This is Miss Kit and we would like to officially welcome her to Brian’s Home. As most of you know, Miss Kit lived with our Grandma until she went to heaven. Actually we’ve been calling her Miss Kit, but her name is Kit, which is short for Kit Kat.
I know some of you might remember this, but Miss Kit was rescued by our Mom. When our Grandma first moved to South Carolina she lived in a nice apartment across town from us. When Dad and Mom would visit, they would see Kit sitting up in a window at another apartment there. One day the humans who lived in that apartment moved away and they left Kit behind. Kit was declawed so she was outside trying to make it on her own without any front claws to defend herself.
Kit was showing up looking in my Grandma’s sliding glass door. It was obvious that she was scared and that she wasn’t eating very well. Mom started putting some food out for Kit and after several, several weeks she was able to gain her trust to the point where she could pet her. Mom was eventually able to scoop her up and put her in the PTU and off to the vet they went.
Poor Kit had all kind of problems. The biggest problem was a major flea infestation to the point where the itchies were so bad she had chewed off part of her lower lip and all of the fur was gone from her chin. You call tell if you look at her photo. A major flea treatment and some antibiotic shots, plus a brief stay at the vet place got her back in pretty good shape.
My Grandma decided, since she was always a cat lover, to bring Kit in and give her a home. Kit is a very sweet tabby girl and is living in our big bedroom. She is making good progress and has officially met all of us now. Outside of the normal hiss of the “who are you and why are you in here with me” variety, there have been no major incidents. We are now visiting her twice a day and before too long Dad says the bedroom door will be open once again.
I wanted to tell you a little bit about Kit and, if I can talk her into it, she will make her first appearance on Sister Saturday this week. Hopefully she will be able to tell you a little more about herself. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
