Member 'Pet of the Week' with ChickScratch
(companion of Beth of ChickScratch)
This is Eureka. He was abandoned by his mom when he was about 3 weeks old. I went out for an early morning walk, and when I came home there was a tiny damp sock on my lawn (my apartment was near the laundry room). I went to pick it up, thinking that I should probably bring it to the laundry room or just toss it, when the "sock" rolled over and said "mew". I thought, "Eureka! It's a cat!" and my heart was his. I took him in, warmed him up, bottle fed him. At the time I worked backstage theatre as a dresser - Eureka lived in my apron for a while, so he could get his feedings on schedule. He's 11 now, fat and sassy, and very independent.
Thanks for letting me brag!
