Sydney and her cats…

So ever since we moved into the Villa Al Godwin III there have been a clowder of neighborhood cats that have decided they live in front of our house.  When we first moved in there were a couple.  Since then momma has had two litters that we’ve seen and the number has grown substantially.  Since the “itty bitty kitties” first showed up Sydney was all about taking care of them.  Now, being the dog person that I am that was not happening – I don’t need any more damn animals – especially damn cats.

So Sydney started saving her money so she could pay for their cat food – she even wrangled in Mimi & Pop who shipped over a giganto bag of kitty chow in the guise of a Christmas present!  Now she goes out in the morning and gives them a little dish of food and usually when she gets home in the after school and swimming and Brownies they all come running.  They’re still pretty stand-off-ish but she likes feeding them and they’re all about the grub.  So far we’ve got Momma, Itty Bitty, Teeny Tiny, George (who may be a Georgette), and Popeye.  Daddy cat (who’s as big as a mountain lion) comes by to scarf up the grub occasionally but we run him off when he does.

Of course we had to document Sydney and her cats.  Pics below y’all – enjoy!

This is Popeye - so named because he swats at the others when they get in his food...
This is George - just what she calls him. Probably 'cause she wants hug him, and love him, and squeeeeeeze him...
Momma kitty is the black one and Itty Bitty (the first kitten to show up) is the white and orange one...
This is Teeny Tiny - we think he may have trouble seeing - his eyes are a little malformed...
There she is - feeding her cats...
