Kitty Care.....

I thought I would show you the five cats I am feeding while our neighbors are out of town. They went to San Antonio for a few days for Spring Break. Two of the kitties are in their laundry room and they are "teen" cats. Not full grown but not kittens. Debbie (the owner) works part time at Wal-mart while her children are in school and these two were dumped in the garden center. She brought them home and had them fixed. They both usually just hide and hiss when I come into the laundry room but this one came out and actually let me pet it (I don't even know if they are male or females) for a minute before it hissed and hid again.
Here is the other one hiding behind the dryer. It won't let me get near it and stays hidden while I am getting their food ready and scooping the litter box.

These three are outside cats. Aren't they beautiful?!? They are all fixed and just stay right around their home.
Here is one more picture. The darker cat on the far right is Mama kitty and is the mother of all three of the cats in the previous picture. She came across the street with me when I went to feed the cats. You see she is basically our outdoor cat. You can read the story about her here.
Hope you have a great St. Patrick's Day and a great Tuesday. We are supposed to get into the 80's today. WOOHOO!!

How sweet, I love cats! It's nice of you to take care of them. It's also very nice of your neighbor to rescue them.

They are so sweet and how wonderful of your friend to adopt those 2 from Wal-mart. I am a sucker for animals and think ALL cats are beautiful! I did kitty duty for a friend's cats while she was in Ireland this last summer. After 2 weeks the kitties still wouldn't come to play. They did venture out to eat though. Now, that mama cat, we had one just like her who lived to be 20! She was a cranky cat and very quirky but we loved her. We rescued her and raised her on a bottle when she was only 3 weeks old. Good luck. I'm going back to read about her now. Love this weather!!

You and I seem to feel the same way about animals. I think cats are just all so precious and I love all animals but esp. cats. Mama Kitty looks SO much like our Annie Cat. So kind and caring of you and the neighbor to care for the other neighbor's cats.

Oooh, those gray cats are beautiful! I am partial to tortoise-shell/calicos, myself. I had two growing up that I loved dearly. Sigh...now it's just a house full of dogs.... : )

Cats are so funny! They are NOT going to let you love them! THEY choose whether or not there will be any love going on!

The kitties are beautiful!

Happy St. Patty's to you, too!

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
I love kitties *smiles* Thanks for sharing your pictures from your kittie care adventure. The outdoor kitties are remind me so much of our beloved Sabrina-kitty who was a Russian Blue. Have a wonderful day and enjoy your beautiful weather!

Laura said...

Happy St. Paddy's Day - thanks for sharing the kitties!

Shelia said...

Oh, you're a good neighbor and the little kitties are cute. What pretty little eyes they have! I would love to have a cat, always did growing up, but Mr. Precious is allergic.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Aw how cute. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Deb said...

Happy St.Paddy's Day Darlene! Your friend was so kind to adopt these sweet cats! They are beautiful.

Joanna said...

How funny...Cats are so curious yet so shy as well. So sweet of you to be taking care of the kitties while your neighbor is away.

Happy St Patty's Day!

How nice of you! I know how important and helpful when you have someone who is willin' to go to the trouble and come take care of your animals. They must be nice people to care for the little dumped ones. We are know as the cat people around here. At one time we had 10 cats! We would take little orphans that people would dump. We always had them fixed and they became part of our family, BUT they stayed in the barn! We are down to only 5 cats right now and the youngest is in the house and she is a terror!
You are certainly my kind of neighbor.LOL

Carrie said...

Wow that's a lot of kitties I can barely keep up with one lol! Happy St. Patricks Day to you too!

Caren said...

April said...

Beautiful cats, but I'm very allergic to them...I puff up like a blowfish!

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you, too!

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you...

Jill said...

Hi Darlene.. Too cute!!!!! That is so great of your neighbor to take them in and great of you to watch them!

Have you signed my follower list yet??? I use it more than my blog list to follow blogs!

dana said...

You knew I would love this story, Darlene, since I am a Cat Sap! How wonderful that your neighbor took those hissing, hiding kitties in and gave them a home--plus takes care of the three outside felines! I do remember your story about the neighbor's cat that calls your place home. Thank goodness there are Cat Lovers in this world--I know the cats certainly appreciate it!

Lexi's BD looks like sooooo much fun---I know she is the apple of your eye.

Hope you've had a grand 'ol St. Paddy's Day! L, Dana

Aleta said...

I love the pictures! Cats are so sweet.

Lindsay-ann said...

Hi Darlene
Thanks for your sweet birthday wishes. I have had a lovely day.
I hope those gorgeous cats are behaving themselves for you and not hissing too much. There's a cat on our street who thinks it lives with us. It just walks right in if we leave the door open by accident. One night it got shut in our garage and my daughter could hear the sound of it meaowing in the morning through the floor boards!

Happy St. Patrick's Day and I hope YOU are wearing GREEN too!'
The kitties are so cute aren't they...I read the story about the Mama cat. I don't like that they allow it to have all those litters. Thats so unfair on her and where are they to find home? I'm glad some people have had them fixed but still...
you are the busy Kitty Sitter this week.
thank you for sharing the story and enjoy the 80s coming up...we're into the 60s tomorrow yahoooo tooo... we can expect more snow and a major snowfall before the spring settles in so this is soooo nice and welcoming!
have a nice evening
Judi

Those kitties are precious! You are such a good friend to take care of them, too.:)

I wanted to let you know that the recipe I posted tonight is really yummy- especially when it is warm out of the over! If you wait until it cools it tastes a bit "healthier", but it's still good.:) Lori

Glitter and Bliss said...

How cute are they!!! We have one cat, jingles, that looks exactly like the one next to Marilyn's post. My hubby is a vet, so we are always picking up strays. We are planning to get a puppy when the boys get a little older. :)

Bo said...

Oh Darlene...I love these kitties! I would have one in a heartbeat, but...Mr. Bo says he's allergic...
Hmmm...prove it I say! ;-) Bo

Controlling My Chaos said...

I'm a cat lady too. I love them because they don't let anyone boss them around.
