Integrating an ailurophobic cat

Integrating a cat that is an ailurophobic cat with two other cats isn't easy, quick or very much fun.  Slowly but surely we're at it again; letting out all three cats out to wander, see each other, hiss and growl for several hours a day.  We're trying positive reinforcement with a renewed vigor.  That means that when the cats are around each other we're showering them with attention and brushing.  Hopefully they'll catch on that good things happen when they're around each other.  As Martha would say, "It's a good thing."

Today is National Feral Cat Day and unfortunately nothing is happening to commemorate this day in Nevada.  What a shame because we have our share of feral cats in Las Vegas.  If you keep up with the Best Friends' Focus on Felines campaign you've heard about the colonies living in one of the local casino parking garages.  Kudos to that casino for doing the right thing.  Want to find out if something is happening in your neck of the woods, then go to National Feral Cat Day

However there are several events coming up in the next month that will help raise money for our local non-profits and rescues.  Here is the next one.
24 Oct - C.A.T.S. & FLOCK yard & bake sale - 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 5131 Kell Lane in Las Vegas
              C.A.T.S. is the only pet food bank in Las Vegas.
              FLOCK helps put cats and kittens in loving homes.
