    Do You Let Your Cat Out?

    We built an outdoor enclosure for our cats, we still monitor them though. There are two ways for them to get indoors easily and we have a partial roof and large nontoxic plants for shade. It's also has a walk-in door that I use to sit out there with them. To be extra safe we rarely let them out...

    Wow, It looks like you and your family are doing an amazing job with these cats! Sounds like they are well on their way to complete socialization soon giving them the chance at having a forever home with the exception of little Scout who it appears has already found one! It isn't an easy task...

    It does take time taming feral cats, but they are young so it definitely can be done. I did tame three feral kittens in the hope they would go to a cat care group once they were adoptable. After spending time with them I just couldn't let them go, we kept them all. They were kept in their own...

    National Cat Day!

    Help! 17 Yr Old Cat

    I had a cat that was never a big eater and pretty thin so I used to give him tomlyn Nutri-Cal cat dietary supplement a couple times a week to give him a bit of a appetite. He lived to twenty I don't know if the Nutri Cal helped him live to a good age or not, but it didn't seem to hurt any and at...

    Cats And Strong Winds - Shelter?

    I would think something lower to the ground I'm afraid a very strong wind could possibly catch the top of cable drum and knock it down. Most likely the cat will find a safe area out of the wind on his own, animals do not like wind and they are good at finding ways to avoid it.

One of the worries I have when letting your pets enjoy the outdoors is stray dogs or coyotes. I have seen coyotes in...
