Re: [Felvtalk] seeking home for adult feluk positive

2008-10-31 Thread Sharyl
Kelly, how does one go about finding a a list of sanctuaries for pets to list 
in ones will.  I have a combo of healthy cats, CRF kitties, and FeLV+ kitties.  
I'd like to make plans in advance.  At 61 I can reasonably expect to live for 
many years but there is always the chance of accidents, unexpected illness, 
etc.  How does a person plan for something like this when it might not be 
needed for 20 yrs?

This is a good thing to worry about.  Our rescue has a program which takes
in animals if someone suddenly dies (the Nod Fund), but we can't take them
all in.  It is far better to make preparations.

[Felvtalk] Essential oil for calming cats

2008-10-31 Thread MacKenzie, Kerry N.
Dear all

Does anyone know anything about the safety of using essential oils in a
kitty household? My aromatherapist friend says:

There seem to be two schools of thought, one of which (internet) is
that essential oils in a diffuser can be too strong for cats, but that
hydrosols (also called hydrolats or floral waters) are safe to use,
simply sprayed into the air.  
The other source said that a single drop of essential oil [sweet orange]
in a diffuser was useful to calm cats.

I don't think myself that a drop of essential oil in a diffuser could do
cats much harm.  If this was harmful, I'm sure it would be well known.
I've never seen any warning about not using a diffuser if you have a cat
- or two!

Thanks! Kerry M.

I would never put a drop of essential oil on a cat.  There probably are safe 
ones to use but the majority are harmful.  I don't know about using a 
diffuser.  Some cats are sensitive/allergic to fragrances.  It would depend on

Re: [Felvtalk] Essential oil for calming cats

2008-10-31 Thread MaryChristine
my understanding is that cats aren't able to break down the actual oils
themselves in the same manner that other species are, so that they act as
much more powerful concentrates--there are safe and effective ways to dilute
the oils into various forms that aren't harmful (they've been years for
centuries, after all, especially for pest-relief), but you can't just assume
that one form will work for each oil.

so i'd go with the no direct contact, and look information on the specific
oil before making it into any sort of a topical (the new line of paul
mitchell flea shampoos contains tea tree oil, which is considered toxic to
cats--in a higher than, i think, 1% concentration.. so you really DO
need to look around.)

i'd check out WELL-ESTABLISHED herbalist sites, or someplace like
www.holisticat.com, rather than any place that SELLS the products. just my
bias. and then do a search for lavender essential oil toxicity in felines
or something similar, just to see what comes up.

i've never, however, heard that the diffused oils are harmful, tho there is
always the question of the plug-in diffusers and whether THEY are safe.

Just a word of advice, watch where you wind up leaving your cats.  If it is to 
be to an organization, I would suggest you become active volunteers of the 
organization NOW and keep up a face to face envolvement throughout the rest of 
your life!
   
  By volunteering I have gathered intimate knowledge of an organization that I 
once thought was wonderful...and grew to knew it to be a place were I wouldn't 
leave a bug, much less a loved one, but you'd NEVER know it to visit or to read 
the newsletter.  
   
  The more I volunteered at different organizations the more I have become 
convinced that as I go through life, I (and I'm only speaking of myself here, 
not passing judgement on anyone else or meaning to preach) have to be certain 
to only take in as many animals at a time as I have friends and relatives to 
take care of them should something happen to me.  Even then, there is no 
guarantee.
   
  But if you are active, involved physcially NOT just financially, you will 
make contacts with others who have the same interests and concern as you do.  
Then, even should the organization take a turn for the worse, you still have 
personal contacts who may take a personal interest in your cats and do 
everything in their power to make certain they get a fair shake...even if the 
organization is full and can't take any more animals at the time you need them 
to.
   
  Remember, being physcially involved can be a low stress as you need it to 
befrom just visiting every week or so, to perhaps groom or play with the 
cats being sheltered to answering phones to working the occasional weekend 
adoption events.

Tamara, good advise.  I'd love to volunteer at an organization that provides a 
final home for cats.  My problem is I live in a rural area in VA with no 
sanctuaries within 100 miles.  The local SPCA is pretty worthless when it comes 
to cats.

My plan is not to leave them to a sanctuary, but to the Stevenson Companion
Animal Life-Care Center at Texas AM University.

Vet students live on the premises to care for them and they also receive
great care from the University's Vet Medical Center, which is right next
door.  You can leave any excess money that is not needed for their care,
should they cross the bridge before their funds run out, to whichever
medical program you want - for me it would probably be studying feline heart
disease, for yall it would probably be studying FELV (depending on how they
plan to study it, some of the studies have been...not good).

I do not plan to leave to relatives, I have seen too many relatives dump the

don't want to be too obvious here, but do a search (use goodsearch, and
designate YOUR favorite feline charity!), and type in, making arrangements
for your pets after you die.

there's a rather famous book written on the subject, but of course, my mind
can't quite recall the title--i'll write to someone slightly younger who is
more likely to remember. sigh. (we did a chat with them a few years back
on www.pethobbyist.com.)

also, rita at purrever ranch (http://www.gotcats.org/) has a sample form to
help you write up something to go over with your lawyer.

along with the warnings that others make, GO OVER IT WITH YOUR LAWYER, and
do NOT assume that
your state's laws even allow you to leave money/property/whatever to your
pets. and make secondary arrangements as well, because you probably don't
want to know how many people who promised to take in mom's cats and love
them forever drop them at the kill shelter on the way to the cemetary.

(or stick them in a room for four years with food, litter and water, and NO
attention, because they PROMISED mom they'd keep them together--see my two
little shaded silver persians in the front room. been here for over a year
now; mom is 11 years old, all 4-declawed, and will let me pet her; daughter
is 9, and still TERRIFIED..)

Re: [Felvtalk] Seeking homes for cats after death

2008-10-31 Thread Laurieskatz
Friends of mine have CW Rustic Hollow Shelter (a sanctuary) in Iowa. It is
an amazing place where the kitties are well cared for by a group of
employees and visited every night by the women who run the shelter. Every
kitty has access to a screened in porch area off their particular building
or living space. These women have been at it for a number of years and
know how to keep things clean and provide a stimulating environment for the
kitties. Check out their website for info about sponsorships and estate
planning (best to consult with them first, of course). One woman built her
own building there for her cats (paid for by her estate).

wow, is carmen on this list? i've never heard anything even slightly bad
about CW, and as those in rescue know, that's fairly umcommon. i didn't
realize, tho, that they had estate-planning info. thanks! (especially
because i can NEVER remember the actual sanctuary name)
