Follow me!

I received this painting, today. Cris of Midwest Mountain Folk Art painted it. I could not pass it up. I was like, "hey, it's me!" lol. Cris wrote a little card and I had to share her comment. "don't you wish it was this easy to catch the feral kitties? Maybe you should carry around a baton and a ribbon" that is not verbatim, but it is so true!

Mama kitty still comes to my porch 3 times a day. She is a smart feral. She knows to wait for me and I will bring her the yummy soft food. I am holding off on trapping her till I know where the kittens are. They are probably 3 weeks old now. I wish she would bring them to me. That will never happen. So, if god does not answer my prayers on her, then we will have 4 more kittens added to the feral community. That is way to many!

Denver's ABC 7 News

I received a letter today, I thought I would share:

Dear Jennifer,

You were nominated for our 7Everyday Hero Award and although you were not selected as a recipient, all of us at Denver's 7 have heard about your great work taking care of homeless animals in our community.

Your contribution is very admirable and your enthusiasm and dedication are second to none. We applaud your efforts to reach out and improve the lives of your fellow Coloradans. It is people like you who really make a difference.

It was a nice surprise and totally unexpected. I do not feel like a hero, but I do what I can.

Momma kitties and even more babies?

Momma kitty (the one that got away) had her babies the other day. She was missing for a day or so and I ran into her this morning. Skinny and her tail was all wet. Looks like she just gave birth. Well, I am gonna keep an eye on her and see if I can capture some babies. I was not fortunate, last time and had to TNR her litter. Those where the three black cats I fixed (that I want to take to my farm, god willing) So, I really hope I can get them while they are young enough to socialize and find homes for.

I also ran into a neighbor over were I feed and he said he saw one white kitten and three black kittens. Remember that nursing female I released a few weeks ago? They mus be hers! She is the illusive one, so I am very concerned that she will not bring them out to eat when I go over. Lord help me now. Looks like I may have 9 more cats to trap!!!

I may have to take up yoga, again. I need to something to help me relax with all this going on, plus complaints from neighbors. It is very stressful!

Lucky Kitties

The kittens go to their forever homes, this weekend. They are four lucky kitties! This is bittersweet. No feral life for them! I will try to take a few more photo's before they go. These are from last night, so they are not the best. They are full of energy, running all over my living room. Their first vet appointment was this morning. They did not even peep when they got their shots. I trained them well! heehee.

Kitty mania (enjoy it while it lasts)

Only two more weeks and these cuties have to part ways. They are getting more and more independent each day. They are pretty bored of their big room and would love to venture out, if they could. They are still the sweetest and are now climbing my leg, back, whatever they can and no it does not feel good with those razor sharp claws! lol
