So THIS was dumped at my across-the-road neighbour's place on Friday night, when it was raining and 4C and just a generally awful night...
Yes, that's right. A six-week old female Calico kitten, dumped like trash. Fortunately my neighbours are kind.
They heard her wailing outside and brought her into their house.
Then they called me! But before you start...
NO! I did not keep her. We do NOT need 18 cats!
No one believed me when I said I was going to find her a great forever home. I think even Gordon doubted me.
(Although he fell in love with her right away!)
But no, we really didn't need another kitty. My neighbours couldn't deal with her, so I told them to bring her over.
She settled in really quickly. She is an amazing kitten: super affectionate, confident, friendly...
...and completely unfazed by other cats.
We took her to the vet on Sunday. Apart from worms (for which she was treated) she was fine.
She likes to be carried around. She fell asleep in my hoodie.
Sometimes she sleeps with her eyes open! But she's wide awake here.
And while we were waiting for her NEW KITTY-PARENTS to pick her up yesterday, she fell asleep zipped into my vest.
Her name is Destiny now, and she has gone to live with my friends Bob and Laurie, who recently lost their beloved cat to cancer. They weren't quite ready for another cat but when they heard about this special little kitten, they wanted to come meet her. And then they took her home.
Her name is now Destiny, and she is going to have a fabulous life.
And I am so PROUD of myself for not keeping her... I amazed many of my friends, and quite possibly Gordon. :)
