Glenda, It's okay to dwell on this issue as long as you turn it into a positive experience, as you are trying to do. It's very sad what happened, but I think that you are on the right track with your passion to change things for the better! Good! Melissa -Original Message- From: [EMAIL

Beckie, You sound really stressed! You are such a good person for helping this poor kitty! As for pilling, I know that many people here use the gravy from the wet food for mixing the pills with-maybe that would work? Maybe use some raw meat like liver (yuck) or something like that to entice

Caroline, I think it's great what you are doing! I'm very happy that your mom is getting on board with it! I know my family admires (even though they may not understand) my compassion for animals, but getting them to help, even reluctantly, is something I haven't been able to do as of late.

Glenda, As usual, I think that Wendy always states things perfectly. I've been reading your story, but I've been unable to think of what to say. I had to decide what I felt first. Wendy's honesty put me in the right direction. I think it's easy to place blame and to point a finger at you

Hi Glenda, I didn't read this until this morning at work. What horrible people for not letting you back to see Marmalade. I've got my fingers crossed for him. It's so sad how many people don't care about our fellow creatures. Let us know right away about Marmalade. He sounds like a great cat who

Hi Caroline, I use Nutritional Yeast, which I think is the same as Brewer's Yeast. I put it on my air-popped popcorn instead of butter. However, it's high in iron and has a warning that children can OD on this from the iron-very dangerous. So, since kitties are smaller than children, I'd be

Good Luck Miles! I know a lot of the people here use something called Rescue Remedy to calm down their cats (and themselves). I've been meaning to get it for the next car ride for a few of my scaredy cats, but I don't know anything about it. Hope everything is okay with Miles! Melissa

Beckie, I'm glad you've discovered the culprit for the kitchen messes! I completely agree that he needs to go to the vet to rule out a UTI. His actions remind me in many ways of our same problems earlier. The howling can be from pain (it constantly feels like he has to pee from the burning) or
