Good news - Green Eyes

The feral kitten who decided to live at Church House




Remember this little one - Green Eyes? My feral cat who loved the bantams.  Well this afternoon I received some news about him.  The lady who took him lived on a smallholding in one of the villages nearby, managed to find my phone number and sent some photos of Green Eyes, now called George, settled in his new home. Definitely fallen into a comfortable life.

Settled he is,  a house cat, not barn cat, putting on a middle-aged spread, and a girl friend (yes he was neutered and he was bloody furious about it).  He is now living with their dogs, he did not trust Lucy my dog but since moving into their cottage with 'deep silled south facing windows and fluffy beds' he has settled into luxury and calls the shots in their house.  Plays games on the stairs taking things upstairs and then allowing them to drop, always knew he was intelligent.



There is the paw with the claw - obey or else!


Happy endings for a bright little soul.

And a small part of the message to record...

"Thank you for letting him come to live here, I know it wasn't easy for you and totally understand why you miss him"

people are so good. X

    1. When we both tried to catch him, up the curtains and under the sofa was part of the chase. There was a certain amount of blood on our hands, I cannot believe he grew so tame quickly.

  2. Thank heavens for a Good News Story - been a bit bereft of those in recent times. I'm so pleased he has settled in well and is now The Boss!! A perfect life for him - well done for finding him such a good home.

  3. I am so glad he settled in but obviously he know which side of the bread is buttered, and became a tame cat ;)

    1. I am so glad he has become tame, I can still see that left hand paw is flexed if you don't do what he wants Jayne.

  6. He compliments the white cat well. Or vice versa.

    1. There was a great run of feral cats, the year Green Eyes moved in, I think he was one of the lucky ones. Though Jo my friend took on four kittens in the same litter in her barn.

    1. Yes glad he settled in Sue. Looking at that left front paw and I remember how he would bat my leg as he walked past, and he is still using it to tell his people what he wants...

  9. I love that story about your feral cat. My daughter has a cat from streets of Kabul. He is a massive cat, one that has seen more countries than most people, and is now British, according to his passport. Happy endings for bright little souls indeed.

  10. PS, do you have any idea how long it took him to get settled in? We have (had?) a feral cat at the retirement property. In two years, I have never been able to get close. We feed him and made him a cozy home, which I am not at all sure that he actually uses.

  11. Feral cats can be completely wild Debby. I was so surprised to see him settle down in a house and not a barn but I think that comes with being a clever puss;) 6 months is how long he has been with his new owners, the daughter is the one who has probably done the work with him. When you move to your retirement home, it may be a project for you! But someone like Morning Minion (Sharon) also has indoor and outdoor cats, as has Jennie.
