My 13 month old tabby fell into a container of diesel, he's become really ill and my husband has took him to emergency vet. Does anybody know if he is likely to recover from this? We would be heartbroken to lose him
Dido - in fact we have a selection of cat jumpers at Celia's that people (in my head 'little old ladies' but actually I've no idea who) have knitted for our cats in that position. But yes, really they're only for shaved/ bald cats, and of course those pedigree cats that are bred to have no fur (I've completely forgotten the name of the breed) wear them all the time.
mrsjob she's doing fine thank you. Her wound bled a little during the week (it's healed perfectly at the top, but the bottom is not quite so good) but back to the vet's tomorrow for sign off. She is perfectly well and happy (and bonkers) in herself.
What fantastic news - both about Whitey & about your neighbours! I hope the dogs are removed from the neighbours (& ideally the evil creatures banned from ever keeping animals again, too).
You can put Whitey in a babygrow while he is baldy? I know people who've done that with cats to stop them getting at stitches...
There's a pattern for a cat sweater here & one for a tanktop too. There seem to be quite a lot of patterns for knitwear for small dogs kicking about the place that I guess might work for cats too?
thecatneuterer: I love that there's a team of people (I suspect you're prolly right about the demographic involved) somewhere knitting jumpers for baldy kitties. If I could knit, I would absolutely join their ranks.
cozie I feel v sorry for sphynx cats too. It can't be fun being a fur-free feline.
Glad to hear that DodoCat's doing ok Dido - I hope she's completely better soon.
