Viagra canadian New Scientist magazine reports that “female alley cats call the shots at mealtime” and that large tom cats defer to little kittens at the food dish:

Viagra canadian Roberto Bonanni of the University of Parma in Italy and colleagues found that feral cats in a courtyard in Rome also had a pecking order, viagra canadian determined by displays of aggressive or submissive behaviour. Viagra canadian When near the food dish, viagra canadian however, viagra canadian females became dominant – the first time this has been documented in mammals. Viagra canadian And although the adults treated kittens as low-ranking, viagra canadian the kittens were allowed to eat first (Animal Behaviour, viagra canadian vol 74, viagra canadian p 1369).

Viagra canadian This is consistent with what we have observed here at the sanctuary and gives me an opportunity to tell you my theory of why kittens wreck your life.

Viagra canadian But — wait — isn’t the Eastern Shore Sanctuary a sanctuary for chickens and ducks? That’s true enough, viagra canadian but cats… accumulate. Viagra canadian Whatever kind of sanctuary you think you’re running in a rural region, viagra canadian you end up running a cat sanctuary too. Viagra canadian People knock on the door with starving kittens or just dump unwanted cats in your driveway. Viagra canadian Feral cats recognize a good food source when they find one. Viagra canadian Pretty soon, viagra canadian you’re schooling yourself to remember your new Golden Rule: “If you’re in a store that sells cat food, viagra canadian buy some.”

Viagra canadian Little Ochos Locos (AKA Loca) is the newest feline addition to our extended family. Viagra canadian She showed up a couple of months ago in the hand (yes, viagra canadian hand, viagra canadian not hands) of an abashed man who found her in the reeds by the river but then couldn’t convince any of his relatives to take her in. Viagra canadian Only about five weeks old, viagra canadian she must have somehow survived the drowning of her litter. Viagra canadian Not surprisingly, viagra canadian given that history, viagra canadian she proved to be remarkably strong and resiliant, viagra canadian eating solid food and using the cat box right away. Viagra canadian (She’s also pretty cute, viagra canadian with one blue eye framed by black fur and one green eye framed by brown fur.)

Viagra canadian I braced myself for disaster, viagra canadian given the well-known proclivity of kittens for ruination. Viagra canadian By “wreck your life, viagra canadian” I don’t mean just climbing the drapes and keeping you up all night biting your ankles. Viagra canadian I mean the solemn obligation of every kitten to tear up, viagra canadian irreparably soil, viagra canadian otherwise destroy or make magically disappear some item of vital importance to your life, viagra canadian preferably one with high monetary or sentimental value. Viagra canadian

Viagra canadian But it hasn’t happened. Viagra canadian At least not yet. Viagra canadian And the drapes climbing and ankle biting haven’t happened either, viagra canadian even though this is an extremely clever, viagra canadian energetic, viagra canadian and playful kitten.

Viagra canadian Why? Because other cats, viagra canadian specifically adult male cats, viagra canadian have stepped in to provide the nurturing, viagra canadian socialization, viagra canadian and play that would normally be provided to every kitten by her mother and siblings if cats were allowed to develop naturally. Viagra canadian Kittens wreck your life, viagra canadian I’ve discovered, viagra canadian because they’re bored. Viagra canadian Even the most doting human companion bearing toys and kisses cannot provide the all-day-every-day socialization and stimulation that I have watched this kitten receive from a gang of caring cats. Viagra canadian I have watched her wear out, viagra canadian one after the other, viagra canadian three adult cats before returning to the first for cuddling and mutual grooming. Viagra canadian

Viagra canadian Let me tell you about those cats. Viagra canadian First up: Lucky 13. Viagra canadian

Viagra canadian Loca & Lucky
Loca & Lucky back when both of her eyes were still blue

Viagra canadian When little Loca arrived, viagra canadian she was too tiny and fragile to be let loose in a house where dogs gallop up and down the hallway. Viagra canadian But I feared she would be lonely in the library. Viagra canadian So, viagra canadian I decided to see if one of the more trustworthy cats might like to spend time with her when I couldn’t be with her. Viagra canadian Lucky agreed readily.

