New name for Calico

Calico is one of the cats I feed on my plot - except that for the past few days she has been waiting at the pavilion for me each morning. The three pavilion cats do not like her so instead of feeding the Three first, I drive to my plot with Calico galloping along behind my car.

Once we are at my plot she comes within inches of my legs, rubbing herself on everything in her way (but fortunately not on my legs!) This is a feral cat who has had no contact with people until the past year. One day when I put her food down she scratched my hand, and another time she scratched my leg as I walked past.

The other three Plot Cats are very wary of her.

I have re-named her 'Psycho'!

Another shelter

My son in law made another shelter for outside the pavilion, Felix loves sitting on top of it.

New shelter, neutering

Wanda seems to like her new shelter, she was inside when I got to the plot yesterday. 

We are going to try to catch Wanda, E.T., Keith and Calico this week so they can be taken to the vet and neutered.  The Cats Protection have lent us a trap, which I have been using (un-set) as a feeding station for a couple of weeks.  They go inside to eat, so hopefully we won't have a problem once it is set.

Once they have been neutered they will be returned to us - fingers crossed that we can catch them all.

Moving up in the world

My son in law has made this shelter for the cats on my plot - isn't it fantastic!

It is going to replace this cardboard one which is disintegrating

I will put the posh new one under the table when I've moved this one.  If I put their food inside it will encourage them to go in it.

Lucky cats!

All four plot cats were there this morning, hungry as ever.  I think Keith and E.T. must have been sleeping inside one of the shelters because when I called them they came out stretching as though I'd woken them up.

I went back to the plot a few hours later and found Keith and E.T. sitting together so I just had to take a photo.

I think this is the first time I've seen them together like that.
