And the winner is . . .

Aprillee had the most views on Flickr so that makes her 1st cat! First cat of mine to have their very own blog entry here on The Kitty Cats Corner. Here's her story.
My husband found a little calico cat that was sweet as can be at a dumpster near his work. Not like we needed another addition to the family, but we couldnt just leave her there. Well the vet confirmed that the little calico cat which we fondly named Sydney, was pregnant! After a couple months of good food, care & love, on September 17, 2005, Sydney started to give birth around 10 am.
Soooo here I go calling my mom, who was in Alaska at the time, to tell her the kittens were being born! Of course she was as excited as I was and said if the first one was a girl, that it had to be named her favorite name April and her maiden name Lee. I agreed, and the two of us on the phone together, anxiously awaited the first born to arrive. No less than a few minutes later, a tiny kitten appeared. It was a girl! A sweet little dilute calico. April!
Over the next hour, Sydney gave birth to 5 more beautiful kittens. A total of 6 kittens altogether! Each one unique in markings. Each one so tiny, perfect & precious.
As the months passed by I knew the time was drawing near to find them good homes. After 6 months had passed, it was time and as hard as it was to let them go, I know they have wonderful homes. That I made sure of!
But two stole my heart that I couldnt let them go. Mittens, and I bet you can guess the other. Aprillee of course!

Great story! I like the slide show too.

I'd like to invite you Cats to participate in some of our Cat Days. So far we have Meezer Monday, Midnight Monday (for us Black Cats) T-Cubed (for Torti Tuesday, Tabby Tuesday, and Tuxie Tuesday), and Frootbat Friday. But that's just the beginning. Hopefully we'll have a White Wednesday and whatever else anykitty comes up with!
