Desperately need help from a cat rescue

Somebody dumped a cat off on my property (I'm in the country) He's been keeping himself in my barn but he really wants to come into my house. I have been feeding him because he is friendly but this afternoon I found him totally beat up by something. He has cuts and scratches all over his head and he needs to be rescued by someone. I can't take him in as I already have 13 cats and 2 dogs to take care of. I know I could get him into a carrier with some food, but I just need a place to bring him. The vets I called want nothing to do with him unless I pay $200 which I can't afford. If anyone can take him in to clean him up and give him a home, please, please message me. Even if he had to be put down it would be a far better fate than what's going to end up to him here. My email is sonicsink@yahoo.com

I have no answer for you and I feel really sad for the poor cat,seeing you already have 13 cats,would one more make such a difference:confused:
Hopefully you'll find a solution for him,obviously dumped by some moronic person:yell:

Somebody should be logged on soon that can help you. Have you called SPCA Montreal?

Do you drive Sonic? If so then I can make arrangements for him to get medical care at my vet's. I can't take him in though and the first thing I would do is FIV test him as I don't believe in keeping positive cats alive to die slowly over a few years. After that, if all is well then you need a plan for him. Cats are a dime a dozen and an outside one is almost impossible to place sadly. I have 2 here that illustrate that.

Unfortunately, yes, one more would make a difference. We're having trouble with some of our males right now, they have started fighting and spraying. The last thing I need now is to throw another male in the mix.

I haven't called the SPCA but I did once a few years ago and they told me I'd have to trap it myself and bring it in, or I could rent a cage from them. I'm assuming nothing has changed?

I do drive but I have anxiety which makes it so I can't drive on anything other than the small roads around here. Anything bigger and I get too anxious, plus I have my 2 small kids with me at all times so I'd rather not go out too far.

Does our MSPCA have the animal control contract for the Rigaud area, anyone know? If so they will come and pick him up but yes there has been change in management (maybe you'll have better luck)

Hopefully BenMax will sign in soon, she will know

Thank you for caring :fingerscr

Where is this cat now and what do you think might have attacked him in your barn? :sad:

I feel sooooooooo sorry for cats in this province...too many cats/kittens and not enough HUMAN BEINGS to care for them. What idiots that keep dumping them and leaving them for others to pick up their messes :yell::yell::yell:

This is the correct animal control. I highly doubt however that they will save this cat. Please find out how they euthanize and please give me this information. I am working on animal controls, shelters and pounds and their method of euthanasia.

Is this cat feral or friendly?

I wouldn't take him to the Montreal SPCA just yet. They have too many cats and like they told me 2 weeks ago, all they may do is put them down ( i am talking about the cat and babies I brought in). I can lend you a trap, if you need it.

sonicsink
June 4th, 2009, 11:23 AM
Gah! I know he could be saved if a rescue could take him. He's super friendly, always weaving around my legs when I come out and feed him. He was most likely someones pet who got tired of him. He wants to come into my house, he wants a home :cry: I hate the thought of having him destroyed because some jackass dumped him.

I'm not sure where he is right now, I haven't seen him since last night when I gave him some kibble. I'll be able to go out to the barn later this afternoon when my littlest one goes for his nap to check and see if he's there.

Here are some pictures of him. The first is what he looked like when I fisrt noticed him coming around here mid-April, the next 2 are what he looks like now. My son calls him Johnny Cat.

June 4th, 2009, 12:05 PM
His fur looks like that because it seems he tussled in the mud with whatever attacked him.

I can't bring him to the vet, I have 2 dogs that have to get vaccinations next week and a guinea pig that I need to treat for lice. I'm stretched as it is. I just don't have an extra $200 to spend on him. Believe me, if I did I would but I can't. This is what makes it so hard. I'm just hoping a rescue with some vet connections can take him.

June 4th, 2009, 12:22 PM
Rescues, shelters, pounds are all overflowing with cats and kittens. We just took 2 in and they will be aborted this week (no one reprimand me for this please....it's the best option and yes I feel horrible about it).

I would ask a foundation to help but I just brought 5 kittens to them and they are going to kill me if I ask. I did not leave a donation but did commit myself to volunteer in lieu of.

