Arrival Story:
There was this mom-lady that gave us food everyday. She talked to us, and tried to pet a few of us. For some reason, I felt so drawn to her, so I would let her really pet me & it felt good! I started to get goopy eyes & nosie. Uh oh - are you sick little man? Then she noticed that I seemed really thin & would run to the food dish, but then stare at it hanging my head - not eating. I kept shaking my head. I could not smell or breathe so I could not eat. She could feel my spine & hip bones. Every day she would spoon feed me & try to get me to eat, but I had a hard time, and would have these shaking fits where I couldn't catch my breath. The day she tried to feed me baby food with an eye dropper, I was choking. She set me down & then I kept sneezing. Well when she went to wipe my nosie, there was this green thing sticking out. She gently pulled, and out came a long piece of grass from my nosie & sinus! Boy that felt better. I was able to eat a little more, but still not much. Each day I was getting worse, and then she told the dad- man "if I don't do something, he is gonna die" so he gave the ok, and I was asked onto the screenporch - I went to the vet in the morning & she found I had pneumonia & only weighed 2.5 lbs for a 3 month old. Lots of meds, lots of tasty foods, a warm lap and lots of love from mom & I am almost all better!

I was born in the woodpile of the backyard. Not a bad life - we got fed everyday, and played in the yard. But life is so much better now. I am never hungry for more than a minute. I feel good. I feel loved. I can become the kitty I was meant to be. Felix was born with no hip sockets, and luxating patellas on both knees. He has had surgery to fix one, but may still need the other done, and possibly the femur heads cut off on his hips. He is such a sweet boy through it all. update: I am growing like a weed & getting more confident.

a little black cat says...

Halloween cat! & bird TV

October 8th 2015 3:14 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

It's been a while, so Momma said I could update. We do keep coming here, but boy it is fruuuuuustrating. Big POTP for our pals Zeke & his sister Xena. I have been doing good. I will always have issues with my legs, but the medicine I take helps, and I get stonger ones (buprione) when my legs hurt real bad - when it is very damp out. But not very often. Momma took the little rug out that has a black cat on it, and no sooner did she put it down, I was on it! Maybe she will leave it out for me all the time even though it is a Halloween rug with a pumpkin & black kitty on it. Things are winding down for fall - cleaning up the garden, harvesting the last of the tomatoes. Momma is making apple butter this weekend. SO let me tell you about bird TV! Momma has a suet feeder, and a big cage feeder that fits a very large seed block. Well the STUPID squirrels, and yes I said stupid squirrels. (Momma is NOT a fan of them, wouldn't hurt them, but wants them to go far far away) kept pulling the block feeder down. So in trying to figure out somewhere to put it, she landed on an excellent idea as far as us kits are concerned. Our kitchen has 4 windows, 2 on each wall. The 2 that are on the driveway side, have a roll down awning that has a lip. She hooked the bird cake cage on the awning. Squirrels cannot get to it, the seed shells fall on the driveway, so easy to clean up, and the birds are eating literally about 2 feet from the window. Tigger likes to sit on the window ledge, but Momma turns the kitchen chair right by the wall there, and I sit on the chair which is just a bit lower than the window ledge, and watch bird TV like ALL day. We have many downy woodpeckers that like the cake, and nuthatches along with the regular ol birds, so Momma likes that she can sit at the table with her morning coffee and look right at the birdies, and hear them chattering and pecking the seeds. It's a win,win,win situation! She is thinking of hanging a couple feeders there now. Yay! love all the bird TV channels!
Purrs for Zeke, and for Xena & Mia too. purrs, the Feefster


help the black kitties!

I am also posting this through Tigger's page, cause I don't have quite as many pals, but sending out a plea to help a whole bunch of black kitties in trouble!

A vacated hoarder's home in the Chicago area was found to have close to 100 kitties in it - looks like most of them are black or tuxies. We all know it is so much harder for black kitties. (I have a special spot in my heart for a little black cat) Tree House Humane Society, Paws Chicago & Chicago Animal Control have been trapping the kitties, as they are boarding up the house today. Now they say they will not board it up until they are positive that there are no kits inside. Tree House has about 70 of the kits, but they are looking for foster help, adoption help, and surely monetary help.
Tree House is a very good place - they are big with TNR & they have a Community Cat placement too. The kitties look to be reasonably healthy as the man that had lived there was trying to feed them even after they foreclosed his house & now it is unhabitable. While I would love to foster, with 4 inside & a colony of 7, I cannot, but I will be sending some extra funds to help. (I am already a Member of Tree House & Paws)
The goal is to keep these lovely house panthers from being put down - as you know many ferals are. That is why they are awesome, cause they will take a feral group & place them in an area for rodent control or for barn cats. They are spaying/neutering/chipping & vaccinating all these babies. Please help if you are able! Here is their website

It's been raining alot around here. Luckily there has been no water in the basement YAY so Momma thinks that the stone she had put down on the one side of the house worked. The bad part is that I have been limping really bad with this dampness. I get supplements and Onsior. Momma is going to fill some gabapentin and see if that helps too - she feels so bad when I can hardly wobble to my tree. Then in the back of her mind she hears the vet saying "quality of life" I know Momma does not want to give up on me! She just wishes I could tell her if the pain is tolerable or unbearable. This will probably sound terrible, but she had even thought of me having the surgery to remove the femur heads, but then I would have to have my other knee fixed, and all this in case my front leg got too bad and had to be removed from pain. SHe thinks too much I think. Although when she asked the vet about some of that - they are not really helpful - just what do you think? arg anyways hoping for some dry weather to help. Momma doesn't want it hot, just dry & like 80 would be perfect!
