Hello everyone! I kind of hinted about this on Monday, but we’ve had a wee bit of a feral mystery going on around here. Most of you know, we take care of about 16 ferals, many of which have been around for a while. Of that group, we’ve managed to TNR 10 of them, the others being darn elusive. Our Mom kitty had two more kittens and they are growing fast and really don’t look like kittens any more. Mom’s kitten Zelda, from her litter of two last year, recently had two kittens and they are still small. Mom and Zelda have continuously avoided the traps.
Anyways back to the mystery. Dad puts out a big bowl of dry food every morning. Then in the evenings the group gets two big bowls of wet food at 6 and 7PM. This is usually what the feeding station looks like at the 6PM feeding.
They come in shifts, first one group and then another. Once they finish off the wet food Dad gives them a second serving so that everyone gets a chance to eat. Usually both servings are completely gone.
Oh, Mom Kitty and her two (Speedy and Forrest) were still here as was Zelda and her two kittens, but the others, nope.
Yep the ferals were gone, nowhere to be seen, nowhere to be found. Our super regulars JR, Hank and Nichols were no shows too. I actually thought I would be writing a post about their disappearance and how sad we were that they were gone.
Then, last Friday evening Mom peeked out back at the feeding station and yelled to Dad, “they’re back”, and indeed they were. As near as we could tell, most were back, including JR, Hank and Nicholas.
We have no idea where they were and as near as we can determine there isn’t anyone else feeding them. So, it’s a mystery. But we are so very thankful to see them back, especially at feeding time. We’ve all grown quite fond of them all.
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
