Meet Wubby!, the little 8 month old girl I've been feeding on Ferndale and Webster for at least a month now,. Thats how long its taken for her to trust me to come up close to me for a bite to eat while I pour the good stuff out - the wet food. She is a beauty. I just couldn't leave a kitten on the street. I don't know what I will do with her, besides take her to the vet, but she needed to get off the street. She is scared, but won't leave your lap if you place her there. This is where she will head butt you, and put her tiny head into the crook of your arm as if to hide. This is where she fully trusts you. Please spread the word so that someone can adopt or foster her. She's a good little girl.
Another dilemma: I received this from the new mom of Barney. Please, please, help me with some advice. I can't imagine having to take him back for this. Or that she keeps him I have no where for him to go.
"I moved all Barneys stuff to the basement. I don't know why but he sprayed urine all over the walls, it was literally dripping down the wall. and on mikey toys and on the couch. do u know of anything to get rid of the smell? I got it mostly gone but its still lingering."
I released the kitties I had TNR'd yesterday at the clinic. I think Kristin has been tallying up the cats I've TNR'd, and I think she said something about 18 so far, so this would make 20. Thats a LOT for me. I am proud of that number. And, as she said, its only May. I just started to do this in what, March? Turns out that Pixie and Poppa were BOTH boys. There are a LOT of boys out there! Would love to know the number of girls that I've done so far, in comparison to the number of boys. Anybody got time to count? :) They spent the night on my porch in their traps, and ate pretty well. "Pixie" allowed me to pet him. I feel horrible each time I have to release them. They could be someone's loving kitty. Spread the word, please. Open your home and hearts to these guys.
PS, just got great advice from Julie with the problem with Barney: and its so true. So if you are leery to adopt a cat from the street because of this, remember this (and this is NOT a normal occurrence): bleach and water will take it away. He will have that smell for about 2 weeks until all the testosterone is out of his system. He will also not be able to spray as soon as all testosterone is gone, only pee. He was likely scared and unsure of his surroundings...
Have a GREAT day!
