Five Little Cheddars and How They Grew

First, here is Dancer recuperating at the shelter after his surgery. Right now he is mostly interested in food (he is quite thin) and sleep. He did have another seizure but in two weeks he will have his ammonina levels tested and hopefully can then be well on medication. He is in good form, just taking time to recover. He has been through a lot.

And here is the Cheddar Family. Most of the Momcats who arrive at the shelter are sadly,alone and unwed. This lovely lady comes complete with adoring husband who also loves his children as they all try to sleep on top of him. I have never seen this in the years I have been volunteering there. Wouldn't it be wonderful to bring this whole family home and watch them live together. Momcat would be happy limiting her family to five though and she will get some help with that. If you want this remarkable opportunity to have an entire family, do let us know.

Bath time with Mom.

Here is Mom. I don't know her name yet.

Dinner time, much appreciated! I don't know where this family came from but this was their first day at the shelter so they are unsure of things.

Mom and three of the kits.

Dad is a handsome fellow.

And he is not sure of their new living situation. They have their own large room but they can hear the dogs barking.

And here are some portraits of the baby Cheddars. I'll have to go back to sort them out and get their names for Petfinder.

So, who wants a Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit? Wouldn't they be lovely to have around? And how about names? Colby, Cheddar, Muenster, Mozzarella,etc?

Mom, babies AND dad? How unusual...

Fat Eric said...

My mum wants them all! Only one problem, we are on the other side of the Atlantic... They are so gorgeous I am sure they will have no trouble finding homes, maybe mum and dad together at least.

HI Eric,
How about if we all board the Queen Mary and come over?

We're glad Dancer is recuperating. That is such good news.

And the Cheddar family is adorable. We really hope someone takes them all in. A neighbor across the street adopted a similar color/marked family - mama, papa and 3 babies. So we do hope someone steps up to the plate for this one.

Dancer is so handsome. I am in love with him.

Oh, but the Cheese family. All seven of them, I want them all. No matter that I already have six cats, and would like to add Dancer, and the family. Oh well, maybe someday.

I hope someone adopts them all together. We have three brothers and it is fantastic. They have a bond you cannot imagine.

Derby said...

That is different, a DadCat with the mom and babies. But they do love him since they pile all over him. Being from Whiserksoncin, they would fit in here real well. The Cheesehead Family!

Like Eric, a family of Ginger's is the best. Wish we could take them.

Hi Stella,
I look forward to seeing the Cheddars on Daily Ginger. And maybe someone will come along who can handle a family.

I've known that to happen -- especially with cheddar boys. I had a rusty red tom who loved kittens... I pray that Mum and Dad stay together and at least get to keep one child! A Daddee who loves his babees. Too Rare not to get rewarded!! =^..^=

Katie & Da Katz said...

Katie Too.

Could you get a photo of the Daddy with the babies on him? I would love to see that!!!

I've given in and opened a blogger account just so I can comment. It was the little Cheddar family that did it.
If only I lived near enough to adopt them!
I do hope they find a home all together.

Alasandra said...

The Cheddars are so cute, hope someone in able to adopt the whole family.

Glad to hear Dancer is doing OK, he is a brave little soldier.

Oh Mom wishes she could add to our family, but with our age, she doesn't want to do that to us, but she sure would love to for her.

We hope the family finds a home together.

Those kittens are so sweet ... makes Mom dangerously close to rushing out and getting one. Yikes!
