Notes From Faraway Inn

A fun, light read book based on a compilation of 14 years of experiences of guests that have stayed at Faraway Inn Cedar Key Florida.

Oliver and I are forever grateful to Miss Teri Mathis for compiling “Notes From Faraway Inn”. September 2 at 2:30 am hurricane Hermine hit Faraway Inn at full force and we lost many of our room journals to the Gulf of Mexico. Because of Teri’s efforts we are fortunate to have this awesome 169 page compilation of thoughts and feelings.

Are you feeding outdoor cats? You’ve also got to fix them.

Providing food, water and shelter for outdoor cats is important, but it’s also equally important to make sure all of the cats in the group or colony are spayed and neutered. Cats can have two to three litters per year of five to six kittens each. And then those kittens can become pregnant at about six months of age…and so the cycle continues. Spaying and neutering the cats will not only stop the breeding cycle, but it will also eliminate problematic behaviors such as howling, fighting and spraying.

What is Trap Neuter Return (TNR)?

Trap-neuter-return (TNR) is a program through which free-roaming cats (not belonging to particular humans) are humanely trapped; sterilized and medically treated; and returned to the outdoor locations where they were found. If those locations are deemed unsafe or otherwise inappropriate, feral cats (unsocialized to humans) are relocated to farmyard homes. Kittens still young enough to be socialized and friendly adult cats are typically placed in foster care for eventual adoption into homes as companion animals rather than returned to the outdoors. Cats found suffering with terminal or untreatable illnesses or injuries are humanely euthanized.

What does it mean when a cat’s ear is clipped?

Ear-tipping is the universal sign of an altered feral cat. While the cat is sedated for spay or neuter surgery, a quarter of an inch is removed from the tip of the ear in a straight line cut. The procedure is swift and painless and healing is rapid.
