There is no room at the single local no-kill cat rescue. And since MK is incredibly unfriendly, don't think she'd be a good candidate at the humane society. I could legally snatch both MK and Cody when they are in my yard, but I fear that would be their death sentence. I don't think I could live with myself if that happened to them.

I agree that it's likely Tommy or Lucy coming to eat. Wish I could see who it was, though, just to know.

That's just sad.  I wish I had some answers for you, catmom5.

How about moving them to Spartycats feral colony? Since they are both simi-feral anyway, they should adept quickly. That way they would both get fed and cared for, but they would not be bothering your inside kitties nor Tommy and Lucy.

I hope so too!

Any chance that you need, ah, an extra indoor cat who is older?

Ha!  I wish!

Thanks for the support and suggestion. Neither of these cats is in any way feral. They are simply pets who are indoor/outdoor and I seriously doubt they would survive in an established feral colony. I appreciate you thinking outside the box, though.

I just trapped Miss Kitty who was left out by her owner yesterday when they left for the holiday weekend. So she is now safe inside her apartment for the duration of the weekend, at least. She was so scared and so confused, I felt bad for her. I don't know whether she's managed to eat much, but she went right into the trap with the fishy food in it. (I left the food with the guy who's taking care of the cats so she could at least finish that up after all her trauma  Wink )

Right now, I'm just hoping that I can figure out how to get whoever is eating late at night or early morning to come at a time when I can see him/her. Fingers crossed that it's Tommy and Lucy, but that would be a stretch.

I wish there was an easy answer for you with all 4 of them  ! Are there any vets who take cats & socialize them to find them homes ? We have 1 who does . If you have Miss Kitty trapped & can find 1 ,they might take her in . That's how my neighbor Marsha got Mindy . If that works , maybe you can also catch Cody  ?

I'm so glad that MK is safe inside now. The fourth of July is no time to leave pets outside with all the noise etc.

I'm so relieved that the poor girl is inside! It breaks my heart to think how hungry she must have been.  Once again, ya did good, catmom5!

Great that you captured MK, catmom!  I'm sure she's much more comfortable back in her own little space.

You need a night cam to spy on the traffic at your feeding station:

I'm relieved that you were able to get MK inside for the weekend.  How could people be so thoughtless as to leave an animal out during the 4th  Angry  (or anytime, for that matter).

I'm happy you were able to get MK inside! How awful that they left her out. I hope you can find out about Tommy...I agree the trail camera is a good idea.

Aw, I'm glad you got Miss Kitty inside safe, catmom5.  And I will keep Tommy & Lucy in my prayers that they are the ones coming to eat.

And the saga continues . . .

Friday night Tommy showed up about 9:30 pm, sprawled out very comfortably on my patio. He has never shown himself so out in the open, but it was almost dark, so I guess he was either hungry, very brave or ? I quickly put food out by the garage where I could watch him. He came back and ate well. Same thing Saturday and Sunday nights. Last night I put out wet (I had used it all up feeding someone) and he was a happy camper, for sure. However, the strange thing was that Cody (who is here all the time now) wandered up the driveway from her house across the street and just sat and watched him eat. He was aware that she was there, but continued to eat. I watched from inside to see what might happen (Cody is very aggressive with Miss Kitty) and after a few minutes. Cody walked back down the driveway and to her house. I'm not sure what the deal was, but I was very happy to see Tommy hold his ground and continue eating.

Any ideas?

He looks good, a bit thin, but this is the first time I've seen him in a month. So glad he's home!!!
