Scout Picture of the Week

A year ago yesterday, I found Scout in the middle of Compromise Street in Pigspittle.  Her eyes were infected, she was wet, and meowing like crazy.  I took her home.  A couple of months later, when she weighed enough, the vet removed her eyes.  They were just too far gone to save.  But she bounced back like a trooper.  A friend of mine gave her the name Scout, after To Kill a Mockingbird‘s Miss Jean Louise Finch.  She is the center of our universe.

    I loved hearing how Scout got her name. I just re-read To Kill A Mockingbird earlier this year…such a treat the second time around.
    Cheers to your feisty fighter Scout!!

      She is just as precocious as Scout Finch! Thanks, Michelle!

      Are you missing posts about Scout? Or from me? Scout has way more friends than I do on Facebook, so I wouldn’t be surprised (or offended) if you wanted more Scout posts. 😉

      Always good to see your face on my blog, Meredith. <3

    Oh, that photo from the day you met Scout just breaks my heart. But the ”now” photo – that one makes me smile. Nothing sweeter than a sleeping kitty 🙂

      Thanks, Janna. Yeah, seeing her that day broke my heart. No way was I going to leave her on the street. She is a magical little kitty.

    My two cats are sisters, fourteen years old, and recently I realised that one of them has started to lose her eyesight quite badly. But, apart from being startled and immensely wary when things appear out of nowhere on the floor in front of her, it hasn’t affected her at all – her mood and personality is completely unchanged by the drastic in the world around her. I’ve been hugely impressed with her and her adaptability, I must say.
    And Scout’s obviously the same, so I’m pleased that she managed to choose her home so wisely 🙂
