Our room had a balcony that overlooked a small piece of nature, and as I looked down, I saw something small and furry in the grass. It was averaged sized for its species and had the furriest little tail ever. I walked around, calmly looking for something to eat, preferably a rodent. I got the rest of my family to see a cat we named it Biscotty the
On July 6th of 2013, my mother and I got a call to go pick up two newborn baby kittens, one an orange tabby and the other a calico, they were found in a bush near the mountains. The family who found them said they would bring them in for the night since the rough terrain held mountain lions and coyotes; they could have their lives claimed at any moment before they could even try to live.

Kitten Angels I remember when two of my kittens died in my hands, one recently and one when I was almost nine. I remember their names, Midnight is the one that died recently, Pudge is the one that died when I was almost nine. They were born sickly when they were born. I miss them so much, but I know they are angels now. They fly with everyone I lost whom are in heaven.
An Essay by Josie Sopha on My Career to be When I was young, and living in Duluth, Minnesota, I loved animals and still do. My three sisters and I would take in any creature we found and help it survive or keep it warm. Our family We were only children and didn’t know any better, but Addie found a dead mouse in our yard and brought it into the house. She kept him and named him Freddy. When my mom asked her what she was going to do with him she replied, “We can take him out and look at him.” We had him for about a week until our mom got rid of him because of the smell. We were devastated but eventually found ourselves new pets to care for. One of which, was a chipmunk.
“That made me so happy.” Eda Cofield, a Venus resident, and her teenaged daughter, Aliyah, came into the shelter around 11 a.m. to find another cat after their previous cat, Saber, disappeared.
“Is this what you’re wanting, Kitten?” I asked her. I watched as her cheeks went slightly red for a moment at my questioning. Perhaps it was my wording of it. Still, she nodded her head after looking over the phone thoughtfully.
I mostly slept for the three weeks. Stew cat was always with me. I kept thinking about TImothy and how amazing he was. I was walking to the beach when I heard Stew cat yelp. I searched for what felt like four hours. I finally found a cave. I tried to reach down to the bottom when I felt Stew cats paws on mine. Then, I felt three more sets of paws. I was confused, at first I thought there were more cats on the island, but then I realized that Stew cat had three baby kittens. I set my whole day to preparing a house for them and getting a lot of food.
The Second Kitten I slowly opened my eyes. I was almost blinded by the sunlight that came through the window of my bedroom and travelled right into my exposed retina. I closed my eyes again. It was Saturday, so I could sleep in for as long as I wanted. I dozed off into a light sleep.

THE KITTENS Under normal circumstances, he would speak his mind, but, with a gun against his head, he couldn’t think or say a word. He was tall and stout. Wore a size 17 shoe, and has dark red eyes. Bob was the most scariest cop in the whole Police Department.
If you really want to know about my traumatic childhood, it all started in a small town outside of Philadelphia. I was around 9-10 years old at the time and we lived about right in the middle of a forest. There was no clear patch of open field to be found. You would think there were many animals around too, for living in the middle of nowhere, but the coolest thing you 'd find was a lost deer now and then. Anyway, the incident took place on a cool night in the middle of July. I was in my crappy two-story house in bed. I remembered the wind to be wild that night and of course the walls of the house were as thin as paper, so it sounded like a tornado was forming outside. I was having trouble falling asleep, so I went to get a glass of milk.
Playing With The Puppies 8 weeks ago I got two puppies. One is black, white and brown and the other is brown and white. The white and brown one is named Squirt and the other is Fancy. My mom had the idea of getting them a kitty pool this week to play in, because it has been so hot. The next day after we got the pool I decided to get my bathing suit on and play with them. I got my bathing suit on and went back there to play with them but instead of playing in the water they were more interested in chasing bugs. So I went inside and then about two hours later I went back out and I couldn’t find the pups so i went around back to see if they were in the pool and the pups were playing in the water. Squirt was jumping around patting at the water with her feet. Fancy was both playing and drinking the water.I went to play with them and when I got in they started chasing bugs. So finally I just gave up and it was kinda a funny moment cause the way they were chasing bugs cracked me up. After that I did a little research on why dogs chase bugs and I couldn’t find anything on that but then I found something about the four dangers of letting your puppies eat bugs.
