Mancat Monday: Three Down, Five to Go (feral update)

mancat monday brian 07052021

Hello everyone, I’m coming to you this Mancat Monday from the Sky Lounge, we’ll I’m at the upstairs overlook and it is a good lounging spot. We made it though the July 4th fireworks okay, but since we live in the South that means we only have about 27 more nights of fireworks, less if it rains though. The big firework show was right across the street from us at the lake. We’re not sure yet if all of are ferals are still here or not.

Speaking of ferals, the Dad decided to go back to the drop trap since he might not be quick enough these days for the grab and go. So, first try on Saturday we got three of the black kittens…

Sorry for the poor quality photo, it was somewhat dark in the garage. The third kitten is hiding in the litter box. The three of them went to a local rescue where they’ll be all checked out and start the socializing process. Hopefully they’ll get some good homes. Their Momma and the two siblings are pretty distraught that they are missing. We thought there were five kittens but another Momma, the one we’ve never been able to trap, showed up with her two new ones, and then a lone and lost kitten showed up. We’ve got lots of work to do here.

Have a fun Monday everyone. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Wow, you do fireworks for a very long time in your neck of the woods. It was noisy here last night and when we went to bed at 10 they were still at it. Thank goodness for the white noise machine.

    Good work on the ferals. I know you’ll get them all at some point. Thank you for all you do.

    Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches all around and my best to your peeps. ♥

    Concats on the trapping; wishing you continued success.
    If more folks would spay and neuter…okay, I know that I’m singing to the choir.
    Thank you for helping these kitties.

    You look really good up in the Sky Lounge and I’m so happy to hear that at least three of the kittens have a chance of a happy home and that maybe there’s a chance you can catch the other kittens and give them a happy home.

    We’re glad your dad was able to get those three kittens and hope they learn to be nice house cats someday. Our paws are crossed that he has good luck catching the rest of them too.

    I just have to tell you that your mom and dad ROCK!!!! I love that they love and care for the feral. So happy that the kittens will have a great start at getting close to having a good family. It is fun socializing those critters. Misty was not an issue since she came to us at two weeks. It was the other for kittens to Mama cat that was more of a challenge and not really that bad. They actually did great. It was also fun loving on them. THey were the last of Mama Cats litters. She was ran over shortly after that. Two went to good homes and are doing well. One went to a good home but tried to dart out of the door one night when they were closing it and his little head got caught. I cried over that. And the 4th went to a lady who really wanted him but did not bring him in slowly with two dogs and another cat. It was a unsettling issue. Mark and Kim (brother/sis in law) got him back and he lives with them. I am all for feral babes becoming home babes! Thanks Mom and Dad!!

    Congratulations Dad, three at once! Don’t you just love those drop traps? Keep up the good work you Superheroes you, we’re sending pawsitives your way to nab all 5.

    We care for a community of feral cats, trapping and having them spayed/neutered in addition to feeding and providing some shelter. It is a taxing venture but so necessary to ensure there are not more unwanted kittens brought into the world. I hope the three kittens you rescued find happy, loving homes.

    Looks like you have a good vantage point for keeping tabs on everything, Brian! I sure hope the ferals are all there after the fireworks, we’re not looking forward to any more booms either.
    Those are some cute little black kittens peeking at us with their little gold eyes! I bet they socialize just fine and will all get homes.

  13. Marv, Jo Jo, Kozmo, Cinnamon & Barb

    Brian, you look pretty terrific! Right now, because of the extreme heat in our province, it is/was a minimum $1000 fine to let of ANY fireworks, plus ther could be jail time. |There were no fireworks here on Canada or Independence Day. We got our claws and fingers crossed that your Dad has an easy time capturing the ferals!

  14. Cathy Keisha

    Sounds like your dad has a fun time ahead of him. Those kitties are so cute. They hardly look old enough to be away from mom but your dad knows best. All kittens look too young to me.

  15. Summer

    You guys do have a lot of work! My human and the rescuer here managed to trap the mother living nearby tonight, but we still need to get the kittens. They are old enough to be without their mom.

  16. Mickey's Musings

    I am purring you can get all the cats and that they get loving homes.
    Mum and her sister rescued me from the streets.
    Having a home is way better.
    Purrs, Julie

    Getting three at once is a good start. I’m sure their family misses them, but the little ones have a chance at a wonderful life because you are helping them.

  18. Cathy Kennedy

    Brian,

    Way to go, Dad! Those little things don’t understand what’s going on but they’ll hopefully be better off placed in a loving forever home safely cared for and loved. 🙂

    Your kindness is amazing. I pray the kittens all come through A-Ok and get wonderful homes.As a child I was fascinated by Saint Francis of Assisi. He was such a lover of animals. My mom’s oldest sister, Auntie Mary was that way too. No matter if it was a kitten, a bird, a turtle, she nursed them all and found homes for them. You all remind me of her too. Keep up the good work. My friend Lorna does this too and when she caught a giant raccoon in her humane trap, boy of boy, he was mad as heck! But she set up food, opened that door and prayed! He ate and bolted. Take care everyone. Thanks for sharing these wonderful rescues with us.

    Good job getting these, and good luck with the rest of them. Thank you, also, for your diligence!

    Oh, the airplane ears in the litterbox! I love those sorts of kittens. With fireworks and storms, herding cats is even more difficult. I agree, a drop trap is far easier for trapping smaller kittens. Good luck!
