Mom E Cat showed up at Sue King’s Clearwater home in February 2012, and she enjoyed watching Mom E climb her neighbor’s oak tree and jump onto her patio roof, where the cat lived in the eaves. In March, four little heads popped up on the roof, and Mom E earned her name.
Over about a week, King managed to catch each of the kittens as Mom E hissed and swatted at her. She gave the kittens to Second Chance for Strays to find loving homes.
King then caught Mom E to get her fixed. All was well until July, when she went missing for four days. She returned wide-eyed, thin and with a tilted head.
King took Mom E to the vet twice for shots and gave her antibiotics for two weeks, but no one could figure out what was wrong with her or how to fix it. Her head is still tilted, but Mom E has adapted to it. She has now adopted King as her human, who can now pick her up and give her kisses. Mom E is definitely a part of the King family. Mom E makes King smile every day.
As Tampa Bay Newspapers pet photo winner, Mom E wins a $25 gift certificate to either Largo Feed or Park Feed in Pinellas Park.
