The snowstorm on Friday kept the kids home from school and prompted me to make the decision to take our porch cat inside. I was successful in catching the poor kitty since the negative temperatures made it huddle up in the heated igloo on the porch. The heating pad was not working that great anymore since it was way way too cold.
I managed to make a shelter for the kitty in our spare bathroom with a hideout in the linen closet.
The first evening I spent watching a Netflix movie on the bathroom floor and it only took 5 minutes for kitty to crawl out of her box and curl up by my stomach which melted my heart.
The trust and love they can put into a human after being so hugely disappointed for the majority of their lives are amazing.
My hubby wasn’t so kind and asked me ‘what the hell I was doing’? Well, I didn’t stop there and ended up sleeping in the bathtub with the kitty for 2 hours in the early morning hours because I heard her crying.
On Saturday morning I took it to the vet since I had a free first exam coupon. I was dying to know what gender it was and if it was healthy besides the blind eye.
Well, it’s a little girl who is guessed to be around 5 years old and she is healthy. No leukemia or aids. So glad! And after doing some shaving we discovered her scar that proves that she was spayed. But which also means that she was discarded like a piece of trash several years ago. Remember that she has been around my house for around 4 years but has always been too scared to come close until this summer. She is pretty much blind in her one eye.
You can see her bad eye in this photo where she is keeping me company while blogging. And yes I’m sitting on the bathroom floor.
And she looks very similar to our 18-year-old Manx cat Heidi, don’t you think so?
My husband and I have been arguing about her ever since. I totally understand that he says we can’t afford another cat but I told him that I have tried to find her another home and have failed. It doesn’t matter if she is inside or outside. If she’d be sick, I would take her to the vet no matter where she is. If I notice that I have a sick animal in my yard or front porch, I will take it. Don’t even think about dumping your animals on my property y’all 😉 But on top of all that arguing, my other cats aren’t happy at all either.
I really wish I could find her a great home where she isn’t getting stressed out by other cats. It would break my heart though but it would make things easier with my husband and other furry children.But our daughter is thrilled with her.
And speaking of finding cats a home…do you remember the little cat I found on my front porch a couple of weeks ago? She was so skinny and hungry!
A couple had picked her up an hour after posting her photo on my Facebook page! Well, I finally received some updates and she is doing great in her new home with her new family.
Here is a photo of her in her new home. I received some more photos but they were too personal to share 😉 :
To me, it was a successful cat rescue weekend 🙂 Sorry for all the blurry iPhone photos, it’s all I got.
Besides that, we had friends over for dinner and watched our son wrestle again.
I have another chiropractor appointment today and am trying to get well. So bare with me! I will hopefully be back to my DIYing self soon. I’m planning on sharing the instructions to our basement bar this or next week. I have been talking about it for almost 2 years. Sorry!
I’m hopefully finally getting some skiing in this afternoon. I have been looking forward to this for a while now and I’m glad I don’t need my arm or shoulder!
Hope you had a great weekend.
