Dorlis, Yes they ask for a donation to support the kitties left to them but it is up to the individual - no set amount per cat. Here is the link to their web site. http://www.rustichollowshelter.org/ Check out the Safety Net program. Sharyl --- On Sun, 8/30/09, dlg...@windstream.net

Maybe it is not such a bad idea if checking out a sanctuary to ask how long the cats typically live. As well as how they are funded and what happens to the cats should something happen to them, etc. _ Windows Live: Make it easier

I do hope that Autumn gets better with the LTCI. If she comes back by any means from a HCT level of 4%, it will be quite a feat. Just a couple of comments. First, as far as I have seen, there is very little science to back up Imulan's claims. There have been no real trials, just short term,

I am a member of this list who doesn't get a chance to spend time responding to posts, but I would like to encourage those looking into sanctuaries to be sure to visit them if at all possible and that is a great idea about asking what happens to the cats or the sanctuary if the founders die or can

Thanks for writing about sanctuaries Carmen. You are better at articulating the major points than I was. Anyone traveling through northern IA should stop in for a visit at CW. What really impressed me was the accomodations made for special needs kitties. Sharyl --- On Mon, 8/31/09, Carmen

i've been mentioning for years that we, who are on the front lines of this, should write up a home visit protocol for sanctuaries, so that all the correct questions ARE asked each of us has different ideas of what is important, and it's so important for folks to recognize the difference

When I had this insane thought that I'd rehome my 2nd FELV + cat, the late great Romeo, I learned that its not easy--particularly over the phone. But the ONE thing that seemed to work real well is a vet reference. I found vets, or rather the office manager, pretty clear in their assessments.

Jenny it is wonderful to hear that Autumn is recovering. I am praying that TCLI will get her through this. We'll all be waiting for her progress reports. I know that many vets are suspicious of treatments outside of their parameters. My vet was turned off Imulan by their inability to give her
