Neighbourhood Cats Stories

Post by MaineCaptain on Mon Feb 27, 2012 2:21 pm

Well I see this board is somewhat disused. And if there are any typos my little girl cat is rubbing on the keyboard.

Anyway, Since it is quiet, I thought I would tell two kitty stories that happened around here this winter.

A neighbour had to leave the state this winter, moving to take care of his parents in another state. , His cat, a Black & White named Salem. He has had her years, as long as I've known him more then 7 years. As he was getting ready to leave she got away from him. He could not stay, so he left the information with the neighbours and went to catch his flight.

Why do these things happen as the weather turns colder? I set out a shelter just in case she came by, but she is shy. After about a week and a half in our Maine winter weather, one of the neighbours caught her. And she will adopt Salem if Paul does not come back.

Second cat story, yes we had another event this winter.
Another neighbour has a beautiful grey Mainecoon, Shy and allusive ( I am working on him, because he is lovely and of course I am in love with the silly boy.)
Anyhoo. During the same time Salem escaped. Squeaky went missing. His person was away at the time and Squeaky's babysitter went around asking everyone to keep an eye out.
Well, after nearly three weeks everyone started believing the worst. Then one morning I was walking doggy and one of my neighbours walked up to me and asked me if I knew who owned a grey cat.

So I went back to his house and there he was poor Squeaky was thin and boney. He had been trapped under the mans house in a crawl space. He must have sneaked in be fore he sealed it up. The man had started hearing crying, and once he figured out where it was coming from, he open the crawl space and found him.

Now it is about a month later and Squeaky is his fat and happy elusive self again. I was joking the other day, we have had a good winter both cats rescued and are doing well. Smile

Just thought I would share two stories that turn out well.

Thank you, I too enjoy kitty stories that turn out well. The Grey Mainecoon, now once again comes regularly to my outdoor food bowl.
And the other is being kept indoors, and the lady who rescued her is a very nice person.

LOL, me too! At least baby chicks will grow up and pay for themselves with eggs! Surprised)

You can't have chicks. You have cats.

Naughty, naughty, Dave. Razz

Well most (not all) my cats are indoors. Of course then there are the out door ones I feed. OH CRUM! I have to figure this out

I got chicks once and they were supposed to be sexed - all females, you know. But apparently they lied because it was an even split between roosters and hens. I hated those roosters! They would hunt in a pack and try to chase or intimidate people (my children out at the barn) or my little dog. Our chickens were free ranging and lived with the horses in the barn.

FYI - a squirt gun is great to teach them some respect.

The hens were lovely and so friendly and kind. We could and did pet them. Their poor backs got featherless and bloody with the roosters jumping on them. At that point, the roosters went away. So be warned, if you do have a clutch of roosters, get rid of them early.

I used to house-sit a friends farm when they went away, they had chickens, just hens. Quite easy to tend. They had a horse and four dogd, and a new batch of puppies last I house sit. I think the dogs were more work then the chickens or the horse.

If you keep the chickens in a pen, then the cats are not an issue! We have ferrel cats around as well as raccoons and fisher cats, so no free ranging chickens around here!
