Thanks for everyone's advice. I need to leave the dry food there at all times 
because  I feed the cats meat during the day and pick up the plates so as not 
to leave food around.  The dry food in the station is there so that the cats 
have something to munch on all day long as well as if they get hungry later or 
the next morning in case I can't make it there to feed them that day.  I have 
tried feeding the cats only the meat once a day and they are too hungry the 
next day.  They need some kind of staple food.  Dotty

Hi there - anyone out there - does anyone know how to construct or how to 
keep raccoon out of an outdoor cat colony dry feeder?  I am feeding 7 outdoor 
cats and now there is a raccoon in the area eating all the dry food every night 
in the dry food feeding station.  I feed the cats by day some meat and throw 
away the plates when done.  But the dry food is a staple food for them which 
they need to supplement the one feeding I give.  Also, in case I can't get 
there to feed them.  Any suggestions?  I have seen some constructions on line 
but the cats have to jump up to get into them and there is one older cat I 
don't think he can jump up into anything!  Please let me know.  I know this has 
nothing to do with leukemia, but it does have to do with helping cats.  Dotty -

Had to send this again because it bounced back the first time.  I hate it when 
it does that.

Ha, ha - I love it!!!  You sound as pissed off as I was.  Believe me he is on 
my shitlist too.  I was boiling about it for days.  Matter of fact I was just 
telling my co-worker about him this morning and I got pissed off again thinking 
about it.

I guess he just wanted me to take her home and watch her die.  I don't know.  
He never did go as far as to say that exactly because I said I wanted him to 
give her fluids and do a blood test and then e-mail this other vet so I could 
get this experimental drug for dry form of FIP.  I didn't give him a chance to 
send me away with nothing.  Course, at the time other than the fever she was 
doing okay.  Although she was wobbly on her back legs she was still eating and 
everything although she had lost some weight.  So she wasn't in any pain.  But 
I think with a temperature of 104 he would have wanted to do something about 
that anyway.  The
 thing is that like toxoplasmosis shows the same symptoms as the dry form of 
FIP and if it was that it could be treated with some antibiotics that aren't 
even that expensive.  He's such a dumbass.  I didn't know that the symptoms 
were the same until a couple days later and when I asked him about it he said 
he had thought about it when he was looking at her.  So if he thought about it 
and didn't suggest a test for it then he didn't care.  He figured with FeLV 
she's going to die sooner or later so why spend money doing any kind of tests 
or treatments on her.  I'm surprised he didn't suggest killing her.  BTW - it's 
not euthanization unless it's to end suffering so at that point it would have 
been just killing her.

I like your answer about doing what you do for the animals.  I'm going to steal 
it.  Most everybody just thanks me for helping the animals (I feed ferals so I 
run into different people that see me
 doing it plus going to adoptions, etc.) but every now and then I get someone 
who asks why I do it, as though it's a bad thing or beneath me or something.  
I'll use your answer for those folks.  It's probably better than what I 
normally say to them, if you know what I mean!

What the hell is wrong with this vet, that he didn't even want to help a little 
helpless suffering animal feel better? And he has the knowledge and power to do 
just that!! I'm baffled. Not tooting my own horn by any means, but when people 
ask me why I do what I do for animals, the only answer I have for them is 
"because I can, and that obligates me".  I make no money of course, but I spend 
plenty. I guess it all boils down to caring enough. That vet would and is on my 
shitlist and I don't even know him.
