Crazy Cat Squirrel

Go away! We don't want any more pussies around here!

Go away! We don’t want any more pussies around here!

picture dayIt’s time for a Picture Day Wednesday that promises to be a treat on the eyes rather than the usual eyesore…

As most of you should know by now, I have two cats who share The Nest with me.  Ody’s up there on the left, Biskit on the right.  And regulars are probably familiar with the calico I call Pretty Kitty who has come by to visit on occasion.  She is either a stray or a mostly outside cat whose pretty face can nevertheless charm a free meal out of me…

You try telling Pretty Kitty she can't have a cup full of noms on the house...

And those of you who really stalk my blog have great memories may recall there is another cat who roams the neighborhood that I have given the name Sewer Rat due to the way he first made his presence known.  While I know for a fact that cat had a “home,” I was a bit surprised a couple weeks ago when he too showed up at my front doorstep.  It dawned on me then that the house who seemed to care for the cat was now empty… meaning Sewer Rat was now permanently on the streets as well….

The nerve of some people...

So now I have four mouths to feed…

Sewer Rat paid me a visit during my days off last week, and since it’s been an unusually warm February, I was able to sit on the porch with him for a while and grab a few nice photos of him to share with you.  Despite the name I call him, he’s (or maybe she’s, I’ve yet to flip the cat over) an absolutely gorgeous feline…

Show me the food, and I'll come closer...

And just who are you, strange cat? This is my home now!

Happy now?

    Sewer Rat Cat IS beautiful! I hope he/she continues to come around for free meals and can learn to at least tolorate your kitties. 🙂

  4. Lovely cats, Ody looks very much like our Kosmo. We have only Kosmo, but we are feeding two-fout cats asking for food.They must have some place, not home, to keep warm, when it is really cold. I know the house where one of them lives, a really beautiful small girl, and she is aways so hungry that only food she gets is here.
    I hate so much people, who don’t take care of their pets.
    Excuse me, abondoned cats makes this verbal vomit…

    • I really wish I knew more of the story of my two “strays”… they each seemed to have a house that they called “home”, but since they both seemed to show up at the same time, i wonder if they weren’t originally abandoned here by someone else. As long as they come around, I’ll continue to feed them… but it would be impractical to take them in like they deserve…

  5. ody N biskit…..try N bee pals with pretty kitty and sewer rat; they could prob a blee use sum friend ship rite now….yur dadz just tryin ta help them out…984 paws UP two him for it; be blessed

    waves two all ☺☺☺♥♥♥♥

    • What’s funny is that Ody (Biskit is usually not adventurous enough to greet visitors) isn’t the not nice one… it’s PK and SR who hiss at him! On Ody’s own turf! Cats know where the food is, and now that they know where they can get a free meal, I’m sure I’ll be seeing a lot of them in the future…

    Sewer rat seems to wear a collar with a bell- she or he cannot hunt effectively with that.

    • That’s true… though he doesn’t seem to jingle too much when he walks, probably because the thick fur keeps the bell from moving too much. My only worry in removing it is that I think it lessens the chance he’ll get picked up and sent to the shelter, which might end up being worse than a life on the streets…

      • franhunne4u says:

        Only if he ends in a kill-shelter.

      • I believe our local shelter is non-kill…. though I don’t know what happens to the ones that linger too long. It’s possible they do eventually get transferred to kill shelters. If nothing else, it’s kind of like being in jail and waiting for a parole that might never come…

      • franhunne4u says:

        I know what you mean, my last one I got from a cat shelter had been there for a year – and she was just 7 months when they caught her, so still a kitten.

  7. Ladybuggz says:

    My old cat had a bell and it was the best mouser/birder in the neighborhood! Awwww…send SR up to me…my old cat (Banditt) adopted me, I was flattered cause she was just as pretty, all white long hair except two coal spots on her eyes and a coal coloured tail! I hate people who think pets are disposable! Please take care of SR! and the other Calico is so sweet looking also! I’ve got a cat that looks a bit like SR that I find under my porch every so often, he’s someones and he uses my yard as a litter box….that I don’t like (Dog eats it, then get sick) …Ugh…. great picture Wednesday! 🙂

    Aw, a cup full of nom noms…you do have a big, lovable heart. Who fucking knew? 😀

  9. He’s actually quite a beauty. A good brushing and … but there are the other cats. It gets difficult to have so many. Been there, done that … I always want to take them all inside with me.

    • Two cats is already a handful for me, so as much as my heart breaks for them, there’s no chance I’ll cave and take them in permanently. Besides, the year-long flea epidemic I endured a while back has made me very, very cautious about what I allow inside my house. I do not ever want to go through that again!

    I’m betting that Sewer Rat could be a stunningly gorgeous cat– with a little TLC. Will enjoy updates on S.R. and how he ingratiates himself to you and the other members of your little gang. Good of you to feed him [or her].

  11. Kat says:

    People who dump animals deserve a special place in hell, right next to Hitler and DJT.

  12. it reminds me a little bit of a Lion ;o) maybe it could be the new mascot of phenny’s and easy’s football team and then they would win the superbowl next year?

  13. draliman says:

    Aww 🙂
    I hope they all learn to play nice together…

  14. Kudos to you for taking on an extra couple of mouths to feed when they stop by……we have a couple of occasional visitors but I’m sure they have homes – they just like a snack once in a while and apparently I have the “right stuff”! I’m always happy to help out a hungry cat but the ones who truly tug at my heart are the ones left behind by uncaring families who considered them “disposable”…..


  15. What a handsome pair of white boots on the Sewer Rat! Hope formally someone adopts your fur-iend.

  16. Trisha says:

    Sewer Rat is so beautiful! As is Pretty Kitty. I just don’t get how someone could dump a pet or leave them behind. Thank you for feeding and petting them! I hope someone will take them in. I can understand why you won’t. I have three cats and it’s way too many now that they are old. Some days I feel like all I do is clean up after cats and the vet/medication bills are out of control.

    • The cost of maintaining two cats is already pretty high, especially with one diabetic. The cost for four cats…. well heck, I might as well just have kids!

      • Trisha says:

        Right now my pets are more expensive than my kids! And more work. I have to give medications five times a day. And today I cleaned up cat crap four times and vomit three times. And I imagine all that is easier than having to give insulin injections!
