1. A reply to an inquiry to a DU friend regarding the biggest difficulty that occurred recently

Hey, It is nice to hear from you. The answer to your question depends on what day you ask! Generally, things have improved everyday. We are at the point now where when I turn to come into the house, she puts her paw on my pant leg, as if to say, don't go. Once, she put her paw on my shoe. Yesterday, she put her paw on my hand, rested it there. I am not at the point where I have picked her up. I think that will be some time. But she does love to have me pet her.

She is going to the vet at the end of the month to be spayed. She has lost some weight since I adjusted the amount I was giving her. I do not think she is pregnant. She does continue to follow Cheyenne and us on our walks. She gets very close to Cheyenne, but Cheyenne does not know she is there.

I have acquired a list of the shots she needs, and will start her on those after the vet sees her. I dread taking her there, but the PAWS lady said she could trap her and take her. I am going too. I think our relationship will take a tumble after that happens, but hopefully, it will heal.

The hard thing that has happened recently is that one, then two other cats have started hanging around the house. It is obvious they want to stay. I was afraid of them at first. They just posted themselves near the house waiting for me to come out with Nikita's food. They appear to be feral to me, but what do I know? They might have come out of the house where the lady was evicted. They have a place to stay; they sleep under one of my neighbor's foundation but no one is feeding them. So I am trying to find two neighbors who will put food out for them and sort of adopt them. Wish me luck on that.

The first night one appeared was the night before last. I heard a terrible screeching from Nikita and ran out. The cat jumped from the porch onto the bushes. I don't know what was going on there -- cat fight, looking for food? But the cat was not afraid of me, I could not scare him or her away, and he or she stayed all night in the bushes.


The other cat appeared yesterday morning.

I just can't take on another cat. I am pushing my limits to take Nikita because it is hard to acclimate Cheyenne to another animal (remember she cannot see). But financially, I can't afford to support another cat either. So I do hope I can find two good Samaritans.

I need to run out before it gets dark. Thank you for writing to me. I hope we can keep in touch.

Sam
