My older poodle Chelsea has to go out every morning sometime between 4:00 and 5:00 a.m. I get up and take both poodles out and then go back to bed for a while. The other morning, the instant I opened the back door, there was LOUD, LOUD meowing coming from the back part of our acre down toward the small creek bed. I had my flashlight and headed back there to see what was wrong with a cat. I might also add our weather was pretty cold that night.....high 30's. I started hearing the meowing above my head and was looking up in the trees. She was so high up in a tree I couldn't even see her with my flashlight, cause you know it was pitch black outside. I started calling her and she finally came down out of the tree. Shaking and purring away.
Lexi has promptly taken to her and has named her Midnight. We are guessing she is probably about 10 to 12 weeks old. I have driven around a bit to see if anyone is missing a kitten and no one is fessing up. She is the sweetest kitten and turns on her purring the instant she sees anyone. We have her in our garage at this point, but I think we will try to socialize her with our indoor animals Chelsea, Lucy and Tangie. Tangie will be the hardest because she is not friendly at all with other cats. She barely tolerates the dogs and doesn't really like people, only us. I'll let you know how it goes. Please, please all you other cats and kittens out there don't come looking for a home here. We have enough right now and don't need any more.
