was the first.
A feral/stray who we left food and water outside
for starting in 2003. We couldn't even touch him
but now he loves attention and is a full time
Blackie. was another wild feral cat we took care
She was very wild and preferred the wilderness to
our home, most of the time.
She loved corn on the cob and both she and steve
would eat a whole bowl of popcorn each!
She became pregnant before we got her fixed and she
made her birthing room in our closet!
Out popped Munchie Boy and Munchie Girl!
(Thank goodness she only had two kittens!)
Blackie was a great mom,
Steve wasn't crazy about having to share his house
with more fur balls, but he endured...
Blackie actually let the kittens feed for almost a
But once she stopped feeding them, she decided to
have nothing to do with them.
She stayed away most of the time, and would growl
at her kids when they came close.
When we moved, Blackie obviously was happiest

stayed with another family in that area...
There was one other stray around for a few days...
an orange guy, very shy, but he must have sick
cause I found him
sleeping forever more in our yard one day........
and buried him under some bushes...
About a year after the Munchies were born, somebody
let four kittens loose in a busy parking lot.
No way could we let them stay there, so we brought
