Well gamma saw Susie again, and Susie came in the house but no sign of the kittens. We suggested to Gamma that she get a humane trap, bait it with tuna, and place it by where Susie's been seen crawling under the house. Gamma however is hemming and hawing saying "I don't know....I don't think it'll work....they could get out..." etc. (SIGH)
Mama keeps telling Gamma to just try it, and cuz Gamma's old, tired and in pain she just says "OK" but never does it. We have told her fur days to do it and she just brushes it off.
There is NOBODY willing to crawl under the front of the house to look. Gamma just says they could be anywhere under the house. Her "furiends" refuse to believe her when she says Susie is nursing and has babies under there. And because her furiends hate and ignore us, they won't listen to us either. MY MAMA IS NOT STUPID! Neither is Gamma, altho we just wish she would take our advice!
PLEASE....PURRAY FUR GAMMA TO USE COMMON SENSE....AND BAIT & TRAP THE KITTENS SO THEY CAN BE BROUGHT INSIDE.....PLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEAAAAASSEEEE....

Mama and I can't believe it!
I'm DDP again fur the 2nd day! Must be those folks at Catster really like my diary, MOL...
Thank you to efuryone who's posted comments, and sent me rosettes and gifts on these special days. I WUV U ALL!
I been getting lots of lovin and treats on account of my diary honors. I also got a scolding from mama cuz I hissed at her 3 times when she went to feed me. I like to hiss, what can I say? I hiss just cuz I feel like hissing! I told her, "Ma, I'm a rebel and you don't tell me what to do!!!" But she said, "When you get a job that pays some of your bills, then you can order me around. But until then, I'm the boss." HISSSSSSS! Stupid humans. MOL I love 'em but I'll nefur understand 'em.
Gamma hasn't seen Susie since Thursday, but the fact that she's looking fur a place to bring in the kittens is good. We just hope she'll do it soon. We reminded her to get or borrow a humane trap fur the babies. Since Susie comes in the house on her own already, she probably wouldn't need one. (Or would she?) Once they're in the house, Gamma said we could pick out names. She is thinking of fostering them until someone wants them or can take them...and if something should happen to one of her older babies, one of these little ones might fill in the gap. We'll keep yall posted.
OK I need to look out the window. Bye and TANK YOU AGAIN FUR MY DDP a 2ND DAY!

Hi and TGIF efuryone!
What a great Friday it is, to be a Daily Diary Pick....I am SO happy.....thank you to efuryone at Catster who chose me....thank you to my booful SABLE, my furefur love, fur your love and support too...and most importantly tank you furry much to my MAMA who transcribes my thoughts and meows into diary entries and also along with me tries to keep yall updated on stray kitties and such.
We have some news on Susie....Gamma said yesterday (Thursday) she came in looking fur a place to bring her kittens. Mama suggested the master bedroom since nobody uses it most of the time, it's big, there's lots of room to run, and since me & my sibs were just there, there's a litterbox and food & water bowls. (We had 2 litterboxes, the ofur one was in the den where Greta stayed.) Mama also asked how to get the kittens out and people suggested humane traps and tuna - all GRRRREAT suggestions - so unless Susie now brings out her babies, we are trying to get Gamma to do that. Gamma said she's just going to let Susie bring them out, or wait fur the kittens to come out from under the house. Is that a good idea? :/ (IMO, I'm not sure.)
BTW we also have news on 2 of Gamma's older cats: One of her cats, Becca, who is 12, has a big lump on her tail right by her back. She is also wetting places. The other female, Jackie, who's also 12, is wetting all ofur the place too. Mama and her human brofur found several wet and stinky spots where they went. Jackie wet the bedding in the guest room while we there too. :( Gamma's tried to catch the girls in order to bring them to the vet, but they are really small - even smaller than my sis Greta - so it's easy fur them to hide and since Gamma can't walk or move very well, she can't look in all the little nooks and crannies we kitties can hide in. The girls are way ofurdue on shots and such, and may need really expensive stuff. (Oh I furgot to add, Jackie barely eats much and sometimes throws up too.) We are not sure if these kitties are really ill or not, so keep purrs up fur them.
Tank you again and remember to purrrrrrrr! :)

There are kittens under this house and we have proof! (Nothing physical yet, but we're trying.)
This afternoon Mama went in the guest bathroom of Gamma's house and heard mewing. She checked all along the closets, sinks, cabinets...nothing. It sounded like it was coming from under the house.
So Mama has now gone under the house looking fur kittens. She then heard a SECOND mew, different from the first one. Mama thinks are at least 2 kittens under there, and that Susie has hidden them in some insulation under the house. It's furry difficult fur Mama to manuever under there but she has the location pinpointed approximately as to where they are. Ohhhhh how mama wishes she could get at them and bring them inside!!!
Mama DID open a few panels of siding so that the kittens could come out if they wanted to. (Please....)
WE NEED HELP AND PURRS! PURR FUR THE 2 KITTENS PLUS ANY OTHERS UNDER THERE, IF ANY. AND PURR FUR SUSIE TOO. PLEASE PURR THAT HUMANS COME TO HELP, SINCE GAMMA'S FURIENDS WON'T DO IT AND THE SHELTERS ARE TOO BUSY AND FULL.

