Kamala’s Red Bowl

Kamala was a smart tuxedo gurl kitty
who lived on our deck for many years.

We think she was abandoned by the previous tenants,
and she was fascinated by
our houseful of cats,
but careful.  She talked to
our indoor cats, and sometimes she hung close to Mitchell if
he was doing outside work.
We made sure she was warm
in winter and had food
and clean water, but she
just would not venture indoors.  When we were
ready to move to Portland,
we told the other cats
they better get her in
so she could move with us.

Sure enough, it somehow worked.  We were calling her daily, explaining we wanted her to come with us, we didn’t want to leave her behind.  Govinda also sat and called to her from the bedroom, and stopped hissing when she came close.  Finally one day Mitchell walked outside on the deck and she literally ran and jumped into his arms.  She got along with everyone!  We took her to our vet, got her cleaned up and vaccinated (she was healthy) and she moved with us to Portland!

She was a grand cat, who adored Mitchell;
Now she is the girl behind the red bowl!

    This is so wonderful. That’s how we got Piper. I had been feeding her, along with the other outside cats, and she ran into our house. Twice. I told my husband, “That’s it! She is ours!” You don’t choose the cat; they choose you. That painting of her is so cute–I love the paws!
