Backyard Sweetie

I just love Sweetie!  Since she has allowed petting and fur-pulls, I delight in hearing her purrs and meows.  She, however, is still not a fan of the photo, so I must zoom in some to capture her pretty face.

Sweetie, in the sunshine

Uh-oh, here comes Patty!

Photobomb!  Or, a total eclipse of Sweetie
 
Proof that Sweetie allows scritches...with
Patty trying to pry me away with licks

Sweetie is saying, "Ooh, that feels good!"
Sweetie has runny eyes, and she has a cough too.  I plan on trapping her for a vet visit in the Spring. We have not tested her for FIV or FeLV, since she was so feral in the beginning.  Veterinarian's want to euthanize cats with either of these, especially outside cats, using the excuse that they can infect other cats.  Well, she isn't fighting with or biting anybody; she minds her own beeswax, and allows Patty O'Malley to push her around a little bit.  We will care of her for the rest of her life, no matter what.  The Hubby calls her 'Lady', while I switch between 'Mama' and 'Sweetie'.  Hopefully, she understands LOVE!

a total eclipse of Sweetie made me laugh.
A lot of rescues aren't testing feral cats any more. Some are just testing for FELV since that is easier to transmit.

and as for photos, Twee hates having her photo taken too.. some cats just do

She is a beautiful sweetie! We have a feral that looks a lot like her and his name is Hank.

our feral girl was only tested since she had kittens. but our rescue doesn't normally test either. love that face....she reminds us of our Allie (which much less touching)

You have taught them both love. She's so lovely, especially in the sun.

We hope whatever is going on with Sweetie is nothing serious. She really lives up to her name.

I have two street cats friends. One of them, she has running eyes when we first moved to Bangkok. After dad feeds them for a month they look much better. In the morning, She loves to sit in front of my gate and soak herself in da sun puddle. My pawrents didn't take her to the VET but in some how her eyes turns good! I hope Sweetie feels better about her eyes.

Purrs

Sweetie is a true sweetie. I hope she doesn't have FELV or FIV, it could be Feline Herpes. I adopted Polar Bear off the street and he has always had runny eyes and sneezes which was diagnosed as herpes. Once in a while he needs an antibiotic, but he is fine for the most part.

I hope she will be O.K. She is gorgeous.

Oh, we can tell she understand love. We hope her cough and runny eyes get a bit better before spring and that she has a warm, safe place to stay overnights.
