A little story I don't think I relayed during my eye surgeries and such........


One night Lori and I came home late on a weekend night after a shopping expedition........(Lori loves shopping....I don't really......)

We pulled into the driveway and she saw something on her front porch. 'What is that?'

It turned out to be a kitty.

There were some very bad storms that night....and kitty was obviously very frightened. Kept meowing and meowing......

Ran off, but after a couple of hours of coaxing, he finally came up and took some proffered food. And so we coaxed him into the garage, where he took up residence for a few days, hiding most of the time, but coming out once his hunger and courage took hold.

Tried on the local want ads and craigslist to find his home, but to no avail. He MUST have belonged to somebody......he was neutered, well kept, could not have been in the wild for very long.

Seems now, weeks later, that somebody must have dumped him in the countryside.........so sad.

BUT!!!

We have found him a new loving home....I fell soo much in love with the little guy that I would have taken him if all else failed.

He was sooooooooooo scared that night, but there were moments that he forgot how scared he was and snuggled right up to you. He is very happy now in his new home.

Sounds like You've earned another Gold Star.

Great to hear a "good news" story Mark. The wee Calico that has adopted us is snoozing on a pile of bubble wrap in my study at the moment. She drops round to us for a couple of hours every evening. I guess she just knows where she is loved (and spoiled rotten) : ))

Best wishes

Tom

Happy to hear lost or dumped kitty has a new home. We think our Spawnie was either lost or dumped in our neighborhood as well. He too was neutered and clearly well socialized. We are glad he found us. He is a great cat! There is always room for one more kitty, isn't there...

Thank you Julie, she is a lovely kitty. Did the Vet say how old she is?

Great name Julie and then her nickname could be just Happy.
