Arrival Story:
Dido just showed up one day and didn't leave. A tiny, adult kitty. She came onto the porch when we fed our other outdoor female kitty, Artemis, and started eating like she'd lived here all along.

We just discovered where Dido has been living - in the trunk of one of our HUGE trees in the back yard! There is a hole she jumps into and because she is so tiny it is the perfect size for a little kitty needing to get away from the elements - snow, wind, zero degree weather. What a smart kitty!

This itty bitty adult kitty showed up at my mom's. We have one outdoor cat, Artemis. We had recently rehomed her brother & adopted brother because my mom is moving to Texas & can't take them with her. We didn't rehome Artemis because she doesn't like to be in a carrier, car, house, and you're lucky if you can get a stroke in on her back. We felt a little bad that she was alone, when she was used to the other cats & they often slept together.
It was a few months ago, and then one morning this very small adult female was on the porch waiting for breakfast like she'd lived there all along. She could be handled, was friendly, didn't have a thick winter coat, and looked healthy. So I'm guessing she had a home at some point and wasn't one of the MANY feral's in our rural area. We haven't been able to find her owner so, before she could add to the population, we had her spayed. She also got her shots, wormer, and a name. We are glad she is here to keep Artemis company.

We thought of rehoming her, because my stepdad isn't really a cat person & he'd be the only one to care for them. But when I talked to him he'd already been looking at heated water bowls & making plans for building a cat house for his two cats!

Dido has the most amazing coat I've seen. It is a calico color and pattern, but the brown & black patches are tabby too. Never seen that before. She has the most amazing bright green eyes. They just leap off of her face and mesmerize you.

I hope she has a long and happy life at Crooked Gate Farm.
