wandering kitty

g'day!

sunday, yesterday, at our markets one of our neighbours was having a chat about a kitty who had wandered into her sons place (he's her neighbour also) he looked after it for just over a week. his cat didn't like it one bit & was totally stressing out, they had asked all round town if anyone had lost a black kitten, but no one had. am guessing she could be from a feral family as there were quite a few around before council got to them. 
well anyway, our neighbour had exhausted herself trying to find where it came from & said they were looking for a home for it instead, i came in on the end of the chat & said "who do you need a home for?" she said a beautiful black kitten that was a few months old. i said, "i'll take it." well she threw her arms around me in a huge hug! "we'll bring him/her around later in the arvo", me, "great! "

so now i have this little critter running around my house ...

sorry it's not a great pic but she shot off secs after it was taken

she was so hard to take a photo of this arvo when i got home, running around, rolling over & shooting off to god knows where then back again! doing circles around me, had so many blurry photos or blanks

well she is not named yet, am having a bit of trouble feeding her, had to buy all tinned food (yuk) but she wouldn't touch the raw mince, at all. mmm.

so much for the promise i'd made myself, not to get anymore animals/pets til i had a fence up ...

well she is adorable, has the most beautiful amber eyes, is not all black, has a spot on her chest & a streak between her back legs on her lower belly. 
extremely affectionate, very talkative & passes out quite easily once she has exerted herself lol

craft day again today & another lady brought in a quilt top she was working on
for a friends birthday, she actually called it a "friendship quilt" 


some of the projects the ladies bring in are quite amazing, this one has only been quilting for 3 years. it has hearts all around it (i thought they were shamrocks when i first saw it) she was putting the edging in by hand. 

well that's my news for the moment, not much doing except for mowing & more mowing, the neighbour hood is noisy with all the mowers going. love the smell of cut grass.


hope everyone has had a good week & looking forward to the next one, hope you're all safe, warm or cool in your part of the world



thanx for visiting

  4. So happy that you took the kitty in. We have so many black ferals that hang around our neighborhood. We give them food and water and a safe fenced yard when they need it, but since we already have several inside cats, giving them a home is not an option. Bless you!
