We do love them. They are so funny together. Even though they all look very similar they are such different characters and so full of fun.

Will have to try to get them to sit still long enough to take a few more pictures.
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

so are you going to get another couple of feral cats that will live outside?  ;)
Staffies are softer than you think.

NOOO!

This house has too many cats in it already and I think we can all see where feral cats end up here. ::)
We had them all "done" last week so no surprises either.

I don't think uterine cancer is all that common in cats (but don't know). I actually asked my vet about it more from curiosity than considering it (given the obvious evidence regarding success above). She was surprised to hear that anyone in the UK did tubal ligation although some places (maiming in europe apparently) remove just the ovaries. Interestingly the only thing she commented on was the theoretical risk of osteoporosis in those without ovaries but apparently they just don't see it so she didn't see the benefit in preserving them.

Amazing what an impact our cats make on us. My first proper cat was my 18th birthday present from my best friend and I had to have her put down a few years ago at 18. I still miss her and no other cat is quite the same and certainly not a replacement for her. She was such a character and so much fun.

So.....  these kittens.  Update?

(I timed our old lady this morning...  less than 60 secs from the back door to in the cat flaps in the front.  I didnt know she could move that fast any more.   :blink: Well, she asked to go out .. :nowink:)
