Dedicated to my good friend Lin
he's been such a great friend!
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.
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...
She loves to play with all the toys, & I can touch her, but not hold her.
The South Coast Humane Society might take her if I can get her to a certain point.
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.
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!
Here is a feature of Lin's work!Dear Lin,
I've appreciated your friendship for a long time, by now.
In our Thanksgiving season, I want to express my thanks to you for everything.
I wish you the best always.
Your Friend, Tea
