We Were Walking the Dog

September 2, 2013

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.
