Well almost 3 weeks ago I found a momma cat and her kittens. They were born within 12 hours of me discovering them. Momma has nursed 4 healthy and beautiful kittens. It has been a joy to watch them grow up, knowing had I not found them they may had died like their 1 sibling, which is so sad, I think momma laid on it where she had them and just couldn't position herself to avoid it. But we must go on for the sake of the ones living. She had 2 black and white, 1 blue and white and 1 cream and white. They are all fluffy right now, but I am thinking they will all be short haired like Momma. The babies started walking about on their own really well yesterday, came out and one was making it across the floor..lol I love them at this age, just learning to get around, so cute. I will be posting photos of these guys soon.
I sit here with a cat on my chest, as frustrating as it is, I still enjoy the nuisance she is. She is an adoption cat, one I can't decide to truly adopt out because of her attitude, she is awesome (most cats are...lol). I love this girl and she loves me. She would need to have someone that is willing to put up with her wanting to be under the covers, wanting to sit on you when you are on the computer, and one that sits and waits for you to come back to your spot. I wonder, will I find that in another family? I always am frightened they will end up in the wrong hands, that is why I am so strict on the adoption policy, to the point people refuse to adopt from me, but I feel if we have an open adoption it will ease my mind and I will know they will be in the right home. So many of these guys I have had since birth, or taken from a bad situation, taught them to trust again and I don't want them to fear living, so I have to be the way I am.
I wish everyday they would get adopted, that way I can take in more strays or help families in need. Right now we are just so small and need to rebuild their kennel, the old one just will not work anymore. I sometimes wonder if I have bitten off more than I can chew, but then I look at their faces and know, most likely if they weren't here, under foot, they would be dead in a shelter or on the streets, or producing more litters that will ultimately get destroyed in one fashion or another.
I am a mother, a wife and a mom to many animals. I had a career in animal care as a veterinary technician. I loved my job, loved assisting in surgery, doing dentals, blood work, etc. However, due to an unrelated event I am now disabled and cannot work outside the home. I decided since I have found so many stray cats that something needed to be done and opened Frisky Felines. My goal is to see that no cat goes hungry, suffers from hypothermia, heat exhaustion, as well as abuse.
