Mom has not been on in ages

April 4th 2014 9:33 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

Mom has not been on here in ages.She has so much to deal with trying to get a feral colony in control,take care of Hannah and I and a friend daily who has Alzheimer's.She is really feeling stressed.Then I came down with urinary crystals and she has been to the vet treating me for that.I have been a through the antibiotic course but still am not peeing as much as I use to.
They gave her a 8lb bag of prescription cat food but I don't like it.Cost Mom $38 which she really didn't have to throw away.
She is wondering about trying Purina one Urinary because it is cheaper.
Also Friskie urinary can food.
To top it off she blew her stack because for some reason this morning I went while she was sitting and sprayed on her sweatpants while she was wearing them.She is assuming it was because there was a scent of one of the feral's outside on her.She is so stressed with me and worried on how to handle all this.

 

Mom put new pictures on of me and Hannah.

I know mom hasn't been on for awhile.She has been busy her feral cat count is up to 10 and it takes all of her time.Dad got laid of from one of his shifts at work so it has been real tight here getting them fed.
Ozzy mom's lovable feral was gone for 5 days and now came back but hasn't been eating.He just wants to lay in moms arms and purr.Mom is going to have to find a vet to check him out him cheap because she is hoping she might have a home for him.We have been spoiled for Christmas but it is hard for mom to enjoy much until she gets these outdoor cat situation in control.Check out our new pictures on mine and Hannahs page.

Say a prayer for my sister Hannah she is going to the vet today.She has been throwing up the last three days.Mom is not sure what is going on.She is very active jumping around and all but the last three days she threw up 3 times a day.But then goes back to playing.Mom is worried because my bad sister got in the garbage and ate a turkey bone .Bone and all so Mom is hoping she doesn't have a blockage but Mom thinks if she had a blockage she wouldn't be jumping through the air p;laying like she does.So to the vet she goes.We never know what my bad sister gets into .She is sure a handful.Hope this isn't nothing serious or as Dad says also to expensive.

 

So far so good with Oliver

So far so good Oliver is staying close by in a heated bin every night no signs of him being sick.He still comes up to Mom and eats .Mom is going to try and get Tessa's kittens with the neighbor Friday and try to find a no kill shelter close by to bring them to.They are so gorgeous.Mom is sure people will want them but it is hard because she also doesn't want to be the cause of their bad fate either.She is going to talk with their vet to see if he will give them a discount on getting her spaded.She does not want to deal with her shelter since they killed Lucinda and her kittens within hours.Anyways Mom put pictures of Tessas kittens on her page .Mom sure wishes she could afford to take Ozzy in he is such a very good cat.But from her experience in the past two males with a female is a mess.Hunter is trying to nail his sister a lot now even though he's neutered .Having to males fight over her would make her life hell and that wouldn't be right.But she still is working on finding him a home.

Mom is worried she was holding one of the 6 month old ferals today.Oliver he is Ozzys brother.He was on her lap when someone must have fired a shotgun in the woods .Well Oliver panicked and jumped over Moms shoulder but in the process his claw caught Moms ear and ripped the bottom almost off.Mom is scared to go get treated because she is afraid they will come take Oliver and have him put down to test for rabies .Can you get Rabies from a cats scratch Mom thought you could only get it from Saliva.How should Mom handle this?

Mom has to get the feral's in control.She is losing to many of them.Moms favorite boy Elwood has been gone for three weeks.Mom is so upset .He was such a good cat.She is praying as he got older he took up with another colony and nobody here hurt him.Now she has an all black 5 month old hanging on her name Ozzy .Plus Tess has 5 kittens we have to get homes for.Mom knows she has to get Tessa spaded but she won't take her to her neighborhood shelter since they killed Lucinda and her kittens within 8 hours.So now she has to talk to our vet see if he will give her a price break on doing a TNR on Tessa.
These ferals are eating like crazy.

Please share moms editorial so Haws changes their policy

Easy Disposal of life at Waukesha HAWS.