Viagra canadian Lucky himself had been a surprise arrival only a year before. Viagra canadian He was brought to the door by two developmentally disabled youth who said that they had found a “starving kitten” under their grandmother’s porch and been directed by their grandmother to leave him in a field. Viagra canadian They decided to try that house with all the cats and chickens instead. Viagra canadian He was indeed starving and also had an untreated viral infection that left him with permanent damage to one eye. Viagra canadian

Viagra canadian Lucky plays rough and is also a fiend about food, viagra canadian the cellular memory of hunger impelling him to push everybody else aside. Viagra canadian But he was immediately gentle and deferential with little Loca, viagra canadian greeting her with grooming licks at every meeting and stepping back from the food dish whenever she indicated that she wanted to eat. Viagra canadian His tenderness toward her provoked me to tears more than once.

Viagra canadian But Lucky likes to prowl around, viagra canadian so he couldn’t be expected to spend all of his time locked up in the library with Loca. Viagra canadian Enter Cat.

Viagra canadian loca & cat
Loca & Cat

Viagra canadian Yes, viagra canadian that’s his name, viagra canadian just Cat. Viagra canadian He came to us as a barn cat in flight from an unsafe domestic situation. Viagra canadian When I would bring him his food — or, viagra canadian rather, viagra canadian bring the cat I believed to be a female cat her food — I would say, viagra canadian “Here I am with your food, viagra canadian cat” because I didn’t know “her” well enough to come up with a name yet. Viagra canadian Before we knew it, viagra canadian “she” was answering to “Cat” and that was that. Viagra canadian

Viagra canadian Cat turned out to be a gangly, viagra canadian muscular livewire with bad allergies but a good ability to get along well with animals of all species. Viagra canadian He often tried to provoke roosters and ducks into playing chase with him and always seemed so disappointed when they just stood there gaping at him as he did his little side-step. Viagra canadian Eventually, viagra canadian he opted to be a mostly indoor cat, viagra canadian going out for fresh air and exercise every afternoon but otherwise staying in the house. Viagra canadian He, viagra canadian too, viagra canadian didn’t mind spending time in the library with Loca. Viagra canadian He’s not as affectionate with her as Lucky but makes up for it with his seemingly endless energy for play. Viagra canadian When she wants to wrestle or run up and down the hallway in the middle of the night, viagra canadian Cat is right there for her.

Viagra canadian When Loca wants nurturing, viagra canadian she turns to Ty-Juan. Viagra canadian If Cat and Lucky 13 are her surrogate brothers, viagra canadian the giant cat called Ty-Juan is her surrogate father. Viagra canadian When she curls up with him, viagra canadian Loca purrs so loudly that her vibrations fill the room and you glance around to see what large machine might be making that noice.

Viagra canadian Loca & Ty-Juan
Loca & Ty-Juan

Viagra canadian Ty-Juan was more than half-starved himself when he moved in; his body had already begun to digest itself when former students led me to him on the first day of school in 2005. Viagra canadian Then, viagra canadian he was so frail that I was afraid to lift him for fear of accidentally breaking his bones. Viagra canadian He spent more than a month in the library before he was well enough to mingle with the other animals. Viagra canadian The next year, viagra canadian he kept Lucky company during his brief stay in the library and became his regular partner in sleep and play during his kittenhood. Viagra canadian (Which, viagra canadian come to think of it, viagra canadian may explain why Lucky didn’t wreck my life either.)

Viagra canadian I guess that’s why I’m so moved to see Lucky 13 — not previously known for his gentleness! — behaving so tenderly with Loca. Viagra canadian It’s as if he’s passing along the care that Ty-Juan shared with him. Viagra canadian When her time comes, viagra canadian I’m sure Loca will find a way to pay it forward. Viagra canadian Already, viagra canadian she’s the most gregarious cat I’ve ever seen. Viagra canadian When meeting a new animal — dog, viagra canadian cat, viagra canadian whatever — her instinct is not to hide or hiss but to touch noses and give a little lick. Viagra canadian She’s pretty friendly with people too. Viagra canadian She likes to groom my eyebrows and is very careful with bare skin, viagra canadian retracting her claws at the first sign of any discomfort.

Viagra canadian loca & arlo
She gets along with everybody!

