Meet MeToo; my kitten Charger’s semi-feral brother. MeToo was taken back by mama cat but she abandoned/left him around his 3rd month. The poor little fuzz was scrawny and starving as he had not yet learned to fend for himself. Unfortunately he had learned to fear humans from his mama so it was initially very difficult to even approach him to feed him. I would hear his distressed cries every night in the wooded are a behind our house. He has a very high pitched nasal cry and is extremely vocal compared to my ninja Charger.
It took over two months to get him to trust me through daily feedings but thankfully now he is quite comfortable with me and eats like its going out of style! He recognizes my call when it’s feeding time and he responds even a mile away with his high pitched cry and comes running.
This month there was further progress as he started playing with my niece and me. He’s still learning his boundaries with us though and as obvious from the picture he is more than double the size of Charger although they are litter mates so he is very strong.
He has become the official outside cat for us and stays on our kitchen step almost entire day or under the SUV parked outside our kitchen porch. He spends the nights on my Uncle’s porch next door. I am hoping to tame him enough soon to take him for his ‘Spa Day’ at the vets’. Suffice to say Charger and he do not get along as he seems to think Charger is competition whereas my innocent Chargeroo just wants to sniff and explore this strange creature that has claimed our kitchen stoop. All in good time I guess!
