May be a PITA but you have to keep them separated as if they had never seen one another for now--hopefully it will be brief.

hug from all of us here. Meowma had Ringo a few years ago and he did the same thing; many cats that have ever been out are just obsessed with getting out again. They could still reappear; don't cry too much, you were doing all you could hug

Luna, the most important thing for now is being sure to apply the spot on evey month, on sched even during the winter. I have heard that the Seresto flea collars actually work much better than the regular ones which aren't very effective. However, you shouldn't have to use both.

Get a big plastic storage box with sides over 12" tall. also make sure at least 20" long...cut out a 'door' about 7-8 inches wide. (D oGet rid ot the top)When she flings , it will stay inside. Cheaper than a product labeled "litter box" by miles and unless she can aim really well whatever she flings will stay in.

Other Meows & Purrs > Is my pattern Tortoise Shell or Calico?

She is a tortoiseshell and white; a calico would appear to be a white cat with patches of the colors seen here. Tortoiseshell is patterned all over; the fact she has white paws and a spot of white on her chest makes her tortie and white.

More than one box is better also! Around here we use great big mortar mix or wallpaper hanging bins which Meowma loves because they have curved ends making them very easy to clean, they are plenty deep, AND--even cheaper than the rubbermaids! They are sold at home improvement stores smile

Cat Health > RUNT KITTEN WILL NOT GROW!!

@ 'new member" from Thurs/Friday-- you don't mention what you are feeding but Meowma suggests that your fast little kitty is running off the calories while at the same time is sort of 'behind'... this is common with a kitten that maybe got fixated on a nipple that doesn't produce well or something; they are healthy but need a boost to catch up. We always feed Royal Canin Babycat to little kittens here because it's easy for small kittens to get into their mouths (tiny kibble) and mix in about 1/4 fancy Feast dry which is high fat also and better quality than you would think. For these 'behind' kittens, canned food is limited to once a day, and not enough to make them feel overly full, probably 2 oz is enough. In our experience these "too-small" kittens, especially the real active ones, just cannot get enough caloric intake on all wet, raw, or holistic foods--we are dodging the rock throwing soon to come here, but the humans have to remember that one size does NOT fit all; this kitten needs fat and energy to reach full potential!

Choosing the Right Cat > Why Do People Go To Breeders?

Pandora

go getter kitter
 
 
Purred: Sun Sep 15, '13 6:45pm PST 
Ummmm....we CARE. Meowma has 'rescued' many,many cats, and donates time and money to actually going and helping (hands on) spay and neuter kitties, as do her fellow breeder friends. She is not a wealthy woman but has spent thousands of dollars rehabbing the rescues she has had. Our cat clubs GIVE space to rescue groups to people who go to shows specifically to see cats--not dogs or other animals, and many rescue kitties get homes that way. CFA donates TONS of money to health research.
Again--not everyone wants an animal that might turn out to be skittish, bad tempered, in poor health etc. and gamble on the possibility of having to deal with the heartbreak or disappointment that comes if the new cat turns out not being a good companion or even much of a pet, or at worse has health problems that force the owner to choose between going broke, euthanizing, or taking them bAck to the shelter. . That does not mean people who want a purebred do not care. Most of the kittens that leave here go to homes with other cats, many rescue or shelter kitties. It just happens that the new family would like to have a Burmese.
We are sick of the demonizing of breeders and the idea that it is taking a home away from a feral/homeless/shelter cat if anyone gets a purebred and the assumption that cat breeders are 'getting rich', 'are evil', etc.

Saying Goodbye: Memorials & Support > RIP Little Kitty (found in Waggoner Park)

Poor kitty...and we wonder about this. The person obviously cared about the kitty at some point or it wouldn't even be in a box or taken to the park. Were they freaking out about a dying friend? Out of money and hoping someone would save this kitty? Why???? hug to the poor baby, and to the person who probably wonders what happened and probably feels really bad about this. At least this is how we like to think here at the catty shack.

Cat Health > How to best protect cats from getting lost

That's the thought I'm having--something that's coded to keep bad people from using the cat to find your house, but making it where we could find the kitty! I would happily spend 100+ each for thissmile for the whole crew here. I suspect someone let sweetheart Benson into their home (the neighbor's kids said a renter down the st had a NEW big black cat right before she moved, 3 weeks after he got out)--with this kind of device I would have known if it was true!
