Dear Crissy - Life, blogged.

Meet Sally

Just before midnight, on New Year’s Eve, we discovered three kittens meowing furiously under our back deck.

Meet Sally

The trio were apparently dumped in our yard, something the unfortunately happens a lot in our area.

We’re trying to find homes for two of the kittens, but this girl — we named her Sally — she’s going to be staying.

I am probably totally nuts for bringing a furball into my already chaotic home. Scratch that, I’m definitely nuts.

She’s pretty sweet though, right?

    She is very adorable. Love her eyes.

    Awww I say keep all three … or maybe two so she’ll have a buddy. Cats are quiet and stay out of trouble … well … except for my pair that tag team chewing up electrical cord.

    Pretty little kitty. In one week’s time, a kitten had been dropped off at my brother’s, sister’s, and my house. Ea. 20 mi. apart. We all took them in. Around here, if you don’t, it will be killed because there aren’t enough people to adopt them. So, if at all possible, I hope you will keep all 3 unless you personally find another loving home for them. People are so cruel. Good luck, and thank you for taking the precious kittens in!

    awww hi Sally! She’s adorable, can’t blame you for keeping her. Of course, I would probably try to keep all 3 but that’s me :P good luck finding homes for the other 2

    That is a picture of contentment! She’s a doll.

    Omg, absolutely adorable!! The same thing happens in my neighborhood, too, all the time. I’ve found homes for several cats and some dogs. There are some cats who I’ve never been able to find homes for and it breaks my heart, they’re out in the cold. I leave food for them and let them come in for short periods to warm up, but my cat doesn’t appreciate it one bit! I’m so glad you gave Sally a great home! :)

    No crazier than us when our son brought home 2 little furballs that had been abandoned in the middle of our snowy winter.They are now 2 gorgeous long haired cats called Eeyore and Itachi.Eyeore steps in whenever he thinks his brother is in trouble and Itachi regularly cleans Eeyores ears in payment :)
    Enjoy many wonderful years with your furbaby.

    Awww! That’s how we got our cat Sophia. We heard her meowing in our back yard. We tried leaving her out there overnight to see if the momma cat came back but she was at our back door the next morning. We’ve had her for just over 9 years now and she’s the best! :)

    Awwwww–she’s a cutie. Are you sure you don’t want to keep at least one more—I’ve found that cat’s are happiest if they have a pal.

    • January 7, 2013 @ 11:27 am

      I agree on the pal part – it would be nice if she could have someone to play/be with. But then that would leave the adoptee-to-be alone as well if she were to keep two kitties. Which is sad, but not as sad as being dumped by someone(s) in a random yard.

      At the very least, they’ll be together for a shortwhile in great hands while they wait for their forever home.

    Same thing happens where I live. I am actually the neighborhood crazy cat lady, because I feed the stray/feral cats and dogs around here. The cats for the most part are unadoptable because they are so wild and our local shelter waits 3 days and kills all strays brought in, so I just keep feeding them and I have a box set up with blankets on the porch for anyone that is cold and wants somewhere warm and safe to sleep. It breaks my heart that people won’t spay/neuter their pets and then abandon animals to the elements.
