Please give a huge paws up and welcome the newest Star Kit, Teddy. He is 4 and a half years old from Jasper, Alabama.
Baby Kitty Teddy came into my life after a tornado. We found him outside on the ground. I actually thought he was a baby mole. I had raised two Kitty’s on bottles from 3 days old previously so I decided to give it a try again. I smuggled the little guy in to my job and kept him warm and fed under my desk. I watched him grow ounce by ounce. I took him everywhere with me. I had no idea how completely in love I would be. I’ve had many cats through the years but never one with so much attitude and personality. While I consider him a purrrfect lil Angel, his nickname by my family was Devil Cat. I have to mention it was 5 weeks before my boss found out about him. Mainly because he jumped out of my hands ran across the office and up my bosses leg. After the initial shock, and a scary glance from the boss, he was soon accepted as the office mascot. He really was spoiled by everyone.
My story is in past tense because my baby is no longer with me. He went missing Sept 21, 2015. He had been neutered and didn’t roam. He was 2 and a half years old. I had no idea I would regret letting him have his way this morning. Every morning around 4 am he would insist (loudly)on being let outside. He would welcome the sun each day on the porch outside my bedroom. I would always open the door around 6:30 and he would run in, I would give him breakfast while I got ready for work. I had no idea when I let him out that I would never see him again. The guilt still eats at me even now. We searched the area, posted posters everywhere. Posted on Facebook. Had a search team looking for him. We checked with all the vets and animal shelters. My husband covered the yard and the woods. My heart still wants to believe he is out there somewhere with a new family that loves him as much as we do. I would be honored if you would consider my little love as your daily kitten
