Maryland cat rescue

Maryland cat rescue
is fairly active it seems -well done Maryland people.

Important - A lot of the Maryland cat rescue centers (the majority) can be found through Petfinder which operates nationwide. Petfinder provides the listing software so the adoptable cats are listed on the Petfinder website. You can go to their website and search from there. Some of the rescue operations are not affiliated to Petfinder (it seems to me) and these are listed here:

Alley Cat Rescue - A really nice website - concern and thought radiates from it. A nice Maryland cat rescue organization. This site has been written by a really nice woman in my estimation. I am not sure how they operate but their website tells us all about what they do. I am guessing but they are probably a network of volunteers so their is no central facility (if I am wrong please leave a comment). They do run an adoption program at the local PetsMart. There are 10 PetsMarts in the area! The nearest to the ACR postal address is this one (Google Maps opens). ACR details:

Alley Cat Rescue, Inc.
P O Box 585
Mount Rainier MD 20712
Phone: 301-277-5595

The Partnership for Animal Welfare - {PAW} - There postal address is:

The Partnership for Animal Welfare, Inc.
P.O. Box 1074
Greenbelt, MD 20768

This is not too far (about 10 k) from ACR above. PetsMart also host their adoption shows. There are a lot of PetsMart stores and these host the adoption shows:
Rockville, Bowie, Silver Spring, Kentlands, and Columbia. Petco also host: Beltsville and Ellicott City.

Alley Animals - based in
Baltimore, Maryland. They need part-time help! Call Alice at 410-823-0899.

Animal Rescue Inc. - this is an operation that has facilities of its own and is a relatively large organization it seems - they employ people so there must be reasonable good funding coming in. They are located in two places, Putty Hill, Baltimore (link to Google map) - this is a cattery and just off route 83 near the MD PA border.

Cat Rescue of Maryland (CROM) - This looks like a small operation but valuable nonetheless. They have a postal address but it seems no dedicated premises.

Maryland cat rescue more organizations:

Howard County Cat Club - they advertise their adoptable cats through a portal website (I guess for greater visibility)

Lucky Cat Rescue - Based in baltimore - MD - they work with Petco at Tollgate Shopping Center, 615 Belair Road, Bel Air, MD 21014 and at Golden Ring Plaza, 8640 Pulaski Hwy, Rosedale, MD 21237. (the links open to Google maps).

Rude ranch Animal Rescue Center - they have their own facilities and are located at Annapolis. This looks a well established center.

Safe at Last - run by Bonnie Jo Yuspa - from what appears to be her home (well done and brave you). They are in demand but please make arrangements by appointment only. The address:

Safe At Last, Inc.
4303 Danlou Drive
Baltimore, Maryland 21207

That's the list of Maryland cat rescue operations not affiliated to Petfinder.

Cat Ear Mites

Brown gunge. Yes, I know this is a ferret! It does show the build up of dark brown to black ear wax caused by the presence of the cat ear mites in the outer ear canal. This parasite is not restricted to the domestic cat, which makes this photo valid and a useful illustration (I was unable to find a suitable photo of a cat with the condition). Photo Stacy Lynn Baum under a creative commons license. Ear mites (minute crab like creatures) are one of the causes of inflammation of the outer ear canal (scientific term for this inflammation is Otitis externa ). The outer ear canal is the tube that runs from outside to the ear drum (the pathway for the reception of sound), which can be seen when looking at the ear. Otitis externa affects humans and often swimmers as it is called "swimmer's ear" in humans. This YouTube video show ear mites under a microscope. They are not actually in the ear in this video. There are many possible causes of Otitis externa in c

Feline Mange

I'll write about three types of feline mange (a) feline scabies or head mange (b) demodectic mange and (c) sarcoptic mange. The source material is from Cat Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook - the best on the market . Generalised feline mange? Puerto Rico - Photo by Gotham City Lost And Found Feline Scabies - head mange Head mange or feline scabies, is a fairly rare condition in cats, which is caused by the Notoedres mite (head mite) that only reproduces on cats. The female mites burrow a few millimeters (that is a lot) into the skin around the head, and neck to lay eggs, which hatch and lay their own eggs. Their presence and activities causes intense itching that in turn causes the cat to scratch. The scratching will obviously be noticed and it will cause the skin to become red, scratched and worse infected. Symptoms: hair loss and scabs, thick wrinkled skin and grey/yellow crusts form plus the symptoms of scratching. Feline mange (head mange) is contagious and tr

Cat Anatomy

Cat Anatomy - Photo by Curious Expeditions . The picture above was taken at Wax Anatomical Models at La Specola in Florence, Italy. The photograph is published under a creative commons license kindly granted by the photographer. I am sorry if it is a bit gruesome. It is pretty well all I could find as an illustration that was licensed for publication. Cat Anatomy is a very wide ranging subject. The anatomy of a cat is very similar to human anatomy. If you were writing a biology book for students of biology you would go through every part of the a cat's anatomy in some detail. It would be similar to writing a book about the human anatomy. It would be a thick book and pretty boring for your average internet surfer. So, how do you limit such a big subject and make this post meaningful? The answer I think lies in doing two things: Having a quick general look at cat anatomy - an overview and; Focusing on the areas of cat anatomy that are particular to the cat and of parti
