Here is finally a picture of Hobo Kitty. She is now living
in my garage bathroom. She is really a young kitten.
But what my sleuthing has figured out is that she was
raised around little kids. The morning I finally was able
to get her to come to me, she ran to me then ran to the dog.
The dog was all set to chase her when this little cat runs up to
the dog and starts rubbing on her. The dog was completely confounded
by these actions and just sat down and pondered this weird cat.
A little later in the morning she met my grand children and she ran
to them. My grand daughter picked her up by the neck the cat went
completely limp and never even tried to scratch.
She has had a collar on
but it was removed. She has never unsheathed her claws at any point
since I have been trying to get her calm and not afraid.
The kids can hold her now and pet her and she has a nice motor. She is a
young kitten. I am going to take her to the vet and make sure she doesn't
have anything wrong with her.
My problem is I already have 5 cats who are not happy at this at all.
I am afraid of turning into a cat hoarder. We only have one cat that
wasn't dumped or thrown out of a car. All of our cats are because someone
didn't want them.
She comes to my back door now and looks in, I always think she is saying,
" I can see other cats in there what is wrong with me." So I go outside and sit
in a chair and hold her and pet her.
So that that is how Hobo Kitty is doing. My daughter who is a great fan of
Russian Literature who is reading Doctor Zhivago wants to call her Yuri.
I know if she gets a name then we will be adding a cat to the family.
I think my house has a sign somewhere but I have yet to find it,
something like," soft family lives here leave all cats or dogs"
I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week.
