They aren’t little dots that fall off anything. My snowshoe leaves them on my bedding, the washer and bathtub. She never scratches herself. The other cat and our dog never scratch themselves and my husband and I have never been bitten and we never see a flea. Could this be anything else? We asked the vet and she didn’t seem concerned. Or I should say, my husband asked the vet and maybe he didn’t describe well enough.

Comment on How can I get my cat to tolerate trips to the vet? by Jacqueline http://www.paws-and-effect.com/how-can-i-get-my-cat-to-tolerate-trips-to-the-vet/comment-page-1/#comment-43611 Fri, 27 Mar 2015 10:19:26 +0000 http://www.paws-and-effect.com/?p=849#comment-43611 I’ve just read your comment Selina (and noticed that my last comment was posted at 3.08 am! I’m in the U.K and it’s currently 10.15 am here)! I take it that it is safe to give your cat valium as the vet prescribed it for your cat. I am on a valium prescription myself;would it be ok to give my cat, say, 2mg before a trip to the vets? I have asked them about sedating Lou and they said no way! (He wasn’t in the car with us, obviously).

My last trip to the vets with Lou (my cat), was horrendous. It was a 6 mile drive and she was so terrified. I will definitely try this method, beginning at least 2 weeks before her next appointment is due. Thank-you so much!

Comment on My cat won’t stop meowing. Please help before I lose my mind! by Whitneym http://www.paws-and-effect.com/my-cat-wont-stop-meowing-please-help-before-i-lose-my-mind/comment-page-1/#comment-43609 Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:30:44 +0000 http://www.paws-and-effect.com/?p=223#comment-43609 I have a Ragdoll too. It must be their breed. Every since I started my full-time job he has meowed and kept me up. I have not gotten a peaceful night sleep in 2 years. I shut him out of my bedroom – he meows and scratches at the door. I’ve tried everything listed to help with this- nothing helps! I’m at the point where I may start locking him in the garage of a night. I will feel bad but I can’t continue this way. My other cat does not do this at all!
