Meet Midnight, Moonlight and Pepper if you haven’t already! Above are Pepper at the top, Midnight on the left looking sweet with that head tilt, and Moonlight on the right looking pretty serious, three sisters, just about 18 weeks old.
I haven’t had a chance to get back over there to play with them and take more photos, so the foster took these and sent them. They are still very active and are more social with their fosters every day. They loved the grandchildren.
Adopting all three would be awesome, but it’s not necessary. I can’t wait to see them again, probably later this week.
Two relatives we TNRd
The two feral black cats we trapped and TNRd have returned for sure.
The caretaker has continued putting out food and noticed that both of the feral cats we’ve TNRd in the past month have returned and are likely living under the shed. He and his wife have seen the eartip on each of them so unless other cats are coming at other times no more community cats have shown up. Above, they came for dinner, but there’s only one dish. The older cat swats the younger one out of the dish so I recommended two dishes, preferably in a place where the dishes can be separate and farther apart.
Since the smaller cat hesitated as she came out of the trap when we released her, we are hoping she sticks around and socializes enough to even be adopted. They will foster her if it comes to that. But in any case they will continue feeding and we’ll be building shelters for them too.
Read more about these kittens and their extended family
You can search for posts about them under “Oriole kittens,” after the name of the street the foster lives on. I’ll be posting new photos and videos soon. If you are interested in meeting them or adopting, please let me know! Email bernadettekazmarski @ comcast dot net.

Each month features one of my commissioned portraits of a feline or felines and their rescue story along with a kitty quote on the left page, and on the right page the month name with enough lines for all possible dates, with standard holidays and animal-themed observances and events. Great Rescues also includes a mini cat-care book illustrated with my drawings including information on finding strays or orphaned kittens, adopting for the first time or caring for a geriatric cat, a list of household toxins and toxic plants, or helping stray and feral cats and beginning with TNR.
Each book includes also 10 sheets of my “22 Cats” decorative notepaper with a collage of all the portraits in black and white so you can make your own notes or write special notes to friends.
The portraits in this book, collected as a series, won both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest, as well as the 22 Cats Notepaper mentioned below.
