I have feral cats in my backyard and against my better judgement I’ve been tossing out some food for them. There was Mommy, Wynken, Blynken and Nod, three ginger kittens who set sail in a wooden boat. Mommy hasn’t been seen for a while (hopefully not giving birth to another batch) and little Nod I suspect was dispatched by the huskies next door. Wynken and Blynken grow and thrive and Wynken has become so relaxed that he’s started enjoying the amenities on the front stoep
Their father is the problem. I’m not sure if he’s this one
now sadly deceased, or this one
who seems mighty relaxed around the little family. Problem is there are two of these peculiar white cats, brothers and they have a tendency to aggression against my house kitten, resulting in
an abcess the size of her head
Trip to the vet later, she’s almost her perky self and the brothers are banned from the yard. Not that they pay the slightest attention to my pfffft worthless memo.
