Update on my household....

I haven't been around as much lately because of my school and full time work and 3 kids , but you guys are never too far from my thoughts..just an update on my kitties...they are still here and way too happy and settled. I also went to check on Mommy...our first Lachine rescue and she seems to be doing ok..but still pretty much semi-feral..I took Antonio to see her and they recognized each other as being from the same colony. those pictures will be coming up as soon as I know how to send them to my computer from my cell phone.

They look pretty content to me!

I have had no choice but to keep 2 of my fosters because they never got any hits. Now up to 5 cats but hey - they are happy and so am I.

What a gorgeous bunch of kitties! Love the grooming shot!!! Hard to believe there were no takers...but they're certainly in a wonderful place.

Benmax, I could handle 5, even 6 but I have 11 and way too many cats to be in a 850square foot house with 3 kids...but yes, they are happy, and we are very hairy...
Our Thanksgiving Turkey had cats hair instead of feathers!!!!

cpietra,I am glad they are still with you,although 11 cats in a small house I am sure can cause some problems
Tess does not seem to mind all the company,what about the basement kitties,still with you too???

What beautiful babies. Although none of them look that small any more. I am really sorry you didn't get any takers on adoptions. I don't have any either. I know both of the rescues I am with are having issues too. They are filled to overflowing and more coming. No where for them. :sad:
Hang in there. At least you know they are in a safe place. Somewhere down the line it gets better.

Hi cpietra, I have been thinking about you lately and wondering how you were doing.

Your kitties are looking very, very much at home You are doing such a great job with them. Sending some that they get placed soon I have feeling they don't want to go anywhere though

I guess no word on Angel :sad:

cpietra,the laughing smiley at the end of my post was inappropriate I am sure having all those cats in the house is not easy,but I am glad they are safe.
You've had Charlie and the other kitty(forgot the name)for quite awhile,they probable enjoy the kittens...you find homes for them

Cpietra,I wish I could help you out,I know what a wonderful person you are,I would never say anything hurtful to you.
We have our 3 cats,who do not like other cats and we cannot afford more vet-bills otherwise I would have a dozen.
I also have a stray outside whom I am getting closer to every day,feed him tons of food.
We are just in the process of putting together a winter-shelter for him and hopefully our HS will do a trap/neuter/release back here to us.

are the kittens all s/n and shots Cpietra16? or do you have to keep them all separated right now??? The reason I ask is because there must be rescues now that have spaces?
