This kitteh kat with the eyeliner eyes is from our cattery at the ISPCA. We name her Mei Mei after one of the volunteers. She was surrendered with her sibling to the cattery when the owner could not take care of them anymore. Both very young cats, her sibling being a very beautiful Russian Blue lookalike was adopted out quite quickly. That left her alone and vunerable in a cattery full of free roaming older cats.
When i first set my eyes on her... i only remembered that she's very vocal. She'll meow and meow and meow to get your attention and for you to pick her up. She just needed to be loved. She'll start licking your fingers when you play with her and after a while, she'll forget that your fingers are not chicken and try and nibble on them.
We finally got her rehomed to a girl last month. She was all excited to have Mei Mei and quickly took her to her new home. After a week, Mei Mei got sent back to the cattery for exploring too much. She was up on
the roof and out of the window and on someone else's balcony.
The Intrepid Explorer is back at the cattery.
Mei Mei is only about 7-8 months. Being a very young cat, she would be up to quite a lot of exploring. Their need to go out and explore the world is quite hard to be contained. Cats are explorers. They love to go up and down and everywhere.
All the cats in the cattery are laughing @ her for getting sent back. She's not too amused by all the laughter and has gone into hiding in one of the big boxes in the runs. Very sad to see her getting sent back when she was hopeful that she found the right home with the comfy bed and all.
We are hopeful that Mei Mei will be 3rd time lucky and find a home which has a big open space for her to explore. Would anyone love to have a fearless and bold lil girl who loves to lick fingers?
Rehoming the kitteh kats in the cattery in a tiring job. Each time a cat goes home, we are happy for them. We also feel a tad sad as some of them has grown on us. But we do not want to keep healthy cats in the cattery and deprive them of a loving home. The shelter is only suppose to be a halfway home until we find them a good home.
Our wish is to rehome as many as possible before the year is over. Wish us luck :)
