Introducing….. GIZMO

(I wrote this post over a month ago and forgot to publish it)


 

This beautiful little girl was rescued during Thanksgiving at my sister Bev's house.  They live in the country and usually end up with a number of cats which ‘well-meaning’ people decide to drop off!  So at any time there may be newborn kittens in their shed.  All are well fed and have shelter but we had such cold weather so you never know how many will actually survive.

 

My great nephew Jarret scooped her up and brought her inside the heated garage to begin begging asking if he couldn’t bring her home.  Since his Mom has allergies it didn’t look too promising that was going to happen.  My niece Katie, who has a heart of gold when it comes to pets, took her home with her.

Gizmo had very little ‘meat’ on her and things got to be touch and go for awhile.  Taking her to the Vet, feeding her, keeping her warm finally paid off and she turned the corner.  By then, Katie had taken Gizmo to her Mom’s house.  (Who is another softie, but won’t admit it)  My sister, Laurie, had just fostered two Siamese kittens and had just earlier been adopted.


And…that is where Gizmo is today!! And, where she will be staying!  She has an older sister, Nahla,  (Siamese) who ignores her.  And older ‘brother’, Charlie, a German Shepherd who takes great joy in ‘rounding’ her up.  It is so sweet watching Charlie take care of Gizmo.

 

She’s spoiled..gets to stay up late to watch scary movies…


 

Surfs the internet when no one is around….


And never has to worry about being hungry or cold again…


BUT, perhaps best of all is she will be able to visit now and again with her real life HERO..Jarret!

Jarret 

By bringing Gizmo into the garage that Thanksgiving night, Jarret literally saved her life!  If she would have been left on the farm, none of us think she would have survived this harsh winter.


THANKS FOR STOPPING BY……

I love that story :) Jarret is a sweetheart and so is everyone else, Gizmo is one lucky kitty, adorable, I bet she could even melt Kathleen's heart towards pets. Well, maybe not, but she is adorable. The cat, not Kathleen, haha! Kathleen is cute though. LOL!

Jarret is not only tender hearted, he's adorable. Sounds like the entire family is a bunch of softies. Gizmo is sooo cute, and what a lucky cat to have found your family's barn! laurie
