It's time for an update on all the cats living at the colony! I've had the camera out for about five days and from that and information from neighbors, I have put together a little census of the colony. As of now, there are 18-20 cats I'm concerning myself with. A few do not spend much time with the colony but they have been brought to my attention by other neighbors so I am including them in my project. There are currently nine that need to be trapped. I will move to a new spot once this location is finished to try and catch the remaining on this list.
Let's start with some old favorites!
Pinecone, Fern, and Clover

I'm happy to report the three amigos are alive and well! If you have followed this project from the beginning, you will remember Clover, Fern, and Pinecone were just kittens last year and they were the first cats I was able to trap. These three were fixtures at the colony, always quick to arrive when I came to feed them. I have to admit, I've got a big soft spot for them. They still live at the colony and are still as cute and funny as ever! Fern and Clover spend a lot of time together and with the other cats. Pinecone shows up every day on my camera but doesn't spend a lot of time on shenanigans like the other two. They look great: healthy and well fed!
