HELLO LAURIE,
THAT HAS BEEN ON MY MIND FOR A LONG TIME NOW AND I HAVE FOUND A RESCUE IN IOWA, 
CAN'T REMEMBER THE NAME NOW, BUT CAN DIG OUT THE INFORMATION IF YOU WANT IT.  
HAVE CHECKED THEM OUT AND THEY SEEM RIGHT FOR MY BABIES WHO ARE SPOILED, HAVE 
THE RUN OF THE HOUSE.  I KNOW I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FIND ANYONE WILLING TO 
TAKE ON 7 CATS WHOSE AGES RUN FROM 12 TO 1 YEAR.  MY VET BILLS THIS LAST YEAR 
HAVE BEEN RATHER HIGH, BUT I WILL NOT LET THEM SUFFER BECAUSE OF MONEY.  JUST 
HAVE TO TIGHTEN THE BELT AND EAT LESS. THEY HAVE AN OLD FARMHOUSE FULLY 
FURNISHED AND THE CATS EACH HAVE THEIR OWN CHAIR, COUCH, BED AND A SCREENED IN 
PORCH TO OBSERVE THE OUTDOORS.  THE NAME IS SOMETHING LIKE CEDAR HOLLOW OR 
CREEK.  SOME OF THE OTHERS KNOW ABOUT THEM ALSO.  I THINK THEY WERE BUILDING 
ANOTHER HOUSE FOR THE CATS AND SOMEONE LIVES ON THE PREMISIS TO TAKE CARE OF 
THEM.  I HAVE ALREADY TOLD MY PEOPLE THEY WILL HAVE TO DRIVE THEM THERE, ABOUT 
5 HOURS DRIVE.  THEY HAVE
 AGREED.  THEY CANNOT TAKE CARE OF THEM AS MARY HAD A STROKE AT AGE 49 THIS 
YEAR AND WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH ALL THE LITTER BOXES AND FOOD BOWLS.  I 
DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO WOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE THEM ON AND IT IS A BIT MUCH TO 
DUMP 7 CATS ON SOMEONE.  MY ONLY OTHER ALTERNATIVE IS TO LIVE TO 100 AND THEN 
WE COULD ALL GO AT THE SAME TIME.  COURSE, BY THEN I WOULD HAVE TAKEN IN NEW 
CATS.  CANNOT SAY NO TO STRAYS, DOGS OR CATS.

I do know that each state has it's own laws on the matter, but will bring it up 
to her.  Would she be allowed to join the website in order to do that?

I'd like to hear specifics about any issues with Best Friends.  Everyone I know 
who has ever visited them in person has absolutely loved the place.  And I know 
they do a huge amount of good and take on large projects that most other 
rescues could not manage.  (Like the 800 cat pahrump/FLOCK situation in Nevada. 
 No one else could have taken that on.)

Re: [Felvtalk] Finding homes for cats upon death

2010-12-22 Thread dlgegg
The trust issue is a big thing with 2 of mine.  Annie went through a lot when 
yher owner died.  i think the worst of it was not knowing what happened to her 
owner.  she had been an only cat for 4 years, sleeping on the lady's bed, super 
spoiled.  then she was locked up for 3 weeks with someon  coming to feed and 
change her box.  then put in a box and brought to the vet's office and then 
came to my house where she encontered another cat and 2 new people.  she spent 
the first 2 weeks in the basement, sneaking pu at night to eat and drink.
Nitnoy showed up with a bloody 4 stump of a tail.  took her to the vet for 
repairs and shots and spaying and then brought her home to 7 other cats.  I 
later found her tail in the yard and discovered it was a raccoon who did it 
when one showed up on the deck and looked in the window.  she went balistic and 
nearly killed me trying to get away from him.  she is still sensitive about her 
tail and after almost a year allows me to hold her.  That is why I think a 
place like Rustic Hollow would be good for my girls and boy, they have a home 
environment to live in.  I am also going to send a letter for each one telling 
about all their personalities, etc.  I am doing the letters now just in case.  
I am 70 after all.  I have also arranged with someone to drive them to Rustic 
Hollow.

Re: [Felvtalk] Cats not getting along

Glad I am not the only one with that problem.  Homie marked a rocking chair and 
an oriental carpet.  have to reupholster the chair back and when warm weather 
gets here, take the carpet out on the deck and wash it.  Amazing, I can tell 
which one has just used the box by the smell.
As for communicating, Harley climbs up your back when he doesn't get what he 
wants right away.  I wear sweatshirts, he can climb them and not the skin on my 
back.  hHe will also try to catch that thing on the computer screen when I am 
on line.  That gets my attention.

 comunicates differently. She will bat at me or scratch my legs to get my

 Right now there are five cats on my bed and it can be up to 7 maybe even 8.
 That is not to say they don't hiss at each other. Once settled they look
 like angel kitties.Mine arrived at different times as well. The hardest
 one to adjust is Daisy. She lost her BEST BUD during the feline leukemia
 crisis. She has only recently come around. She will never be an affectionate
 kitty, but she settled in. She will still mark given the chance,
