found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Peering through a small opening in the brush, Spanky crept as close ashe dared to the roadside where he had been discarded. He studied the creature whose ability to scale the branchless tree surpassed Spanky's own powers of climbing, and he wondered if it might be a giant, hairless cat.
As the creature performed a splendid descent to the ground, Spanky bravely inched closer, and observed as its upright form removed a circle of skin and heavy objects, and made its way to the white truck that had frightened Spanky when it first arrived.
Suddenly, a terrible loneliness and sadness overwhelmed Spanky, as he perceived that the creature, whom he now recognized to be a human man, seemed bent on departure, and was settling into the seat of the truck.
Summoning all the courage in his soul, Spanky abandoned caution, and leapt from the brush like ... like the frightened and forlorn kitten he was. Determinedly, he clambered through the still open front door of the truck, climbed up the man's pants leg, and, like a tiny black snow ball, he hurtled himself into the lap of the startled man.
Spanky's thundering purrs echoed crashingly in the cab of the truck, but their vibrations did not dislodge Spanky's desperate grip, and he clung to the motionless form to which he now found himself attached.
Finally, when he dared, he looked hopefully up into the astonished face that returned his gaze, and he watched with relief as an expression of kindness replaced a look of shock.
Although Spanky's spirited narration continues from here, we will summarize the rest of his tale. The Allegheny Power and Light lineman drove Spanky to the first rural driveway, which turned out to be that of a Hedgesville Hounds volunteer. Spanky's delight to be held does not discriminate regarding the owner of any lap that will receive him, and his thunderous purring persisted throughout the process of removing a great deal of chewing gum from his head and ears, and has not stopped yet.
He is a beautiful and healthy and round kitten with a most engaging personality and a gripping literary bent. He will bring all that and more to an adoptive home.
