Blueberry is such a dear. Her mouth has a slightly different shape now that she is missing most of her teeth. I took her and four siblings from a location in Lebanon, from the yard of a house, now the feature of several paper articles about tenants suffering under a husband and wife slumlord pair, who own multiple slums in this area. The tenants there at the house tried to get repairs for really terrible problems, like leaks that caused ceiling material to fall into the shower/tub, to name one. They were evicted, probably in retaliation for daring to challenge the red door slumlords of the valley. In my opinion, the house needs bulldozed and did then, when I collected Blueberry and her siblings there. Oregon has virtually no protections for tenants and tenants can be evicted without reason at any time.
Haley and Alexi. Alexi is quite needy and loves her mom (or aunt) not sure which, Haley. Because the space is small, Haley sometimes gets a little grouchy with Alexi.
It is hard to believe, Nemo, above, is Starry's brother, but it is true. I caught both, along with a third sibling, Peko, long since adopted out, in N. Albany, when they were teenagers. All were sick with giardia. Nemo went to a home, was gone two months before they returned him. After which he was not the same cat. It took him a year to come into the house from the cat yard after that very bad adoption and he still won't let me hold him. He used to be in my arms constantly, like Starry still is. She is a torti.
