Are you thinking about a new kitten? The GCCF has produced a press release and check list which you may find helpful.

The Kitten Checklist has been launched to help owners avoid heartache.  Twenty animal and veterinary organisations have come together to create The Kitten Checklist aimed at equipping prospective owners with guidelines on adopting or buying a kitten.  Please see the links below

       THE KITTEN CHECKLIST


 

ALERT RE ORAL FLEA TREATMENT

The GCCF has recently received a report of the sudden death of 2 BSH cats a few hours after being given the recommended dose of a flea treatment containing an insecticide called spinosad. A third cat died suddenly two weeks after dosing and there are internet reports of some dogs and cats experiencing side effects of severe sickness and fits. It is a prescription only medicine and taken by mouth rather than applied to the skin. If you have concerns after reading this please discuss your methods of flea control with your vet.

Please share this with your friends and club members.

 

 

In case members are not aware, there is a cat killer around
who also mutilates their bodies before leaving the remains on the doorstep.
There are more details here in the leaflet - with a reward offered for information leading to the arrest
of the perpetrator. Please be aware and keep your cats safe - especially at night.
If you prefer, you could contact our Welfare Officer or our Chairman

 

 

 

Does your cat/kitten need genetic testing for carrier status of various diseases, or whether it carries identified genetic colours or other genes? If so, the Langford Veterinary Laboratory can help. http://www.langfordvets.co.uk/diagnostic-laboratories

The Kentish Cat Society has a special discount of 20% off the advertised prices for fully paid up members. Please contact our Secretary for the special discount code to be used when applying for any test.

The 20% discount could more than pay for your annual subs!

If you're not already a member and would like to join, please apply for membership here kcs@metallicat.com

 

As from 1st October, 2014 the GCCF will be implementing the EMS (Easy Mind System)
