home for middle-aged cats by carolyn
I have a baby and need to find good and loving homes for my two dear cats. They are a mother and son. Both are neutered/spayed and declawed. Both are indoor short-hair tailless cats. They are approximately 11 and 12 years old. If anyone in Massachusetts or southern Vermont/New Hampshire are...

Trying to tame a semi-feral by Shana Cooke
Hello, I'm trying to find out information on how to teach a semi-feral cat to like being picked up (or at least tolerate it). I adopted a semi-feral from the humane society about seven months ago (she is now 13 mo old), and in this time she has stopped hiding, and usually comes up to me at night...

Shutting Down? by [email protected]
Well, the colony I've been caring for for the last ten-or-so years seems to be losing its population pretty dramatically. I'm not sure what's up, although there have been many coyote sightings in nearby communities. I've only ever found evidence of a coyote attack on the cats once,...

Another Princess video.

Crosspost--stray outside cat question by MauiJNP
Hello. I recently had a stray older kitten (definately not full grown, I am not sure of age though) take up residence in my shed and my yard. I have never owned a cat, much less an outside one. If it turns that no one is missing her (flyers are out) then she might be able to stay here...

Kittens with tremors - Long Story by Rhonda
Sharon told me about this newsgroup, so I thought I'd post our situation. We took in a stray cat who turned out to be very pregnant. She delivered 5 live babies, and 1 that was not born alive. I noticed one kitten seemed less coordinated or weaker than the others at 2 weeks old. From then on, I...

We have a stray in our neighborhood who we are caring for. You cannot get near him anyway :-( Unfortunately we are unable to take him in at this time, due to finances and our other 5 kitties, one who was just Dx with CRF. It seems "Whitey" is living in a cement drain at the rear of our property....

Fixing the Feral Problem:What Does, Does Not Work by Bret Ludwig
Does not work: TNR. It only slows it down. As the colonies age their members die off (even without active removal) and new cats come in, being unfixed, and breed profusely. Feeding the cats. Boy, that's a no brainer. If no one fed them on purpose the die off would be much higher. Education. Cat...

Weeble Update, Week 1.5 by Magic Mood JeepĀ©
It's been about a week since I posted about Weeble, the abandoned kitten that I'm hand-raising. He's gone from less than 6.5 ounces to almost 10, his eyes are over 1/2 open, and his appetite has increased from 6cc per feeding to between 13-15cc per feeding (and that's every 2-4 hours). He's grown...

16 day kitten, eyes not open by Samantha G.
I have rescued an abandoned kitten. I am worried that the eyes are not open yet at 16 days, even though her ears are up and she is hearing. Her eyes show no sign of opening. I have had many litters before and always the eyes are open by a week and a half. Does anyone know the longest that it...

FIP by formerly known as 'cat arranger'
We're taking of two feral kitties and haven't thought about them infecting our other cats. What is FIP and how is it transmitted? It's obviously not like HIV which can only be transmitted through body fluids, so why to they have such similar names? It is confusing. The kittens are about 8 wks. old....

Suggestions About Rescue Situation...Please by Luvskats00
3 1/2 weeks ago, I contacted a rescue group about adopting a cat (listed on a Petfinders site). The founder of the group is well known, locally. She was profiled in the major newspaper here. Two of the people assisting her, however, were incompetent idiots. I had dealt with them, first,...

Umbrage by [email protected]
Everyone at work knows I am the one who feeds the cats on the grounds. It's practically a joke. I spend about $300/month on food and supplies for these animals. I have, with the help of others NOT in my workplace, spent close to $2000 trapping, testing, vaccinating, altering and releasing these...
