Just as I clicked on the “publish” button for my last post, Retta pulled up the driveway, back from visiting her parents in Ozark, Missouri. Along the way home, just off the highway, she noticed what looked to be two tiny kittens. Not one to look the other way when situations such as this occur, Retta stopped the truck and investigated. She found the two little kittens, but found no evidence of any siblings or mother cat. Apparently, these two marvelous creatures were abandoned along the side of the road by some sick, heartless individual who could not think of any other way to handle a new litter of kittens.
Retta did what most caring, nurturing people would do under the circumstances – she gathered the kittens up and brought them home. So it looks as if we shall now be a three cat family. And this is what they look like:
Hopefully we can teach them to get along with the other cat, the dogs, the horses, the guineas, the chickens, the wild birds and the squirrels. Anything else is fair game.
