A heat/season is the time of a cat’s cycle when they are fertile and can get pregnant.
Hand rearing puppies can be very rewarding, but is a big commitment. Hand rearing involves keeping your puppies warm, regular feeding, toileting, cleaning, health monitoring and socialisation.
Diabetes prevents your cat being able to control their blood sugar levels. Blood sugars levels get very high, but their body becomes starved of energy. Symptoms include weight loss, drinking more, peeing more and low energy.
Having a blocked bladder (being unable to pee) is an emergency and can cause death if left untreated. Contact your vet for an emergency appointment if your cat is struggling to pee.
Cats don’t often eat things they shouldn’t, but occasionally curiosity gets the better of them and can lead to a blockage. String, thread, hair bands, rubber bands and tinsel are the most common items to cause a gut blockage in cats.
