Take a look we used plastic trellis so the cats can still get the air they seem to need- and yes, there is a 7 foot door so we can still get outside


Oh no poor Cleo and bailey...Hope they know how spoiled they are w/ you MA....Looks like you did a great job w/ those doors....

Are you attempting another vet visit...or is that still a four-letter word w/ cleo.....??

No vet visit is needed. They both have bite wounds on various parts of their bodies but I have everything needed to treat them here. I baited the trap tonight and hope to catch the new feral and get him neutered and released at the goat farm- not here.

Good luck in trapping that meanie feral! (OK, I know he's not really mean, just territorial because he still has all of his bits...)

How are Cleo and Bailey doing with the porch enclosure?

Actually they are doing really well. No anxiety issues, they both were in the tent last night staying warm and I think because there are no other cats plus the big open space and all the windows this might work out. Now all my cats are confined, and resting is easier.

We moved the old dog cage out into the porch and I covered it with blankets and put straw inside of it. Cleo is laying in it right now and Bailey is in the tent.

May God bless you MA for not giving up on Cleo.
I pray that both kitties will learn to love their safe enclosure.
Good luck with the new feral.

The things we do for cats!!!
I remember laying on floor in the garage in a sleeping bag reading the evening newspaper and sipping on a glass of wine with Tommie laying on my lap.
Better safe than sorry!!

Good luck catching him MA!!!!

I'm sooo envious of your porch! Just what I need for my
Grey!

All these stories make me feel so much LESS like the
crazy cat lady, LOL!

And I'm soo pleased that Cleo is able to rest
peacefully.

Hope you get that other tom caught and TNR'd soon!

I'm glad Cleo and Bailey are out of harms way. Keep trying on the big guy. He doesn't know it, but getting trapped by MA is the best thing that could happen to him!

You are such an amazing person, MA. I am so happy that Cleo is back and safe...please keep us updated!!!

Cleo's eye has healed up just fine. The hole is gone, and there is no visible ulcer to be seen.

Sorry Gaye, I should have grabbed the original thread and posted to it- I got lazy-
post #84 of 85
So you caught him and treated him? Great work! Perhaps he will even come to allow you to pet him, even after being a feral.

Good to hear. I love hearing stories about people not getting their cats ulcers operated on, after my cats eye was ruined.
