I Done My Good Deed

Post by Rhonda Rub » Tue, 09 Jul 1996 04:00:00



With all the bickering, sniping and off topic crossposts appearing here, I
thought I'd post something about...well...a cat. Actually, it's about a
kitten. And, like the kitten, it's a warm, fuzzy story.

When I walked into the office this morning, I saw a coworker and one of my
part-timers standing over a very cute kitten. Apparently it was locked in
the building all weekend. I looked at it and noticed it had been in a fight
or attacked, as there was wound on its cheek. It's also got a few more
scabs on it. None of the wounds is infected. In addition, the back claws
seem as though they've been chewed on or they've been scratched down the
the toes...like the kitty was trying to get out of someplace. The front
claws seem OK. Her other characteristics are: Orange tabby markings on top
of her head, down her back and on her tail. Everything else is white.

She followed me to my desk. If anyone moved, she'd run over to them. For
this reason, I suddenly called her Underfoot. My coworker ran and got her
some Kitten Chow while my part-timer got her some water. She didn't eat
much, but she goes back to the bowl I fashioned out of a coffee filter. I
decided she needed a home. Since we already have four (and a Yorkie) I knew
I couldn't keep her. So I made some phone calls and also tried to locate a
no-kill shelter in Houston to ensure she'd get some veterinary care.

In the meantime, Underfoot kept wandering around the office. She wandered
over the fax machine and made a few beeps. She wandered over the keyboard
of my cowoker. She wandered over my keyboard. Then she settled on my lap.
She seems to like it there. If anyone enters my office, she jumps down,
runs over and says, "hi" in a raspy, non-kittenlike meow. Then she comes
back to me, jumps into my lap, curls up and falls asleep.

Another of our department's part-timers told me he would adopt her. He's
been looking for a playmate for his orange tabby. He's going to take her to
the vet on his way home. I told him that the cat stays right in my lap for
the rest of the day...and I get visiting rights. She's just so cute. I
think she's had a few hard few weeks of life. Now she's found some humans
who she knows aren't going to hurt her, and she's sleeping...soundly...in
my lap.

OK everyone...a collective "Awwwwww." ;^)

Awwwww! ;-)

What a great story Rhonda.  Glad to hear she has a home....and so quickly.
 With all the split-stuff going on, it's nice to hear a happy story 'bout
(one more!) itty bitty kitty!

Too late -- I was going "awwww!" all through the story and I'm
all out of them. I'm glad that this wonderful little marmalade
moggy is getting a home and that she was still so trusting of humans
after her experience.

Well, at least you got an Awwwwww out of me!  :)
(The best thing was that your last line - quoted above - was off of the
screen & I was in the middle of an awwwww when I paged down & read it -
it made for a good chuckle!)
Congrats on your good deed & best wishes to the one who adopted the kitty!!
:) :) :)

Here's an update:

The kitty went to the vet where her wounds were treated. She also has ear
mites, which are also being treated. According to her new daddy, she's
exploring her new digs and is attempting to get along with her new big
sister.

Thanks for the story. It was so sweet ... I forwarded it to my husband
and enjoyed it also. Please let us know how Underfoot is doing in her new
home.
