Hey, That Ain't No CAT!

To catch the feral kitties and get them to their new, good home onna farm, Momma's been usin' kitty carriers for the easy-to-catch kitties, and she's been using humane traps fur overnight. Well, lookie what got in onna the traps:

That ain't no kitty cat! And it ain't a vishus deer, and it ain't a evil coffee stirrer! It's a POSSUM!!!!

I thought I'd be skeered of a possum -- efun his pickshure -- but really, he looks kinda friendly, don't he? Lookit, he's efun smilin'! Momma and Daddy said he was a furry nice possum and that he didn't understand what he'd done to wind up in jail. He didn't get fuzzed up or spew or try to bite or nothin'. When Daddy let him out, Mr. Possum just went a-waddlin' off into the weeds, hehe.

Here's a pickshure of onna the kitties momma caught yesterday, who went to her new home this mornin'. Her name's Preacher. Ain't she purr-etty? Though Momma's gonna miss Preacher a lot, it does Momma's heart good knowin' Preacher's somewhere safe now, along with her sweet son, Abe.

And this is Starlight, onna the three kitties Momma's still gotta catch. But she'll catch him! She's a determmined woman.

Thankies so much, effurykitty, fur your good luck wishes and hugs and purrs! You've really helped my Momma. Keep them good luck vibes coming! The Cat Blogosphere is the bestest place on the innernets.

Love and kissies to my sweetie Ariel!

I'm glad the possum didn't cause any problems. They can really bite when they want to. Preacher is a very good-looking kitty. Starlight looks just a little bit like you. I hope your Mom can catch the remaining kitties soon. Here's some more hugs for her.

It is very nice of your mom to look after those feral cats.

That possum is rather scary! You are very brave Mao. I've never seen a possum before.

How wonderful that your Momma gets close enough to shoot photos! We wish we could get a photo of the gorgeous Lilac Point Meezer we worry a bit about. Much too feral. GOOD JOB Ballicus Mom & Dad!

It's too funny that you caught a possum! Did you get a chance to play with him before he ran off?

Starlight is so handsome! Momma's gonna send thoughts his way asking him to go into the carrier. Ah Preacher is a beauty. I'm glad that she's already safe.

Thank you for the hard work your doing, Mao's mom.

Wow this is the first time I've seen a Possum - we don't have any here. I'm glad your mom bean are taking care of these feral cats. It's very courageous on her part to capture them and transfer them away from her knowing she loves them so much - best of luck :)

Wow. It's such a good thing your mommy is doing, Mao. We are very proud of her. Those kitties are so cute! Our mommy wants them all - good thing she is not close by. That possum looks not so scary but you better stay away from him for safety.

Wow, that possum is weird-looking! I'm keeping the good vibes heading your direction ...

the Possum looks like a goodnatured critter and quite nonplussed about being inconvenienced for a time their in prison. They can bite, we heard once. not sure if that is true.

Your mom is an angel. We are praying for their safety and speedy adjustment to the new home.

we are so proud to know your mommie doing such a good thing out of love.

Purrrs to all of you,

Maybe the possum is wanting to go off to a nice new home too?
