Our sweet friend, and my special Valentine Kaci Sunshine has left for the Rainbow Bridge. She was fighting very hard, but she just got so tired and could not fight anymore, so she had to leaver her Momma. I know it was very hard, and her Momma is devistated. I bow my head & say a special kitty prayer for her. I will miss you my orangey girl-friend. With love to my Sweet Kaci Sunshine.

 

in honor of Feral Cat Day - a Salute to my feral colony

Tig's Momma Renee here... first off I was able to trap 2 of the last 3 ferals yesterday. I thought they were both females & one was getting pudgy so I was convinced "she" was pregnant. I thought the younger was the baby of Bunny, the 1 year old. So imagine my surprise when I called yesterday afternoon to "check on my girls" when they told me they were both MALES! OK - well maybe we need to rethink the names Bunny & Baby-Cat. Anyways, there is only one left & it is definitely a boy. He is very friendly, which makes me think he got dumped or lost. No signs are up, and I have been trying to see if he is lost, but around here - I doubt it. So Fritz will at least get neutered next week & get food & pets every day. So here is my ode to the ferals in honor of Feral Cats Day 10/16.


Feral Kitty
I see you in the alley, little one - dirty & scared, looking for anything you can find to eat - I see you eating the corn from the bird feeders. My heart breaks, and I find some food for you. I know you cannot trust, as so many places shoo you away, or worse. But little cat, welcome to my yard. It is safe here, there are bushes to nap under, lawn chairs to laze on, a cool patio in the shade when it is hot, a fountain with running water, and when the cold comes, there is shelter with nice warm straw. Here you will get 2 meals at least a day, and there are toys to play with - so that yes, for a little while, you can just be a cat, and not fear the unknown that you must face every day. Here you will get a name, here you will get sung to, here you will get talked to, and if you allow it, a good scratch & pet. Did I mention the occasional chicken & fish? Here you will not have to worry about having kittens or fighting - that option will be removed for you. I wish I could find you all homes, but I know that all of you would not be content with that either. I was able to rescue some of you, and you are off living wonderful lives with families, but to the rest of you, I offer all I can to each of you - you will have love, and will know what it is like to be part of a little family. I will fight for you if need be, watch over you best as I can, keep you as healthy as possible. I can only hope that one day, it will be rare to see a feral, but in the meantime my little ones, you can call this HOME. I salute your fight for survival every day, and I love you all...

To my little feral family: Fluff, Inky, Scaredy, Onyx, Mini-me, Tiptoe, Peanut, Jazzy, Bunny, BC & Fritz

In Loving Memory of: Boots - Rest in Peace at the Rainbow Bridge

To: Rocky,Tipper,Penguin, Panda & Foxy-I hope you are ok wherever you went off to, or are at peace.

And to those that have found a home: Felix (with me!) Cooper, Tazi, Jett & Pearl- have a happy life!

As you can see, with the exception of a few that were not related, how quickly cats can multiply. This was all before I found help at Triple R Pets to TNR my group (and they found my woodpile made a nice place to have litters). Now there is only the 11 - whew!

To all of you - give your kitty an extra pet for those out there that do not always get one.

Soft pawtaps to you all...

 

thanks!

Wow DDP two days in a row! Thank you for the well wishes & gifties. Momma did see, but has only been popping in quick, got a bunch of work backed up, and the office is finally upstairs! Wow, I can sit on the top of the desk hutch & see out the window at the same time! Bonus for us along with Mom! The Dad is even repainting her file cabinet so it looks nice. Momma has been in such a good mood since her vacation & moving the office.

Momma want to write a separate entry in honor of Feral Cats Day that was October 16, so I will sign off for now. THis weekend is putting the garden/yard to bed for the season....bleck. I only like the cold weather cause Momma pulls out that fuzzy blankie I like.....
Have a wonderful weekend!

Ok so Momma & The Dad abandoned us! Yes you heard it - they had the nerve to leave us for a week! Well, of course I got to sleep in Nana's bed, but that is beside the point. They went all the way to Seattle to visit our human sister. Momma was excited as she had not seen her since February, and it was the first real vacation they have had in 16 years, so I guess it was ok! But now, Momma says work is backed up so she will be doing that all weekend, and finishing moving FINALLY the rest of the office from the basement to upstairs. So we may not be on much all weekend, cause Mom has lots to do, but we may lurk a bit. I do know Momma has been in a VERY good mood since she came home, so I am guessing that seeing a human daughter is better than catnip! I was so happy to see Momma that when she called my name, I stopped midstride & yelled MEOW! & RAN to Momma so she could pick me up.- (I loves my mom)
PS Nana spoiled us all week too...extra treats....don't tell Momma...

Momma misses Pearl

So there was a new kitten outside for a few days. Not part of the colony, definitely NOT feral. Momma says she acted just like I did when found home. Sweet little grey girl with green eyes & a huge purr. Why she climbed right up Momma's leg to get snuggles. Now of course Momma wanted to keep her. But honestly as much as the heart wanted this - and Momma wanted it BAD Momma knew that with Felix's issues & I am uptight enough with adding Felix & seeing the ferals outside sometimes, & our Nana not being up to snuff, now was not a good time to have another kitten, nor to really afford one. We get no $ help for the ferals, and them 12 eat ALOT. Momma hated to just TNR Pearl as the other colony kitties were picking on her and she is so sweet - well she deserves a family to love her. After many calls & emails, Momma found a wonderful place that is cageless & no kill - in a big bright beautiful home on the north side of Chicago, that would take her. What a nice place it is - & believe me Momma inspected it. The kitties have a floor of the home for themselves with tons of big windows & perches & beds. They all looked HAPPY. & the place was so clean no smells at all - even in the isolation room. The lady there said "please do not worry - I promise I will find her a good home, and she will be happy here until she finds just the right place" As a matter of fact, after Pearl has a day or two of antibiotics & a bath, she will get to play in the kitten room with other babies for friends! There are 3 kittens just waiting to play with Pearl that someone left on the lady's back step in a bag...can you beleive that? The lady there is also friends with the lady that runs the TNR program Mom is registered with, so for sure we know it is an A-OK place. Momma of course cried the entire time, and is still crying & would go back to get her in a second. Amazing how in 6 days, they are in your heart. It hurts so much Momma says, but it was the right thing to do. Now, go have a wonderful life sweet little Pearly-girl! and please...no more new kitties come in the yard - it is just too hard for Momma.

Aside from Maizy really causing some trouble, all has been good. I have had no more problems with my eyes or sneezing, and my ears are all clean. Very curious thing indeed. We celebrated Nana's birthday yesterday. Mom found her a CD with pretty music & birds singing & chirping in it. It kinda made me hungry....
Momma took her out for dinner & they got dessert there so that there would be NO CAKE here. HAHA Maizy. I don't get it. I really do not like people food at all, except I will lick butter if I can get my paws on it. I was running & jumping the other day so funny that Momma was really laughing at my antics. Some days you feel like a nut...so the candy-bar advert says! I am not sure when I go back to the vet - Mom is in no hurry, just when my regular scheduled visit will be. FINE BY ME! Happy Talk like a pirate day! ARRGH!
