Hello everyone, I hope you had a mighty fine weekend, we did, but it was sure a busy one. You might remember that, besides wee Rocky, we had four kittens that ended up hanging out with Zelda. If you missed the beginning of the story you can read it HERE. Our new friend Julie is a pretty cool kitten catcher.
Anyways, there were four kittens and two were trapped and went to foster care. That meant there were two remaining. They were pretty spooked from the first trapping session but Julie was determined to get them to safety. The big problem was that they were hiding under the covered riding law mower.
So, since we couldn’t move the mower, something was needed so that when the mower cover was removed they couldn’t dash away into the trees or woods. Julie put her thinking cap on and decided we needed a wall around the mower. Seriously, a wall? Yes, a wall, made of cardboard. Sometimes a kitten catcher has to do what a kitten catcher has to do!
The wall was just high enough that the kittens couldn’t jump over it when the cover was removed from the mower. With the wall in place, as soon as Ann arrived to help Julie the rescue operation began. By the way, Ann was Sister Gracies foster Mom when we adopted Gracie.
It was time to remove the cover, slowly. The kittens were hiding in the engine compartment. Julie grabbed one up and Dad got it in a carrier. Julie went for the second kitten, it ran under the mower and tried to get over the wall, but it couldn’t. Ann got that one and Julie got it in a carrier. Operation Mower Wall had concluded.
Oh, just when we thought the Kitten Chronicles had concluded, we heard another meow noise coming from the big bush by the riding mower. Seriously, we did here it, and it was loud.
Dang, back to the drawing board. The only problem is that I don’t have a drawing board. This one is pretty scared and we don’t think it is from the same litter as the others. Also, it doesn’t seem to like Zelda, at least not yet, so she can’t care for it. It appears that the chronicles continue.
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
