In June, about 5½ years ago, we found a single baby kitten crying behind the wood pile in our backyard. The mother left her there and never came back. The baby kitten weighed about 7 ounces and was maybe a week and a half old according to our vet at the time. We brought her inside, nursed her with an eye dropper and kitten bottle. Although we are more dog people, we took her in ourselves since there was no agency or place who had the time to care for such an infant kitten and we couldn’t let her die.
We named her Tinkerbell, because back then she was so tiny, and of course, she became a member of our family. She has a box turtle colored coat with green eyes. We had her spayed and had her front claws taken off since we didn’t want our furniture destroyed. She has been kept indoors ever since and sees the vet regularly for all shots etc. We have always fed her BLUE food and healthy treats. She has never had fleas since we use the stuff you put on their neck. She uses a litter box and has never peed outside of it or damaged our home or furnishings. She loves laying in the sunshine and has played with our dogs off and on when they were living, but usually just ignores them. She rubs up against peoples legs at times and will allow others to pet her some, but she pretty much sticks with my husband and I. She likes to be up on our chest with her head under the left side of our neck to snuggle, purr, and be scratched under her chin, top of her head, and ears.
She also travels well. She sits in her bed up on the center console of our truck when we take trips. My husband used to take her on jobs with him when he worked out of town for weeks and months at a time and she stayed with him in our 5th wheel travel trailer. We even cut a hole in a riser of the stairs inside the camper that led to the outside compartment for her litter box.
Unfortunately, I have allergies to cats, so we never allowed her up on our bed. Although we have bathed her few times a year to keep the dander down so we could keep her, my allergies are not doing well. When she crawls up to sit with me, I start itching and sneezing. We need to find a good home for her - someone who would really like an indoor cat and/or traveling companion. She would be free of course as well as all of her supplies - litter box, automatic food dispenser, toys, travel bag, brush, and whatever else we have for her.
