Some time ago I was walking my 2 dogs down to the pond and I saw a small kitten from the corner of my eye.
My dogs took off after him untill I told them to stop. For 3 weeks we would look for that little kitten and call for him through the tall grass and old apple trees.
There was bad weather around that summer month and I was hoping that the kitten would be safe.
Plus there are coyotes around here in the woods.
Then one sunny afternoon guess who shows up at our house in the garden? It was this little kitten. He was making some real loud cat noises and he sounded a lot bigger than he was. He then made his way into the garage with the 2 dogs watching and being good.
This little guy made his way and walked about a 1/4 of a mile from our back pond up to the house.The weather that we had during the 3 weeks that Hemi was out in the woods by the pond was a mix of thunder and lightning plus high winds. There is a pile of old cedar rail fencing that I have stored near the pond and I kinda think that’s where he was making his home at that time.
This is the area where I first spotted Hemi
Hemi turned out to be a great cat who is very smart – sometimes I think he’s part dog as he loves to play fetch with his catnip play mouse.
