The Cat House On The Kings

by Jackie Dale

July has been a hot and busy month. As my Selma kitties have slowly returned, I noticed that they’re beginning to do some kind of construction on the adjacent vacant property. They are ripping out concrete and removing trees and brush. I’m worried that they will tear down the bushes where my cats live. I am already scouting out the area to the rear of the store. Should the bushes go, the cats would have to move.

My Selma colony continues to challenge and mystify me. I haven’t seen the original ginger mom cat or her older daughter at all since they all disappeared together. Her son, “Lil’ Boy,” has been around a couple of times. I see her children, the tortie mom whose kittens are tearing through my house like little tiny furry tornadoes. Much to my chagrin, her sister has shown up with two kittens that look very much like her sister’s three. I have been unable to catch the kittens thus far. Unlike the ones I captured earlier, these two are very wary of humans and will have to be trapped. And even more chagrin: there is a new cat there, a large classic tabby.

I would like to thank everyone who came out to our Spring Open House fundraiser on May 2. From near and far you came to help make this event tremendously successful. Through your continued support, you enable Lynea and The Cat House to continue to care for its many residents. Thanks to your generosity, The Cat House is able to step up when unfortunate circumstances occur.

Our Spring Open House Fundraiser is next weekend!! Please plan on coming by to support Lynea and all the kitties that depend on your generosity to fill their bowls with food. We are also inundated with kittens. They need to eat too! The raffle for the amazing Veggie Cats quilt is going a bit slower than usual. The tickets are only $1 and can be purchased at The Cat House office, the Petco adoption center in Fresno, or by phone at 559-638-0300. You can also buy tickets by mail, (7120 S. Kings River Rd. Parlier, CA 93648) but they must be purchased before May 2 and time is running out so choose the method that works best for you. See you there!!
