A bunch of kittens showed up in our neighborhood recently. The kids said someone saw a van pull into our court and drop them out the door. I tried to round them up for a neighbor's daughter who rescues kittens but they took off and I never saw them again. A week or so later my husband went to mow the lawn and when he rolled out the mower, a kitten ran out from underneath it. She was really thin and totally dehydrated. We fed her and loved on her and kept saying she could stay *until* the rescue home had room for her... Then finally one day last week we named her and bought her toys. Lol.
I'll have to get a pic up. She is black with chocolate brown stripes but not really tabby. The stripes go long ways down her back... Anyhoo, she's perfectly cuddly and sweet and since I'm the only female in a house of 5, I'm rather excited to have a "little girl". :) Because she survived the heat hunkered down under that mower, (and didn't get stuck in there when he fired it up), and because she's black, we named her "Lucky".
