    Spoilage Issue During Spring Summer Months?

    A group of us feed a well established, small feral cat colony, in three separate places, all within walking distance. As a treat and to supplement canned cat food, I add about one or two ounces of chopped up cooked meat and homemade bone broth to the canned cat food. I am concerned the meat...

    Will And How My Cats Can Get Use To Smells Of Trapped Tnr Cats?

    Here is the background: because my house is centrally located to where the feral/stray cats will be trapped and then s/n; microchipped/vaccinated [TNR], I have volunteered my house for pre- and post-recovery placement. This is an ongoing program connected with a new community cat program in...

    Can Antibiotics Or Diarrhea Cause Fungus

    Cliff notes version: rescued two five-week old kittens from the condo where I use to live and where I still go every other week to feed the last of the remaining feral cat colony. Mother cat no where around. Eyes were mostly brown but still some blue. So, yeah, really young. Brown Eyes and...

    Kitten to Good Home: More guidance please

    I have read Kittens to Good Home and learned some good tips. I have a slightly different situation I need some help on. I'll try to keep this post short; feel free to ask questions. Question: where should two cats who don't know each other play? A month ago I rescued Dahalia from under a car...

    Underweight cat: can s/he still be spayed/neutered?

    I rescued a cat from the sidewalk on Sunday near the community cat colony that I take care of. Initially thought female based on her private parts but now leaning more towards male based on body length (LONG) and personality (extremely friendly, cuddly, no fear of humans). S/he is anywhere...

    Hercules and Ritz, sitting in a (cat) tree, k ....

    Bottom line question: is there a way I can convince Ritz that Hercules isn't really guarding the kitchen entrance, prepared to pounce? Background: Hercules, male, neutered; Ritz, female, spayed. Roughly same age (six). Ritz rescued when she was around four to six months old; Hercules dumped...

    Hercules and Ritz, sitting in a tree, not kissing (yet?)

    I've mentioned before about this cat I am fostering (adopting). TNRd by me in May 2012; always been inordinately friendly. About six months after I first TNRd him, he showed up with a chunk of fur missing that had been professionally clean and sutured. Clearly, he has at least one other...

    Frantically seeking affection

    I recently removed Hercules (male, TNRd May 2012, roughly four years old) from the colony I take care of. He has always been inordinately affectionate, and given how frigid the temperatures were going to be/are, I thought, no cat deserves to be outside. He settled in pretty quickly, although...

    Hermaphroditism

    I don't have much knowledge about what is normal in a cat, especially male cats. Ritz is my first cat ever and female. I've done a lot of TNing but never socialized a cat on my own. Hercules has always been inordinately friendly, especially for a stray/dumped cat. At the cat colony, he would...

    My experience taking Ritz to a holistic vet

    Ritz is due for a wellness check, and has persistent vomiting, about two times a week. Seems to be related to how many hours she goes without eating. She also seems to be hungry all of the time, and has some FHS symptoms. The vet I've been taking Ritz to (lovely bedside manner) does not...

    Need recommendation for break away collar with room for a note

    I am trying to determine if a cat is owned mainly for peace of mind. Ritz a prima donna and probably would not tolerate a second cat. I TRNd "Hercules" in May 2012; thereafter, he would come by occasionally to eat. Then around six months later, he showed up with a chunk of fur missing from...

    Tommy

    I volunteer for a cat sanctuary which has FELK+ cats, among other healthy/feral/FIV+ cats. Some of the friendliest cats are in the FeLK room so that's where I and my twin sister go after we scoop poop in the general population room. Tommy was a one-person cat only; he would chase away any cat...

    keyboard not responsive

    My keyboard when on TCS seems very slow (and, I don't type *that* fast!) Seems to be slowest when I'm replying to a question, not--in this instance--when I'm initiating a thread. Keyboard works fine doing other functions, i.e., replying to work related emails or personal emails. Any idea why...

    I do not know the full background of this story, but this is a situation in which cats should have been given rabies vaccinations.

    New York City: Here I Come

    I will be visiting New York City in early October for a few days. Does anyone know of an animal shelter/sanctuary in NYC (subway accessible) that I could visit to get my kitty fix? Some animal shelters require training before being able to simply sit with the cats, and while I can certainly...

    Best medications for Feral Cats

    Welcome. One or two cats in my small community cat colony have what I suspect is a flea allergy. I can't get close enough to them to put on Frontline or similar medication. I tried putting DE in their food, they didn't touch it. I was helping a woman feed feral cat colonies in Athens...

    Rotating Probiotics

    In conjuction with an increase in Ritz' FHS symptoms, I was advised by Ritz through a (reputable) animal communicator to rotate probiotics. (Yeah, I know it sounds 'out there' but the animal communicator is wonderful and accurate.) I've been using this one for a while; should I be using...

    Same litter, different types of cats.

    Welcome, and I'm so glad we have an you with us on The Cat Site. I have a really basic, not too technial, question (I think!) Ritz (female) is a rescue, along with her brother and two sisters. They and the mother cat were dumped in late November 2010, and survived a 20" snow storm. They were...
