New kitten "Deci" ("Number 10")

Deci is the 10th kitten Debra has rescued in Waverly. I'm not sure where she's going to go with naming now that she is up to ten! Little Deci is now here at The Owl House getting her dirty ears attended to, and being vaccinated and wormed. She tested negative for FeLV/FIV at Stray Haven (thank you, Stray Haven!).

She is ridiculously cute, and obviously has good taste in play zones...choosing the family heirloom.

Pickles has turned out to be quite the kitten babysitter. It appears Deci's tough stance is all bluff, as you'll see when she falls off the chair.

Deci is currently on stray hold and will be available for adoption after a week or so!

Remember Tara, the cat who saved the young son in her family from a wandering dog who attacked? She has won the Hero Dog Award from the SPCA LA. Follow the link to see a great photo of her with her award, and a story via NPR!

Here is the original rescue video via security cameras (warning: alarming bite video)

Kittens and more kittens...

I've been way behind in blogging...apologies to donors and regular readers! I have more to post, but I thought I would at least get the most recent litter posted. This batch of hissy cuties was caught all in one day. The kittens were caught using a droptrap, while mom-cat glared at me, and then mom-cat was caught a few hours later in a traditional cage trap. Mom will get spayed and go back to the very kind woman who has been feeding her for a few years, and I'm working on the kittens to tame them and get them homes.

Here are mom and Lemur before they were captured:

I made the mistake of stopping at a garage sale in Spencer yesterday and---just guess--they had an abandoned calico with kittens under their mobile home. They will call me once the kittens get old enough to peek out.
