I got home from work yesterday and found Mr. Possum on the porch again. He's become a sort of regular so we 'get' each other. I don't bother him, he doesn't bother me. I put food and water out, make sure they are full for him, and leave him in peach to eat and drink. Annabelle, my stray I've been feeding for well over 7 years now, could care less about him also. Him or her. Dunno. I noticed he is missing some fur on his back. Probably having a hard time out there, and not such an easy life for him, I'm sure.
Speaking of missing fur, so as I mentioned there are two red with white cats on Pennsylvania. One, who is not neutered, the only one not fixed I believe, has a small patch developing on his back where there is no fur. And it looked wet. And irritated. He has really come around since he first joined the regulars there. He stayed his distance, now he entwines himself around my legs as I stand there, and I can pick him up and put him into the shelter to entice him to eat, and not stand there like a bully guarding everything so the other cats are too intimidated to come eat their portions. There are kitties with issues out there, and I try to do my best.
That's it in a nutshell. I did NOT see the calico kitty. Sometimes I feel like God comes and swoops up those he feels he needs to take. I will see a severely sick or injured kitty one day, hope to get it the next, and never see it again. Its terribly sad for me to see this, and terribly sad never seeing them again.
I am in need of small shelters. I am giving away my last to a kind person who feeds a stray and asked if I knew of anyone that had a shelter she could have for the cat. I just couldn't say no when I had a perfectly good one, my last. I am also in need of toe warmers! I am down to my last hand warmers that I've been using for my feet! UGGH. I am wondering if Target or Walmart has them. I've had a couple of people over the years donate them to me, but don't know where they got them. Spring is just around the corner, I keep telling myself! 🐾🌞🌞🌞🌸🌸🌸
Have a great day!
