Look Who Found Us!

Look who found us in the middle of last night! We got home shortly after midnight last night and I heard a very small meow from a tree in the yard. A little coaxing and a few minutes and this little guy popped out. Meet Barney Fife~ We live just far enough out of town that people dump their animals on us all the time. This will be the fourth in just a few years. We just lost a kitty to a likely kick by a cow a few weeks ago and I felt mighty awful. I had sworn off taking in strays but how can you resist when they come in a package like this one? We think he is probably about 6-7 weeks old and was well taken care of. His belly is still pretty round and he wasn't matted and malnourished like most of the others that come around. We know he didn't come from the idiot neighbors because he would have been damaged and starved to say the least. We will keep him and hope he fares well with all the other predators in the area. He isn't afraid of the cats or dogs and loves people. We are thinking that someone that knew us was needing to find a home for this little one. We seem to be suckers for this kind of thing and apparently people know it.


I must say I am glad he decided our yard looked like a good home. Sometimes a new kitty mends a broken heart over the loss of another. I needed to mother something cute for a while. Not all of the new chicks are loving me yet and this little one won't leave my lap. Cute.

  1. Heather .. we have gone through losses that I thought my heart would finally just break .. but sometimes another little furry soul can tape it back together again. This kitten is one lucky little one that found you : )

  3. OH Heather, lucky you! Those "found" kitties are so often the best! I'm craving a new one, but we still have our Ebbie and she hates intruders so I'll allow her to have her peace and quiet for a while longer.

  4. Heather,

    Cute little one, hope he's a good one. Just in from watching a box turtle lay eggs in "our" new flower bed.

  9. Heather, your story has a familiar ring to it. It sounds just like our story about the baby bunny, who is now doing just fine and is now a member of our family.

  12. My aunt is the queen of drop-off animals. You're doing a good thing and I'm sorry about your heavy heart from the other kitty.

  13. How very sad that people just "dump" their animals! We have a whole field near our home of feral cats. It angers me when people do that. But how lucky for you to have a kitten to replace the one you lost. We have a cat just like your new-found one and we adore her!

  17. We got our cat Kaboodle in a similar way and I truly believe she helped to mend our broken hearts. I think Barney has got a precious face; love that nose!

  18. I love a stray kitty. They make the best pets. And a grey stripey kitty is probably my favorite.

  19. Totally off topic I know, but based on your comment on my blog- I may be coming to you with questions on canning... since you are Ms Betty Crocker and all :) haha!

  20. I, too, am taking care of a cat that someone left behind. She lives outside and is still a bit skiddish, but I feed and water her and pet her daily. She has been spayed, so no worries there, but it makes me sad that someone could just leave their pet behind. I would let her come in, but I have dogs and they don't like her and did I mention that I'm allergic to cats?? LOL! Oh well.
    She seems to be doing well. I've been taking care of her for over a year now. Kudos to you for taking in those that have been left behind.
