Well boys and girls,it appears as though we officially have a new addition to our fur family. (He just got his own page here at Catster,so I guess he's a keeper.)
His name is Nikolaus. His mama showed up last winter and our Mom found her rummaging through the garbage can out in the alley. So she started feeding her and gradually convinced her to start eating REAL cat food by setting up food,water,and shelter in the dog house.(Dutch is an indoor dog so no other reason to have a dog house outside.) One day Mom noticed that mama cat was about to become a mama. Mama cat kept coming to eat every day,but then disappeared for about a week. Eventually she came back...somewhat thinner and ravenously hungry. As the weeks went past mama cat came and went and one day she brought her almost 6 week old babies with her. Then one day mama cat decided to pretty much leave the two babies on their own. She would still come to eat,but wanted nothing more to do with her little ones.
It took awhile,but eventually our mom gained the full trust of one kitten. He would follow her everywhere and decided to come in one day. He's been living inside now for about 3 weeks or so. He's friends with everyone and is learning to be a normal kitten. He gets to play,sleep where ever he wants,and is pretty comfortable. His sister remains on her own outside yet. Mom is working with her and is making pretty good progress with getting the little girl to trust her more every day. Hopefully,Mom will be able to convince little girl to come inside to live with her brother Nik and the rest of us. The weather will be getting ugly soon and outside is no place for a baby on her own.
So...that is the story of Nikolaus. =^.^=
Stay tuned. There will be at least two more diary entries in the next two days. We've got birthdays to celebrate here. :)
