Tuesday Telling - Teddy's Story

Teddy 26

Teddy HERE, to tell you all ABOUT how I got here!

About three weeks ago, I was lost. I had no idea where my family was and I was very sad and lonely. It was warm but raining, and I didn't know what to do. I curled up under the bushes in the front yard of a house in the street I was in. A lady came out of the house to check her mail and I thought she looked nice, so I came out from the bushes and said hello. She said hello kitty, and scratched me under the chin. But she went inside and left me out there.

I tried to get her attention by crying, but I don't think she could hear me. So I put my little paws up on the window ledge, and tried to look in the house. I didn't know it then but the lady was inside trying not to listen to me cry. She told her husband all about me at lunch that day, and when he came home I tried to say hello to him too. They put out a cat carrier for me, with a nice dry towel inside, and gave me some food and water. I was so hungry I gobbled it all down right away.

The next morning the lady and the man went off to work, but the lady came home early. I was still waiting for her. When the man got home, he brought me inside. I got a new towel to sleep on, some more food and water, and I got shut in the bathroom. The next day, I had to go the v-e-t and they did all sorts of things to me but I was a good boy and didn't cry. The v-e-t said I was 11 weeks old, and I weighed 1.2kg.

I now have my very own comfy bed to sleep in, a full food bowl and plenty of water and toys. I have a mum and a dad, and a big sister.

My name is Teddy Westlife, and I am home.

Hey hey, Teddy. You've already got your mom and dad wrapped around your cat-claws, but you need to work on my bestest friend = your sister Huffle!!! Maybe a cool nickname would help. What if I started calling you Hambone?

Oh Teddy, you made my Human get all ooky and leaky and now she's trying to hunt me down and HUG me or something. I'm blaming YOU!

Fin said...

Oh Teddy you are brilliant!!

This is my biggest fear though, some darling kitten shows up on Mom's doorstep... my days as only cat would be over!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

All woo had to do was bring her some shoes!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Teddy, Khyra is right. The way to Ms. Tracey's heart is through shoes. She's know throughout AU as "Imelda." She's a very nice lady and we're glad that you were rescued and have found a home. Be respectful and tolerant of your big sister; she's kinda set in her ways. It's a pleasure to meet and know ya'll. Tell your sis that Boru sends his love.

The Crew said...

Teddy, you're very lucky that Huffle's family found you. We know you'll have a great forever home!

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

Hi Teddy, we was sorta under the impression that your mom brought you in, and that she did it as soon as she saw you, We didn't realize you had to work so darn hard at it. Well, anyways, we know all about this place, and it's a nice place, so you made a good choice. Always let Huffle have the ham first, and stop bopping her on the head. That's our advice.
your pals, Morgan & Maisie

Catmama said...
