I was contacted by a local rescue about a woman who found a kitten on her lawn from a feral mom. She had been taking care of him, but as he was severe, she had to keep him in a small cage because of her dogs. I was asked if I could babysit while they went on a vacation, naturally I said yes. For the first time, he was given freedom to move around and have toys. When they came back they said they had more vacation time coming and asked if I could watch him again. I said if it was easier we could just keep him as we already knew what we were doing. Gus is now a very vocal member of the household.
