Cat Car Travel - Is Traveling OK for My Anxious Cat?

Cat Car Travel - Is Traveling OK for My Anxious Cat? | Feline Health and News - manhattancats.com | Scoop.it

Dear Dr. Plotnick,
I want to travel, but my cat freaks out if I put her in the car or in a travel box. I recently went away for a week and left her home with someone to check on her. It made her insecure. She still won't leave my side, and when I go to leave, she howls. How safe is it physically and emotionally to force her to ride in a car for eight hours if she is so upset?

Easter Lilies and Felines: DANGER DANGER! KEEP AWAY!

Easter Lilies and Felines: DANGER DANGER! KEEP AWAY! | Feline Health and News - manhattancats.com | Scoop.it

Keep your cats away from lilies; an important springtime reminder.

The ingestion of lilies can cause acute renal failure in cats. Many plants are called “lilies”, however renal failure has been seen only with Easter lilies, Stargazer lilies, tiger lilies, Asiatic lilies, Oriental lilies, and day lilies.

 

All parts of the plant are toxic. Prompt, aggressive treatment is necessary for a successful outcome. Once renal failure develops, however, the prognosis rapidly declines; some recovery may be possible, but this may take weeks, and peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis at specialized referral centers may be the cat’s only hope.
