As most of you know, I have two cats, Red and Sunday. Sunday is the most affectionate and wants to be on my lap a lot of the time.

When he first came home with me he was an injured barn kitten having fallen out of the hay loft and injured his eye. Cow mature was stuck to his tiny body. Although there were other barn cats there, his mother had been missing for a week. The farmer suspected a coyote had gotten the mother cat.

Once I saw the state this poor little black and white kitten was in, I couldn’t leave him there to die. I wrapped him in a blanket I had in the car and brought him home. My other cat, Red, was not impressed and thought he was a rat or something. Luckily I had a cage to keep Sunday safe until Red figured out he was of the same species.

Once I got him home and bathed him, it was a struggle to feed him at his young age. It seemed the other adult cats on the farm had been providing Sunday with fresh mice to eat. For the first week or two he would only eat raw meat. Gradually he was able to eat the same cat food as Red.

As for the injured eye, it didn’t look like it would ever be right. Every day I bathed it in a mild solution of warm water and baking soda. Some days after the bathing solution, I would dap a tiny smidgen of castor oil on his eyelash. Gradually the eye improved and now both eyes look healthy and identical.

Sunday is an unusual name but it was on a Sunday he became a member of the household.

!CATtip 40

Thanks so much @saboin and for the cat tips.

Here have some !COFFEEA 5

This doesn’t always work.

!COFFEEA 15

Thanks for trying, anyway! :-)

The CATtips only started yesterday, but they seem to work every time. I've used it quite a bit and haven't had any problems. Maybe the account that distributes the COFFEEA doesn't have enough resource credits. That happened to beerlover. Too many people were calling for !BEER and the account ran out of resource credits.

@c0ff33a started the COFFEEA tokens and sometimes he has to reset the bot, @saboin.

@redheadpei Sunday is a very lucky kitty, I am sure he knows it, too. My Granddaughters friend raised a kitten which was 3 days old the mother died. she would get up round the clock to feed it and took it everywhere with her, except school, then it would be with her older sister. The kitten is now 5 years old. I would have bet the kitten would not have made it but Sage was committed.

Sunday has grown into a great cat. he and red have their little spats but generally get along.

I’m sure Sage’s commitment to the orphaned kitty saved it’s life. I love hearing these happy endings when an animal is saved from uncertain conditions. 😊

@redheadpei yes I know Sage saved the kitty's life and it shows what a caring soul Sage has I am proud of her, she has been my granddaughter's friend for much of her 18 years so I feel she is my granddaughter, too.
