Katie, that will make them soo happy! That silver stuff works well. I use the silver bubble wrap for heaters and pipes, similar insulating properties. Keeps heat in and cold out or vice versa...
My ferals were taken care of while I was away on travel. When I got back 2 had been trapped by the volunteer caretaker (who works for humane society) and taken for fixing. Sadly one was 3 wks from delivery, and they decided to keep the kittens and C section! Now we are hoping and praying those kittens can make it! 3 wks premie is shocking. The vet should have done the abort - even though these babies were close to term, they probably won't survive. We are looking for a mama cat to nurse but none seem forthcoming. Mama cat was released back to her colony, along with the other kitty who was also preggers (1 month along).
I was sad and glad - glad they got fixed, sad about the kittens. But OTH I am ALMOST done fixing! I have 2 males to catch now - and one battered old guy that is *probably* male to catch and fix/give shots.
Meantime, 2 of the cats I lost in October reappeared! I have NO clue where these boys/girls went - but I saw no signs until last week. And then, suddenly, they were BAAACK! Just 2 of the orginial 4/6 that left. I still
don't know where they went, but they did survive.
So my kitty count stands at 6/8 permanent (see all the time) and 4/6 visitors (see occassionally). I estimate I've got about 12 cats eating. Maybe a possum or a skunk or coon too
Sheters are 'in use' and I plan to upgrade over the summer so they
will have even more swank quarters for the winter coming ...
And in other news - Baby my feral coon kitten came back from the tamers - they admitted defeat. She didn't want to be anywhere but at the tamers house. Sigh. She adjusted fine with me, but hated the other rescue lady.
And now in a cruel twist of fate she is very sick. I fear the development
of FIP which I understand affects stressed kittens more than others...
But if I am very very luck she's just picked up something like cocidia or giardia from another kitty at the tamer's house. I noticed all my kitties
sneezing ... so that was bad - but that seems to h ave passed, and so
perhaps the dirreah and runny poo poblem can be cured too.
I have a sample at the vets - testing for worms and cocidia and
Fingers crossed. Send me vibes!!
Also send vibes for the lovely boy Frodo (must post pic) a part snoshoe or
Birman / Siamese mix. He is lovely boy, and I am taming. With hopes we
can adopt out at the end of the year... once I get him tamed. Send vibes for his RAPID taming, LOL!
