A cat named Strider brought home a little street kitten who followed him everywhere. He came into the house, carrying the kitten in his teeth by the «withers,» and decided that the baby should stay here.
Tiny (who was named Jimley) was very dirty and had a lot of fleas. His new owner bathed him, which the kitten wasn’t too happy about, but he still got a lot of dirt washed off him.
There are quite a few stray cats in their neighborhood. Strider used to be one of them himself. His owner says that he once came right to them when they were working in the street, meowing and rubbing and purring… Then they decided to take him in and he became an official member of their family.
This time, however, Strider chose who he was to join their family.
