Quick Update

Quick Update





Hi there. The human here. I just wanted to give you an update on Tia, and why we haven't written for a while.





Tia, once again, is off to stud! I don't know if she was propperly in call, but it's the closest she'd gotten all year since her last one at Christmas, so hoping that aux the stud wee would help her on the way, I whipped her off to her man friend. As we've moved house, this was a new boy that she's gone to, as the old one was too far away. His set-up is lovely. He lives with two other boys, all separated of course, but in plain sight of each other for company, and all three have gorgeous indoor quarters. I wouldn't have minded living there myself they were so nice! She, of course, did her typical tortitude thing and spent most of her time hissing and spitting at the boy, but seemed to settle down quickly enough, well, stress-wise anyway. She had been reluctant to explore her surroundings, even though the sweet talking lad was doing everything in his power to coax her down. He brought her a catnip toy (no joke!) and then when she was reluctant to play, he lay below her on her perch on the scratching post, and rolled around so much that the owner actually thought it was her after mating!His coaxing didn't work though, that is until this morning. When they were allowed to run together again, she waltzed into his run as soon as his door was opened, and tucked straight into his food.





Neither me nor the owner are quite sure that she's in call yet, but we're hoping that she'll let him mate her today. Fingers crossed, all of you! We may have kittens soon!





I'll write more either as soon as I have anything exciting to tell, or as soon as Tia's home, as I'm sure you'd rather read her chatter than mine anyway! Have a great day all of you. Mine will involve a major de-furring effort while she's away. My sofas may just be hair free for an hour or two. Oh, the luxury!

I so hope she falls in love and decides a family is just what she needs. She'll be a beautiful mama.

Maybe this time is the time for Tia to become a momma kitty.

Love is nice but babies? Too many unwanted kits already out there.

Karen said...

Do you already have homes lined up for these kittens? There are far too many unwanted kittens and cats in this world to introduce more..

This sounds like a mancat who knows how to woo a girl properly!

Hi Carly! Wow what excitement at your place! We are still behind but getting a bit more caught up finally - I promise that as soon as I FINALLY get around to posting about the gift exchange (other than my "I need to get this posted still" comments) I will let you know. I keep saying "it will be this week" and then things come up and I don't get to it (and end up posting from work, where the pictures are not located).

So wow, Tia has a new mancat friend - that sounds good. It does sound like she likes him (or at least his food) so hopefully there will be a good result this time and some kittens in her future!! We will keep our fingers and paws crossed!

To 'Au and Target' & 'Karen': Relax a little, OK? Visit your own local shelter, and help a kittie or six there find a furrever home if it really bothers you. We're sure Carly and Tia will ensure any kittens go to great homes.

PS: When we read the part about "...[Tia] waltzed into his run as soon as his door was opened, and tucked straight into his food", our Food Source muttered something about 'typical woman'. We're not sure what he meant by that. Anyone have any ideas?

I asked because there are so many u waited cats hoping she had home lined up. I am not against breading. It may have come off wrong but your nasty response was worse
And yes I did adopt a cat or two from a shelter and if I wanted a purebred I would go the reputable way I feel asking if there are homes for the kits that Tia may had is a bad thing, I was curious if Carly had some people lined up etc being a new breeder. I wanted to know if there were prepared homes. So this will now be my last st on this blog as I am sorry to ask about if kits have homes and mention the many unwanted
