Snipping a Budding Cat Colony: Part One

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I told you on my last blog post that I had a Monday Meowsie News story coming about Katie the Cat who is looking for her permanent home.

Hi! I am Katie the Cat

Truth be known, Katie was actually the beginning of what could have become a fast-growing community cat colony. But, thanks to Dad P’s quick thinking and Community Concern 4 Cats fast acting, that colony is no longer gonna happen.

I do like my inside and outside opportunities. A gal needs her fresh air

Thankfully, Katie’s original family had the good sense to have her spayed before they moved away and left her to fend for herself. Lucky for Katie she found some really kind and caring humans who offered her food and a safe, dry and warm place to live in their garden. She prefers to be able to come and go as she pleases, but I suspect if she were an only kitty, she would simply adore being with her forever human most.  Just my feline opinion, ya know?

Now about the cat colony that almost was! You see because Katie was being fed outside, another couple of young kitties showed up to dine with her. They were a young brother and sister from a litter the humans knew had been born in someone else’s yard. Neither had been spayed or neutered so you can guess what happened, right? (do be sure to hover over the photos to view the captions to learn who is who)

Yep! Piper and her brother mated. This incest mating caused Piper to deliver six kittens in her caretakers’ bedroom closet! Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, three of those kittens were so malformed, without limbs or overly large and whatnot, that they were stillborn. Three kittens survived.

Piper is a great Mom Cat and the human caretakers made sure she and the kittens got lots of food and water and dry safe places to sleep outside. Piper even enjoys being inside and lounging on her male human’s lap!

Long story short—enter Dad P going around our town home complex to let our new neighbors know he was running for our Home Owners Association, Board of Directors.

He met the kitties’ caretakers and noticed all the cats and asked “are these your cats?”. The answer was—“well, not really. We just started feeding them.”

And there was the budding cat colony! So Dad P let Mom L know where the cats were and they both went to talk with the caretakers to learn what we could do to help.

Bottom line is—in less than ten days, Mom L had Mom Cat Piper and her four kittens, all four months old, set up with appointments at CC4C’s new Cat Clinic for spay/neuter, Vet checks, vaccinations, FeLV testing (negative all)!! (more about this wondrous new clinic in another post…don’t miss it!).

Sweet Jessie also had a hernia and CC4C took care of that as well.

Now about darling Katie. Mom L and her caretaker Miss Tonya took Katie to the clinic for a checkup and vaccinations and testing for FeLV when they went to collect all the spay/neuters.  Katie is now all set to go up for adoption too!

Can you see my opposite orange and black furs?

All cats are now recovered and ready for adoption!!

Please, please SHARE SHARE SHARE this blog post to help all of these now “NOT a budding cat colony” cats find their permanent loving homes?

Last but never least! Check back for Part Two of “Snipping a Budding Cat Colony” on my Monday, October 9 blog post. Learn what was the REAL driver to helping this “almost a cat colony” start.

Ssqueee Cat Photo Reader Captions

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Thank you to my two readers who joined in the fun of my latest “Caption Game” using my “squeee cats” from Mom L’s Kitchen Cat Clinic offered each week by Community Concern 4 Cats for fosters and their cats.

I invited my readers to provide captions for one or all of the photos. Only two readers joined but nonetheless, their captions were right on target!! Thank you my BFGF Stunning Keisha and Momma Kat and Bear Cat for your participation.

Photo Two

Hey, you're twistin' my neck!

Stunning Keisha: Yeah, I do have his markings. We’re both tabbies

Photo Three

Don't make me smacky paw you!

Stunning Keisha: You can check my fingerprints if you don’t believe me.

Photo Four

Arrgghh! Stop that nonsense. Remember my paw!

Stunning Keisha: Apparently they don’t believe me and have to look for DNA or something.

Momma Kat and Bear Cat: No one said anything about a NEEDLE?!!?!

I was hoping this might be more fun that my Meme Friday which took a bit longer to become a failed effort,  but I guess not. Back to the drawing board. I sure do appreciate the readers who participated in both of my failed attempts to come up with something fun/funny for a weekly participation blog post. If you have any ideas you want me to try, please leave your suggestions in my comments.

Back Again! Get Your Squee for the Day

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!

My readers had such a fun time making up captions for my last “Get Your Squee Going” . I am again asking you to select one or more of three kitties and create captions for there photos.  These are kitties who were patients at the Cat Kitchen Clinic for Community Concern 4 Cats. Mom L volunteers to help with the clinic set up, record keeping and prepping the syringes for blood draw to do a SNAP test for FeLV.

One kitty has four photos, the other two only have one photo each but their looks certainly speak a whole bunch of words! I bet’cha you guys can come up with some really great captions. I will be sharing the captions on my Monday blog post, February 13.

Remember, your task is to set a caption to each photo that tells what you think the cat was thinkin’ when he/she was at the clinic.

Come on, tell me what you think these kitties are thinking in each photo. The brown male tabby has a series so you can make up a really great story for what he was thinking about his clinic visit.

Be sure to tell me in comments what photo number each of your captions goes to. Thanks for joining in the “caption game” here on Savannah’s Paw Tracks!
