The first week of July we found a very young kitten in our barn, barely 2 weeks old we estimated, abondoned by it's mother (a feral orange cat). I left food & water out because we couldn't get to it underneath our barn to catch it. We heard little meow's for a few days after discovering it and then nothing for a week. My hubby figured it had died because it was so young and didn't have a mama to feed it. A week after we didn't hear anything, I began hearing little "mew" sounds coming from underneath our pump house (which is near where our motorhome is parked and which we are living in). Sure enough...kitten moved out there so I began setting food & water out again as well as a live animal trap to try & catch it. Only thing I caught was one of our own barn cats! Weeks have gone by...we've been trying to befriend the kitten who has taken up residence underneath the chassis of the motorhome, mostly on top of the big tires, which is where I feed it most of the time as our other dogs/cats want its food.
This kitten is very skittish and hides from us all the time so I hadn't been able to really get near it. A few days ago...major break through! Kitten let me touch it...and then a day later, I was able to pick "her" up and pet her! She is now becoming quite friendly although she is still skittish. We've had a few laughs watching her chase after the big German Shepherd dog and the little Yorkie as they walk around the motorhome.
We call her "Squeak" because that's what she sounds like when she meows. She's kind of grown on us....just what we needed, another stray...but if she turns out to be a good hunter she is welcome to stay!
Is this not the cutest face ever?
