We interrupt our normal scheduled entries for some cute kitty photos!
One summer, four years ago, a neighbor rushed down a screaming baby kitty She handed us the terrified kitty, telling us the some folks were killing the litter and if we didn’t take him he’d be next. Horrified over the brutality and seeing this poor little thing with its blue eyes barely open, taken from his mama we did what any good person would do we took him in to give him a chance in life.
Jordanne took over the mama cat role and being a bottle baby our cat thinks he’s more human than cat.
We had a hard time settling on a name and finally came up with ‘Spanky’ after the character on Little Rascals. Of course he’s got a litany of “akas” but that’s he’s Christian name.
Spanky loves hanging our in the garden with the chickens and ducks (for some reason the duckies love him!) the goats not so much because Fairlight and Blackberry like to tease him by going after his tale. Our other rescued, stray kitty Cassidy tolerates him until he decides to play! She’s sevens years old but only 9 lbs and he’s like 25 lbs so she rather not be smothered by “the big boy.”
He certianly has a special place in our heart, not to metion he’s grown too!
