Really? I've never run into that, but maybe I just stayed away from them for other reasons. Sounds like they ae in it for the money. Because most of mine came from rescue situations, there vaccination status was unknown. I can't remember it ever being an issue when the cat needed help. Margo

While I don;t neccesarily disagree with your choice, I would keep in mind that some diseases remain in the soil for years (Panleukopenia is probably the worst). A rabid anial may well behave so differently that it will come on your deck during the day. Your decision, of course. Margo

Maya, I am so so sorry to hear this sad news about your cat. I can understand why you would be so nervous about ever vaccinating again. Thank you for sharing this. Shelley On Aug 14, 2014, at 3:20 PM, Maya D'Alessio mde...@gmail.com wrote: I know this is anecdotal, and not properly tested

Vets who have a boarding service will require vaccinations before boarding the animal, as will any boarding facility. Marsha On 8/15/2014 5:49 AM, Margo wrote: Really? I've never run into that, but maybe I just stayed away from them for other reasons. Sounds like they ae in it for the money.

TRUE, WE DO HAVE RACCOONS, SQUIRRELS AND POSSUM THAT COME ON THE DECK, MOSTLY AT NIGHT. HARLEY IS ALWAYS IN BEFORE SUNSET TO AVOID CONTACT WITH THEM. SQUIRRELS , ACTUALLY, ONLY COME IF THERE IS SUNFLOWER SEED FOR THE BIRDS. I AM MOVING MY FEEDERS OFF THE DECK MOSTLY BECAUSE THE COONS TEAR UP

[Felvtalk] Rabies Shots for Harley

2014-08-15 Thread Lee Evans
The regular rabies shot actually lasts up to 3 years for immunity. Is the bat still living in the garage with Harley? You should not vaccinate him every year. It's not necessary. Not all bats have rabies or carry rabies. If there are holes in the garage ceiling or rafters, get someone to patch

Harley leaped into the air and knocked the bat down; it was stunned but quickly recovered and flew away. I never saw it again. I'm not sure if it got back outside, or if it died in a hidden spot in the garage. I looked for it and also watched Harley to see if he noticed where it went, but he

What is it about the name Harley. Yours sounds like mine, a risk taker who leaps so high he hits the ceiling in pursuit of a moth. We have bats near us, but they have a large cave on a neighbors property where they winter over. It is protected from people so they are not disturbed. Harley

The rescue that I got him from had given him the name Sylvester, but he just did not fit that cartoon character. I made a list which included Lucky (he was cat #13!), Zorro, and some others, but settled on Harley, because he is black like biker's leathers, and he ZOOMS like a Harley Davidson.
