    Scotty,

    Moving is definately an option and a must, just not something that i can do soon enough. I believe at most that i have 2 weeks or so to come up with something to do, or I may never know what has happened to them.


    Rattler,

    That's not a bad idea in the least, i'll have to see if i can find some fencing or coop material that wouldn't shred up muzzles and paws as i'm sure the kitties would try to either climb the sides, or push their faces through the holes. Anything though is really a lot better than being stranded out in the cold. With a roll of chicken wire or something similar and the lumber i could probably put that together in 20 minutes or so and definately make enough room for them to be at least somewhat comfortable for the cost. Luckily they have been kept in smaller rooms most of their lives so they are used to being confined somewhat and don't seem to mind it much as long as i am near.

    White pages is scary scot.....

    Anywho, thats terrible Vertigo! I hate to hear stories like this. I'd vote for the idea suggested of making a "cat coop" Just fence them in and they'll be golden! I'm sure things will be ok...difficult but ok. BTW< when do you want your Nepenthes cutting from the auction a looong while back? I though it never made it to you...or it did and died....let me know spring is coming!

    Listen to Rattler,
    I did the same for my 6+' iguana at the time. It is pretty cheap and you can go with PVC or 2x4 and chicken wire or aluminum screen (no nylon). Quick, cheap, easy to do yourself. Hope you have a solution quickly.

    Take care

    Building a "coop" really does seem like the best bet at the moment. At least they'll be able to get everything they really need. Now all i have to do is get past all of the bull from my father explaining to me that he isn't into cats. Doesn't he realize this has nothing to do with him in the least? He went over to the house with my cats to try and retrieve an inanimate object, basically telling me he cares more about a bass guitar i have over there than any living breathing creature, even if i do think of them as my children. People really are warped.

    A well constructed "coop" can be a good partial residence too for them as they do enjoy having their own things. After life on a couch they can be a little irritated to be elsewhere though. I would say expect a bit of vengence from the for a little while after their coop change.

    Good Luck

    Well you could sneak the cats in the house. thats what I would do. Just try to make sure no one finds out. Or throw away all the crap in the garage. ITs not like anyone will use it anyway.

    I'm so sorry to hear that Vertigo! I wish i could help.. if I wasn't all the way up in Alaska I'd offer to watch them for as long as needed. My BF has been looking for excuses to get another kitty anyway.

    I like cats.

    You really can't find any enclosures for reasonable prices?? Look in pet shops or Petsmart or places like that for large dog kennels.. even in newspaper adds sometimes. We sold a big dog kennel through the newspaper. They shouldn't be very expensive, and they're big enough, for, like, a lab, so it should be OK for cats.
