Only do it when you think you're ready.

Ever since these guys came into my life I've been saying it's taken 3 cats to replace one dog. Not that he's been replaced but you know what I mean.

You never met a more grateful cat. Whether it's food, water, or a pet...she loves it. Her purr is so loud and squeaky she sounds like a loose fan belt.
Mama! Her fur is in great shape for a mostly feral cat.
It's so strange but her fur used to be dull and dry looking but now has a little bit of a sheen. It seems like ever since I started petting her, everything changed. She looks and acts healthier -- still distrustful of strangers -- but she seems so happy.
Regular food means more time available, and perhaps inclination, for grooming. She's definitely got a healthy tummy on her.

She's got a gut for sure. I wonder if that has anything to do with being spayed. I mean, she only eats half a cup of food a day.

I don't know for sure if it's related to being spayed, but perhaps she's still doing a lot of hunting on her own. It's weird that she's an outdoor cat and you're not over-feeding her, yet she's got some good reserves.

She's probably picking up food from someplace else. She knows where to get the goods.

Hey, my sister has a cat named Django.

Anyway, this is my pet:

He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Funny thing...I'm only back in the Hammer for a day to write an exam in the morning, so I left Sheba at home. And I miss her so much! I keep looking over at the bed and expecting to see her all curled up in a ball. It's lonely without pets :cry:. At least I get to go home tomorrow and be with all three of my 'monsters' :mrgreen:. Not being home in 2 months really made me realize how much I missed being attacked by doggage every minute. I love it.

Do you live in a more rural area? I can't imagine having a border collie in the city—high energy work dogs who go nuts without something to do.

About ten minutes from the town (walking) but we have a lot of fields behind where we live and yes he is high energy and Mac has a few issues with walking. He stoops constantly to look for cats under cars if walked in the roads, so it has to be the fields.
