Lucky little Cheeto 😻
I know, I know.......
How many times am I going to say the Big Kitty Round-up is over only to talk about catching more cats?
Well the round-up in Puerto Escondido is over. But we did lend a hand when our good friends and partners in our kitty round-up had a mother with 2 kittens show up in their yard!! Yikes! They already care for some 27 cats between their house, their courtyard and adjacent properties. That includes our 6 boatyard cats that we had to suddenly relocate.
So when Mike was presented with even more cats to contend with, we were more than happy to help out anyway we could after all he and his wife have done for us.
Trying to locate those little kittens in the thick undergrowth was pretty futile, but we had some brief glimpses and heard a few meows to know they were still there. That night Mike was able to catch the young mama and one of the kittens. Mama has been spayed and returned to the wild -- she was very feral. And Mike's wife Jean took little Cheeto in for some good socialization.
The same day Mike saw the mama and her two orange tabby kittens show up -- I saw a post on a FaceBook site saying a local cruiser was looking for an orange tabby kitten! What are the odds of that? He had a great orange tabby cat onboard his trimaran for the past 18 years, and after he passed a couple months ago he knew he needed a new cat to make things right again.
A couple days later our little Cheeto was off to a wonderful forever home -- truly a match made in heaven!
The other little orange ball of fur is yet to be caught and in the meantime Mike was told about another new mom and kittens a couple houses down and he is in the process of rescuing them. So it is a never ending job but the little successes make it all worth while.
