One day there was this lady driving down MN hwy 169 and she saw a little fluff ball moving on the shoulder. Being an animal lover she decided to stop and see if it needed help. What she found was a very young calico kitty (2-3 weeks old). The lady scooped up the kitty and took her home. Because the kitty was so young she knew it couldn't have just wandered off from her mama and siblings, she had been put there on purpose.
The lady took care of the kitty for a few days until she could convince her friend to adopt her. See, the lady already had lots of kitties and a small farm. The friend caved, because she loved calicoes so much, and adopted the abandoned kitten.
I was renting out the basement from the kittens new mama and helped take care of her. She was a sweetheart and a little pistol from the very start. She couldn't understand why the two other kitties (calico litter mates) didn't like her right away. Her current human and I were trying to figure out what to name her and it was decided that her name would be Gabby. It's funny because Gabby rarely talks.
It's now two and a half years later and Gabby's mom knew I was looking to get a kitty soon. Gabby's mom is going to be selling her house to move into something smaller and she knows she'll not be able to take all 3 kitties. So she called me and asked if I would adopt Gabby. I had to get some paperwork completed to be able to have her in my no pets allowed apartment building. They even made me get liability insurance for the 8 pound fluff ball
I am able to get her because I am disabled due to anxiety and depression. I helped rescue her and now she'll help rescue me when I start to slide into the dark holes.
I've already got some of her favorite toys here plus a few more I made or bought. I also made her a cardboard box kitty condo.
