April 2015- Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease Explained

Hello Pet Parents,

We hope you enjoyed the Easter holidays and you were able to get some time off. Here at Divine Creatures we had our busiest day on record on the 2nd April with a whopping 28 admissions! Our highest admissions day on a single day. Much thanks to all our wonderful clients who organized the paperwork before arriving – the day went very smoothly and no one was kept waiting.
We currently still have a very full house with 62 cats holidaying in the resort and we have a waiting list for this upcoming weekend. Please remember to book in early during school holidays to avoid disappointment. It is definitely always worth while going on our waiting lists. Our waiting list does not work on a first on the list basis, but on a cancellation match basis. For example, if we have a cancellation between 24th December and 3rd January and you required those exact dates, you will receive first option to take the canceled room. Last year number 87 on the list got a place over Christmas!

Our last lot of kittens were with us for four weeks and unfortunately did not find a home. They are back at the Cat Protection Society where they will hopefully have a better chance at finding a home quickly. Thank you to all who shared their post and for all your wonderful efforts! We received a lot of phone calls, so sharing the posts are working at reaching people – please keep up the good work.

Our new kittens are just too cute! Luna and Ginny are two girls who can either go together or be homed individually.

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease – Cat urination problems

Cats are incredibly prone to problems with their lower urinary tract or bladder and for

March 2015 – Do Cats and Dogs get Arthritis?

Hello Pet Parents,

It’s the start of Autumn although it still feels like blissful summer days! With warmer weather comes the “joys” for our precious pets of flea, ticks, snakes and even heat stress. Unfortunately, even with the cooler weather approaching we need to still stay vigilant. It is important to continue flea treatments through out winter. If you are in a tick prone area remember there is no such thing as tick seasons anymore. And never keep your cats, dogs or children or any living animal in a car alone.

The highlight of our media attention became reality with Dr Harry Cooper filming a segment on Divine Creatures for the Better Homes and Gardens Show. It was truly wonderful to hear Dr Harry tell Jules that Divine Creatures was “the best cattery he had ever seen”, from such a well traveled and renown veterinarian who also owned a cattery many years ago.

We had a lovely success story with our two kittens.
A really lovely lady who had wanted a cat for a number of years but was limited by rental regulations, fell in love with this adorable duo and took them home instantly.
A huge effort was put in on Facebook for these two – Thank you to everyone who shared our post and made it possible to find a forever home for these kittens! We couldn’t have asked for a better home 🙂

Our new kittens for up for adoption are purring machines! These two girls will fill your home with so much entertainment and hours of fun – really adorable pair.
These 16week old girls must go together. Also one is all white and must be indoor cats only.
Is this you? Would you like to ditch the TV for these two characters?!
Please share the post to promote their chances of finding a forever loving home

We hope you have a very pleasant Easter filled with chocolates! Please always remember that chocolate is toxic to dogs and cats. Whilst cats do not usually like chocolate, some cats do so best to keep all chocolate away from your feline friend. Most dogs really love chocolate. They can sniff out chocolate during Easter Egg Hunts, can easily rip open boxed eggs etc. Avoid a costly trip to the vets and hide the chocolates from the pets!

All the best,
Jules & Dr Katie;

Do Cats and Dogs get Arthritis?

Yes cats and dogs get arthritis and it can be very painful for them. Arthritis should not be ignored with statements like “he’s just getting old.” While we can not make the arthritis go away, we can create a plan of action
