What we found today

We have several feral cats in the neighborhood.  Apparently our garage is a great place to raise the young ones.  Or it was until we found them.  They appear to be about 3 weeks old. Eyes and ears open, but not long. Still not really up on the feet, but able to motor around.  Too much older and we would not have been able to catch them and we certainly don't need more running the neighborhood, so we took them to the humane society. It was really tempting to want to keep them here and raise them and place them, but its entirely possible theat they are FIL positive and I dont want our cats exposed. There were 4 one little gray and 3 tabbies.  They sure were cuties.

They're awfully cute. I have a friend who is part of a local organization that traps feral cats, spays or neuters them, and then returns them to their regular haunts. What they've found is that they keep the rat/mouse population at bay. There are enough irresponsible cat owners that the supply is plentiful.

Aww - I love tabbies. I have been cat-less for a couple of years now and I miss having one around.
