Hello, my name is Mighty Whitey. I began my stray life searching for companionship and food in the bushes of the Split Rock area, since I did not have a home. I was skinny. In May 2008, I wandered onto my foster mommy’s back porch were she fed me lots of food and love. I was VERY VERY appreciative! I thought, hmmm … I can do this!
Mommy and the CNY Cat Coalition nursed me into better health. I got neutered, got all my immunizations, got flea/ear mite medicated; I ate well and I felt secure with a roof over my head. I shared this new space with Marshall, mommy’s other kitty. I love to tussle with him, he’s my friend. I’ve been happy to sleep inside at night and to be outside during the day, but always careful to remain close to the house (this was a good deal). I enjoy rolling in the grass, chasing leaves and birds and mice, always staying near people! Sometimes I get a little bit rough while playing and I sometimes mommy says I bite too hard, but I will learn. Since I walk with a limp, my foster mommy (& CNY CC) again took me to the vet. The vet took X-rays of my right paw and discovered an old fracture that has healed and that has left me with some soft tissue damage. My paw doesn’t hurt me but it does look painful when I walk. I can certainly outrun you and I can climb trees like a squirrel!
My mommy absolutely believes that I am the most PEOPLE FRIENDLY and APPRECIATIVE kitty that she has ever seen! Having no home was traumatic for me, so when I had a loving human with a house and yard … then I really understood the word APPRECIATIVE! I will follow you around (always ten steps behind you) the house and yard. If you’re busy and you leave me for a piece of the day/night in the garage or basement, I’m complacent … I won’t pester you.
If you let me in and out of the house, you’ll never see anything in my litter box. I’m between 1 and 2 years old.
Where did I get my name? Well I thought you’d never ask! Well I’m white, so “Whitey” has made me easy to differentiate from Marshall, my other cat friend who is brown. Before I was neutered, I sprayed the entire outside perimeter of mommy’s house. That lawn area (my territory) smelled absolutely fantastic, but mommy didn’t agree! She thought the yard was mighty stinky! Then … I became Mighty Whitey! After being neutering, I have never sprayed again, but the name remains. You asked!
