Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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:

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 determined by displays of aggressive or submissive behaviour. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When near the food dish, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 however, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 females became dominant – the first time this has been documented in mammals. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 And although the adults treated kittens as low-ranking, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 the kittens were allowed to eat first (Animal Behaviour, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 vol 74, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 p 1369).

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 But — wait — isn’t the Eastern Shore Sanctuary a sanctuary for chickens and ducks? That’s true enough, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 but cats… accumulate. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Whatever kind of sanctuary you think you’re running in a rural region, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 you end up running a cat sanctuary too. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 People knock on the door with starving kittens or just dump unwanted cats in your driveway. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Feral cats recognize a good food source when they find one. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Pretty soon, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 you’re schooling yourself to remember your new Golden Rule: “If you’re in a store that sells cat food, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 buy some.”

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Little Ochos Locos (AKA Loca) is the newest feline addition to our extended family. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 She showed up a couple of months ago in the hand (yes, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 hand, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Only about five weeks old, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 she must have somehow survived the drowning of her litter. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Not surprisingly, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 given that history, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 she proved to be remarkably strong and resiliant, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 eating solid food and using the cat box right away. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 (She’s also pretty cute, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 with one blue eye framed by black fur and one green eye framed by brown fur.)

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 I braced myself for disaster, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 given the well-known proclivity of kittens for ruination. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 By “wreck your life, motrin 600mg pills $154.00” I don’t mean just climbing the drapes and keeping you up all night biting your ankles. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 I mean the solemn obligation of every kitten to tear up, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 irreparably soil, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 otherwise destroy or make magically disappear some item of vital importance to your life, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 preferably one with high monetary or sentimental value. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 But it hasn’t happened. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 At least not yet. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 And the drapes climbing and ankle biting haven’t happened either, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 even though this is an extremely clever, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 energetic, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 and playful kitten.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Why? Because other cats, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 specifically adult male cats, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 have stepped in to provide the nurturing, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 socialization, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 and play that would normally be provided to every kitten by her mother and siblings if cats were allowed to develop naturally. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Kittens wreck your life, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 I’ve discovered, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 because they’re bored. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 I have watched her wear out, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 one after the other, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 three adult cats before returning to the first for cuddling and mutual grooming. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Let me tell you about those cats. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 First up: Lucky 13. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Loca & Lucky
Loca & Lucky back when both of her eyes were still blue

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When little Loca arrived, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 she was too tiny and fragile to be let loose in a house where dogs gallop up and down the hallway. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 But I feared she would be lonely in the library. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 So, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Lucky agreed readily.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Lucky himself had been a surprise arrival only a year before. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 They decided to try that house with all the cats and chickens instead. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 He was indeed starving and also had an untreated viral infection that left him with permanent damage to one eye. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Lucky plays rough and is also a fiend about food, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 the cellular memory of hunger impelling him to push everybody else aside. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 But he was immediately gentle and deferential with little Loca, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 greeting her with grooming licks at every meeting and stepping back from the food dish whenever she indicated that she wanted to eat. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 His tenderness toward her provoked me to tears more than once.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 But Lucky likes to prowl around, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 so he couldn’t be expected to spend all of his time locked up in the library with Loca. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Enter Cat.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 loca & cat
Loca & Cat

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Yes, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 that’s his name, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 just Cat. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 He came to us as a barn cat in flight from an unsafe domestic situation. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When I would bring him his food — or, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 rather, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 bring the cat I believed to be a female cat her food — I would say, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 “Here I am with your food, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 cat” because I didn’t know “her” well enough to come up with a name yet. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Before we knew it, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 “she” was answering to “Cat” and that was that. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Cat turned out to be a gangly, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 muscular livewire with bad allergies but a good ability to get along well with animals of all species. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Eventually, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 he opted to be a mostly indoor cat, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 going out for fresh air and exercise every afternoon but otherwise staying in the house. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 He, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 too, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 didn’t mind spending time in the library with Loca. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 He’s not as affectionate with her as Lucky but makes up for it with his seemingly endless energy for play. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When she wants to wrestle or run up and down the hallway in the middle of the night, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Cat is right there for her.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When Loca wants nurturing, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 she turns to Ty-Juan. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 If Cat and Lucky 13 are her surrogate brothers, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 the giant cat called Ty-Juan is her surrogate father. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When she curls up with him, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Loca purrs so loudly that her vibrations fill the room and you glance around to see what large machine might be making that noice.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Loca & Ty-Juan
Loca & Ty-Juan

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Then, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 he was so frail that I was afraid to lift him for fear of accidentally breaking his bones. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 He spent more than a month in the library before he was well enough to mingle with the other animals. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 The next year, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 he kept Lucky company during his brief stay in the library and became his regular partner in sleep and play during his kittenhood. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 (Which, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 come to think of it, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 may explain why Lucky didn’t wreck my life either.)

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 I guess that’s why I’m so moved to see Lucky 13 — not previously known for his gentleness! — behaving so tenderly with Loca. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 It’s as if he’s passing along the care that Ty-Juan shared with him. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When her time comes, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 I’m sure Loca will find a way to pay it forward. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Already, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 she’s the most gregarious cat I’ve ever seen. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 When meeting a new animal — dog, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 cat, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 whatever — her instinct is not to hide or hiss but to touch noses and give a little lick. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 She’s pretty friendly with people too. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 She likes to groom my eyebrows and is very careful with bare skin, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 retracting her claws at the first sign of any discomfort.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 loca & arlo
She gets along with everybody!

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 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. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Volunteers like American ex-pat Deborah D’Alessandro care for the cats, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 raise funds, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 and use the unique visibility of these peculiarly located felines to advocate for cats within Italy and internationally. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 While many “dog and cat people” are neither veg*n nor supportive of animal rights, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Deborah is both. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 She also gets the other connections. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 (I first met her at an anti-war march.) Like all shelter and sanctuary staff, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 she also knows the particular stresses of animal rescue. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 I believe she’s working on a book about sanctuaries, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 including farmed animal sanctuaries, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 for publication in Italy.

Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 So, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 when in Rome… vist the cat sanctuary. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 It’s right near a metro station and anybody can tell you which stop. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 (If I’m not mistaken, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 there’s also a beautiful statue of an elephant in the vicinity, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 so take a walk around after you visit with the cats.) While some of the cats are truly feral, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 others are former strays who are eager for attention and affection. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 Let them climb all over you as you take in the ruins. Motrin 600mg pills $154.00 And, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 if you happen to see Deborah there, motrin 600mg pills $154.00 tell her pattrice says “yo.”

  • Angie Pohlman

    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.
