My Feral Kitten From Heaven
For 58 years, I have been a dog lover/owner. I had just lost my beloved Morgan Amy Jo of 13 years on April Fool’s Day – no joke. Since I knew her time was just around the corner, I vowed she would be my last pet. I didn’t want to have another broken heart. But 2 months later, my husband found a 2-3 week old abandoned kitten in our back yard. We knew the mother had delivered 4 kittens, 3 of which looked just like her, and one was different.
She had been moving her babies around our yard every so often and my husband just figured they were on the move again when he found the one left behind. He kept watch for awhile but Mama never came back. So, he brought the kitten into the garage and put him in a box for safe keeping. I didn’t know he was there – walked right by him and never heard a peep (meow). Later that night, my husband came home from work and brought the kitten into me. From that day on, me and Toby Joe have been inseparable. I never thought I would fall in love with another animal again, let alone a CAT.
As for him being a feral – they are trainable. Toby Joe is and has been using the old doggie door for weeks now to go out to his litter box to take care of his business. He walks on a leash. He is my gift from heaven – we saved each other. I can’t imagine my life without him.
