Espoleta Pt.4

"What?" My Mommy was shocked, here was a flyer reporting a lost cat with not one but TWO photos of Little Kitty! Had Mommy not seen that cat outside every single day since we moved into the apartments? Had she not been feeding Little Kitty(along with many other people in the apartments) on a regular basis? Now here was a flyer claiming she had a home? Also that she MAY about to be having kittens? She snatched the flyer off the stairs & we rushed inside to call the owner of Little Kitty. Once inside Mommy dialed the number & a polite man answered the phone. "Yes, I'm calling about YOUR cat." My Mother was quite distressed she did not want this man to think she had stole his cat! But she had seen Little Kitty outside every hour of the day & night! She was sure Little Kitty did not have a home! Mommy explained to the man she had seen Little Kitty outside all the time. She told him how she had been feeding her & how she feared Little Kitty would have her babies outside & they would freeze or the Tom cats would kill them. To her surprise the man on the phone said he DID NOT keep Little Kitty inside as he had allergies. He also made it clear that if Little Kitty would have a home with Mommy & Daddy that she should just stay there. She was baffled, this was not the response she was expecting. When she hung up the phone she was not entirely sure what had just happened. Had this man not put up flyers looking for HIS cat? The flyer said the family wanted Little Kitty home, yet he did not want to come & get her. Mommy felt a pain in her stomach, she wasn't sure what was going to happen. What if Daddy made her get rid of Little Kitty? Mommy couldn't take Little Kitty living outside it would break her heart. Mommy was slowly being overwhelmed & it seemed all was lost. I was put in my bed, as Little Kitty's previous owner wanted to bring over her collar, rabies tag, & five months worth of flea medication. Mommy was thankful for all of those. I was upset I didn't get to meet the man, but I could hear from my bed.

When he came over he asked if Mommy had named her. "Oh yes" she replied, "I call her Espoleta, because she has a wishbone on her face." "Wonderful name, I always called her Kitty." Well my Mommy thought, now her name is Espoleta, and she has a home.

So I guess you have a new friend now. I hope you can learn to get along. Watch out when she has her kitties. It might make her grouchy.

Slobbers,
Mango

P.S. How are your sickies? Are you feeling better?

Happy if belated New Year Snuggles!

Mother & I have read your kitty posts with amazement & delight.
Espoleta is blessed with a loving family, thats all she needs.
As her big brother I am sure you will help her with her kits when her time comes.

Hope you are fairing well too.

Eduardo...we think your mommy has the making of a wonderful children's book here. She is doing a great job of telling us the story, and keeping us wanting more and more. We hope there is a happy ending for all of you.

Wooos! I think your Mum has a big and BeaWoootiful heart.
I hope the kitty appreciates it too, because cats can be a bit full of themselves!
Have fun with the kittens!

Blue said...

Hi again pup!
Delighted to have you onboard.
Yes, Mother Blue has issues in blogland, not with pups but with odd family followers who give her 'grief'.
There is an old saying that says friends matter.
Love you.
Woodstock & Blue!

I am so glad she has a good home now! Leaving her outside, unspayed, and not even giving her a name? He was NOT a good owner.

Well I hope her previous owner didnt feel he spent too much money on the flyers......that is really strange. How could he just give up on his pet and how could he keep her outside all the time.
I wonder what your daddy will say Eduardo.
Thank you Eduardo's mummy for taking care of Espoleta.

Yay! We's glad you has a kitty now, Eduardo. We thinks you's gonna really like her. Hopefully you can find homes for her baby and then get her "fixed" so she can't have more!

The OP Pack said...

So now Eduardo has a new pal - when are those kitties going to come along? Your Mom is so wonderful to help Espoleta out.

Hugs, the OP Pack

Well done! Poor little girl.

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Dear Eduardo,
I'm glad that your Mommy saved her life. Humans are funny. I think she might warm up to you after a while(a long while). Please be nice to her, and I just know things will become normal; and, then life with kitty will be as if it was always like that.

River said...

What a great story! Although we too don't understand the man's reaction. Why act as if the kitty were a pet when the actions say otherwise? At least she is safe. Kinda hard to accept you're not the only one though. I don't think I ever will!

love & wags,
River

Stella, Gunther & Betty said...

Hmmmm. Kitties have a way of using those claws without any warning. Just steer clear Eduardo. Steer clear...

oorvi said...

Oh oh!
That's a difficult situation. Does this man want Little Kitty back or not - and now with the kittens on their way, he needs to at least help your mom with some decision-making!

But thanks for the story. Your mom's got the talent of telling stories:)

I hope that the New Year is good for everyone, Little Kitty and her litter included.

Licks and wags,
Oorvi
