    Friday's misfit kitty of the day is Sabrina:

    This pretty little girl gave birth to some lovely kittens who were all adopted. She has since become very tame and seeks out pets. Sometimes I pick her up and she doesn't mind too much. I think she is gorgeous.

    I don’t know much about your circumstances, but can you make a catio for a couple of them? They are all so beautiful...I hope you are able to find homes for them all.

    No I live in a very small apartment. I don't have a patio or a balcony, so there is no place to build a catio. Thanks for the good thoughts, I agree they are all beautiful. :)

    Today's misfit cat of the day is Harry:

    This guy really is tame. He really wants a human to call his own. He does that thing where he tries to trip me, which is kind of annoying. Then when that doesn't work he lays down in front of me on his back. The poor guy just wants some love and attention. But there are so many kitties and I have so little time to give it to them. He needs a new name, I don't like Harry. I usually let the rescue lady who takes them to the vet name them. Can you give Harry a new name and a place to live where he won't be abused?

    Sunday's misfit cat of the day is Dinger!

    Dinger likes to give hugs, people hugs with his arms around my shoulders. I've never had a cat give me hugs like this before. Someone must have loved him at one time before he was abandoned. He seemed to be starving to death when I found. After treating him for worms, he has filled out, but he get a little crazy around food and swats the other cats away from it. He craves affection and jumps up on my lap for hug time. He wants to be loved and somewhere safe where people don't throw beer bottles at him.

    Monday's misfit kitty of the day is Misty:

    Misty is a little girl, kitten size, but full grown. She has had very rough life. Her sister was the first kitty I trapped here. Her sister was in such bad shape with mange, that she was loosing her eye sight and the vet put her down. It broke my heart. I was very afraid the same thing would happen to Misty, she had mange too. She seemed very feral and I struggled to catch her, she would not go into my trap. But finally I got her and she is mange free. She is tame now and the cutest personality. Sometimes I pick her up, she climbs up on my shoulder and looks around for a little bit. She gets along with all the other cats and is best buddies with Tom (the black kitty) and Sabrina (the calico).

    Tuesday's misfit kitty of the day is Becky!

    Becky is a cute little tuxedo kitty who was being fed by someone here, but they decided to stop taking care of her so she has joined my colony. She was shy at first but is getting braver and coming up to me. She is good buddies with Sabrina and Misty.

    Wednesday's misfit kitty of the day is Autumn!


    This little beauty comes up and rubs on my leg and begs for for food. She enjoys chin scratches. There was another girl kitty who looked like this one who may have been her sister. The sister cat was adopted after being treated for a broken ear drum she sustained from abuse. This little kitty deserves to be saved too.

    So many amazing kitties! Continuing to send positive thoughts for each to find a loving home & a person of their own. Until then may the care you provide substance them.

    Surprised by how much Reggie & Tom look so much like my boys!

    Hello Surya, I've only just joined, and am trying to figure my way around, but am not computer savvy. Please could you give an update on all you wonderful "misfits" (they're not!) kitties. I'm far away, in Massachusetts, but would like to know if there's any way I can help.

    I tried to send you a message, but am not allowed. They've stolen my heart, your pics and bios of them are heartwarming, and am fretting for their well-being in the ugly situation that they're in.

    Have a 13-cat family, almost all of them black, or black/white tuxies, and all longtime strays or ferals. Overlooked, or considered hard-to-adopt, and they are the best thing that's happened to me and hubby!

    @RubiH First let me Welcome you to Thecatsite! :welcomesign: I follow this thread too. I am sure that your response will be very welcomed here. I happen to know that help is always needed by people like you. @surya is trying very hard to save kitties. I think I can message her for you but she should see an alert on the post you wrote and get back to you. I’m very glad you found this thread!
    You are awesome for taking in your black and tux kitties! Everyone on the site would love to hear more from you about the ones you have taken in.

    Many of us have to learn our way around here. I am not computer savvy myself. Lol
    @rubysmama @Mamanyt1953 Could help you navigate here better than I can. You could even start a thread about your kitties that might encourage others to help black and tux kitties. I have three black kitties and one black and white that I have taken in. :bigeyes:
    :clapcat:
    If you need more help you can get someone’s attention by putting @ before their ID as I did above. That will send them an alert that you are requesting their attention.
    I’m looking forward to seeing more of you on the site.:wave3:

    Check your inbox @RubiH I let this thread go because I wasn't getting much interest. My hope was that someone would be able to save one of these kitties. I have more of them that are not pictured, but the one's I wrote about are the tamest ones. Becky the Tuxedo cat is gone. I don't know what happened to her, but it is likely she was run over. I have found many dead kitties by the street next to the complex. I miss you sweet friend.

    Hi maggie101,

    They have had a message on their website for a year or two that says: Sorry, but we cannot respond to requests to take animals at this time. I'll try to start a conversation. Check your inbox and see if you get it. Thanks.

    They may, however, be able to suggest alternatives...

    Thank you so much for your welcome message. It is most kind of you. I will certainly write more about myself, and my cat rescues, as well as other cat-related topics, that I hope will interest and benefit others. I am traveling from MA to CA on Saturday Feb 2, and will be settled in by Sunday, and hopefully will be able to spend some time understanding my way around, and write back too. Many thanks for making me feel so at home! Kind regards, Rubina

    Hello @surya, I'm so saddened to hear this awful news about Becky. This kind of life and ending that these kitties have tears my heart apart. I hope you will be able to connect with me sometime in the next few days. Hopefully we can have a chance to hear each other's voice and some stories too :)
