Bj is doing well right now. He has been enjoying a room I re did as a dedicated cat room. All the kitties have been spending a lot of time in the room but BJ took time out today to spend with me.

We cuddled and he was really playful!

When he grabbed my glasses,

I thought he was still playing but.....

It turned out that he really wanted to look up some chowder recipes! :geekcat::lol:

Awwwww...and Banjo loves her daddy right back!

I was amazed at how involved feral toms are with their kittens. Once my little guys get up about 3 months old, it isn't unusual to see one of the two main toms here walking along with 6-8 kittens trailing along like ducklings. Out teaching them their business.

GOD I WANT TNR! But this town is SO resistant!

rubysmama rubysmama Yes, Bj is Daddy to Banjo and Whistle. Whistle spends a lot of time close to his Dad.

Whistle has also learned from his Dad to be very loving to all the other kitties. Especially the ladies!

He is generous with kisses and..

BJ is still protective of his son. I startled Whistle the other day and BJ came running. Who’s been scaring my boy?

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 They parents stay bonded if given the chance. I had to smile at the image of a Tom followed by a line of kittens! I had some little kitties I called ducklings here too. It’s something beautiful and adorable to see. TNR in your town would be great. I know it took two years to get a shift here. A letter writing campaign was a good start. Some of the National groups are willing to visit City Council members and representatives to explain why TNR is a huge advantage in every community. It does take chipping away at ignorance a bit at a time.

BJ was really feeling great today. His weight has been going back up and he actually started to play today. He has always been very affectionate but he has never really played before. My attempts with toys.....

What is that?

What do you want me to do with it?

If I kill it do I have to eat it?

That’s not a real bird.

Big ol' rough tuff feraly tomkitty is PLAYING! ~heart melts, soul does back-stroke through the puddle~
Me too! I’ve been waiting and trying to get him to feel this good. Play was a foreign thought to him. I guess now that he is feeling better, his children taught him!!:dancingblackcat:

Now that he's a healthier weight and more playful you know what that means don't you? Mom has to play more too, better get out your gym shoes. ;)
Gym shoes on! They keep me running anyway. :runningcat:Now if I can get him to play with something besides fingers and phone cords! :lol:

Bj has coughed again a few times lately but not as badly as before. I’m really wondering if it is more due to hairballs or some reaction to pollens. Back to watching him closely again but his weight is really good now and his fur is very silky feeling. It used to be fairly coarse in texture. He seems very content and has become very playful. I think he is enjoying his life with the other kitties. And the sofa!:lol:

Bj! Are you okay?

I’ve noticed that the attempt to get some weight on BJ has worked. Lol It May be time to level off a bit. More play time if he will just learn to chase a toy besides my glasses. ;)

No chasing toys. Just pets please!

That’s okay. It’s just from kitty kisses.

A treat might be nice though....
