I met Greta 4 years ago when I received a phone call from another friend about a feral kitty and her kitten. Could I come and catch the kitten so she could be socialized and a home found. Off I went and within a short time I had the little black and white kitten that we judged to be about 7 or 8 weeks old. Much to my delight I found a home for that little kitten very quickly.
Last November Kim phoned me to ask if she could borrow my "kitten cage". She was going to try bringing Greta inside to live. For a few weeks Greta lived in the kitten cage in the master bedroom and it wasn't long before she was allowed out and had the entire bedroom as her space.
During the three weeks of feeding and caring for the kitties, I grew very attached to Greta. She is so loving and friendly and sweet. I think she must have been someone's pet at one time because she loves attention. I find it hard to believe this dear little cat lived outside for goodness knows how long and then in a short time with lots of TLC from Kim became a sweet laid back little cat.
A few days ago it became evident that Puck was very sick with no chance of recovery and he gently crossed the Rainbow Bridge. It was very sad because the week before while I was caring for him he was an energetic 9 year old kitty that loved chasing the lazer beam. On the bright side, Greta is now allowed free run of the entire house and I dare say is loving the indoor life even more now. I love you sweet Greta and I am so happy you have a home to call your own. You're a little gem. Hug hug hug
