relieved My Nommie was in same purrdic-ament with me , I was declawed, lived outside under a R.V. trailer for about 4-5 yrs. it took noms awhile of bringing me in and not letting me out until she wanted too or I got ready to eat noms before she would let me out, I bellowed alot and she would hold me & tell me it was O.k.When I did go outside with my feral defender Morso he was 14 & I was 8, she made an insulated cat house with a bed & would put a wet towel in our bed, we were hot & we really liked it in. She put ice cubes & some gatorade in our water.(Don't know how she got the gators in there shrug And she also would bring us in and wipe us down with a wet cloth. WE cats do not pant to keep cool like a dog, we sweat through our feet we don't have some kind of regulator Noms says. I no longer want anything to do with outside it took her about 4 mos. straight of bringing me in but I would not go outside now for anything cuz someone cut my toes off & I can't climb or defend myself & my feet hurt a lot outside it's much softer inside.BE VIGILANT & you can make this cat an inside cat were it belongs.If you need any pointers on how to deal with declawed cats & how to make life easier inside, Noms says let her know & she will give you some pointers what ever they are.Purrs to you.kitty

I can totally relate with you I am in the same purrd-ick-ament, Some local animal rescues will help out with dry food but I've not found any that donate wet and my Seniors will eat me if they don't recieve there breakfast and dinner portion a quarter can of Fancy Feast each, it's enough to satisfi their cravimg for the gravy. And at this point I going to try and make their wet food I beleive it will be alot more healthy and budget wise. Chicken/turkey/beef boiled down purree some fruit/veggies together & purrlaa wet food. I figure I'll invest in some baby food for the jars, because they will reseal again & again so I can make their wet food. Hope this helps and we all wish you purrluck, Please wish us purrluck. Hope this helps kittyrelieved
