I haven't been blogging for a couple of weeks, not because I haven't been doing stuff, but because I've first had internet connection problems and then problems with accessing my blogs. See my Freethinking blog for full details.
There are three batches of photographs here. The first is of adult cats, aged from about 9 months to 4 years old. All friendly, all neutered, all would make lovely pets. The second is of new kitten arrivals but I wouldn't be surprised if they've all gone by the end of the day, I know two have already. Lastly are two arrivals which turned up yesterday, but I'll tell you more about them down the page.
And now the kittens.
Yesterday was a busy one. Out early to pick up a mature beautiful, and possibly, Maine Coon from a couple we'd re-homed it to only to learn that it hadn't been neutered as we'd been told and was now in heat. Then over to Carol's to pick up her, a kitten with the runs, and young male tabby to be neutered and take them to Roker Park Vets. All three stayed, I dropped off Carol and then over to Asda to buy extra cat food.
Just before I was due to take Susan to the hospital for a minor operation on a finger, I got a call from the shop. Someone had handed in a young cat which had apparently been tied to a post with a shoe lace for two days -you can see the marks on its fur. Now as the rescue is full and I couldn't think of anyone to foster it, the only choice left was a cage in our garage. A young un-neutered male, he's about 6-9 months old at a guess and he seems quite friendly and used to being handled. I'll get him done next week after which he'll be available for re-homing. Seems a nice little cat. See for yourself-
Later on, after collecting Susan -who hadn't been operated on- from the hospital, it was back to pick up Carol and Baby (the feral kitten I rescued at a few days old) who has continuing nasal problems and take them to Roker Park Vets where we'd be collecting the other three we'd left in the morning.
The staff there had a bonus cat for us which had been handed in to them. Carol had agreed to take it over the phone as she was told it was a kitten. It wasn't, though it wasn't very big either and very under-nourished. It's a pretty cat and would make a lovely pet as it also seems to be very friendly.

There are three litters of kittens shown here. The first litter as still 2-3 weeks away from leaving their mother. The second already have homes waiting. The third are waiting for homes but they won't be waiting long. There is a fourth litter but they are still safe inside their mother's tummy.
This is the mother who's going to be neutered soon.
Little and large
The other mother of-
And the last litter-
There are two more but they were running around the floor so fast I never got a good shot, and then they went and his behind the fridge.
Lastly, the very beautiful and friendly mother-to-be.

That's it, really. These photos were taken last Thursday. The mother of the kittens has a home waiting for her in a couple of weeks but the rest are up for grabs. If you're interested, don't delay as the situation can change from day to day.
The next two are actually sharing a cage and I cropped the photos as there was only the back half of each cat in the photo.
This one above is resting a weak hind leg but is particularly beautiful and friendly.
Our neutered black and white boy here was handed in at the shop and brought to my house where I had to keep him while a microchip number checked out -the number wasn't registered. When my back was turned and just before I was due to take him to Carol's, he escaped from the carrier and hid in the tiny cupboard under the stairs. I tried to get him and almost got stuck so I put some tuna down and kept checking to see if he came out. He did but darted back inside. He stopped, however, just beside the door, let me stroke him which was a mistake as I grabbed him.
Another nice young cat.
