Kitten Ditty Mao

Posted by firstman2006 on July 17, 2006

Ditty Mao was rescued from a certain road kill death when I was shopping for corn pie at Burkholder’s farm produce stand outside of Topton, PA. The little fluff ball was under another customers tire. The friendly little kitten came to me and affectionately purred while being held. I asked the farmers daughter how much the kitten was, and she said to take him. What a deal…I go for corn pie(still have not gotten any this year) and end up leaving with a kitten.

 I took him with me to visit my kids at their house, and they wanted to keep him, but he was already promised. They have since made a deal with their mom so they can go to the farm down the road and get another cat. They currently have two full grown cats…Duece and Pepper and Milton the dog who is a Sheepdog Schnauzer mix. 

After putting the kids to bed the little kitten and I headed out to Boyertown. With a bowl of food in the back seat, I did not hear a peep out of him until the whole way home. Lizzie was awake and very surprised when I came in with a kitten, but very happy, since we had been looking at kittens with her second son a few weekends before. Ditty was named by Lizzie’s oldest son, who I am told names all of the cats.  The other kids do name them, but his names seem to stick. I am not sure were or what the names means…something to do with the Simpsons or a Beastie Boys song.

Lizzie made an appointment for Ditty at the vet for the next week. He had a clean bill of health except for ear mites. The Vet gave him a dose of an oitment for that, plus a heart worm pill and a dose of flee and tic killer which I had the privledge of administering. We also went to Wally world and bought the boy some toys to keep him busy.

Herman, the oldest and previously the only cat in the house for at least 6 months is the only member of the family that does not like Diddy. We had two other cats, but we had to get rid of them due to problems with them urinating all over the house.  Everyone accuses Herman of plotting to get rid of them…like he got punk, another cat run over. Hopefully Ditty won’t have any of these problems…so far so good. Herman is just a jealous cat so we will have to keep and eye on him. I am sure he will come back inside once the weather gets cold.
