Two summers ago, a stray cat started to hang around house. She seemed a little skittish, but eventually we started to feed her and named her Sally and she stuck around. One day, last May, we see Sally carrying what we assume is a bird in her mouth until she gets a little nearer to us and we realize, it is a tiny little kitten. She made one more trip from underneath our porch to our carriage house to bring both of her little kittens in.
We started handling the kittens as soon as we could to get them acclimated to humans, so that they would be easier to be adopted. I already had two indoor cats, so I was not looking for another one! We named the kittens Elmo and Gizmo, and when it came time to take them to the shelter, my husband just couldn't take both! However, my one condition was that both momma, Sally, and the little kitten needed to get fixed, since we were going to have them be garage cats.
Well, Gizmo stayed with us and as you can see, didn't really turn into a garage cat! He pals around with our Mugsy cat and annoys our Sherry cat. Momma Sally stills hangs in the garage and little Elmo got adopted out.
