A new kitty...



A new kitty was waiting to be fed this morning. This one is an older orange, long haired stripedy kitty. Meowm says this kitty has seen some hard years. This is the only orange kitty we have seen. Meowm says this one has a kitty cold and had some stuff on the furs on the head. She could tell if it was blood or something else. This one had no qualms about jumping down and getting food right after Meowm put it down and didn't even budge when Meowm went back with some water. The other kitties will usually back away a bit when Meowm puts out the water.

We also had a visit from the long haired gray striped kitty (not the same one who has been loudly meowing)last night. This one has been around a few times before and is another one who has seen hard times. Meowm put out a special bowl of food just for this kitty. This one seems kinda timid and doesn't usually butt in for its share of food. Then Meowm stood outside while this one gobbled down its own bowl of food, so that no other kitty would butt in and eat it all up.

While all of these kitties tug at Meowms heartstrings, these two have tugged harder. She says it is cause they are older and have been on their own for so long....and you can see sadness, loneliness and just not much of a sparkle in their eyes. I don't know how Meowm does this some days. I can tell her heart just hurts real bad sometimes, but she keeps doing it. We are really hoping for some warmer weather soon so these babies quit being so cold and so that Meowm can start trapping and getting them at least a little bit of help.

I think I will snuggle Meowm extra tonite.

Oh, I can understand how seeing the older ones would be very difficult. Poor kitties! I am glad your mom is looking out for them or their lives would be even harder.

You know, if you go get those foam coolers and cut an opening in the side, you can make little kitty shelters so the ferals can get out of the cold. You can put some old towels or some straw in there so they will have something to cuddle in. Tape the lids on so they don't come off in the wind.

My Bean gets the same way about the wilders, but we don't have to worry about the cold and the snow here in Florida.

That is so wonderful of your Meowm to feed the kitties with no homes. I hope it warms up soon.

Snuggles are good, Junior.

Junior, you have a wonderful mom! She is so kind and generous, feeding those poor stray kitties. We can understand why they tug on your mom's heartstrings. We hope that the weather warms up and that she can trap some of them. Your mom is an angel to these kitties!

It's very sad that kitties live like that. It's a good thing your Meowm is doing.

Your mom is doing something wonderful, but it is hard--especially when you know you can't solve all the problems. Purrs to her.

Your Mom is doing a wonderful thing by feeding the kitties with no homes. It would tug at my heartstrings, too. I hope the weather warms up soon, so she can get the poor kitties some help.

Older kitties always tug at Meowmy's heart strings too. I was her first and only kitten actually. Obviously Kaze was kind of a kitten but she was older- 6 months when she came to be with us and she was in need of a good home. Purr for your wonderful mom for taking care of them.

Junior, your mom is a sweet bean. She deserves an award of some sort. I'd give her one if I knew how and what to do. Oh well, the thoughts there. Spring will come soon. We don't have strays out here in the woods but that would be very hard.
