Callie, the cute little calico stray who has adopted us. We haven't
had a cat for over four years, although we had talked about getting
another one some day. Evidently Callie decided now was the time.
She made herself at home on our back porch and proved her worth by
catching three voles and two field mice in the first five
is still cautious with Rowdy dog, who initially barked at her but now
ignores her like he did all our other cats. After she'd been here
for a week, we took Callie to the vet for shots and checkup. She's a
healthy nine month old, so next week she's scheduled for surgery to
make sure there won't be any kitty surprises.
of our beloved pets found us by showing up on our doorstep, and
I believe these things happen for a reason. It's serendipity, an
accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically
searching for it. Even though someone tossed her out,I'm guessing Callie cat knew we wouldn't be
able to turn her away, especially after we saw her sweet face and
heard her purr.
