Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Thank you! I wanted to try the Sulfodene first to see if that helped, but I wanted to make sure it would not be toxic to him. I am on a strict budget, and it costs $100.00 it seems just to walk into the vet's office. I looked him over really good, and did not see any fleas. It almost looks like some kind of irratation, and he wants to bite and scratch it resulting in some fur loss. I figured I would try the Sulfodene first and if that did not help, take him to the vet. Thanks again!
I thought you would like to see him. He is spoiled rotten and barks like a dog (he meows too). He died shortly after birth, but the original owner put his mouth over the newborn kitten's mouth and blew into it then squeezed it gently. After alternating this several times, the kitten started breathing again. Him and his wife fed it with an eye dropper for several weeks. They had a female golden retreiver who basically adopted it as her own. The kitten thought the dog was it's mother and slept on the dog. I received the cat a year ago because the original owner had to get rid of it because of medical reasons. When I picked it up, the owner told me everything about it, then said, "Oh... one more thing. He barks like a dog." I didn't believe him, but sure enough, he did it that night. He seems to only do it when I get home from work, or when I get up in the morning. It seems like an attention getting thing. Anyway, his name isXXXXX renamed him because I really didn't like his original name, which was Benny. Thanks again for your help.
