Lucy & MacDaddy

Once upon a time, there was a light gray tabby and her badass babydaddy…

That totally rhymes.  Maybe this should be in haiku-form.  Scratch that, I’m not that talented.  So it’s been sixteen months, five litters and 14 kittens since I first met this feline couple.  Talk about excellent fertility and virility.  Seriously.  Now while they made stunning children, it was clear to us feline-minded folks in my townhouse complex that measures had to be taken to bring an end to their baby-making.

The supermodel of cats: Lucy.

Plenty of fruitless efforts to catch the sweet mum (pictured right) generated a bit of pessimism regarding the odds of a trapping victory, but a few weeks post-litter no. 5, enduring some gnarly yowls and claw swipes, my fellow cat wrangling comrade Terry and I managed the seemingly impossible:  we caught Lucy.  Her studly hubby, the aptly named MacDaddy, was also picked up ‘n’ fixed up.  After spending a few nights indoors recuperating in my bedroom (yes, in a crate with food, agua and litter box), they were back out roaming their townhouse domain with great pride.

Now, the coolest thing about these two awesome ‘hood pusses, is that even after this understandably dramatic change in their natural selves, they still hang together.  Like two peas in a pod.  And it’s ridiculously cute.

It’s like Lady & the Tramp….without the pasta.

Check out the sweet two-some noshing at the cafe *cough neighbors’ across the street.  Yes, I just used the word noshing. Perhaps it’s time to stop reading the gossip mags during checkout at Safeway.

Anyhoos, keep your eyes, ears and tails out for updates on this fine feline couple…and remember to give the stray kitties in your ‘hood a second chance at a healthier life.  They’re worth every scuffle.  Trust.

Socializing avec Les Chatons Belle

Methinks they’re getting rather well-acquainted at La Maison…

as Charlotte thoroughly enjoys a good belly rub and chin scratch.  And Friskies.  Lots of Friskies.  C’mon folks, these lovely ladies need a cozy home and they’d love it if you’d take them together….  email for details!

Boo & Charlie

These two little ladies have taken over…

My bathroom, that is.  As Lucy, the neighborhood mum cat, continues to remain elusive (and unfortunately too crafty for the numerous traps that have been set), I’m seemingly the lucky lass who gets to socialize two little ones from the last litter.  It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

In a house already home to five feline boys, let’s just say it’s made the jewelry-making process and daily life that much more interesting.  Or exhausting.  Either way, these faces kinda make up for any moaning on my part, especially as they seem to be slowly grasping the concept that I am not an evil monster coming to eat them.  Rather, I am morphing into the gentle giant who perhaps likes to give one hug and cuddle too many for their current liking.  But progress is progress, and Boo – aptly named for her penchant for running amok before acquiescing to a good head scratch – and “Charlie”, short for Charlotte (my Septembre Vogue Pariswas still in said bathroom with Charlotte Casiraghi in full ‘Blue Steel’ mode on the cover) are slowly getting acquainted indoors.

Licking her chops, preparing to attack the human photographer..

You know, I always wanted to run an animal sanctuary, I just didn’t realise it would happen while simultaneously starting my jewelry company.  Them’s the breaks, yo.

These gals will be up for adoption once they’re used to the human race, which should be – keep your paws crossed – in a couple weeks.  If you’re in the market for some super cute kitties, let me know!

miaow for now,
