   Leave a treat for Dijon

Quick Bio:
-part feral-cat rescue

The Swamy!!! Anything that involves hunting!!

People who approach too fast and other kittens who jump on her head.

Favorite Toy:
The Swamy is by far her favorite toy--she will knock everyone else over to get to it and come out of hiding to play with it.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Probably the laundry sorter or in a catpile on the bed. She likes to sleep with her siblings, so wherever another kitten is.

Favorite Food:
Natural Balance wet food, though they eat both dry and wet

She is a terrific toy hunter and very agile


Arrival Story:
Dijon and her siblings washed up onto my terrace during a bad thunderstorm. Chili was the very first intrepid explorer to come meow at my door and then run away. When she returned, she brought a sibling. Then they brought mom. After I caught the first two kittens, mom returned...with three more kittens! They had been living, as far as I could see, under part of the terrace, right near a downspout. As the gutter filled with water, it drained via the downspout into their makeshift den. The kittens began showing up one by one and I was able to trap them all but for the mother cat. Feral at first, they have tamed up fairly well and are now looking for forever homes.

Dijon was adopted by a volunteer at the Marley House!
