Mob, Colony, Glaring, Clowder.....what ever you call them there are many of them. lol
I call them my mob!
I have at this writing 11 semi-feral cats living in a small garage. Actually there are 10 and one is on his way to the Vet.
I will start at the beginning. Please bear with me.
A little more than a week ago I was looking on Craigslist here in Central IL for a cat for my dog. He loves kittens and cats and I thought it would be good company for him.
I ran across an ad that had a picture of many cats stretched out on a bed and the ad said something like, "Need to find a new home for my cats, and one Special Needs cat". That's it. I then thought of my brother who is my Pastor. Our church bought a huge 12 acre farm with many out buildings, barns and all and need some cats to keep down the mouse and rabbit problems so I called him and he said sure get the cats.
So I talked to the craigslist guy and he said there were 12 of them. My brother said I could take 6. I knew we couldn't split them all up but I agreed to the 6. I took them all! All 12. lol
He will never know as there are so many that look alike and he'll just be confused is all. hehehehe
So, 6 of them have been in the garage for a week and 4 of them just a few days. I will let them out soon so they can get adjusted better but I will leave the door open to the garage and feed them there for a few more days before I move them to one of the bigger barns where they will be safe and have plenty of room. They will be able to come and go as they please.
There is an intact male who has an injured leg, he is with his ex caretaker right now as he was just caught last night. I will pick him up tomorrow night then on Thursday morning he goes to the vet to get fixed and have his leg looked at.
Sterile Feral is helping me with all of this. Answering all my many many questions and also with the Vet so it doesn't cost me so much. I am eternally grateful for their help!
I am reading everything I can here to gain more information and knowledge to care for these semi-feral babies. I'm so blessed to have found you and them.
Life would be so boring if we never took any adventures or went on any journeys!
I begin a new one now! Yipppeeee!
Almost forgot about number 12. She has yet to be captured and is roaming all alone out in the wilderness. Poor baby! Good thoughts and prayers for Golden Girl...thanks.
