I suppose most of you knew this was coming. . .
We have decided to keep our "TNR" girl. She deserves love and a warm home, and while we never planned to have four cats, I can't send her back outside.
She got the all-clear from the vet, except for some ear drops to make sure there aren't any mites. Her spay incision is looking good, no fleas, negative for heart worm and leukemia. She is quite underweight, but is a great eater and we'll soon fix that.
I brought her into a spare room last night. She is just so happy to be inside. She discovered and attacked the nip tomato we had in the spare room, much to my delight.
Ringo badly wants to meet this cat, and is meowing to get IN. Benny is more or less neutral, and Sadie is growly but not in hiding. Sadie is the only cat we are concerned about, as she does not like change.
Feliway is on order from Amazon, and I've started some scent exchanging on both sides.
Lucy is estimated to be about two years old, and is such a sweet girl. We look forward to getting to know each other in the coming months. You won't have to be cold and hungry anymore, little girl.
PS: We've had some blustery, cold weather and no kittens have come out. I will try again tonight. I have just two days left to try and trap. (My appointment with the shelter ends on Friday.) If I have no success, I will likely wait until March or so.
