Kitten went to the vet for a check-up and deworming last night. Here's the scoop...
It's a GIRL!
She is 8 weeks old and weighs 1.12 kg or 2.46 lbs.
She is too healthy to be a feral cat or stray. Somebody dumped her, in the frigid winter. It's a miracle she survived the -20C (-4F) and LOWER temps we had earlier this week. She was one smart kitty to find our granary and start making a lot of noise. Words can't express my disgust for someone who would dump a kitten like this. We do have animal shelters in this country, if you really need to get rid of a cat.
The vet told me to look for other kittens in case they were all dumped here but I haven't seen any yet. We are about 1 km from the nearest house and well back from the road. Still, I will keep checking.
I am in love. So is Gordon! She is living in our spare bedroom for now.
This is all awfully reminiscent of how Naomi showed up in 2008, although she at least came in warmer September weather.
We are calling her Emily!
More photos soon.
