As mentioned in a previous post, some of my days are filled with dog walking & working with very little of consequence to photograph or write about. So today, I looked through my past photos & came across these beauties – aaaah, kittens!
Last year I received a phone call from my daughter who lives in an apartment in a city 25 miles away. It was gone midnight & she woke me to panic about a cat in the car park who was following them, mewling pitifully. After a lengthy conversation of me reasoning with her to leave it outside as it would most probably have a home. If not, no doubt it would still be there to be rescued in the morning. My parting comment to her & her boyfriend was “You’ll only do what you want anyway!”
Lo & behold, the following day they had a cat in an apartment where no pets were allowed. The vet pronounced it a female in good health if a little thin & Sarah posted adverts hoping to find puss-cat’s owner. She was saddened to receive many calls from people who had lost their cats, but not this one.
Meanwhile she became fond of this friendly black & white cutie, but was going on holiday abroad…. Mum, of course, borrowed a cat travel case & fetched kitty home. Unfortunately although she was affectionate with people, she terrorised both our existing Chloe-cat & Hayley-dog.
But Sookie, as she was quickly named, thrived growing sleeker & fatter – too fat really with a round tummy. Yep, this stray had obviously been thrown out because she was pregnant! I was living with my son & daughter-in-law & they were delighted at the thought of kittens – they weren’t disappointed as you can see.
