I noticed shortly after I freaked out about Snowy, that Charlie's nose looked really similar. Under the circumstances, it didn't bring the relief that it might have. These cats are friends, and they don't fight. Poor Charley was violated by his previous family and declawed, so he isn't even able to scratch. Snowden never fights with anyone--ever. I am 100% certain their bloody noses were not caused by a fight. Maybe they got into something that scraped their noses; Maybe while outside in their cat enclosure a small animal swiped at their noses; I truly have no idea. I've spent the last week watching them and examining everything in our environment, and I still have no winning theories on the bloody noses. They're almost healed up now, and both cats are perfectly fine otherwise. It's always very disconcerting to me when something like this happens, and I'm unable to figure it out.

Daffy and Tulip (mother and daughter) are tiny cats with giant personalities, and they've settled in without any fights or issues with the other cats. More on Daffy and Tulip later... I've never had such a hard time getting a decent picture as I have with these two. I have taken hundreds of pictures, and this is the best I've managed to get so far.

As of today, I have a young, sweet feral cat living in a large dog cage in my house until her spay appointment Thursday morning. She showed up about a month ago, looking tiny, scrawny, and scared to death, and has been eating here and living in our (heated) garage. She made friends with my "pet" feral cat of almost three years, Sashi, which I was pretty happy about until I saw them engaged in coitus in my driveway. I have been unable to get near Sashi (or trap him), but he lives on our property and comes to the door every day for food. I'm STILL trying to trap him for a neuter, but he's a clever cat. I'm thrilled that I have her safely in the house and will not have to deal with 6-7 kittens in a few weeks! I'd love to keep her, of course, but unless I'm able to find a home, she will be released back outside after her spay, where I will continue to care for as well as one can care for an outside cat who's under constant threat and risk. :(
