We had been feeding this little feral cat named “Little Tiger” for a few years, but usually had to stand guard to let her eat because the other tougher feral cats would scare her off. She had obviously belonged to someone somewhere and was more than willing to be an insider again. So when the first week of January 2017 brought a promise of very low temperatures, in the teens, we gave in and brought her in.
Here we are at the local vet, where she was chipped and treated for an ear infection. She had already been spayed in her past life, but was given new vaccinations. This vet – as every vet since – told us she was the best behaved kitty they ever had.
And here she is back at home with her new friend Tom, and beginning to explore her new home. We changed her name from Little Tiger to Freeda since she was adopted as an indoor cat on a Friday, which Tom calls the “Free Day.”
