Mowgli

Meet Mowgli, the newest member of the family.  He was given to us by our friend Barbara, who lives just down the street and next to the creek.  She rescued Mowgli from an abandoned litter when the homeowner moved out.  Mowgli had been bitten by a spider on his throat and Barbara had the vet treat it.  That’s why he has the shaved spot on his neck.   Because she already has a lot of cats, she asked us if we would take him in, and we agreed.

For most of the first week Mowgli hid under the bed, and hissed at Daisy, Maytag, Jingles, and Mitzie when they came near.  But gradually his fear has subsided, and he is becoming more comfortable here with us.  He and Maytag have become best buds, and he will even jump into our laps for an ear rubbing session.

Mowgli looks a lot like Loner.   Sadly, Loner is no longer with us.  We don’t know her fate; she just vanished.  We lost Bit-Bit to the highway a few months ago, and Milo, that ol’ ramblin’ tomcat, eventually stopped coming home also.   So we were down to two cats, Maytag and his mom Mitzie, when Mowgli joined the family.

We are so happy to have him join our family.  He is a sweet and beautiful kitty.
