Made a mistake.  It was doxycycline that was the treatment for Hemobartonella. 
So many diseases, so many drugs, so few brain cells working.

Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors

The Doxy is for suspected Hemobartonella. Glad she is doing better!

Re: [Felvtalk] Bedwetting Cat sofa advice?

2012-12-30 Thread catatonya
I went with an outoor love seat and 2 chairs with removable cushions. I have a 
glider already. If someone comes over I'll get the cushions out of the spare 
bedroom and put them on the patio furniture. lol.
I think you could mix the cat attract. Maybe start out with it straight, and if 
it works, start mixing regular back in I had one cat years ago that cat 
attract worke for.
I also know people use the small kiddy wading pools for litter boxesI've 
never tried that, but when it got bad in the past, I just put litter boxes in 
every room they used. I sat them on the sofas, on a chest at the bottom of my 
bed, etc... I'm down to 5 cats, but I still have to separate food and water 
dishes in all different rooms I always have more food bowls than there are 
cats. You might increase the number of litter boxes and spread them out. The 
cats do like to corner and pounce on unsuspecting victims eating or in the 
God bless you and all who rescue. Believe it or not, I've had more dog problems 
recently. I haven't even moved the patio furniture from the basement where it 
was delivered up to the living room. My old sofas are in various stages of 
being taken apart since I can't give them to Goodwill! I've been 'handicapping' 
the back deck stairs with lights and astro turf to prevent falls from a couple 
of elderly dogs
Happy New Year!

To prevent the bedding and sofa covers from being snatched off the furniture 
by the cat you can purchase sticky-back Velcro.  Attach one side to the 
underside of the plastic sheeting or whatever you are using and place the 
matching strip on the sofa and press down to stick it to the sofa material.  
It doesn't have to be perfect but it will prevent the plastic from drifting 
away off the sofa.  You can also use things like metal clips purchased at an 
office supply store to clip the plastic to the sofa. Use enough of them.  You 
can also purchase screw pins that are used to pin sofa covers to old 
furniture.  Doesn't do any damage.  The small hole it makes closes up when the 
pin is removed.  

Have you thought about buying a fitted sofa and love seat cover?  You can have 
the back plasticized with a
 heat process.  You have to look this up in the phone book though, under 
plasticizing or phone an upholstery company and see if they can do that.  

As a last resort, put your sofa and love seat and TV in a separate room  that 
can be closed off and put plastic lawn furniture in you living room and turn 
the living room over to the misbehaving cat.

I'm going to buy some of that cat attract litter.  Can it be mixed with pine 
litter or clay litter? I can't afford anything very expensive.  I usually get 
donated litter here.  I have so many cats who think outside of the box that I 
no longer use a pooper scooper.  I use a small yard shovel.  Sigh.  The 
President of one of our rescue organizations is going to build an outside 
shelter attached to a shed on her property for 15 cats who will never learn 
litter box protocol.  They were rescued after their former owner passed away.  
They are older
 cats with set habits and some health issues, not adoptable.  It seems like the 
cat rescue movement is  filled with saints and angels, the best of the human
