She was feral. Yeah, we spotted her living under our neighbour’s porch, we have no idea where she came from. It was freezing here at the time, way below zero, and so after a few days of monitoring this poor kitten endure the elements we started putting crunchies out for her on our back porch and sure enough she’d come over and wolf them down. But, when we tried to quietly open the door, boom, she was gone! So, we called the Humane Society and they gave us a trap. That’s right, a trap, we trapped the little bugger!

Oh man, what an event that was, she went bonkers in that cage as you can imagine. We opened it in the bathroom and she bolted out like a streak of lightening, it was crazy! She was so scared she climbed the drywall to the ceiling! I’ve never heard so much hissing in my life. It took about 3 or 4 days of sitting in there with her, hours at a time and basically just ignoring her so she’d get used to us, before she finally calmed down and realized we had no intention of harming her. Feeding her was also helpful, obviously. When I finally touched her I was shocked by how skinny and frail she was, I was deceived by all her fluff but underneath it she was just a boney spinal cord and rib cage. She would not have survived much longer outside so our timing was good.

In time she became more and more confident and now today we have a normal, domesticated kitten living with us.... Anyway, she now follows us around the house everywhere we go, purring instantly when contact is made, and sleeps with us in our bed.

It took about 3 or 4 days and a lot of hard work before she finally calmed down.
