Kitten and Cat Photos

Buddha, who is quite beautiful.
Wake up, Micro!

Micro relaxes.
Micro and Louie, from the homeless camps, wrestle. Louie is spoken for, but his new owners won't be picking him, and Isis the Siamese mix girl from Lyons street, up until tomorrow.
Micro and Louie go at it!
Lucy takes a moment to examine her paw, which is beautiful and she knows this. Satisfied, she returns to attacking her sister.Micro and Lucy do sister battle.
Calamity is smart, sleek and wonderful.
Calamity, from a cul de sac on the outskirts of Albany. Unwanted, like her sister and mom, who was abandoned.

Isis, Calamity's sister, who is spoken for.

Below are photos of the four cats I took in yesterday. Two came from S. Corvallis. The woman said they were strays she took in, each with kittens. 11 kittens in all. She is low income and moving on Sunday. But she is trying to find homes for the kittens before Sunday and is taking the two adult cats with her. They're now fixed!

S. Corvallis calico, spayed yesterday.

The other two cats were from that Lebanon situation. The sister of the owner was, by the time she contacted me, feeding the three cats. Her sister got them off craigslist, which should be a great big warning to people giving away cats without doing any checking on craigslist. The woman might have been well intentioned, but she doesn't even take care of her kids, and was not feeding these cats. She then told her sister if they weren't out of her place, she'd shoot them! Her sister contacted me, hoping for help finding them a safe place and getting them fixed. Turns out the male was already fixed and the calico had a massive tumor and had to be euthanized. As for the kitten, a neighbor is taking her in.
This is the male, who was already neutered.
The doomed calico, gotten by the Lebanon woman off craigslist from someone who didn't want her. But she didn't really want her either, never got her fixed, never fed her. The cat had many litters and yesterday died. She had a massive ovarian tumor.

I don't know if Blackjack is going to make it at his new home. Wonderful couple! They have one cat who hates kittens and a small dog. She says Blackjack cries all night. She thinks it is a health issue, but I keep telling her he is used to having tons of friendly cats around. He's lonely. She is going to take him in for a checkup. But adopting one kitten means you're going to have a lonely kitten, unless you have other kitten friendly cats already. Most single adult females do not take well to a kitten addition to the household.

He did not cry here. But, maybe he has developed a health issue. He played wildly all day with his brothers, then slept all night. That's what he did here. And I wish Miss Daisy would play all day and not sleep all day and race around very very loudly at night.

It is hard to convince people that a kitten needs another kitten for companionship or that one kitten will be terribly lonely and grow up dysfunctional. But it's true.
