So where have I been? I’m sorry I haven’t been around, but things have been busy, busy, busy. Between work and making sure my daughter reaches her goal of graduating high school, I’ve been a bit preoccupied. Not to mention the third tiny, insey whinsey little issue of pregnant cats and a deranged wife.
I’ve explained our family issue of the numerous cats that have decided to take over my property before so I won’t revisit. However, there is something you need to know about feral cats. If they are female? They somehow become pregnant. Don’t ask me how, this is NOT a kitty porn post.
So somehow, we had 4 female cats get pregnant within weeks of each other (sigh). Funny thing about pregnant cats? They suddenly become a lot less feral if they are used to you.
Because of this fact, my wife decided that to get rid of all the kittens, she would need to socialize them. To do that, she needed to know where they were born. Feral cats are funny about letting you know where they hide their kittens at. I guess they think, despite the fact you have been nice to THEM, you will eat them. In my wife’s quest to get rid of kittens (mhm, like I was buying into that story), she waiting until the cats were as big around as pumpkins, and then GOT THEM IN THE HOUSE.
The result? 15 kittens. In. My. House.
Tripping on kittens. Kittens climbing my legs. Kittens knocking things over. Kittens GETTING ON MY LAST NERVE.
If I was a James Bond villain, my name would be Kitteh Galore. It’s HORRIBLE.
Last night, I was trying to go to sleep and one of them decided to climb the bed and attack various parts of my body even though I wasn’t moving around.
Oh the agony!
Needless to say, as their age is quickly approaching the “kick ‘em out the door” time, I’m SO ready for these balls of fur to go away.
There is light at the end of the tunnel though. We have a number of people already speaking for a portion of the kittens. But I need MORE PEOPLE TO TAKE THEM. Also, I saw this advertisement for this device you put in your yard that keeps animals away from it. Anyone know if these devices work? I’m ready to invest!
