    One of the outside kitties from my parents' yard



    I didn't take this; my dad did. He took it through the kitchen window- you can see the reflection of the window shade. There are five cats that have been hanging around my mom and dad's back yard this summer. One of their neighbors across the street seems to be feeding them, but not too consistently. There are two tabbies, a solid black one, a grey and white one, and this little adventurer. My dad said that he did manage to get himself down. I love tuxies, so out of all five of them, this is the one I would most like to poof. They are extremely shy, though. This one, the grey and white one and the smaller of the two tabbies are the cutest.
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Oh look at him!

    Winter is coming, Elyse, are there any plans for the 5 kitties? You can make a shelter for them in the back yard and feed them regularly -- or rather, your folks, that is. You may be able to find a TNR program in your folks' area so the 5 can be fixed and released again, so no more kittens. Have you your folks and the neighbor thought about any of this?

    The cats seem to spend quite a bit of time on the porch across the street from my mom and dad, and the porch across the street and one door over. I'll ask my parents about those neighbors to start. My parents won't be able to maintain the responsibility of feeding them regularly. Mom is 80 and has arthritis in her knees and spine. Dad is 84 and is having a knee replacement on Monday. I just don't want any of the cats getting struck by a car.

    Cute cat! Hope everything works out and they get fed regularly. It would be great as poster said to have them neutered/spayed but that might be very difficult to arrange.
