I have always believed in the elegant correctness of the JIT principle: Just-In-Time. Well, it appears that the animal world is also aware of this concept, judging by the late, but timely, arrival of the next few guests to our facilities.

First of all, one of the 5 cats from the Bagobos Resto-Grill in Numancia that we caught there to be spayed and neutered, gave birth to 3 beautiful kittens. Since this young family will stay with us for the next 3 months or so, we named Mom “Flower”. She’s very shy when out of the cage that we set aside for her, but inside she’s as sweet as ever and a caring mom.

Then the night before we returned to Manila, little Frodo called out from one of the gardens of our neighbours opposite the street. After a few years of rescuing in the Philippines, let me assure you that you develop ears that are well tuned to the cries of kittens. So a quick search in the dark with a flashlight revealed this little fellow:

Oh and I shouldn’t forget to mention the Bagobos cats themselves of course. Having only a single trap at present, it took us a few days to catch a number of them, but eventually we got 5. Most of them are feral and can’t be handled easily. We’ll return them to the Bagobos restaurant after their sterilisation and medication, so they can continue their job of keeping the rats and mice under control.
