A Kitten Tail

March 30, 2018

So, we've seen this little cat around lately starting late February. This was on the 26th. He doesn't have a collar and we figured he was somebody's outside cat.

But then during the terrible storms, we realized he was on our porch trying to stay out of the rain. It was so bad one night, we let him stay in the garage.

Then he started playing with our cats (through the door).

Harry

Then we named him. Harry. Like the Prince. Because he's a ginger.

Harry

Then Nic made him as comfortable as he could through all those stormy, cold and windy nights.

Harry

Then of course we had to feed him.

Harry

Then Nic had to stand guard while he ate because...

Harry

...yup. Raccoons.

Harry

We think Kitty thinks he's his doppelganger.

Harry

Now, we're definitely crazy cat people.

Harry

He loves Nic. Look at the adoration!

When he comes for dinner, you just see his little mouth meowing.

My Little Honey Bunch even built him a little shelter.

Nic and Nat and their cats.

This was Friday, March 23rd. We would not see him again.

During this time, a neighbor contacted me about Harry. He was hanging out at their house as well as another neighbor's. It appears we were all looking out for him. On the 24th, we found out through our neighborhood site that he had been picked up by a neighbor's mom, who rescues cats. She took him and had him neutered and got him his shots. They tested him for Kitty Leukemia and it came back positive. She was going to have him tested a second time just to make sure it wasn't a false positive.

In the meantime, she had been keeping him in a spare bedroom, which he was not happy about. She also had not been able to find a home for him.

We sure miss him. We had gotten so used to having him join us for dinner. Plus, I think he scared the rats away.

I got a call from the rescuer today AND...the second Leukemia test came back negative! Since she couldn't find a home for him and knew that our neighborhood takes care of him, she and the vet decided it was in his best interest to bring him back to the neighborhood!

Yay! Harry will be back tomorrow!
