Here is Peppie snow and bird watching the morning of 1.27.15 ~
Not sure if you all recall, I have been trying to trap and find the right time to take home the last kittie, Dorie, remaining at the Kings Park Psychiatric Hospital. I trap, neutered and return 2 of the 3 cats of this small colony back in Spring of 2013. I returned Dorie and Billy. Billy was rescued and adopted approximately 6 months later. Then there was SuzieQ who had 2 kittens before I could have her spayed. I fostered all three, got her 2 boys adopted together and then could not return her after being with me for 4 months in a warm and safe home. Of course she was then spayed but it left poor Dorie all alone. I did post of my failed attempt to trap Dorie last February 2014 which lead her to be frightened of me. Well after all this time I have absolutely befriended her again. Every day I would visit her and spend 15 to 20 minutes with her. With news of the impending Blizzard I decided I needed to get her. Around 1:30 on 1.26.15, as the storm started to pick up, I headed over to Kings Park Psychiatric Hospital. Sure enough she wanted to eat and came running. I set up my carrier, as I have been doing, placed food in the carrier, picked her up to place her in the carrier to eat and then closed the top. Sounds easy, right? It was pretty easy but only because for many months I have been conditioning her with this carrier. In the next few days I will post pictures. Dorie is adjusting but she is not happy about my cats who come to visit her. Now the fun begins to get all the cats as friendly as possible as well and just as important, get her use to being in a home after being out and about for 2 1/2 years. Dorie and SuzieQ were abandoned when they were pregnant at a very early age. I say they were approximately 6 months to 8 months old at that time.
Stay tuned for pictures...............