Viagra canadian Another reason I’m glad about the New Scientist report on that study of feral cats in Rome is that it gives me an excuse to tell you about one of my favorite organizations and one of my favorite people: The Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary and Deborah D’Alessandro. Viagra canadian

Viagra canadian Located at Largo di Torre Argentina in Rome (the temple where cat-phobic Julius Caesar was assassinated) was founded when archaeologists gave the keys to its underground caves to two Roman women who were caring for the colonies of feral cats who had moved in among the ruins. Viagra canadian Volunteers like American ex-pat Deborah D’Alessandro care for the cats, viagra canadian raise funds, viagra canadian and use the unique visibility of these peculiarly located felines to advocate for cats within Italy and internationally. Viagra canadian

Viagra canadian While many “dog and cat people” are neither veg*n nor supportive of animal rights, viagra canadian Deborah is both. Viagra canadian She also gets the other connections. Viagra canadian (I first met her at an anti-war march.) Like all shelter and sanctuary staff, viagra canadian she also knows the particular stresses of animal rescue. Viagra canadian I believe she’s working on a book about sanctuaries, viagra canadian including farmed animal sanctuaries, viagra canadian for publication in Italy.

Viagra canadian So, viagra canadian when in Rome… vist the cat sanctuary. Viagra canadian It’s right near a metro station and anybody can tell you which stop. Viagra canadian (If I’m not mistaken, viagra canadian there’s also a beautiful statue of an elephant in the vicinity, viagra canadian so take a walk around after you visit with the cats.) While some of the cats are truly feral, viagra canadian others are former strays who are eager for attention and affection. Viagra canadian Let them climb all over you as you take in the ruins. Viagra canadian And, viagra canadian if you happen to see Deborah there, viagra canadian tell her pattrice says “yo.”

    Thank you for a great discussion on cats! Cats have always found their way to my doorstep. I had four cats living with me (a low number for me) a little over a year ago; Che – I call him my first born, the first cat that I cared for after moving out of my parents house, Gani – a friend found her as a kitten in his grandma’s yard, my boss at the time took me there to get her and found that she was very skinny and had a thick coating of mites and fleas (pattrice, I think you may have met both of them when you came here?), the other two are Gassy, a cat that came to my family’s home when I was 14, my father was moving and decided he didn’t want this old kitty any more, and Juri, who literally appeared on my doorstep about 2 1/2 years ago, skinny as a rail and amazingly lovable. Last summer, Che began to quickly lose weight, the vet said that he had a cyst on his kidney and had less than a month to live. He was 5. Che died at home about a week later. It was horrible, I hadn’t experienced grief like that since my mom died about 1 1/2 years before. A few months later, Gassy began to lose weight and stopped eating. I took her to the vet on a friday, she was still undergoing testing when she died on Saturday night. She was 12, so the vet said it was probably old age. Then it was just Juri, Gani and I, we moved into a single apartment, where they became good friends. It had been about a year since Juri had been to the vet, so I took him to get a check up, and the vet noticed his heart beat was funny. She said it is something we will have to watch. About four days later, I fed them breakfast, and turned around to put my shoes on, and turned back to say goodbye for the day, and Juri was on the ground panting. He died within a few minutes, the vet guessed it was a heart attack. Needless to say, it has been a rough couple of years. Gani and I moved in with a friend who lives with 6 cats and 2 dogs. Gani has had trouble getting used to the new situation, I think she was still grieving when we moved. She stays in my bedroom. For me, I love being in a house full of cats again, I don’t know what I would do without cats. Sorry! Rambled. Thanks for the story!

  • Oh, Angie, I am so sorry for your many recent losses but so glad to hear about the loving care you gave to Che, Gassy, and Juri. I hope that you and Gani are taking good care of each other in your shared grief. I do remember cats from when I came to speak at your school. Didn’t one of them crash on the bed with me?

  • Angie Pohlman

    Thank you, pattrice, it has really been hard (as I am sure you know) dealing with other humans while grieving for an animal. I am sure some one crashed with you, do you remember their color (if he was black, it was Che, if she was a greyish calico, Gani).

  • Kimberlee

    Thank you for posting this. I found it moving myself, as I read it with my cat in my lap.
