Here Kitty Kitty Kitty

I’ve talked about my dogs in the past, but I’ve not talked about my cats, at least that I can remember. I have two cats, they don’t live with me in the house, but they have a very comfortable home in the barn. They’re not the traditional barn cat that most people probably think barn cats are, fairly wild and just live on what they can scrounge. Mine are well fed and cared for, since they didn’t ask to be here. They’re both ‘drop offs’. That’s what I call them, anyway. I live in an area that’s fairly close to a major center and a fairly busy park, so in the fall, when everyone is sick of the spring kitten they thought they wanted, they drive out into the country and find a farm to drop it off at. They assume that the cat will find a new home, just by walking in the yard and saying, ‘hey, how are ya…mind if I hang out awhile?’. This isn’t the case! The cat is terrified and wild, and maybe it was a pet in it’s previous home, but it’s no longer there. I see them shoot out of the barn like a bullet when they’ve come to find food and I may get a look at it’s colour, but that’s about it. I get at least one drop off a year and sometimes I can save them, and sometimes I can’t. I got Hazel about 7 years ago, she came to me as an older spayed female, she was wild, very wild and it took a winter of her hiding in the barn before she finally came to me and let me touch her. I think she’d be happier in the house, but she has adapted well to the barn life. Bob came to me about 4 years ago, he was a young and skinny tom cat, who was half tame but not trusting at all. It took that whole winter to get so I could touch him, and finally when he starts to think I’m really great, I had him neutered! He hasn’t held a grudge about that, I don’t think. 🙂 This years drop off came to me a little earlier than usual. He’s a small young male cat, all black with huge golden eyes, and peers at me while I walk past him around the yard. He used to run from me, but I’ve been leaving food for him so he’s now a little bit trusting, although I haven’t touched him yet. He’ll come around! The gist of this whole thing is…..please….please…when you get a pet and find you can’t care for it or don’t want to, don’t drop it off at a strangers home! Make a responsible choice and re-home it, or put it up for adoption…..because leaving it at someone’s farm and hoping they take it in isn’t the answer. Believe me!

I’m all dressed up for an afternoon of shopping here, but I take a minute to visit the furry bundles that have invaded my home. I want to bring your attention to the ‘Cosette Heels’ from Ingenue. These heels come in 16 bright and eye catching colours and the lacing down the front makes a nice accent to the little peep toes. They fit the high SLink and Maitreya feet and are available at the current round of The Arcade Gacha Event, which runs until the end of the month. And don’t forget about the reward gift!! The ‘Cosette heels’ come in a gorgeous floral design delivered free to you after playing 25 times on the machine! They’re exclusive and will be retired after the event is over. Get playing!

It’s early fall here and it’s getting to be sweater weather! So the ‘Passport Sweater’ from Tres Blah has been released just in time! It comes in ten colours, and I have to add that Tres Blah colours are to die for! It’s Maitreya, SLink and Belleza mesh body compatible and TB clothes always fit like a glove! The ‘Passport Sweater’ is available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Lily’ hair is from Mina Hair. I love this asymmetrical bob that can’t decide if it’s fun and flirty or all business! It’s available now at ~uber~.

Also at Collabor88 is the ‘Cabo San Lucas Leather and Shell’ necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewelery. It’s colour change via drop down menu and includes 4 leathers, 9 mother of pearl shell colours, and gold or silver options.
