Looks like the cats are coming back. Or at least until I can find a home for them. One of them has a "cold" and is fully treatable, but the shelter wants to put her down because they can not adopt out a sick cat. She was not sick when she got there! Anyway, they are going to be living in the garage for a little while.

Oh, yes, Marc, keep them with you. My niece just had a baby so her two cats are living in the garage... it´not a problem and it would be cruel to separate them... not to talk about putting one of them down cause she has a cold... :stars:

I've adopted several cats from the humane society over the years, and every single one of them has had a "cold" to overcome when I got them home. They pick it up in those facilities, like kennel cough, only it's cats.

Well, they have moved in the garage. It only cost me $230.00 to get them back from the shelter and another $50.00 for a new cat box, sand and a scratching thing. I had the foresight to save their food and dishes. I am glad to have them back. I think that they will be happier when we move to our house, whenever and where ever that is.

I would never put an animal down just for the sake of convenience.

Here's little interlude:

Cat Haiku

The food in my bowl

Is old, and more to the point

Contains no tuna.

----

So you want to play.

Will I claw at dancing string?

Your ankle is closer.

----

There's no dignity

In being sick - which is why

I don't tell you where.

----

Seeking solitude

I am locked in the closet.

For once I need you.

----

Tiny can, dumped in

Plastic bowl. Presentation,

One star; service: none.

----

Am I in your way?

You seem to have it backwards:

This pillow is taken.

----

Your mouth is moving;

Up and down, emitting noise.

I've lost interest.

----

The dog wags his tail,

Seeking approval. See mine?

Different message.

----

My brain: walnut-sized.

Yours: largest among primates.

Yet, who leaves for work?

----

Most problems can be

Ignored. The more difficult

Ones can be slept through.

----

My affection is conditional.

Don't stand up,

It's your lap I love.

----

Cats can't steal the breath

Of children. But if my tail's

Pulled again, I'll learn.

----

I don't mind being

Teased, any more than you mind

A skin graft or two.

----

So you call this thing

Your "cat carrier." I call

These my "blades of death."

----

Toy mice, dancing yarn

Meowing sounds. I'm convinced:

You're an idiot.
