I said she wasn't staying. I said I wasn't naming her, since she wasn't staying.

Her name is Lana (shortened form of Iolana), and my husband wants to keep her, so I guess she's staying.

Color-wise, I am going with "chocolate lynx point".

And you do NOT want to know how many fleas one little stray kitten can have....

Tuesday afternoon, I kept hearing that horrible "kitten in distress" crying, but couldn't see anything through the fences. That evening, I just couldn't stand it any more, and went looking. She was two houses down from us. The people there said that she had just shown up in their yard that afternoon, and they didn't know where she came from. I've not heard any more kittens since she came home, so there's no telling where the rest of the litter is.

She hasn't been introduced to anyone yet, because she needs to be tested for FeLV/FIV first. They've seen each other from a distance, though. Bigfoot would like for us to take her back from whence she came. See-See is of the opinion that if she ignores it, it will hopefully go away. T-Max is a little too interested in her. The dogs are both wondering what the heck that squeaky thing is.

Poor thing was caked with flea dirt, so she got a bath before she got fed. She's had two more baths since then, and has has dozens of fleas combed out of her fur, since she's too small for any of the flea medications I have. I'm still picking the odd one off here and there. The other cats and both dogs are going to get their flea treatments this weekend.

Well Rosemary, I see you were remarkably successful in not naming her, NOT!

And you don't have to tell me about how many fleas one lil" kitten can have. When I was living in Venice (California, not Italy) it was a haven for discarded pets of all kinds and for an incredible number of feral packs of cats. I went out one morning because there was a kitten crying in great distress. And worse I'd found an adult very dead female cat in the back of the apartment (a two story duplex actually) looked like she'd been hit by a car and had crawled from the street to our back parking lot. And she looked like she'd be nursing kittens.

As with any packs of feral cat the other things you get are intact males who will kill any kittens they find. So I looked around the flower beds and behind some of the big pots and lo an behold a tiny grey kitten was hiding and crying. I told him if you hid you were supposed to be very quiet. He didn't take that information well--hissed at me like a snake and offered to claw me to death as well. I went back in the house to get a towel, dropped that over him and he shrieked and tried to escape. Boy, was that kitten upset.

I knew he had an overload of fleas since several had run up my arm when I picked him up. He was too young for advantage but I had some left flea shampoo.

Eueeeee! I bathed him three times the first two times the water was bloody from all the flea dirt on him--and he never stopped fighting the whole process.

I took him to the vet they looked him over and said yup a male--I already knew that. Got the phone number for the local cheap spay and neuter guys who would also talk and foster kitten too young for vaccines and too small for surgery. I prepaid the neuter and got the date that would be happening for him and told them I'd bring him back to them but I would in the meanwhile try to civalize him a since he was so obviously feral.

They called me a couple of days later to tell me to bring the kitten in they had a home for him a woman who had lost her 20 year old grey cat and wanted another grey kitty.

So he went to a real good home and hung out with people enough who all gave him food that he was actually looking like he was going to be a decent pen.

I didn't name him...it's along the same lines as hunting according to a friend of mine--If you go hunting and shoot something you gotta eat it. If you find something living and name it , it's yours--forever.

PS--that's a really cute kitten Rosemary--I'd have named her too...

Her first bath also took three shampoos before the water finally ran clear. She's had two more baths since then, and I'm probably going to bathe her again today.

And lucky for me, she's super friendly and easy to handle.

It's been nine years since I've had a baby in the house (how are T-Max and Bigfoot that old, already?!). You kind of tend to forget the "OMG, don't you have any sense of self-preservation?!" moments.....

She is a cutie! Congrats!



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

My husband dropped an ice cube. Lana found it.



She's going to the vet this Saturday for her first series of shots and FeLV/FIV testing.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that she's clear on the Felv/ftv tests--back a zillion years ago one of my very favorite cats--a feral orange cat who got caught because the colony was living in a maze of grey concrete--almost all of them were grey but the orange boy stood out like a sore thumb.

