Wish us luck...

Sam may not care for cats, but we certainly don't mind them! This mama cat has been hanging around my Mom's house for about a year. Our horses are kept there, so we get to see the cats every day. She has presented us with three separate litters of kittens. The first two litters we were lucky enough to find early and bottle raise. They are now living happy lives as house kitties. We weren't so lucky with this last litter. We now have six very healthy and well-fed cats running around.

Tomorrow, we are going to try to trap mama and get her fixed with the help of a local spay/neuter program for feral cats. If this works well, her kitties will be going in next!

Sam refuses to comment about the whole cat situation. He could avoid one little cat quite well, but six?

Wish us luck!

These are two of the kitties! The one on the left is the bravest of the five.

...and a third...

The other two kitties are a little too shy for the camera.


  1. OOOOOO, kitties can be cute. Cats on the other hand....

  2. Yikes! That's a lot of kitties!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose and her mom

  3. Poor Sam, no way would any cats survive here:(

    Woos, the OP Pack

  4. That is so nice of you to do!!! Good luck and keep us posted.

  5. Hey there Sam
    Wow, those are sooo many CATs! You and I would probably have fun chasing them:) But your Mom is doing a good thing there for them! Feral cats have a hard life if unsterilised..shame, its hard to watch too.
    Anyway, we enjoyed our pillow fight too!
    Please send our best wishes to your family! We love you lots!

    That's lots of kitties!!!!
    They look soooooooooooooo cute...
    We love running with our "friends" cats and playing with them....
    We're very very ...Ehmmm...ehmmm...ehm... good friends of cats!!!
    Good luck dear friends!!
    Can't wait to hear news from you!!!
    HAve a wonderful day!!!
    Tons of love and kisses

  7. Oh kitties, they are so cute.. Callie thinks cats are stuffies so ours hide in mom and dad's bedroom all day..
    MeMaw has lots of wild cats in Wisconsin. Sometimes she can have as many as 20..
    Mom is certainly building our stamina with this step thing.. We have been to the lake 4 day in a row and never less that 10,000 steps..

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

  8. We are sending to you the strongest vibes to get that momma cat caught and spayed and vaccinated. God bless you for your efforts, God bless you.

    Domi, the therapy dog, has passed to the Bridge this weekend. Our blog contains her last letter to her friends. Please come to visit. It would mean so much to our momma and then go to Domi's blog to offer condolences. Momma is crying a lot today.

  9. Those kitties are so cute! Good luck catching all of them - it's such a kind thing for you to do. Please let us know how it goes!
    Save a life - spay and neuter!!!
    Tail wags,
