Update:

 Kitten update: 

Paula was quite upset to discover that all four kittens were gone this morning. 

I see it a bit differently. Tigger is taking care of her kittens. She's moved them. She's not far away though. She came up to Paula's porch for breakfast just as usual, so the leaf blower upset did not scare her off.  If past experience proves anything, we will see her bringing her kittens to the back deck just as soon as they are weaned. 

Then the crazy cat ladies will step it into high gear. If we could only get that mama cat and get her neutered! 

It has been a quiet day here. Tim has been pretty uncomfortable. At least we were not bickering about what he should or shouldn't do.

  1. Sure wish Mr. Stoic Tim would take some tylenol or his given pain med. Maybe suggestions could be determined at the follow-up visit. Bet that list of questions is getting long. Linda in Kansas

  2. Our wild farm cats were always quick to move their kittens if we humans inadvertently discovered them. Eventually, their luck ran out and mom was able to get the last one spayed and that put an end to the problem.

  3. Cats operate to their own rules. Seeing what a mess we've made of the world they may well be right.

  4. My husband had the same (I think - robotic prostatectomy) nearly 2 years ago. Tim is doing too much, my husband was the same. The more he rests and obeys Dr’s orders now the quicker he will recover in the long term. But they won’t listen ! Although he also needed radiotherapy because of positive margins after the op all is good here now.

  5. I hope Tim starts to feel more comfortable soon. It is miserable to be in pain.

  6. Sounds like Tim is like the Pirate with pain meds...as the District Nurse says, one of these Less is More people!

  7. I hope that Tim will take his meds (these MEN!!) As for mama cat, of course she will put the babies where she thinks they are safe and bring them out when they need more than milk.

  8. I sort of expected that the mother cat would move her babies. I learned from the barn cats when I was a child that wild cats don't want their babies messed with.

  9. Hugs and hoping that Tim can learn to find some joy in the not doing so much.

  10. I guess she's a good mama, but it would be good to keep track of the kittens.

    Sorry about Tim. We have stories here too -- maybe tomorrow.

  11. I told my daughter about how you had offered to drag a deer out of the woods for Tim and we both had a good laugh- neither one of us is that good of a wife! We agreed that you are indeed a strong woman!

  13. I'm sorry Tim is uncomfortable. It's got to be a drag having his activities curtailed, but I certainly understand the need. (And I hope he does too!)

    If the mother cat is acting normal I assume -- like you -- that the kittens are tucked away safely somewhere.

  16. I agree, the Tigger cat is just taking care of business. Good luck with the neutering.
