Kitty Update

Kitty Update

We have an update on the kitty that I posted about in my last post.

The little newcomer would let us get just close enough to pat the top of her head but nothing more.

If we bent down at all, she was off in a flash.

What probably didn't help was that any time we were paying any kind of attention to her, Rusty would be right by our side - wanting the attention too.

Keep in mind that he is a very independent feral cat - around at meal time and gone the rest of the time.

We never saw so much of him as when the kitty was here.

But he was pretty patient with her considering she was his competition.

My son came home one evening around 10 pm, and there was the kitty on the steps.

She didn't run away or protest at all when he bent to read her tag with his flashlight.

It had the name "Boots" with a phone number under it engraved on the front.

We called the number and the neighbors, about a 1/3 of a mile down the road said she had been missing for about a week.

She was only 4 months old, and they said they thought she was a he, but they weren't sure.

Figured they would know once they got her fixed.

I am thinking she must have wandered off and got lost.

Glad she was reunited with her family!


  1. WOW!!!...Boots has a tale to glad that Rusty befriended her...ahhh, a happy ending..:))

  2. That's great that you were able to find her folks!

  3. Great news! Glad there's a happy ending.

  4. I am so glad she allowed your son to read her tag! Yep...nothing like a happy ending.

  5. Glad that little 'Boots' got to go home.
    Thanks for sharing.
