When we built our equestrian center near Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, we weren’t aware that it would become a beacon for abandoned kitties and lonely tomcats. Although we have found homes for a few over the years, more often then not, after having them properly vetted and neutered, we can’t seem to part with them. We figured it was about time these freeloader felines started earning their keep…and so the idea for LitterBoxTalk.com was born.
Come back soon to be introduced to our team of crack cat product testers!
Shadow arrived at our farm in the summer of 2019 as an unneutered adult male cat. His back had been shaved and he was a little thin. He is now a fully fluffy kitty who chooses to spend his time equally between our house and barn. He loves going for group walks. His favourite toy: capnip balls!
Say hello to Mr. Handsome Harry Houdini Cat! Harry decided he wanted to live with us the fall of 2018. He was quite scrappy in his early days, even after being neutered, so it took a while for our other cats to accept him, but now he is a cuddly and playful guy! His favourite toy: Cat Dice.
The elegant Casper wasn’t always so elegant. When he showed up in the summer of 2019, he was a mess with scabs and scaring all over his back, face, and front legs. He was itchy and scared and took a while to warm up to us . After having him vaccinated, neutered and treated for a upper respiratory infection, we focused on treating his skin issues. He vastly improved with parasite and flea treatment, but needed a variety of ear drops to address the infection and inflammation in his ears. Unfortunately some of the scaring is permanent. He is currently in the care of a dermatologist to hopefully keep his skin issues at bay. Casper’s favourite toy: Triangle Man…a felt triangle with legs.
This is Rolo. He was a our first Feral kitty. We caught him in 2009 after he fell in love with our dog. Rolo is super cuddly, but likes to stare at the other cats and howl. No idea why. Rolo is unfortunately unable to jump, and has to pull himself onto the bed or sofa.
Kitten D Mitten was actually rescued by our (former) neighbour, but when she saw our giant indoor litter box (riding arena), she moved in and never left. She has no interest in being a house cat, so she lives in our barn. Unfortunately she has allergies to mosquitoes and often has scabs on our face. She is also a tad large after a round of steroids for her allergies. A very sweet cat though. Her favourite toy is a little fuzzy toy that she loves to lick.
