Mocha Anyone? by TeaPhotography Mocha Anyone? by TeaPhotography
Dedicated to my good friend Lin :iconlirulin-yirth: because...
he's been such a great friend! :D :rose:

Mocha or Mocha Latte [because as she got older she got a whitish fringe around her neck] is the 2nd kitten of the feral Raya HERE: [link]
and HERE: [link] the first of all the 4 adult ferals/strays we took care of regularly when we moved here, and who we've been through so much with.

Her first kitten, we rescued at 5 weeks, and it was sick but tame, and The South Coast Humane Society took it, named him Tea, after me, got him well, and he's been adopted. :aww:
We thought he was the only one that had survived, but at 8 weeks, we found Mocha... borderline feral at this point. I tried to work with HER as much as possible when Raya and HER both would come to eat... but it was not easy...

... and due to other personal things going on, we had to wait to do the planned trapping/spaying and releasing back to us- a program through The Humane Society.

When the traps were set only a couple weeks ago, when Mocha was 13 weeks I lost complete physical contact with Mocha, but both Raya and Mocha have been spayed, and are now in our storage building healing for almost a week, where I've been taking opportunity to socialize Mocha. It's slow, but we are progressing... :aww:
She loves to play with all the toys, & I can touch her, but not hold her. :hmm:

The South Coast Humane Society might take her if I can get her to a certain point.

:note: EDIT: ADOPTED! :party:

I don't have a lot of time, so if it doesn't quite happen, they promised to find her a "good barn"- nice and enclosed, where they are treated as a "pet"- not a "mouser" - "mousers" are against their philosophy.
This sounds pretty good to me... but I have some decisions to make, and then there's Raya...
Mother and daughter are good friends by now. hmmm.

Lin *Lirulin-yirth has been a great friend to me, very supportive and kind, and enthusiastic to support The Shelter Project as well. He loves animals, and he definitely loves cats! :aww:

Here is a feature of Lin's work!



Dear Lin,
I've appreciated your friendship for a long time, by now. :aww:
In our Thanksgiving season, I want to express my thanks to you for everything.
I wish you the best always. :hug:
Your Friend, Tea

I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.

It is possible for you to have her. :nod:
Seriously, it could be arranged... somehow.
We are working on socializing her, very much. :D
:heart:
She LOOOOOVES toys. She is very sweet. She sits in my lap, when I can get her. She is so intelligent and precocious. She is very good. :rose:
I hope Lin will love her. :heart:

Thank you so much Cecilia, :hug:
I am working very hard on socializing her, so that she won't be feral. She is borderline... loves all the toys, so playful and smart.
I don't know yet what will happen to either her or her mother Raya, both are sick right now, too.
But hope to get answers when we go work at The Humane Society, tomorrow.

Brian, your support means so much the world to me.... :glomp:
They both love animals, and they both love cats and dogs, ...
but Dana a bit more of a dog person and Lina a bit more of a cat person...
usually most people tend to lean more toward one or the other. :)
Do you?

Brian-B-Photography Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh Yup
Definitely a Dog Person
We have had three terriers which have lasted a total of 38 years

:iconteaphotography:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2011  Professional General Artist
Aha! The first part of my life started out as a dog person... but that's because my parents are more dog-people and they raised me that cats can't be around dogs, so I never got a chance when I was younger, but other people's cats were always attracted to me... but when I did get a chance on my own, I found out I really was more of a cat person, but I've always still had dogs even in my adult years... still have one hangin' on now! ;)

My parents have always had terriers, too and still they have one now, a Jack Russel in fact! That crazy Peggy Sue! ;)

Good for you and your doggies!
