The other day Kimmie from Art in Red Wagons asked about my outside kitty, so here she is.
Several weeks ago, hubby came home from a business trip to find that I had set up house for her. In the picture above, you can see the wound on her right side -- the good news is that it is 1/4 the size it used to be. It's healing slow but sure.
She used to have a box to sleep in, but she chewed off both short sides so that only the long sides were left. I got rid of it, put some foam out there and an old towel. She won't let me touch her, but she will let me take care of her. Hubby was surprised to see that she moves to the side and waits until I finish tidying up her bed or cleaning out her litter box.
Now that temperatures are cooling off a bit, the street cats are move visible. Many of them have had kittens and they are running around too.
This little kitty has been coming around for a few days now. I am leaning towards taking her to the animal shelter. She was skittish at first but today she let me pet her and started purring.
It really does break my heart to think of all these poor cats left to their own defenses in a big scary world.
I believe in animal rights, and high among them is the right to the gentle stroke of a human hand. ~Robert Brault
