|Darcy & Norah|
|Ginger & CoCo|
I am (un)officially a cat shelter. I added Ginger & CoCo to the family this summer.
They were born in my future Guest cottage but current garage.
Sometimes I wonder what it was like just to have Darcy & Ella.
Both so laid back. Hmm, it's been a few years. Ella has decided to permanently move outside to my neighbor Bonnie's house, again, due to the fact that she does not appreciate the new "punkinhead's." Although she comes "home" for daily treats, she no longer wants to stay inside. I miss her. She will always be my first girlie kitten. She is very laid back... the exact opposite of
Opera Diva, Norah
Norah does NOT care for the new kittens, at all.Unlike Ella, she does not run outside to escape from them. Oh no! She makes anyone within ear shot aware that she is NOT happy about the ingenues trying share the same stage as she, the most supreme Opera Diva Norah!
I must admit, I am NOT a fan of Norah's operatic tirades. She sometimes feels the need to share her aria's 3 & 4 times a day. I am at a loss of how to stop her from having an aggressive attitude towards the "cat babies." Although she has not actually hurt them she has screamed at them, numerous times. I have tried the plug in that is supposed to "mimic" the mothers sent. I have made loud noises, used the water bottle, tried to distract, even had to get her in a submissive position, because she was taking her aggression towards the kittens out on me, all to lackluster results.
I miss the Norah who sat right by me during my sickest part of chemo, last year. The Norah who would not leave my side unless I got up. She doesn't let me pet her for very long anymore. I am frustrated with the current state of affairs. I am LONGING for the day when there is a relatively peaceful co-habbitation amongst the feline members of the Winona Ave. Parrish's☺
