When Mary was walking in town tonight she heard some pityful meowing and, upon searching, found a tiny little kitten hiding in a very narrow gap between two buildings. At first it wouldn’t want to come out, inspite of all her calling. But then, after she had got some kitty food at the local aupermarket just around the corner, it was sitting there and she could pick it up. Of course, Mary with her big heart for strays, for which I love her, couldn’t resist and brought it home. And now we have number 8 here …
… and it’s hungrily munching away. The food bowl is (nearly) bigger than the kitten. 😉 It was too hungry, of course, to look into the camera.
Later, I had it on my shoulder:
Isn’t it ever so sweet? And please, don’t look at my unwashed hair too closely. 😉
Just now, we’re keeping it in an animal carrier so that the other cats won’t bother it and that they can get used to each other. Sally, btw, has already sniffed at it closely and has accepted the latest addition to our household.
