Arrival Story:
Kiya was another feral cat that my family had been in the process of trapping. Unfortunately before we were able to trap her she ended up becoming pregnant. When she started to give birth on our back porch I saw the opportunity to trap her and at least allow her to give birth and rear her kittens in a controlled environment with the intention of releasing her back outside once the kittens were found homes. Sadly, her kittens all ended up dying from what my former boss and veterinarian believed to be either some congenital defect we could not detect or from FKS (Fading Kitten Syndrome) despite my best efforts to keep them alive. Once they had all perished we got her spayed and the ear notching that is common among ferals in our area one they are sterilized. Once she was healed from surgery and the Mastitis she developed we let her out only she refused to move and stayed at our back door. I couldn't stand to see her outside crying so I brought her back in where's she lived for over a year now. I was expecting to gain another cat but I guess it was just fate.

Kiya is named after King Tut's supposed mother, Kiya. She is semi-feral. I only say that because she is a sweet cat, rarely hisses, gets along with the other cats in the household and on occasion will let me give her a quick pet. That being said, she is extremely skittish and spends the majority of her time away from humans, which is fine by me because she is so well behaved.
