Kitty Update... by Weezilou

Kitty Update...

I love and appreciate that so many of you asked to know what happened next!

I open the back door, and she comes in quite comfortably...even put her nose on my fingers when I reached out! She's still eating a lot and was here at breakfast time. She was inside for such a length of time, Ken and I went back to our computers and left her and Tigger to sit and watch one another, fully in the family room!

However, we started hearing her "talking" (sounded like, "Howw...Loww...") and I said to Ken, she's probably just testing the water to assure herself he was going to leave her alone! But...that talking turned into a full-fledged "bundle of whirling fur and claws and screaming"!

Ken can jump up faster than I can, and out the door both of them ran! He returned, carrying Tigger, and we're not altogether sure WHAT happened except a play for dominance (hers, not his)!

But here's "the good part" that's a clue in the mystery! Her collar came off! That said, what I hoped was a disc with a name and/or phone # was only a charm shaped like a moon...no information...

Ken and a neighbor have checked the local internet Lost and Found, and tomorrow I will ask at the closest vet if someone has left notice of her absence. If and when she's more comfortable with me, I can try to get her to a vet for a chip check.

My neighbor asked if I had named her, but it seems a bit premature... Then I laughed and said, "How does 'Carlisle' sound?" She's my age and didn't pick up on it. It's pretty esoteric and most might not get it, but if you think, "Kitty" and remember "What's My Line", it might make you laugh, too!
Isn’t she darling? I love your story too. Carlisle is just the perfect name. 😊

Well that was unexpected! That's really is biting the hand that feeds you,
April 26th, 2024  
Only you could come up with a name like that!
April 26th, 2024  
I’ll take her 🙄🤣

Love the story! Especially the last bit,/hint about Carlisle. I remember Kitty! Very inventive name of you end up being Kitty's new owner. Lol
April 26th, 2024  
She looks small in this pic. Is she smaller than Tigger? Clever name you have picked out. Our last black kitty's name was Kizzy.
April 26th, 2024  
So pretty! Love the name idea
April 26th, 2024  
Such a fabulous story, hope it has a happy end.
April 26th, 2024  
You are a great observer and storyteller. Since there was an exchange of views, it means that Carlisle is already settling in.
April 26th, 2024  
Ha ha, I get that - very funny!
April 26th, 2024  
Aw, kitties and their ways of communicating and dominance.
April 26th, 2024  
I needed the extra clues but than I remembered. Clever

She looks so sweet and petite. My husband was on What's My Line when he was 17! He had won a Diamond Jewelry Design competition and was invited on the show. They did not guess that he was a goldsmith/jewelry maker.
April 26th, 2024  
A lovely portrait. She seems small but combative! I hope you’ll find her owner.
April 26th, 2024  
Took me a while being a Brit for the name to make sense. Continued update required.
April 26th, 2024  
Oh she looks so sweet! Looks can deceive though! Very feisty- poor Tigger! I love your narrative which as usual made me smile!
April 26th, 2024  
@gardenfolk What a FASCINATING bit of information!!! Everyone has some sort of amazing story to tell, but they're the sort of things you don't just blurt out in daily conversation!!! That's a good one!!! I'm so glad you shared!!!
April 26th, 2024  
@louannwarren @christinav @danette @brigette @bjywamer @lynnz @edorreandresen @ludwigsdiana @haskar @casablanca @mozette @joansmor @corinnec @wakelys @pamknowler Thanks for lending your thoughts as the saga continues! I'd love it if she returns with a new collar! That might mean someone/an owner was paying attention and it would bring a close to the story! Stay tuned! I'm as interested in seeing how this unfolds as well!!!
April 26th, 2024  
@lynnz @corinnec "She" is small which Is why I'm only guessing that she's a female. If this is "a young Tom", the owners should have kept it closer to home. "She", to me, just has"the delicate look of a female" but time will tell!!! (I'm also guessing "female" because Tigger seems to be more fascinated with her than aggressively wanting to run her off! (After yesterday's kerfuffle, I wonder if he's changed his mind!)
April 26th, 2024  
Ha, ha....Kitty Carlisle...Great name...Great story and I am glad she is still around.
April 26th, 2024  
@seattlite I've come to know you well enough, I *knew* you'd get it and laugh! Thanks!
April 26th, 2024  
I now need to search back and find the beginning of this story, but I'm intrigued!
April 26th, 2024  
Your Kitty Carlisle is lovely! She looks petite and kitten-ish. I'm glad she is sticking around the peaceable kingdom!

I've seen episodes of game shows where Kitty Carlisle was a panelist- she always strikes me as intelligent and elegant.
April 26th, 2024  
I remember that show well on Sunday evenings.
April 26th, 2024  
@kchuk I became further curious and looked up her bio; she was a very busy and accomplished woman! Quote, "Carlisle was known for her gracious manner and personal elegance, and she became prominent in New York City social circles as she crusaded for financial support of the arts." "Little Namesake Kitty" is going to have to work on ger (less-than) gracious manner!!!"
April 26th, 2024  
Wonderful story
April 26th, 2024  
I hope you get to keep her:)
April 26th, 2024  
Great story and wishing for a happy ending!
April 27th, 2024  
What a beautiful little cat and she does look like she's healthy. I hope you can get her to trust you and then you can all live together happily ever after!! :)
April 27th, 2024  
Such a sweetie!
April 27th, 2024  
A sweet capture and great narrative...yes, I remember Kitty Carlisle (I wouldn't have been able to correctly spell her last name though) Looking forward to the next Kitty chapter.
April 27th, 2024  
A lovely story, hope it ends happily, she is a cutie
April 27th, 2024  
She's a cutie!
April 27th, 2024  
I vote for Carlisle! I always liked her.
April 28th, 2024  
I hope she gets to stay at your house. She is so adorable and all you can see are those beautiful eyes. But if she's wearing a collar I'm quite sure she has a home somewhere in the neighborhood.
April 28th, 2024  
How lucky she was to be rescued by you!
April 29th, 2024  
Beautiful black cat
April 29th, 2024  
Such a sweet story. My niece has a cat who wandered in and made himself at home. She tried to find out who owned the cat with no success. Her 6 year old twins love the cat and named him Theo and he has settled in nicely with his new family. Similarly, it seems Carlise has adopted you as her new family. And I remember Kitty Carlisle very well but the show she was on was To Tell The Truth. I watched it a lot back in the day.

Hope all is good with the kitty - and you! Hopefully off doing something fun :-)

@blightygal You're so sweet to ask! ALL is well! Taking a break to scan some old (1920s) negatives and create some art-for-fun. It was wrong of me to drop the story in the middle of a chapter! We now KNOW she has an owner, but she still comes calling; she's adorable! Best of situations all in all! Nothing has changed except that I had some art distractions! You're the Best to've asked! Hugs!
May 15th, 2024  
@Weezilou Ah wonderful, on all accounts! Be well :-)
May 15th, 2024  
@Weezilou I’m glad to know she’s just an occasional visitor, as Tigger has place of prominence in your home! All is well here, so much rain the last few weeks we have started inquiring about boat builders. Ha!

Super name for this cutie - but Tigger is your special one
