I still put out food for these two little kittens, because I have not found a home for them. Some days I worry about them and hope they are okay. I called the Humane Society and every other place I could think of and they all told me the same thing. No room at the Inn. Occasionally I ask people I talk to if they can take them or if they know anyone that may want them. No takers yet. In the mean time.... when they show up they usually entertain me. Today the sun was out for just an hour, I think and they frolicked around the back playing. The white kitten has always looked very weak to me and doesn't seem to eat as much as the black one, and I have always worried that she just won't make it out there in the big bad world if she doesn't defend herself and stop letting the little black one always have the food. Maddie and I have named them Salt and Pepper. Pepper is wild and playful...and jumps on the pine trees and climbs up them. He (or she) is the daredevil that goes out on the ice in our pool. Salt seems low key..only eating after Pepper or anyone else is done. I say everyone, because we have 5 adults cats coming around trying to get their share of the food. One large cat comes around that we have named Tiger Barn Cat. He looks like a tiger and what I think a "Barn Cat" looks like. The name seems to fit. All of the cats are fascinating to watch. At times they seem to talk to each other with their eyes.
Today I noticed Salt and Pepper looking a little threatened, and looked over to the side of the yard just in time to see Tiger Barn Cat approaching. Brave and daring Pepper shot under the porch like a scared little rabbit, while shy and laid back Salt arched her back and defended their food. Tiger Barn Cat stomped his paw and hissed to them as if that was enough to scare them off. Salt stood firm in front of the bowls and hissed back, and big old Tiger Barn Cat took off.
Little Pepper came back out of its hiding spot very impressed with Salt. She ate the rest of the food.
Other than watching the cats....I have not been feeling well off and on, and busy. Hope to make more time soon to catch up with blogging and visiting blogs.
