Thank you for mentioning those damn plastic can holders! I was going to
write about them myself.
Unfortunately it isn't just the kitties at my home that may have
problems with dental floss. It's the critters scouring the garbage
dumping grounds that

I live on the edge of a park and last Aug. I rescued a 4 mo. old kitten.
He had not been out there to long because he was in very good shape, I
soon discovered why he had been dumped in the park. Several times each
day he would pee on my bed. And YES he also used the litter box. I could
I learned something the other day I did not know. If a cat is vaccinated
against getting FeLV all its life it will test positive. So it could
very well be that a rescue cat that tests positive is not. This is what
my new vet told me. I feel this all the more reason not to put down
those that test

Hi, Most cities do have a Limit Law, but they also have a Special
Permit code. Any chance your area has one???
Hi, I have been rescuing FeLV+ cats and kittens for 14yrs. And other
cats andkittens that are not adoptable for one reason or another. I have
mixed my + - and in all these years only 2 negatives became positive
and the vet told me they may have been + but tested negative because the
virus was in
Hi, I think it is great that you foster. But you must remember this. Any
time you bring another cat into your home the Pecking Order will
change. And there will be stress on the part of the cats you already
have. If you can keep the fosters separate from the other cats that may
Hi, I use to have 18 cats in a 1 bedroom condo and they all got along. I
did have a lot of high furniture that they could get on the top of.
Anytime I wanted to introduce a new cat into the group I did it very
slowly. There were times it didn't workout so I had to fine another home
for said cat.
Over a period of 14yrs and a mix of cats, negative positive, only 2

Hi, Take them to the Bonanza Cat Hosp. in Las Vegas. Tell them that 2nd
Chance Cat Rescue in Alameda, Calif. told you to take them there. I
worked with them in Jan. to place 2 cats in a new home.
Hi, I live in the San Francisco Bay area. I will take one or both of
them if you can get them to me.
My Phone # is 510 522 4762

cats. Please mention that 2nd Chance Cat Rescue suggested you take them
to them. I worked with them in January to get 2 cats into a new home. If
you like you can call me at 510 522 4762
Hi, The 1st thing is to have a vet check it's eyes. If nothing can be
done to restore it's sight the vet may recommend that it's eyes be
removed. Blind kittens or cats can get along just fine. The maine thing
is don't move the furniture around. They don't have the mental hangups
than people do. I
Hi, When I was working I kept the number down to 18. am now down to four
(4). Now that I am retired, wheelchair bound, my max is six (6).
Thank you for the Pat on the Back.
The good news is when I had one of my cats at the vet today he told me
that very few FeLV+ cats show up anymore. And their
Hi, I believe I said I could take one (1) at this time. I was one of the
Founders of Island Cat Rescue, 11 yrs. ago. At the present time I am
a member of 2nd Chance Cat Rescue.
All the cats are kept indoors except for the patio that has Fence In
around the top of it. I have been taking in Felv+

Hi, If it is FIP you may be in luck as I was. I had 18 FeLV+ cats and
was fostering a cat that turned out to have FIP and had to be put down.
I sweated it out for several mos. and I was very lucky that to my
knowedge none of my cats came down with it. If they did they were able
to fight it off. My

Hi, If I read your message correctly that this kitten FeLV+ I will take
him if someone can get him to me, I live in the San Francisco Bay area
Hi, It cut way down on the number I saw. You will not fine dead ones.
They carry the boric acid back to their nest and then they explode. The
reason for that is they can't Fart
Hi, I agree with you whole heartily. I have had to say no as my limit
was at 18 and that is in a one bedroom condo. There are people who just
do not realize that they are in over their head. As for the dead cats in
her backyard...Come On The live ones needed the money and time. I know
Hi, I could not have said it better
That Hospital would have had to pay for their disposal. They do not
get to dispose the expired animals for free
Hi, Put the Boric Acid in the back of your cupboards where your cats
can't get to it. Roaches have been around for million of years and will
be here long after we are gone. I hate them too. When I lived i n San
Francisco I had an on going battle with them. I was afraid when I moved
out of the city
Thank you so very much for sharing with us. I can't speak for the others
on this list, but your sharing for me it has been a God Send. In 2
weeks I lost 2 of my + babies and these babies are very special. I
remember when they were being put down right and left. I started
rescuing them 14yrs.

