where our kitten was found
Thursday morning, two hikers from our neighborhood were on a morning walk near the airfield and heard meowing. She came right up to them, of course, and they realized that she needed help and took her home where they gave her cat food and water. She ate all the food and drank half the bowl of water. Then they took her to the SPCA and we soon got the phone call that our kitten had been found.

She was underweight, full of flees and her collar was missing. The most shocking news of all was that our female kitten was not a female, but a male. When we adopted him from the SPCA, we were told that it was a girl. Now Tabitha has a new collar and a new name, Prince! We've ordered tags for both our kitties too with their names and a contact number. I hope Sheela doesn't give us a surprise and turn out to be a boy too, because then we'll have to change her name and order a new tag!

Both kittens are getting along well. It took Sheela about a day or two to not be afraid of Prince. Now they play together, which is really cute. Sometimes it gets a little rough, and we try to break them up.
Amanda is so happy to have Prince back home. She loves cuddling with him. Sheela allows us to pet her a little, but she's still a bit wild.
