A kitty invasion. BUT, BUT, BUT I HAS NO KITTEHS!

I have no kitties, so who are these critters in my house and how on earth did they get here? Scratches head


The white boy with the eyebrows in the first pic calls himself Punky and claims to be 12 or 13 years old.
He is not quite sure (as we get older we tend to lose track of things like age).
He was the first of the invaders. Started hanging around my back yard more and more since early August, though he knew darn well where his home
was. He thanked me very politely for the lovely R20 shelter I had built for him on my back deck but stated that he much preferred the interior of my house.
He has been hanging his hat in here since mid October.

The coy little gal in the second pic is his former housemate (sister), Tweaky (about 6 years old).
She decided her big brother had a pretty sweet deal going, so, not to be outdone, when the weather started getting colder in November
she decided to move herself in, too.

In the last pic, we have Sassy ( 5 and a half years old). Her mommy smuggled her into low rental housing at the end of November. Sassy,
being the sassy girl that she is, let the cat out of bag when she decided to play footsies under the door with the neighbour's little girl.
Sassy has been cooling her heels at my house since the week before Christmas.

So there you have it. An update on my petless household.

Yes, Tweaky looks like a mischievous little gal and she is.

Well, at the moment I consider myself to be a foster kitty mom.

First Punky, then Tweaky (gee, I didn't even spell her name right), kind of decided for themselves this summer that they would prefer to spend their time in my yard even though they had a home three houses down. They have been indoor/outdoor cats (mostly outdoors) all their lives. Now, in early December, their family has broken up and I have been officially asked by the sons (one age 22 and the other in his late teens) if I could continue to take care of the kitties "for now." The parents don't seem to care about them at all, but the boys do. It is a bit of complicated situation. I think they would be better off staying with me and I think the boys will want to do what is best for them. All three kitties are quite settled in and happy with the current situation and I must admit I already am having a hard time imagining my life without them. So we'll see.

Congratulations on your new additions. Tweaky reminds me of my Tiny Miss, Kiska.

Well, I hope THREE is the lucky number cause one per month for the last three months was getting a bit scary. If this were to continue ........

Well, I don't know for sure what is going to happen. For now, I am just calling myself a foster mom.
