So I knew I was in trouble when forestcats came upstairs yesterday morning while I was finishing washing up, and said "Do you love me?"
This is always a warning of impending alarms and excursions.
It seems that a friend's yard had become a nursery for a cat and her six kittens. There's always a hankering on the part of forestcats to socialize these strays so that they can be adopted out, and lead a longer, healthier life than they would have done in the street. So, she captured the kittens, and brought them all home.
Six. Four male, two female. And she got them at the perfect socialization age; they're very responsive to humans presently, and they're learning to enjoy and trust our touch.
But ... six?
We need to train 'em up, and get 'em out!
Anyone want a sweet little kitten?
Our own cats are reacting with disdain or even outright hostility. I can't imagine why...
Carnavore feast this weekend, I know you'll have plenty of people there to submit to the kittens. I sooo want another cat, but I can't with renters, etc...
horrid thought - every couple at Carnivore should take home a kitty... hahaha.
Don't laugh, forestcats
may pursue that thought...
more excuses for you - I'm single... (I'm not a couple), and not invited to Carnivore (Carnavore?) :) lol.
(a bit far to drive, too... couple hours round-trip.)
People come from greater distances than that to be here, but no matter. We'll see what happens...
Maybe you could get the cat work in Hollywood. Then, it could be a renter!
We're already over-catted. But I'm sure V. will help love on them some.
What is this "over-catted" you mention? Are there two digits worth? If not, you've a ways to go, yet.
We're skirting the fine edge of illegality here as is. One more and the pet police will be here to take us into custody.
And so you see thereby the joys of living zoned agricultural...

Kitteh...! I dont think they'd take too kindly to being shipped over the ocean though!
Hope you manage to re-home them soon.
Perhaps a sub-orbital rocket flight?
We actually had two cats shipped to us from Denmark, once, though...
It's better than another giant turtle! At least you can give kittens away. :D
Hey, we gave the tortoise away...just to a reptile rescue...
Oh my goodness...I am SO very tempted, but I would wind up divorced. And my own cats would try to kill me in my sleep.
The cats always scheme, but rarely succeed...
I'd love to, but out here, cats are in peril, and there's no way I could do an indoor-only cat. In any case, i'm planning on visiting the shelters to find a dog at the end of August. (traveling until then...)
LOL! I wish my SO would let me do that!
You need to crack the whip, then.
*Laugh* You have such a nice wife! :)
"Nice" isn't the half of it...
I want another cat so bad, but my parents unfortunately say one is enough. One is never enough.
I think they would, but if it showed up on the doorstep with a bow and a gift tag and no return address...they would have to let me keep it :)
