Last night, we hosted a party... invited a few friends, who invited a few of their friends, and so on. Well, to make a long story short, one of our guests found a stray sick kitty on the way to our party, and because they "knew we liked cats" (hehe - we have 5 of our own), brought her over to us.
It was such an unexpected thing, but I'm so happy she is here safe... she is very weak and sick, trembles a lot and is always wanting to sleep... but I can tell this little one is a trooper, and wants to live. She is still capable of giving so much love, and seems so grateful and relieved to be in a safe place.
The adorable little girl is the SWEETEST cat I have met in so long - a total lap cat, a purr-machine, and so calm and loving. She loves everyone she meets - including our dog!
She is tiny - only about 4 1/2 lbs, and about the size of a 12-week old kitten - but she's already fully grown with all adult teeth! She's the smallest cat I've ever seen. She was taken to the vet this morning and is FeLV/FIV negative (thank goodness!) but she is running a 2-degree fever, has a respiratory infection and a really bad eye infection. Poor girl... she is on antibiotics now and I'm hoping she'll start feeling better soon. She's eating Blue Buffalo dry and Wellness canned, kinda just nibbling, but at least she's eating!
I was thinking of keeping her as a barn cat for our small homestead barn, but she is so small, and so sweet and trusting (not just of people, but other animals!) that I don't think she'd be safe as an outdoor kitty. We don't have room for any more indoor cats, so we'll be looking for a home for her as soon as she is healthy, vaccinated and spayed. If anyone is looking for a super-sweet, laid-back, TINY and adorable little kitty, feel free to PM.
We are committed to making sure she goes to the right home and family.
Here's photos of the sweet sweet baby... she has no official name yet, but we've been tossing around Blossom or Momo. When she wakes up, I'll get better photos of her.
She's a very cute tabby with white.
