Our “Ask US Anything” is a series of posts on the site where I share the questions/concerns/ideas that readers have sent in and then the responses from our readers about those questions/concerns/ideas.
Oxygen for Cats
Carol wrote in, “I’m writing to ask if you have any information about setting up at home oxygen for cats. My sister’s 11 yr old Ragdoll cat, Cashmere, has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and is having increasingly frequent episodes of shortness of breath which responds to oxygen at the vets. They have been advised to get an oxygen tent at home and are having a great deal of difficulty finding a tent they can afford and even in securing the oxygen. The medical supply places they call have never heard of oxygen for cats and unfortunately the vet is not helping them at all except to write a prescription for the oxygen.
I’m wondering if you have any information at all that would help her as she is devastated and anything you know would be very welcome and appreciated.”
“I am sorry to hear about your sister’s kitty.

Please do check the link again in 24 hours as more people respond.”
In-Wash Fur Removal Products
Barbee wrote in asking, “Amazon has several listed but few reviews. Just wondered if you’d tested them. Would love to get more cat hair off my clothes in the wash! Floating Pet Fur Catcher Thanks, Barbee”
I replied, “I have not – yet! I have them in my own Amazon cart though! I have also wondered about the FurZapper”