Do you have a listing of all rescues that you can plead to? Also, it is very difficult if you cannot drive. Everyone is going nuts right now trying to scramble and save animals all over this province.

CCDS brings the animals to montreal spca for euthanasia. This cat looks like he has full blown rhino right now judging by the eyes etc.

Have you tried CASCA? They are out your way and the lady may try to help, she does mainly ferals.

Montreal SPCA is getting upwards of 20 cats per day so this guy would not be a candidate to keep I'm afraid.

OMG! what a misery poor Johnnyboy is! :eek: He has definitely been in a ferocious fight with another male, or maybe a racoon, with the evidence of the nasty bites on his face, which will lead to a serious infection if he doesn't get an antibiotic. Could you buy some antibiotic from your vet?

I have a small wire dog crate set up in the barn right now with some cushions in it waiting for him to show up. At this point I'm relativly confident that with a plate of wet food, I can just get him to follow me/the plate right into the crate.

Here's hoping he shows up soon!

I'VE GOT HIM! Right in time for diner! I lured him right into the crate with the plate of food. He's not too happy about being in there though. There's some pus coming out of his head between his eye and his ear, his eye looks less swollen though so I guess that's good. Just banging out some plans with his angel for a pick-up. I'll let you all know what happens :)
Here he is resting in the crate:

Wonderful news! Well done!:thumbs up He likely developed an abscess from the bites from the other animal and the fact that it is starting to drain is actually good. Hopefully a trip to the vet and a round of antibiotics and he will be good as new. You are an angel too for all you have done for him. Sadly there are too many people in this world who would not have done as much as you have. Between you:angel: and the other angel:angel: that is coming, he now has an excellent chance of finding a forever home. Yes, do continue to keep us posted.

Thank you everyone for your help, I posted about Johnny Cat's plight on another message board that I'm usually on (not pet related) and everyone was so touched by his story that they have started a donation fund to help his angel pay for the vet expenses.

She'll be here tomorrow at 6:30 after work to pick him up. She's making a 2 hour trip to come get him. I love the power of the internet!

June 6th, 2009, 10:57 PM
A real miracle has happened to Johnny Cat. The people over on my other message board have raised almost $400 to put towards his care and vet bills. His angel came and picked him up Friday evening. He took to her instantly. He wasn't nervous about going into the car at all, it's as if he knew that only good things were ahead for him.

Here is some updates so far from his angel:
Other than a few raowrs, Johnny was pretty quiet in the car. We did have a bit of a pooping incident but we took care of that when we got home. My car is going need to be aired out. He's a tad bit stinky right now, poor boy.

He's all tucked into the cat kennel in my laundry room. He had a bit of a sponge bath. I wanted to see if I could clean up any of his wounds and encourage them to keep draining. He has abcesses on both sides of his head. But he let me touch them, which is a good sign. He let me clean them up the best I could. I think the warm washcloth felt good to him. And I got a dose of antibiotics into him. He has a cat pan, some water and he had some food. It was funny, I'm used to feeding my cats who eat only eat about a tablespoon of wet food at a time. He had that scoop of food gone in a blink of an eye and asked for more

He is such a sweetheart, when I was washing his face he was purring and he had his tongue stuck out. He was definately someone's cat, no doubt, he is from house cat stock. . I was able to pick him up to transfer him to the other cat kennel without a complaint.

Here he is loaded up and ready to go
http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l46/plantchick/JohnnyCat001.jpg

Johnny did very well in the car and at the vet. The vet says that his injuries are not life-threatening if treated. The big issue is the abcesses/infection in his head area.

He is anywhere from 1.5 to 3 years old
The head wounds are the most serious, there are a few puncture, bite wounds.
His nose/face was so swollen he was having difficulty breathing
His tongue is ripped, looked like what ever he tangled with, tried to rip his face off.
He is missing a couple of the small bottom teeth, that's why his tongue sticks out
This wasn't his 1st fight, but she thinks most of his wounds are more recent.
He has lots of superfical scarring on his shoulders etc
He is missing a couple of toes on one of his back paws. We couldn't get a good look at it today though.

