Speaking of Minnie Mouse, I thought I saw one of her cousins this morning!
But I was wrong, it turned out to be a little baby kitten.
The fur baby I met this morning!
I woke up at 7:30am because I'm still very much on East Coast time.  Minh and I went to Pittsburgh, PA over the weekend, but I'll tell you more about that later. :)

I spent the morning in the garage flattening out cardboard boxes for the recycle bin.  I opened the garage for some air, and I see this giant black and white cat walking around the neighborhood. I was thinking to myself, that cat walks so funny.  I didn't think much of it, and I went inside and told Minh about the cat (because I share every little detail about animals sightings with him). lol 

I leave the house around 9:20am for my walk, and about 10 minutes in, I see this little fuzzy ball on the sidewalk in front of me.  I was thinking...oh no, not a dead mouse.  I look closer and it's a tiny baby kitten.  He was hamster size! He was just in the middle of the sidewalk by himself.  I felt so bad because he kept crying for mom.  He couldn't walk yet so he was just wiggling and slowly crawling around on the cement.  I could see the umbilical cord still attached to his body.  His eyes were still shut so I knew he might not even be 1 week old.  I didn't want to touch him because I was always told never to touch baby animals because their mom might not take them in if he/she has human scent.

I call Minh, my Mom, and I text my sister, and Van!  I didn't know what to do!  The little thing was so helpless. I didn't want the ravens to visit the kitten either.  I super hate crows/ravens, we have way too many of them in Washington State.  They seriously team up and dig through your trash and spread it everywhere!  They're horrible birds.  Minh and Mom both told me that the Mom was probably moving the kittens around, and she can only carry one at a time.  The middle of the sidewalk is not a very responsible place to leave your helpless baby momma cat! 
  I stand afar (like a weirdo) in the neighborhood and watch the kitten. I see someone walking by and asked him if he knew anyone around who had a cat, and he just shook his head and walked away. I've always notice a lot of cats in our neighborhood (walking around, or through neighbor's windows).  I continued with my walk because I wanted to give the mom cat space to come retrieve her baby, but every time I would walk by, the little kitten was still there.  I call the Seattle Humane Society hoping to get some help, but all I could do was leave a message.  They normally don't open until noon.  I know they would take in abandoned, orphaned animals.  But I knew the mom cat was around since I saw her this morning. I just hoped she would just come back and get her baby already!  I was so mad at her. lol
 She finally came and got her baby 30-45 minutes later.  I was so relieved!   
Maybe I'll meet the mom cat and her kittens again if she's nesting in our neighborhood.  I'll constantly on 'hood watch when I go on my morning walks. lol

Minh on AIM:

cat stalker
she probably took her kittens far away from you
so you don't cat-nap her kids

He's such a hater.


  1. I'm so glad the mother cat came back!! poor baby kitty

  2. Awwww that's very sweet of you. I'd probably "stalk" the kitten too.. I always feel bad whenever I see stray animals, esp. when they're roaming busy streets. I want to follow them to rescue them from getting hit by cars because it's always so sad to see a careless ahole hit a poor animal. Have you seen Street Dogs of South Central? OMG, sooooo sad. I was on the edge of my seat while watching that, and even my BF got teary-eyed and asked me why I like watching sad stuff like that. LOL! I can't help it - I love dogs, and I want everyone to know it's better to adopt than buy because there are so many great dogs out there in shelters across the US!

    I'm happy to hear baby kitten is safe & with momma cat. I hate crows/ravens too because they dig up the cedar mulch in my community & it's just a big mess. But plus side, they attack the hawks, which I'm even more worried about because those hawks will swoop up small animals, and I'm always worried about my baby chi getting swooped up by one!

  3. The pink is such a nice shade! I have to pick this up when it becomes available :)

    Glad the kitten is okay! Mom definitely was not thinking when she left her kitten in the middle of the sidewalk..

  4. I love the shade of pink! It's absolutely lovely. I'll definitely have to go pick that one up!

    And OMG!! Poor kitty! I would be a kitty stalker, too! Omg :( That was kind of you to watch from a far. I wouldn't want anything terrible to happen plus who knows, kids on their skate boards could of ran over it. Aaah! BUT I'm glad the kitty is safe with its momma cat. Wonder how they are doing.

  5. What a lovely polish, and wonderful nail mail!! I totally hear you about those sad days... and my room needs to be cleaned too. >.<
