Our Cats after Release:
1. Miller Grove: Spunkie, Jack, Tuxie, and Perch went to this screened in back porch. I went there to move the cats into the “house” the property owner had made. 2 cats got away from us but the other 2 went successfully into the “house” and stayed. I think the other two will be back – the food is there!
2. Waxahachie: Watermelon, Fig, Mimi, Ozzie, Midnight, and Big Daddy went 2 to a garden shed and 4 above the barn in a storage area. All 6 are still around -- YES!
3. McKinney: Raven, Freddie, Houdini, and Phoenix went to this barn home. All 4 are still around and doing very well. The property has 2 donkeys and a Great Pyrenes to keep them safe – AND – they took Clay this week to be indoor/outdoor. Great chance for all of them!
4. Wylie: Billy went to this workshop. I did not get to see him – I picked up the equipment at their office. He “is” still there and home it all works out.
5. Dodd City: Charlotte, Jack, and Henry went to this barn that is just behind the family home. The food is disappearing but the cats have not been spotted. I’ll bet that will change!
Calls/Emails: Many Kitten Calls/Emails
People obviously don’t read our website because we do not ever take kittens. The hawks carry them off in the daytime or the owls at night. But – even though we do not take them – I try and give advice and direction.
BMG: Computer Issues
You know these things are all MAGIC AND MIRRORS! I was writing the BLOG this afternoon when I got the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. AHHHHHHH! Well, my computer friend just got it repaired and I am back in business. I vote for smoke signals!
