Default F4A291 There Once Was a Kitty Named Pumpkin (9.18.15)

Hi all! Jeanne here today!

Not too long ago we had a stray (and very skinny) Calico cat show up at our house. It was during the heat of the summer so I put some water out for her thinking she'd find her way home. Pretty soon I figured out she didn't have a home at all so I started feeding her too. Slowly she became friendly enough so that I could pet her. Then one day she decide to let me close enough to pet her and I noticed she was filling out a bit.... well you probably know what is coming next. I kept a close eye on her for the next couple weeks and then brought her inside (she has her own bedroom) and now we have 5 kittens too.

I named her Pumpkin.





My challenge today is to include a pumpkin in your project.

In case anybody is wondering about the kitten names.

Boys (the two orange striped ones) - Cheeto and Frito
Girls - Sundae (Calico), Sprinkle (black & white) and Cherry (Grey & White)

That's why I don't name my chickens until I know if they are girls or boys.

The kittens were just begging for names. They are mine for the next few weeks at least.

Jeanne - Wonderful story about your kitty - I understand. Ours starts out with "There once was a kitty named Leo..." Fortunately he was a "he" so we didn't end up with six! You are a very special and kind person to take in a pregnant stray.

Here is my pumpkin card:
