Nikolai's Notes

Our Dearly Departed and A Big Job.

So sad to read about the kitties who have passed recently in Calvin's diary. Mommy just cries and cries. She hopes she doesn't live to see any more of us die, but then, who will take care of us if she dies first?
Anyway, the eldest of us is Ming, and she is only 8, so hopefully mommy will have more than another decade before she has to face that. We shall see. When you do rescue you see a lot more heartbreaking stuff.
Speaking of rescue, mommy will be cat-sitting about 80 cats next week. It will be hard because they are kinda far away. But, she helps with them at least every other week, so she is the most experienced in caring for them, aside from their rescuer. We have never met the barnful of cats, hopefully we never do, because that would probably mean our mommy is dead and we had no where else to go! We smell those kitties on mommies clothes when she comes home from helping clean their barn sometimes. There are so many! If mommy ever has a big sanctuary for that many kitties, she will need some volunteers. It is hard to keep on top of.
We still have fosters here. Hilda, the momma cat, is no longer allowed outside the bathroom. She was giving our PTSD kitty rescue, Sprite, a bad time, and he was getting crazy and hiding. He is already a spooked cat, so mommy can't have him getting any worse. Hilda still has two of her kittens, Squirt and Randall. She likes her kittens, but hates all other cats. Mommy would like Hilda to be adopted with one of her kittens, because it seems like a happier ending for her than being alone. Also, it is very hard to find people who want an "only cat." Squirt is a cute little black kitten, and Randall is a striped Main Coon-looking kitty, like his mom. He loves to sleep on mommy's lap. Mommy says she can keep either or both of the kittens if she has to, but Hilda has to go. She can't just live in the bathroom forever, and she has had months to get used to the other cats, but never has. Mommy doesn't want to take her to a shelter, but she isn't getting any interested parties from her ads. So sad. She visits Hilda in the bathroom and pets her. She is an affectionate kitty. I hate her guts, though. She chases us and tries to hurt us!
Anyway, I think mommy will cut a tree down for us and put it in the catio. Not until the cat-sitting job is over, though. As you can imagine, that will take most of her time.
Hope everyone is doing well. Getting cold up here in Oregon.
