    My little feral princess

    Wow she is gorgeous! My 14 yr old big grey/white boy Martin would love another girlcat besides his 4 yr old Calico terror who plays way too rough. Soon she will be in your arms purring like crazy. Nothing more rewarding than turning a feral into a people lover.

    Both my cats have loose stools

    Same thing happened to my three and I think it was a bad wet food can. Heat waves and cat food in shipment don't mix. I tried a little bit of plain Kefir without any added sugars but maybe they dont need all 12 of the probiotics in it? Check with vets on this. It resolved the smelly butts by...
