A while ago, I told everyone about a family of stray cats that moved into my yard. Well, I managed to win over the affections of one of the two kittens. That kitten ended up adopting us and started living on my porch. My mother and I set up a little shelter for her, made out of a plastic bin, a tarp, and an old cat bed.
After a while, and as it started to get cold, my mother and I caved and brought the kitten inside. We‘re still hoping to find the mother and second kitten a home as, sadly, we can‘t afford to rescue all of them ourselves and our local shelter is full (they have over 70 cats! [-_-]).
At the moment, as we de-flea and de-worm our new little friend, we have her secluded in a room in our basement away from our two older cats. Once she’s clear of any harmful parasites, we can introduce her to our other cats. I hope they all get along. Wish us luck on that!
Pets can be a difficult subject to photograph (I think I mentioned this in a previous post “Unruly Subjects”), especially a hyper active kitten! I had a bit of a hard time getting a decent photograph of our new kitten at first, but after she started to wind down from a little catnip encounter, I was able to get a few images. [^_^]
My next step (while our new little friend is still in the basement room) is to “kitten-proof” the house. Wish me luck!
Until next time…
