Odyssey

Two cat guys go for a drive to look over a free sofa - seems innocent enough, right?
 

I was looking for a nice free sofa for Oliver's room. I found one on Craigslist that I wanted to check out. So, I asked my TNR buddy if he could help provide muscle and a truck. He happily obliged.

After checking out the groovy sofa, I decided to take it. It'll work well for my plan and it's in great shape!


On the drive back home, we see a group of kids walking along a very busy road with a small kitten following them. Seeing such a tiny kitten along such a busy road instantly freaked me out. We pulled right over and I asked the kids about the kitten, they said she had followed them from the elementary school across the street.


So, we took the kitten. She's so sweet and friendly, and off we went to the school to look for more. We didn't find anymore, so we don't know where this little girl came from. There is a trailer park adjacent to the school, maybe she wandered over from there.


I named her Odyssey, since she came from Odyssey Elementary School. She has an appointment for her spay Tuesday morning and then she'll be looking for a new home.


I feel like I've now graduated to a different level of cat rescue. I've rescued many dogs from the side of the road, but Odyssey's the first roadside cat/kitten. I always carry a empty carrier in my car just in case a moment like this arises, my friend didn't have such a carrier, but he may start carrying one now!

  9. that first line sounded like an intro to a good joke - instead an intro to a cute kitten. (btw - mom has a carrier in her car most of the time too) what a cutie!
