Ugh don't get me started on the cats at Kevin's farm... Kevin's mother is convinced that 'she likes cats' and so feeds the feral cats that show up on the farm. As a result, there are LOTS (50 or more) that hang around their farm. People keep giving her cats... nice, sweet, indoor cats that don't have a clue and either get killed in a fight with the feral cats, run over by farm machinery, or dying slowly of the nasty diseases that run rampant in the wild cats. After popping out a few litters of disease-ridden kittens, of course.

It makes me SICK. All of our cats (ever since we got our own house) have been rescued from that farm... I would take more, but I just can't. The thing I can't understand is, this woman says she LIKES cats.

They used to have a dog and it spent it's ENTIRE LIFE living on a short chain. It was NEVER let off. They've talked about getting another one and I just keep praying they don't.

We've offered to take at least some of them and get them spayed or neutered, but she can't understand why on earth we would think kittens are a bad thing. Besides... "the grandchildren like kittens!" Um... how about we get the grandchildren a cat that will actually live to reach its first birthday?

Oh those poor cats. I love kittens too but I like ones that are alive and not sickly. Luckily my part of family that has animals takes care of them. Some hate animals so they just don't have them. But some are still crazy lol.

Our rescue babies... because I can never pass up an opportunity to show off my cats.

Katie is the grey and white old girl (we're guessing she's 14-15 years old, she's been with us for 8 years) - she was an indoor cat that had never gone outside, and was left at the farm "because farm cats are happy cats, right?" She crawled up into an old playhouse outside and wouldn't come out and was slowly starving to death. The moment we brought her into our house, you could see how relieved she was to be in a house again and has absolutely NO desire to ever go outside again.

Amy (black) and Fry (orange) are full brother and sister, though you wouldn't know it - Amy is 7 pounds and Fry is 13. There were two other kittens in their litter but we just couldn't take any more than two. They are two years old this fall.

Amy is SUCH a character... I have never met a cat as talkative as her. When I went to the vet clinic to pick her up after being spayed, they were saying "Wow, yeah, she's REALLY upset and must REALLY want to go home!" and I laughed and said "well, she might be upset, but she talks like that all the time!"

She's our "bonus cat" - we were originally only going to take one kitten (Fry, because I had an orange boy when I was little and when I heard there was an orange kitten at the farm I just had to take him) but Amy practically jumped into the carrier so we got her too.

Did you know that black cats are much less likely to get adopted? That makes me sad - I think we're always going to have a black cat now!
