Mr. Boots and Mamma
Hi, I’m Mr. Boots - a big muscle man (that's me on the right). But don’t let my size fool you. I’m really just a love bug once I get to know you.
I was born into a feral community or some might say I was a stray cat. I was, fortunately, neutered but left to defend for food and shelter on my own. Then one day I met a nice woman who fed me, gave me medication and took me to the vet. But most importantly, she taught me that I could trust humans. She introduced me to a Mamma cat and her babies that she had been feeding in the hopes that we would bond so I wouldn’t be alone anymore.
Once I felt accepted by Mamma and the babies, I started to protect them from wild animals and feral cats. I cleaned the babies and Mamma as if they were my own family. Finally, I belonged. And we became a pack. We traveled together and protected each other. It was such a nice feeling to finally belong for once in my life!
We would go to the wonderful woman’s house and she fed us wet and dry food and Temptations treats - YUM! She even gave us catnip which I really love and miss because I’m not allowed to have any at our new home at Cat Depot. I might get too wild!
Every night, our little “family” would spend the night at the woman’s house and then enjoy a wonderful breakfast. She didn’t like us crossing the busy road after breakfast. Mamma always wanted to cross the street to see if her previous owners had returned and would let her in. I went along with her thinking that maybe her dream would come true. But it never did.
I really don’t know which is worse - never having a family at all or having a family who didn’t care enough to take you with them when they moved.
But we all knew we had a new person who truly loved us. Unfortunately, she had other pets in the home and they didn’t have enough room for all of us. She starting searching for the perfect place for us to live. And she found Cat Depot!
Mamma’s babies were adopted and now it’s just Mamma and me. While we are comfortable here, we really want to find a forever home with owners who will play and love us as much as we will love them. We have so much love to give.
Please come and meet us. Please understand that we’ve had a tough life, so introduce yourself slowly and quietly so that we feel comfortable and safe. If you are right for us, we will love you unconditionally. And we will promise to make you smile and laugh every day. Mamma and I think you are the ones we have been waiting for. Come see us and say “Let’s Go Home!”
