Hope your kitty is doing much better!!
I have so many questions...I really care for this cat that was here before we moved in. The neighbors gave me her history and all I can say is she
should be able to enjoy a pampered, retired life.
When the weather is nice, she loves being in her element [outside]. She acts more like a dog when it comes to protecting us and has no issues doing
the official butt-sniff dog greet with my corgi. She does it almost daily with him.
What to do with a neighborhood 'bully' cat that chases her off the porch, won't let her eat or come inside?
I don't know but Sweetie lived life outside and meows VERY LOUDLY if she can't be let out. I think it would be cruel to her if I kept her insde all
the time. She has spent 5 years being an 'outdoor cat, I wouldn't want to break her spirit.
She is sooo sweet! She walks with my kid to the bus stop, 'helps' me with yard work and also lets me know when strange animals or people come into
The bully cat chases her out of the yard and attacks her at night for 'sleeping spots.
She doesn't seem to be near as confident as she was.
She knows she can trust me but its soo different at night in the animal world.
Im not sure what to do. Keep her inside, only go out when I do?
I was raised around dogs and could write a novel on dog psychology, but cats???......I am clueless and TG for the net because we rescued a momma cat
and her babies during a winter storm.....learned alot but not enough to 'know' cats like I 'know' dogs.
For example a half benedryl will calm a dog down and prednisone works for dogs.
I don't have a clue when it comes to cats as far as medical.
I guess I am asking for help on a wonderful cat who deserves so much better than what she has had.
Keeping her inside is not an option for her. I tried to last winter and she got 'depressed' .
So all you inductees who know cats.....please educate me
Thanks.... and P.S.====I may not be a nice poster when it comes to other threads, but for animals....I love the ones in my life better than most
