Pets, got to blog 'em

Sooner or later you have to web log your pets!

This is "Sam I Am"
Schnauzer- Yorkshire mix
"Schnorkie Breed"

The smartest dog
I have ever known,
with a built in cat

detector (shiny dark
bulb at front)

In March Sam kept sniffing at this one spot at the foundation of our house, and
making a strange sound. We also were seeing this cat at random times in our yard. So I started thinking that we might have an infestation of kittens.

When I crawled under the house ten little eyes were glowing in the beam of my flashlight. I thought at first about ignoring the little monsters. The momma will take care of them, and perhaps she would move them out, I thought. Then I considered the fact that the only life for a feral cat in the city was no life at all. My misson was clear. I had to harvest and tame them if they were to have any chance of a life.

I fed them a half&half, unsalted butter mixture with a drinking straw. We washed the fleas off with a diluted mixture of Sam's shampoo. After a nights rest I started them on the cow juice mix and albacore tuna water. In a couple of days they were eating the tuna from a dish.

Now, I am not a good cat owner by some standards and a tenderheart by others. I
think a cat is a free agent in this world and I am willing to help them out. For the most part I let nature do what nature do. If kitty is not smart enough to stay alive in it's dealing with the devil's world, that is between gato and God. I let them in the house if they want, and out if they want. We kept them in Sam's porta-pet at night for fear of hunting foul and bigger cats until they were about three months old.

Thanks for saving and nurturing the kitties. I also like how you put names on them. I have two cats that are litter mates, Dargai and Whatbay which you might have read about on my blog.

This post was fun. I see now why folks blog their pets. They are a blast to just put your eyes on. I am going to have to blog the kids next!

I had to give them names to care for them (Genesis 1:28-b). So I was stuck with it RM, like Adam.

One of Mt. Girls post "reason to etra" was a question inspired from Mr. Huffhines (changed to Arizona for his business) asking the F.B.I. about their method. I use that phrase sometimes, and she was wondering if it was an actual word. I bet I could keep up at Ms. bd's family pic-nic...on that subject anyway.

GWB, them dogs dont ever mess up the floor I understand.

Thank y'all for coming by Jed's, you know I will be returning the visit.
