Good New for Kitty the Ex-library Cat

If you read my blog the other day and have been worrying about Kitty the ex-library Cat I have some more news and I can happily say that the news is good.

There is a happy ending to the sad tale of Kitty the ex-library Cat and if you are sitting comfortably I will begin.

After the Musser Public library decided that Kitty didn’t have a future with the library service Kitty’s prospects looked grim. Like any other stray she was destined for a shelter, a place where all too many Cats end up through no fault of their own in fact, there is usually a human holding a smoking gun in the background somewhere I hasten to mention.

But happily The Cat can tell you that Kitty’s fate was not the same as 70 million or so feral or stray Cats that live rough in the US (according to the ASPCA www.aspca.org www.aspca.org) a nice kind lady was reading the ‘Muscatine Journal’ a local newspaper that carried the story and she has offered Kitty and her fleas a home.

For the moment Kitty is at her new home hiding under the sofa, probably trying to work out where everything went wrong, but she has a new family who will love her and hopefully feed her Prawns regularly if not hourly and it won’t be long until she is leaping from one piece of furniture to another and mounting expeditions to climb the front room curtains.

Kitty No Longer the Library Cat

Everyone here at Cat World and I know my lovely cuddly readers wish this poor Cat well and hope that she manages to stay flea free…sorry had to stop there for a scratch.

…Then another scratch. You can tell summer is coming can’t you!

A Happy Ending – For A Change

Workers at a British supermarket recently opened a sealed crate from Malaysia and just couldn’t believe what was inside. From the warm darkness a pair of shining eyes looked up at them and they heard a little squeak.

The eyes and the squeak belonged to a brave little kitten who had survived a journey of several thousand miles for over a month by licking condensation off the walls of the crate.

It goes without saying that the kitten was tired, hungry and very thin, but when the staff of the supermarket picked her up and gave her a hug she started to purr and meow for food. This lucky kitten couldn’t have turned up, or is that have been unpacked in a better place, and the supermarket workers were soon offering small amounts of the best cat food and some water.

The sensible supermarkets workers also called in the RSPCA – which is the UK version of the ASPCA – who checked her over and declared that although she was hungry she was healthy, probably about 8 weeks old and after staying in quarantine for six months will be given a new home in the UK. Of course offers to home the well travelled kitten have been pouring in.

It is thought that the kitten most likely crawled into the crate when it was awaiting loading in the port of Penang. The crate with the kitten inside would have been first placed inside a container and sealed so that it can’t be tampered with or of course be used by people wanting to illegally enter the UK, then the container would have been loaded into the hold of the ship for the three week voyage to the UK.

At Southampton the container would have been loaded onto a lorry to complete the final part of its journey and as they say – you know the rest – there was quite a surprise for the people unpacking one particular crate.

Isn’t it nice to have a happy ending for a change?
