New Rescue

Well, she’s angry, she’s scared, and she’s got attitude. Here’s Nicole, who just came home from the vet.

I had to crawl around to get these.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    We think she’s about three months old. She’s certainly been on her own for most fo that, and needs a lot of love and patience.

    She’s also angry and all claws and teeth now that the drugs have worn off…

    She’s cutsie – hopefully you can also make her cuddly.

    My Isis was about 3 months old when I snagged her from the street. It took about 2 weeks for her to be all cuddly, and now she’s 9 and sleeps by my feet every night.

    With feral cats, if you get them when they’re still young, they can be socialized pretty easily. Right now, Nicole is probably flipping out because she was at the vet and now she’s in an unfamiliar place that smells of unfamiliar cats…

    Yeah. Terry’s reccomendation was “Cage her, feed her, talk to her.”

    So…she’s in my computer room hiding. She has food and water and a litter box. I go in every so often with pounce treats and talk to her.

    At some point I hope she stops being so defensive when she sees me. I might lock myself in with her for a while tonight so she can get more used to me, and people in general.

    I think she’ll do OK at Mom & Dad’s eventually.
