Naddy, Gracie and Tipster relaxing. You can see Naddy's spay incision pretty clearly. It's taking a long time to heal. I am thinking the antibiotics she was on for two weeks prior to spaying had something to do with it. She's getting there though. :thumbs up

Chrissie - wouldn't move from beside the boxes so I could get a better pic. Silly gal. :cloud9: Her eye is still a little goopy so she is on homeopathic meds for it. :thumbs up:thumbs up

Tipster hiding under the edge of the bed. He's not crazy about the camera flash.

Sneakers going after the camera strap. She is full of p*$$ and vinegar lately.:D

Awwww, they are looking great.

Poor Naddy, I wonder if her immune system is just a little weak at the moment. I have found that the adult cats do seem to take longer to heal than the kittens.

They look amazing! Tell me 14+K - do you adopt out any of your kittens or cats? I have someone in Ontario actually looking for a 'full' tabby with little to no white. I know - weird request.

I have had quite a number of cats older than her fixed and not had the same issue. :shrug: I'm keeping a close eye on her incision to make sure it doesn't get infected. I even went so far as to put a cone on her. What a waste of $20.00 that would have done better going toward food. I put it on as tight as I could without choking the poor gal. She put her paws up and flicked it off. :laughing: It was funny but frustrating too. It did look better this morning though. :fingerscr

Sneakers, as you can see from the pic, is a "full" tabby. You are right. It is weird. I normally don't let kittens go before six months because I want to make sure they are fixed. That would be another 5 weeks or so. PM me and we'll see if we can set something up. :thumbs up

He is turning into a little purr machine! Almost as much as Dart. He is going to be an amazing adult kitty. Huge and very content to sit and be a lap cat. :thumbs up

I so wish Lucky would be good with cats :(. I'd adopt Nefer and Dart in a second :cloud9:.

So much cuteness :lovestruck: Love the first set where they are lying all over the hutch! No fights nothing! :shrug: I'll have to show Ziggy!!!

They are all doing so well...what a labor of love that saved these precious souls. Makes my heart swell every time! Can't imagine how you have the strength to let them go after 6 months. Necessary evil I know but still :cry:

Great job! :thumbs up

That's actually the headboard of my old water bed. I loved it too much to get rid of the frame when the bladder burst so put a regulation mattress in it.
With a family of seven we do have the odd scuffle break out. The boys decide they are going to harass their sisters on a regular basis. :laughing:
Technically once they are fixed and ready to go I would only have had them for around four months. Doesn't make it easier to let go. I think about them a lot. Especially after losing Bandit last year a month after adopting him out. :(

Poor sweet Naddy. I hope she heals up quickly. No cone head for that beauty though mom. They all look so great and content. I'm with diandpat, I don't know how you part with them. Hey, that said, have you ever??? I think your count just keeps going up and up, I can't recall any adoption stories :rolleyes:. Is this a secret maybe that hubby just hasn't caught on to yet?? You rock my friend with all you do for the kitties.

Yes, I have adopted a few. :p Sparta and PC are now with my daughter and son respectively. Nip and Tuck were adopted by a customer from my greenhouse days. Teegan and Jade are with a friend of my son. Bandit :rip: :angel2: was adopted by the son of the same customer who adopted Nip and Tuck. He unfortunately was pts about a month or so after he left here. I get the feeling from what was said the vet didn't want to take the time to look after him properly so close to Christmas. :(
My problem is I am very particular about the homes my babies go to. Especially after Bandit. :cry: With the "farmers mentality" in this area where cats are allowed to go wherever and procreate freely and no one wants to "pay for a silly cat" it makes my decisions harder.

14+,I had been waiting for some new pics.
I think little Naddie looks very good,in spite of her scar,her sweet little face looks fuller,you've done wonderful as always:grouphug:
All the kittens are looking great too,especially little Tipster and Sneakers(I am not biased)bbut they all do.

I'll just have to take those 2 and maybe Dart,unfortunately only in my dreams:(

It will be a heartbreak for sure,even for us here,once they get adopted,or if they get adopted.
How do you decide upon meeting a stranger,if they are going to be good cat-owners,it must be really difficult and such a big responsibility.

'Sok ladies. You are both very busy. :thumbs up Kitties are growing fast. The boys are much bigger than the girls. All four of the girls are dainty. Like mom. Next month they can all go to be fixed. I'm hoping to get them all done on the same day so they can all recoup together. :fingerscr
