Pretty sure BW is a boy. The light makes him look multi-colored, but he is black & white.
I am not sure why I never knew this but I have found a way to pet the young cats while they eat. They almost always face toward me, so they can keep an eye on me while they eat, but if I can avoid a frontal approach, they allow me to pet their backs with little concern.
I believe I can get just about any of them now, but I need a place to relocate them before I put them through that trauma. I realize I am tugging and all pet lover's hearts and don't meant to cause any guilt. After all, I am going through the same emotions, since I have the best opportunity to adopt, but where do we stop?
However, if you have room, and would like to adopt one, I would live to help you with your search. Sooner or later, Debbi and I are not going to be able to deliver their twice daily feeding and they may disperse to find food and their destiny. We would just like to have their destiny turn out positive, warm and loving.
