As many of you probably know, the cat that adopted us about 2-3 years ago, Bosephus, has been gone for approx 2 months now. I don't know if he was dinner for one of the coyotes that live in them thar hills, or if he got hit by a car. He did like to roam in the evenings and at night. Since he's been gone, the mice have been plentiful and the moles have gone crazy making tunnels in the yard. DH and I had decided to find a female kitty that might be more inclined to stay around and not roam so much. One of our very distant neighbors had kittens back in February and we had about decided just to get one of his when they are old enough, maybe sometime in July.
As luck would have it, this one appeared today. We assume someone just dropped her in the country because we believe she is pregnant. At first we thought she had just had babies, but she's seems a little young, she's not a year old yet. So, we'll see if she sticks around. I've named her Callie because she's obviously a calico.
