Nurturance of Life
Following one directive of WMM, I have crossed another bridge in The Nurturance of Life category. Everyone here pretty much knows I am a dog-guy. I have 4 pups and me and that's my family. I just never cared for Cats BECAUSE I am highly allergic to them-puffy eyes, watery eyes, sneezing, shortness of breath, etc and they all make me react like this. It's some sort of allergic reaction to something in their saliva (or so I'm told).
ANYWAY, I had occasion to be in my yard at 3:30 am a couple of months ago, and I noticed a cat stalking something in an adjacent field. I live in the country, and their isn't another occupied house for 1/4 mile, so a cat being close to my home struck me as funny, but I didn't hold the thought long. THEN, a short time thereafter, I see the cat & 3 kittens scurrying about when I'm coming down my driveway. They ran under the empty home that is close to mine. It stays empty most of the year, but the farmer uses it for migrant labor in tobacco season. .I questioned the temporary tenants, and they told me they had been feeding them. They left last week for Mexico, and I knew the cat & her litter would starve, so I started putting food out. I never see them eat it, but it would be gone so I held hope they were getting it. Yesterday, they finally came out when I was filling their bowls. I guess NOW, I am now owner of 4 dogs and 4 cats. My puppies are very curious why I go outside with food and come back empty-handed, but I promise it wont be long until there is some sort of "confrontation".
Hey, maybe the Feline Race will give me a pardon for my dislike of cats due to my servitude to the abandoned cat/kitty family.
Stay tuned, and if you feel so inclined, do something to help meet the Nurturance of Life directive.Filed under: General
