Well, our little "porch family" has gained some members! As the Tabbies would say: EEEEEEGGGAAAGGHHHHH!!! Anyway, at last count there was Mama Cat, Aunt Bobbie (don't know whether she's had kittens or not, but we're thinking yes), ANOTHER black feral that looks almost EXACTLY like Aunt Bobbie, 3 black kittens that are apparently an older litter of Aunt Bobbie's (they all still try to nurse on her), and then Mama C.'s 4 kittens: the two greys and the solid black and the black with blaze. Most of the kittens appear to be between 2 and 3 mos. Of the Papa Cat (who we named Shadow in our stories) there has been no sign since the spaying. Good luck, Father, where ever you are!
They all had eye discharge, and the Mama did catch the lighter grey a couple of times and put medicine in her eyes. Still very skittish, though, and no one else will allow themselves to be touched. Happily, they all seem to be healing anyway. Looking much better this morning. Will also add that we know they are getting fed both at our house and at our neighbors, though they appear to like it pretty well over here these days - too well! :)
Oh, and Sleeper is posting her scary story today starring the ferals and Novi, Snow and Griswold. Check it out!
Happy Halloween, everyfur!
Sounds like your porch is "the place to be"! Glad you have neighbors that help care for them too. We have miserable neighbors that don't like ferals.
OMC, you wrote a book about me??

That's so nice of your Mamma to care for the ferals.
We have some people in our neighborhood that put out food for our feral colony too. (We have so many in the neighborhood that DOT put up Cat X-ing signs at the street intersections--not kidding.)
Concats on your DDP honor, sweetie!
