A new addition


The humans finally succeeded in trapping E-kitty's not-so-small kitten. He's been living outside for the last year or so and has been a regular visitor to our porch feeding station. The humans kept trying to trap him, but he'd just swipe the tuna and take off. We finally got him Sunday night and off he went on Monday for his neuter and vaccination session. He came home on Monday night and has been recovering downstairs in a big dog crate. While not thrilled to be inside and confined, he is loving the regular meals. He's still quite scared and probably a bit cheesed off about losing the family jewels, but we think he'll come around. His name is Munch (after the Law and Order character). We have a detective theme going with the cats in the house. Anyway, there is always something going on at Hound & Coon HQ. Must nap to recover from all the activity. Happily, the morning Coon-cat smack-downs have stopped for the moment. Paws crossed.

That cat looks scary to me. We have a new puppy here at the kampground. Her name is Toni and the rest of us dogs find her to be annoying. Gramma says that we will all be best friends soon. I don't believe her! I hope your kitty will be well soon and able to be out of the cage. I had the same surgical procedure, so I can feel for him!

Good luck! I haven't met Munch yet. E-kitty was not amused when she saw him. Baby steps...

Wow, its so strange to think he's been with us for a month. He has evolved from a scared hissing scraggly cat to a beautiful happy cat. Ilonka, you have done well, you have a good and kind soul and it shows.
