Thanks, Gloria. I guess "regular" vets don't clip the ear because people would freak out about how their cat looks. Forgotten Felines, our local TNR organization (filled with Angels, by the way) did clip her ear. She's now on my porch (we're having a cool summer, oddly enough) and seems okay. I am beginning to really like her. Tonight I sat out in the beautiful, nearly full moon evening, drinking a beer and singing to her (I make up a song for all my cats -- this one was about how Hemy had a hard life but came through alright anyway and now things are better). I'll feel better is she won't "shun" me -- right now she turns her back on me or hisses, letting me know just how mad she is about this whole thing. Poor darling! Tonight I tried to buy her love with canned food. We'll see how that goes! ~B.

Course this depends on your having the right weather, or a porch with the right temperature and protection, etc. You might also be able to find someone who takes outdoor cats, who will do the same thing, to keep kitty put up for a while so that she learns where home is. I gather they didn't "eartip" to show that kitty was altered, unfortunately. Good luck with your kitty - Gloria _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
