WELL; HELLO THERE .....

Little Blackie here is one of several outside "barn" cats that live at The House of Rabbits. Several years a go a feral cat had a litter near us. Eventually she brought them near our house and we managed to trap all of them and take them to be spayed and neutered - even the mother! Now the mother and two of the kids, Blackie and a gray one, still live around most of the time. They do roam quite a bit, there being several places nearby known for good handouts! The father, Uncle Buck, also comes around some, but we have never been able to catch him. Blackie will almost, but not quite, let me pet him/her!

Surprise ... Princess did neither of Chew or Poo! (She went into her pen and ate fresh oats!) And she thanks you all for the votes, suggestions and interest. I can't say I felt any of you had me particularly in your thoughts!

Tomorrow will most certainly have more time and we will do our best to get all caught up.

Aww he looks just like a cat I used to have, a long time ago, we called him Mister - he was very sweet, a housecat. It's so great that you have put the time in to help these feral cats and get them fixed as well!

Wow, Niblet doesn't usually mess with shoes, and he definitely never chooses "poo" -- he will chew on a shirt or blue jeans. He can rip and tear a hole in cloth in about .000335698569 seconds!

Little Blackie looks like my departed Little Olive. What's so bad about a little rabbit poo on a shoe? Oats are always better! Tyler likes to maim zippers, he can ruin one before you can say "bad rabbit".

Hi sweet little kitty!

We have a ginger cat who visits us every so often. It obviously lives nearby and obviously eats quite well, but it likes to come in the house, wander around, and then leave.

Deb ... I prefer those kind!!! Maxine, our main outdoor kitty does that.
