Bad to the Bone

This little furry fiend had been hanging around the Close for at least four days and nights, hiding from fireworks and trying to scrounge titbits. Yesterday we relented, caught it* and took it in for the night. I've never seen a cat so hungry - it had no problems snatching the feeding-fork from my hands in order to glean the last morsels of food from it.

The local cat rescue folk have had a good look at her and have pronounced her to be about 10-weeks old and healthy, the vet considers her to be full of worms and just over 8-weeks old.

Anyway, it looks like we've been adopted by her. If she's not claimed in the next two weeks I suppose we'll be keeping her.

* We tempted it from a garden by offering it some cat-food, but during the grabbing operation it decided to have a damned good bite of my finger instead. This kitten does look cute and cuddly, but I can vouch for the fact that it has teeth like well-honed daggers - they went in all the way until they were grinding on the bone, and it didn't want to let go. If we keep it, I reckon we'll be giving it the understated name "Nipper".

    That's not what Bob (our 16 y.o. spay) thinks - there's been much hissing, spitting, growling and moodiness from her.

    lovely! well done that man. Kittens are so much worry but so much pleasure. Treat 'em right and you'll have a friend for life. Good luck with Nipper 🙂

    Looks just like the Doodlecat! He too was a feral kitten (and also B,B,B, B, Bad to the Bone).

    Gwaaaan, keep her. You know you want to 🙂
