Our Stray Kitten 'Mishu Socks' by 

963 views at 26/11/2013

A tiny kitten was brought in after it had been found (collapsed) in full sun, when the temperature in the shade was 36!!
We take in many strays and take care of them until we can find them a new home. We already had 11 ex stray pets, of our own, but the new foundling somehow twisted our arm and became the 12th pet member of our family.
From a very tiny, dirty, weak and disheveled baby he has grown into a wonderful ‘hyper active’ family member and our young dog Patrick’s bundle of joy.

Mishu is now all grown up.

    BEAUTIFUL work

  • Thank you Ann :)
    Mishu is a real character and thinks that he is equal his friend Patrick who is our young dog who is 100 times his size :):)

    This is an extremely cute kitten. Great photo as well.

  • He plays none stop and often goes missing when he hides in the tiniest and most unaccessable places :)

    What a precious little baby! God bless you for being able to take in “just one more”. It’s just as easy to count 12 heads as it is 11! ;o) ~hugs Terri

  • We keep saying: “This is definitely the last!” :)
    We have a house in the country that is their permanent base, complete with many rooms, beds and when we are there, 2,000sqm of grass and trees to play in. A cat heaven :)
    We are there for the whole of the summer, school holidays, weekends and every other spare minute that we can find.
    Best wishes

    Where we live…in the country, we go through the same thing as you…We are on our 5th cat, Jumper a ginger tabby. He is all we have now. But we also had a most wonderful Dog that came to us at about 6 mo. old. he had chewed throught the rope knotted around his neck. He became our wonderful 127 lb. “T-Bone” A pyeranese mix….the vet figured his other blood was from a golden….And he had found one of our stray cats and let us know that he wanted us to adopt “Bonkers” the huge Orange furball. Thankyou for being their for all of the wonderful pets you have helped.

  • Thank you :)
    We also have a feeding station at our apartment in town that is always open to any cat that is hungry :):)
    I fancy having a goat now but, my wife keeps looking at the calves that are regularly born to the dairy cows around us…….
