We were about halfway down the lane when we heard a noise. At first, we thought it was a bird calling. We also noticed something black in the road. A shoe? We soon realized that the noise was coming from the black shoe and, then, it started to move toward us. Definitely not a shoe. The shoe was a kitten. She let Sweetums pick her up. She purred and cried at the same time. Definitely talented. Sweetums handed me the house keys and the kitten and I took her home and Sweetums and Gus continued down the lane.
I brought her in and put her on the counter with some kitten chow. While she ate and purred and hollered, I got out the flea drops and put one on her neck. She didn’t even notice. She had fleas and ear mites and she was starving.
