Cop Rescues Kitten


Police officer comes across unlikely partner...

28 Year old South Carolina police officer Cody Garrett, had a not so routine patrol when he heard cries coming from a dumpster. The officer began investigating where he found his soon to be companion, a stray kitten.

Garrett retrieved the stray kitty and brought it back to the station, but no one knew what to do with the poor feline. Garrett who had recently adopted a cat named Toothless, took matters into his own hands and adopted the feline too, naming it Squirt.

The cop nursed the kitten to better health and one Squirt was larger, it became his second in command!

Their inspirational story went viral around social media, paired with a photo of newly adopted, Squirt, sitting on his shoulder.

This wasn’t the first time Garrett had done his part in animal rescue either, he also saved Toothless, and her abandoned puppies, and aided a blind dachshund to a local shelter.

What a legend!

How do I toilet train my cat

I rescued an adult female, desexed cat six months ago. Apparently she’s always been an outside cat. I have another cat who is mostly indoors and I would only let outside during the day if I was home. Luna didn’t like being indoors and wasn’t using the litter tray properly. I had her confined in the bathroom for a few days to get use to it and she would go next to it, rarely in it. She will sometimes use a tray otherwise will urinate or poop on the floor. I am at wits end. I have two trays, I’ve changed the type of litter, put dirt in the tray, picked up the poop and put it in the tray to show her that where it goes. I’ve used spray in the tray to attract her to want to use the tray. I bought felliway diffuser which is meant to calm cats and have also used the rescue remedy drops in her food. I’ve recently moved house where there is a cat enclosure so she can go in and out when ever she pleases but still goes in the kitchen (as I now close the bathroom door when she started going to the toilet in there), but tonight I noticed she’s been going in the spare room if anything is left on the floor which is carpeted. So I’ve now cleared that whole room to prevent her from going to the toilet. She is still going in the kitchen. I’ve tried cleaning the area and eliminating her scent by using water and vinegar then once dry use bi carb soda and hydrogen peroxide and it has made no difference. She’s been tested for a bladder infection which came up negative. I love animals. I have another cat which she now gets along with and two dogs which she is still getting use to. I don’t know what else to do and I don’t want to give her up but feel like I will have no choice.
