Many thanks to Joy and Melyssa for the tip on using oil to treat mange in cats. I too remember a vet telling me that before, but I had totally forgotten until Joy and Melyssa left the comments on the above post.
Bought this today.
I oiled Raven.
Gee whizz...an authentic Gremlin!
I did the head, ears and the two front legs (bald patches).
A real "kucing minyak" now!
She's still a bit wary of me because of last night and this morning when I caught her to go to the vet's. But she trusts me enough to come to me whenever I am in the porch.
Now, Bosco...is a different story. Either he has some past life affinity with me, or he's just good with all humans. "Super manja" would be an understatement to describe him. It's SO easy to do anything to him - feed him Vetri DMG, Revo him, forcefeed him wetfood, get him neutered, etc. Easy peasy...he must have been someone pet's before. I think he's so willing to please, you can probably get him to do somersaults, jump through rings of fire or maybe even ride a tricycle!
Ginger has become a regular in my porch now. Mr G? No, it rained tonight, so Mr G probably stayed home.
The three kind of get along, but Ginger still hisses at Raven.
This evening, Rosie was calling from outside the gate, so I opened the gate and went out to feed her. Raven was inside the porch and do you know what she did? She only went as far as the gate and stopped. She just stood there and didn't step out. Yes, like a well-trained dog who has won medals from Obedience School.
HOW do you train any cat to be so obedient? Given my brood (Bunny and gang), they would have run off somewhere. Pole and Tabs would probably be on some neighbour's roof, Indy would have run off to the playground. And all would "pretend" they are deaf and cannot hear you at all.
But Raven isn't going anywhere even with the gate wide open! And neither are Ginger and Bosco.
How does it work?
