Allie-versary


Seven years ago we caught this girl

and her kittens

kept them crated for several weeks in our entryway

Yep - that is Allie and her kittens. Amazing that is has been that long. We leave our garage door up and she still comes and goes. Mom doesn't see her as often in the summer when the weather is nice, but food, water and shelter are always available to her. Since the vet thought she was about 2 when she was spayed, that would make her about 9 years old.

While mom has never gotten to pet her, we hope she knows she is loved.

  1. Awww, Allie, you're awfully lucky to have such a wonderful human to look out for you.

    We, too, hope she knows she's loved.

  2. What a good feeling that must have been, getting all of those cats. And I am sure Allie knows where to go for food and care. A little security to an outsider-cat means a great deal. (And my outsider-cats don't show up much during the warm months; a friend suggested they go to their summer places in the country.)

  3. Thank you for taking care of her over the long term, which is not an easy decision to make. With more amenable weather and temperatures cats don't have as great a need for shelter in summer, and with other prey around and longer days, they don't have to hurry to the food bowl. Even an outdoor cat needs environmental enrichment in the form of a little change now and then.

  5. It is wonderful that she is continuing to do well outside. I'm sure you wish it weren't so, but I'm sure she knows that she has a safe place with you.

  8. Allie, you are one lucky girl. We have a cat like that that we call Queen Mom. She is the Mom of three of the cats here and the rest of her children have gone over the bridge. I can't touch her either but she very happily stays in the house.
