This makes me feel peaceful and happy



By some bizarre wonderful alignment of something, Dustin was out back when I was done work and went to have a smoke, not only did I have treats and my camera but he was into the treats and being loved by me.
I lay on the paving stones with him after I turned the camera off and he let me snuggle him and pet him, he still keeps a safety zone of half an arms length from me but that's understandable considering the crowd I hang with.
The one that gets smacky is Benson and he's the reason why Dustin doesn't sit on my lap anymore, the last time Dustin did months ago he got hit..hard. :(
It's ok though because I got to hang today and get lovings.
Also it's not Benson's fault because his owners kept him in a room with no other kitties or human interaction for ten years, they would just pop a dish of food in and occasionally change the litter.
He's completely mental and lacking in social graces and loves me.
They all loved me today, the best part is Dustin loved me today. <3

Aww, nice to see your gang!
Benson made me chuckle a bit, poor lad being so badly treated for most of his life.

I do give him lots of love and he's come very far from when he first arrived at the cat farm.
He has a cage of his own that he can go to and bug people to let him in if the other cats start to drive him too nuts.
He's actually quite spoiled now if not content or completely sane.
He gives me amazing snuggles but has a chronic cold and snots on me as he clings to me with his claws too near my face.
I really wish we could find someone to take him on a foster basis in a no other pet home.
I do what I can until that day for him.
Obviously I love him :)

Kitty snot! So much more acceptable than human snot XD

Do you see many rehomed or fostered out?

Sadly no, the sanctuary is really the last hope home for most of these kitties. Also we don't adopt out pissers, poopers, or ones that were born and trapped wild though we have been known to foster the above to someone who is willing to take the risk.

Those rules are too harsh. ALL kitties poop and piss! ;)

If we ever get a cat (and I wouldn't while I have little critters like hamsters, guinea pigs or rabbits) we'd certainly go to a rescue place. Although I'd have to go alone, Richard would bring them all back.

LOL ;P
Outside of the box kitties then.
A cat's natural reaction to stress is to soil somewhere obvious to ward off bad things.

I was just thinking to myself that one of the reasons I am more attracted to the ferals is because they are so unadoptable.
They seem happy and content where they are now but if you put them in a house with closed doors or even worse a small box like apartment they could potentially be climbing the walls whenever they see you and/or spending most of their lives hiding under things.
It's like the little soul that acknowledges you is inside this wild animal, kinda like autistic kids mebbe?
Also unadoptable means the option of me actually bringing them all home is not an option so the temptation is gone.
I'm like Richard and would bring them all home and end up in a really big mess out of the silly kindness of my heart. ;)
