~~Farmington Crew plus one - Shenanigan
So may unwanted and stray kitties are turned into rural shelters, and honestly; most of them never make it out alive. In most rural communities there are animal lovers that spend quite a bit of time nagging rescues like us to help out. And when we have room we most certainly try to help. A mama and four babies were turned into the Farmington shelter and were held for us by a local resident until we had room to take them in. During that time a very friendly tortie showed up at the same house and insisted on being let inside. She joined the mama and babies and you would never know she was not part of the group to begin with. Once all were vetted and tested I added another kitty to the mix from a farm in Troy, MO. And she was happy and accepted as part of the litter immediately. So from mama and four to mama and six in short order! Mama is very quiet, friendly, accepting of any other cats, and very patient with the kids. There are three calico kitties in this group; the dilute calico was added from Troy. Two kitties black with white and one of those had to have an eye removed and is recovering nicely. And that leaves the tortie that added herself while still in Farmington! ALL kitties are girls. Now this is very unusual indeed! Mama is Misa #10448CL, her calico babies are Celestia #10436CL and Saskia #10438CL. The black and white girls are Lilla #10439CL, she is missing her left eye; and Miralla #10441CL. The tortie is Cyra #10442CL, and finally the dilute calico is Shenanigan #10443CL. All kitties are spayed, up to date on shots, negative for FIV and FeLV, treated for parasites, and micro chipped. Celestia and Shenanigan are the shy ones of the bunch. Very affectionate once comfortable, but trust is earned not given freely. These two need a quieter home with patient pet parents!
