An update on all this. The people next door have continued to allow these kittens to be outdoors, despite their young age. Neither of them have collars or tags. They’re always looking for affection and food.
The woman who got them for her kids went on vacation with the kids and left the care of the cats with other family members. The grandparents also went on vacation, leaving their dog and cat and the two kittens in the care of the one remaining daughter and granddaughter, who also have a cat and a dog. The mother has a baby with developmental issues, so abdicates that responsibility to her five-year-old daughter. So the kittens have been let loose all day long to get into mischief or die or who gives a shit.
Yesterday, both of them were playing out in front of our house, being cute. A couple of young women/older teen girls were walking by and started gushing over the kittens. As they walked out of my field of view, I saw the kittens run after them. A bit later, the orange one was crying outside our door and black one was nowhere in sight. Then the remaining woman and kids departed town on their vacation, without bothering to make sure the orange kittie was inside the house. We took it in, figuring it was going to have to stay the night with us, but yet another person showed up to spend the night in the house and we turned it over to her.
It’s now 24 hours later and the black one is still missing and obviously was taken home by someone. The woman and two kids came home this afternoon and of course they’re upset that one of the kittens is missing. She sent the kids over to find out what happened instead of coming herself :rolleyes: probably knowing she’d catch hell from me.
I’m actually glad somebody else has that kitten. Perhaps it’s somebody who actually ought to own a pet instead of this fucking moron next door. I hope somebody steals the other one. :mad:
