This has been my week for cats and kittens visiting the porch. Even though we no longer have pets of our own we seem to be a resting stop along the way for passing felines.
Perhaps it's the mirror where they seem to enjoy stopping and primping.....
.............or could it be my French toile covered cushions and pillows, warm and inviting in the Autumn sunshine.
This is Bella peering in at me through the dining room window. A pretty kitty who needs to be renamed as 'she' has now been re-classified as 'he'. Living down the street, he belongs to three little girls and is being allowed to run wild without a collar, or being neutered......a big no-no as we all know!
While Bella was sleeping, perfectly color co-ordinated alongside my gourds, I called the owners who came and took him home. I sure hope they take better care of this very friendly, handsome young cat, and soon!
Meanwhile an update on the feral cats we've been catching (dislike the word trapping but in all honesty that's what it was). We managed to get the last little all black kitten on Thursday and was he ever ferocious! The animal control officer had a very hard time getting him out of the cage and resorted to the burlap bag which she used to get the mom. This means all four kittens and the mom have gone from the garden...........we are so glad. Of course there are still several more feral cats around so we won't be surprised if we go through this yet again some day!
