Arrival Story: Little Kiki showed up on our acreage one evening while my husband and I were walking around the property. She came bounding over a pile of rock and started following me around the yard. She was so sweet and so cute!
She was very friendly and seemed very healthy for a stray. She was clean but a little thin. We weren't sure how old she was. My husband being a softie gathered up some scraps and water and we fed her for a few days. It was becoming clear she was not leaving and we were growing very attached to her.
We really didn't want a pet but she was an excellent mouse catcher and very active so we decided if she was to stay she had to have a name and a visit to the vet.
The vet gave her all her shots and determined she was about a year old. He said he could hardly use the word "ferel" when referring to her because she was so easy with humans and very sweet.
Two weeks later she was in for her spay. She did spend the night and she came home the next afternoon a little thin and tired but within 5 days she had plumped up a little and had all her energy back.
Right now, Kiki sleeps in the garage at night on a soft comforter she has claimed as her own. She goes in at 10:00 pm and wakes us up at 5:30 am to be let out. During the day she sleeps in our out building. She has made a bed in a stack of 5 gallon buckets with soft towels in the top and haning over the edge. She loves to be up high. The higher the better.
We love little keekster more than we thought we would. She is not an indoor cat but she is cared for very well and we make a point of spending time with her each day for love and petting. She is becoming a little spoiled :)
I can't keep Kiki inside for a few reasons but the most important reason is her own personality. She loves to climb trees, hunt mice, and catch flying moths in the air. Her freedom is very important to us. We live on 10 acres so she is free to roam with no interference. She does not stray far. She is always 2 calls away and even when we walk to the road she will not go, she waits for our return.
She has found her home and has no intention of leaving!
