Shoot, I said Melissa, but meant Caroline! Sorry about that. Is the medicine Metronidazole? Mine still have giardia:(:( I do have a lead on a foster for one more kitten though. I can't financially rescue any more, even if I could find fosters, because we are rapidly running out of money.

I have another question about so-called normal kittens. Does anyone know approximately how much weight they should be gaining each week? Mine are June babies and I want to do a more accurate/better job of monitoring their weight and how much they should be fed. I find the instructions

This is my final question I promise. But it's been looming over my head for a long time now and it's really distressing me. I know I have told you all that my street has neighborhood 24/7 outdoor cats that technically belong to a lady a few houses up from me. But all the neighbors kind of

TAKE HER! I was feeding my Romeo for 2 years before I brought him inside. I did so only because the temperature was going to below zero and the creeps whose house he lived under boarded up his access so he had no shelter. It took a few weeks of him in a large kennel in my bedroom propped up on

Well, that is how my Monkee eventually became. He was living outside, but likely belonged to someone before (he was neutered). But Lil Girl is different because she's not afraid of even ONE thing! So she definitely doesn't have that timid, scared feral thing going on. Monkee was afraid of

I'd have to agree with the take her camp on this one.  I have this adorable girl that wandered to my house after I moved in.  I call her Whitey. :)  She's a gorgeous domestic longhair, with one blue eye and one brown. She's adorable, and sort of just moved in when I did and hasn't left.  All

Yes,..she actually loved Monkee. She never narrowed her eyes at him or hissed. She truly liked him. Over time they became buds thru the barrier of the porch between them and I really felt she conforted him and provided him company in the last months of his life when he wanted to do nothing

Carolyn, you never really know with cats, but MAYBE some of Lil Girl's Queen Bee attitude would dissipate once she got inside because in THAT hierarchy she's the new girl in town. Then again, maybe not, but it does happen. Also, if you take the time to go through the socializing protocols

It's that transition of taking her with me that I am so concerned about. I want her to be happy and I don't want her to be overly aggressive towards my wimpy kitties. Izzee with no claws (I didn't do it!) is such a concern b/c she thinks she has claws- so she will swipe instinctively when
