O is for Op. Post-Op, that is.


"O" could have been for orthodontist, since I did have an appointment today.
But how boring is that?  I waited 25 minutes in the waiting room, had a 15 minute appointment, got 5 new sets of Invisaligns and came home!   I thought kitty post-op would be much more fun!
And the photographs certainly are more fun to look at. lol.  Hope you aren't tired of kitty photos!  I promise this will be it for a little while at least!  Everyone is doing very well.
Lots of catnaps, drinks and eating.  The weather has been
wonderful for lounging in the sun and sleeping.



Charcoal, watching a butterfly.


The girls, Grey and Oreo, with Bleeding Hearts and Crab Apple blossoms.


Marmalade and the lovely Redbuds


 And Domino, who's ears picked up the sound of the
camera's shutter even though I was 25 feet away!

Would you believe Marmy is the only one of these cats I've touched?  Of course, he's from
the original litter and they are all friendly.  I have made progress, though, in that they all will come inside and eat from my hand.    Their wild mothers taught them well to be distant.
At least they didn't run off and don't seem to be holding a grudge against that scary vet trip!

I'm doing the A to Z Challenge for the month of April!
We're celebrating the letter "O" all day Tuesday the 16th.

    1. haha..oh, that's not personal..yes, I thought I made it clear that they stay on my back porch and I put food and water out daily...actually twice a day! And I made little homes for them by cutting doorways into two big plastic storage bins turned upside down like igloos. :) (and shh...don't tell..but I even lined the bottom with a heating pad during the winter! ha.)
      But cat food is fairly cheap. We go through a 25 lb bag each week and buying it in bulk, it's about $10. That's why they look so good for strays, laurie...they get a lot of TLC from me. But I can't help it...just look at their adorable faces! :)

  9. While I was mowing my yard tonight a kitty just like Charcoal was sitting in among my flower bed. I stopped and she let me pet her. She was so friendly. It is one of our neighbor's cat of many cats. They also has a black and white like yours.

  10. I don't get tired of your cat pictures...they are so cute, each one could be matted and framed. Love the names you gave them too. Still can't get my "reply" button working for me...works for others just not me...go figure.

  11. So how did you catch all the kitty cats?
    They must of been in the house but how did you get them in the cages?

    They are beautiful cats.

    1. No, they were not inside. four of the five won't let me touch or pet them, much less pick them up! I had the carriers out on the back porch for weeks and would throw treats in them so they got used to going in for a good reason. Then Saturday morning I did the same thing except I shut the doors! ha. Needless to say, that will never work for the same cats again. lol.

    1. yes, the humpity hump
      has gone to the dump
      now it's just cat nap galore

      the testosterone level has taken a hit
      all because of the dreaded snip-snip.

  16. I could never get tired of kitty photos, no way, no how. These are some really fun shots here. I love Charcoal looking up for butterflies, the sleepy grey and marmalade and the domino squinting. and I guess you could've posted about the Orthodontist, and it could have been fun, depending on what kind of anesthetic they used, but when in doubt, give the cat a shout-that rhyme was for you pat lol

    1. Oh, good. Well, I'm a little paranoid because I did have a reader that actually came right out and said she hated cats and I posted too many pictures and talked too much about them! That was when the first litter arrived on my porch and they were tiny and adorable and I couldn't resist posting all of their pictures. So...I always wonder. But it's a big project and big part of my life right now, so I'm going to be talking about it!

      Delete
    2. Oh, I've never seen a litter born, in real life that is, something I always thought would be kind of gross and wonderful all mixed into one. One day perhaps. As for that reader who hates cats, I do believe a little folded over note passed under the table to Orlin would certainly solve that matter-lol
