Small Town Kitty

I am a huge animal lover, and a few days ago I discovered a little ray of sunshine in the backyard of the house I nanny at. A kitten was roaming about the backyard, and with a little coaxing it came right up to me. The kids that I watch and I played with the kitten all day, and I ended up taking it home with me. I am a lover of cats, and mine passed away last summer. For the last 8 months or so, I have been begging my mother to get another cat for her house, and this was the perfect opportunity!

The kitten is one of the sweetest I’ve ever met! She never stops purring, curls up against your neck for numerous naps throughout the day, and used her litter box on the first day. I’ve really enjoyed spending these past few days with her. I’m not 100% sure if I’m allowed to keep it here permanently. We do have a dog in the house that seems a little bit jealous of the sweet kitten, whom I have yet to name in order to not get so attached.

That’s just one of the things I like about being at home during the summer. I live in a small town, and there are lots of animals just roaming around. I’ve seen deer, groundhogs, squirrels, dogs, and cats right outside my back door!

I do really hope I can keep her! If not, anyone looking for a kitten?

Thanks for reading..
