Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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:

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 determined by displays of aggressive or submissive behaviour. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When near the food dish, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 however, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 females became dominant – the first time this has been documented in mammals. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 And although the adults treated kittens as low-ranking, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 the kittens were allowed to eat first (Animal Behaviour, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 vol 74, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 p 1369).

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 But — wait — isn’t the Eastern Shore Sanctuary a sanctuary for chickens and ducks? That’s true enough, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 but cats… accumulate. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Whatever kind of sanctuary you think you’re running in a rural region, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 you end up running a cat sanctuary too. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 People knock on the door with starving kittens or just dump unwanted cats in your driveway. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Feral cats recognize a good food source when they find one. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Pretty soon, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 you’re schooling yourself to remember your new Golden Rule: “If you’re in a store that sells cat food, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 buy some.”

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Little Ochos Locos (AKA Loca) is the newest feline addition to our extended family. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 She showed up a couple of months ago in the hand (yes, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 hand, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Only about five weeks old, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 she must have somehow survived the drowning of her litter. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Not surprisingly, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 given that history, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 she proved to be remarkably strong and resiliant, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 eating solid food and using the cat box right away. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 (She’s also pretty cute, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 with one blue eye framed by black fur and one green eye framed by brown fur.)

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 I braced myself for disaster, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 given the well-known proclivity of kittens for ruination. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 By “wreck your life, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00” I don’t mean just climbing the drapes and keeping you up all night biting your ankles. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 I mean the solemn obligation of every kitten to tear up, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 irreparably soil, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 otherwise destroy or make magically disappear some item of vital importance to your life, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 preferably one with high monetary or sentimental value. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 But it hasn’t happened. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 At least not yet. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 And the drapes climbing and ankle biting haven’t happened either, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 even though this is an extremely clever, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 energetic, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 and playful kitten.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Why? Because other cats, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 specifically adult male cats, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 have stepped in to provide the nurturing, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 socialization, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 and play that would normally be provided to every kitten by her mother and siblings if cats were allowed to develop naturally. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Kittens wreck your life, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 I’ve discovered, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 because they’re bored. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 I have watched her wear out, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 one after the other, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 three adult cats before returning to the first for cuddling and mutual grooming. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Let me tell you about those cats. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 First up: Lucky 13. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Loca & Lucky
Loca & Lucky back when both of her eyes were still blue

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When little Loca arrived, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 she was too tiny and fragile to be let loose in a house where dogs gallop up and down the hallway. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 But I feared she would be lonely in the library. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 So, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Lucky agreed readily.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Lucky himself had been a surprise arrival only a year before. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 They decided to try that house with all the cats and chickens instead. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 He was indeed starving and also had an untreated viral infection that left him with permanent damage to one eye. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Lucky plays rough and is also a fiend about food, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 the cellular memory of hunger impelling him to push everybody else aside. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 But he was immediately gentle and deferential with little Loca, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 greeting her with grooming licks at every meeting and stepping back from the food dish whenever she indicated that she wanted to eat. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 His tenderness toward her provoked me to tears more than once.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 But Lucky likes to prowl around, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 so he couldn’t be expected to spend all of his time locked up in the library with Loca. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Enter Cat.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 loca & cat
Loca & Cat

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Yes, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 that’s his name, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 just Cat. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 He came to us as a barn cat in flight from an unsafe domestic situation. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When I would bring him his food — or, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 rather, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 bring the cat I believed to be a female cat her food — I would say, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 “Here I am with your food, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 cat” because I didn’t know “her” well enough to come up with a name yet. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Before we knew it, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 “she” was answering to “Cat” and that was that. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Cat turned out to be a gangly, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 muscular livewire with bad allergies but a good ability to get along well with animals of all species. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Eventually, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 he opted to be a mostly indoor cat, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 going out for fresh air and exercise every afternoon but otherwise staying in the house. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 He, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 too, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 didn’t mind spending time in the library with Loca. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 He’s not as affectionate with her as Lucky but makes up for it with his seemingly endless energy for play. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When she wants to wrestle or run up and down the hallway in the middle of the night, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Cat is right there for her.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When Loca wants nurturing, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 she turns to Ty-Juan. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 If Cat and Lucky 13 are her surrogate brothers, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 the giant cat called Ty-Juan is her surrogate father. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When she curls up with him, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Loca purrs so loudly that her vibrations fill the room and you glance around to see what large machine might be making that noice.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Loca & Ty-Juan
Loca & Ty-Juan

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Then, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 he was so frail that I was afraid to lift him for fear of accidentally breaking his bones. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 He spent more than a month in the library before he was well enough to mingle with the other animals. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 The next year, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 he kept Lucky company during his brief stay in the library and became his regular partner in sleep and play during his kittenhood. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 (Which, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 come to think of it, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 may explain why Lucky didn’t wreck my life either.)

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 I guess that’s why I’m so moved to see Lucky 13 — not previously known for his gentleness! — behaving so tenderly with Loca. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 It’s as if he’s passing along the care that Ty-Juan shared with him. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When her time comes, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 I’m sure Loca will find a way to pay it forward. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Already, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 she’s the most gregarious cat I’ve ever seen. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 When meeting a new animal — dog, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 cat, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 whatever — her instinct is not to hide or hiss but to touch noses and give a little lick. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 She’s pretty friendly with people too. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 She likes to groom my eyebrows and is very careful with bare skin, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 retracting her claws at the first sign of any discomfort.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 loca & arlo
She gets along with everybody!

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Volunteers like American ex-pat Deborah D’Alessandro care for the cats, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 raise funds, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 and use the unique visibility of these peculiarly located felines to advocate for cats within Italy and internationally. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 While many “dog and cat people” are neither veg*n nor supportive of animal rights, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Deborah is both. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 She also gets the other connections. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 (I first met her at an anti-war march.) Like all shelter and sanctuary staff, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 she also knows the particular stresses of animal rescue. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 I believe she’s working on a book about sanctuaries, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 including farmed animal sanctuaries, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 for publication in Italy.

Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 So, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 when in Rome… vist the cat sanctuary. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 It’s right near a metro station and anybody can tell you which stop. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 (If I’m not mistaken, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 there’s also a beautiful statue of an elephant in the vicinity, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 so take a walk around after you visit with the cats.) While some of the cats are truly feral, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 others are former strays who are eager for attention and affection. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 Let them climb all over you as you take in the ruins. Premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 And, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 if you happen to see Deborah there, premarin 0.625mg pills 56 $125.00 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.
