On Tuesday night Daddy had to bring some supplies to the Cat House. When he got there and was putting away some stuff, one of the volunteers came rushing in! She had a kitten in her hands, a tiny kitten. While walking one of the old chihuahas that lives at the cat house, she heard a mewing tiny urgent sound...and it was coming from a person around the corners yard. She went into the yard and saw a bucket of water with a tiny kitten in it! She scooped him out and put him in her shirt and then took him back to the cat house.
The little kitten is about 5 weeks old. He was very friendly, though shivering from his ordeal.
Daddy made some calls, and he and mommy took the tiny kitten-now named Moses by his rescuer-to meet the other rescue person who would take him out to the rescue's shelter. Since he is so tiny, he's not yet ready to go for adoption, but mommy said that he seemed just fine, very active, friendly, affectionate and playful. He already has sharp little claws and teeth.
Mommy and Daddy would have kept him, as would his rescuer, but all of them are up to their limit (I said, Mommy dear, he will get a wonderful home but it wouldn't be fair to us here).
I know mommy and daddy are sad, but I know also as a cat who has a great deal of knowledge that being he's very cute, he'll get a great home.
I'm so proud of my daddy, and of the lady who volunteers at the rescue! Do you know shes in her 70s, and still wallks over 2 bridges to go and volunteer there and has been doing that for over 8 years?
Daddy felt it was best the tiny one go to the 'main' shelter where he could get more exposure. But I know that he is still missing him.
I had to nuzzle him this morning and 'mrew?' to him extra softly.
Thank you from all the goodness of Catness!

Ceiling Cat bless yer daddy ana lady fur he'pin dis lil kitten!
the blessings of st francis to your dad and the rescuers bella, what a pawsum thing to do.....sure your mom and dad are sad; because they have compassion; but your dad's right ....being a wee kitty will give him a better chance at finding a forever loving home; not that seniors don't deserve same, but you know what I mean...how are YOU feeling by the way; I made a long distance call this morning to a certain "establishment" you all know so well; let's just say O'ruff better NOT lose an eye....hugs girl....dai$y
Ruffy is scared! He's a big mushy cat,really. Nothing to his bravado at all.
Ruffy got a scratch on his eye. Because of the FIV+ it's not healing as it should. It was doing ok, and then it began to not do well. I think he's afraid that he'll have to have surgery and he doesn't want to.
He's been on 3 different meds, so not sure what will happen now.
We'll have to do that shopping trip soon.
Bella; I shall be there post haste and we will shop til the stores close; tell the rest of the gals they are welcome two as I have hired a driver to take us about town in a CATillac and I shall speak to ruffy in a moment...dai$y
