Animal/Pet Post

I have feral cats.  I have trapped several and had only two to go — one of those two got pregnant — I think.  I had to trap her.  I tried by not feeding any of them and using turkey as the bait on Thursday, but that didn’t work.  I didn’t feed them this morning and set out the trap with some salmon.

I waited with the string nearby to pull the trap for 3 hours this morning.  Nothing.  I then worked in the yard and did several things that I will write about tomorrow.  Around 6:00, the kittens were getting hungry, but none of them would take the bait, much less Toes — who is the target.

After one false catch (Tilly), I finally caught Toes at about 10:00 tonight.

She goes in to SNAP in the morning.  I know I can catch the last of them (Baby) because I have been handling her every day for a while now.  She will be easy to catch.

This is such a relief.

And now for a video that has been around the web, but it reminded me of friends and just how good pups can be.

  1. Here’s hoping that Toes is now peacefully recovering in the bathroom … and the video was so moving … the poor pups looked terribly cold and the watchful one seemed very stressed …

    • I posted about Toes. She’s fine — very worn out, but she will be ok.

      The pups reminded me of the love that Gretchen had for Buddy and vise-versa. I see that love too with Tam and Murphy. As we have always said, Murphy is what has kept Tam alive . . . whether it is love, attention, or just hoping he doesn’t get all of the cookies 🙂
