Country Cat Sanctuary
Information

My Mission:

Here at "Country Cat Sanctuary" my aim is to find homes for the
abandoned cats I rescue.  Regardless of how long it takes, I will find
each cat a new home with someone who will provide it with loving
care and attention for the rest of its natural life.
When I place a cat in your home, I want to ensure that you and
your cat will enjoy many happy years to-gether.
However, if the adoption dosen't work out (or if the adopter must
give up the cat at any time) "Country Cat Sanctuary" will willingly take
the cat back and find another suitable home.


All the cats are wormed, fixed and vaccinated.  I know my cats well
and guarentee them, if your not happy with your choice I insist you
bring the cat back and I will happily return your adoption fee.

There is a small adoption fee for the cats to help cover some of the
costs.  This also helps me continue to help other cats.
             
                      

F.U.S.  Feline Urologic Syndrome
It can occur in cats of all ages, it is seen most commonly in those over
one year.  It occurs with equal frequency in both sexes, but the  anatomy
of the male makes the disease more symptomatic and increases the
likelihood of bladder obstruction.  It is more common in obese cats due
to mechanical interference with voiding.
The chief signs of FUS are prolonged squatting and straining.
Symptomatic cats urinate frequently, pass bloody urine, urinate in
unusual locations, lick the penis or vulva excessively and cry out
during the act of voiding.
Major obstructions can occur with the first episode or during sub-
sequent attacks.  With partial or complete obstruction of the urethra,
the lower abdomen becomes distended and painful to touch.  As
pressure increases in the upper urinary tract, the kidneys stop making
urine.  Toxic wastes build in the blood, leading to uremia.  The cat
looses its appetite, acts sluggish and begins to vomit.  If unrelieved,
irreversible kidney damage occurs, leading to death.  Please keep in
mind that cats often seek seclusion when ill or in pain; therefore, a
cat with symptomatic FUS should not be allowed outdoors.
A quality food, wet food fed 2 or 3 times a week, fresh water and clean
water dishes and well attended litter boxes will help alot in the likelihood
of your cat acquiring this disease.
