Good question! Let's see. Outside: Booger, the stray we care for. Inside: Lazlo and Sheldon. Other Ferals/Strays: Their three brothers, Julius (neutered); Tuxedo (Gary named him when we took him to the Vet), now neutered and happily released, playing around the R.V. today; and Spooky, as yet untrapped. The kids' mom, Mommy, now spayed. Sheldon and Tuxedo's Dad, (black & white) un-named and not yet trapped. Julius' Dad, (orange tabby - look - I'm even learning the lingo!) un-named and as yet un-trapped. The new grey & white, same pattern as Shel and Tuxedo, un-named (male or female?) and as yet un-trapped. This one doesn't run - only moves a few feet away, so we'll probably be able to pet and/or trap it pretty easily soon. There's also the grey mommy, un-named and un-trapped. We'll wait until her kittens are older to try. Her kittens will probably be along shortly. Shadow, the beautiful all black cat (male or female?), also un-trapped. Haven't seen Lazlo and Spooky's dad yet, but he must be around somewhere.
So how many is that? If I counted right, eight ferals we know of with three successfully neutered/spayed, (although we haven't seen Mommy since we had her spayed), an un-accounted for Dad, un-known number of kittens yet to appear, and our three little loves. Well - Booger's pretty big. She's fattened up nicely over the summer, and probably runs 14 or so pounds now.
We put out food for 10 (generous portions!) and it all disappears, although it could be just the eight of them. Didn't realize it was so many - guess we'll have to up the amount of food we're putting out. Booger gets fed separately because she just isn't part of the colony.
Wow! Pretty impressive for a "dog" person and a cat-hater - LOL!
