Last week I had six extras, the three Albany colony girl kittens, plus 3 from Waterloo park. Five of those six are gone, 3 went to Felines First Rescue, who already adopted out Simon and Susie. I think Darkly is still awaiting a home. The black sisters from the Albany colony, Rum and Jamaica, went to the grand daughter of the colony caretaker.
So I was left with Arizona, as an extra here. She's now tame, minus her sisters. That happens a lot.
Not sure how she'd react to strangers, but Heartland didn't have to knock her out with anesthesia to take blood for an FIV/Felk test and microchip yesterday. That's a good sign. She got that while Zoey, the tame relinquished torti from the complex, was spayed.
Zoey's wild sister, fixed yesterday at Willamette Humane, turns out to not be wild. Last night I brought her into the bathroom, to apply eye meds, since she has a mild URI, and she started rolling around to be petted. I thought it was "anesthesia drunk" that made her behave that way, but this morning, same thing. So she is loose in the bathroom with her sis now. I knew I hadn't missed a kitten last June when I trapped there. I figure she was also grabbed by tenants and given to another tenant who then turned her out.
I have 3 lovely girls, all fixed, vaccinated and two have been tested, ready for homes. Want a kitty? Choose two or take all three!!!

Size doesn't matter.
I heart Galaxy!
Maybe because he looks so much Slinko.
I really love the parrot lady. Her parrot rides around with her in her car and sleeps with her. I got a lot of cats fixed in her neighborhood and she is so gracious and thankful. She watches out for the area cats too, gets them in for shots, flea treats them if the owners can't afford it, a very lovely neighbor to have.
So I called the Parrot lady and had a nice chat. Of course, and I figured it probably was so, before I even called, she had lured the orange boy in, and despite her age, maybe mid 70's, wrangled him into a carrier and carted him off to be fixed and have shots. Now she says he is the biggest sweetest baby ever.
Check that orange boy off my "need to be fixed" list! Thanks to the Parrot Lady and her big heart.
