Guest Cat #3 - Livy

Our wonderful friends, Donna & Dwight, have another little cat, Livy.  She is a very pretty brown/grey tabby.  

This is her story.  Donna writes:
Livy and her brother, Oliver, were born in a snowstorm on May 1, 2010 in a stack of straw bales in our backyard. Their momma, Abby, was a pretty little brown tabby stray that had been hanging around our place for several months -- when we noticed that she was pregnant we took pity on her and starting leaving food out for her.

The little family spent the entire summer in our backyard, sleeping in a "renovated" dog house and playing in the gardens and hunting in the tall grass along the railway track. We already had three cats and weren't keen on adopting more, so in October, before the weather turned cold, we surrendered Abby and Livy to a wonderful organization called Whisker Rescue* in Red Deer, Alberta. Oliver was adopted by Samantha (Dwight's daughter, who is attending college in Ponoka, AB), as a companion for her kitten, Molly (another rescue cat).

Livy, as a kitten
Abby was adopted almost immediately. Livy, however, did not find a home and spent the winter and spring at the "kitty orphanage" getting tamed up by the volunteers. When we lost two of our precious kitties (Simon to Feline Leukemia Virus and Isobel to diabetes) last spring we decided to bring Livy home again. Shortly after, we added Ben to our family.

Livy Now!
Livy is an absolute delight. She is curious about everything, and plays constantly, inventing games that only she understands. Although she doesn't allow us to pick her up, she enjoys pets and ear rubs, and loves to snuggle next to us on the couch and sleep by my side in bed.
We here at Freddie, All The Time absolutely adore Livy. We would like to play with her.

Livy lives with the two previous Guest Cats, Big Ben and Cleo.

*Whisker Rescue just completed their 1000th adoption!! Freddie blog will do a feature blog on Whisker Rescue soon. But, go visit their website now