I got the shock of my life the other week when I saw how easily kittens
were disposed of.
A lady in our park brought a mother cat and her kittens in to Waukesha
Haws the same place a couple months ago we brought a six week kitten
in.My husband asked them twice if the kitten would be put down.They
told us they never put young kittens down unless they were seriously
ill.
When this lady brought this mother and her kittens in they were
disposed of within hours claiming they were feral.

Definition of feral--of or characteristic of wild animals;ferocious;
brutal.

I had cared for the Mother cat who had walked in my house many times
to be fed and petted.
When the neighbor took her in and I found out I helped her trap the
very small kittens to bring them in to the Mother with the hope of them
having a chance not realizing I helped bring them to their death
within hours.
Is there a such thing as feral kitten so young that it;s hard to
separate feral from fear?
I had petted these kittens before they were hauled away.
My husband and I have socialized many young kittens within a few days.
Knowing the first step would be a warm bath to get the outdoor wild
scent off them.
Then to routinely nurture them through slowly letting them eventually
climb on us feeling their control.
Apparently Haws did not feel the need to give these kittens a chance as
they were put to sleep with the Mother hours later.
Was it that easy to dispose of them faster than a crumpled piece of
paper?
Were the not worth the time of trying to ease their fear?
Is it fair to call a kitten so small feral ?
These are questions HAWS needs to reevaluate before I ever donate to
them again .I hope others feel the same.

 

Hannahs sister Lucinda was killed by the shelter

Mom is very distraught.Some lady in the park trapped Lucinda and her
kittens in the park and took them to the shelter and they put all six
of them to sleep that day.Mom was furious so she went to the shelter to
see why they snuffed out their lives without giving these kittens a
chance.The lady told her they were feral and couldn't be handled .Mom
told her what gives you the right to call scared kittens feral with out
bathing them and trying to socialize them,And Lucinda was not feral you
could pet her and if she was acting up it was because they stoled her
kittens from her.Mom is so sad and angry.She told that lady you probably
hava a harder time throwing out your cigarette than you did those
cats.You guys told us months ago when we brought one of Tessas kittens
there they never put kittens down unless they were really sick.This
Waukesha Humane society lies to people and Mom will never bring a feral
to any kind of shelter again,Now neighbors are trying to get her out of the park because she is calling on people that are killing cats and raccoons in the park with shovels and drowning them alive in cages.Mom doesn't understand this human race how someone could cold heartly drown or beat an animal to death.She is so bitter she finds here self more and more isolating her self from the human race.She hasn't been on much because her computer hasn't been running right so she has to use the one at the library.Moms family thinks she's nuts investing so much time with the ferals.She misses being on Catster as her outlet as she is so sad about the outcome here.Any advice on the feral and shelter situation would be appreciated.

 

No Elmer yet

Old tom Elmer has not showed up in over a week.Mom is certain he is no longer alive.She hopes he died on his own of old age and no one in the park trapped and hurt him.Mom read on the DNR site that they can trap people on their private property if they are a nuisance.It is sad if all the animals are being drowned.The other day a woman in back said a guy had a groundhog in a trap and was going in the back with it with a shovel.Moms anger has been bubbling and she feel helpless in this situation and fears her cats will eventually fall prey to these people.She is going to try and get Peta involved.Maybe go on this mobile home parks website and put a review that this is a terrible place to live with violent people that think nothing of killing animals.Mom does not understand these peoples issue with the animals.This is a wooded park with large lots surrounded by woods and humongus evergreens.This land belongs more to the animals than it does us.Why can't people just learn to leave with these creatures.They have never bothered moms garden or yard.Sad that the human race thinks they are of more worth than other living things.Mom is very sad today.

 

We haven't seen Elmer the old man in 5 days.

Mom is stressed we haven't seen Elmer the old tom in 5 days.Mom is afraid someone may have hurt him because there are traps set all over the park and people here told mom the park manager drown the racoons and groundhogs in the cages.Mom is not sure how to find out if this is true.She is going to call the DNR anonomously and then maybe Peta.Mom wonders how people can care for ferals without being so stressed and worried all the time.Sometimes she wonders if she is even doing them any good,but she can't turn away from them or any animal for that matter.
