One Year Ago Today We Took in a Cat…and Kittens

One year ago today, we took in an indoor neighbourhood cat that had been left outside to fend for herself at 5 months old when the homeowners simply moved away. The day we took her in, our next door neighbour found her in their yard where she had just had a litter of three kittens.


Tess and her kittens on September 12, 2012. Their first day with us.

Now, she goes by the name of Tess and is a wonderful addition to our family, as are her two kittens (one was given to a loving family).

We have all moved past our cat’s rough beginnings, but if you would like, you can read my original post.

Today we are celebrating one year together, and the one-year birthday of Tess’s two kittens that we still have.

I also get to share that, over the next few months, I will be working with Petcurean as a brand ambassador and I am really excited for a few reasons.

  1. We are very picky in what we feed our cats and after reading, and Googling Petcurean, I am happy to say that I can’t wait to try out their food with Tess.
  2. Through my ambassadorship, I get to learn more about Tess. What foods are right for her, her development, and I have access to a Petcurean nutritionist as a resource for a future post (which I plan on taking full advantage of).
  3. I’ll get the chance to share some giveaways with you as well.

Tess, one year later and she loves our family. She is often found laying in the yard near our girls as they play.

One of the things I found daunting when we first took Tess in was feeding her the right food. My other cat lived until the amazing age of 20 years old, so it had been awhile since I looked at pet food for kittens. If you head over to the Petcurean site, you will find a Petcurean food selector that matches your cat up with its ideal food.

    Good for you for taking her in. I can’t believe people treat animals this way and think they are disposable.

    We had a similar situation – a pregnant cat showed up on our door. We still have the mama and 4 of her babies, ha ha ha!!

      Four makes for an interesting life. We still talk about possibly giving the kittens to a good home, but are not actively looking. We will always keep Tess though. She’s been through enough. Good for you too for taking those kitties in.

    Tess is one very lucky cat that that you lived next door to her when she needed a loving family to take her in. We see she and her kittens have settled in very nicely, lucky lucky Tess!

      Yup, they walk around like they own the joint. ;)
