This is Gizmo. She’s my “model” for my hats for cats portion of this blog. My family raised her since she was two days old. She was born on April 17th, 2013 behind a shed next to my Nana’s house. We don’t know if her mother abandoned her and her two siblings who didn’t make it or if she passed away 😿 which I hope not but my Nana told my mom she heard kittens crying so, naturally we rescued the kittens.
We had her in a pet taxi with the heater on because she was too young to keep her body heat stable on her own. We fed her KMR every two hours and would be sure to stimulate her so she can go potty. She was too small to drink from a bottle at the time which is why we used a dropper to feed her. I can still remember seeing her ears twitch when she’d feed.
Now she’s big and spoiled. Everyone loves her. 😸 She’s a bratty cat, too but she’s part of the family. I remember when I was in the early months of my pregnancy, she’d lay on my belly like she knew there was someone growing inside of me. Pets aren’t just pets; they’re family. 😸
