Thanks for that information.  But I think I've finally solved the mystery of 
the 
Pee Spot!  Lucky frequently spits up.  He'll be fine for days, then have a bout 
of spitting up almost clear liquid, 3 or 4 times a day.  I mentioned to the vet 
he spits up and the vet seemed unconcerned, saying cats are very susceptible to 
gastric upset.  I now think the spots on the bed were not pee, but spit up.  
I'm 
not sure if this is a serious issue; I'll mention it to the vet again.  But 
having him spit up rather than pee is a little easier for me psychologically, 
at 
least!

 Also pee doesn't smell much when a cat has kidney failure - just FYI as 
there'd
 be other symptoms (drinking a lot for example) and also it's at an advanced
 stage that the pee doesn't smell anymore, because the kidneys can't clean the
 body of toxins so it doesn't smell.
 
 I don't think this is the case, but just so it's out there (I had a kitty that
 lived with kidney failure for quite a while) also it wouldn't make the cat
 incontinent or explain why he's peeing where he sleeps.

 If it isn't drool and it is pee, and doesn't smell, that could imply urinary

We had actually set up a Foundation, but now find that we will change it to
a Fund instead.  Advice from lawyers was non-existent, I had to find out the
hard way.  We are also thinking of leaving the house to someone who would
continue the work, but again - how does one trust someone to do that - and
who should oversee it - it's not easy. What really gets to me, as a rescuer,
is how relatives of someone who dies could just ignore their pets, whether
it's one or many!  I get those calls, and always ask your mother, aunt,
uncle, etc. loved the pet(s), don't you feel some kind of responsibility to
care for them?  It falls on dead ears.  When my mother died, I couldn't take
her cats because they were elderly, used to their spaces, some very skittish
rescues...I tried contacting Chicago rescue groups, not to place them, but
to see if anyone there might be interested in taking care of them.  Two
young women and a man from a well-known group (Treehouse) happened to be at
a conference on the East Coast, and came to be interviewed. All seemed fine,
until he found out that there was a basement and that he could play his
drums thereneed I say more? Through a friend, I found a woman who had
her own 12 cats and needed to move - bingo!  There's only one cat left now,
and I could easily bring him here, but at almost 18, Arsenio is too old, and
I might as well wait until he dies without disrupting his life. I also
contacted veterinarians in the area.  The thing to watch for is someone who
wants free boarding and may not take good care of the animals.  There must
be someone to oversee them, too - but who?  A lawyer who doesn't know squat
about cat care?  We have the cats and dog in our will, but there are so many
details to think of, and you know that something will be forgotten! Whenever
I get a call from someone whose relative died, all of this comes into focus
again.  And I don't have all the answers.  Maybe we could all pool our
thoughts on this

 My parents left me enough money to comfortably provide for

 care for them? I have three grown kids and grown grandkids
 and all of them love cats, but they have a bunch of their own.
 
 I would like to find someone to move into our house and take
 care of them. I'd even give them the house, and it's a very nice
 house in a resort area on a lake in the eastern mountains of WV.
 
 So far in my will I've left 1,000 per cat to help them find
 good homes, but how do I know someone won't take the money and
 dump the cat?
 
 I worry about my fur babies constantly. They are my life. If

Re: [Felvtalk] VooDoo is missing

Put a trap out, line it with newspaper and cover with a blanket or sheet.  Put 
some food right outside the trap, leading up to it and in the back.   Also put 
some of your dirty clothes around it as well as some of his dirty litter.  If 
you have another cat that he is bonded with, put it in a carrier and place it 
outside so that VooDoo can hear him/her crying.  Often that will bring them 
out.

worry about and the speed limit on base is extremely slow.  My greatest concern

death trying to get him to bring him inside.  (He hasn't been out since he came 
to us as a five week old kitten)  I'm worried that he might be afraid to come 
home.  


