Our PURR-version of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” is titled “Reach Out & Pet Me” about a cat in a shelter seeking adoption and meowing about the ways he can make a difference for the lucky human willing to give him a chance. Please consider adopting a feline family member and visit your local shelter today! Find cats available at Columbia Missouri Second Chance. Only nice humans need apply!
Sing along with the Depeche Mode and CatAWhack Crew’s lyrics on the next page:
Sometimes people think that they have done everything that they can do to redirect scratch practice and if unsuccessful seek declawing amputation procedures as a last resort.
How would a veterinarian know if someone had actually tried EVERYTHING? How would the person seeking the procedure know if they had, in fact, tried EVERYTHING?
Sometimes decisions are made out of frustration, a sense of powerlessness, and a desperate need for a solution.
I want to develop an intervention checklist that peeps can utilize, kind of a step-by-step process, to determine if they have, in fact, tried EVERYTHING.
If they are armed with a multitude of potential solutions, one is bound to be effective with their particular feline family member resulting in one less amputation procedure and one more feline who remains intact – toes, paws, claws and all.
I need your help in compiling this list. It may be something that could be utilized at veterinarian offices and adoption centers across the country. Please forward to others and encourage comments.
CatAWhacka-Whoo-Whoo Thank You!
Any tree climbing enthusiasts out there?
A no fear feline mentality paired with agility, strength, and the naturally derived tree climbing claw gear can land a fellow feline up a tree with nowhere to go.
We came across a peep named Dan in Seattle who blessed with the same no fear mentality can shimmy up a rope almost as quickly as we can climb. He has one clear advantage, the ability to repel down safely and within a matter of seconds.
Thanks Dan for being at the forefront of cat-in-a-tree rescue efforts! If you happen to be in our neck of the woods, we would love to stage a race to the top of the nearest tree. Just remember Dan…Not too high K?
