here is a facebook page that should be kept up-to-date on the rescue efforts: http://www.facebook.com/caboodleranch.savethekitties
I took pictures of all the cats on January 27...plus the three goldfish. Not an easy feat! Most of the cats still have their winter layer of fat on, which disappears once the weather gets better. It keeps them warmer in this damp cold that we have here!
Wilda was to busy eating to look at me...
If anyone is interested, here are two of my permanent foster cats raw transition stories (with before and after pictures). I have switched three other cats to raw as well since the last time I was active on here: TyTy (blind siamese), Rodent (4 weeks old stray kitten when I first found him), ...
"Baldy" is just a temperary name, until I can figure out something that actually suits him. Tonight or tomorrow I'll try get a few pictures of him up.
February 2, 2012: I was brought “Baldy” today. He is a DSH black and white cat who is about four years old. He started losing fur two years...
I kept track of Nightmare's progress on his switching to raw on a different forum, so thought I'd post it here, in case it is helpful to anyone. If any part of this seems a bit random - some of it may be responses to other people's posts/questions.
January 12, 2012:
All the other cats eat...
Mitch attempting to grab some freeze dried salmon out of my hand.
Note: it doesn't work very well to be holding the camera with one hand and have a kitten practically hanging from the other.
Then Morey came along and decided to help. He stayed like that for close to a minute while licking...
Malachi is the grey and white kitten
Morey is the dark brown/black tabby
Mitch is the growling one, a brown tabby. I was touching him, thus the growling (and him moving).
The food is Turkey Drumstick Meat and Beef Kidney.
Morey loves to play with his toy.
Morey and Mitch...
I have 5 kittens needing homes - they are all fixed, have their first shots, and are dewormed. They were born around August 10, 2010. Their mother is a feral who I trapped to get fixed when the kittens were 4 weeks old. I've had them since then and they are very sweet kittens!
First off, the new faces:
Malachi - born June 25. Our housecat, I fell in love with him at the shelter a few weeks after we had to put Milo (my best friend for 14 years) to sleep.
Not new...but our other housecat, Mikey:
Their mother is a feral who I trapped and had spayed last Wednesday. The couldn't go back with her because she would take them somewhere else and I'd never see them again. I also didn't want them to have their mom's attitude rub off on them (there is a reason we named the mom Jezebel!)
What feeding time looks like in the milkhouse:
Blizzard - Siamese Mix
Panther - Black with white spots on neck
Missy - b&w female
Mo - tuxedo cat
Allie - B&W DMH
Storm - White DMH
Buddy - Black DMH
Lynx - brown and white tabby
The straw mow cats at feeding time:
Chester - Gray DLH

*No cats were harmed in the taking of these photographs. If I had let him he would have jumped in the pond but I made him settle for a clean mud puddle (yes there is such a thing).*
