(Not Exactly a) Sunday Selfie: Her Other Cats

So apparently I am no longer the "only child" I have always believed myself to be. A few months ago, the Human joined a small, informal group that feeds some feral kitties in the city (who are all spayed and neutered and well fed and cared for). Once a week, she feeds and checks up on two kitties within pretty easy walking distance of our house. (But not to worry that they are only fed one time a week! They are cared for every day by other people who are not my Human). 
She has to be careful not to try to touch them or interact much, as they are in a busy area where it might not be safe for them to get too friendly with people.
This is a little black-and-white girl having her Saturday brunch this morning. Her male companion, a lovely big gray boy, is not so trusting of the Human and he tries to stay well out of sight while he has his noms.
Ordinarily I am not much for sharing the Human, but I can live with this, especially given my own origins. As long as she does not get any cray-cray ideas about bringing anykitty home with her!

OMG - your headline had me very concerned, Spitty. I simply don't think that you're cut out to be anything other than an Only Cat. And geeeeez - if your Human has time to be looking out for cats other than you, how come she hasn't used that 'spare' time in the past to focus on YOUR needs? Sharing is all well and good, but I doubt that those ferals are going to invest much time in her training.

And ... your own origins: pray tell us the story!

Bravo to your human, Spitty! We think that's wonderful of her to help those kitties out. And how nice of you to allow her to do so. XO

The Human is too kind! As are you, Spitty. You are too kind: this LITTLE girl ? Se's well fed on your rejected foods and is quite a MacPorker.
And why not, eh ? Living out in the wild west, she needs her food. Bravo to the human

I'm glad those kitties have several people taking care of them! That way the home kitties (like YOU) are not really inconvenienced, and the kitties don't have to rely on just one person.

That is so good an undertaking by your staff, and great news for the local feral felines too.

It is a good thing that your human is doing. Those ferals appreciate it so much. It is good of you to be so understanding too.

What a beautiful thing to do, and doing it in a group helps with the work load - your Mom and her group are Superheroes!

Looks like kitty was thoroughly enjoying that lunch. It's wonderful that your Mom is helping take care of the neighborhood cats. And the best part of that is they won't be invading your castle.

The Whiskeratti said...

I'm very glad to hear your mom is helping look after these ferals. And it's very gracious of you to be so forgiving. But you are a king, after all.

Dash Kitten Crew said...

This is lovely to see. Ferals need compassion and understanding. Strays need help. We must not walk on the other side of the road - they need help. Thank you Spitty Mom.

How pawsome of you to allow your human to help take care of these community cats.
