I find it almost impossible to wrap my mind around the devastation wrought by wildfires in California. My heart goes out to all the victims, but of course, I especially feel for the cats who are lost and injured in the fires. We recently featured Buttercup, who ended up in three different shelters while her humans were displaced by the Camp Fire. Today, I’d like to introduce you to 13-year-old Luke.Continue Reading

Shade is an almost 2-yearold Domestic Shorthair who shares his home with Stephanie, her husband Aaron and cats Ripley and Lucy in Camp Hill, PA. Shade was rescued from a feral cat colony as a kitten, and Stephanie adopted him when he was 4 months old.

Shade was a very quiet cat, and he had bad breath. Stephanie tried brushing his teeth in hopes it would help. His breath smelled better for a week or two, but the effect didn’t last. He also didn’t take to brushing very well. She tried dental treats, but he didn’t eat them. Shade also got a prebiotic powder to help with some intestinal issues.Continue Reading

This post is sponsored by Assisi Animal Health*

Lisa Turner adopted 8-year-old Hubble earlier this summer. Hubble is a tripod. He had hiis right hind leg amputated as a kitten after it was crushed, most likely by a car. Hubble gets around quite well on three legs, but hopping around on his remaining back leg puts a lot of asymmetric strain on his back. As a result, he has pain in his lower back that he just learned to accept.Continue Reading

Daisy and Pam: How the Assisi Loop is Helping an 18-year-old Cat with Severe Arthritis

We previously featured 18-year-old Daisy, who belongs to Pam Wheelock and her family. Pam is the founder of Purrfectplay. Five years ago, Daisy started having difficulty urinating and defecating. She was diagnosed with severe hip arthritis and spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the open spaces within the spine, which can put pressure on the spinal cord and the nerves that travel through the spine.) Daisy’s spinal nerve impingement causes her to retain urine and bowel material. When there is a big enough volume, the “stretch reflex” allows her to empty her bladder/bowel. “Daisy had no idea when this might happen,” says Pam. “It used to happen even when she was sleeping.”Continue Reading

Josh-Assisi-Loop

This post is sponsored by Assisi Animal Health*

11-year-oid Josh was rescued from a city shelter, where he was brought by a good samaritan, by Best Friends LA. He most likely lived his entire life on the streets, as he was in extremely poor health. His fur was filthy and matted due to lack of grooming, and he was underweight. Josh had a multitude of health issues: chronic renal failure, severe dental disease with resorptive lesions, a heart murmur, muscle atrophy related to his kidney disease, and weakness and lameness, especially on his left front leg, which slid out from under him when he was walking. Josh is FIV positive. Continue Reading

How the Assisi Loop Helps Cats With Arthritis

This post is sponsored by Assisi Animal Health

When your cat is sick or in pain, there’s probably nothing you wouldn’t try to get him or her to stop hurting. Unfortunately, treating pain in cats is often challenging. For starters, cats are masters at masking pain. Then, once pain is diagnosed, there are very few medications that are approved for long-term use in cats that don’t also carry some serious risks.

As an alternative to pharmaceuticals, many cat owners have turned to non-drug modalities like Reiki and acupuncture.  Another therapy that is garnering more widespread use is targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (tPEMF™). This therapy can benefits cats with pain associated with arthritis, pancreatitis, wounds, or post-surgical swelling as well as many inflammatory conditions.Continue Reading