Today, he got a long acting shot of antibiotics, revolution and I have some stuff to give him later for worms and ear mites. The plan is to drop him off on Monday morning for the snip snip. She will neuter him either Monday or Tuesday. Which will thankfully get rid of the pungent odor of unaltered male :yuck:While he is under, she'll clean out his ears, clean out the pus from his wounds, stitch up anything that needs to stitched and check out the toe situation. She's going to have her vet student bath him while he is out too. He may have to stay a couple of days based on what she finds when she does all that

In a couple of weeks he will need to go back for his shots. She doesn't want to vaccinate until he is healed. His body and immune system are under enough stress right now without adding in anything else

I stopped by my sisters on the way home and my nephew gave him a reiki session, he was hilarious rolling around on his back and trying to get closer to him. We brought him back home and my sis helped me set up the jumbo dog kennel I bought for him. He has a cat pan in one corner. Some soft towels in another corner and food and water. I'm trying to feed him every couple of hours, so that he's getting food but he is not gorging himself.

I asked my vet straight out, Do you think he will make the transition to house cat? Is there anything that gives you concern either health wise or temperment wise? She said absolutely not. He was very good natured when he was being examined, except for the temperature thing but who can blame him. ;) She said she thinks he is a lover since it's evident he's not much of a fighter. He is starved for attention, poor guy just wants someone to love him.

Oh and he has been renamed sort of.... my nephew said he reminded him of the tom cat from the Aristocats. So I now give you Johnny O'Malley:

sonicsink, I was just wondering, because of all his wounds; is there some way the vet can check for rabies? I hope he doesn't have it, but you don't know if he has an up to date rabies shot, so I was just wondering with all the wounds he has.

I am so glad you rescued him and the people on the other forum got together to help this sweet boy! And thank your angel friend for me for taking him in. It just breaks my heart when animals are hurt.

Here is another Johnny Cat update:


He's been fed and had his litter scooped (Yay he used it and I didn't notice any spraying!) I gave him a bit of dry food last night and watched him eat. It dawned on me that his mouth must be pretty sore. So he's getting Whiskas meaty pouches for now. He's had 2 pouches so far this am.

He seems to be perking up more, and the wounds don't look quite as bad. But when I feel his head, it's still pretty swollen. I have to remember it's only day 2 of his antibiotics. The one right in front of his ear is still oozing a bit.

It was funny this morning, I wanted to give him a bit more of a sponge bath, he wanted nothing to do with the wet cloth But his desire to be petted outweighed his dislike of the wet cloth. So I would pet him and rub his head using the face cloth. Oh and bless be, the stench isn't quite as bad this morning. I feel a bit bad I haven't spent as much time with him as I would like. Today, i'm doing laundry so i'll let him out of the kennel when i'm down there and let him sniff around

I also messaged her asking about blood tests and she says:
He'll be getting tested, I think they're going to draw the blood when he is out for his surgery. He'll also be tested for FELV - feline aids. I want to make sure he's healthy or at least someone knows what they're dealing with if he does have any health issues.

He nipped me this morning, but didn't break skin. As soon as I said, ouch Johnny that hurt, he backed off and started head butting me. He's going to need a lot of socialization so that he learns that's not appropriate. I think as he gets more attention and feels secure, those behaviours will go away. He needs to learn that that's not an acceptable way to express himself. Last thing I want is for someone to adopt him and then think he is agressive or him to nip someone

Anyone have any tips for the nipping? He did the same to me when I was petting him. It's like the petting was so good, he got way over excited.

Anyone have any tips for the nipping? He did the same to me when I was petting him. It's like the petting was so good, he got way over excited.

Sounds to me like those are just little love bites. Lots of cat do that when they're blissfully excited or a bit over stimulated. If they're just quick and gentle, I actually wouldn't do anything about it myself. Reprimanding the cat might make him anxious about the whole petting thing. A better idea is to just stop the petting session and walk away.

