So this little girl had been lurking around in our back woods for a few weeks. The hubs heard her meowing as he worked on my truck and called to her whenever he could.
He finally coaxed her out of hiding, and eventually close enough to put food out for her to smell and see. She gobbled it right up. This went on for about a week he attempted to touch her, which she gladly let him.
We continued to feed her and show her love until April 18th. There were strong storms predicted and I didn’t want to leave her out there…she didn’t seem happy with the shelter we had made for her.
So, we brought her into the house. I am so glad we did. We had tornado alarms all night. The weather was horrid at times.
My other three cats seemed un-phased for the the most part…a little hissing back and forth was all.
This little girl had to have been in a home previously. She wasn’t feral. She wasn’t little box trained either, but only had one accident before learning to use the box, so she is very smart.
She is very attached and has bonded with the hubby. He is happy with that as all the other cats are mine. I AM THE MOTHER OF CATS!!
He took her to the vet the next morning, and she had worms of course, was only 6lbs of skin and bones, and is appx. a year old.
We have named her Windi – yanno, since the tornado stuff.
Its been almost a week now and she is fitting in just fine. She is getting lots of sleep, loves to curl up on the hubs when he sleeps, and is navigating around the house on her own at her own pace.
The other cats are giving her her space, well, except Lil Man…he wants a playmate so badly. Though even he just gets close enough to sniff her.
She is extremely loving. She sits on me and rests her head on my shoulder as I pet from head to tail, as she purrs softly. However, when the hubby is up and about, she is all Daddys Girl.
In two weeks she goes back to the vet to be spayed and get her boosters – then the other three cats need their annual check ups.
Busy cat lady me!
Be sweet! <3
