Meme



















In may of last year a tiny kitten made its way into the engine compartment of my hubby's corvette. He heard the mews of this little kitten after he cranked up his car. He thought the worst and quickly cut off the car's engine. The mewing continued but he could not locate where it was coming from under the hood. Well, we finally figured out the little fellow wasn't hurt but very scared. And very wedged in a tight spot we were not going to be able to get him out of. It took awhile but with the help of a live animal trap, some milk, and some stinky goodness the little kitty was caught. Boy could she purr when she was all cleaned up and had a full belly. Within a month after being found my parents decided to add the little kitty to their menagerie. They would now have 4 kitties in their home. I ended up naming her. She didn't meow she said "me me" so that is what her name became - meme. She still doesn't meow, she kinda squeeks. But she has become a beautiful cat. She is long, lean and solid. She also has the longest tail. She steals anything paper out of my mom's purse and thinks if it's good enough to go into your mouth she should get a taste. That is how they found out she likes TOMATOS but dislikes shrimp. -Shirley (momsbusy)
