1 cat leads to another & another & another & another

Well, if you have followed my blog you know I started off with one cat, Fluff Puff. Then we coaxed in a stray kitty, and we named him Tuffy. Tuffy's mother is a stray and she had another litter of kittens this past spring in the woods across the street from our house. Since the summer we have been feeding 2 of those kitties. The kitties are extremely timid, but have gotten much braver in the past week. Yesterday and again this morning, I opened my kitchen sliding door and put a dish of food on the kitchen floor.  Both of those kitties came into the house and ate from the dish. I think we will soon have 2 more cats. Good thing Tom and I love cats. We haven't been able to see if these are male or female kitties, but we would like to get them into the house, and brought to a vet before there are more kittens running around.

I spent the afternoon Christmas shopping with my friend Betty Ann. Betty Ann called this morning to see if I wanted to go to J. C. Penney with her. We did really well. Everything we bought was on sale, and then we had an extra 30% off coupon that was good on all  of the purchases.  I just love bargains. Now, to go and start making supper...homemade clam chowder.

I know you love your cats and that is wonderful...I'm terribly allergic to them so try to avoid them. How great that you and Betty Ann had a great day Christmas shopping and love the bargins you found! Diann
