Crazy Cat People

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

So after reading a friend's blog about trying to find a home for the kittens that she has rescued, I realized that I am surrounded by Crazy Cat People.

There is my niece Kyla. Although her litter is diminishing as they are getting old and passing on, and she kept her promise to her husband of no more new cats, I do believe she still has 6 or 7.

My best friend June used to have two cats, but couldn't help but rescue one stray that was injured. Next thing you know, that rescued cat had kittens and she was suddenly up to 7 cats. Her husband passed away shortly after that and the seven cats gave her great comfort. Soon her litter grew to about 12 cats with more rescued cats. A few began to have some health issues, and the vet told she needed to find homes for some of her cats because they were never meant to live in that small of place in such numbers. She's now down to 6 cats again.

Then my friend Brian told me that the cute little kittens he had last year (and couldn't seem to part with) had babies. So far he has found two out of the three litters. He had 4 females (Momma and kittens) and 2 males (Pappa and a kitten) running around his acreage last spring. The male kitten grew up and disappeared during the winter. So now he has 12 kittens and 5 adult cats running around his place. He knows the third cat had kittens too last week, but hasn't found them yet to know how many are there. He loves his kittens.

Now none of that makes these people crazy, but they all do call me friend. That and their sense of humor definitely makes them a little warped. I love my crazy cat people friends.

(Hmmm, I wonder if maybe I'm not a little crazy myself - I hang out with these people and I am allergic to cats. lol)

    Sounds like me and my hubby. That is how he attracted me to come to his house. He announced to me that his cat had just had kittens. Oh how cute they were.

    We have a mixed brood of dogs/cats (4/3).

    For ferel cats, if you can catch the male and neuter him, the females don't HAVE to be done. They should though.

    I am a true animal lover and will try not to whittle my brood. The hubby wants to though. emoticon

    I started out with 42 an am down to 9 and am getting to the point that I just cannot take any more kitties off of the street.

    I have had so many cats, dogs and birds in my life time there is no way I could ever come up with an accurae count because there have been sooo many.

    If people would get their cats and dogs spayed and neutered to keep from having more and then throwing them outside sure would be a very big help.

    I have also taken in many children when they were having problems until they could go back home.

    Life is life and there are so many people and little critters who need our help

    Oof! Sounds like your friends need to make friends with a vet or seven to keep their litters from expanding!

    I have a very strict rule in my house: no more cats than people. emoticon
