Caring for Stray Cats

In 2019 I began caring for stray cats that wandered around my home. I gave them names like Shuu Shuu, John Cena, and John Cena Jr. The Cena cats were ragdoll kittens and Junior had a pattern on her eye that made her more distinguishable. Not all of the strays were peaceful. One cat we named “Dad Cat” killed another cat, Black Cat, so we banned Dad Cat from our patio. Later on, kittens were born on our patio, but they disappeared one by one. Many cats have come and gone, but Shuu Shuu is still with us today, and she is a mother of four kittens. I’m thankful for these cats because they bring me joy and I always look forward to seeing them.
