Waiting for my new camera to arrive. Savvy shopper me didn't notice that the seller was in CANADA...sheesh. so older photos only for now. This is a few (!!) of the little ones eating their meaty bones...wish you could hear the tiny high-pitched growls which ensue if one gets too close to another's bone!
Big project: Summer-of-the-creek's babies finally surfaced. They had been under a deck (accessed by a very small hole in one of the boards: how did Summer get in and out? How did their eyes develop?) Well, Summer must have moved them in time, as the eyes were all just fine. Was able to pick up two the first day I saw them, older than the last batch were when I caught them, three the next day, then found none, then got the last two. The Calico (imagine that) was hardest to catch; I moved in on her VERY slowly. They are not sure at this stage what to do, so I was able to just move my hand over them and scruff them, put them in my coat, and take them to the ever-ready carrier in the car. THEN! the big day! Took five of the yes, seven, babies to use as bait, covered them so that the only way Summer could see or get near them was through the entrance to the trap, and she didn't go anywhere near the darn thing. Babies didn't cry, which didn't help my efforts. Lord, she just sat and stared at me: "are you KIDDING?" She was most unhappy when I took them away...I have been sending her images of them happy in our living room...safe, fed, loved....and she seems okay now when I go to feed. Should take a photo of her when my CAMERA arrives! I did mention that Bina peed on it (on the desk where it sat).
Brooklyn and Mojo Miller were adopted, by a wonderful, thoughtful couple. A few more adoptions on the horizon...
Love to all0-...that was Avery's input...from me and them!
