I waited til Wednesday to trap two Sweet Home situations. Just tired out I guess. I thought the one at the lone house across the tracks along the highway would be easy. It wasn't. Seems the cats really do only show up to eat at 5:30 a.m. I got there at 9:00 a.m. Not a cat to be seen. I came back way later and caught only four of the six. Nice old guy feeds them. He's funny.
They were a big boy and 3 of the 4 teens. I didn't catch one teen and worse, I didn't catch mom cat.
|This guy was huge, and very happy to get back home today.|
|This gray tux boy was one of the teens.|
|This sweet black tux teen was also fixed yesterday.|
|The gray tux again.|
|The only girl of the four I caught there so far, and looks Siamese! Just a teen and fixed yesterday.|
|Garage calico, fixed yesterday.|
|Black tux boy, and a sweetie.|
|Mom of all, a darling calico|
|The teen calico again|
|Tabby on white boy. They had named him Lily. Whether they rename him now knowing he's a boy, I bet they don't. Lily fits him anyway.|
Well, I had luck and did catch the muted torti mom! She got fixed too yesterday. Except I got bad news. She was lactating. When I heard, I wanted to scream out "Nooooo" so loud it would be like one of those commercials where someone screams and the camera shot breaks to canyons, where you hear the scream echo, then out on the ocean and you hear it there too......
I was waiting at the county park hopeful after catching the mom cat that her teen daughter would show. Instead, this guy showed up....
|Goliath, king of the table|
|Goliath is fixed now too|
|This is Autumn, the lactating muted torti, but now she is fixed.|
And we trapped them....
They are up at Julies. Dodged a bullet there. Seemed to be only the three but who knows.
I was about to leave finally, finally come home to sleep, which I need, when this guy dares march out of the brush unfixed....
Guess where he is now. In a trap in my garage. Neuter date: Monday, buddy.
I spotted Tokyo, who is long fixed.....
And decided to name the gray boy Moscow. Getting geographic with names.
So, now, finally, I'm going to bed.
