Thanksgiving Kitty - Happy Ending

Two days before Thankgiving this little guy showed up in my yard.  He kept crying, so I knew he was not feral.  I brought him in, put fliers out, and neutered him.  No one claimed in within a week, so I put him up for adoption.  He got a home quickly and was taken there today.  He has some great new parents and a nice cozy home to call his own now.  I love happy endings!

Remember IVY?

She was the little momma that I took to the Humane society with her babies once they grew up.  Well, after a months she was still not adopted and was apparantly in the isolation ward.  They said she was sick, her eye was pussy.  I pulled her out of there and examined it.  It looked like she got poked in the eye.  The Vet said she may have Herpes. After a few weeks it has cleared up and she is happy.  She gained weight right away.  I want to stress something to people.  She was terribly unhappy in that kennel, she was scared and lost her appetite.  She was traumatized in that place and I regret taking her there.  Fostering is the only way to go.  You can see the kitty flourish and they are happy.  You can never know what kind of cat you are getting when you pull from the shelter.  It is so sad there.  The cage is 2feet by 2feet! :( makes me want to cry!  She is happy, healthy and loved now.  I have grown attached to her and would prefer to keep her if I can.

Feral Rehab Update

Remember the kitties in the kennel.  Well, they got neutered and I upgraded their apartment to the TV room for two to three weeks, while I worked on further socialization.  It worked, they are now running around the entire house.  Tame enough to let you step over them when they eat and come to your open hand for a brief petting.  They may not be able to be rehomes as they bonded with me. But, they are doing so well considering.  They are so cute and love to play laser light.  I can tell they have grown to love it indoors.
