When I saw these kitties were getting fed rice, beans and tortilla's, I started feeding them. They live on my porch now. They are tame and adoptable, but it's impossible to get a rescue here to help right now without a foster or making a big donation. So I'm going to try and raise money to get them fixed. sigh.

Looong day! But, when are they ever short? :lol: It’s always active here. surya surya You do realize that once you have a sanctuary, a lot of your time goes into catching cats performing mischievous deeds? I had a lovely phone conversation today and I sat on the front porch to enjoy a rain shower as we talked. The cats must have taken my absence and the rain shower as an inspiration for another joke on Mom! They are really getting very proficient at playing tricks.
I came in and put the phone up. I went to get the clean laundry and put it in the dryer but......... I heard the sound of running water. The washing machine was finished. Hmmm. I could hear the water in the plumbing..... following the sound.... not the kitchen. No broken pipes. Nothing pouring outside. ????
I go towards the back of the house. Nothing in the middle of the house. Oh no! Went to the room with Wanda Heart and the girl crew. Bingo!
I was napping. Why?

Wanda Heart. Did you turn the water on? That’s never happened in here before.

Now why would you think it was me?

The evidence was clear. Lol The girl crew has accepted Wanda Heart as a part of their mini clowder.

I wonder if this was an initiation into the group or just a group activity! It looked to me like they were all having fun!
Here’s what I discovered.

See!

They aren’t hissing. They’re chasing my bird.

I can walk over to them and they don’t run!

She’s smelling me without swatting me!

They’re kissing! Tee hee!

Oh yeah. I did it! We’re all together! I fit right in.

Did you see that Mom?

I did see it Wanda Heart. You were in the middle of the whole group of girls!


Hey, Mom. Just so you know..... the kitten left all the wet footprints everywhere.
9CF2B6EB-79B2-497A-90BF-B79543DB97F6.jpeg

No... my paws aren’t wet. I just wanted to lick them.
4FEFFDA5-FFFC-4B4E-AB52-B44EB585E045.jpeg

I’m one of the clowder Mom! I’m a big girl.

:clap2: I see a kitten smile!
Acceptance by this group of older feral females is quite an accomplishment for a little girl.:) It looks like bringing Winnie the Pooh in as common ground and having the kitties play together helped them to enjoy each other’s company. Wanda Heart has a brave heart. I’m not surprised that they have blended together.

Just for the record, all the paws were wet! :flail: Except mine. :heartshape:
Have a great night everyone!

Uh-oh! Who's going to be an instigator? :lolup: It's wonderful that Wanda Heart has been accepted into the furmily! Yes, there's a lot of powerful spirit at Chez Catbird!

tarasgirl06 tarasgirl06 Thank goodness we do have power. I’d be in trouble without it! Lol It’s true that we cannot guess what is in store for us. Each new day is a new adventure. Especially around here! :hyper: A Dillo at the door, possum on the porch, raccoon rubbing my leg, cats on the couch, in the corner, in the cabinet....:lol:

Furballsmom Furballsmom Wanda Heart is a hoot! She has found her place and is ruling the world!

M maggiedemi :) Very good! I think she does have the heart of a lion!
I hate dealing with a well for water too but at least the water is good. I have to be careful how much I use too. It could be worse though. At least we don’t have to fetch it from the river! Have you ever had to bathe in a mountain stream? Brrrrr! :eek2: :lol:

rubysmama rubysmama :flail: Banjo said that too.

Of course, then BJ had an opinion .

Banjo was waiting for Froggie tonight and I started wondering.....what does everything look like from his vantage point? :kitty: I guess this is how the conversation must have gone.


Banjo!!!! Banjo!!!!!

I’m here Froggie!

Did you miss me Banjo?

Yes Froggie. Hold my paw.

Do you want a kitty kiss?

Sweet Banjo!

Dad is behind me Froggie.

You’re so lucky Froggie. If something bugs you, you can just eat it! Hahahaha.

Awwwwe!

I like the sound of a Froggie laugh!

I’m glad you came.

You have to leave now? Watch out for that Raccoon!

Goodnight Froggie! See you tomorrow!

;) I guess no matter which side of the glass you are on, love looks the same.

I am always moved by the look on Banjos face whenever that frog is around. The other frogs don’t attract her. Just Jeremiah. I’ve seen cats chase frogs and play with them as though prey but I don’t see any of the aggression or that excited look of the chase with Banjo. I really do wonder .....that frog should be running away from her. It’s a very special relationship between those two. The wonders and joys of nature.
The fairy tail endures. ( or is that furry tale?) :lol:
Have a wonderful night/morning everyone.

There's enough water for my daily shower, but not enough to do the sheets, cat towels, and blankets often enough. Maybe I can get to the laundromat when I'm better. I think we share our well with the neighbor and after 2 loads of laundry, it's practically empty. It probably costs too much to drill another one. :(:(:(

I’ve seen cats chase frogs and play with them as though prey but I don’t see any of the aggression or that excited look of the chase with Banjo.
Demi & Maggie are indoor only now after the incident with that cat, so Demi can't go out in the garage to kill frogs and other critters. I wonder how he will react if he ever sees one on a window? He won't be able to hurt it. :)
