It was just a thought, but yes I remember she was that small she looked like a kitten....I definitely think she has put a bit on since then though!  ;) :Luv2: :hug:

Yes Tina was very very thin when I picked her up and she looked like a 6 month old kitten but she looks much better now in Moiras pictures  ;D

Looks like its gonna take a while for her to put on weight

Trigger has always been around 8lbs despite being long bodied and long limbed

every time the vet sees him she asks if he has always been so slim, but it has never been a cause for concern

he just doesn't eat more than he thinks he needs, and that is that - all I can do is make sure what he does eat is of good quality

perhaps Tina too will always be thin

Tina was wormed and frontlined just after I got her, three weeks ago, so she will be due again in about a week. The vet I saw today gave her a good going over and didn't suggest worms and there has been no sign of worms in her poo or coming out of her bum (YUCH!) I've had that before with strays I've taken in. As Gill will tell you, she was very very thin when she was rescued. I think she probably has put on a little weight but just has a ways to go. I cant really tell, seeing her every day and the weighing I did at home would not have been as accurate as the one taken today at the vets.  I thought myself that she has probably had kittens in the past but I forgot to ask the vet if she could tell.

i dont think she has ever showed any signs but cant remember when she was wormed.

Oscar never either apart from being thin....But as both these cats came from the same shared pen it was obvious they both had them as shared the same litter tray!  ;)

How often has she been wormed since you have had her now Moira? I know when I first got my Gigga and Oscar they had (oh god forgot the name now...Worms that look like spaghetti!  :sick: ) I had to worm them for 3 consecutive months to get rid!  :sick:

They were my two failed foster's btw.....Still here with me now!  :shy: :hug:

Gigga had a big tum so was obvious but you would not of know Oscar had them as he was thin!  ;)

I can't say for certain that she hasn't put on any weight because when I weighed her before it was with my own scales, me carrying her then me on my own calculating the difference - and no I'm not telling you what those weights were :) So, it wouldn't have been as accurate as at the vets. When I take her back in a month to be weighed again we will have a better picture of how things are. Despite being thin she does seem perfectly healthy otherwise. Most of my cats are male and very food oriented and somewhat chunky but the vet did say females are often more picky with food.

I'll give the cat milk a try. I asked about diet and the vet said just go give her more of what she is getting and not to give her a high protein diet as this could cause diohrea (cant spell, you know what I mean) Touch wood, she hasn't refused the chicken breast yet.

Does she like biccies and is she okay with kitten milk? Good way to get the weight on added with the wet food!  ;)

So she has aged again....prob with her being underweight she is looking so young bless!  :Luv2: :hug:

If she needs to put on a kilo, she will look very different but wonder why she is not putting on weight cos she is being fed well and is eating.

Naughty Glasgow cos those results should be back now.

Thanks for the update Moira  :hug:

Just got back from the vet's. Tina has had her second vaccinaton. I had her weighed and she is only 2.81kg. The vet agreed that this is underweight but not, she said, emaciated. She said that given her bone structure Tina needs to put on a kilo. I am to take her back in a month to check the weight again and, hopefully, if she is putting it on sufficiently we can go ahead and have her speyed. Generally, though, she said Tina was in good shape. This was a different vet and she agreed with the first one that Tina was between 1-2 years old, older than we thought. She said this was because she has her adult teeth and although they are clean there is slight tartar on the back ones. The blood resultsw are not back yet and the vet is going to chase this up with Glasgow on Monday.

Yes, I will have to see how she gets on with the motley crew upstairs. As well as ST & Mac there are the two scallywags, Rosie and Sophie, and Max, who is pals with Rosie and Sophie and plays with them thinking he's a kitten too.

I reckon that the time she spent in my cats carrier she had tuned into their vibes which said be fussy about food at all times and beware that humans try to poison you with inferior food at times :rofl: :rofl:

I haven't heard back yet about the test results although they did say it would be a few weeks. I guess any time now. She gets her second vaccination this Saturday so I will chase them up then. Can't remember if I mentioned earlier on here (my heads a shed at the moment thinking about poor Willow and Oliver) that I am 99% sure she was on heat last weekend. At least she was showing all the signs you guys told me about. So I will be approaching some of the local rescues here in Leicester to see if they will give me a voucher to have her speyed. I know a couple here that are very hot on the neutering. I will discuss with the vet on Saturday and book her in (unless said rescues require me to see another specific vet in which case I will see about that next week).

She is becoming very playful and alert although she is not the greatest eater I have had. She is very fussy and, apart from the chicken breast, will only eat pouches and the best biscuits and isn't particularly interested in food at all unlike my male cats who all stuff themselves at every opportunity. I think she will remain a lean cat although I am trying hard to fatten her up. She really is a little spitfire. So far, as well as the kittens,  she has met 6 of my other cats, all males topping the 5.5-6.00 kg mark. Its funny to watch these big chaps cowering away from her, the size of tuppence :) Its funny how they don't react to her nonsence at all but just back off and ignore her.

Apologies for poor pic quality, new camera phone is rubbish. As you can see she is accepting the other cats she has met although she can be a bit of a madam and is not afraid to send them packing if they get too close.
