Momma 2012

YOU ARE MISSED

 

Momma is our first loss in this group.  It has been hard to take because she was such a good, sweet and loyal cat.  It is believe we lost her to the coyote that has been hanging around the area.

 

 Momma is very very trap wise and disappears if she smells one.  She need to be vetted. Best guess she is about 5 plus years old.   She was one of the two mothers that had four kittens each.  The other mother was hit by a car.  Momma's  kittens are Skittles, Twin, Spot and RT.  RT and Skittles have forever homes. 

 

The other mother had Fluffy (a long hair tiger male), Sissy (long hair tiger female), Munskin (Siamese short legs male) and Bob (long hair orange male)  Fluffy and Munskin have forever homes.  Bob did for a while, however they were having problems keeping him inside and they lived on a busy road, so he has returned to the fold

Spot 2015

Spot, another of the original colony.  About 18 months old.  Needs to be vetted but very trap wise.  Look at him wrong and he runs.  One of Momma's kittens  Being Neutered 5/18/2017

Sissy 2015

his is Sissy, she has been spayed and vetted.  Beautiful long haired tabby about 18 months old. One of the original 12 in our colony.  She believes that it is her job to enforce the pecking order.

 

Thank goodness for the Maine Coon in her blood lines, she is taking the winter well.

 

spayed

Bob 2015

Bob is a beautiful long hair orange.  It's a good thing he is so beautiful because he isn't the brightest.  He has been neutered and vetted.  Wants to be friendly but not sure.  He is approx 18 months old.

 

At one time he was adopted, however, he likes being outside too much, and he had to return to us.

Daddy 2012

Daddy is neutered and vetted and hates his picture taken.  He is a short hair black with a regal posture.  Not sure how old Daddy is except we know he is at 5 plus years old.  He does have an attitude and knows he is regal and deserves things his way.

Toby 2014

Toby is cool, don't believe me just ask him.  He proudly sports his tipped ear.  Approx 3 years old.   Favorite things are laying in the sun, poetry, homemade dinners, and catnip.  As a short hair tiger stripe, his regal bearing is what makes him stand out in a crowd.  He has been neutered and vetted.

Doofas 2007

Doofas is at least  10 years old.  Very wary and very battled scared.  He has learned his place in the food chain. he is quite willing to wait his turn because he knows if food runs out, more will show up.

A year ago when I inherited them, there was a very old battle scared Black and White tom cat that everyone called Doofas. He was bone thin and to tell the truth I was fully prepared to lose him over the winter. He was everything you expect for a poster child of a feral cat. He not only survived, he also put on weight. Except for his battle scars he is a beautiful cat. In the past year he has never let anyone come close to him.

This morning he humbled me. He was there eating the remains of last nights dinner when I came out with breakfast. Since he knows the rules about kittens eating first he started to move off. I called to him, and he not only stopped, he came over to me. As I slowly reached down to pet him, I was expecting he to run off. He didn't run off, he let me pet him. For several minutes I was barely breathing for fear of scaring him, I scratched his head. Since everyone was waiting for breakfast, I stopped, spoke softly to him and dished out the food. As he sat quietly I continued to talk to him and he never made a move to run. There is hope for him. If I can get him socialized, I believe I know someone who will give him a forever home to relax and live quietly in his senior years

Big Daddy 2006

Big Daddy is a long hair gray at least 9-10 years old only comes late at night so it is hard to get a picture of him.  From the information given to me from another here on the block who feeds our block cats, Big Daddy has quite a network of feeders and looks like he honors those of us who feed him best.  He is beautiful and looking very healthy at this point and it is my main goal to make sure I make every moment he allows as good as I can make it.  He is now allowing me to pet him, so I guess he likes what I feed him.

 

He as now becomes my alarm clock, if breakfast is late he will scream at the door until breakfast is served.

Today I was able to pick Big Daddy up (of course he hissed) bring him inside.  I put him at the feeding area and went and dished him up a can of food.  He proceeded to eat that,  then he had some dry food just to make sure he was full and drank his water.  He looked around for a bit and decided that he wanted back outside.  He was inside for about 1/2 hour without freaking out.  And I was able to pet him (him hissing of course)  But he took it all in stride and wasn't upset or scared.

 

Big Daddy has been a fixture in the neighborhood for over 10 years.  He is part Maine Coon so is very fluffy and has a look on his face that would scare even a cat lover like me until you get to know him.

He didn't come often as at first he was not in my count but soon he started showing up more often then my offerings of food went from dry cat food to warm homemade stews.  It seems he has a large network of feeders that he has built up over the years.  However even with this, when I met him, he was rather thin and you could tell he had a bad case of ear mites.

The first winter I worried about him even making it through and made sure that whenever he showed up, I made food available.  Thank goodness by the end of winter he was in better shape than when winter started.  

Slowly he started spending more time with us and I was able to get close enough without him running away and I was able to get Revolution on him.  So now I knew his ear mites were treated, fleas and ticks were a thing of the past and he now lets me know when he needs a treatment again.  Seems he knows a good thing when it happens.

Then came the magic day when he let me pick him up.  You have to understand several months have passed where he would let me pet him but he would hiss and growl.  However this day I was feeling brave and picked him up.  Of course came the normal hissing and growling, however when I started scratching his head he started adding purring to the mix.  I have now learned the growling and hissing is his way of telling me not to expect much and the purring is his way of telling me that he likes me.  Talk about mixed signals.  

But the good thing with being able to pick him up is that I can judge his weight and make sure what I am seeing is more than fur.  I would guess he is now weighing between 15-18 pounds.  Yes, he is a big boy with lots of muscle.

 

He has been in several times and did not freak out.  I was hoping with his age he would accept a indoor life.  However when he had his meal and did some checking out of things it was outside he wanted to go.  But there is hope that sometime he will accept inside and a soft bed to end his last time on earth.  I am hoping he will allow me to hold his paw as he passing to the Rainbow Bridge.  It is upsetting to even think of this beautiful regal cat not being part of my life

Big Boy AKA Clarence Crumplear 2007

Big Boy AKA Clarence Crumplear is  approx 10 years old.  Orange and white.  He is having to work his way into the group but he wants to stay.  Because he was so ratty and looked so bad, I really didn't give him a real name at first.   And I tried not to get too attached to him.  However, he is plumbing up and doesn't look quite so ratty.  Carol gave him the name Clarence Crumplear which seems to suit him.  He has worked hi way into the group and in fact has been taking his turn babysitting the younger cats, protecting them from the coyote. He is fast becoming a favorite amoung the group.
