Do you remember when I started feeding 4 stray cats in my front yard?
Do you remember that I went to a lot of trouble in renting a cage, capturing them and taking them to the vet to have spayed and neutered?
Do you remember that after the operation, one of the cats took off, never to be seen around my yard again?
Do you remember that I ended up with a total of 3 stray cats?
Well, I apparently missed one because one day, this gray cat that I had never seen before decided to make its home in my front porch, too.
I didn't like this cat because it would fight with my original 3 stray cats and wouldn't let them get on the porch nor eat. Every time I'd see this cat fighting, I'd run outside and spank it on its rear bottom and yell, NO! This went on for a few days and I finally told my Grandpa that I was going to grab this terrible cat at take it to the Humane Society and have it put up for adoption. I had no sooner had I finished this sentence, when I saw from the corner of my eye, 3 tiny kittens.
Yup! The unwanted cat was a mommy! I just couldn't believe my eyes. The only words that came out of my mouth were, "OH NO"!
I had no other choice but to give the Mommy cat another chance, and after many days of spanking her for attacking my original 3 cats, she finally learned to get along.
I now have a total of SEVEN cats! PLUS, Dolly, my indoor cat!
I just knew that you all wouldn't believe me about my now being the owner of SEVEN STRAY CATS, so here's a pic as proof!
The big wine barrels that you see on my porch USE to have beautiful plants and flowers. The little green wagon, USED to have beautiful Petunias! ALL my cats have totally destroyed them because they love to play and sleep on top of them.
Oh well, I guess its okay. Boo Whoo! I bought them a few little plastic toys which are placed inside the barren wine barrels. They actually play with them.
This Saturday, I went to the flea market to buy them a warm bed for the upcoming winter. I found only one with 2 slots where 2 kittens can sleep. It's really ugly, but they love to sleep in it. Next Saturday, I'll make another trip and look for more. I'll need a total of 7 cat beds.
Just look at these pic's. Aren't they the cutest little things you've ever seen?
I'm on my knees LORD! Please DON'T bless me with anymore stray cats and stray dogs!
Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme
Three little kittens, They lost their mittens, And they began to cry, Oh, mother dear, We sadly fear Our mittens we have lost. What! Lost your mittens, You naughty kittens! Then you shall have no pie. Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow. You shall have no pie.
