ABC Wednesday - K is for Kitty

K is for Kitty............

a macro of a napping kitty

I know that many of my readers are quite familiar with this kitty.

I have blogged about him many times, and perhaps you have even seen this image of him.

Well, he now has a buddy.

And there is no way I can even get close enough to pat her, forget about take a picture of her.

Rusty, the above cat, is feral and has been living around us for over 10 years now.

He is beginning to show his age, whatever that may be.

There have been several other feral cats around through the years, but they never stuck around - Rusty always chased them off.

This new youngster has made itself quite at home with Rusty, and the elder cat does not argue about it at all.

The thing is though, the new cat has a collar with a tag.

And try as we might, she will not let us get close enough to her to read it.

She has been living with Rusty for over a week now and hopefully she will see that even though he is wary of us, he trusts us enough to pat and feed him.

We have been calling the kitty a "her" but the tag might tell us it is a "he"

Hopefully she will befriend us soon so we can help her if she is lost and not feral.

This is the seventh round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.


  1. I am one who has certainly been following Rusty's's so interesting that he's let him/her stick around...I'll be curious to hear the continuing story of your beautiful feral friend...:))

  2. Your cat is so KOOL. Don't know about the other cat, tho.

  3. I so hope you can soon find out if this kitten has a home. We had a cat for years. We named him Rusty....but after a litter of kittens, we changed the name to Rustina.

  4. Beautiful shot, and such a lovely cat. I hope you manage to get closer to the new kitty. And why didn't I think of 'K' for kitty? I have four of them and was wracking my brain for a subject for K!!!

  5. Meow! 'Kitty'is the very best of K-words!!!
    What a story! You are good two-leggeds for trying to help homeless kitties!
    Good luck with helping 'her'.
    Bless you!

  6. What a sweet face Rusty has. I believe that feral cats choose 'their' homes and obviously he found a great one with you!

  7. Beautiful shot, and such a lovely cat.the cat looks sweet and cute.