Hi, You might want to print up some fliers that tell about the danger of
this product and not to use it and pass them out. Then enough people
might say something to the store mgr. he just might remove the display
or the entire product. If not your flier just might keep some people
from using it
Hi, It should be no trouble to take your cats with you. Lots of people
drive across country with cats. The first thing is you should not plan
on driving straight thru. That is dangerous to you and other people on
Hi, For the IV's, shots and examination you may want to try a Squeeze
Cage. If you can get the cat into a Trap then you can transfer it to
the Squeeze Cage. If you put newspaper under the bottom of the trap
you can keep a cat in a BIG trap for a few days.I don't know if you
know what a Squeeze
You can also get the same type of carrier (with wheels) from the

Hi, Have you tried to get the Meds compounded? I have mine done and
it makes medicating my cats so easy.
Yes, I have had all kinds. Also good news. The other day at the Vet's
the Doctor told me that he is seeing a lot less positive cats than he
has seen in previous years.
Hi again, I had one that lived 10+ yrs. They use to say that positive
cats did not live past age 3yrs. You must remember that some cats that
test positive could be carriers. I have had some die of things that go
wth Old Age. I do hope that every one of mine that tests positive
could be a
Hi, I am so happy you decided to go for an Ultrasound. Where to go from
here? My own experience has been to go with what my Vet has to say. I
have been rescuing FeLV+ for 13+yrs. and have been with the same vet for
22yrs. My Vet is in San Francisco and I live across the bay and there is
Oh, I am so sorry for your loss. She will never be out of your heart. In
the years to come you will remember special things about her. Plese let
these reminders be monents of love for the joy she brought into your
Hi, I have also been mixing my + - for 13yrs. and not one of my
negatives have become FeLF+
This could be because if the FIV+ cat (Licks) washes the FIV- cat and
then if the FIV- cat licks it's self on the spot where the FIV+ cat
licked him/her and said cat has a break in the skin in it's mouth it is
then possible that the FIV- can become FIV+
It has been my experience that 99% of FIV+ cats live to die of things
related to negative old cats
Some years ago when Hartz came out with Blockade Flea Tick killer.
This product was killing cats and dogs right and left. The Wall Street
Journal came out with an article about it on their front page. I made
hundreds of copies. First I went to Albertson's aka Lucky markets and
asked to see the

Hi, The medication used is in pill form, but the medication can be
compounded and applied to the ear flap (Not in the Ear) Cats can live a
long time using this medication
What I have used for many years are carriers wit Turn Locks Turn Locks
are L shaped that hold the carrier together. Often, while the carrier
is apart, I put the cat in the bottom part then just put the carrier
together. Then in the vet's I take the carrier apart putting the L:

Hi, When I sent the mesage about using a big sheet on your beds I meant
Instead of a spread,etc.
God Bless You for saving the dogs you could. Something a lot of people
do not know is that when several stray dogs get together they become a
Pack and often revert to behaving like a Pack of Wild Dogs and do
become very dangerous. The ones that do join a pack as an adult can be
fine as a pet when
Hi, I am 79 and a couple of mos. ago I took in a couple of 9mo. old
FeLV+ cats. I feel they may outlive me. I now have 7 and have made
arrangements that when I pass on that my cats will be taked care of for
the rest of their lives.
Hi, I have been rescuing FeLV+ for 12+ yrs. Some of them have passed on
in less then 12 hrs. after (as I refer to it) It has kicked in Those
of us whom rescue them are blessed as we get to share our lives with so
many cats that we want and love and release with love
I use Wooden Pellets that are made for stoves. I pay $4.19 for 40 lbs.
I just cover the bottom of the pan. By doing this you do not have the
weight of other litters. After they pee on it, it turns to silt
May I suggest that when you need to replace bedspreads but large sheets
with a pattern. From a distance they look like a regular bedspread. They
are also a lot easier to wash. I picked this hint up from a neighbor of
mine that has 10 cats.
Hi, I use to have 18 cats both -+ and I had no choice but to mix them
because I live in a one bedroom condo. To the best of my knowledge none
of my - became +.
Many of my + lived long enough to die because of problems that come with
old age. And then some of them died as young as 3mos. of age. It
Hi, I use Advantage in stead of Revolution unless my cats have ear
mites. My vet will not carrie Revolution because of the amount of
chemicals in it. To save money with the Advantage use the dog size with
a syringe, without the needle, and apply the amount required for the
weight of the cat
If you put chicken wire on the top the hawks can not get them. You need
to cover the top so the cats can not climb out of the enclosure
I am so sorry. I can relate to how you feel.
Yes..Cats do snoreI have had some nights when I felt I was trying to
sleep in a very large dorm. I have one cat that makes strange sounds
while breathing. I have had her for 5yrs. and she is as healthy as a
horse(as the saying goes) I whould still have your Vet check out your
kitty for the
Just because the cat feels better does not mean it is over the URI. This
can be a dangerous time if you do not continue with the meds. This is
why the doctors always tell to use all the medicine even if we feel
Please don't blame yourself.Tthere is a strong chance that even if you

Hi, Before I would gve her anything I would contact a good SPCA near
where you live. or a Vet College near where you live.
When I had cats that were indoor/outdoor I trained them to come to a Dog
Whistle. It is a very easy thing to do. Adjust the whistle to where you
can hear it. Then for 1 week blow the whistle each time you call them by
name, or call them to come in Like here Kitty Kitty. At the end of the
