BARN CATS!

We currently have lots of feral and semi-feral cats looking for jobs as barn cats! All these cats have been neutered, vaccinated (rabies & FVRPC) and ear-tipped. They are ready to move into your barn, garage, garden shed. workshop, or other shelter. 

In exchange for food, fresh water, and shelter from weather and predators, these cats will provide you with fast, efficient, rodent control. 


To learn more about these cats and how to provide a good new home for them, call us at 775 423-8650 or email us at  fawgnv@gmail.com 


RIP Buster Brown

Buster Brown came to us in June. He was old, ill, missing an eye, with one ear badly damaged, in desperate need of dental work, and with his fur in terrible condition. We were told that years ago he had had a family. But then his family moved and left him behind. For a few years neighbors provided food and water and a porch for him to sleep on. One day the mail carrier on his street saw Buster Brown's food bowl sitting, empty, on top of the family's garbage can. She asked the people what happened to the cat she was so used to seeing on their porch. They explained they no longer wanted to care for him as he was old and sick and so had stopped feeding him in the hope that he would go away.  The mail carrier found him a few days later wandering down the street, scooped him up and brought him to us.



When we took Buster Brown to the vet he tested positive for FIV -- the feline version of HIV. This virus weakens the cat's immune system making him more susceptible to disease. Cornell Vet School says in the US between 1.5% and 3% of cats test positive for FIV. It is found more commonly among unaltered males who, in fighting with each other for territory, spread the virus  through deep bite wounds. We had Buster Brown neutered and vaccinated and he lived happily and peacefully with several other cats in a foster home. He was a true gentleman and there was no danger of him biting any of his feline roommates.

Because his FIV status and his age made adoption more difficult, we submitted an application for him to go to Best Friends Animal Society's sanctuary in Kanab, UT.  He was accepted and placed on the wait list for FIV-positive cats. We looked forward to the day we would take him to the sanctuary to live out his senior years in comfort and safety surrounded by Best Friends caregivers and volunteers.

Unfortunately, Buster Brown developed a cancer in his mouth and his health deteriorated quite rapidly. With heavy hearts his doctor and foster mom helped him go to the Rainbow Bridge.  RIP, Buster Brown. We are very glad we got to know you and are only sorry your stay with us was so short.

Rose has moved to Utah

Rose, our lovely calico girl with cerebellar hypoplasia, was accepted into Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and has made the move to Utah.

Cerebellar hypolpasia (CH) is a disorder of the cerebellum part of the brain making it difficult for Rose to walk, or eat and drink unassisted, or use a litter pan.  CH can be caused by various types of trauma, but is most often the result of unvaccinated pregnant cats being exposed to panleukopenia ("cat distemper"). Any kittens who survive, and most do not, can exhibit varying degrees of CH.

Best Friends has years of experience providing quality lives to animals like Rose who come to them with a variety of physical and/or behavioral issues. Rose will receive the best care possible while there. The best news? Her caregivers at Best Friends are confident they will be able to place her in a loving adoptive home.
