Every now and then we have a special story to share with you from our headquarters in California. We hope you enjoy this one...
About a month and a half ago a stray cat started to grace us with her presence at Prima headquarters. She was extremely skittish at first and didn't trust any of us. You could tell she was young.not even a full grown adult yet. The first day we all gave her bits and pieces of food we could find in the office, figuring that the next day she would be gone.
On day two
she was still hanging out in the same spot right outside of our building, so
Denny bought some kitty food for her (Isn't he sweet?) She still didn't trust any of us
enough to let us pet her, or get close, but we could tell she wanted to. Well,
a week later we started to notice that her belly seemed a little large for
her small frame...quickly realizing that this little teenager cat was actually
So we kept feeding her and eventually she became bold enough to even walk inside our building and hang out in some of the offices. After about 3 weeks of having her around she warmed up to us, trusting enough to get close and allow us to pet her. Sandi and Tanya came sometimes on the weekends to make sure she had food (Aren't they thoughtful?) We kept her outside when we closed the building but she would come in when we were were.
This little kitty has
started to really tug at our hearts. Two weeks ago (in the morning) we
noticed that Jenny (that's what we named her) no longer had a big belly, and
that she must have had her kittens that night, but they weren't anywhere to
be seen. We fed her normal breakfast and then followed her to where her
kittens were...in a box by the dumpster.
Later that day Sandi and I got the kittens and the mommy inside the office where we made a nice comfy bed for them...in Pom's meeting office of all places. lol. Being that Jenny was so protective of her new litter she didn't like them to be out in the open in the bed we set out for her, so she quickly put them all underneath one of the desks (in an area that wasn't reachable to us.)
A week passed before Jenny realized that we would not harm her kitties, and she now lays and feeds them in the bed at Pom's office.
Happily, she even feels comfortable enough to let us pet and hold them. In a few weeks the kittens will be old enough to take home, and all 5 kittens will be going home with various Prima employees. Jenny, however, will be staying with us at Prima. (She even has her own litter box here!) ~Story by Adrienne
