It rained again in the middle of the night but the morning was clear and bright again. All the critters were out including our cadre of outdoor kitties, most of whom spent the last couple of days in the carport and other outdoor covered areas. Ebony was happy to be able to roll around on the carport roof again.
And his sister, Ivory, was scampering around on the neighbor’s roof.
She has a tipped ear, as do most of our outdoor neutered cats, so that people will know they have already been fixed. The vet forgot to tip Ebony’s ear. Ebony and Ivory used to be feral but are now tame. This is their sister, Edie, who is still semi-feral. We can touch her tail sometimes but that’s about it…she’s shy. Edie still needs to be spayed.
WB is their grandpa or great-grandpa or great uncle or something related…definitely not their dad, his neutering preceded their existence. He just woke up.
Jessi was dumped in our neighborhood several months ago and now lives in our yard, too.
Last night there were 11 outdoor cats for dinner. A couple belong to neighbors, the others live in the alleys closeby and know where the food is, and the rest live mostly in our yard.
The mockingbirds love to taunt and divebomb the cats. Unfortunately, occasionally the cats win. I guess that’s urban nature. This guy was enjoying the early morning sun, too.
If you don’t like cats, I guess you won’t like these photos 🙂
