snow cat

March 4, 2015

On one of the snowiest days this winter, we heard a cat howling outdoors. My son dug through the drifts and tunneled under the porch until at last he saw a starving gray kitty huddled in the far corner. We coaxed him out to eat, but when we tried to scoop him up, he scurried under the porch again. Morning and night, we stuck bowls of food under the porch, until finally he let us pet him. Now, after three weeks, he actually comes indoors and eats and naps on what used to be my writing table. We’ve named him Willy.

    Charlotte,
    Welcome to the world of rescuing felines! We saved our cat Rosalind when we found her wandering down the street as a three-week-old infant. She has been a loving and feisty family addition., Even her elder sister (adopted), Natasha loves her – though that doesn’t stop ‘Tasha from smacking her little sister on the head a la Moe Howard from time to time.

    Willy is a beauty! Thank you for rescuing him! I know he’ll bring you lots of fun and love.
    Sharon
