    Feral in my garage

    Yes, Whenallhellbreakslose, I have considered that! It is so hard to tell. Every so often he doesn't eat much, but he could have gotten a bird or mouse. And, the times his appetite was off was primarily during the summer months when outside hunting is the best. I do think it would be best for...

    Feral in my garage

    I did call Tabby's Place and while they were very nice, they were not taking in any ferals at this time. They told me that are only taking cats that are going to euthanized and need a place to go until they can be adopted out. I would love to have Oscar stay under my care. I had assumed he...

    Feral in my garage

    Whenallhellbreakslose - I too, live in the northeast. If you can recommend any sanctuaries let me know. I do think it may be possible to trap Oscar again with the box trap - but I have to know what I am going to do with him if I am successful. Him not eating or moving or eliminating for going on...

    Feral in my garage

    Yes .. . he is a looker that is for sure. Solid black, long-haired and fluffy, with yellow eyes. It was love at first sight!

    Feral in my garage

    That’s awful about the feeder dumping cats on you. Like my experience with the rescue that held him in a trap for a long time - people who say they love animals can run hot and cold. Or be super unreliable and then the animals suffer. I didn’t realize sanctuaries were in the thousands of...

    I agree! I just need to have a plan in place when I try to trap him again. Like where in my house and if he doesn’t eat - what sanctuary he can go to immediately. I can’t get into the same situation I was in before and have to let him go.

    Feral in my garage

    For the main protagonist in my novel - the most important thing to her is her gray kitty Mr. Bellows! He’s an important part of the story. As important as any human! Re Oscar - he’s doing ok and working in feeding him slowly into the trap again.As the weather turns - and I can trap him - and I...

    Feral in my garage

    Most people are such a mixed bag . . but it seems that loyalty is less and less these days. People seem more self-absorbed. To love someone and then one day "Whoops, sorry, don't love you today" is nuts to me. It seems we are more loyal to ferals that we try to help than some people are to...

    I know Glendale - used to go to an astrologer there when I lived in Cali. And yes - I’ve always wanted to date a vet whose hobby was carpentry!! LOL

    Thanks tabbytom! But I don't want to get my hopes up after the fiasco of trapping him. I am just praying that I will be able to trap him again and he is safe until then.

    Feral in my garage

    I would LOVE to have a catio built for him. That is what I have wanted all along. But I have to find the right house - trap him again if possible - and transport him when moving - and then have a catio built. I pray that I can do all of that and trap him again. At least I have learned that he...

    Feral in my garage

    For anyone still following the situation with Oscar, things are somewhat back to normal. Although last night for the first time ever, I was able to sit within 8 feet of him while he ate his dinner. And this morning he was under my car in the driveway, laying on the little comfy mat that I put...

    Feral in my garage

    I want to hear any and all plans. Please keep them coming. It's so hard to have had him in my house and now he's outside again. But he is eating and seems OK - just a bit skittish.

    Feral in my garage

    That would be the best solution so he could stay in his territory. But gosh, I would love to be able to trap him and try him in a more quiet place away from my dogs. I am not ready to give up on him being with me.

    Feral in my garage

    Yes, and when I opened that window this morning I felt sick. I didn't want to. But not drinking . . . dehydrated cats feel like crap and so the longer he went the worse he would feel on top of the stress. I didn't want him to get sick since going to the vet or having one come here would be...

    That is great to know about those trap covers. Thank you. I will keep trying and I agree, I have got to know where I am going to put him. I may be moving 7 hours away and so it's going to be tricky but I am going to do my very best. He is still here and so all is not yet lost. I have to believe...

    Feral in my garage

    I’m sorry. This has been hell for me and I tried so hard. But no bodily functions for 4 days in a healthy cat was very scary to me. No water or food or movement. I did the best I could at this point and didn’t want him to get sick like you didn’t want your girl to hurt herself. It’s so hard.

    Feral in my garage

    My beloved senior I had found him dumped in the woods with his litter. It was winter and they were tiny black kittens. They were not feral - they were clean and cuddly but dumped in a cardboard box in the middle of the woods. Anyway- that was 18 years ago. He was a true gift - the sweetest...
