Updates:  The female Laura trapped on Friday turned out to be lactating, so she was released.  Where she had babies is unknown to me.  But so tragic.  Her twin sister is still pregnant.  Diane trapped for me on Saturday and once again got two males.  Its not like you can release them even though you are trying for the pregnant females, which is what I was hoping she would get on Niagara Street.  They will most likely never go in a trap again, and they are the ones getting the girls pregnant so they must be done also.  I am waiting for Diane to get pictures of them so that I can post, but in the meantime, they will both go to the clinic tomorrow morning.

If y'all remember Peepers.  She is the girl I rescued from Parsells on April 9th.  Barefoot and pregnant. Well, look who had her babies!

I kept her warm and safe for a week and she was then whisked off to a woman that I don't know - arranged by a friend of mine - to foster her and help deliver her babies because of how far along she was.  From the pictures, she looks to be a good mom.  I've tried to reach out to the woman for a little more information, but don't seem to get responses from her.  Thats the only hard part of what I do, is when someone, or a rescue group that I don't know takes in my little ones that I love and care for on the streets, and I don't have any say, or get any information from, about the cat.  But that's the chance you take when trying to decide what is best for that animal.   You just have to trust that all will be ok.

It was a very foggy morning,  you could cut it with a knife.  We had heavy downpours, thunder and lightning yesterday afternoon, surely spoiling the many Mother's Day cookouts going on around Rochester.  We definitely need the rain, but how frightening it must be for homeless animals.  The rain came down in buckets, and the sound of the booms of thunder made you jump.

In the quietness of the morning when I go out to feed the cats, just around 5 am. you start to hear the birds.  They make the most eerie sounds.  I sometimes have to stop and just listen, because it almost sounds like baby kittens crying.   Terrible to think it actually could be kittens.

Have a good day all.

  1. That's too bad about the twins.....a lot of time and energy went into it, but maybe, you will still find the babies. I hear what sound like kittens crying in my woods, and I look but don't see anything....I was told there is such a thing as a Cat Bird in NY state that makes this noise.......?

  2. Peepers looks beautiful and her babies look just like her! I hope you will continue to get pictures of them so we can see them get cuter and cuter. I will say a prayer that you find the baby kittens. Could Kings go and watch the area maybe for an hour from his car and see if he sees where she goes? Just an idea.... great job on 3 more fixed kitties! - kristin
