Managed to do this, a comparison between when they first came and a year on, the Sept 17 pic is the first time I saw Coco not in hiding, massive difference in her. Now she even asks for things (play, reading, treats!).

Glad things seem to have settled on the meds, and that her weight is stable.

That seems really reassuring Dawn.  I'd be happy to go with that too.   :)

tilly went for bloods at the beginning of the year, I chased up the results today and they say her creatinine is in the normal range, urea slightly up and weight stable so just to carry on as we are for now.  she seems fine in herself and tolerates the medicine very well so I'm happy to go with that plan

Thanks Tab, I hope you are right! It is strange having young cats, but they do fit under the ‘hard to home’ criteria. I do hope I get to see them grow in confidence, someone on CC said that maybe now the decision is made and the paperwork done that I have relaxed and that is why there has been an improvement – plus I now have more time after quitting my voluntary work. The girls amused me last night, then Lucy was being daft, it made me think that all 3 have ended up with me because they have issues that make them hard to home, but I’m lucky to have them. Yes, my neighbour has one too. You are more than welcome to come and meet them. It is odd not having to get insurance quotes, they are the first in years that haven’t had insurance. Finally got a pair of them together, you can’t tell on this but Chanel is purring – only being a slight floozy though.

Just Googled and came across this.

I usually get milbemax pills from the vet to ensure tapeworms covered.

Health & Behaviour General / Flea and Worming treatments

Hi
I've just recently got one of my cats a prescription to Advocate as he had possible ear mites.  I don't believe he did although we don't know what the issue was but it was treated with drops and they don't irritate him anymore, but I didn't realise that advocate was the only treatment available for ear mites and liked that it also covered fleas and worms.  However I can see from their website it doesn't cover tapeworm, and that the only treatment available for lice is frontline.  Confused.com!  Does anyone use more than one treatment to make sure everything is covered?
Thanks
