Just when I thought it was safe to go shopping (for pet food) I find out the opposite is true.
Yesterday, while I was in Albany at Target, I came out of the store and was loading bags of food into my trunk. As I was getting into my car, I heard this really loud meow. Startled, the first thing I did was check my car to see if any of the barn cats had hopped in going for a joy ride. Nope- just Brook in the back seat drooling away.
Once more, I heard this meow and it was close. The parking lot was full of cars and I looked around to see if someone had locked a kitty in a car and it was in distress. Nope??I listened really hard and did my kitty call and underneath my car now, I heard it again, more persistent- MEOW!!!
Kneeling down, I see this beautiful calico girl huddling underneath my car. I should have turned my cat magnet off before I left the house. I bribed her out with food, and she was starving (and pregnant) of course! Sigh??.. I got her into one of my cat carriers and ran her over to my vet whose clinic is nearby. He informs me she is ready to pop any day- GREAT!
So she is upstairs hissing her fool head off at me right now, but she will allow me to touch her. I know she is just protecting herself and her soon-to-be kittens. And I just adopted out 7 cats to various homes too!
Mike just laughed when I got home with the cat. I just hope she throws kittens of color as they are so much easier to place in homes. With my luck though, she will probably produce pure black kittens! LOL
I am calling her Mamasan. In certain ways she reminds me of a childhood cat we called Princess.
