It was a week ago when we heard a kitten outside meowing very early that Sunday morning. Snow had fallen throughout the night and we had around 4 inches of snow and the temperature was rapidly falling. We found that the Mama Kitty had moved the other 4 kittens out of our storage building and were nowhere to be found. She somehow left this little one behind.
We tried to catch him off and on all day and after 12 hours of crying and running around looking for his mama, he was finally coaxed to the back door of our basement by our daughter who grabbed him and brought him inside out of the bitter cold which would be -35 with the wind chill the next morning. He spent the night wandering around downstairs crying, but by Monday evening my daughter had him pretty tame. The schools were closed because of the snow and bitter cold that Monday so I was glad she was here and had time to work with him. I call her the cat whisperer because she's even better than I am at taming kitties.
He has very quickly made himself at home and used a litter box from the first day, so he's really been no trouble at all. We've fallen in love with him as he's so sweet and cute with his 4 white feet and the white chin and a little patch of white between the eyes. We're happy that he has a good home to go to next weekend, but we'll sure miss him. They can certainly work their way into your heart in a short amount of time, can't they? Mama came back with her other kittens, all safe and sound, a few days ago but we didn't think it would be wise to let this kitten see them because he'll be leaving for his new home very soon.
I am slowly trying to get around to visiting everyone that I've missed lately due to the internet being off several times during the foundation work last week. And, I was a bit under the weather yesterday. I'm posting today instead of Monday, as I anticipate being busy most of tomorrow. Enjoy your day, we have sunshine! Yay!
Until next time...
