They Grow Up So Fast…


Remember these four little ferals that showed up at our door in January?




The little gray one just above was adopted first, by a lady who lives alone and wanted a companion.  Reports are that she follows her around and is becoming a lap kitty, which is exactly what she wanted.

The little calico is back outdoors because she didn't take well to being an indoor cat.  She has now joined the little colony in the back yard and is doing well.

The two "boys" in the photo below are still with us, and look how big they have grown:



We haven't found homes for them yet, and we are becoming attached to them.  We have offered them to our neighbor but she also might consider smaller kittens.  I don't know how I feel about keeping them.  They haven't been accepted by our other three cats and that could be a problem.  I'm not sure how to facilitate that.  We currently have three "upstairs" cats and these two "downstairs" cats.  When we bring them together the established three just run and hide and refuse to come out until the two "boys" are back downstairs.

A dilemma…

Ah if only they could all get on but that's the way of the world isn't it! Beautiful pictures. Would be lovely if the boys could be rehomed together.

Keep trying - at least they've become indoor cats, which might be easier when rehoming? The ginger one is very beautiful; I think every home needs a ginger cat to light up the corners on dark days!

I agree, Pam, I would prefer that they stay together; they are "best buddies".

Rachel, I will keep trying. They have adapted to the indoors quite well.
