  • I bow to you Sir Steve for a chivalric code of honor in the rescue of such a ferocious beast with claws and fangs and a frightened roar. The taming of the creature still another feat of bravery and compassion To lure it out of its hiding with such wisdom took strength and bravery on levels still lacking in a modern realm. May I commend you also on your endeavor to seek refuge for the beast from whence it dwell.Few would attempt such a quest and most would flee. I am in awe of such noble hunger to beckon the call and seek the heart of such a creature for the comfort of others and not of your own. May you find placement and comfort for the cryature in the Omnius of our day....Be blessed!

  • She is sleeping on my computer keyboard and it makes it a little tough to type. In fact, she somehow disabled my "enter" key and I had to reboot to get it going again. BUT, we love her and she would make someone a great companion.

    Even better, someone could adopt her with another of our newest litter so she could have a playmate her same age.

    But, I get ahead of myself. I truly think she adapted to inside too quickly to be an outside, feral kitten. Someone has shown her love from the very start so PLEASE help me find her "person".

  • Thanks chefgrape. We just have a hard time taking them to the shelter for an unknown future.

    She has taken well to the litter box. In fact,we gave her a "little girls" box just for her but she prefers to use the big girls/boys box.

    And-p 0/8560-8ghhhhhhhhhhhujjjjjj (Sorry her words, not mine) What I was going to say before she got on the keyboard was that her purr box is working just fine. She likes to sit on one or the other keyboard or climbs up to my shoulder to purr.

  • Thanks Palindrome. Deb is checking with other neighbors as we write. We have a semi-feral group in our garage and Pumpkin is just totally comfortable with human companionship to be wild.

    If no one in the area has lost her, we have to assume she was "dropped", which is a continuing shame. Yes, she lucked out by having us capture her but she was famished and probably very scared.

    Right now I am typing with my less dominant hand because she has been sleeping on my other for the past hour. Slow to get anything doe but maybe it is a talent I needed to develop. :-)

  • It's obvious she feels right at home. She's also got some mighty fine keyboard skills for one so young. Maybe ya'll could do an article together before you find her a forever home. lol

  • I would bet she'll have more to say. When we first brought her home "talk" seemed to be all she did. It took several hours before she would hush.

    Now, she is quite content, with a great purr, but don't let that discourage anyone from speaking up. We have 4 other brand new ones and if we don't catch three young females out in our garage soon, we will have plenty to share.
