….Outback Kitty.

outback kitty 4-1-2014 7-44-34 PM

Behind our shop (in the same general area where we discovered Gypsy last summer), we’ve noticed this pretty little ginger kitty.

And….we have started feeding him/her.  But he/she is feral, and Monday was the first day he/she has stopped to look at me, rather than just running away.

Isn’t that just the sweetest little face? Right now we just refer to him/her as “Outback Kitty”, as in outback of the shop.

My friend, Donna, has promised to give me instructions on how to tame kitties. We’re certainly not looking for another pet, but we should do the responsible thing and have him/her immunized and neutered/spayed.

Stay tuned…

    We have several feral cats living under some nearby abandoned buildings, and they are well fed by several people. Some of these felines are quite beautiful, but I have never tried to approach them other than to see them sunning themselves as I drove by. Good luck with Ginger.

  2. This one is such a light color. Growing up. we had a feral/wild cat that adopted us. We named HIM Angelface…don’t quite know how that happened. He was a red tabby. My dad took him in to be neutered and immunized, but then we lost him back into the wild.

  3. Oh such a light color and sweet face….”Outback” is a good name – your shop is going to be known for being “the place” for finding someone who CARES! Sam was a feral kitten we adopted from the shelter….gaining their trust is step #1 and looks like you’ve made steps in that direction already!


  4. Beautiful color, reminds me of butterscotch.

  5. It’s so sad that so many of these lovely animals are lost and have no one to love them…good luck with your good deed for this beautiful cat.

  6. Truth be told, word on the kitty street is that your shop is a good place for a kitty to turn up 🙂

  7. He’s really sweet you two are being so kind:) But just a word of warning – you are in danger of turning into The Crazy Cat Lady 😉 Speaking from the voice of experience!!

  8. He or she has a beautiful sweet face! I knew you would be feeding her/him. Wouldn’t it be interesting if he/she was related to Gypsy?

  9. I think the shape of her head and face says it’s a lady cat. Maybe you have discovered Gypsy’s mama!

  10. Aw, poor little Outback Kitty, out on the streets and homeless. Sweet of you to take care of him. Sounds like he found the best kitty shelter on those mean streets.

  11. I think you should change her name to “ParadiseFound Kitty!” She’s a beauty for sure and knows just where to hang out. 🙂

  12. What a darling kitteh! Bless woo for looking after him:)


  13. a very sweet face. good luck!

  14. Could there possibly be room for two cats in the shop?!
    Let us know how how the process goes !

  15. What a beauty! Those eyes! Good luck!

  16. Oh poor lonely kitty, you picked a perfect name, Outback suits it to a tee. There’s a story in those sad eyes… one of the challenges of survival and longing for a kind word from a human. Bless it’s heart. I’m so thankful you & MM are going to help Outback survive better by getting it spayed/neutered and shots. You and MM have such good hearts, you are the best. 🙂

  17. It is a beautiful kitty. Thanks for taking care of it as best you can. I agree with MJ, the word is out, they’ll be beating a path to your door. Don’t be surprised if a horse shows up, too.

  18. The cat is beautiful. When I was a child living on the farm we often tamed kittens–adult cats were a little more difficult to get to trust us.

  19. Outback is a lovely kitty. I do hope you are able to become friends with him/her. I feel for all creatures who don’t have loving homes and have to fend for themselves. Thank you for being kind to these creatures.

  20. What a lovely cat! I think the word is out in the kitty and cat community that the Keens are the people to see! You and JR are a blessing for these
    sweet animals. ❤
