Ditto, I do a ton of work with ferals and best to trap the kitty asap to work with if there are hopes of socializing. Sure you can make friends over time but the feral kitten mortality rate is very high so best to bring in and will also make the chances of true socialization much more

They make a pad to put under nursing home/hospital patiences that is washable. I used some several years ago with a dog who was in the process of leaving this world. Another thought is the odor of the litter. None of my cats have ever accepted frangranced litter (they have all been

Wendy, since Pepper is healthy I wouldn't bother putting any opening in the tote. I use the large Rubbermaid totes for litter boxes. Mine just jump in them. As Leroy got into his late teens, he had trouble getting in the tote. I just put a small rubbermaid stool next to it. He used that

While everyone is talking about totes: They make nice shelters for cats, especially if they are insulated and filled with pine needles (Mom's ferals and four of my cats all came from a pine thicket) or straw. On Jun 29, 2009, at 9:19 AM, Sharyl wrote: Wendy, since Pepper is healthy I

can u put the box in the bath tub? You need something as high or higher than the opening. I use large storage bins for liter boxes,and believe me, they can jump in them. regards, Cathy --- On Mon, 6/29/09, wendy wendy2...@yahoo.com wrote: From: wendy wendy2...@yahoo.com Subject: Re:
