New Little Angels
Hello everyone.It's me, Jan Plant, been awhile I know. Wanted to bring everyone up to speed and share some bittersweet happiness with all my wonderful friends here. The "Wild Bunch" ferals who found homes on the farms are all doing wonderfully and adapting well, which left me down to three.
Well, my friends, it seems the vacancies have been filled. Naturally this time of year we have a lot of dumps in my area. We got three VERY pregnant females. "Stranger" the GIANT feral tom is still evading trapping. We did manage to get him trapped for fixing, but he is still mean as a snake and we're attempting to move him to a farm.
But our three mamas, well... two days ago I heard some pitiful sounds coming from their "livingroom" on our deck. Went and peeked and sure enough, mama one was in labor. Well, these are photos of the first three born here, on my deck. Sorry they aren't very good, she was not happy me sneaking them! LOL! "Tiny mama" had hers, I assume a few hours later in the back yard in an old dead log.
Only got a glimpse today as she is severely upset if you even get close. But I did count three tiny heads. I've been placing wet food and fresh water out back close for her so as she doesn't have to come all the way out front if hungry. Still feeding them dry but figure the extra wet food will help their milk.
These babies are so tiny and I am just so happy they all seem healthy. We all know the joy of seeing new life and mamas with their young. Just so sad to know that these tiny babies are without forever homes and some callous human tossed their mothers away like so much "yesterdays rubbish".
Oh, well.H...! ya'll know that they won't go with out here and I've notified the vet...again...One thing you can guarantee; these babies will not be having babies of their own! I hate to deny anything motherhood but we do have to look at this realistically (and John is not really up to me starting my own "Cat House" - LOL).
I just had to share these photos and share my happiness with all of my friends, old and new. Right now I'm calling them Larry, Curlie and Mo, till we can actually get a better look.
Michael, thank you once again sir for your generous donation! Babies say thank you also.
XXXXXXXXX Jan and the NEW "Wild Bunch"
