If only people would spay/neuter their dogs and cats life would be so much 
better for them and we wouldn't have all the heartache.  If they cannot afford 
to do this, then they should not get a pet.  With pets as with children come 
responsibilities and if you cannot fulfill them, don't take them on.  It is not 
fair to them.  I wish I could take on more and children too, but the expense is 
too great and I have not won the lottery yet.  Children they make almost 
impossible to adopt so they end up all too often staying in abusive situations. 
 Life is not fair.

 Well the hearache just keeps on coming...London was a wonderful former Sids
 kid that had a chance to be in his own home since February.He indured having
 to lose a leag and a few other ailments,but he was a charming lovebug that
 always looked pissed.But was ALWAYS very happy,he just had the look. :) I
 almost adopted him myself back in January after losing my Xander.When the
 whole Wednesday night crew got wind of me possibly adopting him,there were
 threats of them all coming to visit EVERY wednesday. I was ok with that. But
 I just wasn't ready for another yet and wonderful Cheryl took him home
 shortly after.He was a great cat with a GREAT purrsonality...I love you
 London and I will miss you sweetie  :(

Today when I fed Hemy (she’s in a cage on my back covered deck) she ate while I

head.  No problem.  Then, when I came back to clean her litter box, I took a 
chance and placed my hand on the floor of the cage and remained still.  She 
moved closer, then nudged my hand.  I stroked her cheek and she moved her head 
around in obvious pleasure.  I petted her a few moments and she purred.  
This is a “feral” cat who has, after tail amputation and being moved from her 
familiar surroundings, been in a cage on my back deck for only Five Days!
I’d say she is more afraid and cautious than feral, wouldn’t you?
I’m keeping her in the cage for now, and will go slowly so she doesn’t feel 
pressured.  But what a little sweetheart.  It pains me to think of how horribly 
humans have been to her, yet she is willing to forgive and perhaps trust 
again.  Bless her!

 Oh she is not feral at all, she is simply a sweet kitty whose previous

 We thought SuzieQ was feral until she started letting us pet her and when
 Charlie (the other backyard feral) went missing about three weeks ago, we
 brought SuzieQ inside and she is quite happy to be living the good life in
 our guest bedroom.  She will soon be let out into the main part of the house
 to meet the rest of our Nuisance.  We have taken our goodwill ambassador
 kitties in to meet her already and they have all gotten along really well.
 By following my Cat Intro 101 instructions (I can email for anyone that

She might surprise you and stick around your house.  Where is she getting 
shelter, food and most of all love?  Bringing her inside might be easier than 
you think.  She has already accepted you and learned to trust you.  She might 
like being inside with soft furniture to sleep on and may even want lap time.  
Only thing, once she is inside, she will stay, you won't be able to let her go.

Hey folks, got an emergency with a possible FELV+ cat in Austin, Texas.
He's had one snap test (and that's with the felv/fiv/heartworm test, which
we know there are a lot of false +s with).  There is no one to hold him for
a confirmatory IFA.  

Someone wrote me asking for help, this is her description of him:

He is slated to be euthanized at 5pm today. This boy is very affectionate,
loving to be held, petted, scratched, etc. He was even purring while being
petted at the counter at the vet's office with all the strange scents and
animal noises going on! 

He's pretty sick at the moment. Vet says he's extremely anemic. That's why
he hasn't been eating much. And the heat has exacerbated the problem since
he's been an outdoor cat. Vet also says the condition is treatable, but the
treatment makes him very infectious. So what he needs is an indoor home
either in a one-cat household or in a house where all the cats are feline
leukemia positive. 

It's breaking my heart because he's such a sweetie. I'm hoping to find
someone who can provide a home for this baby so he won't have to be
euthanized.

I've asked for pics  etc

I also asked for an extra day which is hopefully being negotiated.  I know
someone on this list has room for a wonderful survivor of this horrible
Texas heat and drought.

I've gotten some wonderful kitties placed as a result of this list (just ask
their moms) so am hoping we can pull a rabbit out of a hat one more time!

Re: [Felvtalk] First Petting of Hemy!

2011-08-20 Thread Diane Rosenfeldt
I agree. Bonnie, you should stop thinking like a human (being caged is 
terrible) and start thinking like a cat (I feel safe and cozy in this enclosed 
place that is small enough for me to control). She doesn't mind the cage, 
really! Let her stay there and finish acclimating, or take the next step in the 
other direction and bring her inside. ;-)

I continue to be amazed by her progress.  I can't stand the idea of her in that 
cage for two or three more weeks.  I'm torn between buying a bigger cage (hard 
to afford right now) and releasing her sooner, say in 3 or 4 more days.  I 
think she might stick around.  My biggest fear is that she might try to return 
to my aunt's house, about 5 blocks away.
Im torn.

Today when I fed Hemy (she’s in a cage on my back covered deck) she ate while I 
was there.  I spoke to her and reached a finger through the cage to touch her 
head.  No problem.  Then, when I came back to clean her litter box, I took a 
chance and placed my hand on the floor of the cage and remained still.  She 
moved closer, then nudged my hand.  I stroked her cheek and she moved her head 
around in obvious pleasure.  I petted her a few moments and she purred. This is 
a “feral” cat who has, after tail amputation and being moved from her familiar 
surroundings, been in a cage on my back deck for only Five Days!
I’d say she is more afraid and cautious than feral, wouldn’t you?
I’m keeping her in the cage for now, and will go slowly so she doesn’t feel 
pressured.  But what a little sweetheart.  It pains me to think of how horribly 
humans have been to her, yet she is willing to forgive and perhaps trust again. 
 Bless her!

I have my first crate trained dog...he loves his crate and, even  
though rarely confined there now, puts himself in it for numerous  
reasons.


Both Copper and Thomas like there travel carriers, putting themselves  
in them when they want peace and quiet...or to tell me that it is time  
to go home etc.  Indoor cats find places under furniture etc when they  
want to feel safe.
