Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Kit Katie’s Challenges


I’m just gonna step up right here and right now. I don’t want Kit Katie to live here anymore. I don’t care how much she tries to win me over. Ain’t happening folks, not one teensy bit. And The Kid Sage pretty much feels the same, sort’a.

So I am gonna turn this blog post over to Mom L.

Hi everyone, Mom L here.

We are indeed having troubling times with our two resident adult cats, Savvy who is a senior at thirteen years old and Sage who is middle aged at seven years old. They hiss, snarl at Katie, which we understand is cat speak for “not on my turf kid”!! And yes, we had Katie separate for about five months when she was first with us, and with Lilly. We do know how to introduce a new kitty.

But doing so with our two grouchy girls has been so stressful for Katie, she developed conjunctivitis and kitty chin acne. And, no, we do not feed nor water with plastic anything.

This is photo shopped

And this is what she really looks like because her eye drains constantly now.

Two vet checks later, and they believe she has a scared tear duct in her right eye which means this draining discoloration forever. As if her limp in her right front leg wasn’t enough to hold her back from being adopted.

Finally, Sunday, Community Concern For Cats, at no cost, allowed us to have Katie’s front legs/shoulders to be X-rayed. And yes, our good friend and feline expert retired Veterinarian Miss Josie found that Katie does indeed have an abnormality in her right shoulder joint. It doesn’t have the smooth joint connect that her left does. Another detriment to potential adopters, but at least now we have proof that she isn’t suffering, has adapted well and runs, plays and loves life even with this itty bitty bump!

Katie is only isolated to my very lovely office enclosure at night. She likes to have a bit of privacy and we need to sleep. We have her out as soon as she has her brekkies and she has come to join us on the bed with the other two snarky girls!

Katie literally begs them to accept her and allow her to snuggle, play with them.

I just love the view of water and birds!

and then this…

There she goes with her “show me her tummy” routine…sheesh!!

And this…

You can see my tummy, ok?

And more…

don’t ‘cha think I am sweet?

More again…

oh, are you gonna let me get a whiffy of your tail?

More simply got her a hiss from TKS…

Katie has discovered that she can have her long morning nap right near Savvy, on the outside of Savvy’s favorite tent. TKS used to grab this spot but Katie gets there faster even with her limp!! MOL!!!

Dad P and I thank all of you for believing that Kit Katie, sweet KK, has already found her forever home. However, we know that for her to live her entire life with us (and she will likely outlive us) means that she never again knows that warmth of snuggling with another kitty as she did with Lilly. She never again knows the joy of chasing and “ressling” with another kitty. Her life will be lived by half.

Katie retires to the stairs to look down on family nights, with Savvy next to me on the couch and Sage next to Dad P on his recliner chair. Katie has no place to spend time with us in this family routine. Oh yes, we try and we try, but it isn’t happening.

Dad P and I ask that any of you who are willing, please help us help precious Kit Katie find her much needed forever home. She has earned it, she deserves it.

You can find Kit Katie’s profile at the following links:

Community Concern For Cats

Contra Costa Humane Society

Petco Re-Homing

Please don’t ever think that we don’t love this very special survivor kitten. What she endured from birth until the time we rescued her from her horrific hoarding situation is unthinkable. All we care about is her ability to live a joyful life as she so deserves. Sharing her with any of your friends, relatives, contacts, etc. in the San Francisco Bay Area is greatly appreciated.

Show Katie’s badge on your blog with great pride.

Dad P and I appreciate you hangin’ around to read this blog post.

  11. Oh, Savvy, thus really touched my heart. So sad when they can’t get along with another. We purray and I cross my paws to find a furrever home soon. Good Luck Pawkisses are on the way❤❤❤

  13. Oh bless her. It takes a special kind of love to make sure she has the right home, and a special kind of home to make sure she has the love and care she needs—which to be fair is not that great as she is a get along kind of gal. Here’s hoping Little Miss Katie finds she has won someones heart through just showing herself as she is on your blog.

    We are so very sad for Katie, we were hoping that Savvy and Sage would embrace her we know that you already do. We will try our best to find her a castle of her own.

  15. I am so sad for Katie, and I hope there is a home out there that is ready for her soon! She sounds like a very sweet girl.

    Poor Katie. I wish I could adopt her. Emmy has a leaky eye too, I was told it was a blocked tear duct.

    We are purraying and sending POTP for pretty Katie (and Savvy and TKS too). We are all adult cats, as well as clear across the country from you,so we can’t help in any better a way !

    Poor Katie. Poor Savannah and Sage. We sure hope Katie can find her forever home soon. Maybe she should be kept separated from the others until she does? Is that possible?

    • She craves human interaction and interaction with other cats. We could not leave her alone in my office hearing all the sounds of the rest of us interacting around the house. Not fair to this very social kitty. She would be part of our family in a heart beat, even cleaning Savvy and Sage is they would let her. She is such a social kitty with other cats.

  19. We would let her come here but Rumpy and Einstein are causing hiss and whack issues here so it would be from frying pan to possible fire. We have Katie’s link on our page and are sending support of purrs and prayers
    Timmy and Family

    • You are all so very kind. Katie will be such a welcome addition to any human household that will give her a chance to show them what she has shown us. She needs experienced, patient cat savvy humans and at least one other kitty her age our younger she can bond with.

  20. Katie we hope you get your hearts little wishes soon, purrs.

  21. We sure hope that sweetie gets her wish come true soon.

    I am so sorry that Katie, and you too, are going through this. It would hurt my heart as well. It does hurt my heart. She does deserve love. If Lilly could have gone with her…or she with Lilly it would be so much better.

    I will get my sharing amped up for Katie. This hurst my heart to read poor sweet girl.

  25. Oh we hope there is a way to find the katie castle….

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
