    My cats

    Ronja was born in a catcolony and was trapped when she was 3 months old, I adopted her when she was 5 months.
    Sheīs 11 now.

    Maja was born and grew up in a big colony we took care of.
    She was pregnant when she was trapped and later her kittens were stillborn.
    But they were several catmothers in a room and Maja took the kittens from another cat.
    That cat was young and the fur was so matted that the kittens couldnīt find the teats.
    Maja took care of the kittens and defended them against all humans, she was very agressive then.
    She came to me after the kittens were adopted, it will be 10 years this summer.
    Last year I could began to pet her and hold her and she was purring.
    Maybe itīs an award after Iīve been her servant for 10 years
    She hasnīt been aggressive to me but we have had different opinions about going to the veterinarian

    Larissa and Linnea came from a catcolony 9 years ago, Larissa managed to escape some years ago


    Ariel came as a kitten together with her mother and brothers.
    The mothercat had an owner who went on a very long vacation leaving the catfamily to fend fo themselves.
    Ariel broke her leg when she was 4 months, she was sitting in a big pot and I suppose when she jumped down a paw was stuck in the houseplant.
    Even if you have indoorcats accidents can happen.

    Kajsa and Daisy came from a hoarder.
    I wasnīt going to have more cats then but when they talked about they didnīt know what to do with Kajsa,she was too shy..then I took her.
    Compared with cats I had or had had from atcolonies I didnīt consider Kajsa that shy and Daisy was quite young so I thought I could find a new home for her.
    I did but she came back, she didnīt want to leave her friends

    Gullan and Wille their mother hadnīt been spayed and a workmate said her husband were going to do something with them I wouldnīt like..
    She promised to spay the cat but didnīt...

    Iīve been a fosterhome for maybe 50 cats and kittens and I loved them all but I never said no if someone wanted to adopt them.

    Besides Larissa 3 other cats escaped from me , 2 escaped from a shed the day after I got them.I think I saw one of the cats 5 years later and a neighbour saw another black and white cat.
    These 3 cats are not my cats I was a fosterhome to them.
    When they escaped I put food outside and I think every cat in the neighbourhood came to eat.I managed to trap another cat who had escaped.

    I still put out food but I think itīs just my own cats who eats it now.
    But you never know the escapees might return one day.
    It could be that my cats defend their territory against other cats but they are older now .
    I remember my old male cat who used to chase all the other cats who came to his garden, but when he was 13-14 he went indoors instead sitting in the window and hissed at the other cats.
    Now I think of when Chess and Ronja- who was one year old then-were outside and another cat came.It seemed like Chess told Ronja..my paws are not good today..you can do it today and she started chasing the other cat.

    There are many fun moments I had with cats and some sad too.
    I want to help more cats but the cats I have now deserve some peace now and more attention.
    Iīve been busy trapping other cats,standing on flee markets selling things for cats, working ordinary job.

    There are still things I can do to help, tell other persons about homeless cats , when I ordered Xscape online I did it through a side which give some percent of the cost to a chosen charity, like this http://www.shoptogive.com/how-we-help.php
    I support No kill catshelters buying things,donate things , money.

    I canīt show pictures...cameras and computers..I just donīt get it.
    In many of the videos Iīve posted Iīve seen cats who look similar to my darlings.

    You are great Mist for fostering and working hard helping so many cats :bow:

    If I win a lotto, I would donate tons of money to animal shelters etc. Those shelters are usually run by people who care of animal welfare and they receive no government funding like charities for people in need.

    Oh yeah donating money to the animal shelters would be an excellent idea! I'd donate most of it to those no-kill shelters, I hate seeing cats, or any animal at that being euthanized for not being adopted after a few months :(

    When I started to help cats 10 years ago was the estimated number of homeless cats 100.000 but noone really know exact.They talk about the same number today despite all the work catshelters and rescue groups have done.
    If cats in one colony is fixed then another colony is found.
    In Sweden we are quite new to Trap-Neuter-return although in some places they have done it for years and we can see it really works.

    If I would win lots of money I would start mobile animal clinics-buses-where people can go and get stray cats and feral cats spayed/neutered, get needed veterinarian care for free.
    Catowners can use it to but pay something for it.

    Now people find cats, it can take time before catshelter/groups can help and during that time the cats get kittens.Pregnant cats ,cats with kittens and kittens use to get priority to come in but if there are many there arenīt enough places.
    Sometimes people donīt ask for help until the cats had kittens several times and the first kittens are starting to get kittens.
    If the first cat would get fixed it would be so much better.

    More campaigns to adopt are also needed.
    I think this was a good one

    Sometimes you can find very small kittens without mothers.
    Then you have to feed them around the clock and also help them to pee and poop.
    Itīs hard work and I know it happens kittens donīt survive.
    Iīve alway have had the mother cat with them when they are so young and thatīs much easier.
    I have had feral mothers but their kittens have become very friendly.

    For older feral kittens itīs good to have them in a small place.
    I have used a room with a door, it can be the bathroom.
    In a smaller area the kittens learn to get used to be indoors,used to humans, where the litterbox is.
    I used to have some hidingplaces for them where they feel safer but where I still can reach them.
    Iīve tried to spend much time with them, sometimes playing with them ,feeding them, sometimes sleeping in the room , reading, just let them get used to me.

    If you get social kittens itīs good to have them in a smaller room first so they learn where the litter box is.
    Sometimes people on catforums complain about their new kittens who donīt use the litterbox.
    The answers use to be have them in a smaller rea first and, maybe you have to have more than one litterbox.

    If you have your own social cats it can be a great help too.

    The mother cat licks her kittens in the butt to get them to pee and poo.
    You try to imitate the mother tongue by taking a damp cotton ball and rub the kittens butt.

    Some groups have workshops how to do and I think you can get support from the local shelter
