    Rehoming Outdoor Ex-Feral

    Thank you all! I’m going to let my friend know that there is a chance he will be tough to adjust, but that if she’s up to put in the work then that’s great but if not, that’s ok too. I think he will be ok eventually if she is open to working on him.

    Rehoming Outdoor Ex-Feral

    Thank you! I think at this point I am also trying to decide if he’s ready to go to a new home. For additional information, he spends a lot of time inside with me. He likes sleeping next to me and doesn’t mind me handling him. That’s why I was so surprised that he seemed so scared when I...

    Cat randomly started pooping (now peeing!) right next to the litter box

    If rinsing doesn’t work you might want to consider getting new litter boxes too. Good luck, would love to hear how you resolve it!

    Rehoming Outdoor Ex-Feral

    Great suggestion on the tranquilizer. I will share all those tips with my friend. I’m just a little nervous because she has never owned a cat before and wanted a dog, but can’t have one in her apartment with no yard, so she decided to get a cat and I was thinking of rehoming him so it seemed...

    Rehoming Outdoor Ex-Feral

    Great idea about the scent. I wish I could keep him - I just don’t know how to make it work with the other cats, and she is offering to give him a good home so I figured it’s probably better than him risking being outside, right? I will tell her not to let him out and warn her about hiding...

    Rehoming Outdoor Ex-Feral

    Hi, I’ve posted a few times about my adventures the past year with a feral mom, her 4 kittens, TNR, and providing for them. After TNR, mom and 2 kittens stopped coming around. During the winter storms I brought 1 kitten inside to live, and the final kitten who did not go into the TNR trap...

    Cat randomly started pooping (now peeing!) right next to the litter box

    My cat has done this behavior twice (like two separate periods of weeks, years apart. She is 13 and has never really covered her poop in the box. Both times she started going next to the boxes and didn’t stop even when I cleaned the boxes out multiple times a day, I ended up throwing out all...

    Why does my cat get a red swollen lip?

    Does anyone know what causes a red swollen bottom lip? This happens to my cat every so often. Should I be worried?

    Feral kitten and senior resident cat

    Thanks for your response! RC will hide in her closet or other safe space when the kitten is in seeing distance. I have followed the methods suggested with slow introductions, but It has been about 6 weeks and RC is just adapting very slowly. In addition to the hiding, RC has developed...

    Feral kitten and senior resident cat

    Hi everyone, I posted in February about how I had my feral family TNRed right before the big winter storm. Mom and two kittens still haven’t returned since the bad snow. Two kittens stuck around - one of them was too smart for the trap so hasn’t been fixed and one of them was fixed. These two...

    I think I found my lost indoor cat after 3 years living with a feral cat colony - will she ever be the same?

    I realize it isn't the same but I had bean separated from my cats who lived with my then husband for 2 years. One of them did not like strangers and we had gotten her as a kitten. He passed away and I took the cats back. They knew me right away and immediately were at peace being with me, even...

    Feral kitten trust?

    Good news - she came back to eat already. I opened the door and she didn’t run away, but then I left the room and she also decided not to come back inside. At least she’s coming around, so I can try a drop trap when it’s warmer. Is 6 months too old to try to tame and socialize?

    Emergency shelter for a cat in this weather? Help!

    I made one from a Rubbermaid container and styrofoam cooler. You put the cooler inside the container and cut a 6 inch hole in the front, and use straw for bedding. I put duct tape on the edges of the holes to keep the cooler in place and also make sure they don’t hurt themselves on the cut...

    Feral kitten trust?

    I have a 6 month feral kitten outside. I TNRd her mom and 3 siblings but this one wouldn’t get in the trap. Since it’s been so cold I’ve been leaving the door open a bit for her to wander in and out and warm up for a few hours. Here is a picture of her in the cat tree from my nest cam...
