Stray Kitties: The Rehoming

Starting the end of October, something that's been taking up quite a bit of my time and energy has been the rehoming to a rural area of Oestra and Brigit, the semi-feral bonded kitties I had been feeding and socializing at the New Carrollton Metro garage the past 3 years. Click on pics to embiggin these pretties.


OESTRA KNOWZ WHUT U DID THAIR!!!


BRIGIT: A STUDY IN FLUFF ON CONCRETE

You can find past posts on the girls here, here, here, and here.

The saga has been kind of a roller coaster, and I will catch you up on it bit by bit. But today was a hard one because a truck hit a little calico near where I last saw them, and I had to check out the body a neighbor there kindly showed me. It thankfully wasn't Oestra, but it was still a dear little cat, and damn if it didn't look a lot like her. It was a long, cold, trip home. I wasn't completely sure it wasn't her until I got home, went through all my pictures of her, and could, without doubt, note the different markings on the ears and face. Thankfully, it was not Oestra. Still, poor pretty little stray.

I now have Saki and Tuxie cuddling on either side of me, and yay for the happy indoorness of my homecrew! And Moo and Tuxie most definitively chose this indoor lifestyle themselves without any coercion from me; i.e., they moved in with never a by-your-leave, bless them. (-: I never wanted to have to worry about outdoor cats ever, but Oestra and Brigit are not yet able to be otherwise, still being too feral, so life happens. In a better world, every cat would have a soft cushion to curl up on, in the sun by day and beside a fireplace by night. *hugs to you all*
