Orbit, the second black cat; and Benni, the pregnant mom; go on Sunday to get fixed. I am praying Benni is not too far along for them to fix. Kittens are not something I want to deal with right now. Although I would if necessary. Orbit has turned into a snugglebum. :cloud9: I pick him up and he just sort of melts into me. He will make someone a great kitty if I can get him adopted. But my criteria is something like L4H's. :rolleyes:
I need to find a spot for Snoopy, the kitten, for a few days so mom can recover. I have run out of spots. Wonder if DH would notice a small white/black tabby boy in the house????? :D

Oribit rings a bell, but I'm drawing a blank on Benni... :o I don't remember Benni at all! :confused: Sigh...senility....early senility, of course, cuz only madame hazel is really old :o :laughing:

Good luck to both of them Sunday! :goodvibes:

Mmm 14+, have you checked out the catery for comfort, you may find yourself out there :laughing::laughing:

Snoopy is so adorable, don't see how he could object to one more. LOL

I actually have wondered how warm it would be to spend the night over there one night. Just to cuddle down among all the kitties. I would have to get rid of all the stupid misquitoes though. Or, wait till it's too cold for them. :thumbs up:D
And he could object to one more. Believe me, he could. :D

Orbit is the second black kitty who got himself trapped in the greenhouse live trap a couple of weeks ago.

Benni is the one I took from that woman who said she was going to put her down unless someone took her. Supposedly she won't let her cats close to the house. I named her Benni because #1, she needs a name for the rescue to fix her and #2, she is cranky just like Bennie on George Lopez. Hubby came up with that one. :thumbs up I didn't find out about the kitten until after I agreed to take her. Then she told me about the "10 week old kitten". She neglected to tell me Benni was pregnant again. :frustrated:

I guess I do remember Bennie...just hadn't heard the name before, I think. Whew...not so senile after all! :laughing:

Orbit I remembered. :thumbs up

:goodvibes: for Orbit - happy to hear he's a snuggler :thumbs up will make adoption easier for a black cat if you can bear to part with him ;)

:goodvibes: for Benni :fingerscr she's not very far along & hopefully you can find a home for her (preferably not that guy's barn) too

and of course :goodvibes: for the kitten getting adopted - does he have a name yet & when can you get him in for a neuter? :goodvibes:

Well, just got home.

Orbit - One and a half years old. 9.9 pounds. :thumbs up Was not happy on the way. Much happier coming back. I think he was happy I picked him up. Probably thought he was being dumped.

Benni - Just One year old. 4.4 pounds. :sad: Was pregnant. Is not now. She was very quiet on the way there. Made up for it on the way home. I held her carrier on my knee as she didn't want to settle on the back seat. She didn't on my knee either. :rolleyes: She got me with her claws a few times. I will check on her soon. I hope she settles now she is back home.

omd, isn't 4.4 a bit small? Especially to be preggers? :sad: Benni is so lucky you have her! :grouphug:

Glad the surgeries went so well! :goodvibes: for quick recoveries for both of them!

14+kitties
August 16th, 2009, 09:29 PM
Yes hazel, 4.4 is really tiny to be preggers. And this was at least her second time to be pregnant. :yell: I haven't seen the "lady" who gave her up in the store since I got her but wait till I do. I have a few choice words for her. :frustrated: I am having problems trying to find a food she will eat. Snoopy (the kitten) too. They seem to only eat a very small amount of wet but you put dry in they go to town. I am going to have to do some experimenting. They both need to put on mega weight.
First two are Benni not looking too happy. I put Snoopy in a crate right beside her so she can see him but he can't get to her to harm her stitches. Hopefully she will sleep the night away. She has a lot of healing to do. :sad:

He is a sweetie! I think he will make someone a wonderful pet. I am spreading the word at work. We'll see.

I love her nose. It's darker than any of my other tabbies. Just need to get her fattened up and a lot more sociable. She won't be going to a barn either. She is much too small. I just went to check on them. Orbit is sawing logs. She is still awake and on guard.

It makes me so angry when I think she already had one litter. How big do you think she was when she had them three or four months ago? She never got a chance to gain anything back from nursing them and she was pregnant again. :wall: Sometimes people make me sick! :yell: And no, I never did phone the "lady" back to let her know Benni and Snoopy were ok. :rolleyes:

Orbit already likes you :cloud9:

Orbit is just a sweetheart. He is sure coming around. :lovestruck:

14+ 4.4lbs and pregnant? That is terrible...I'm so glad she has you, poor kitty. I hope she heals quickly. :grouphug:

You probably know this, but could u sprinkle day food on top of the wet?

Darby is a dry food junkie and I had to do that to get her to eat wet.

Thanks TQ. Yep, I knew the dry food trick. It is one of many I have up my sleeve to try. We shall see what I can do. She just needs to gain. So does Snoopy.

Scooby - cute! Snoopy needs to be six months old or three pounds to go in for his snip. I figure he is around 3 - 4 months, maybe 2 pounds at the most so it will be a bit yet.

I know. I am so angry with that person!
Orbit is so laid back and happy. Seems a little hesitant about being picked up. On the way back home he was so quiet. It was almost like he was so relieved when I came back to pick him up he knew he could relax. :cloud9:

Yep, my feeling exactly. I have doubts he came from the barn down the road. I am getting a large vibe that he was dumped. He is such a sweetheart. I don't know how people can do that and still look at themselves in the mirror.

I am going to go spend some time with the garage kitties now.

My biggest regret, was dropping off a cat I tried to keep for 2 weeks. I didn't know better and was naive about my choices for allergy management. For the rest of my life I will think about that cat. For the rest of my life I will think of her and hope she found a home, and hope she forgave me for letting her go. It boggles my mind that there are people who don't give a second thought to doing something like that.

I think that's why I didn't give up on Czari. I had to make it work, if for any other reason to at the very least give her a home, where I could not give one to Serena, who had also been a stray.:sad:

om i can't believe 4.4 and prego again. its amazing the other kitten is doing as well as he seems to be. makes me look at stormy who only weighs about 5 pounds and i wouldn't ever let her bring babies in the world. or any of my cats for that matter. no matter how cute kittens are.

so glad orbit is so sweet. i can't believe someone just lets cats go. so sad this world we are in :sad:

:o Snoopy! sorry :o I used the proper typing finger, just the worng hand :D :laughing:

only just 2 lbs :sad: he should already be around 2.5lbs by his age :yell: :frustrated: the pics w/him & mum by comparison he looks bigger than 2lbs but of course he would with her at only 4lbs :sad:

The first couple of days they were here they ate a lot. I gave them both worm meds on the second day. After that their eating slowed down. Now it seems the only time they eat canned food is if I am standing/sitting right there with them. It is a little more time consuming now when I go to feed them so I make sure to make the time. I am hoping once they feel more at home they will start to eat more and gain weight. Benni is so small it's frightening to look at her. :sad:
