Kitty Star of the Week for May 1 - 7, 2005

Our submitter writes,

"Raccoon? Maine Coon? No -- it's Cee Cee!!! Three years ago, Cee Cee came out from behind a bush and walked up to me one rainy cold day in a commercially zoned area near a busy highway, in Delaware.

"I don't live in Delaware, and I was not able to rescue her - although I do carry a cat/dog rescue kit with me. I felt so bad! I left her some food and then had to leave the area. I called the shelters, but it was a holiday and they were closed, which actually turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

"I went back home on the train that day with a heavy heart. When I got home I sent some emails and was put in touch with a lady who rescues ferals in that area in Delaware. She found Cee Cee AND SEVENTEEN other feral kitties there -- some of whom were Cee Cee's offspring.

"A bank that owned that property PAID to have all the cats spayed and neutered and vetted!! A miracle!! Some of the kitties were wild, and were put back into the feral colony with a caretaker looking after them. I returned to Delaware and took Cee Cee home with me. She was so skinny I could see her backbone through her long long fur.

"Although she would let me pet her and LOVED to be brushed, she was VERY frightened, but after a few months she started to settle down. It took Cee Cee one year to realize it was ok to play -- she plays with her tail alot. She loves the laser pointer and catnip. She IS afraid of some of the other cat toys.

"She is still terrified of strangers and takes off in a frantic furry fluff when guests come to visit.

"She ADORES her feline-sister Princess kitty -- Princess could care less, much to Cee Cee's distress. Big Bad Baby Twinkle can get very aggressive towards Cee Cee, so I keep them apart, and everyone is happy.

"When I pick up Cee Cee she nestles her little round frowzy head under my chin - she purrs and trills her voice. She will allow me to rub her big fat kitty-belly, and all is well.

"I am so glad she took that walk in the rain 3 years ago!!"

More pictures of Cee Cee, Princess and BBBT can be seen at their website.
