If it was neutered, it didn't move on, unless it's to that big cat heaven in the sky. lol

hmmm feral hasn't been back in ages so perhaps he's moved on. Phewwww

He's gotta go, and soon.

Just because a cat is feral doesn't make them vicious, but some are. I'm dealing with one right now. It's come after me 3 times, and is always after the other cats that come up. Angry

Wowza; 100 k? That makes it pretty hard for most people. I guess people drop their parents off and then disappear. lol Too bad about the wild cat, but I understand.

hard part was bringing my cat with me. She got beaten up by a feral, twice $1200 in vet bills. Trapped the lil sucker and took him to the pound. He was the neighbors cat but they had let him go feral,

that would mean selling the house to get into care scenario. I only wrk 3 days a week so I can be around the house.

12-09-2014 08:25
shes still pretty good at getting around and eating. Would only look at a home if she becomes vilolent. We have to have huge security bonds to pay nursing homes here $100 k

Sad Sorry to that Kat. That's tough, but doesn't that make you an even better daughter? Most would be calling the old folks home for a reservation. You're a peach. Hang in there.

Bubble Disease

Bubble Disease

Buy the Book

Goldfish affected by supersaturated gases might show symptoms such as uncontrolled swimming; gasping at surface; bulging eye, known as pop eye, bubbles escaping from mouth or gills; raised areas that look like tumors, which are actually air pockets or bubbles under the skin

  • Supersaturated Gases

Tap water often comes out of the faucet saturated with gases, which are actually concentrated levels of oxygen that goldfish cannot tolerate. They can literally suffocate from these extreme amounts of oxygen. You might have noticed the minuscule bubbles in a freshly filled water glass. As an experiment, fill one glass with tap water from a faucet turned on full blast. Fill another glass with tap water with the faucet turned on at a slow stream; and you'll see the difference. Now, take the glass filled with the bubbles and using a whisk; stir it briskly for several moments. You'll see that the bubbles have dissipated.

Check the glass walls of your aquarium for these tiny bubbles; when visual, supersaturated gases are present and may be injuring your fish.

If your faucet has extreme amounts of gases, try removing the cap from the end of the faucet; these caps which contain a screen increase pressure which increase the amount of supersaturated gases in the tap water.

The goldfish in the photo below has an air pocket at the base of the dorsal fin; looking much like a tumor.
Goldfish with bubble disease

To eliminate supersaturated gases in tap water; work fresh water over by pouring it a few times. Hold the container high over the fresh water tub; let it hit hard; this breaks up the gases.

Increase the surface action in your tank, aquarium or pond by adding a pond pump. The action of the pump; pulls the water along with the gases into the intake valve shooting a powerful jet of water to the top of the tank where the gas is released; making the water safe for goldfish.

Is your goldfish getting enough action?

Open the top of your aquarium so the surface of the water is exposed to fresh air.

If after increasing your surface action and eliminating the supersaturated gases in your tank water; your goldfish shows signs of distress; it may benefit from a salt bath. Salt Bath
