Good Monday morning to you. It’s dawned a beautiful day here today and we thought what better way to start the week than to introduce you to some of the other members of our family, i.e. our kitty kids – “furbabies”.
Both kitties were born in the wild and as such are “feral” but were rescued by us and now live the good life with regular doses of good food and much loving. Misty has always remained a little on the “wild” side, so much so that we’ve affectionately labeled her our “little chainsaw with teeth”. She will give affection when she deems it necessary, usually this means she wants a treat or some food. Misty came from a household who didn’t believe in spaying or neutering feral cats and as such they were overrun with too many cats and not enough food. She was trapped and spayed but as she was 4 months old she has still doesn’t understand 100% that she no longer has to fight for her fair share of food.
Foxie on the other hand is becoming a lap kitty. We managed to trap him after he’d had an altercation with a car. He was badly injured but has made a full recovery. He was very wild when he first came to live inside. He was also a full grown kitty so initially it was difficult for him to trust humans. Feral kitties are taught by their mothers to be very wary of humans and seek no interaction other than for food. He has come around though and has since decided that this is a much better life than having to forage for food. He loves lying across Marks’ legs in the evening but has lately decided that my legs and my chair are also great places to snooze. As Foxie has grown older he’s also becoming a real “jabberwocky” – very talkative. He loudly voices his opinion about everything and anything.
Have a wonderful week.
