Yah think? Hah...I can just see this little wobbly darting between homes and bushes until he senses ...he's arrived.

I can see the invisible white kerchief filled with his favorite toy and a bit of food tied to a pole that was held over his shoulder (yes, I am nuts).

Probably the same sign that seems to be on the wall of my house that faces my large fenced backyard.

itty bitty blue actually came to his food bowl tonight and ate while I was sitting less than a foot away. Big step!

Great news Pat!!!!!!

It does happen a lot to many people... expecially when people can drive by and see I dont know.. EIGHT cats sitting in the window

What you actually need to do IS make a sign. One that says:

"I'm not a Shelter/Humane society. Dont drop off pets on my front porch."

Do you have outside/feral cats? or are your inside ones outside/inside. Maybe one of your cats brought the baby home and forgot about it???

Otherwise with a kitten like this you probably are becoming a target for people wanting to drop off kittens THe sad thing is ... it will most likely continue to happen...

I hope you find a good home for the little cutey! I would steal him in a minute but my mom would murder me.... slowly.. and painfully.. and with many brussel sprouts and forced creamed corn eating.

I have a tip for you...when brussel sprouts start to taste really good? You are getting old I know...I now like brussel sprouts (tee hee).

When I used to live in Missouri.. we had 2 inside cats.. three inside/outside.. and about... five or more friendly ferals.

We moved there with the two inside cats... the neighbors unfortunately had NINE CUTE FAT LITTLE PUPPIES. and two cute little kittens! I played with them and soon the neighbor told us to just take them (since they only wanted one of the puppies and not the cats...) WELL. Turns out those two were the little Saint Kitties of Farber, Missouri!!! Not only did they steal Winky (a little black kitten) from the nephew of our neighbor, and he became ours... but they also brought in all the strays.. I swear.. I could hear them.

"Hey guys.. are you hungry? Want a nice meal and soem clean water? You can come to our house. Our humans will feed you!"

In fact... they also brought home five dogs too! But they were just run aways from down the street.

Hey.. so think about it.. even if the random person drops off a cat or kitten every once in a while.. you at least dont have your cats bringing in untold numbers of strays

We went through one of those very huge like 20lb bags every two weeks!!! It would have lasted Ari and Elliot like.. six months!

Hehhe.. a funny thing is that the little nephew got another kitten..a white one.. and he was playing with it outside... I didnt even see him and was just coming outside to find one of the cats.. the kid looked at me and ran. poor kid! I guess he though I was the one stealing his kittens!

Lol, thing is, to get to my house, you have to be either lost or coming here, 'cause I'm out in the country, at the end of a dead end road and private drive. Have been here 12 years now, only a couple of cats and dawgs dropped on me....most of the dogs leave home pretty soon....don't like all the feral cats, lol.....

Cindy how did I miss the latest news at kitty central. How lovely that your feral gets to fulfil her maternal urges too.

I love it how hub just noticed one more kitty in the morning . How's little kitty doing today?

When I moved out of my mother's house, I had one cat, Athena. I decided that one cat was a lonely number, so got Min from a rescue...but, Min was a baby, Athena wanted nothing to do with her, so I got Oliver from the same rescue a couple days later...he was her age, they played, all was well with the world.

Three cats is a good number for anyone right? Then the vet tech told me of the tortiseshell that the owners had abandoned because it had worms and she didn't want to take it to a shelter...so four cats is good, right?

Then the dog finds an eight week old cow kitty on the side of the road. Okay, five. Five is my TOP NUMBER.

Then I went to a breeder to get a bengal for my sister, because hers died...and fell in love with one of the other bengals. Okay, SIX is an even number! NO MORE!

The a co-worker "I have these kittens and my landlord..." yada yada yada.

And no one wants black kittens.

EIGHT CATS!!! *THUMP* Please, someone shoot me now.

*feebly* Anyone want a pair of mostly black kittens that my tortiseshell absolutely adores and who my dog has adopted as her own?

Ok guys...ready for the sweetest story around? The surrogate mom makes enough milk to keep him stable during the day and overnight, but I still have to supplement it when I'm here. Ahem....hub came home tonight to go to bed while I finished up at the bakery. He hadn't been gone more than ten minutes when my cell started ringing...ring, ring, ring.....sigh.....it was hub....he wanted to know how much I fed the little guy at a time, seems he was fussy when hub came in, so he decided he needed to feed him!
