He's a Ninja kitty
About a year ago this little Siamese guy starting showing up on my back porch looking for food. I fed him and he's been coming back ever since. I vaguely remember seeing him in the yard of someone who used to live at the end of our street. They have moved and left this poor kitty to fend for himself. Why people do this is beyond me. They are totally out-of-it sick. Anyway, I gave him the name of Ying-Yang as it popped right into my head as an oriental name. He's street-wise and has not been neutered so I can't let him in the house. My boy Sampy and Ying-Yang have got into it before last summer and that's a good enough reason. Also, he's skittish (I can't blame him one bit). He will sit on the back porch and meow and he'll let me feed him> He also stays there when I sit on the porch and watch him eat.
I wish I could help this kitty more than I have by giving him shelter too. I'm afraid to pick him up right now. I'm also afraid that he may have something wrong with his health because of his being a stray. He is a very beautiful kitty as seen in the four pictures I have taken. He wasn't afraid of the camera and let me take these pics of him. That says he was once domesticated. Somewhere in that beautiful kitty there is a tame side wanting to be reached. Could I be the one to further tame him and bring him to the vet to have him checked out and neutered? I estimate Ying-Yang to be about 3-4 years old. I don't think he's much older than that. I've seen his teeth when he meows and they are still nice and white. He is now part of the family in some aspects. He gets his meals here and sometimes he sleeps on the back porch.
FURTHER UPDATES: Yingy is now a permanent member of our family. He's been neutered and is going through the transitional period that comes after a neuter.
ALSO: He got his first Diary Pick on 9/15/07. After that he got DDP on: 11/9/07; 12/12/07; 2/22/08; 2/28/08; and 3/12/08. Way to go, Yingy!
FURTHER UPDATE: On September 23, 2007 I had to return Yingy to his outdoor life as he and Bailey Gray Cloud got into a terrible fight which rendered Bail having to go to the vet for treatment of a bite wound above his left leg. It was very painful and swollen with pus. Bail was put on antibiotics and has recovered fully. Now, I have been making calls for someone to help Yingy get a permanent home. He'll be a wonderful cat for a family who doesn't have other cats and can give him lots of TLC and full time and devotion.
FURTHER UPDATE: As of January 5, 2008, Yingy is back in the house and we are taking it slow this time around. Yingy will become gradually introduced to the others. Presently, I want him to get more used to being in the house before the introductions begin. Right now, he has pretty well bonded with me. He's a very gentle and affectionate cat when I touch him. He LOVES belly rubs. None of my other cats like belly rubs. He's still a little skittish if I make a sudden movement. He's now starting to stay on the bed when I come in the master bedroom instead of running under the bed. Yingy has great potential so far. I surely hope he can learn to get along with the others in time.
FURTHER UPDATE: I gave Yingy another six months to adapt to the household. He got along with Sampy and I. He and Bail got into it again on Easter Sunday 2008, and my decision was to find him another home. On May 24, 2008, I met a nice young lady who loved Siamese cats and had no other cats. I turned him over to her. A few weeks later, I contacted her, and Yingy had adapted to his new home and got along great with his new Mommy. I had done all I could and had saved him from the elements. If he and Bail (even Merl) would have gotten along, he would still be here.

On Friday, I went to the vet's to pick up a bag of Royal Canin SO dry food for Merlin. One of their techs put the bag around back for me as I had parked in the back thinking that all front parking spaces were taken. Anyway, there was a nice gentleman there who offered to carry the bag to my car, and when he saw how badly I walked, he helped me walk down the long driveway to my car. He then went back to get the bag of food and put it in my car.
You're probably wondering why I'm posting this on Yingy's page. Well, this has to do with Yingy, so please read on . . .
This gentleman and I talked for an hour outside my car about our arthritic problems and other health issues that seniors get. We then got on the subject of cats. He said he and his wife had many ferals, fosters and house cats, and were with a cat rescue group. He also said they lived near me and he told me where. Then it all came back to me; his wife was the lady who helped me trap Yingy back in September 2007!
She's the one who lent me the trap and told me how to do it. I then delivered Yingy to her and she took him to my vets to be neutered. What a small world!!
I told the gentleman that I tried my best with rehabilitating Yingy and how my giving him T-touches and massages worked to help him trust me! I also mentioned how he bonded with only Sampy who is 1/4 Siamese! I told him Yingy had to be given away to another lady as he occasionally beat up Bailey Gray Cloud. He fully understood my reasons for doing this. He said he'll ask his wife if she remembers the Siamese she helped me capture to get neutered.
Anyway, that's about it. I just thought I'd share this adventure with everyone.
I hope Yingy is doing great with his other Mommy. I haven't heard anything so I assume everything is fine.

I'm writing a short note because I'm thinking of Yingy at this time. I'm hoping that he and his second Mommy have enjoyed the past year and a half together.
Yes, it's been that long. I gave him away some time around Memorial Day in 2008 just before I went on my Colorado vacation.
Here's hoping that 2010 is a prosperous one for both of them and they have a loving and tight bond in the many years to come.

It's been exactly one year today that I turned Yingy over to his new Mommy.
I still believe my decision to do this was in the best interest to all involved, including Yingy, himself.
He needed more TLC and one-on-one with a new Mommy who didn't have other cats for him to compete with. I know he was an alpha cat and so are Bail and Merl. That's why it didn't work.
I pray that the past year with his new Mommy is still going great, and that he'll never have to roam the streets again looking for his next meal and someone to love him.
That's about it except I've found another pic in my computer which I'll be loading up this weekend.
