The Black Cat Left Us Presents
I’m sure you remember me writing about the black cat with the green eyes. Well, you will never guess (on the other hand, you might) what she left mom.
On Sunday afternoon, mom heard something in the garage and went to check it out. She looked and looked but couldn’t tell where the sounds were coming from. After going through the garage time and again, she finally looked under the tarp where our lawn mower is kept. Sure enough! There were three very tiny kittens under there.
Mom never throws anything away, especially if it breathes. She named them after the 1970s linemen from OU–the Selmon brothers: Lucious, Dewey, and Leroy. She didn’t find out they were girls until Wednesday when she took them to my vet. (It seems to me that dogs and cats should have different vets.) Dogs don’t like cats, and cats don’t like dogs. That’s just the way it is.
Anyway, Lucious weighed 13.2 ounces, and Dewey and Leroy each weighed 12.5 ounces. The way mom feeds them, they are going to be monstrous cats; maybe even bigger than me (nah, that won’t happen). Today is the first time mom fed them real food. Before that, mom fed them milk with an eye dropper. She didn’t have to do that with me, because I was 12 weeks old when I found my dad and mom; I was already wise to the world. I was thrown away, and the kittens were born in our garage but were abandoned anyway. It’s just a good thing for the Selmons that they were born close to my mom; she will love and care for them. I just wish she would quit feeding them so much.
Mom helped me write this.
