Need advice - abandoned kitten (NorCal)
Haven't been on here for awhile, but the situation is becoming more urgent.
My neighbor feeds a feral colony near her ranch. Over the summer, someone dropped off a 4-6 month old kitten that is definitely NOT feral. Every time she goes there, the kitten wants to leave with her, and she's heartbroken every time she has to leave it. Her husband won't allow her to take it home. We've tried some avenues to find it a home, but no luck yet (she doesn't want to try craigslist). Now that the we're heading into fall / winter, we really want to find it a nice home.
We do have room in our house for another cat, and could afford it, the problem is the 2 (7 yo spayed females) we already have. Squeek would probably not have any issues with a newcomer. The problem is Lickorish. She is so attached to Squeek, and it took her so long before she became friends with my husband (she wouldn't stay in the same room with him the 1st 4 months), hubby doesn't want to rock the boat. He's afraid she'll revert back to how she was at the beginning. We were also told by their former foster Mom that Lickorish would attack other cats that became friendly with Squeek, and advised us not to get another cat. There were a lot of cats in that foster house, and it was probably a stressful place for Lickorish. She's a very sensitive, skittish kitty. Currently the foster Mom has more than she can handle. One part of me says give it a try, but I'm also worried about how Lickorish would react.
Any advice, ideas? Know anyone in the SF Bay Area, or Pinole / Calistoga that could help out? Lets get this baby out of the woods.
