Happy NOMS Day from the PDX pride!

Happy NOMS day!  We love watching the NOMS who visit us here at the PDX pride, because there are so many different ones!  We have birdies, including huge geese, and snakes, and dragonflies as big as birdies.  We also have some other very interesting NOMS who are regulars.  Would you like to see them?

These are Freya's special friends.  She loves to try to "catch" them from the inside of the sliding glass door.  There's one problem with this system, though!

They stay outside!  There's one who loves to sit on our front door handle and catch bugs on the door.  Sometimes, a froggie comes inside, and then we get to play with it for a while until Mommy catches it and puts it back outside.  One time, one tried to hide from us under the couch, but hopped out covered in cat hair!

Our favorite NOMS and part of our family is R.K.  Her real name is Raccoon Kitty, and she's blind in one eye.  Her mama lived here when our family moved here, and raised her in the backyard at the same time that Tuxie was raising the three feral kittens.  Now, she and Tigress are still acquaintances, and R.K. has taught her babies and her grandchildren to respect the feral kitties.  She still thinks she's an outside kitty, though!


R.K. saying hi to JJ.  Mommy Erin took this picture.  Don't worry; there's a glass door between them!

Here's R.K. with one of her three kits this year.  This was taken a couple weeks ago.  The kits now are learning to ask for food at the back door at night, with R.K.'s supervision.
