Black Pearl and Toby

Another yard stray but I think this one is owned across the street. I'm not sure, however. He's huge but I think neutered. Not sure on that either. The cat has been around since I've lived here and a neighbor pointed out the house where he supposedly belongs. Maybe I should not have taken that person's word as absolute. The cat is limping badly with a swollen left front foot.

The cat puts no weight on that left front leg and there is a noticeable swelling halfway up.
This is him.
He really never comes into my yard. Today was an exception.
Lebanon adult female, fixed yesterday.
Young adult torti, from Lebanon, fixed yesterday.
The Lebanon torti again.
Three orange kittens were abandoned in Albany, who fortunately were crying outside some kind folks' house, who put them in a camp trailer, since it is so brutally cold out. All three, two orange tabby boys and one orange tabby girl, were fixed yesterday.
The orange tabby little girl fixed yesterday.

Toby and his mom, Black Pearl, are spoken for, but still alone in the spare bedroom, and bored! Today I put harnesses on both, matching harnesses and will try to harness train them.


  1. it was so generous of that couple to take in the orange kittens esp. with such cold weather. and they are fixed now! I hope they can grow up warm and snuggly inside the trailer. and Pearl and Toby for sure look like they belong together forever.

  2. Such beautiful pictures of Black Pearl with Toby - precious mother son moments!

  3. Suddenly, yahoo is sending comments to spam before I even see them. I found a bunch in my spam folder at yahoo.

    Thank you Avery, they are two wonderful cats and leaving me the 21st, but to a good home.

  4. So thrilled they will get a home. My meezers g out on a harness. If you start early as kittens, they adjust very easily. I never let them outside unless I am with them. Too many dangerous people or items for cats in a city or anywhere! Sigh!

  5. I love the bright green harnesses!
