Our Cats after Release: 
1.     Rockwall:  Mama (now Miss Kitty) was placed in this backyard situation in Rockwall.  She did not come home for a day or two but is back and doing great with the family and their dog.    
2.     Greenville:  Dixie and Pixie went to this front yard in the Greenville area and both are doing well.  There is a dog (now cat) house on the front porch and they are sharing it. 
3.     Shady Shores:  John is a “killing machine” for all those mice in their outdoor kitchen area.  WAY TO GO, JOHN...and he has a heated cat house and endless food!  I want that job!
4.     Celeste:  Buddy is doing well and they even requested a second cat.  Took Simon over there on Sunday.   

Calls/Emails:  “I don’t want them in a cage!”    
I received an email wanting me to take two 7 or 8 year old cats from someone what is moving.  I explained that they would be here in a cage waiting for a barn for them…then they would be in a cage for 2 weeks to get acclimated to their new surroundings/people.  Well, as you can guess – she does not want them in a cage.  “They have a great life here” – GOOD then you stay there with them BUT YOU ARE MOVING AND CANNOT TAKE THEM!  If she wants to decide where to put them and how to do it, then why is she calling someone else to do it for her…???  I don’t get it!  We did not even get this far – but I will not tell her where they are placed…just the city.  She wants to check up on them I am sure.  That is a privacy issue with the barn owners so I am not going to give her that info.  GOOD LUCK, CATS – you may need it.        

It has finally been raining but with major downpours…so there is mud everywhere!    One barn has a 50 yard want to get there – cannot drive up to it.  SOOOOOO – we will just have to wait until things dry out.  We have been stuck in mud several times and it is not pretty!  AAA in East Texas told me “You may have to wait til spring.”   GEEZ!     

OMG:  Texoma Cat House Residents
A mom and her 3 older girls went to this backyard location in the Texoma area.  (See placements above).  Here they are in their new digs…all save and sound…and settling in!
