ACK !!! NOT MORE CATS !!!!!

Well - I'll be darned...... Don't you just hate it when a cunning plan totally backfires ?!!!
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. !! 

As for Houndo Boy - well, he's just crashed out in his dog bed whilst it is presently 'cat free' and he CAN get in it LoL  :-D

  2. Oh so many cats!
    Can I came and play with them?
    oh cats everywhere!
    I just Love them!
    my cats are also in meowing stage.
    Especially Coffee,it's meow in the bathroom,meow in the closet,meow in the kitchen,meow in my craft room!
    It's meow everywhere, because she is only cat that I dont want to let out by herself.
    This two are got used to be out,but Coffee is on supervision when she is out.
    Oh my what a long post from me :)
    But my allergies appear if I'm too long with cats.
    I love them too much so that a little allergic reaction will not kill me.
    I hope: D
