Crazy Cat Lady...

So some women develop into a crazy cat lady as time goes on and they are left alone. I, on the other hand, was born a crazy cat lady. Case in point, my very first word was Tigger, our cat at the time's name. Maybe it's because we've had cats since the day I was born, but more likely it was an obsession born into me through generations of crazy cat ladies. It comes from my mother's family, and who knows how many generations it goes back but it's there. As a child I was reading technical books about cats and as soon as I owned my first place I got Mitzi, followed by Jack a year later.
Well now I've been involved with a little kitty rescue the past two months. On Labor Day I was walking around outside and found these soaking wet, freezing, little wild kittens. They were the most pathetic things I'd ever seen, so of course I started feeding them. Well after two months the neighbor started to complain because they were walking on her car so I had to catch them. They will be moving, shortly, to live at my Mom's barn but in the meantime I just had to post their pictures because they are so cute.

I luv the kitties! The one with darker markings reminds me of my last cat, well, the last cat I had at my parent's house. I love hearing how much you're obsessed because I am too, but usually I feel uncool for loving cats since most people seem to like dogs better, which I just don't get. I look forward to the day when I get my own place and can have cats again. I am so proud of you for saving the wild kitties. Haha. I miss you and am so grateful for your picturesque blog.

P.S. It's too bad we haven't been around for the temporary additions to your brood. Clara would have loved the extra cats.
