It was another cold morning out there. At least it didn’t snow. No sign of the two kitties – Sweet Jane at the first Parsells Avenue stop, and no sign of the other kitty being held three mornings ago. Where did they go?
Although I did have a new cat on my porch this morning! Annabelle, the calico cat I’ve been feeding and sheltering on my porch at night when she wants to sleep, was there, as she has been for over five years now, but so was another large black fluffy cat. I opened the door to get the frozen water and place some wet food for them and Annabelle froze in her warm, heating padded seat, while the other cat froze just before the opening of the propped open door. He let me pet him as he gobbled down the warm wet food, and I copped a feel. Unneutered. I went back out half hour later, and he was curled up on the other chair on the porch. Unheated. Lord, do I need to get another heating pad for him now? But the second time I went out there, I noticed THAT SMELL. HE sprayed and left that Godawful unneutered scent. I would like to trap him, on my own porch!, and get him neutered. At least he would have a place to eat and sleep after that without me worrying about letting him back out on the streets in the hood!
Dasher, the handsome boy I rescued and had neutered last Tuesday (last week) has been naughty. He has aggression issues and its sort of frightening his foster mom. I don’t blame her. I’ve had kitties like this. And I’ve had to watch my back with them, one in particular, Brady (who I have still but he is such a love now). But they really do come around, some sooner than others. With the right training (spray bottle, firm “NO!”, calming sprays and scents, pills), they will change. But it takes time and PATIENCE. But in the meantime, I’ve made an appointment for him with a vet to have a good look over. I cannot afford to lose a foster, I have none left. And I have no room at my inn. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Mr. Fluffypants is doing very well in his foster home. He has swatted at the dogs he shares a roof with, but was found sleeping on the gentleman of the house’s lap with the little dog. He really is the best kitty. Some are easier than others.
Have a great day!
