Well, tonight’s exciting adventure – I found a kitten hiding in my garden. I put out some food and water for him, but he wouldn’t come out. At first I thought I’d leave him there for a bit, but he’s not super bright – he doesn’t seem to realize that hiding involves a) not being seen and b) not being heard. He’s got a pretty big sad, and was mewing up a storm.
We live right on the edge of Jackson Park, which is huge and has coyotes. I often hear them at night. A kitten would be a pretty tasty treat.
So, Elliot finallly got him. He’s staying in my spare room at the moment, with a really cute little homemade litter box, and some food and water and cuddly old towels. We can’t keep him, our cats are too old and cranky, and a new kitten would not last too long, I think. Plus, our shots aren’t up to date.
He’s super cute (though he may be a girl, we’re not sure). He’s black and white. So, if you want a kitten, give me a buzz! If we can’t place him, we’re going to take him out to the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society, which is a no-kill shelter, probably on Saturday. We’re just calling him Mr. X for now, because we don’t want to get attached to him.
Whoops. Too late…
Somebody nice PLEEEEEEEEEEEZ take this kitten!
