Before and After Cuteness

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Just a short post today to share some much needed joy and fun with Mom L’s CC4C (Community Concern For Cats) Kitchen Clinic experiences in kitten season. If you haven’t followed my blog for long, let me tell you just a teeny bit about the CC4C Kitchen Clinic. It is literally held at Miss Gemma’s kitchen. She is the President for CC4C. Mom L and Miss Gemma’s long time friend and Doc of Vet Medicine, Doc Josie, is their presiding DVM. Doc Josie was my purrsonal feline specialist DVM for many years until she retired. She donated her time and skills to these pawsome clinics.

This litter of 4 kittens arrived a bit too small for all the tests, vaccinations that they do at this little clinic. But Doc Josie and Mom L had a great time trying to get these 4 to cooperate in a photo shoot of a “kitten pile”. MOL!!! They were all under two pounds so not so big!

Don’t you dare touch my furr sibs!!!

About a month later, this crew showed up again. And guess who was making sure all of the humans knew SHE was the new Sheriff at Kitchen Clinic???

I am the new Kitchen Clinic Sheriff and you shall not pass me!!!

Give me a shout out in comments what’cha think about this cute Kitten Mob!!

Artistic Foster Kitten Pipsqueak

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Turns out my newbie foster kitten, Pipsqueak aka Pip, has some artist talent in him. Who knew a street cat could be so creative??!!

Mom L turned Pip and his sidekick Katie loose on her iPad and their efforts and team work created a very stunning piece of art. But, I’ll leave it to my readers’ judgment about whether or not it’s as pawsome as I think.

Pip’s interest in art showed up when he tried to help Mom L get the photos properly edited for me to write my Friday Memes for Friday Smiles. I must say that he selected his edits with care and taste for making the photo look natural.

His next opportunity came when he got access to the iPad. It started out with a blank slate, just that stoopy schmousie that runs all over the screen eeekking and wiggling its tail. You know the game I mean, right?

Pip asked Katie to take a look and assist him in getting things started. You see Pip was a bit shy at first to start paw whapping that schmousie, but foster sisfur Katie had no problem giving it a few whacks to show Pip how it’s done.

Katie then backed off and did some coaching while Pip tried it out.

Now he was on a roll!! He got down up close and purrsonal with that schmousie and all the colors created whenever Pip whapped him one.

Pip stopped to admire his art work and to consider just how he wanted to complete it.

APAWS   APAWS!!!!

Pip’s final art piece revealed!!

If you have created your own artwork, please share in comments!! I’d luvluvluv seeing what my pals are creating!

Cat Colony Nipped!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I know I have mentioned our new foster kitten, Pipsqueak aka Pip (to family and furriends) and how he came to be with us.  He was one of the first of seven kittens that we trapped for TNR. As you know from my post, he is no way “feral” and now ready for adoption.

That said, Mom L and Dad P and I have been relentless in helping residents in our city with making sure this “little” colony of eleven cats/kittens doesn’t get any bigger!!

Check out this darling little family, relaxing in the backyard of the resident who had been so diligent and accommodating in helping us TNR as many as we can.

We had our work cut out for us. We originally found four residents who were feeding this cute little GROWING family. All have been on board in helping us trap over the last seven weeks.

And we have success!! So far no pregnant females. We have TNR’d three adult males, and three kitten males and one female kitten. We have socialized one male kitten, our sweet new foster kitten Pipsqueak, now ready for his forever home and adoption!

Here are the kitties we have helped to control this growing cat colony. Our greatest challenge is trapping and spaying the mom cat, we have named Marmee. She is very trap savvy.

First up is Bruiser! No on told us about this big “bad boy” until he became the one and only we trapped in our first night trapping. Totally awesome, handsome mancat; not longer able to produce kittens!!

Bruiser’s release

Next up: Rocky kitten who was very vocal in his protest at being trapped!!

Rocky release

Next up, dear sweet Uncle George, Marmee’s kitten from last year.

George’s release

Then we trapped Kong!! Marmee’s son from last year! What a big guy!!

Kong’s release

We trapped Ringo same night we caught Kong. You can see he has the same trap injury to his sweet nose. Sadly that happens sometimes and our darling foster Pipsqueak is only just able to start regrowing his furrs from a similar injury.

Ringo release

Our last kitten trapped was a girl!! Darling Ellie, named by the family’s son where they all hang out. She was simply too old at this point to socialize. Sadly we had to release her just today.

Ellie’s release

We hope to trap two more this week. Marmee, the mom cat, may be ongoing challenge so wish us good fortune!!

Let us know in comments how you manage your challenges in trapping a very trap savvy kitty!!

Pee Ess…please share our foster Pipsqueak to help us help him find his forever home. I would appreciate it it you will grab the badge below and SHARE SHARE SHARE all over the world to help bring Pip the pawsitive energy he will need to find his forever home. We have treated his right eye for the infection but it is taking a while to fully recover. He has no loss of sight in that eye, but we know it shows as less bright than his left eye. We fear no one will want this sweetie as he is “less than” purrfect. Please, please help us help him find his forever home. More about Pip later.
