Those of you that are my friends on Facebook, already know that we have a new kitty cat addition here at the Sidewalk Shoes household. One Friday night, as I was in the kitchen cooking, my husband came home and said, “What’s that on the front porch?” I looked out and there was a kitten. A calico kitten frantically wanting it. She was standing on her hind legs pawing at the door and then going to the window beside the door. Frantically, back and forth. I opened the door and she rushed in.
She immediately found the cat food, ate some, flopped over on her side on the rug in front of the fridge and looked up at us. My husband and I looked at each other. My first thought was, that I was glad he was home when this happened. He would have never believed me that this kitten just showed up, demanding to be let in. My second thought was, that it was going to get below freezing that night and it looked like calico kitty would be spending the night.
The next day was Saturday and I figured that I would go around the neighborhood searching for her owners. Even though, she seemed not very well cared for. But it was cold, really cold. And I thought, shouldn’t the people who lost their kitty be the ones scouring the neighborhood. So, we waited. And waited. And here we are two weeks later. No one came looking for her.
Scrappycat doesn’t care one way or another about the new addition. Patchouli hates her and is not happy. Smudge is glad to have another kitty in the house who feels as strongly about food as he does. We’ve named her CoCo.
She is as big as Smudge’s tail. And yes, that is how Smudge looks when he comes in from outside. You can imagine what my floors look like.
