Subject: Ask Me About Home/Herbal Remedies

Written By: CatwomanofV on 05/06/09 at 12:22 pm

I am not a doctor nor do I play one on t.v but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express when I was in Philadelphia.  ;) :D ;D ;D

Ok, in all seriousness, this is about MINOR inflictions/conditions. If it is a serious matter SEEK MEDICAL ASSISTANCE.

Hey Cat! This question has to do with cats (since you are a cat lady, maybe you have a suggestion). My cat (Oliver Moonboots) seems to have caught a cold from my sister's cat Peppermint (I am watching Peppermint till August and he had a cold when we got him, he was from a shelter). Anyway...Beth took Peppermint to the vet and they gave him amoxacillin drops and eyedrops. He seems to be better now..but Oliver is not himself. His eye is infected, he has been hiding away by himself, not eating much, and puts up a HUGE fuss when we try to put the drops in his mouth. Is there anything else I could give him for this cold, besides the amoxacillian, in your opinion?

My advice is keep trying and if he doesn't get better very soon, I would take him to the vet.

Hi Cat!

Maybe you can help me. I was watching 16 Candles and I know that Molly Ringwald's character was eating carrots to try to increase her bust size. Does that really work? Eating a bunch of carrots? And if not, what does work?

Thank you!  ;D

Never really heard of that. Gaining weight increases it.

thanks Cat! He seems to be getting a little better. He's eating/drinking today...and grooming himself. So far so good! :)

I thought that I would bump this thread up with an interesting tidbit that I thought I would share with everyone. This is for those of you who suffer from allergies. The best cure for allergies is to eat a tablespoon or two of local honey a day. It has to be LOCAL. The idea behind this-honey is made from bees who gather pollen from local flowers. What are people usually allergic to? Pollen. Thus, by eating the honey, your body will build up immunity to the local pollen thus giving you relief from allergies. Try it. What do you have to lose (beside maybe your allergies). And besides, honey is yummy.  :)

I've heard this one and it makes sense.  Unfortunately I didn't do it and I am in the midst of the worst allergy attack that I have had in about 30 years.  :(

Go out and buy some local honey and see if it clears up.
