Female, mostly white with calico patches. MIA since Oct 06.

Well, what do you know….

Chrissy’s just been carted off to the vet’s this morning, and just now, in the Area 1 carpark, btmao saw a new one! A large big-headed male version of Macy (Area 3) right where Chrissy was found.

He was scrawny and scaredy and was checking out some food. But the more btmao tried to befriend him, the further he ran! There you go – another guy who needs to be relieved of mojo.

We’ve certainly got our mojo-stealing work cut out for us:

  • Area 1: 2 males – Isam and this new dude (need to, once again, refer to trusty site for possible names).
  • Area 2: 3 males – Benji for sure, elusive Buddy and Benny… idealist perfect aim, 3 females – the equally elusive and seldom sighted Buffy, Bella and Omi

Why the tumbling of cats? It’s probably the spring-cleaning season, plus moving season. Cats are either abandoned or they’re semipets learning new geography, thanks to their families moving into the area. We’re bracing ourselves for more to come.


Earlier this evening

The usual suspects in Area 3 came out for dindin. Marty first.

As always, he was prompt and waiting with anticipation. After btmao set out his dinner, she over to Martin’s gangland, leaving footsoldier me on clean up detail. I thought it would be a quick one.

But just as he was finishing, who should come running but Henna. Of course btmao had to come back to set service for her.

After the two are done (Martin helped himself to Henna’s share too), we went over toclean up after Martin’s gang.

It was good to see that Macy’s appetite was phenomenal. Which means the meds are working – RELIEF!

On the way home, we checked Area 2 for Omi, Bella and Sasha. Only Sasha was there, but we were glad to see her. It’s been  days since we gave her food.

No Bella, or Buddy today, but there’s Sasha

Sasha was patiently waiting for btmao, and as usual ate with gusto. I really wonder where she goes on the days she miss her appointments. As I shared with btmao, my theory is, she’s ‘owned’ by someone woh works shifts or irregular hours. When this person doesn’t have to work, she’s kept indoors, and turned out when this person goes to work.

While btmao waited on Sasha, I ventured around looking for Bella, since she ate at the same spot yesterday, but nope, no sign of her.

No sign of Buddy, Sasha’s companion/friend either.

She’s back, and she’s now Bella!

I went with btmao on her feeding rounds, The young calico girl whom we’ve only spotted once before appeared this evening, in the same area where we first met – at Sasha’s.

The lady of the void deck wasn’t there, and neither was Buddy. I wonder if it’s a coincidence that both times the pair were away.

As before, she was ravenous, but wary and would not allow contact. That would have been acceptable, if her tummy wasn’t carrying a suspicious bulge. She was still as scrawny otherwise. Now we’ve the headache of anticpating her delivery, and trying to pre-empt it by de-mojoing her. The hurdle tripping us, is of course, her unpredictable schedule and the rarity of her appearance. We’ve been wrong before when we anxiously sent Sara for her op, thinking she was pregged out when her tummy was filling up (obviously with something else), so maybe this time we are too. I hope so.

Highly suspected is also her homelessness – she’s very clean for a homeless cat, probably another semi-pet cat, with a owner and home, but always put out to roam.

Haven’t seen the young calico girl since…

we first spotted her on Sep 1 evening in Area 2. I hope she’s well.

We spy…

a new furry on the block in Area 2, at Sasha’s and Buddy’s usual food joint.

Yeah, I went with btmao on the evening feeding rounds and spotted a young skinny girl scuttling about, probably 4-6 months, a pretty calico with a long tail. Ravenous, wild-eyed (typical of lost kitt), and won’t allow contact.

I hope we see her tomorrow.

Yup, another mojo victim to line up!
