Temporarily named Pumpkin but looking for her original home
Yesterday we got a call from a friend that a little kitten had run in her house and somehow got one of the floor vents up and was now in her AC/Heating ducts. We rushed over and sure enough some loud meowing was coming from the ducts.
I crawled under the house to see if the kitten could be removed from there, but no luck. For an hour or so we played "cat & mouse" trying to get the kitten to come up but no go, so we left some cat treats near the vents and went home.
No sooner than we left and our friend said the kitten had popped up, grabbed the treats and dove back down. This morning the kitten was in the house, but too far away from the vent when our friend got up and it ran into a bedroom.
After a return trip to capture the kitten we were finally able to block her in and be successful. Not knowing what to do with her, we brought her home. Great, all we needed was another cat.
The kitten was ravenous and for the first few hours, she could not get enough to eat. We held back a full feast so that she would not get sick. Then she had to go the bathroom a few times and finally after about 6 hours with us, she settled down and started to be a kitten again.
As quickly as she took to us, snuggling, purring, and following us around, we cannot help but think she belongs to someone who loves her, so we are hoping our friends here will ask around to see if someone is missing a really loving kitten.
