  • Bobby and Bonny seem to have recovered for their visit to the vet. Since I am the one who put them in the carrier our relationship us not back to normal yet but experience says it will before too long.

    Mike and Molly are climbing my legs as I write this. It is too hit for long pants but this would be a good time to have them on. :-)

  • And what (or who) do i find on our garage floor last night? A black kitten with his umbilical chord wrapped around carpet fiber.

    I don't know if the mother abandoned it or was in the process of moving it when I came in. We clipped the chord and I held it in my hands until it warmed up and quieted down.

    Eventually I placed it back on some fabric on the floor and waited to see if Mom would come back. After about 10 minutes I heard some "motherly" sounds coming from a box and found her sill giving birth. I guess that is wy she did not come back.

    I gently placed the kitten at the front of the box Mom was in and left. An hour later I came back and she had them nursing and "BB" was safe and warm.

    Not sure where the mother came from or if it was one of our "feral" family of cats, but she is here now and kind of like an illegal situation we have with immigration, once they are here, we will take care of them.

    Of course, if anyone wants to adopt....????

  • I just changed the photo. The Grey/black one is CT (Crooked Tail). He adopted the other orange kittens when they first came in and has done the same for the newest ones, Mike & Molly. This is Molly snuggling in on the left.
