Hi, Shannon --

Maybe this is old info for you, but for some reason Kentucky Fried Chicken
-- skin and bones removed, served warm -- often lures stubborn kitties to
the food bowl. Obviously one of those herbs and spices is catnip... Also,
I've recently heard that Friskies Temptation treats are like kitty crack. In
my experience our cats can take or leave them...like anything we *think*
they'll love... But some people on my feral cats list have been saying they
work well, at least for their (trapping) purposes.

Best wishes and calming-down vibes for Whimsy, and have a great holiday.

Diane R.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Whimsy - check up results

hi everyone,
Whimsy went for his check up yesterday and we didn't put him under this
time.   However, he went into 'frozen' mode, and it stressed him greatly. He
was very well behaved, just petrified.  He is very angry, depressed,
scratching on his doors to get out today. He was yowling this morning at the
doors.   He hasn't eaten yet today either - just sniffs and walks away.  I
am not a big fan of vaccines in general, and was very torn, but ended up
getting him rabies only, because he is a flight risk still.  I don't know if
his demeanor is a 'mild' vaccine reaction, or a stress related one, or
both.  He does not seem to have a fever, although he's not a kitty I can
easily check this on; gums are healthy color.
I am deeply grateful that his blood work was perfect (did a full panel); I
did repeat snap test, just in case, and the FeLV was positive still and FIV
negative.  His heart/lungs sound good, and his mouth, etc., look just fine
as well.
I just talked to my vet and she will call in a cypro rx if we need it  and
is available all through the weekend for us (we love her!!) (though he might
be a nightmare to pill, ditto with syringe feeding). I know all the other
tricks, so I will let him nap for awhile and see if I can tempt him at
dinner time.
wishing you and your furbabies a Merry Christmas, Shannon and Whimsy
