We have a guest tummy today for Tummy Tuesday.
This is Sharea Maria, D-'s newest foster kitten. D- brought her home from a weekend trip to assist with volunteer efforts at an under-resourced animal rescue organization Up North. Seems she was a tiny girl in a tiny cage all by herself, after her mother and the rest of her siblings succumbed to an unknown illness. Well, if you know D-, then you already know the end of that story.
Sharae Maria was packed into the car, along with an injured bald eagle headed to the metro Raptor Center. Sharea had evidently had enough of cages, because she complained vociferously about being in one, in a moving vehicle yet. Fortunately, there was another driver, so Sharea got car privileges under D-'s (and the eagle's) watchful eye. As D- says, "the kitten was unconcerned," and obviously enjoyed the rest of the ride home.
Sharea Maria, named after two little girls that D- met on the trip, has also proved fearless in the face of D-'s resident 14-18 lb tuxedo cats, and has joined the Sausage Kittens in waiting to grow up a little more and find a good home. The only thing she doesn't like is being left alone.
It's Tummy Tuesday. To see more of the (feline) sunny-side-up variety, visit LisaViolet.
