Hey Alice, Thanks for asking. Actually, Autumn stopped eating again last week and I found a large (3-4 inch) mass in her abdomen. I knew it was a large lymphoma so I let her stop eating and she died two days ago. I miss her deeply. She was so young and vital so full of life and love. I

Jenny and other forum members, too, I have a young cat with CH, lymphoid hypoplasia and now severe asthma. She has weakened greatly in her hind legs and back. My vet has not been able to get her asthma under control. She has spells or fits and will get very very violent with us. She does

I am sorry to hear this. My asthmatic cat bites me. I think he is terrified when he can't breathe. He is also blind which could be a factor. He is not FeLV+. We had a FeLV+ who was having tremors. The vet thought it might have been a medication we were giving her. Re the bite, I use Calendula

This is concerning your safety and not the well-being of your wonderful cat who is having an awful time: Be very careful about those bites. Perhaps you can get some heavy leather gloves? I had a feral that I was taking to be spayed bite my little finger. She broke it and I had to have

Hi Laurie, I Hate myself for having thoughts of letting her go at such a young age. She is a very beautiful cat whom I have raised since she was one day old. She was brought to me on Mother's Day in 2008. Her CH was made worse when I had her vaccinated and again when I had her spayed. It seems

Cougar Clan, Thanks for your email to me. I know my cat is just defending herself too; like the feral one that bite youShe is only doing it because she cannot breathe and doesn't know what to do. I really haven't even thought about my safety. I don't blame her at all. I love her so much

Hi Kim Wonder if you put a rug or towel in the litter box if she would use it there. Wonder if the sides of the box scare her. I try to think like a cat. She is telling you she likes something soft and flat to urinate. I feel your fear. Sometimes when I don't know what to do, I put it out there

Her name is Itty Bitty and my vet has only given us prednisone to use. She was also put on an oral mediation to enlarge her bronchial tubes but the medication did not help her as much as the prednisone has. ...Saving just one pet won't change the worldbut surely the world will change for that

Laurie, I actually attached a small rug to a plastic carpet runner with those large metal clasps. She wouldn't use it. I'd place her on it and she would crawl off of it and go beside it when I had carpet there. Then I just started carrying her to her box a few times a day. She is very

Has the vet suggested lactulose for the constipation? Does she get enough fluids? Canned food? I have a friend who has had a cat or more with CH. Is there an internal medicine specialist anywhere near you? Would you be interested in a telephone consult with one? L now I really am going off line
