Smokey




A
A couple of weeks ago a pregnant cat fell through the bathroom ceiling of my local bar; greatly surprising Uriah the bartender who just happened to be using the facilities at the time of said fall.

Anyway the cat ran under the beer cooler and refused to come out. She gave birth to 1 kitten and pushed it out away from her; then retired back to under the cooler, of course where no one could reach her.

Another Bartender, Brenda, picked up the little kitten and bottle fed him every 15 minutes for 4 days, saving its life. Brenda is a special person who has a way with animals. I was telling UNO that Brenda once saved little sparrows and would place them in her bra to keep them warm. He inquired about the bird poop; a question that I had never really thought about, but one that made me laugh.

Any how the sort of fuzzy pictures are of Smokey the miracle kitten. Brenda is teaching him how to walk with a leash…

She says that she can not keep Smokey as she already has a house full of animals including her boyfriend Cal. So hopefully I will be adopting Smokey when she is fully weaned from Brenda’s bottle.

I don’t know how I feel about the name Smokey as I’m trying to quit; I am partial to the name pit or little twit.

Just kidding, anyway the pictures were taken by my friend Stephanie so I will try to get some better ones during Mardi Gras.
Oh the mother cat finally ran out from the cooler, startling another bartender - guess she did not want to leave anyone out and made her escape through the door.
