The three freeway colony kittens are being fixed, tested, vaccinated and chipped today, over at Heartland Humane. It's a great deal they offer. Thank you to them and also to all those who contributed to the cost to get it done.
Their parents, both wild things, were fixed last week.
Which I feel is extremely important to the overall feline population. If you take the kittens, you've got to fix the adults.
To get this little group fixed makes me happy. I know its not much if you think of the larger problem or even compared to what other groups do. But it does make me happy. I can't help it.
The kittens will be heading to Portland at some point after Thanksgiving. More resources up there, more adoption groups, more money, more energy. Thank you to my friend, Keni.
Photos of the five:
|Winter, the black boy with the white chest spot who can be hard to photograph, especially with a failing camera. So I stylized a blurred photo of him.|
|And little Tonka, who is fast becoming Chubby. I think that will pass, once he realizes the food dish is always full.|
|Wild daddy, fixed and returned. Winter is his spitting image.|
|I finally covered the cage I made for Fat Oci, with chicken wire, to keep kittens in, and moved them into it last night, which immediately began to help with their socialization.|
|Wild mom. Tonka and Mystic look just like her, Tonka minus the orange. She was still lactating, still feeding them, but she didn't have much to give. Fixed and returned.|
