I went out one Sat. morning to buy ingredients to make a pie for my friend's birthday. I had an armful of groceries, but I couldn't resist stopping to see the cats that Kensington Kitties had in a van. I had no idea that a person could foster a cat and being that this would be my first pet ever, I thought that would be a great introduction even if I didn't end up keeping the cat I fostered. The second I put my hand in her cage she just nuzzled right up to my hand and my heart melted. Without a second of hesitation I said that I would love to take her in. So I came home with butter, flour, sugar, and a cat!! I couldn't resist calling her "Pie" (especially because I work part-time as a baker).
This is an email from the original couple that found her, it's a great story with a happy ending:
Your email about the calico cat, Pie, was forwarded to us by Laurie from the Brooklyn Animal Foster Network. I hope you don't mind me emailing you. My wife (Amy) and I (Scott) found the calico cat you named Pie (we were calling her Molly!). I thought I'd let you know how we came to find her.
Amy and I were sitting at dinner one night and heard this very plaintive, insistent meowing outside. It wenty on for a while and wjhen I went out to investigate I found a very scared and hungry calico kitty cowering in the bed of a pick up truck parked by the curb. I took her out and put her on the driveway in front of our apartment and went to get her some food. As soon as I opened the door, she dashed inside faster than lightening and made a bee-line for our bedroom as if she knew exactly where it was. She dove under the covers on our bed and wouldn't come out. Over the next few days we tried to find out who she belonged to since she didn't seem to be a street cat and we also tried to find someone to give her too because we aren't allowed to have cats at the moment. I discovered that a couple of guys who love on the block basically just decided they didn't want her anymore and threw her out figuring she'd run away or someone would come along and take her in. (MONSTERS! Just an awful way to treat an animal).
About the same time, Amy got in touch with Laurie and made arrangements to bring Molly to the Foster Network. We're hoping to help out more often with the Animal Foster Network now that we know of them. Amy and I often befriend strays and feral cats and feed anywhere from 7 - 12 of them a day. We hope to take a course on the spaying and neutering of them and to get many of them help. Amy is disabled so if she's having a bad day we can't always do the things we want to for the cats as quickly as we want. But we are slowly learning about the resources that exist to help strays and abandoned cats such as the Foster Network & Kensington Kitties.
