    No Issues-Just wanted to say Hi to any old-timers

    I’m sitting here at my desk thinking about all the hours I put in years and years ago to these forums. I had to figure out how old one of my cats Baker is and instead of going upstairs and piling through files, I came here and did a quick search and found out immediately. So I didn’t want to...

    Please - One Of Our Own (hissy) Needs Our Help

    Hi Guys, Just wanted to ask you for your prayers on Friday morning. Pigeon will go for his (hopefully) last surgery on that day. They will keep him for a few days, because based on the past surgeries, it is two days after the initial surgery that his skin starts to swell and the sutures will...

    Please - One Of Our Own (hissy) Needs Our Help

    Thank you for posting this on behalf of Pigeon, I really appreciate it. This 2 year old Maine Coon boy is nothing short of extraordinary in every measure. Since Mike died in December, this kitty would not leave my side and the only reason he got outside over two weeks ago (and was missing for a...

    Cat With Ocd

    This doesn't have anything to do with diet, this is neurological, an imbalance in his head. Initially when he started the early behavior sucking big holes in woolen and flannel objects, we thought it to be PICA. But his behavior has amped up tremendously into bizarre behavior that borders feline...

    Cat With Ocd

    Hey Guys, My love and greetings to those of you who actually remember me and know who I am. I have been absent a long time but still rescuing abused/neglected cats. Our latest challenge at the sanctuary is a cat we called Trip long before we knew that he had issues. He and his brothers and...

    With time running out-

    Recently found out that the vet clinic we work with at the sanctuary is being sold. The vet debt is quite high and we now remain $375.00 off the mark. It is required we raise this money in two weeks time. For those of you who do not know me, I left this forum years ago (a place I truly thought...

    Just wanted to drop in and share

    The woman who has these cards recently adopted from us a kitten in need. I was introduced to her beautiful cards and am just spreading the word among animal lovers. It is hard to find good quality cat cards anymore and these would make great Christmas or Thank You cards! Woof-Gang

    Mom Cat and Kittens - Need Help!!

    You can grab the kittens by using a dark towel and move slowly and carefully. Don't get into a panic, they will feel your stress. Don't make eye contact with either one of them. Use the towel to guide them into a corner where they can't really escape from you, then carefully (and slowly) place...

    He never had a chance

    I met him for the first time two days ago. He was only 8 months old, this Russian Blue tomcat. He had been found by a cleaning company in a house vacated two weeks ago. They knew something was wrong and they called me. One look into the carrier where he had been placed and I beat feet to the...

    "Kumbulu" aka Tania

    I spent some time last night reading over our old posts and remembering those days when so many of us were good buddies on here. Some posts made me weep- who am I kidding? They all made me weep. There is a tribute to her on our website now-    The only thing I can say at...

    "Kumbulu" aka Tania

    First off, I know that she isn't a cat. But back in the day (and the old-timers will attest to this) she was one of the integral parts of this forum machine who saved many a kitten with her sage advice. She was also my Internet partner for years and we came together to create an article for this...

    Heartsick, cat attacked me and I can't part with him!

    Just to let those of you know  that when two cats are fighting you should NEVER directly intervene. You can get seriously hurt and find your cat taken away from you or worse. Grab a dark blanket and use it by tossing it over the fighting pair. Then take the blanket without touching any cat and...
