I am a cat whisperer. Strays and Ferals find me - not the other way around. I can usually tame them pretty easily. On a very basic psychological level you see, I *am* the stray. I've *been* homeless and in even now being impoverished, I rely on food pantries and churches that serve meals, so yes, I readily identify with their plight.
Anyhow, does anyone know of a place to get meds? I am pretty competent in dosing and treating, and most of them give me fair liberty in doing what I need to do when there are cuts, eye goops or whatever. When I first started caring for this colony of some 13 cats, I got Fishmox and Brewer's Yeast, and for my oldest guy who has stomatitis and had horrid raw patches from a flea allergy, I treated him with Prednisone tabs leftover from my cat who lost his battle last November. Happily, the old man's raw spots are gone and I'm currently waiting on flea treatment that my friend is sending to me in the mail. (I know people, lol)
However, those people don't readily have what other things I need right now which primarily is Drontal - one of the strays who is now 3/4 my inside cat surely has worms. He's skinny as a rail and eats ALL the time. I know Drontal isn't that expensive, but understand here people, I'm not working and my son's ssi check doesn't go far. I also need ear mite meds or a solution/home remedy for this problem.
ANY home remedies are welcome for that matter. Many of these cats have mouth/teeth issues that would really require dental care that I omg cannot afford, most have the ear mites, fleas, flea dirt up the ying-yang, cuts, bites here and there... you know how it is. Thanks in advance for resources and home remedies. Below is a pic of the old man, Grizzly. He looks far better tonight than in this photo, but you can see his poor mouth. Here is a link to my Flickr page/set of the strays if anyone cares to look. I try to bring their beauty to light: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sp202/s...7635207680504/
