    How to care for a found cat?

    Haha i just ordered one! I have no baseline for how smelly poops are for other cats but his are quite fragrant to me. I’m currently using something a friend grabbed for me but I’ll probably experiment with others when this bag is done. I got a hooded litter box and he knows how to use it but...

    Also I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by all the options in cat litter! How do you guys pick one?!

    How to care for a found cat?

    Oh I had taken the stool sample with me but the vet didn’t want it. Maybe I’m too naive but I figure it’s the spca, they specialize in strays and cats being brought in in crisis, so if they say it’s not needed I’m ok trusting their opinion for now. It sounds like next week during neutering...

    How to care for a found cat?

    I gave him a small bowl of rinsed canned chicken as a post vet treat and he ate it! Hopefully that means he’ll be ok changing to wet food. Might do a bit of both to transition smoothly.

    How to care for a found cat?

    Updates!!! So went to the SPCA bright and early this morning. Got shale checked by the vet. I mentioned the flea dirt. They ran the flea brush through him, no eggs and no adults. They don’t think he is actually infested but they dosed him with Revolution and said I don’t need to bathe him or...

    How to care for a found cat?

    @PreRaphaelite Uh oh. I’ve found “flea dirt!” Should I quarantine him? Or is the damage already done since he’s been in the house do the past day? I feel bad just keeping him in a carrier or bathroom since he cries and hates it.

    How to care for a found cat?

    He already seems to shun people food but will eat the kibble. I’ll keep experimenting though.

    How to care for a found cat?

    But yeah I’ve called all the people I can think to call to let them know I found this cat if case anyone is looking for him. Given the circumstances I’m not giving it good odds that anyone will come forward.

    How to care for a found cat?

    Hard for me to imagine how a cat gets lost miles into a state park. There isn’t that much residential area around. Unless people like to take cats camping? You’d imagine that anyone with a cat they let outdoors though would have a chip or collar :/

    How to care for a found cat?

    I have so many silly questions: Should i regularly bath or brush him? Do people crate train cats? (Lol. Can you tell I’ve only had dogs?) Can you teach cats to come when called? Should I get him a collar even if I chip him?

    How to care for a found cat?

    I’m pretty grateful too in that so far no signs of illness or behavioral issues. Took a swat at a charger cord but that’s about the worst of it so far. I’m curious as to how old the vet will think he is.

    How to care for a found cat?

    Aw that’s so sad that you’d be in a place where you couldn’t afford 15$ to be compassionate to your pet :/ Yeah this cat is more needy for cuddles than most dogs I know. Current state: asleep on lap

    How to care for a found cat?

    Heh. Got overheated on my lap so now next to me in a cat ball I really can’t imagine why anyone would get rid of him. And in such an extreme environment! Some of the trails were closed down due to ice and there are no dumpsters or human life nearby. I mean if you want to surrender your pet why...

    How to care for a found cat?

    Oh I just looked them up and they have walk in hours for vet care! Perfect! Ugh. I wish I hadn’t just thrown out the litter poop lol. But once he poops we will go the next morning at 8am!

    How to care for a found cat?

    One of my friends asked if maybe he’s a feral forest cat. As far as I’m aware, that’s not a thing. At least I’ve never come across a domestic cat while hiking or camping and I do both fairly often. Also my understanding is that feral cats don’t like humans much and have low tolerance for...

    How to care for a found cat?

    Haha my knowledge of cat health is based on what I can extrapolate from dog health and human health (I’m a physician but people can tell you what’s wrong!” I checks his fur the way we check people for lice and everything seems good. No tics at least. No signs of fleas. No patchiness or odd...

    How to care for a found cat?

    Have no idea how old he is. Very soft though and still looks a little gangly. I tried to photograph his teeth lol. He was ok with me doing it but couldn’t stay still for a good pic.

    How to care for a found cat?

    So this weekend I was hiking in the poconos a friend and as we were exiting the forest we thought we heard a child crying. After getting closer we realized it was a very cold and upset cat. The cat was very clearly trying to “talk” to us and was very happy to see humans. It also seemed very well...

    Menu suggestions for brunch menu...Please?

    I like doing a breakfast taco bar because the prep is easy and very transport friendly (all the elements get thrown in Tupperware! And the put in serving bowls and reheated I’d needed). Also people who are weight conscious can choose to go tortilla free or pick low cal components. I usually...
