very sorry at not keeping you updated.

Bubz is not quite back to her sleek black-tipped fur, but the bottom layer isn't as white as grey and the grey is growing into black. The vet gave her some Zylkene capsules and squeezing her anal gland.

Bubz proved me wrong (this time anyway) by eating every scrap of food that had had the powder from the capsules mixed into the wet food. OK, I was giving her that in her late evening food but no morning was there any scrap of wet food in her bowl.

Hi Helen,

How's Bubz doing now?
In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this.

Bubz is over licking

She's stopped squawking, thankfully, but from the mid/late Dec she's been almost over-grooming. At first it was very nearly aggressively pulling clumps of fur out of her tail, flank and one back leg. I took her to the vet who gave her a steroid jab which worked well for a while but then it started again resulting in another vet visit plus another steroid jab. The second one's not been very successful, compared to the first.

The vet also suggested diffusers like Felliway Optimum. When she took up  residence here I tried what's probably being marketed as Felliway Classic but Bubz didn't respond in the way I'd hoped. What are your experiences?
