Re: Stray "talking" cat is bossing my chickens.

He actually sounded like my late aunt Edna, grumbling and ranting all day.

(Grumpy, you also added to the comic effect with your barely suppressed chortling.)

After I played the second vid, our Lab got up and discreetly ambled off to the bathroom (where there are no evil, invisible, complaining cats, apparently).

Re: Stray "talking" cat is bossing my chickens.

So, cute.
He'll probably stay.
Our stray (also a Tabby) walked in 18 months ago (she came for the dog food) ... and just successfully survived her relocation from Dubai to the Bernese Oberland this week.
She already had a serious talk with the frogs in the neighbor's garden.

Any news on Frosty?
Sorry, more important things came up when you asked this question.

We took Frosty to the vet and he is not chipped and no-one around knows where he might have come from so he has made our stable his home. He still eats a lot but we are trying to keep him on a diet although he's still a bit aggressive with the other cats sometimes..... which means another trip to the vets for a snip or 2...

Re: Stray "talking" cat is bossing my chickens.

Probably best all around to get him snipped, so new little Frostys don't end up begging . It may or may not calm him down; I had a similarly colored cat who was snipped, but still liked to get out the whoop a$$ on other cats. He had a clever tactic- he would approach them and then go all submissive, laying and stretching in front of them, then when they were at ease he would sneak behind and body slam them .

Re: Stray "talking" cat is bossing my chickens.

I did a quick search for this on the Forum - but didn't find the information I was looking for yet....

Just what should one do when one has a cat visiting their house and is concerned they have been left behind/abandoned? We have a beautiful ginger cat which walks past our ground floor apartment every day (and has done for 2-3years), yet for the past 2 days it has suddently stopped outside and miaowed for food. It has never ever stopped at our apartment before, and usually run a mile if I've ever encountered it when putting the rubbish out.

I don't want the little feline to starve, but we can't take on a cat, so if there is anyone I can call (i.e. Swiss equivalent of RSPCA) then please let me know!

Stu, you are required to report any found animal to the cantonal 'Meldestelle'. You can do so online here:

http://www.tierdatenbank.ch/cms/tier.../gefunden.html

You should check to see if the cat is chipped; your local police station might have a scanner, but call first as not all do. Certainly every vet will have a scanner - bring him in to have him checked. Most vets will take care of informing ANIS if the animal is chipped - but if not, do so yourself (www.anis.ch). You should also inform the animal control office of your Gemeinde, assuming you have one.

If you are unable to take care of the cat you should bring him to a shelter; your Gemeinde can advise you as to which one - if not let us know where you are and we point you towards a few.

If you take him to a shelter, please add that information to the Anmeldung form.

And lastly, it's a good idea to put up posters around the area - the owner is likely looking for the cat.

Good on you for caring - hope this little guy finds his family soon.


ETA:

I see you are in Oerlikon - if the Gemeinde doesn't require you to bring him to a specific Tierheim, I would suggest bringing him here:
