Once upon a time, there was a little white kitten. He lived at home with a lot of other cats but the kitten had to find all his own food. He was petted and played with but that was all that he got. He also had to keep a sharp eye out for Dogs. But he was not afraid he was busy playing all day long.
He ran in the grass. Made friends with the horses and chased bugs. He learned to catch mice to eat. and most of the time he had a pretty good time. Then one day he noticed that there were new neighbors in the house next door to his house. He went to check this development out. After all he was a friendly sociable kitten and you never know when you are going to get a treat.
There were two grownups and best of all two girls. One of the girls was special. She loved kitties. HE decided she would be his new best friend. He made sure to show up in their pasture when ever he saw them outside and he also made a point of trying to get picked up by the one little girl. He wasn't sure why but he knew she was his friend.
THe people were very nice and he spent more and more time with them. Pretty soon it got cold outside and wet and it was harder and harder to catch enough mice to keep his tummy full. HE was getting skinnier and skinnier. He continued to find ways to make it over to the new peoples house. He wanted to be a part of their family. THey were always picking him up and petting him.
One day late into the winter the little girls mom happened to see him late at night. He wasn't sure what hapened but from that day on she made sure he had food every day. He made sure to be there every day. This went on for a long time. The kitten had grown into a cat but they weren't sure who he belonged to but they kept petting him and feeding him.
What the kitty didn't know was that the people had made descreet enquires to find out if the people who were supposed to be his humans claimed him. THey of course said no they didn't. Then another neighbor said that a local farm wanted a farm cat so The kitten who had grown into a cat was taken one day to a farm a long way from the family the kitten wanted to be with.
The kitten wasn't sure why all he knew was he wanted to go home. So he high tailed it out of there and headed home. It took him three days. it was 18 miles away. But he made it home. The neighbor offered to take the kitten back to the farm but the mom said NO. Any kitty that went to such great lengths to be with them would be with them she said. He had chosen them and that was where he would stay.
The family already had another older cat who had always been an only, so the kitten only got to go in the little girls room for a long time not the rest of the house. But he didn't care he was home where he wanted to be with the people who loved him.
