This evening we had a particularly spectacular sunset. All the characters gathered on the wall in front of the house as if to enjoy the glow which (I thought) made them all appear like little golden deities.
As for the activities of this past week Molly above had to have a large abcess treated. She is one of the shy ferals which I've only just recently got to stroke. I felt terrible about having to grab her to go to the vet, but there was no two ways about it - it was an infected bite wound.
Also this week Pepper (mother to Tiny, Ninja and in the last round Twinkle) had, God better it, another litter of kittens. Yes, say what! She is a world class escape artist and has espaced various cage-trappings, two times getting netted (by a proffesional!) and being drugged with a sleeping pill in the attempt to catch her for neutering. Yes, I can hear the God's laughing at me in the light of my last post. She gave birth the day after!! At least this time around the weather is on her side (it's very warm day and night and not a raindrop in sight). I will try to keep things calm at base and hope she did like last time, where she eventually brought the kittens around.
When Molly (again above) came back from her vet treatment I felt concerned that it would be the end of her confidence with me for a long while. I was extremely touched when she sat at her usual spot the very next morning waiting for me to come give her food - and she let me pet her! I was so humbled.
And it seems Humphrey's (above) owners has arrived for the summertime - he looks very well fed and very happy. He arrived skinny and in a clearly depressed state after his owners left during winter time. Now he just comes for an evening snack - cats are clever!
Noona is making great progress and will be going in for her neutering this coming week. She's found out what it means to play and being a kitten again - so delightful. More images to come this coming week.
