My favorite little homeless cats Maxine (the gray one with the giant 'M' on her forehead) and Zorra are getting bigger now that they are eating real food. Maxine is very interested in us and tends to hang out a bit to watch us. As you can see Zorra is still very leery particularly when I have the camera out.
I've started picking them up a little so as to get them used to human touch and to socialize them in the hopes they can be adopted. Yes, that's their Mummy. Even though she's technically feral she's very trusting with me and doesn't mind me handling her babies. I'm pretty sure she knows I have three of her other ones inside who are deliciously healthy and happy. They watch each other through the window. Within the next week or so we're going to take her to be fixed via the local TNR (Trap Nueter and Release) group. So no more babies for Mummy. Poor thing needs a rest.
So again, if you know anyone who is in, or can travel to the NYC area that might be interested please let me know! I really want to get these sweet girls into homes.
