So it struck me tonight when I was walking out to see J working on his planter, that when I walked all the little animals around here ears' perk up--they know Momma is coming. Especially the cats...
And I should say I've never been a cat fan--kind of allergic, but J had barn cats, so ya know, they're here, I will talk to them. We have: Catman--a tomcat who is orange--he's really nice. He'll disappear for a couple of days, but then return running towards me--ahh!. Shady-a white girl cat, who's siblings and mother were CRAZY, but she managed to survive. She's still kind of shady, but much better than she used to be. Smoke--he's a tomcat (I don't have a pic of him), he's very skittish, and kind of growls at you. I make a joke and usually growl at him first --RRRRR--LOL. Then there are my little monsters--my babies.
Their mother, lil sh*t, somebody dropped off at our house about a year ago. She was just a wee little black kitten, and lil sh*t seemed to stick as a name. Well in May she had kittens :-) They were all so cute!! Sadly a bunch of them disppeared--she did too. J in his wonderful steadfastness didn't really say that the other ones would make it. There were just 3 left and they were so little. But we all know me (and J--he's a big softie), and I took little milk out there for them and coaxed them along. I really think its that they had heard my voice even in the womb, talking to lil sh*t :-)
So they are my little monster babies--3 little cats that look alike. When they hear or see me they come running, they know their momma is near :-)
