OK, maybe the title is misleading. 'Working' is defined here as being good foot warmers, bookends, and quilt testers! The pet population at our house is steady at 2 and 1/2 cats. The two are Henry, a large ginger male who is the pin-up cat on http://www.peppercory.com/ and Miz Bamboo. Here's Boo sitting on my truck.
The 1/2 is Callie, a formerly completely feral cat who lives under our boat but allows us to feed her. Sorry no picture yet-she's very shy! Last fall Callie presented us with four calico (all female) kittens and moved under our neighor's house where the kittens proceeded to tear up the insulation. A wonderful organization, the Beaufort Cat Project, helped us deal with the wild family. They came and trapped (over the course of a week) all four kittens and eventually Mama Callie. Everybody got shots and Callie was spayed. While Callie came back to us, all four kittens found good homes. The people at Beaufort Cats were great and here's their website http://www.beaufortcats.com .
