The cat's eye is cloudy... can you still see the eye, or is the third eyelid down over it? If the vet had the opportunity to examine the cat and says its allergies then that's more likely to be correct that what I can say here. However, I can tell you that allergies aren't something you usually cure all the way so that would explain the recurring symptoms.

Sometimes the experts seem to get really busy. I've noticed the same thing at my other groups, where it will be months and then they will come on. Keep in mind that I don't believe the experts are paid, they are doing these replies on a volunteer basis and there has been less and less support for these boards over the four years I've been here. I miss the experts too.View Thread
Definitely let her out of her crate more often, on a regular basis, because it sounds like she's having trouble being in her crate for that long. Dogs have an instinct to keep their dens clean so she will try to get rid of the mess the only way she can. It probably won't hurt her to drink urine but it's not a good habit for her to get into. Better to give her more frequent breaks and make sure she always pees before going into the crate.View Thread
Clean the litter box carefully so you can see if he is producing anything. Also watch for any signs of discomfort. He might have some discomfort in his rectal area, and that could be causing him to raise his tail. If he hasn't pooped by the time you read this, get him to a vet if at all possible.View Thread
I have one cat who likes bits of cheddar. She doesn't like sharp or extra sharp, only medium cheddar. I knew a cat once who absolutely adored green beans (would beg for them) and cantaloupe.View Thread
I just got two grooming gloves and wanted to share my experience with them. I have a floofy long haired calico and a slinky short haired tortoise shell. Unsurprisingly, the short haired cat sheds like a fiend and the long haired cat is more moderate about shedding.
One glove I got has patches of Velcro like material (the hook side) on the palm and fingers. That one is better for the long haired cat, as it turns out, and she really seems to enjoy being petted with it. It isn't very aggressive, but detangles pretty well.
The other glove is more like a mitt and has little rubber nubs all over it. Oddly enough, the short haired cat did better with that one. Petting her with that loosened hair pretty well, then a follow up pet with bare hand did a good job of clearing the loose here off.
Both cats were a bit discomfited but I think they will get more used to it as time goes on. The long haired cat learned to enjoy her new enhanced pettings faster than the short her cat with her nubbly mitt.
The glove was about twelve dollars and the mitt was about seven. Not too bad, really.View Thread
There are some natural remedies out there that are plent based. Keep in mind that just because it's from a plant doesn't mean it's perfectly safe. I have seen results from diatomaceous earth, you basically sprinkle that on the floor and vacuum it up. It cuts the fleas and eggs microscopically. Flea combing is good too. You can also put the earth out in the yard. Some of the natural insect remedies contain pyrethrins, which is a substance found in chrysanthemums, I believe.View Thread
