My Colony!

We have a a few acres of heaven in Oregon, including a large field with rabbits, gophers, and lots of other critters.


I called Meow Village and they came out to my house and surveyed the land.

They agreed that this is the perfect spot for my new colony of kitties.

I don't breed them so its not a "cattery."
These cats are wild and if taken to a shelter, they would be killed. They are fixed so they can't breed.
TNR programs are a very humane form of animal control. (see links below.)

No animal is killed.

In fact, these sweet kitties now have a home and a job guarding our fields and gardens from mice.
Its an organic form of pest control and hopefully next year all the mice won't beat us to the strawberries.



Here is Leif and Kal'el building the kitty play house.











This is where they will live while they get acclimated to their new home.
Our cat Tristan is testing it out.










Three new kitties just came today!!!!

Kal'el and Leif had fun naming them: Midnight, Man Hunter, and Firefly.








This was Tristan's reaction to the new cats. It gets funny right at :45 sec.
