Little Red is coming along fine, but I am wondering how I can get him from being so very shy, to being a little more bold. He just seems frightened to death right now, with his tail between his legs each time I hold him. He loves my scratches, but the second I put him down, he runs behind the toilet. His wound is not healing as well as I thought it would. Might have to call the vet today to see if this is normal. Here are a few photos of him:
I would love to find Little Red a better name. I am open to suggestions!
On my way down Parsells at 5:15 am. this morning, on my way to my first stop, I saw a kitty on the cortner, and as usual, hopped out to bring it some food and water. As I got out I saw a black woman standing there trying to talk to the kitty, so I walked up and I said something like - 'oh you like kitties!' - something dumb, as usual... :) - but she responded that she loved kitties, and that she wanted one - she - Cheryl a/k/a Butters - said she lives at 470 Grand and was moving in October and she was hoping to get an indoor kitty. I told her she had her pick in this neighborhood but she said she has cats come on her porch but that they were either a neighbors, or feral. I told her I would keep my eye open. I actually have one in mind! I cleaned out my garage the other day and found I have a LOT of cat carriers, so I may be bringing her a new kitty in her very own carrier!
Below are various pictures of some of my shelters that I took this morning - have a great day!
