Hello,My 11-year-old cat has just come into the house, and

Hello, My 11-year-old cat has just come into the house, and she has lost the last inch of hair from the end of her tail; you can see only what looks like white string, which I imagine is the bone? In addition, we can see small spots of blood on the floor where she is walking around. Although she seems a bit nervy, she has just scoffed her dinner, so does not seem overly traumatised. Will the bleeding stop, or does she need treatment from a vet and, if so, how soon should we take her? And finally, is it likely the hair will grow back? Thank you in advance, Claire JonesUpdate: the end of her tail has gone from white to red with blood...

We think our cat had a seizure last night, he was lying on

Hi, we think our cat had a seizure last night, he was lying on his side, and all legs were jerking, he had saliva at his mouth, think it lasted about a minute as we were sleeping and were woken up by it. He was making a strange miaowing for a few minutes afterwards but seems fine now, just wondering what could have caused it? Thanks. JillAssistant: I'll do all I can to help. Seizures always look scary. Let's get you talking to the Veterinarian.

He's usually v lively eats more than any other cat - tries

He's usually v lively eats more than any other cat - tries to eat sellotape even = about 22 months (RSPCA rescue from July). He was on the sofa & had been sick on his blanket when I saw him 11.30 this morning. Jumped up to eat when other cat fed too, but sniffed food & left it. Other cat ate bit from both bowls. He's been on the same sofa all day (usually his into everything), v listless, now breathing more heavily & quickly than usual. Vomit was creamy coloured with what appeared to be small mammal intestine in. He regularly catches mice, rats (and frogs in the summer) his breath doesn't smell any different.Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the cat?Customer: just that he's usually lively, but he does always tend to flop down & just sleep wherever he is - usually on his back with his legs in the air! He's had all his shots, flea treatments, etc....Due for worming this week
