'Grab a drink (coffee or alcohol, your pleasure, I don't judge) because I have a story for you! See, when I was a wee kitten I was living outside. I am sorta/kinda missing a back foot, but no one knows why. Anyway, my former caregiver asked for help getting me and my mom spayed. The woman that helped felt badly bringing a three-footed kitten back to live outside, but the caregiver explained I stayed close to the house and had a nice nest in some tall grass. Fast forward three years and the family that had been feeding me moved away and left me (and my boyfriend, Blake) behind. Isn't that a fine kettle of fish. A nice lady that passed by my house every day going to/from work noticed the moving truck, then she saw Blake and me waiting expectantly on the front porch for the food that never came. She began stopping to bring us food and water but she knew we couldn't stay there b/c when new people moved in they might not want us. Eventually she found someone that said she would try and find us a good home, so here we are! Don't be fooled by my missing a foot; it doesn't slow me down for a second (the vet said nothing needs to be done). I get along with other kitties when I must, but it would be okay if I could have all your attention for myself. I hope to begin the next chapter of my exciting life with you, so please see what you can do about taking me home with you!'

Gwenie is very entertaining with her vocalizations (you'll see why we had to name her after a famous singer) and generally a pleasure to have around. Call 919.935.3792 to arrange to meet this pretty lady.
