KATA had been called about a pregnant cat. She told me the cat was at 303, but had not chance to go catch her. I was worried more kittens would be born under a trailer so I went up and set traps at 303 and was dismayed to find the trailer empty. I'd gotten a lot of cats out of that trailer that they had relinquished including lots of kittens, a couple adults and four teens. But they wanted back the adult gray female and an adult gray male. I loved that gray female.
To see the trailer empty put a rush of sorrow through me.
I went to talk to a neighbor who said they were arrested. And someone came and cleaned out the trailer.
I was sad!
But KATA showed up later and called the man who called them about the pregnant cat. Turns out it was three trailers down. And there too, sat the gray female, formerly of 303. We put her in a carrier while I set the trap for the pregnant cat. Wasn't two minutes before she ran around from behind the trailer, up to the porch and was in my trap. Vicki called the man again, who was away, and asked about the gray female, if we could take her, because I would have. No, his son was going to keep her. We let her back out and I took the pregnant girl home.
She was extremely pregnant! Feral Cat Awareness Team said they'd take her. I said "When?" They said "How about today?" We met in Eugene an hour and 15 minutes later. She's down with them now, capable hands.
|She won't have kittens under a trailer now.|
I call him Rowdy.
This morning I went back up to Mountain Shadows. Around one trailer, there have been a load of big males. My goodness. I caught two of them. One of them is a known, lost when young from a trailer. The woman sent me his photo, but he's kind of a big wild boy now. I've asked her if she'll take him back, take care of him again, but I don't know if she will.
|His name is Atticus|
Then I caught one of the two big orange tabby males hanging out. Wish I could have caught the other one too.
I saw more familiar faces.
|Both these White Boys are fixed.|
|This Orange Tabby Isn't fixed|
|This one is fixed and sporting a collar and ID! And check out that ear tip!|
|Bye my blessed Rum|
|Bye sweet Jamaica!|
