A stray cat was living in the cold and afraid of people until she met a family that spent days to earn her trust so they could save her.
“I was going out and heard this poor kitty mewing. She’d run away from me but when I gave her food she ate up the whole big 6 oz can,” said Arafat Kazi.
“The cat was hiding out two houses away so my mom and I would bring the food closer to our house every day.”
Finally she was comfortable to eat inside the fence away from the road.
“This broke my heart–the cat was covered in snow (in the middle of a blizzard!) but would still run away from me. Better with my mom.”
“We built this and put this on the porch but she wouldn’t ever go in. It was going to snow on Thursday so we put it out. Her food was in there but she would only go into the shelter to eat.”
After many days of earning her trust, they were able to bring the kitty into their home! “Today, my mom brought kitty into the house. Here she is in her first half hour.”

A hug from her new family.
“Kitty is super cuddly! It’s Day 1 indoors but she’s very friendly and a purr machine.”
“If she’s microchipped, I’ll look for her previous owner, because I can’t imagine losing one of my babies. But to be 100% honest, my wish is that she isn’t, and I get to keep her.”