It breaks my heart to think of my little kissing bandit, hungry, scared and

where 
I suspect he is hiding puts it out for the few strays.  This is such a heavy 
burden for me and I am not taking it very well.  Please just send your positive

I would do all of those thing, AND perhaps get an automatic trap with food
inside.  If Voodoo comes to you, please scruff (just in case) and pick up at
the same time, because of being afraid.  If you can lock away other cats, I
would definitely leave a door open.  The problem might be, though, that
Voodoo might run out again when you come into that area, unless there's a
safe hiding place normally used by Voodoo.
The same thing happened to us when we lived in England, a guest kept the
door open too long and our cat Lucifer ran out.  Can you imagine this crazy
American going around the neighborhood, calling Lucifer in the middle of the
night?  I decided to call Lucy instead...after some deliberation.
We left the door open, I sat in a chair in the hallway, and he came back at
about 4 AM.
I bet he was under the hedges that surrounded the house all the time.
If there are any bushes around where you live, that might be the best bet to
look under.
Good luck!  I'll be thinking of Voodoo and sending a message to go home!

If possible keep a bowl of his favorite food on your steps/porch so even if
he stays out a little while he will get food.  Also when you put the food
out make a big production of it by either banging the can a few times with
the spoon or rattling the bag so he knows it's there.  Keep the house quiet
as possible and at night keep as many lights off as possible.  Given how
spooked he is you may need to catch him in a trap to get him back inside -
keep food outside in the same place for him as this will be he location of
the trap if needed.  If you do see him outside just you go out and sit
quietly to see if he comes up to you.  If he does approach you just take a
minute or two to pet him just as if you were inside and when you can do it
easily (almost naturally as if you were inside) pick him up (hold him tight
as even though this it is you just picking him up may scare him) and bring
him inside.  Not sure if you have other cats or if it is possible but if you
can leave a door open by the food you put out so he has a chance to just
slither back into the house on this own.  Many positive thoughts are being
sent your way.  Hugs, Elizabeth

Lots of good advice--given this kitty was already spayed, is a cleft palate 
himi (many cleft palate babies do not survive), this was likely someone's 
pet.   some of the cats at my colonies who have been most standoffish were 
sweet once we got our hands on them.

Was she scanned for a chip?  I would definitely do this.

She may of course be abandoned but also could be displaced/lost.

Most of the chipped cats I find do not have up to date contact info and I've 
had to do detective work, but because the chip info isn't up to date doesn't 
always mean the cat doesn't have someone who loves  misses it.

So many don't have/need homes, it is worth the effort I believe...most turn out 
to be deadbeat owners, but there could be a kid in the family who's been crying 
for months over their lost pet--I have had this situation before where we 
really didn't think the cat had a good home, one never knows.  I say this 
knowing that most do end up being deadbeatsbut, not always, or at least, 
there might be one person in the family who does care and deserves to know the 
kitty is alive and have a chance to claim.

Just thoughts, I've had recent situations in this regard--please pardon if I 
missed something that clearly indicated the cat was abandoned (like people just 
moved out, etc.).

Good luck and thank you for helping her!!

Hi Bonnie,

I would try to bring her over to your house, but not directly outside.

Do you have a small room @ your house you can use for a few weeks?  If so, you 
should keep her in there - with litter, food  water  a place to hide (large 
box with hole in it  some towels will do just fine) while you get her 
accustomed to you as her new care giver.  Go in there everyday to be with her 
- even if you don't touch her.  Stay in there for at least a half-hour  read 
something out loud (normal voice) so she can get used to hearing you. 

If you decide to name her - use her name over  over when you go in to feed 
her.  Praise her for being a smart  strong kitty.  etc.

Then after a few weeks, leave her in the room, but with a screened window 
cracked open a bit, so she can get used to the new neighborhood smells from 
inside.  That way, when you do finally let her out ( put her box outside too) 
she will already be familiar with the surroundings  won't be so apt to bolt 
or run off.

Good luck!  It will be worth the time  the effort!!!

Wish I would have thought to ask this yesterday!  Now I’m literally an hour 
away from needing to decide.
 
The problem is that my aunt (who’s tame housecat I took) also had a “feral” 
living in her large yard.  The cat showed up about 2 years ago, and for the 
past year I believe the cat has pretty much been a resident there (her only 
source of food?).
 
