My better half had taken the animals to the vet with specific instructions as to which cat (of 3) went first. Unfortunately, Luna's cage handle broke, the carrier fell and the door popped open she took off into a huge kudzu field 200' behind the vet! For hours I would call her to no avail, but my better half would say "I hear her!" Just before the storm broke, I did "hear her" only it wasn't her...it was a kitten. I dug into the kudzu and the kitten cried and put his nose to my finger then ran back into the underbrush. Gone. The storm broke and as I'm coming out the kitten runs past me to the fence but can't get through the wire. With a tree beside him, me on one side and a friend on the other he ran towards my friend who caught him and threw him at me. I caught him with my finger by the teeth. He was a day away from starvation. I named him Lucas and he is now my lap cat. Luna, who came to me after the vet had closed (ha), torments him daily. Our lives are blessed with a lab(Maggie), Lucas, Calvin, Luna and Handsome.
