New family Member !

09 Jun

This is just a short blog to say we have a new family member to join the chaos of our home ……. On Tuesday night, well about 1am in the morning of Wednesday I was lying in bed reading because I couldn’t sleep. I suddenly heard a cat crying outside our window …not unusual I hear you say … but it was a pitiful meowing sound which continued for a while and I decided that it sounded in distress and more like a kitten then a grown cat. So I got up, opened the window and peered out and could just see something black and small in the corner so I called to it and the meowing became louder and quite frantic. I grabbed some shoes and went outside to where the little one was and gently coaxed it over to me. It was a tiny black kitten who was cold and wet and shaking like a leaf so I picked it up and took it inside. We think he (well we think it’s a he!) is about 7/8 weeks old. We warmed him up and gave him lots of cuddles and he fell asleep on the bed. We don’t know how long he was out there but he was very hungry and eat so quickly it hardly touched the sides. We didn’t tell the kids straight away because we didn’t want them getting attached if the owner turned up. We have kept our ears open for anyone looking for a lost kitten, asked around  and looked around for any flyers about the place concerned about their lost pet. But no one’s claimed him so it looks like he’s joining our family of 7 humans, 2 cats and 1 dog …need a bigger house!!! The boys love him of course and we’ve named him SPARKY.

    Who the hell lets a kitten go out on it’s own at that age? Glad that someone decent has taken him in though.

      I know but we don’t know how he came to be there and so late . But he chose the right window to meow near so I could here him 🙂

    I do love people like you who care enough to get up in the middle of the night to investigate a cry for help. What a beautiful little chap he is. 🙂

      Thank you . I certainly couldn’t have ignored his poor little cry and I love animals so he’s come to the right place 🙂

    Who can say “no” to a lost kitten? I ended up with six cats. They all came as kittens to the back door, probably b/c all the other neighbors have dogs. My back deck was the safest!

    Lovely of you to get up in the night to rescue this little pet. Hope he can stay with you as he has obviously chosen a good home! 🙂

      Thankyou 🙂 He has stolen our hearts so I think he’s here to stay, one more isn’t going to make much difference !
