And, as long as we were at the shelter

hanging about and patting this guy


We also met these dudes.

They apparently were rescued as babies from a warehouse, fostered, and have been at the shelter since June.
They sleep in a pile, and groom each other, and play, and the black one was being carried about like a scarf on one of the volunteers’ neck.
But they are really crowded.
And these guys are only sorta social, and very bonded, and not tiny kittens any longer, and not the really popular look.
The volunteers were very upset that the guys have really pretty much had as much of a chance as they were going to get, as in, until maybe at the end of the week…


(Actually, they were named Chad and Bruce, but I don’t think so.)

You may notice, they are in boxes.
Yes.
We have just doubled our cat population.
Sigh.

On the plus side, they seem to have the feral-hurray!-it’s-another-cat thing going.
I’m hoping they can hang with the kitten and keep him from being lonely when we aren’t around.
I can hope.

  8. SQUUEEEEEEE! RESCUE KITTEHS!!!! Oh, this is so wonderful. I just may have to cry. Dammit. I need to figure out if I'm staying here or running off to the far side of the world. If I stay, it's kitty time.

  11. As they say over here, Bless. as someone who also can not resist varmints who need a home and am prone to "doubling populations", you have just garnered some extra good karma. (a friend of mine keeps harassing me to get MORE rabbits.She has nine, but she also does not work. Rabbits need attention and also having a load of them in the house is not a great idea as they will fight and fight very fiercely.)

  15. I was reading this with a heart that kept gasping and I was so happy to get to the end and see them rescued…have cats become a fashion item then? That's just ridiculous. You are such a kind person to do this.
