Arrival Story:
We went to our vet for the yearly physical for our dogs. The vet had rescued some 4 month old feral kittens, and he was trying to find homes for them. He had them in a large cage on the counter of his office. While the other kittns were quiet and shy, Conal was mewing his brains out, trying to get our attention, and he suceeded. I had always liked "irnch" (orange) tabbies, and Conal was VERY irnch. So, we took him home with us.

Though our other cats were indoor/outdoor cats, Conal had to be kept in the house, or taken outside only under supervision. Otherwise, he would run away. I think he never got over having been feral. For example, he ate everything in sight, as many animals will do if they can't be sure of their next meal. Because we had other cats who were used to having dry food in their bowls at all times, this was a problem. As Conal got fatter and fatter, the other cats began to lose weight. We tried to supervise their meals, but it was nigh on to impossible, because none of them were used to eating on a schedule. Eventually, before he was a year old, Conal developed bladder stones and the vet wanted to remove them by catheterizing him, which required him being knocked out. Unfortunately, probably because of his weight, Conal died under the anesthesia. We were stunned. He was such a beautiful, loving litle guy... Perhaps if we had had more time to work with him, he could've overcome his bad start in life. But his feral beginnings worked against both him and us. I don't mean to lecture anyone, but -- PLEASE spay or neuter your cats and dogs!!
