We have the sweetest, silliest cat ever. Her name is Kathryn Elizabeth.
Let me tell you the story of how she came to live with us.
One day I was doing chores in the garden and heard something crying. Looking around, I did not see anything and kept working. The pitiful sounds continued. I left my tasks and began an active search to find the upset creature. Across the street from me was the cutest, little, gray kitten with white paws.
I knelt and called her. She immediately hopped toward me just as a mini van was cruising down our street! Thankfully, the mini van stopped in time and I scooped up the tiny kitten. She was obviously well cared for and very affectionate.
Kati and I walked around the neighborhood, knocking on doors, looking for her home. Returning to our property I thought surely someone would come looking for her. That was four years ago!
I guess we get to keep her!
