The Dumpster Kitty

See ya, Nana.  I'm going for a walk with Mommy now.

I have to hurry to catch up to her.  We go for walks every day. I really want to go?

Wait for me, Mom...I'm coming.

Here I am, Nana.  I'm home now.

Sharing with you and those at

Choo-Choo Tuna was found in a dumpster several years ago by my daughter and Angel.
He was eating garbage with the racoons who frequented the dumpsters.  Seeing him in the Spring, they began by trying to get close using food, yet the little dumpster kitty would only go near the food after they walked away!  

After five long months, it was beginning to get cold at night so they set out a kitty carrier with old blankets inside.  Oh, the little dumpster kitty used it yet would scurry off when they approached.  Next, they bought a Have-A-Heart trap and lured him in with tuna.

  No one knows why the little dumpster kitty was so terrified of human contact.  He continued to hide under their bed when company came for years.    Not any more...not this dumpster kitty!  Choo-Choo Tuna has had a real home for nearly four years now.

What a lovely story! I rescued (saved...) three kittens from our neighbor. She put out traps to get them and have them killed because she didn't want cats in her yard. Momma cat showed up pregnant, had 3 kittens. Fortunately, all 3 of the kittens were trapped, but one escaped and was taken to the pound....poor thing. I actually now have the other two in our dog kennel reinforced with grating on top. She come out to howl for food, but so far haven't let me touch them (4 months)...I'm hoping to tame them SOMEDAY. Oh, and I actually saw the mother cat just this week, so she was smart enough to avoid the cat capture cage! :-)