Yesterday I trapped her and took her to Forgotten Felines, the local and 
excellent TNR organization.  Guess what?  She had already been spayed.  That 
means some (fill in the blank nasty term) ‘person’ had just abandoned her!
 
So here’s the dilemma:  if I release her in my yard, she’s in a strange 
place.  The only thing holding her near will be my good heart.  If I take her 
back to my aunt’s house (which is to go on the market soon) god knows what 
will happen, where she will find food, and the next ‘trapper’ may not have as 
good a motivation as I do.
 
I see it as 50/50 for this poor cat.
 
But what would YOU do?
 
Thanks for your thoughts.

 Is there a paypal address that can be shared publicly (like on facebook) for 
 donations?  It might help a little if there were a 501(c)3 rescue who will 
 allow donations to be sent to them, noted for Karen's work, that will then 
 purchase food for her (since people are often more inclined to donate to 
 501(c)3.
  
 If there is further contact info that can be shared on fb, let me know and I 
 will.

 Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, Karen and I have both worked on this 
 problem, I on the computer and Karen asking friends, rescuers and others for 
 some help, mostly to no avail. The TNR group here is San Antonio Feral Cat 
 Coalition. They do not have a shelter situation so get very little cat food 
 donations. They have already contributed to her as much as they can but as I 
 said, she has to feed these cats every day. She is getting free TNR 
 certificates from Animal Care Services which is out local kill-everything 
 shelter but the city came on board with kicking and screaming when we were 
 trying to force the TNR idea into the animal laws. They finally accepted it 
 when public opinion soared in favor and the local newspaper printed several 
 articles in support and against what was taking place at the kill shelter 
 (gas chamber). But that still leaves Karen without a car and without money 
 to buy one if she doesn't get some donations to help with the cat food. It's 
 not organizations I'm asking now, it's just individuals who can spare a few 
 dollars to call in to Petsmart, Pet Supplies Plus and Petco to get her gift 
 cards on file so she can purchase the cat food with at least a little help. 
 She also has rent and utilities to pay, which is sucking money out of her 
 paycheck and she is not eligible for any steady help from anywhere else 
 because she has a job. 
  
 Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty 
 neighbors  too!

When I was a child, I got ringworm and my doctor (an old vet who went to 
Vienna and trained for people meds) used gentian violet on my head.  It was 
purple, but got rid of the ringworm.  Ever since then, the hair on that part 
of my head is curlier and thicker.

 When we took in a cat with ringworm, the first vet prescribed an expensive

 different vet who gave the cat a shot of antibiotics and recommended we use 
 lime sulfur dips. It took a while, but it did clear up. The dips are messy 
 and stinky, but effective.

 Good luck.

Cat is now testing positive.  She was never tested as a kitten although her 
parents were and her littermate was. She has never been outside although one if 
the cats in the house did get out for about a week.  That cat and all other 
cats in the house have tested negative.  So is it possible that the cat that 
got out brought it in the house but still tests negative and this cat was 
exposed and is now positive?

 also, a previously 'negative' cat could in fact have a latent infection which 
 does not show up.  This can go on for potentially years and later turn 
 positive when sick/stressed.

 Sure, if the cat got outside or are otherwise exposed to other cats. Not all 
 cats coming into contact with a positive cat will contract the virus.Plus the 
 virus can take 90 days to show up on a test. You'd have to be more specific 
 about the circumstances - when all the cats were tested, what kind of test, 
 are the cats indoors/outdoors?

 Never heard of it and I've been researching sanctuarys for years.
 Do they have a website?  Make sure they are legitimate and also
 charge at least $1,000 UP  (mostly up) per cat as the ones who 
 charge to little for the lifetime care of a cat will usually end
 up with too many cats and get shut down.

 A good Samaritan found him outside being abused by children and limping. 
 Unfortunately he has tested positive for FeLV (feline leukemia) and we have 
 no place to house him. FeLV is very contagious to other cats so he needs to 
 be an only cat or with other FeLV positive cats. He has through the end of 
 the week to find a home. He needs someone to step up ASAP if they are able to 
 help. Contact c...@homelesspets.com -Brooke
