Welcome to my blog! 8 Paws and 2 Tails is a pet blog dedicated to all things cat and dog related with particular emphasis on one family's experiences dealing with medical issues, hospice and palliative care, coping with grief, home feeding and our pet's quirky behaviors.
Early this morning I let Annie into the yard to take care of business and get some exercise. While we were out, I noticed one of the girls watching us from the next yard. More to the point, she was watching me.
I knew what that meant - she was hungry. Annie spotted her and started to cry so I told Annie to go on the porch where I closed the gate and came in to prepare food.
Once Annie's breakfast was ready to serve, I brought her in then proceeded to get clean water and a meal for the girl. Apparently she was very hungry. She came so close to me without my knowing it, startling me when I lifted my head.
Figuring the other girl and Brother weren't far behind; I put out an entire can of cat food. I was wrong. No one else showed up and the girl polished off 99% of the meal on her own. This has convinced me I've made the right decision to commit myself to the care of these cats. I need to get training and certified as quickly as possible.
