Re: [Felvtalk] Sanctuaries

2011-02-26 Thread Frank Saverese
Hi Lorrie,

I share the same worries about my cats' care after my death as you. The two
best sanctuaries I have found are Cat House on the Kings in California
http://www.cathouseonthekings.com/  -where I would love to live myself, and
Tabby's Place in New Jersey http://www.tabbysplace.org/  Both of these
organizations have a true love for cats.

Finding a trustworthy sanctuary and arraigning life-care funding are
important. But finding a trustworthy person who will carry out your wishes
is most important and most difficult. That is the problem I'm having.

Best wishes,

Frank

 Thanks for all your very informative posts... They were eye
 opening!   Yes, Caboodle is an outdoor santuary, but my cats have
 always been indoor/outdoor cats, so this is what I want, BUT if
 it is over crowded, which is is bound to be if they have no limit
 on taking in new cats, I don't want any part of it!

 Otherwise my cats are used to being around lots of strange cats, as
 we have rescued cats all our lives, and they are used to seeing new
 cats around.  I hope to find a santuary where the cats can be
 outdoors in fenced in acreage, but NOT over crowded. This is probably
 going to be very difficult to find.

  They're probably not used to quantities of cats.  Check out the
  options in your local area, and ask what the procedure is when they
  take in and care for cats.  And for vet care-do they have a vet
  associated with thir facility? What is the age of the person
  running the facility and what are their future plans? Are your cats
  outdoor cats?  I think Caboodle Ranch is all outdoor cats.
 
  Just some thoughts-

Hi Natalie,

According to a TV special I saw about it, the whole place is fenced in with
cat-proof fencing.

 That is a great place!  But I still wonder how all those cats can be
 monitored and how they don't get out of therelogistically, I'd love to
 know how it's done! Natalie

Impossible. The virus used in the FeLV vaccine is a killed virus.  The only
vaccines that have a *remote* potential to cause disease are Modified Live
Virus vaccines.
