The dog was barking nonstop. He stayed at the door, sniffing at the gap under it as he barked with gusto. When I opened the door, there was a kitten meowing at me and asking to be let in!
I bet she would have knocked if she could. In a manner of speaking, she already did.
My boyfriend and I gave her food and water. She continued to meow even as she chewed, making funny nom-nom-nom sounds as she hungrily gobbled up her food. She would probably strike a conversation as she ate if she could, just to keep us there with her.
Luckily, it was only a few months ago when we last fostered another kitten and the makeshift home I used was still set up. I brought out food and water bowls and a litter box. I used cardboard and a folded blanket to insulate her temporary home, just in case it got cold in the night and our young feline visitor needed a place to stay.
Come nighttime, she used the litter box, ate her food, and slept like the baby that she was.
I dubbed her Allura after the princess in the animated series Voltron because her potential purrent shared the name of one of the five Voltron paladins.
Meet Allura. I named her after the princess in the animated series Voltron.
