Alley Cat Collage


Pea of Whimsical Endeavors made this little 3x3 magnet. Isn't it cute. I just thought I would share. I was fortunate to win one of her make do's. She said she was sending me a surprise. It was real nice of you Pea to think of me.

Hissssss


I listed some new paintings on Ebay. Remember all proceeds from my art go to my kitty rescue. I have 5 cats on my list for vaccinations, spaying, nuetering and all that food. I am finding that the larger of the 4 kittens needs much more work. So, I have to purchase more baby food. At a $1 a pop! When I was giving them that for the medicine, that was when he let me pet him. 'He.' That is funny because I do not know 'his' sex. 'He' won't let me near him. LOL This picture was taking between his hissing at me. I could not get a picture of his teeth fast enough.

Kitten Photos





These two are doing so well. They love to play. The Siamese eye is cleared up. Not all gone, but looks so much better.

Another kitten?

Oh my heart sank this morning. I went 15 minutes early to feed the alley cats. On my way I saw a black cat sitting in the middle. It's not a cat, it was a little kitten. The gray's sibling. Darn it! Looks like it may start all over. I am really beside myself. Once I get two really tame, then I got my work cut out for me..again. I am not sure how to approach this. I have 4 kittens that are at 3 different social levels...now I will have a 5 and possibly 6 kittens at 5 social levels. I need help!!!!!

Now I think cloning could be beneficial!

Venturing out


I took the two younger kittens into my office. They did not hide too much. I think they were more curious. The gray one is about ready for adoption. She greets me at the door and is always playing with her toys. Her brother won't be ready till he gets better. Unfortunately I have not found homes for any of them yet. I am not in a terrible hurry because they can always need more socializing. The other two, well I may have to find homes for my foster CC and even Polly, so I can keep them. They may never be tame to anyone but me. The one is still a cuddle bug, but won't let you stand near her. She always has to climb up on something and cower till I give her a rub, then she is all mush! Funny. I do not think that anyone else would have the patience for that. The other feral..well, lets say I may have myself a one room cat or barn cat. Either way, I do not think she will be real tame, but at least she won't be let loose in the alley. NO WAY..I can pet her when she eats, that is better than anything I can do to a true feral cat.

Little poopers eye is still swollen and the third eye was almost close for a few hours. I will call the vet on Tuesday if it is not cleared up by then.

Poor little poopers

One of the smaller kittens has an eye infection. Actually, all the kittens are on antibiotics, right now. The doctor said, there was no need to separate them, if they'd get it, they'd get it. It just looks so painful. I just hope no-one else gets this eye thing. The other one's cleared up fast, but this little ones just seems to be getting worse. Even though, I am administering antibiotic eye drops. I feel helpless and just wish he would get better soon!

It's funny now....

This morning, I get up at 7 am to check on the kittens and give them their morning meal. First, I have to explain...the other day, two of the little kittens somehow got behind the washer and dryer. I have blankets, pillows, a board and towels set up so they cannot sneak back their to hide. Well, somehow they managed. So, I had a heck of a time, pulling the dryer out from the wall and trying to scare them out. Then I had to climb back there and wrestle with them (they were freaking out at this point) My leg got all scratched up, but I got them out. Then I set up even more pillows to make sure they cannot find another way back there.

Sooooo....anyway, back to this morning. I walk into the room and there was one kitty sitting on the dryer. NO OTHER kitties around. I checked the cabinets and everywhere I could think (the room is small mind you) So, I thought...great the two farels are behind the washer/dryer. SO, I woke up Dave and we pulled the dryer out..no kitties. We sat there looking at each other. LORD, how can they just disappear? We looked for holes in the machines that they may have climbed up in. We were pretty much dumbfounded. Then Dave opens a cabinet and finds them behind all my paint supplies. Oh what a relief. I have no idea how they can open a cabinet and crawl in (one up on the wall even) Not too fun to deal with first thing in the morning, that is for sure.

It's in the numbers

Sometimes I think of how little I am doing for these kitties. I know, you think I am doing a lot. But, I feel I could do a lot more. So, I wanted to mathematically figure out how many lives are being saved (meaning not being born in the wild) because of spaying and neutering. So, just based on 3 females (which I have rescued twice that number) expidentially over 10 years they would have have over 1 million offspring! Oh My! That is a lot of poor kitties left to a horrible fate on the street and getting killed.
