Hey all!! Haven't posted anything in a while, though I have been peeking in from time to time. Limyer still looks in everyday and is constantly on me to post more pics.
Anyway, The Herd is alive and thriving. Dandy
showed up today after me not having seen him for 3 days (doesn't mean he wasn't coming home, just not while I was around). My schedule changed from AM to PM a couple of weeks ago, and we'll go to nights next week. Burnie
has been staying out nights since it's warmer, but usually comes to spend the day inside. Powder
stays out during the day, but the sun hurts his eyes (they're blue) and he usually spends the day in the pines next door. Domino
is Domino....she's been pretty good lately, but did have a short period of being aggressive to some of the older ones. Someone bit her on the butt for it. Sundae
is her usual laid-back self as is Moo-Moo
comes and goes just like the clouds in the sky. I definitely don't get too concerned if I don't see her for a few days. Squirrel
is the resident security cat and makes sure that all newcomers pass her "gut check" before being allowed on the property. Pytu
are doing great, though Bear fancies himself one of the "big boys" and he tends to get a bit rambunctious in his play. Silke
are growing like weeds. I think Smooth got into the growfast stuff.....he's huge!!! He's already as big as Powder at only, what, 5 months? Both are really laid-back cats too. Claire
seems to get prettier by the day. She is still just as sweet as the day Limyer brought her home for me Belle
is growing and playing and still doesn't make much of a sound when she opens her mouth
She's got to get spayed soon.
Now the Outsiders:
has not been caught yet, but he's here every day and plays with all of the residents. CrackerJack
(our first TNR) started coming back around about a week ago. He's back to letting me touch him and he's lost his aggressive behavior. He can spend time around the others without getting so much as a second look. Honeybee
had to be let go after two weeks in the house. He was just not happy inside. I was reluctant to let him outside due to his haircut and cool temps at night, but it's been warm since his release. He lives in the garage and plays with Belle outside and is making progress with a few of the other little ones. Bob
, the older feral, still comes around from time to time. We have one new one outside now. We call it Mini-Me
because it looks just like Meeko. I swear either Meeko is it's dad, or they have the same parents. I think Belle is it's littermate. There is just too much resemblence.
I'm going to try trapping again after Limyer comes back from school next week (yaaayyyy!!)
I hope that's everyone.....I'll have to check my sig to make sure I didn't forget any of the Herd.
