Hello, my name is Sweetheart.  I was living outside and having a hard time finding enough food.  A nice couple started feeding me.  I was afraid of them but eventually started meowing for food and letting them get within a few feet of me. 

When I had kittens, I moved them to live under the couple's shed.  It made the trips to get food shorter.  I had trouble hunting enough food to feed everyone.  So, I would put up cat food in my mouth and carry it to my babies.  The couple brought us all inside and gave us a place to live.

I am good with cats.  I have not objected to them playing with my babies.  I can not tell you how I am with dogs.  There are none living here with us.

I am very wary of people. I will take treats directly out of their hand.  I will also sniff their fingers to say hello.  Once in a while I will let them pet me for a little bit.  Usually I will just shy away from them.  But, I have even brushed up against their legs.  They are working with me, but it will take time.

Please wish me luck!
