It's with great sadness that I announce that Mackenzie the squirrel died suddenly last night or early this morning.
According to what I had read 2 days ago, death was not imminent as his poop hadn't turned white.
I think he got trapped under the wire floor at the bottom of the cage as that's...
We've been on this job site for 3 weeks now, and a nest of baby squirrels was discovered in the roof last week.
It was moved and the mother took 2 of 3 of them and found a place to raise them.
Yesterday, I walked into the shed to get some water, and found a baby trying to climb up the gas can...
As you know, I'd rescued a couple of feral cats and the one, the female is very friendly.
However, shortly after getting my male cat Fluffy neutered, he and Braylie scrap it out daily.
I discovered that Fluffy is the instigator, but I don't know why.
It was suggested to try spraying both of...
I took the feral Tiger in for neutering today.
Despite no complications during the surgery, he started bleeding from the surgical site afterwards.
The vet staff are so good over there, they're understanding how freaked out I am at hearing this.
It's very uncommon for bleeding to occur after...
I'm specifically looking for owners of breeding pairs, or gerbils that have had litters in the past.
My Gerri had her first litter on June 20th. This litter isn't fully weaned yet.
I came home from work today to find that she'd already had her second litter, judging by their color, not too...
Ok, so we brought in the female the other day and it's been quite a trip so far.
The female(still haven't figured out a name) wakes us up at all hours of the night meowing. She even climbed up on the windowsill the other night.
She knows where the litter box is, but she doesn't use it. I...
I went in to check on Tiger this morning and I noticed that his litter box hadn't been touched since I cleaned it yesterday.
I had told my husband not to vacuum in there as Tiger didn't need the stress, but he did.
And now, Tiger is nowhere to be seen.
I've searched that room high and low...
I mentioned that I have 2 gerbils that were supposed to be male, but turned out not to be.
I wanted names for them that would work if I'd found out that one was female, and I was right about this.
Gerri, our female, is pregnant. I see a noticeable bulge in her belly.
Guessing that she's only...
Until a few weeks ago, I'd never even heard of this company, and they've been in business for 30 years.
I discovered the food when I read a post from someone on a feral discussion board and they provided an email address.
So I emailed the supplier about the food and he gave me a link to the...
Nail clipping is difficult for most people, but I find I have a more difficult challenge with Fluffy.
The only time I can really clip his nails is when he's sleeping, he's just too lazy to put up a fuss.
He doesn't like my husband, so I can't ask him to help me with this task.
I guess I could...
I have no idea really how to bathe Fluffy, we've just hopped into the tub together and I've always bathed him while he lay on my chest.
Fluffy hasn't really had any reason for baths except when he had a bout of fleas, so he seldom goes into the tub.
Any suggestions of how to bathe him without...
When Fluffy first moved in with us a few years ago, he'd never been on a harness before.
I didn't know anything about cats and harnesses, only dogs, but Fluffy took to it like it was nothing.
Today, he wears it 24/7 and doesn't even notice that he wears it.
He's a big chicken so he doesn't go...
Somehow I don't think that Tiger is a pure feral, he doesn't behave like a typical feral.
When I came across this forum, I was reading up on how to socialize with a feral, and that's when I knew he wasn't a full feral.
He's fine with eye contact, he hides under a table all day, only coming out...
We have been sort of a rescue for other animals, not just cats.
A few years ago, I rescued my current cat from my MIL who treated him like garbage.
He's the most lovable cat in the world, follows me everywhere and sleeps with me as well.
Fluffy is a Persian mix, about 8 years old...
Back in April, I was seeing quite a few cats wandering the street where I live.
I live on a quiet, dead end street, facing a golf course, so there are no other houses on the other side of the street.
These cats are clearly wild, I'd seen 2 of them scraping it out in another backyard at one...
I signed up 2 nights ago and just now got the email so I could finally log in.
4 weeks ago, I rescued an injured feral, and just a week ago, I also rescued a 4 week old kitten.
I'd love to be able to rescue all the ferals on my street, but I simply don't have room for them with...
