Arrival Story:
NOTE!! I did NOT go looking for a Kitty who looked like Patches, she found ME~~ Smudge is a semi~feral Kitty, who was dumped-off at the trailer park, where my sister and I live. about three months ago, she had a litter of 5 kittens, under my sister's storage shed, and sister's boyfriend's dog, unfortunately, killed two of the kittens, before they could stop her. The other 3 were adopted & fostered, along with Smudge, and then she was tossed-out, to fend for herself, again. She immediately, of course, became an "Unwed Teen Mother" for the second time. She had the litter, about a week ago, and "Uno" was the only survivor. (WRONG!!) We thought there may have been two more kittens, but this was the only one she moved to a "safe" place, and I was able to easily access its location, and rescue it. Then, another neighbor and I caught Smudge, and placed her with her baby, and both are happy, now. UPDATE!!!! The neighborhood kids found 5 more of her kittens, under an old chair, across the street! Now she has all 6 babies! Talk about an "Instant" family! I now have 11 cats, all of a sudden!

Update, Better pix now!! She is happy in her beddy~box! MOL! Now I need to add the picture of all six babies! This is all too funny~ and wonderful, that they all survived, for over 24 hrs with no Mommy. One of the kittens had actually crawled almost out to the street! at only one week of age! They are all very hungry!

My Great Adventure!!

Momma KNOWS that I know my way aroound this area, since I was living as a feral kitty here, long before she moved in to the neighborhood!
Well, this morning, while she was feeding the local feral population, I waited by the door for my "big chance", and when she opened it, I dashed outside and away!!! Momma was not even looking, and if she had not heard the bell on my collar, would not have even known I had escaped.
Since Momma only had on a long tee-shirt, she ran back inside and got some shorts on, but by then, I had gotten under the trailer next door!
Big Red, the huge handsome orange Tomcat, who courted me back a few years ago (and sired two of the kittens in my last litter) was under there, also, waiting for his chance to get at the food that Momma had put out. I said "Hello", then did my best "wiggle dance", by rolling in the dirt, in front of him. I wanted him to think I was still "beautiful" MOL!
Then I jumped up onto the roof of another trailer, and ran all over it, while Momma took a spoon, and clacked it on an empty cat food can. (MOL! She had just fed us, so this time, that trick did not work for me!!!)
Then I jumped back down, and Momma almost got her hands on my fuzzy tail, but once again, I ran under some low-hanging branches, where she could not reach me.
The big Tamarisk tree was calling my name, and I really wanted to climb up and see the world, from a high place. (Momma would have left me there, until I decided to come down, in that case!)
But I got careless, and started rolling in the dirt again, and she grabbed me and carried me back inside!
I was thirsty by then; we live on the desert, and even though it was early morning, and relatively cool outside, water is very "necessary" to survival. Momma keeps a bowl of water outside for the feral kitties...sometimes the raccoon gets into the cat food, and tries to "wash" it in the bowl...
Well, I came to Momma's bedroom, and laid down with her and took a three-hour nap...
PS, Momma said she would take me outside on the leash, after the two Bengal kitties leave here, maybe tomorrow morning...


What is happening, here???

Last night, Momma sneaked two cat carriers into the bathroom, and she did not even make me go in there, during the night time, and I could smell the two kitties in there...
Seems Momma "rescued" two Purebred Bengal Cats, from going to the pound. Someone had abandoned them at an apartment, when they moved out...
They talk a lot, and from what I can see, they have spotted fur...
Yeah, I got to stay outta the bathroom all night, I thought Momma must have gone crazy or something??? (it is the only room here, with a "door")
Hopefully, I won't have to go in there at night, any more...I just have to be a good girl, and not chase Junior, or fight with him...Oh, by the way, MOL, he is back in the bedroom closet, today...Tee-Hee!!


Birthday Thank-You's

Hello, today was my "appointed" Birthday, since Momma Carol did not know "exactly" when I was born...(I was a semi-feral "Teen-Aged Mother x 3") so she gave me the date one month "before" the date my kittens from my "final" litter were born.
But the vet told Momma that I appeared to be around three years old, when she took me in to be spayed, last year. (April 19, 2010)
Momma knew that I had definitely had two litters, as her sister has a kitten from the previous litter. Her name is Hannah Sioux, and she is black & white, similar to Uno, only with longer fur...
Apparently, this "Daddy" Tomcat "gets around" (MOL!) as a pretty tabby Mommy-kitten that Momma feeds sometimes, has also had a b/w kitten by this Tom, who looks very much like Hannah, right down to the funny "mustache"!! She is somewhere here on Catster, also, one can look her up by her name, as we are not sure of her ID number...
Anyway, Momma has been really nice to me all day, although she has not let me go outside (MOL, I snuck out the door again, yesterday, for just a few moments...;-) )
Each time I ask for Snacky-Treats, she gives me some!!
I have been trying to be extra nice, so maybe she won't put me in the bathroom, tonight...(I doubt that, but at least I can "try", MOL!!)
Anyway, I am "rambling", and I am going to go back out to the cat-tree, and hang around. Momma isn't going to bed for a while, yet...
Purrs, and Thank you for all the Rosettes!
