Since I moved here, the word obviously got about that there was a potential 'crazy cat lady' living up the mountain and, on top of the 6 cats that we took on that went with the house, others have gradually snuck up here and ingratiated themselves upon me.
Only 2 of the original 6 still survive, but since then, a further 10 have arrived in some way or another. :-)
When Spring came and "Kitten Season" started again, I was dreading getting another influx but I thought I had escaped by getting myself the small Houndo Boy and that he would keep other interlopers away. !
This all worked well to plan - with him chasing off any cats that he knew weren't 'his' - until last week when my Daughter and her family were here.
During that time 3 more refugees arrived within the garden. They are attempting to encourage 2 others and the beloved Houndo is just greeting them and letting them walk on by !!!! :-(
It's not that I mind greatly.... you know - 16 cats, 17, 18, 20 cats - hey ho, but one of them is really noisy and is constantly everywhere I go saying 'Meooowww, meooowww' ALL THE TIME, and it's driving me nuts !!
We are now into the 2nd 'kitten season' and I am digging the Moat as we speak hahahaha :-D
Well then - here's a little depiction of my situation. Yes - they may well have bought me prezzies and lovely wool in the purest Greek Blue - but enough already or I shall disappear until a mound of furry critters one of these days. !!
