|One day, this lady drove in my driveway. I was just leaving the barn. She got out of the car, with this little kitten in her arms. She says, I just found this kitten, wandering down the road, is she yours?
No I said, all my barn cats are here, and none are kittens.
She says, I can't keep her, will you take her? (remember these words, this is exactly what she said, anything sound fishy yet, didn't dawn on me at the time)
Then she says, your not going to hurt her are you? Well gee, thats like asking Father Knows Best if he is going to hurt his kids, I am more than well known, on the road, as being overly pickey about my horses and taking in stray cats. (another hint, didn;t dawn on me at the time)
The lady handed her to me. The kitten reached out her little arms to the lady. I said, I think she would rather stay with you, are you sure you can't keep her. The lady never looked back, just got in her car and left.
I put her in the barn, she was real little, then I noticed, she was well fed, and well groomed, long hair kitten. I am thinking someone has to have owned her, she is too well cared for. They way they drive on this country back road, someone would have hit her, or the coyotes would of got her, or she would have burrdocks in her fur.
I watched the paper for weeks, no one reported her missing, she had to belong to someone, she was too well fed, too well groomed.
My theory is, she belonged to that lady, and for whatever reason, the lady couldn;t keep her, and that lady was trying to find her a home. She looks Maine Coon, but she has a Persian type head, maybe an oops breeding. How would the lady know she is a girl, if she just found her, who would even look, if your trying to find who she belongs too. Why would the lady say she can't keep her, if she was trying to find out who she belongs to.
I named her Smokey, after my first show horse, when I was a kid. His name was Gunsmoke McCue, he was a top halter horse, pretty much could not be beat, and he went back to Peter McCue, for those that are familiar with Quarter Horse, because she looked gray, and the lady brought her to my barn. The vet said she was about 12 weeks old, and yes, very well cared for.
