Formerly Feral Pete


It's been about seven weeks since I went for that fateful walk and discovered Stinky Pete trapped in a tool shed in the alley behind my store.
This is one of the very first pictures I ever took of the little dude, and will forever be one of my favorites.
When he first came along, he really was stinky.  Not only did he need a serious sponge bath, but he had some toxic gas that would make a trucker gag.  He still lets a noxious one rip every now and again, but he's gone from being "Stinky Pete" to "Pete Underfeet," and most often just "Petey."
He's affectionate, loves Little Isis, and has a purr like a motorboat.  And that face.  Oh, that face!
How could he not become a permanent member of the Purrchance To Dream gang?  I need to get him a bio page, and have Janna work on a sidebar collage for him!

I hope that today, another little feral kitten finds a loving Forever Home, and that they bring as much joy to their family as Stinky Pete has brought into my life!

  3. He looks like he's talking at you while you took that picture and I can only imagine what he was saying at the time!

    I bet he's beyond glad to have a forever home with NTM and Little Isis and the rest of the gang - he's one very lucky little guy!

  22. That is one cute little kitten! My husband and I just adopted a little "throw-away." Toby was only 6 weeks old when his "owner" put him out with the trash. We heard his cries for help and instantly fell in love. I'm happy to say that after a month and a half, little Toby is a happy, healthy, thriving member of the family! And he's up a couple of pounds since his first visit to the vet.
