Invasion of the Kitties

So there we were checking out some of the different areas of the Mayport Navy Base - Mom had noticed on the map that they have an RV Park that active and retired military can use and Mom being eagle eyed also noticed a big park area so we thought we would go and check it out as it looked nice and grassy. The photos below show us in the park area right across the road is the RV Park - pretty nice view they have don't you think? It must be popular as we only saw 2 vacant spots available. We also saw this group of "lawn aerators" as Mom calls them. We have some in our neighborhood that come and do our front lawn just about every day :)

But there was something else we saw - LOTS of CATS! At first we thought they belonged to the RV'ers but it turns out most of them are just wild cats that live on the base and a very nice life they have too. The people that fish along the breakwater always give them fish to eat and even though they are not supposed too - many of the people at the base also feed them. We counted 7 of them including one that looked just like "Grumpy Cat" Mom managed to get a photo of two of them, one sunning itself on the rocks next to fisherman waiting for a feed and the other we caught catnapping in the grass (it was sleeping upside) and dog oh dog did I have fun scaring the bejeebees out of it:) It must of been sound asleep as we got with 2 feet of it before it heard us!   Good thing I had Mom attached to the lead (she is a dead weight and stopped me) otherwise I would have had me a mouthful of fur!

  8. Our pawrents have stayed at many of those RV parks for military. Dad says they are usually very nice and good deals! That is a lot of cats. Maybe they were having a convention?

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  10. That's a lot of kitties. We'd be barking and lunging all over the place! A friend of ours moved to FL recently, she used to belong to a group in RI that neutered, inoculated and fed colonies of kitties in warehouses. Maybe she can find another group in FL.

  12. Cool! I can always smell the cat urine in this one park before I see any kitties. It's pretty strong. Too bad you didn't catch one! ;)

  13. It looks like you had a great time visiting there. Our Jessy human who lives in Boca says there are a lot of feral cats that roam around her neighborhood. And sometimes chickens too! Haha!

  15. "Lawn Aerators". Ha roo roo roo!!! That's a good one! Our mom would go nuts photographing those guys!
    And kit-cats! How exciting! Maybe that one really IS Grumpy Cat! If you see him again, you should ask for his autograph!
