Kitties, we are going to be taking a short break. Someone locked the gate where the feral cats the mom has been taking care of live. She walked around the fence and found a way back to the cats. It involved a tricky embankment, brambles, vines and broken bottles. Then she lost her footing, and fell on a rock.
This is the result. (The sheets were washed and we were going to help the mom make the bed after she was back from visiting the ferals. That didn't happen for obvious reasons.)
That big bump isn't her knee!
We are purring for our mom. Maybe you have a couple purrs to spare? And yes, she is still feeding the ferals.
What a day our Gotcha Day was! We want to thank all the kitties who posted at the Tabby Cat Club and all the ones who commented here to help we raise money to improve the lives of the kitties at PAWS. Because we wanted to give the maximum time to everyone, we will publish the results tomorrow. Again, thanks every kitty! You are pawsome!
Here's to our two sweet girls who add so much charm and fun to our lives!
We love you both!
8 years ago, Oui Oui was the last of her litter, the little kitten
no one else wanted, crying and ignored until the mom picked her up
and decided to take her home.
4 years ago, Mica Moo was the new playmate for Oui Oui
when The Girl went off to collich.
Oui Oui sees Mica Moo for the first time.
We are so glad you stopped by to join us,
come help us celebrate!
We hope you have fun,
we have all our favorite things out!
We've got a box, just for you!
And there's paper inside to make it comfy.
Help yourself to a delightful drink.
And we have plenty of snacks.
Some we even made ourselves!
Little egg peeps.
We "borrowed" a quiche the mom made
with bacon and cheese.
You'll hafta pick out the mushrooms.
And plenty of nip!
Leave room for the cake!
We've collected all our favorite toys
for you to play with.
You don't mind if we get this party started, do you?
Today, we are having a Comment-A-Thon here at TwinkletoeTails, so if you are visiting don't forget to leave a comment. You don't have to have a blog to leave one, but we ask just one comment per blog or purrson. For each comment we will donate 25 cents to PAWS, the rescue whose kitties are featured at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life with Moosey, Gracie, Zoey and also Shelter Cats with Tommie and Mickey Mouser.
PAWS has a brand new program, Habitat for Cats, to enrich the lives of the shelter kitties in a stimulating cage free environment while they await their new homes and our donation will go to help start the program. We hope this benefit helps the kitties have an exciting, fun place to live while they wait for their families to find them.
We are also hosting a first ever Post-A-Thon at the Tabby Cat Club, also to benefit PAWS! Please stop by to see all your favorite tabbies having fun! For each post, we are donating $1, up to $100, so if you are a member, be sure to post there today. (One post per blog please.)
Thank you so much for visiting and sharing in our fun and joy! We hope you enjoyed yourself! And thanks for making this benefit a success!
In our town, there are many feral cat colonies. When the economy tanked people could not afford their homes and they left their cats behind when they moved.
This week the caretaker of a colony near the mom's work was hospitalized unexpectedly, and for an indefinite period of time. The mom volunteered to help and is taking care of them in the evenings.
This pretty little silver kitty was the first one the mom saw.
The next day she was surprised to see not one
but three silver kitties.
Look at that face! OMC!
It reminds the mom of her first cat, Leia.
There are five kitties in this picture.
Can you find them?
It's a little eerie knowing there are a dozen sets of eyes watching you
yet you don't see any of them,
you just know they are there.
I've circled the third silver kitty and one of two all black ones.
They are all so shy, grabbing a mouth full of food and
running back into the under growth to eat.
Although this colony was TNR'ed
some of the cats look like they don't have clipped ears.
Perhaps they are newbies or maybe the entire colony wasn't caught.
Time for the binoculars!
And maybe the traps.
The mom's first cats, Attila (L) and Leia (R).
We wish everyone a great weekend! Sunday is Oui Oui's & Mica Minnie Moo's Gotcha Day, so stop on by! We are having a Comment-A-Thon here and a Post-A-Thon at the Tabby Cat Club to benefit PAWS, the shelter featured in Animal Shelter Volunteer Life with Moosey, Gracie, Zoe, meowmeowmans and Tracey.