My husband brought him home--the Doberman puppy was about the same age--my husband put the kitten down on the kitchen floor and the puppy rushed up to see him--that cat puffed himself into a hissing spitting ball and the Doberman puppy sat down and said--"Yeah, bunky, you da' boss here,"


At that time there was no test for Felv--eventually they got sick and you got a dx but all feral kitties were suspect--my vet looked at the kitten sadly and said that he had more parasites that any living thing should have and that he'd probably not be long for this world because of the likelyhood of the Felv. We had him for 8 years--he was memorable enough that my husband named a sailboat after him--The Ashley T.

I've had an FIV+ cat. He was asymptomatic until the day he died. A friend of mine had an FeLV+ cat who was also asymptomatic, and who lived into her teens. But yeah, it's a lot better if they are clear for both of them, and you don't have to worry about it.

I rescued another kitten several years back, who was FeLV+, but she was already showing signs of being sick, so I had her euthanized.

The older cats are vaccinated against FeLV, but I don't think there is an FIV vaccine yet?

I don't think there is--but one of our vets told me several years ago that they probably aren't looking real hard for a vaccine that works on FIV--he said that if they only have FIV (unfortunately most kitties who have FIV also have FELV and it's the one is transmitted cat to cat more easily and is the one that really makes a mess of the immune system. ) He said that when he was a kid and FELV/FIV were really common in colonies of cats who were barn cats every so often they'd have one that lived to be ancient and his dad (also a vet) told him that those were probably cats who didn't have FELV but only FIV.

My vet at the time who had been my vet and my cats vet through most of the life of the FELV+ cat and who had euthanized that cat just looked at me when I came in with a small grey kitten (who had been living in the closet in the kids room)--but they blew it and I came home early one afternoon and there was a small grey kitten stuck to the screen on the back slider with two guilty looking girls on the other side. They said "um" a lot when I asked for an explanation so I gathered up the kitten (i'm not sure what exactly they thought I intended to do with the kitten) but I took him down to the vet--she looked at the kitten who was purring loudly and said "I'm testing him right now and if he's positive for either FELV or FIV we're going to put him to sleep--now, before he breaks both our hearts like Ashley did."

So she tested him and he was clear--thank heavens. My bad luck Calfiornia cat--at 13 he was dx'd with lung cancer--I hate taking my pets in knowing I'm not coming home with them.

B.J. was FeLV-. The only problem he had was that he was prone to abscesses from every little poke or scratch. He had a really bad one (he hid from our pet sitter the entire two weeks we were on vacation) and the infection got into his elbow joint. He got around so well on three and a half legs that most people didn't even realize his elbow was frozen.

I had her loose in the utility room the other day when she disappeared on me..... I was hearing some thumping noises, and thought that she was under the freezer (it's up on moving dollies), so I pulled out the big cats' top loading litterbox to get to her. She was in the box... chasing one of those giant tree roaches we have down here. She was rather miffed that I removed her from the box than then proceeded to beat on her playmate with a flip-flop....

She thought about taking on Paigliocco, but decided against it, thank goodness.

Yay! Her FeLV/FIV test was negative for both, and her fecal was clear (I know, knock me over with a feather....). She had her first FVRCP shot, and weighs in at 1.7 pounds of pure mischief.

ALRIGHT!!! You and Lana are both just as lucky as you can be. The odds a pretty much against picking up a stray kitten who not only was FELV/FIV negative but a clean fecal too--wow!

Every rescue I ever picked up (excluding those that I acquire via taking on a cat owned by one of our clients who couldn't keep it (three cats over the last 16 years) had an amazing array of parasites. The worst by a long shot was the cat who was FELV+. (he died of FELV at 8 but it was prior to the time that a diagnosis anything more than a guess.) But just for openers he had three kinds of mites (which are basically species specific and the vet didn't even count the ear mites he had) chicken mites, a mite that usually is only found on rodents and some other kind--don't remember that one. To add to the fleas, a couple of ticks and tape worm, and round worm. Small blessing that he didn't have ring worm and pass it on to the Doberman puppy before I got him to the vet.

She sure is cute though--the parrot would be very capable of taken a chunk out of her little nosey nose if she's not very polite.
