Your heart holds all the happy memories, too. And their hearts hold the knowledge that you loved each of them with everything you had in you, and that you did your very best for each of them. They remember and they are waiting for you.
Heaven is suppose to be a happy place; a place that you want to go to; a place where you have no more sorrow. In order to meet those criteria our beloved pets must be there. Besides, even if there isn’t an actual place where they wait for you, they are always in your heart and those feelings go where ever you go. Ergo – you will be reunited in…[Read more]
John, call around to local rescues and vets. See if you can find a lactating mama cat who has either lost her kittens, or just recently had her babies adopted out. Many shelters will allow you to foster both the mama and the adopted kittens without ending up keeping all of them. (Of course, you are going to keep a couple of them because you…[Read more]
Julie died yesterday in Florida from complications of a heart surgery. Julie has been part of TDK and TDKFacebook for years and years. Many of us met her when a member from England visited the US and set up TDK meets as she hopped across the country.
Our hearts are saddened by the loss of a member who was much too young to leave us.

Every happy and painless minute she has with you is a blessing. Enjoy her now and know you will have an eternity to enjoy her in the future.
When you take the can out of the refrigerator to give him more, mix in some warm water. I usually use about 2/3 food and 1/3 water. Slightly warm food smells better to cats, plus you’ll know he’s getting sufficient liquid. You could also use warm kitten milk. The little bit of extra liquid will keep him from getting constipated again.
Gosh, Cheri, that sounds like she’s discriminating because of your disability. I don’t know about New York, but that’s flat out illegal in California. If she’s worried about the possibility that you might need help during the night, go get yourself a Life Alert or similar medical alarm system.
It would probably be a good idea to get one…[Read more]
You could try placing a series of boxes, chairs, etc, next to your bed so they can climb the stairs. A ramp might help too. You could wedge a piece of wood between the mattress and box springs on the side where you won’t trip over it.
If you have an old blanket or sheet that you don’t care too much about, put that over the whole bed.
I would agree with Reem; April has had some unhappy experiences with hands.
Instead of lowering your hand from over her head, try putting it palm-up on the floor in front of her. I have a rescue kitty who cringes if your hand comes over her head, but will put her head in the cup of your hand.
She may also have ear mites or some other problem…[Read more]
Shared mothering is perfectly normal. What you do need to worry about is the toms. They have been known to kill kittens. Intact male animals often kill their kittens, pups, etc. It’s what they do in the wild to make sure only their own DNA gets passed to the pack.
I’m sorry for your loss; it’s heartwrenching to lose our furbabies. Think of what her life would have been like if you hadn’t found in when she was so tiny. She would have died cold, hungry, unloved and alone. Even though you only got to keep her here with you for such a short time, you filled her life with warmth and love. You’ll see her…[Read more]
There are two subjects we are not suppose to discuss in these forums, one is whether it’s okay to allow your cat access to the outdoors, and the other is declawing. They are listed in the “Read before posting” section.
In the past both those topics have become VERY heated and resulted in some less than pleasant things being said.…[Read more]
