Jenny, Who Needs a New Home!

After Ally came and went last fall, Pat promised that We Nine would have veto power over any new residents.  SO we were more than a bit annoyed when Jenny arrived, in March 2010:

Pat explained to us that Jenny has had SUCH a hard life: Although she loves people, in February 2009, Jenny was dropped off in a field, and left there all alone, cold and hungry, to fend for herself. Not long after, she gave birth to five kittens.

So far, the story sounded a bit familiar to us, at least to Hershey and his sisters, who were also dumped, with their mother, in somebody's field. That was a long, long time ago, and we do our best not to remember how frightened we were. Still, we couldn't help but wonder: what happened to Jenny's kittens?

Oh, said Pat, they weren't as lucky as you guys, who were found right away and brought to the Humane Society. Jenny's kittens were all eaten by coyotes. And that's not the end of the sad story: Jenny had another litter, and those kittens also were eaten!

Well, we all got scared just listening to Pat tell us about Jenny's poor little kittens, eaten by big hungry coyotes. Still, we couldn't help but wonder - how did Jenny end up in OUR house?

Oh, said Pat, Jenny was rescued by the Cat Action Team of Prince Edward Island, whose volunteers help feral cats by feeding them, building shelters for them, and providing medical care. But the volunteer who was taking care of Jenny realized she is not a feral cat: she is a tame, loving little girl, who deserves a good home just like all of you guys.

Right, we all said.  So let's find her a home -- a home of her own, that is, not OUR home!

I hope Jenny will find a new home with a loving family soon! Until then, you all play nice with may find she's your best friend :)

Oh! Eaten by coyotes! Oh!!!!


This is just another reason I can't stand most humans. We are the worst species on the planet, bar none. I feel a rant coming on, so all I'll write is that I'm glad Jenny is with you and presumably spayed now. Fingers crossed she finds her forever home--whether with you or with someone else!

Oh... Jenny's had such a tough time. Poor little thing! She's so beautiful. We hope that you'll welcome her into your home until she can find a forever home!
Lots of purrs, Keiko Kenji & Pricilla
