites around and I had to do Revolution for everyone. She is now done with her shots and just
