Older cousins cuddle with and look after younger ones outside the well-house out here. One stray cat, now “Peanut Butter Sweet” successfully raised one calico daughter. Then before we even realized they were “plural”, Peanut had a lovely litter of tabbies, and a month later, her daughter presented us with a show-case litter of 3 patched calicos, one orange male (Barnie) and 3 little tuxedo children. All wild as hyenas. They’re taming up by watching Peanut obviously enjoy being petted and talked to. Tonight I fed most of the cousins by hand and said each one’s name as I handed him / her a bite. But my vet bill is going to be as big as a mortgage!
The is an outfit here that will pay half for me, and most local vets will take payments. So my main joy is in taming them and spending time with them.
50 THINGS: Almost 50 paws in the pile… (48 paws.) Over 50 whiskers, though!
COMPACT CAMERA: CASIO, EXILIM 7.2 mp
CONTRASTING PERCEPTIONS: Orange baby stands out!
RESCUE: Well, their mom / grandma is a rescue… does that count for the children we’re saving and keeping, do you think?
