Mini the Calico Kitten Found in the Rain

This pictures was taken on the second day after she was rescued. Mini was still a bit shy, but very curious

Written by itsdesire, edited by Love Meow.

It was pouring rain in Shanghai the other night. I saw a little kitten wandering by herself. She must be separated from her family. In the moment of fear when she saw me, she shouted with all her might at me.

She reminded me of my old cat Mimi who was also a Calico. This little poor thing was skin and bones with rain dripping down her dirty coat. I couldn’t bear seeing her like that, so I picked her up and brought her home.

I named her Mini, not that I am good at picking names. This is how our story began.

    If she had a black mask, she'd look a lot like Jasmine, the cat I got from my son Robert. She was Harriet's "sister" cat and was 18 when she went over the Rainbow Bridge. Mini's so cute! May you have as much joy with her as we did with our Jasmine!

    What a great person you are to take a tiny kitty into your home and your heart…Cats are such good company and there are so many without homes…All 6 of mine were rescues of one sort or another they are all spayed so there are no more unwanted kittens being born….and one never knows when another might turn up…Mini is beautiful and would make a gorgeous calender girl. I love the bottle picture that would make a great ad…Thank you for saving her life, without you she would no doubt have starved to death. May you both have a long and happy life together. Thank you for sharing..

    Reminds me of my calico, who was also a rescue kitten. She was the best cat ever! A bit mean with strangers though.
    She sadly disappeared in 2010 and never came back. Still hoping for her return!
