    Tell me something about you

    I'm currently reading Prequel, by Rachel Maddow. Fascinating, and inspiring, but not an easy read (I tend to forget peoples' names when I put the book aside for a few days).

    Apologies

    Okay, try this link: United Spay Alliance - Home You should get a chance to search for low cost clinics near you. Be sure to pick an appropriate radius – I doubt your father will want to drive 200 miles to get a feral cat neutered.

    Apologies

    Drat! It was supposed to link to a place that offers coupons for low cost spay and neuter services in North Carolina. I'll see whether I can find a better link. Do you have any other siblings? Because what I'm seeing now isn't sustainable. You're providing care for your sister in return for...

    Is your disabled sister also an adult?

    Apologies

    I'm sorry to ask this, but how old are you? Don't tell me your birthday – birthdates are identity theft information – but you've said enough that I'm starting to wonder whether you need to call Child Protective Services.

    Apologies

    Oh, my dear. That's heartbreaking 💔. We're here for you, any time. For what it's worth, I've had wisdom teeth removed. Once they're gone your mouth, at least, will feel much better. It won't do a darn thing for the grief, though. :hugs:

    Just FYI, you spelled "stethoscope" correctly.

    How do you set up a microchip feeder?

    I apologize if it sounded as if I was making fun of you (and I know that you didn't say that); I meant it as agreement.

    Gee, ya think?

    Microchips

    Yes, I think that's how Jasmine got her microchip; the police in a small town in Wyoming took her mother from an abusive home, and seeing that she was very pregnant they took her to the local veterinary college to give birth. I think the veterinary college must have chipped the kittens, because...

    Microchips

    According to the AVMA, microchip failure is uncommon, but possible. See the 18th question in this excellent article: Microchipping FAQ. It looks like you've found a good price for a scanner; I think it might be a wise purchase. However, there are going to be vet visits at some point, anyway...

    Claw trimming(front claws)

    I've always trimmed my cats' claws myself, without injury. I generally only try for one paw at a time, and I seldom worry about the claws on her back paws. I have a small Swiss Army Knife that has nail clippers on it, like this one: Victorinox Nail Clip 580 Swiss Army Knife at Swiss Knife Shop...

    Help! Vet wants to sedate my OA cat for nail trimming

    If it were me, I'd engage in towel wrapping, though that might change if I were familiar with the cat.

    Help! Vet wants to sedate my OA cat for nail trimming

    Unfortunately true. And even more likely true if an incompetent vet has given the cat a phobia about claw clipping.
