I am worried once H5N1 hits the US what my plans will be with my three cats.  My two older cats don't really care about going out but my younger cats darts out the door every given chance.

my dad has a cat, a pretty black and white named kitti and she hunts birds all the time
I look at the stars and wonder what it would be like to touch them.

My cat "Grace" loves to hung birds and then plants them on our doorstep.  She climbs the haybales in our barn to get to the top and then pounces on the birds.

-We have 3 cats -- and may inherit two more. I still have to find the $ to stock up on cat supplies. Especially for the prescription food one of them eats! They are all indoor cats.

Corn -- I think you need to go to the Tiki Bar and buy Fla_Medic a drink...

I have 9 cats and 3 dogs. They are family. We are all in this together. They stay regardless of any official advice to the contrary. I have stocked up on their food and they will quarantine in the house with me.

To all those people who are thinking of getting rid of their pets, i have only one question to ask

would you get rid of your children if you thought they may get the BF?

IMO there is no difference between any form of life. Even Jesus said 'Whatsoever you do for another you do for me' or very close to that.  He did not say only humans. he meant everything

I have four cats. They are reluctantly becoming indoor only animals.
For generations we have lived not wisely but too well. Now we must pay.

We have two cats, they are mostly DH cats, the two dogs are mostly mine.  The cats don't usually show much interest in going outside.  they will stand at the Garage door and look out. that is about it.

I have two babies, well the one you can see in my avatar is Coco(fixed) is 3 in Sept, and we  also  have a 1 year, male (fixed) who is also Siamese.  I've had Siamese all my life and wouldn't live without one.

His birthday was last weekend and my daughter and son-in-law, and Baby Granddaughter were here for part of the week.  So they decided to buy dessert one nite.  They had Safe way put Happy Birthday Sully on it as a joke, well when they went to pay her she asked if Sully was a little boy, kids laughed and said Yes.

So on his birthday we have a picture of him in my husband's arms, blowing out a candle.   I forgot mine don't go outside except on leash.

We also have an African Grey Parrot and a miniature Pincher

I have one cat, and she's mainly indoors during the winter, so she's used to staying in right now.  She likes to go out with us to do the gardening though, so spring and summer could be a problem.  She's just going to have to stay in all the time when bird flu gets here.  There is no other way to keep her.

We have one cat and 4 dogs-they are all outdoors during the day and indoors during rainy/cold weather or at night. sleep on our couch,, chairs and bed. the dogs are getting a kennel built, or else I would just walk dogs all day when it hits here-the cat will have to be retrained. She cries now by the door to get outin the morning, but she'll have to readjust -justlike the rest of the family.

worrywart, good for you,  she'll probably test your Patience before this is all over.  Your doing the right thing. 

Do you know that the average outdoor cat age is 7 years, whereas the average indoor cat is 18, we have had two Siamese that lived 21 & 22 years old.

Cars, dogs, people, and now they have to fear birds too, world is upside down. IMO

Reading this makes me glad that my pup will only be about 20 lbs when she is full grown...I have a cat that size(the Ole cat)...lol....

The ole cat loves to go outside...but I have a screened in back deck she may have to learn to live with just that..and she would have to share with the pup...our kitten has only gone as far as the patio door to the back deck..so i think she would be ok with quarantine....