We have some news.
Mama saw Susie in person, and she is a thin and small kitty. When she came in the house her nipples were flattened. But tonight Susie went out and her breasts were enlarged & nipples red. We think SHE HAS BEEN NURSING because her nipples look VERY red and stretched out as if someone had been suckling on them. (!!!)
So, we know Susie has had kittens but we still have not seen them. Mama did see Susie crawl under Gamma's house tonight so we think they may be under there. Her (human) brofur looked under the house and said he didn't see or hear anything. Susie crawled under the front of the house so the human might not have looked there.
A couple days befur that, Gamma's "friends" who help Gamma with housework and some ofur things (like mowing) came by to check on Gamma and gave her an attitude. The wife was so mad at Mama she was shaking and un-friended herself from mama's Facebook page. (The wife said her anger towards mama had been "building and building" and made it obvious she has been holding a grudge against mama fur at least one year, NEFUR telling mama what she did to make her so angry and ignoring mama's apologies & requests fur forgiveness.) The wife proceeded to vent to Gamma about SOME of the terrible things Mama said or did to her and her hubby. He said he doesn't think she was efur pregnant. WELL HE IS AND WAS WRONG!
The hubby told Mama rudely and firmly, "I'm telling you for the last time there are NO kittens on this property." When the wife came ofur to Gamma's house shaking in anger the hubby was with her, and he was rude to Gamma too. The hubby then told Gamma the same thing he told Mama, that there are no kittens on the property. WE BEG TO DIFFER!
There are 104 acres to Gamma's property. Are they trying to say they combed all 104 acres looking fur them, wading thru weeds and climbing the hills and valleys? Also, did they look under the house????????? (Remember, these "furiends" do not know much about cats but refuse to believe us when we say Susie is nursing or lactating. Mama has done research on this and consulted with breeders and vets!)
These furiends of Gammas have become furry rude towards her lately. We believe they do not sincerely care about cats unless they receive adequate funds for anything they do fur her. Gamma's "furiends" are acting more and more like manipulative con artists. They hate Mama, they are afuraid of Gamma's brofur Dave (in TX who is in charge of funds and such), and they probably do not like Gamma's oldest brofur Tom either, because we are becoming intolerant of their manipulation and demands. But they claim to love Gamma, while talking down to her.
Mama also got an email from Second Chance saying that they tried to Gamma and "she acted like she didn't want to talk." They said cuz it was kitten season they were full and their fosters & agency had no room fur any more. So we don't know what we will do now.
This is all in God's hands. So while you purray for Susie and her babies, that we KNOW are alive and well somewhere, could you also purray that if it be God's will, He brings someone new into her life to help her with housework and ofur thing? These furiends are only around if Gamma is paying them and have been saying rude things to Gamma. They don't show much respect to her or family, so we are asking the Lord to bring some other folks along to help her with things. Remember Gamma is 81 years old & still recuperating from her broken back so we need purrs.
Thank you fur reading my LONG entry.

Mama and me are frustrated with Gamma again.
Susie went out again this morning (probably to check on and feed her babies) and came back this afternoon all lovey dovey, Gamma said. Gamma says she wants to be part of the family and the ofur kitties are not letting her near Gamma.
Now there is talk that the kittens are in the garage, since there are holes and openings underneath. So when mama goes to visit Gamma, she's going to look fur the kittens.
Gamma's also confused cuz she said today Susie's nipples didn't look like they were sticking out as much as the night befur. Gamma's now saying that since there are probably kittens around, she might not keep Susie. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
We know Susie and her babies should be kept togefur as long as possible, but since she's been feeding her and giving her a shelter fur this long, why not keep her once the babies are old enuf to be adopted? That is, if they're not feral...could they be feral??
GAMMA PLEASE MAKE UP YOUR MIND!
and PLEASE PURRAY FUR SUSIE, GAMMA AND MAMA. MAMA'S GOING NUTS! MOL

Early this morning Gamma said she saw Susie, and got to examine her belly. Her nipples were sticking right out she said, and looked as tho someone (!!!) had been at them.
I dunno about yall, but mama and me think this means SUSIE HAS KITTENS SOMEWHERE!
Gamma is convinced they're not in her house....so we suggested having someone come and look under the house. But Gamma won't do that, cuz she says it's too dark and there's too many places they can hide.
Mama's not able to go under the house either but she's hoping she can do something. She's hoping she can see if there's an opening where Susie crawls under. She is also not too physically able to move that much on acct. of knee & back problems, but she'll try.
Keep purring fur those kittens, they're probably alive somewhere!

Gamma called mama tonight with good news. Gamma was getting ready to go to a dr. appointment and Susie came running up to the front door wanting to come in! So Gamma let her in and she said she ran into her (Gamma's) bedroom and started rolling around the floor. Then of course Gamma had to go to the doctor.
When Gamma came back, she didn't find Susie but at least she knows now that Susie is safe and inside. The windows are kept shut.
We are so FURRY GLAD that Susie did the right thing and came home. Gamma said Susie's going to live there and be her cat now. This means Gamma has 5 cats....her furiend is going to pay fur Susie's vet care, since he's a cat lover too.
Welcome home Susie, you are a blessed kitty to have people who love you and will see to it that you get taken care of. (And spayed ASAP!)

I have bad news fur efuryone. Susie apparently jumped out the kitchen window of Gamma's home, while Gamma was at the nursing home during rehab. Her furiends came to do some cleaning and they brought their children. They opened the kitchen window about an inch. Susie is scared of efuryone, and we think the kids scared her to the point that she jumped thru the screen of the kitchen window. Gamma found a BIG HOLE in the screen. :(
Gamma also said there is NO SIGN OF ANY KITTENS.
I'm sorry I have to tell yall this after all the trouble so many went to with their purrs and support and paw mail, but you did what you could. Gamma said she's going to leave out some food fur Susie just in case she comes back. Since Gamma lives in the country and there are coyotes we don't know IF Susie will be back....all we can do is purray.
Thank you again fur all you have done fur Susie and Gamma. Mama's going to see if she can see her when she goes down next Thursday.
