Cat Grass Day 2016

Cat Grass Day 2016

I ordered a bag of cat grass seed mix and started it in a clay pot on my back porch. As usual, time flew by and the grass was on it’s very last days of ripeness, so i spread a sheet on the living room floor and brought it in for the cats. At first […]


The Circle of Street Life

I finally got the okay from Operation Catnip for a mid-clinic nipping, so I set out to trap mamma Nose and her babies on Sunday night. I trapped her almost immediately. None of the babies. Even now. She did great and got nipped yesterday. She was so quiet and calm except for a few frantic, […]

Jett, Day 8

Now over a week with us and Jett is finally starting to act like a more normal cat. He discovered the cat tent on the table next to where I work and he’s been cozy in there for two days. I also discovered that an animal lover picked him up from the post office in […]

Jett, Day 6

It’s almost been a week and Jett is much more relaxed around the herd of cats. He still gets alone time in the office at night, but he spends his days mingling with the serfs. His fur is growing back in places and he feels bristly. We got a pill stick and the right allergy […]

Nose Baby Sightings 5-10-16

Oh Nose! They’re Here!

I saw Nose return to the colony on April 9th, 2016, and she looked like she had recently given birth. But today she brought her babies to eat during daylight, so I got a chance to see they were real. It looks like five babies. Three black, one grey,and one grey and white.

Jett, Day 2, 5-7-16

Jett, Day 2

On our first Saturday together, we took Jett to the vet for what was his first actual visit beyond his trip to Operation Catnip several years before. Even though he had a clear skin issue, his previous humans didn’t take him to the vet to have it diagnosed. Based on what his previous family told […]

Jett, Day 1, 5-6-16

Jett, Day 1

Jett is a special case. We took him in from a family member who couldn’t care for him anymore. Poor Jett was in a tragic condition from some kind of allergy compounded by stress-grooming. Easily 60% of his body was bare, angry skin. And there were open sores all over him. You better believe we […]

The Heartbreak of Loving Them

We have had a rough time lately around the house of cats. First we lost three colony cats to neighborhood dogs. Then The Littles’ mom, Magnolia, got hit by a car and died in my hands. Then our very senior cat, Chloe, passed away quite quickly of old age. Little Rex became ill, went blind, […]

He came to us completely unable to see, and terrified of humans, but within a week he became a happy, outgoing little dude.
