Baby is back in the house Now what?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I had put her out side, because she was miserable inside. I have tried to find a home for her, preferably on a farm. despite all of my attempts to tame her, she remains semi-feral. As soon as her babies weaned she just hid. Last night I heard her crying outside my window, She was soaking wet and cold. So I put her back in the basement. She is now happily curled up on a blanket. I really don't know what to do with her. She can't stay. She is very aggressive to the dogs, and other cats. She can also be aggressive to people. I have talked to the S.P.C.A they said , they would most likely have to put her down.

Any chance of a shelter outside for her...a screened in porch or some sort of cat house that will be just hers??

Is she spayed? I've had success with working with cats taming them moreso once they're fixed.

Yes I had spayed after she had her kittens. We tried making her an outside shelter. She won't go into the back yard, because the dogs are there

I wish I could take her for you, but I'm far too far away. I'm assuming no shelter/humane society can help you find a farm home? What about checking with vets to see if they know of anyone who'd take good care of her as a farm kitty?

I asked the vet. I have put up posters for two months. I am going to keep trying. She is a sweet girl ( to me). I also haven't been able to find a GOOD home for her son. I will keep him until I find a home for him.

Try stables too. I met a woman at the vet who bringing in the stable's cat for care. He was an excellent mouser and well cared for.

She ia actually getting along pretty well, I have opened the door and allowed the other cats to go where she is, She is not at all aggressive with them. The big problem is . Dh doesn't really care for cats. We have Lucky, I think is Baby's first baby. I found newborn on the lawn, Gus her second baby , I kittynapped him before Christmas, and I still have one of Baby's kittens. Davey from her last litter. that I haven't been able to home. He was happy I brought Baby back in. he sees that she is very tiny and quite helpless. He said last night he wishes that she could just get along with the dogs, so I think he is coming around.

oh good i'm glad !!! i'm shocked that you were able to open the basement
door so quickly. wow....thats a big step !
i think that eventually she may come around with the dogs but in
the meantime if you could just let her hang out in safety in the
basement I bet that would work pretty well.

good luck and did I miss the pictures ?

This is Baby with her kittens. I think the reason she likes the basement, is it isn't finished, and she can walk on the rafters. She feels safe up there. She is happily sharing her food and litter box.

I have 5 cats, all don't like dogs. My SO has 2 large doggies - one Boxweiler and one Boxer. The Boxer is old, and scared of kitties, no danger there.
The other one tho - he grew up wi/kitty and LOVES cats.

He is very much chase agressive. I fear for my kitties.
I believe a solution would be to cut hole in
basement door that kitty can go thru (pet door) and doggie
cannot. (Works for larger dogs, not if you have small doggies).

Also you can use babygates if you are able, to create room for doggies
to be in, and room for kitty. Kitty can then slowly get used to doggies,
and vice versa.

I don't like the idea, but we will be using a shock collar to teach the boxweiler
NOT TO CHASE kitties in addition to the above steps (cat hole in doors, sept cat areas, and baby gates).

At 110 lbs, he can do some damage to the house if he chases kitties.
