    Please come home Einstein!

    Hi Everyone! :) I have a friend who is a member on a parrot site and she has just recently lost her cat, Einstein. He had gotten into a cat fight and the stress from it caused him to develop a UTI. Her vet gave her a small dose of Elavil to calm him down and he hated it so much that he kind of...

    AAACK!- the bird people are out of control-AAACK!

    I am so sick of stupid comments coming from bias bird people on how cats are responsible for all of the birds disappearing in this world! Let me explain: I joined a parrot site because I wanted to learn everything I could to ensure the best possible care for my two parrots- and for the most...

    From Neglect to Shame

    The cat's name is Vale, as in Vale Colorado. She is my one white cat, the only one that I have ever had. She came into my mother's life 17 years ago when two little girls found her under our porch in the dead of winter and begged my mother to take her in. My mother being the sucker that she is...

    Sometimes you have to.

    I have given this difficult matter some long and hard thought and have reached the decision to re-home Figaro. This is the first time in my life that I have had to say this, but I am in over my head with this cat. Figgy is just too disruptive, destructive, and headstrong- it is always a war of...

    Are indoor cats as happy as outdoor cats?

    Are indoor cats as happy as outdoor cats? I know that outdoor cats don't live as long, and an indoor cat is safer. But I see some of my indoor cat look longlingly outdoors. Are we robbing them from living their lives to the fullest, despite the dangers? Bill Maher said of this issue, “Married...

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN FROM INKY

    Hi everyone! I drew this image of Inky for a class project. The project is a made up online business called, Friendly Ferals, that features holiday and greeting cards from feral cats. I shared it with my friend, Mamanyt, and she suggested that I share it with all of OUR good friends here...

    Freeing Myself Of Cats

    Hi everybody Don't get the wrong idea from the title- I love cats, but I need to make a hard decision to free myself from them. I do this for two reasons: first, to give them a chance for a better life and secondly, to give my emotions a break. When I lost Jeff six months ago, I pretty much...

    My New Cat Is Suddenly Acting Indifferent To Me

    I decided to keep one of the feral cats that I rescued from a parking lot this summer. She is a tabby-tortie who was on death's front door when I got her- infection, staggering when walking, dehydrated, weak, and pregnant. After treatment and the scary introduction to house-life she quickly...

    How Does One Trap A Scared Kitten?

    Does anyone know how to trap a feral kitten who is afraid of everything- including traps! Once again, I am talking about the cats over at Hood's parking-lot, only this time the feline is question is a three month old Siamese kitten. His mother (whom I feed) abandoned him completely a week ago...

    Have You Ever Not Liked A Cat?

    I will say it, Figaro unnerves me. He is one of those cats who is devoid of emotions and empathy. History: I got Figgy two years ago right after I lost my black and white cat, Bugs, to a brain tumor. He was a energetic 3 month old kitten when I first discovered him over at my vets. He sported...

    Are We Going Backwards?

    A few months ago I rescued a cat over at Hood's parking lot. She was one of the six that I am intent on rescuing this year. She was in such bad shape when I nabbed her, she was dealing with an infection that caused her to stop eating and she was also pregnant with her second litter. For several...

    What Breed Was My Girl?

    Please do not look if you are sensitive, for my goal is not to depress anyone on this wonderful site. These are not photos of a live kitty. Jeff was a special friend who left me on March 29th. I have been heartbroken since. She was very unique looking large tabby cat with a long jungle cat...

    Help Please With The Ink

    I think many of you are familiar with the story of Inky, the feral kitty that I took to my vet in the hopes that he and his rescue group could find a home for him. Well, yesterday when I went in to visit Inky I was told that they could not do anything more for him and that I needed to take him...

    Maybe In Helping Cats, We Are Really Hurting Them?

    I write this post with a feeling of deep regret. For quite some time I have been feeding feral cats over at a home depot parking lot. Every night for the last seven years you could find me over there, along with 20 hungry felines. Armed with bags of Fancy Feast, Purina Cat Chow, scores of...

    You Didn't Even Say Goodbye, Jeff

    Yes, she was a cat, but please keep on reading. This can't be good-bye "Remember, we treat our body like a temple, we don't get into cat fights and we watch for cars. We don't hurt any little animals and neither one of us goes before the other. I mean it Jeff, don't you hurt me, don't you...

    Can A Cat Be Trained Not To Kill?

    This may sound like an odd question considering we are talking about cats, but I am having a problem with one of my cats killing smaller animals. Last summer he managed to kill both of my parakeets. I have two cockatoos, which, because of their size, he leaves strictly alone. I know cats have...

    "i Only Want To Trust, And You Know It Don't Come Easy"

    Hi everyone! I have been feeding stray/feral cats at store parking lot for six years now and have seen cats come and go. Two years ago a rescue team swooped in and trapped 20 of the cats but couldn't catch one stubborn tom cat. He was just too smart for their traps, he would sniff them and then...
