Arrival Story:
Trudi's mother Miss Kitty wandered into our barn and delivered 3 kittens in the hay loft, keeping them well hidden and totally inaccessible for quite awhile. We finally managed to capture two of the three kittens one afternoon, and could not locate the last fiesty kitten. We had loaded the kittens and their mother in the car and were about to pull away to return to our city home when my daughter thought she heard meowing. Sure enough it was Trudi, stuck behind a wood pile and literally hanging by her neck. We had to tear apart a large portion of the wood pile to reach her. How she got out of the hay loft is a mystery (the loft is very high off the ground level, with no steps, and a very long way from the wood pile we found her in). These kittens were quite wild by the time we were able to capture them.

We found homes for all the kittens and their mother, but Trudi was sick and we felt it was unfair to expect someone to adopt a sick kitten. She has both kinds of urinary crystals which is well controlled now with a perscription diet.
