Good luck with your house!
Well, as my husband said, this has been the longest "20 day escrow" on earth LOL. Since we still legally own the house while a series of snafus rockets towards a new Guinness record in stalling the escrow, which has been pending (two different ones, back to back with one hour in between) for over two months now, we had to go over yesterday to take care of the place and do upkeep. Supposedly it will close and fund today - yeah. . .we'll see.
Anyway, while there, this charming young lady(?) wandered out of the bushes and found her way home with us. She slept under my chin last night, and cries each time we put her down. She is no doubt a younger sibling to the other group of kitties we rescued there in May. Their mother and father are both wild, and the kittens tend to need help. We tried to grab an orange one that was sister or brother to this one, since it had an eye infection, but we couldn't lure it over in time before we had to leave.
I always make sure we scoop up all the black or even dark cats in the neighborhood that are out and about as it draws closer to Halloween, since there are a lot of really sick people out there who tend to do them harm - something I will NEVER understand! We release them once the 31st is over with, but I still get the police reports on others in other communities who were not so lucky. Makes my blood boil mad at the monsters that call themselves humans who would harm an innocent animal! Something to keep in mind if you have kitties or even puppies in the neighborhood around that time.
Anyway, she is called Tanner, after another kitty from that house who was literally identical to her. Tanner had wandered into our house one day when the door was open to bring in groceries and he stayed the rest of his life, having adopted us, just that easy. Anyway, here's Tanner II: http://homepage.mac.com/alastorspirit/PhotoAlbum9.html
