November 13th - Jinx teasing us
Great news... We trapped another sick kitten last night.  He has been sneezing and sniffling for about a week now and every attempt to catch him the last couple of days has been rather difficult.  He would either tease us and walk around the trap sniffing the food and then he would just sit next to it or he would just hang out in the bushes and stare at us.  Last night I saw him in the bushes alone and figured I would give it another shot and set a trap right at the opening to his hideout.  After 1 minute of me walking away from the trap he went inside.  I was jumping up and down with joy since he has been such a little bugger to catch. 

November 16th - Roommates
Since we only have 5 cages in the garage and they are all occupied we needed to place him in a cage with another cat.  He is rooming up with the younger calico and they seem to be tolerating each other just fine; David took a picture of the two of them this morning just hanging out in the carrier together.

He doesn't seem to have the eye problem the rest of the kittens have, but he has been sneezing a lot so we will start to give him Clavamox today.  Next step is to begin getting him familiar with us and start socializing him.  If his health improves this week he will most likely go to NNN on November 23rd.

Update (11/21/2010) - Jinx went to The Cat Shack Clinic today and was neutered and given vaccines; he also tested negative for FeLV/FIV/Heartworm.  He is recovering from surgery and is doing well and we have started the process of socializing him for adoption.

Update (11/29) - Jinx is still very shy but he is really coming along and loves to be scratched behind the ears.  We will continue to socialize him and get him ready for his forever home.  If you would like to adopt Jinx you can fill out an application that is listed on his Petfinder page.


  1. How did you do that? It's wonderful, thank you for some uplifting good news! Good Job!

  2. Great work! Was this the one that you said was David's favorite? How old do you think he is?

  3. We think that he is one of Amberly's siblings so that would make him about 4 months old.

  4. Yup, this was the guy I liked... So glad we got him!
