We have/had one cat. Cee Cee, short for crazy cat, yet she answers to nothing. She only comes near when Lori is trying to type or when she is asleep in my foot space on the bed.
Then we had the half cat, we call her Tiki after the food we were first feeding her because she was super skinny and clearly living in our back yard. Over the last few months she has taken to coming into the house. This one eats up the pets and love. She also sleeps in my foot space on the bed. She often wakes me in the middle of the night to let her in and again early in the morning to let her out.
But she eats inside now and that is how we went from 1 to 1.5 to 2 cats. But there is a 3rd. We have not let her in. Trying to keep her at bay. But she too lives in our yard and was super skinny. But recently three male cats started hanging around and we realized she was in heat.
This morning she came for breakfast and we noticed some blood by her dishes. It wasn’t much later when I was out in the yard I found bloody prints pretty much everywhere. The driveway, the front step, the back yard. All four sides of the house really.
I couldn’t find her, we call her Loli (previously referred to in this post as dum dum). It was when I was searching her out and so worried I realized we may have gone from 2.5 to 3 cats and if she is knocked up we are doomed.
I know there are friends of mine cracking up at all these cats since I profess to be a dog person and most of my adult life have had dogs not cats. But there ya go. We are becoming serious cat ladies.
