  • Steve, i understand about the abondoned kittens here. we found one outside our house several months back and now she is expecting kittens ! hope we will be able to find homes for them. we expect them around thanksgiving time. We were at church last wednesday and there was this cute little yellow tabby kitten. it was cold wet and hungry. it came to us so we took it in and we are looking for a home for it ! people if you don't want kittens then get your cats fixed ! that goes for males as well as females because someone that has a female may not want you male cat comming around and creating more kittens. it is every cat owners responsibility not just the ones that own the female cats !

  • We may have one spoken for tonight if I can catch the little bugger. I can touch the others now, but he (I think) seems to know we are looking at him.

    I hate to split the family up, but it is going to happen anyway.

  • One calico has been adopted by a good home.

  • Poor babies, I will be praying they go to good forever homes.

    I just don't understand people. Thanks steve for being such a good man and helping these little ones out.

  • I was able to pet the Momma this morning and she has blue eyes, so I would bet she is part Siamese.

    I gave them a large plastic container with some sheets inside for warmth and wrapped in black plastic to hold heat in last night. Since they were all out waiting for their food this morning, I can't be sure they used it, but it is there, just in case.

    Except for fleas and ticks, they could stay there for ever. Luckily the cold weather will slow the biting insects down but I am concerned about the road right next to them and eventually predators.

    Now that the sun has come out. We will try to get some pictures.

  • Steve, she might be part Himalayan. They have a tendency to have blue eyes as do Persians. so somewhere in the mix is a very nice breed of cat. I just ended up with a new drop off myself. We believe it is a Manx since it is tailless. She is a doll and fits in with us old folks (i have a 17 year old poodle and a lazy old mix breed dog, along with an old lady cat) that is not as tickled with all her enthusiasm as the rest of us. However, she is doing well and I wish we could help you out. If i hear of someone wanting a kitty I will know where to go. Thanks for being such a nice man.

  • Somewhere along the way, I picked up a love and appreciation for all life. I'm not crazy about termites near the house, nor ticks and fleas but if they are not in my living space, I leave them alone as well.

    Our older cats also take time to warm up to the exuberance of youth. Our stray lap dog Sophie has picked up the nickname "grumpy" because of her fussing when one particular young cat come near. Sam has slowly become closer with other cats, but he took to Sophie right from the start.

    Even though she grumbles, Sam just lays up against her and snuggles, as if he knows she has a kind heart. She used to move, but when she realized she would lose her favorite spot, she just sucked it up and accepted Sam.

    I will start another post to keep their pictures out there.
