Homeless Cats

Amara does some of the sweetest things and this weekend was no exception.

Shebee sitting on the ledge on the patio. Earlier this year Shebee started trying to move in with us. Shebee is a beautiful long haired black cat who wants more than anything to be part of our family. We name all the cats we see in the neighborhood. Shebee was originally Sheba but since we still aren’t sure if this cat is male or female we changed it to Shebee.

Momma Cleo and Baby Root BeerTwiggy and Twursula, the cats who share our house and Amaraland with Amara, have not been happy that this new cat is trying to adopt us. This happened a few years ago with another black cat named Cleo who tried to move in and have a kitten in Amara’s closet! We ended up getting Cleo fixed and finding a new home for both her and her kitten who Amara named Root Beer.Amara with the kitten she name Root Beer.

Now we have Shebee. Like Cleo Shebee sneaks in the doggy door and I have found her sleeping in Amara’s room, in the front room, she comes in and meows at me to get up and feed her in the morning, she plays on Twursula’s kitty kondo — did I mention Twursula is not amused by all this?

All weekend Amara kept trying to “bond” with Shebee but Amara moves at break neck speed most of the time and Shebee would go running. So yesterday morning Amara decided to give Shebee a card so that “Shebee will know who I am and won’t be afraid of me”. She was still in her p.j.s when she was making this card so she got out the clothes she was going to wear so that she could draw herself in that outfit and then Shebee would recognize her! How cute is that? The front of the card has 2 hearts because we don’t know if she is boy or girl! She tried so hard to give it to Shebee who spends most of her napping hours on the ledge outside my kitchen window during the day, but of course Shebee went running. So Amara finally decided to leave the card there for Shebee to find. I didn’t ask her how she thought Shebee was going to open the sealed envelope, I didn’t want to spoil her fun.This is the card Amara made for Shebee

    Oh my gosh, that’s the sweetest story! I hope Shebee decides to fall in love with Amara like the rest of us!

      If I could just get Twiggy and Twursula to fall in love with Shebee! They are not happy that this new cat is trying to move in.

    So cute. With all the cartoons and movie characters these day kids probably do think the animals can talk and understand us humans. But making a card for the cat….that was inspired πŸ™‚

    Well, of course, cats have the perfect letter openers right at their fingertips. πŸ™‚ I hope Shebee enjoyed her card. I’m curious if Shebee is still around. If so, it’s likely due to the card reminding her of the cutest little girl who enjoyed her visits.

    Just another story of Amara’s tender little heart! And I am so happy that there is a happy ending – Shebee is home to stay! (Thanks to Amara’s card!)
