Excuse me!
Can't a girl get any privacy?  Patty photobomb
Ta Da!  Drum roll please....introducing Sweetie!  Formerly known as Mama Mia, Sweetie is a Friendly Feral who has been with us for over five years.  Yes, she once had kittens, but those days are long behind her, and she just wants to be a sweetie from now on.  She sleeps in the Cat Hotel, first floor level, and dislikes eating her kibble from the bowl, preferring kibble poured directly on the feeding station floor.  I wipe things down to make sure she's not licking up dirt and snail trails.  I insist that Sweetie and Patty O'Malley get plenty of wet food too, which Patty usually pushes over the bowl's edge and he eats it off the tabletop!  What is it with these two?

We've tried for years to re-name Sweetie, which is why Mama Mia stuck to her for so long.  Last week, the hubby had a 'a-HA' moment, and the light bulb that went off over his head was 'Sweetie'.  Of course I liked the name right away, since I already baby-talk her with "who's my little sweetheart?"  Sweetie has come a long way since her early days as a scaredy feral who ran anytime a human was around, and now I can pet her and give her chin scritches.  The hubby's new campaign is to get to hold Sweetie someday soon, and again I'm all in with this!

Say hello to Sweetie!
