It may not seem like it does in the scheme of things, but it makes the world of difference to that one kitten.

We rescue on a small scale and have one rescue at a time. It does make a difference to that cat, as Joy said :) Gerry Manx is still up for adoption if you are interested :)

Couldn't agree more.
To err is human, to purr is feline.

Well, I would have them all inside or in an enclosure not as outdoor cats. Numbers is a personal thing, how many you can provide care for both emotionally and financially. Now to a non-cat person anything over 2 seems to equal crazy cat lady lol

Ok, so now i have 2 little kittens, black female and tabby female litter mates, yes that have outside encloser and sleep inside at night. We have a 2 room double brick store room about 3x6 mts, beside our verandah that hubby is turning in to a cat flat for them. It was to be a granny flat for the kids/visitors but cost to much to get the plumbing in. M

A fantastic way of putting it!
