I am bringing back Monday’s pets on furniture today because I received a few entries since announcing this feature’s demise, as well to ask for help. I’ll start with the plea for help.
The feral cats I rescued a few weeks ago are doing well. My attempt to get them domesticated/friendly is slow but has progressed since they have been with me. Having never dealt with ferals, I knew this would take some work and time, and I am discovering how frustrating it is that they have not figured out I am the good guy. This is especially evident when I am downstairs with my herd of 5 and they are all over me, then I go upstairs to visit with the ferals and they want nothing to do with me. It hurts.
This is Georgie, and dare I say my favourite. It hit me late last week that these little guys really are not that little, and I had suspected I had a mix of boys and girls….which means if I kept them together there would end up being more kittens. Although after doing a bit of research this morning I am worried she is already pregnant!!! So Friday right after work I cleared out our 3rd floor room and that has become Georgie’s room. I feel so bad she’s all alone. She always had her brothers with her but there is nothing I can do. And unfortunately this now means the time I have to devote to them has doubled.
This is Bernie – I am 95% sure he is a boy. He is the boldest of the 3.
I am 95% sure that Frankie here is a boy (he keeps his tail down and doesn’t turn his back to me so I had to figure this out by touch). He is the shyest but I have noticed over the past few days that when I pet him he doesn’t freeze so much anymore and will actually close his eyes a bit like he enjoys it.
I think there may need a rush to get Georgie to the vet to be spayed, especially if she’s already pregnant (this is all new to me so I’m trying to figure out what to do at this point). Unfortunately I do not have the funds for their vet bills, whatever the amount ends up being depending on what their physical health is like. I hate to do this again, as I had to ask for help last year when I rescued Agnes, but here I go again. If anyone can make a donation towards the care of these little monsters, I have added a donation button to the sidebar that will take you to Paypal. Otherwise you can send directly via Paypal to desiretoinspirekim[@]hotmail[.]com. A HUGE thanks to all those who have already donated via Instagram/FB etc. I look at these photos and can kick myself for not having rescued them sooner, but I thank gawd I broke down and did it despite the chaos this has added to my life. Look at those faces – they deserve a chance at a good life, and I cannot wait until the look of fear you see in each of their eyes disappears. I really appreciate any help I can get, and if anyone is interested in eventually adopting these cuties (if all goes well at the vets) let me know. Thanks dear readers. 🙂
***UPDATE***: Thanks to everyone who have donated thus far. It means the world to me. I spoke with my vet when I got home from the day job and I have an appointment to bring all 3 cats in Monday morning. They will be dealt with as part of their feral trap and release program where they will be put under, get all vaccinations done and spayed/neutered and then I can pick them up in the afternoon. Well, for at least the boys. I have a feeling Georgie will be coming home in the same condition with a belly full of kittens. Fingers crossed I am totally wrong about this. And the vet owner has offered to give me a 20% discount. Yay!
Ok now on to pets on furniture!
I’ve been wanted to send you pictures of my dear Raki for Pets on Furniture – but all the pictures are of him – not the furniture. (Kim: Works for me!)

2 – Watching Downton Abbey
Thought I would get to it quick and take a photo of our rescue dog Grover who has made himself at home on our mid century chair.

My nineteen and a half year old black cat, Jarvis left this earth on Tuesday morning. He was a beautiful and loyal sidekick to me since I adopted him at 5 weeks old. As I was going through photos in between sobs, I found a few that I thought may be appropriate for Pets on Furniture.