If the bites get harder or there seems to be more aggression behind them (tail is thrashing, ears are back, paws/claws latch on to your hand or arm), then the key is to stop petting before it gets to that stage. Watch for signals of over-stimulation, like the twitching tail, rippling skin, maybe the pupils dilate or eyes go wide. Stop all touching of the cat as soon as you see the signs and wait for him to calm down a bit.

Some cats have a quirk where they can't help themselves, they just go a bit squirrelly from physical touch, like maybe they're too sensitive. It's probably best not to place cats like that in a family with children. But I'm not sure that's the case with this orange guy. Little love bites like what cats give each other during prolonged grooming sessions are nothing to worry about and are not signs of aggression, just bliss.

I'm glad to hear Johnny O'Malley is doing so well, thanks to you and his other angel. I'm sure he will make a fine companion to some lucky person or family. I totally agree with what sugarcatmom had to say. It definitely sounds like "love bites" to me too and best to just stop the petting session. I'm sure he will soon get the message that "love bites" are not appreciated by most "two legged" creatures.:D ;) Thanks for keeping us up-to-date on his progress!

Another Johnny Cat update:

Aiy! Not such a quiet ride home this time. Johnny mewed, meowed & yowled for most of the 40 minute drive home.

He had his surgery this morning and it was over in no time, they cleaned out his wound, shaved a bit of his hair, trimmed his his nails and gave him a bath. He is looking much much better. He was really agitated when the vet was trying to fill me in on everything, so we kept it short and sweet. The only time he would settle was when he was draped over my shoulder. She says it's b/c of the anaesthetic and the pain meds. He's wearing a plastic collar which is throwing him off balance.

I got him home and the poor guy was just starving. As soon as we got into the laundry room and I let him out of the carrier, he went right to the shelf where his cat food is. Little bugger, he is such a con. He had a light dinner and tried to convince me that he really needed more food. He's settled in now with a cozy blanket and a cat nip toy.

Johnny got to meet my mum this evening and I think she is smitten.

Sorry the pic is not the best, he was not in any mood to cooperate tonight.

Bless you and thank you so much sonicsink for opening up your heart to help this poor soul and a big thank you to all his Guardian Angels who helped with the finances for the vet. It's people like you and Johnny's Angel that puts my faith back in humanity.

I pray that all his tests come out negative and that he has a full and speedy recovery from all his wounds.

I have a cat who also nips when he is over-stimulated, but I know now which signs to look for and when they do, I stop petting him and just walk away.

sonicsink, Thanks so very much for getting such fabulous help for Johnny. You're an :angel2: and the person who picked him up and took him to the vet. I'm glad he's getting neutered as that's what got him into all his scraps in the first place. He sounds like a very sweet boy and will make someone a lovely pet. I wouldn't worry about his biting. He's probably still sore and hurting from all that's been done to him. As others have said watch for signs that he's getting overstimulated, and if he does nip you make a sound of a cat or kitten that got bitten. Some cats don't realize how hard they're biting unless you make a sound. Rather than Johnny O'Malley, I think his name should be Lucky Johnny. Had you not managed to get him into the carrier :angel:, he surely would've got a terrible infection and died from it. Good job! :thumbs up

Sonic, I'm just a few minutes west of you and we have had trouble with fishers, foxes, and racoons. Especially this time of year, they will try to kill almost anything to feed their own babies. Our Miss Mitten who was dumped here 4 years ago, will play out back during the day but we bring her in every day at 5 pm for dinner and a safe night indoors.
Of course today is crappy rain and guess who is sleeping upside down on my bed? ;)
Many of these dumped cats regain their trust in people and make great pets.
Best wishes to Johnny cat. So handsome.

No he was still intact, he got the big snip last week. His angel says there have thankfully been no spraying incidents.

Johnny looks fantastic compared to how he looked after his dreadful fight. That wasn't his only fight, judging by the notches in his ears. No wonder he's so loving, now that he's all fixed up, has a comfortable life and loving home. Good work! :thumbs up

Just bumping this up to let everyone know that Johnny Cat is ready to go up for adoption. He is being fostered in Ottawa, but I'm pretty sure that his Angel will be willing to travel a bit to meet his new family half way (depending how far you are).

If you are interested, please email me at: sonicsink@yahoo.com and I'll pass your details along
