Bebe is about 4 years old now. She was a feral cat who was rescued after she had her first litter. We took her in about 4 years ago and a few months of love and attention turned her from a terrified but wild cat into a loving and affectionate one. She is devoted to our Alpha cat Robyn.

What a gorgeous cat! There's a lot of 'feral wisdom' in those eyes!

If you want a catmullets, it might be worth looking at other animal shelters. RSPCA/SSPCA can be a bit over strict in their homing policies.

We got her from an animal rescue charity. She had been "fostered" while she nursed her kittes, the kittens were homed easily but nobody wanted her. With a fair bit of love and attentin she turned into a sweet little thing.

Thanks Andante. We lov her to bits. for a former wild "teen" mum she is so elegant and ladylike!

AWWWWWW, Bebe's so cute. Lovely eyes too.

Hey jams, when are you going to add a "Kitler" to your cat brood?

Bryan said...

You got her at a good age, Jams, still young enough to fit in and a matriarch to teach her how.

I wish I had that kind of luck, because worming and flea treatment doubles the life span of ferals.

She is a beautiful cat and lucky to have found people willing to put up with her as she adapted to "civilization".

If a kiltler comes our way, we will take him in.. Unfortynately cats hont like it whey you try and dye their hair so a made up kitler is out of the question!

Thanks Bryan, a bit older and she may not have made the jump. Luckily Robyn is a gentle giant who didn't mind when she fawned all over him. Having him I think really did help the transition - she is still utterly devoted to him, always trying to curl up with him. Robyn will be my next Animal Ark/Carnival of the Cats subject
