“Where cats learn to be cats”
About This Site:
This site was started when Missy Elliot gave birth to The Horde. Most of the first few posts concern that. Since then, other types of posts have been added:
- Our cats .
- Humour .
- Health .
- Cat Products .
- Other .
Many of the articles have been inspired from Twitter posts and Internet sites. These posts have some intro text and then a link to the actual article’s internet page.
We have done independent cat rescue for years on a personal level. Cats are found, given to us, or people tell us where to locate them. Even the local county animal control would call us sometimes. Once, when a meth house exploded nearby, a police car dropped off the only surviving puppy at our place.
Any cat that came to us would be nursed to proper health, get a vet visit with shots, and be spayed/neutered. We also made sure that they were mentally healthy and socialized with the other cats and humans. Then came the hard part: adopting them out.
As we have gotten older, money has gotten scarce and our health gone down, we have had to slow to a crawl.
About Missy and The Horde
Our most recent cat is a stray that has had several litters. We got her used to eating on the porch and provided a bed with a heating pad for the winter months. She started coming in but hid a lot and hissed at the other cats. She would stay in for a couple of hours or overnight but always wanted back out. She no longer hides but, being pregnant, she still doesn’t want to interact with the other cats.
She just gave birth inside a few days ago and has been very good with her kittens. They are staying in a closet to keep the other cats away and to keep her from trying to relocate them all the time. She has been happy not to go outside during this time.
After the kittens are weaned, we plan on keeping her and adopting out all the kittens, though we might keep one.
