I thought I would write about one of my kitties that I don't think I have mentioned about. This is Jupiter. My daughter found him one spring day in the neighbors yard and noticed that he looked hungry. He was really skinny and dirty. If you looked at his paws you could tell he had been traveling for a long time. So you know what happens when you feed a stray, yep...they are yours forever. You could tell he didn't feel good either because he had a crusty runny nose and eyes. I took him to the vet and found out he had a upper repository infection. Got a antibiotic and he got better. I made him a little bed in the garage with a old chenille robe of mine and keep the small door of the garage open for him to come and go as he pleased. He had his own bowl of food and water. So he spent that whole summer outside and we took care of him. Then it got to to be October and I just couldn't see him spending the winter outside. SO I brought him in with my other 2 cats and he has lived with us now, for 10 years. I often wished he could talk and tell me where he came from and what his name was. When he first came around you could tell that his previous owner might have hit him, because he would bow his head down when you would go to pet him like he was afraid. But the funny thing is he loved to sit in your lap and if you tried to put him down he would bite you. I wonder all the time how old he is. The vet couldn't really tell, he said maybe a year or two old then. I love his freckles on his nose. :)
