Have a pleasant and safe Fourth everyone!

Cat update for week ending June 26

It’s Caturday. How many left before we leave the homestead? To be determined! The house is a “hot” property, with lots of viewings.

For those asking, we hope the new owners will want to continue feeding the feral cats, but if not, they will be free to leave. We will request or require that they keep the shelters, as long as the cats continue to use them. The outdoors is their home.

This week is all about Porcini; she’s the only one hanging around in this hot weather. Here she’s about to jump onto the camera housing:

I was adjusting the filler valve for the small pond by the cat house (and got stung by a bumblebee in the process), and noticed Porcini watching me; she’s barely visible through the left window:
