Updated on November 27, 2011

silent like dark street gutters

purring in my lap

      homesteadbound, this kitty transformation was a pleasant surprise for us. They do love to be loved. Don't we all!

      I like to take a cat that is wild and transform them into lovers. It takes time, but they love to be loved on!

      Hi, Debby

      Yes, after one year, this gutter kitty finally let us pet her nose. Then a few more weeks for permission to pet her back. Now, 1 1/2 years later, she trips me all the time, rubbing on my legs for attention. A regular house cat now. We love her!

      Dear Chaplin ~ This lost stray cat adopted you? You've give her a home. Blessings, Debby

      Thanks, Hyphenbird. Another funny thing about this cat - After one year of slinking up our porch to sneak some food, we had all kind of names - Scaredy, Blackie, Black-boy, Black-bo, the list goes on. Finally made a trip to the vet for shots and found out Black-boy was a girl! She's just Blackie now.

      He is adorable. And the Haiku is purrfect. I believe all animals long to be loved and accepted as a beloved pet. I like this very much.

      Thanks, Susan. This cat was 100% feral, living in a gutter, and now is a sweet pet! I always wonder about the chipped ear.
