Re: [Felvtalk] Rescue work

 Kelly does rescue work and had a shelter-environment set up with a number of 
kitties.

A few years ago someone thought she was not taking good enough care of them, 
accused her of being a hoarder,  got the authorities involved.

Best Friends - although they knew of her  her rescue work - did not come to 
her defense.

It did not turn out well for her.

Re: [Felvtalk] Finding homes for cats upon death

2010-12-23 Thread Debbie Bates

Yes, my Portia came back to me (I had fostered her when she was trapped  
pregnant)...she was part of a group of 20 cats dumped behind a local library 
when her human was evicted/foreclosed on...she was in pathetic shape and we 
were unsure any of her kittens would survive.  Long story short, I was with her 
when she delivered three precious little bundleswho eventually went up for 
adoption.  Portia was deemed unadoptable because she was terrified of humans 
and would lash out at anyone who violated her personal spaceso she was 
sent by the rescue group to a sanctuary in South FL.that I was assured 
was wonderfulimagine my horror a month later when said sanctuary was 
raided and shut down by law enforcementunsanitary, no medical care, 
experimentationsugh.  I immediately contacted the group that sent her there 
and told them I was going to the place the next day and they had BETTER have 
contacted them to arrange for me to take her back.
During her month in that sanctuary she had lost another pound (she was 
underweight to begin with), had a broken canine and respiratory infection, and 
was even more traumatized than when I had first taken her in.
She has been with me now just a little under a year since that dayand 
actually allows me to pet her now.  She was NOT unadoptable...she just needed 
to find a home that had a bit of patience...I now consider her one of MY 
cats...but worry about her if something happens to me.  I am only 56...but you 
never know how long your time on earth will be.  I am busy trying to set my 
affairs in order that I will be able to provide for my 10 babies if I should 
die before them.I wish there were a sanctuary similar to Rustic Hollow here 
in Floridaor that I could win the lottery and start my OWN sanctuary!

 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.

   Lorrie, that is something I lay awake at night worrying about

   forin July I was hospitalized for almost three weeksthank
   goodness my husband was able to care for them (well, as much as he
   could)but I hesitate to do any more rescue work because I am
   not a spring chicken any more...and who will take them if and when
   I die? Some of my cats came from very bad places and have trust
   issuesmost are not very friendly to strangersand I don't
   make the kind of money where I can provide a lot even IF I could
   find someone I could trust...I'm not sure there is a perfect
   solutionwe just do the best we can.
  
  I know exactly how you feel All of my 14 cats, with the
  exception of 2, are afraid of strangers, which is the case with 
  most rescued cats or rehabilitated semi-ferals.

With even more, chances go up - but we've been lucky since they are not all
together. But our cat groups definitely exceed the number 8 in each. =^..^=
