We’ve tried to talk my mom into getting a pet many times. We knew she would love the company, as she lives alone. She’s always resisted. She didn’t want to be tied down, a cat or dog would be too much trouble, etc, etc. Then, Saturday we picked her up and brought her to our house for dinner. We fixed our plates in the kitchen and went outside to eat on the patio. As soon as we walked out the door, we heard a loud meowing sound. Traced the sound to under the hood of one of our cars and out popped a small kitten.
She took her home to keep until the next day, while we tried to find out who she belonged to. Needless to say, the owner couldn’t be found. How this kitten got into the car on our driveway is a mystery. Especially since this car hadn’t been driven in about a week.
The phone call I was expecting came Sunday evening. “Well, I might as well keep her” mom said. “I think we understand each other”.
Welcome to the family, little one.
