Still a Three-Cat Household

Oliver n Me - Oliver was laying on his back licking his feet and I just had to get some shots!

Oliver has been working very hard at trying to stay with our family. He is a very sweet kitty and loves to lay on Mom's chest while I'm trying to work on the computer. He and Chester will often share Mom's shoulder and they are very cute together. Still, I am determined to be a two-cat family! I simply am tired of going through the cat food and kitty litter so quickly. I really cannot afford it. Of course, Oliver is still small and so doesn't eat that much but he will grow and eventually will eat just as much as the others, and then I'll be back to where we were before Smoky left us. I think I just need to pull out all the stops and take him over to the store and find him a home before he worms his little way into my pea-pickin' heart! Wish me luck!

Not at this point. I find it easier to find homes for my kittens than to have to struggle balancing my budget and being unable to afford food for them. I would really like to be a one-cat household and keep only Chester but Misty has seniority and has been with us the longest so I just feel that it's her house and she's just letting me live here with her. She was here before I was, even, as part of a litter we found on the porch when we bought the place.

hi dear alaskanray how absolutely cute. Too bad you cant give Olli just to us cause you know having a cat share the apartment with us, or better, sharing the apartment with the kitty, would be something we both want.

Good luck alaskanray, it doesn't matter how tired you are of going through your cute little cats unless you are enjoy taking care of those cats.I also love cats.

Well, I am a softy from way back and I have to admit that I care about the feral cat population here in this area. I do what I can but there is a limit to what I am able to do. Living on disability is no picnic.

Thanks, my friend. It is a problem and the main reason I don't want my daughter bringing these kittens home in the first place. But she knows what a softy I am! I just cannot turn away a helpless critter in need!
