FLUFFY- -PRINCE- STRIPER- TOMMY CAT

                             Kittens we raised from outside kitty moms
 
seemed every 6-8 weeks our felines were bringing home or having babies in our shed, later down the road, we would catch the moms and spay them, the dads were a different story. There was always as stray male or a young cat coming by. We trapped and took them to the humane society, getting  alittle expensive with shots and getting them fixed, no thanks from irresponsible owners who let their cats out to roam.
 
New rule............if your gonna hang out here,  the nuts gotta go . Raising kittens also got to be hard, knowing in 8 weeks they would be gone. A local pet shop in town would take them and they all be gone within a week. how can anybody pass up cuteness. and of course they were all spoiled.
 

                                                       THE MOMS

alleykat.jpg
ALLEY CAT

Alley Cat was the meanest of all the females, never socialized, bitchy, snotty and always in the attack mode. She would strike like a corbra especially around her babies, which always became a snatch and grab when they were old enough to eat on their own. She would be locked in the cat shed. Finally did grab her to be spayed. We warned our Vet to be careful and gas her first inside the kennel. When we picked her up, Doc said "SHE'S WILD"
 
Alley cat could never be tammed, at  least she won't be making anymore babies. Sadley, she met a traggic end. dogs across the alley got hold of her. Annette tried to catch her, but she took off, later found under the neighbors trailer.

LENA

lena and her best buddy Puff shared mommie duties. lena just had her babies in the cat shed  when Puff had her kittens. We don't know where Puff had them, but looking out the kitchen window, here comes Puff with a kitten in her mouth across the yard. Guess she liked the accommandations in the shed and we thought she just  DROP THEM ALL OFF WITH LENA, and took off.
 
Lena took over right away, later we found Puff in the shed with Lena all cuddled up and sharing babies.  No clue where Lena came from, She and Prince kitty were real friendly with each other. Lena is still with us, outside kitty and lives in the cat shed with Socks and Pookie.

PUFF

babypuff.jpg
BABY PUFF

Just like her brother Fluffy, she showed up one day, just a kitten and made the shed her home. Word must go out where the food is. While the shed was being constructed, she was helpful grabbing screws and washers, it's a wonder there were not more parts missing.
 
She and Lena were the best of buds. Lena lost her babies one summer , we knew something was wrong when she showed up not pregnant anymore. well maybe she had them some place else. Puff  was busy having her babies. Lena's babies were gone, we found them by a tree on the side of the house. Looks like she crawled inside the bottom of the tree.
 
The babies were all still attached to the cord, they looked normal and normal size. Lena managed to bring one to the shed. I checked in on Puff, she had two out already, and then Lena, crawled inside the box with Puff, snuggled up beside her and started nursing the new borns, Puff just kept on doing her thing. Plenty of milk for everybody, such good moms.
 
Puffy liked to play under cars and in the road. We found her one morning on the way to work on the corner. She was a nice cat.

MAGGIE MOO

Maggie showed up one day because another male black cat brought her over from across the back alley on 4th street and she was pretty friendly, unlike the other snobs.  As she got her belly rubbed, we knew she had babies some where. After she left our yard, she disappeard.
 
Lucky to had followed her without being seen, she was hanging out in  a garage with no doors  full of junk across the alley on 4th street and she had babies, sneaky little furballs, got under stuff and hard to catch. So, we knocked on the residents door and asked if the cat belonged to them, they said no and go a head set a trap.
 
The trap didn't work. On our way home from work, I thought, it would be nice if Maggie brought her kids over to our place. Well, she did just that, they followed her over and got into our garage. QUICK CLOSE THE DOORS. and they hid, they got under a pallet, but heavy cabinets were on top of that.
 
New plan, set up the big dog kennel, put a harness on mom and tie her inside. when she calls them, they will come to her. I wish I had taken pics of Annette sitting on a cider block with a string tied to the door. and it worked, one by one they went to mama. This was the only litter we knew she had and soon as they ate on their own, mom went for a spay. She was an outside kitty for a long time, but now is a inside kitty.

MUNCHIE

her name was Trixcie, but changed to Munchie, she had a thing going with Prince. She had 4 babies in our garage, snatched her and the babies up, brought them inside. one of the babies didn't live.  Got her spayed right away and she lives down stairs with Scamp. Scamp came from Annette's mother's place, she just walked in the house  and thought she should stay there. Scamp was a bit too wild for the two older cats living there and ended up at our house.

BABY FLUFF AND PRINCE

Fluffy and Prince were just kittens living under the neighbors shed in the back yard, no clue where they came from. Could had been mama Striper's babies.

LEO

Leon, accounts for all the long hair kittens, a few looked just like him. Of course he just passes through when the girls are feeling friskie. This could be Puffy's dad.

tikie.jpg

Tiki and Pookie showed up together, best buds while they were together, Spookie later latched on to Socks. Never know what happened to Tiki and Fluffy, both disapeard. Tiki was looking over the box in the shed where the kittens were staying.

MR SOCKS

Socks like the rest, showed up one day and never left. I'm sure he had his share of father hood. He's an outside kitty living in the shed with Lena and Pookie.  They are last of the outside kitties all getting up there in age, 12+.

TAILOR

Tailor was another one of Munchie's boyfriends, his father was a big ugly tom cat we named Bruiser with ugly orange eyes. Clem might had been one of his too. Buiser was in bad shape, all beat up from fighting. We took him to the vet, better than living on the street and wondering where your next meal was coming from, felt sorry for him living a life like that.

what was suppose to be a shed for the lawn mower & snow blower, lawn tools, ended up being HOME for all the strays that dropped by and where quite the few of the babies were born. This shed later got smashed by a tree and replaced with a wooden shed.

                                ALLEY CATS LAST SPRING FLING
 She was ready to pop anyday, catching her and getting into the kennel was stressful and she was mad, at one point she actually grabbed on to the top bars and hung there and everything dropped down. Not a happy camper.when we got home from work, she had three little furballs, not her usual 6-7. It took a few days to get any photo's.
