    Is it a Bad Cats?

    #4 2 years ago

    That your cat or was it a transported pin with cats inside?

    #5 2 years ago

    Opened up the shop this morning to what looked like a horrible crime scene. Blood, poop, urine all over one of my work tables. Tools, parts, materials soaked in nastyniess. NO PIX of this though, way too gross.

    Went searching for the victim(s) heard some very soft meowing sounds....

    #6 2 years ago

    Well, at least you won’t have any rodent issues

    #7 2 years ago

    So many questions.... was the door open? Was the head off? Did the cat pick the lock?

    We need answers!

    #8 2 years ago

    This is a feral cat that we feed that roams around the property snagging rodents for us. She was visited by a very large orange and white cat a little while back. I assume thats when the shenanigans occured.

    #9 2 years ago

    The door was closed this morning. She must have snuck in before i locked up last night. The coin door was off to be restored.

    Be nice to the kittens and they will become domestic. Good luck!

    #11 2 years ago

    Can anyone guess what machine this is? Its not a Bad Cats but that would have been pretty funny.

    So the cat crawled through the coin door and into the bottom of cabinet....cool

    It's a stern.

    #15 2 years ago

    We tried to grab the kittens but the mom hissed at us. She finally ran out of the shop and we were able to retrieve them. We set up a little shelter with a soft bed, food and placed a huge storage bin over the top with a hole cut out for her to get in. Placed this behind the shop and out of the way. She finally came back to find her kittens. Then proceeded to pull them out 1 by one and hide them in the bushes We tried. Unfortunately they will most likely become snacks for the local coyotes.

    Best of luck to the kitty and you. I had a similar situation happen about 10 years ago and had to bottle feed the kittens to health for weeks because the mother cat wouldn't let them nurse after me touching them. What a chore that was!
    I ended up saving them all and took them to the local shelter. 8 weeks later I checked in and they said they were too feral to adopt and they were scheduled to be euthanized. I ended up taking all 6 back (after paying mandatory spay and neutering fees) and getting them homes at a couple of local horse ranches.
    I'm not sure how long they lasted with the fires and coyotes.....but I feel I had to do the right thing.

    Heck, I like even feral animals better than most people.

    How the hell were they too feral when they were newborn and bottle fed by hand? I believe you and all, I just don't get the shelters response.

    You’re a good man, most people would throw in the towel.

    #29 2 years ago

    Your missing F5, and the drop target reset coil looks toasted. Ohhh wait... now I see there's a cat in there!

    #30 2 years ago

    It's gotta be Cheetah, doesn't it?
    I mean, what other game would cat mom hide in?

    My wife calls it "Nature VS Nurture" Sometimes the bloodline is so feral, they just don't domesticate well. Probably didn't help to be taken to the shelter and all. I should have just kept them until they were older and done it all myself. I learned a lot from that experience....

    #32 2 years ago

    It’s not Cheetah.

    #33 2 years ago

    It’s not Big Game or Quicksilver

    #34 2 years ago

    The cabinet looks blue to me. Seawitch or Stargazer?

    In my experience bottle fed kittens can be some of the wildest. . . its almost like not having a mother to raise them lets the instincts go wild.

    #35 2 years ago

    Close enough.

    There's a "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" joke in there somewhere.

    Now if you have a MouseTrap video game , you should check in that one.
