It's kitten season again but thankfully, after years of spaying, neutering and finding homes for the ferals (also a terrible illness that killed many of them one year) there aren't nearly as many to have kittens now as there was when we moved here. This year only two females, LuLu and Thing 2, had babies. LuLu had 3 and Thing 2's had 4. One of Thing2's kittens had to be bottle raised because she abandoned it on the hay after I touched it to clean it's face so it could breath. That's Kirin who has been raised in the house. So, 6 or 7 kittens to find homes for this year, not bad at all considering that the first spring we were here there were 24 kittens to find homes for, not counting the kittens that were lost or all the adults.

This is Fox, He’s a terrier mix lost or dumped here some months ago. I believe he was very loved by someone at some point in his life. I listed him to see if he had been lost but no one came forward. It’s hard to tell in the photos but his ears are ragged with flaps hanging loose. They have been ripped off. They were slightly healed when he came here and much improved now with herbal treatment. He needs the flaps trimmed up. Also hard to see, he has malformed back paws, which cause him no trouble except that his claws grow into his pads. He’s very sensitive to clipping them and need to have some (if not all) of his back claws removed. He’s been neutered but will also need a rabies shot. Fox will spend the rest of his life here.
