We are worried about Mom,The doctor told her she is suffering from exhaustion and it is causing her RA to flare up,Plus her sores on her arm have not healed either .To top it off Dad hurt his back and lost a lot of work hours so feeding the ferals and kittens have been a big strain on them but mom just can't desert them.She has tried to get the kittens to come close to get them in a trap but they don't fall for it.All she got in there was a coon that she had to let go in the morning.The brown tabby kitten has not been around for over a week so mom fears something happened to it.Dad tries to tell her she can only due what she can do.But mom still can't help but go out of her way for these creatures the world looks the other way too.The amount of food the ferals are going through is incredible especially Lucinda because she has a tape worm but mom can't treat her because she is nursing kittens somewhere.So cross tour paws that Mom at least gets the kittens soon.They are probably at least 10 weeks old now.They need to get to the shelter before they get to feral.

It has not been an easy start of the week for mom.First of all she is having a problem witrh a mother and five baby raccoons hanging around .She hasn't seen Tessa and the kittens the last two nights.She is afraid the coons are keeping them away.Tonight the little gray and white kitten was here by its self.Mom tried to catch it with a trap but no luck it was to scared.Mom is trying not to leave food out so the coons don't hang around but then she's stuck spending hours waiting for the cats to come get fed at all different times.She is looking tired and crabby and Hannah and I feel bad for her because all she wants to do is keep these cats safe and find them homes.She has bad infection in her right arm three large sores that won't heal.The doctor is checking to see if she picked up anything from the ferals.It sure is alot of work caring for cats the rest of society neglects.

Mom is looking for advice.This weekend moms young niece came to spend the weekend.She is a cat lover too.But everytime someone is over Hannah and I run and hide scared completely to death.This weekend I was so scared that I didn't come out of the closet at all.Not even to eat.Mom tried holding me by her niece but we just get more scared.So she thought best not to force people on to us to just let us be and have control to come around on our own.But she is afraid this is so much stress on me.Hannah at least will sneak out to eat but not me.It breaks moms heart to see me so frightened.It's new to her because her cat Harley was a people cat he loved people around.She is trying to think of a way to get us more social with people.She says I am a man with alot of issues.I am so picky with my food mainly only want Friskies indoor dry food I won't eat the special dry foods and I barely eat any can food and she is afraid the dry food will make me heavier.Hannah on the other hand will eat anything that doesn't move and still is quite small.So she keeps experiencing with new foods but I hear her complaining because when I don;t eat it she feels frustrated.What can I say I,m a cat I come with no guarantees just alot of attitude.mol

Hey everyone Mom added a couple pictures of Tessa and her kittens.Mom is in love with all of them.There is a little solid black one like you Zack and he always is giving Mommy this curious look.It is midnight and she is finally going to try to go to bed after a long night of getting them all fed.Being out there in the heat with them is hard on Mom because of her health problems.But she wants to make sure everyone is fed well.Here's hoping to soon find them homes.

 

Tessa's kittens

Oh my gosh.Mom looked out the window and there was Tessa with 5 kittens sitting on the neighbors woodpile.That means with the one mom took to the shelter she had 6 in total for her first litter.That is quite a bit for a first litter.One was identical to the gray and white one mom took in then a black n white one a all black one and two tabbys.Now mom knows why Tessa is so thin trying to keep up nursing that many.Mom is wondering what she can give her to increase her nutrition.Mom sure hopes they come around and start eating here soon so she can try to get them.

 

Momsaw Tessy with two more kittens.

Tonight mom saw Tessa with two more kittens in the other neighbors yard.It was dark so she couldn't see their colors exactly.She will probably wait another week to try and get them.So it's not to much trauma to Tessa.This has sure been exhausting for her.She doesn't know how much longer she can keep going at this pace.Someone is suppose to call her this week from the shelter about the spay program.Thank God she lucked out and got 80 small cans of IAMS at Walmart at ten cents a piece that was being discountinued because these cats are eating more than ever.Especially big growing Elwood.She donated 40 cans to the shelter now she wishes she would of bought more.

 

Mom took the kitty to he shelter today.

Okay Mom and Dad just got back from the humane society from bringing Lindsay it was kinda strange because they missed a turn and when they turned around on a road to turn around the name of the road was Lindsay.I think Dad interrogated them there more than they did them.The woman said they never put kittens down unless they have feline leukemia or some other incurable illness.They thought she was very adoptable because she was so friendly and at the right age about 7 weeks.So here's hoping she gets a good home.Mom misses her already but she can only do what she can do in such a small home and Mom says I take up most the room.mol.Mom has her Id no so she can check on her status.

 

the kitten

Okay so mom found out the kitten may not of been one of Lucys.She had it out in the cage today for fresh air and Tessy (Hunters sister)came around crying and going crazy.So mom assumes it could be one of hers but not sure where the others would be if it was her.Would Tessy act like this if it was Lucys kitten and she just wanted to help.Mom felt bad but she knew she couldn't give the kitten back because it is young enough to be sociable and cuddly.Besides it does eat and drink on it;s own so mom assumes Tessy would set it out on it's own soon anyways.It hurt mom to think Tessy could of been thinking she was hurting her kitten if it was hers.But this weekend it goes to the shelter .Mom is sure it will get adopted because she loves to cuddle and doesn't even seem skiddish.Any advice from my Catster friends on the situation would be appreciated

Some neighbor brought us a kitten he found in a trap by the woods.We believe it to be one of Lucys.Approx 7 to 8 weeks old.She is beautiful gray and white belly paws and chin.Mom and Dad gave her a bath and will keep her till Saturday where they will take her to a shelter.They are certain she will get adopted because she is so friendly,scared but friendly.Let's hope mom comes across the other ones.

 

Mom is so worried about Elmer

Mom is so worried about Elmer the old scottish fold.The last two nights he has been coming and just laying by the front steps not wanting to eat just lay there.Mom thinks he is coming to the end of his life.He looks really really rough.Mom feels she should do the compassionate thing and try to trap him and have him put down but Dad says to leave him.He is king of the grounds here and he wants to die here with dignity.It is their nature to run that cycle.What would others do? Mom is so exhausted.Losing Lucy never finding her kittens and now probably losing Elmer soon.Caring for my outdoor family sures makes mom sad at times.
