Arrival Story: About 2002, when I was watering my garden I started seeing a cute little stray cat who would come and sit on my fence. I named her Willow because she just hung around. The first time I tried to pet her, she bit me, so I told her that she was on a time out until she was more used to me. Eventually, two weeks later, she not only let me pet her but she let me hold her and cuddle her. She eats here twice a day and I had built her a little cat house out of wood to help her fend off the winds ect. She used to come inside the house but only for a couple of hours before she would cry very hard to go back outside. She had been outside too long to adapt inside. Eventually, I got Daisy so I could have an inside kitty all the time. WIllow deserves so much more, A neighbor on the other side of the fence gives her flea contol once a month. I worry about her a lot though.
Bio: it's 2013 and Willow is still healthy and with us. She still will not come in and sleeps inside her little wooden cat house three feet up off the ground and with an indoor/outdoor heating pad if it gets too cold. she gets all the food and fresh water and flea control. we love little tiny Willow. wish she was an indoor kitty, i hate her out there. i'll never let our Daisy outside! it's so sad seeing them out there like they are. We have a little, well not little a large cat I call Trixie we have been taking care of for about a year now too. There was a beautiful Siamese I did manage to find a fantastic home for about six months ago. She was not an outdoor cat. She hated it outside. She had to of been abandon. She stayed in the cat house for two months and I'd go outside at night four or five times a night to sit with her and hold her. She was something else. I cried when I handed her over to her new furmom although I know she ended up in the best place for her. Because I can't have anymore inside with Daisy. She has an immune issue.
today my meowmy put up a video of mine to help get items on our you tube wish list *she is in process of making* this is the you tube address to view my show!
i guess you just have to copy the link since it isn't linkable from here. it's all about helping me and the other Ferals my meowmy takes care of.
Pawleeese! All of you semi feral kitties like me...
be so careful now! This holiday brings out many kitty haters and we need to stay away from them. My mom wishes when she met me i would of come inside but i wouldn't. for eight years now, she takes care of me but i won't go inside. outside kitties are at risk of so many dangers and Halloween is one of the worst ones. So... be careful my brothers and sisters, cuz many mean mean people do bad things to us on this time of the year.
Since Willow could never adjust inside, and I feel so horrid her being outside! I found a good outdoor heated pad blanket that is chew proof and has a steel coating around the cord and then a pvc coating. it heats the cat to 102 degrees even in Goddess forbid 20 below zero which it doesn't get in California. But even so, I cry at the thought of her out there when it's cold. She has a wooden cat house that is rainproof and three foot up from the ground by the back door but still... i wished she was inside like my other cat Daisy. Now, at least she'll be warm. She does curl up in her little house at night. Even sometimes during the day. it is so the light is shaded and only one doorway to go in and out of that is faced away from the winds direction.
