Tesla


Tesla has lots and lots of mousies, but this red one is her very favorite.  He used to be called One-Eyed Pete because Tesla had chewed one of his eyes off.  Now that she has chewed off his other eye, he is No-Eyed Pete. Tesla was born on June 10, 2007.  Her fur Mom showed up on a nice lady's porch, very pregnant.  The nice lady took her in and took care of her and her kittens.  The nice lady decided to keep Tesla's fur mom and to find homes for the kittens after they had had all their kitten shots.  She took the kittens in for their shots to the vet where Tesla's Mom works and she liked her very much, but she had just gotten married and they didn't have their house yet.  The nice lady agreed to keep Tesla until Tesla's new Mom and Dad had their house.  At three months old, Telsa moved into her forever home, where she is very happy.  Tesla just loves the bed and especially loves the feather comforter.  Tesla is full of kitten energy and just loves to play.  She plays fetch with her mousies and hide-and-seek with her Mom.  Her Mom will hide just out of sight, then peek around the corner.  Tesla runs up to her Mom, then takes off to find a hiding spot.  Her Mom approaches her, then backs off and hides around the corner again and they start all over. Catnip doesn't have much of an affect on Tesla yet, but she doesn't need it.  She will tear all around the house just for fun.  Tesla has had some health problems, but she seems fine now.  She has to eat special food for her digestion, but she loves it.  Tesla is also very good at guarding her house.  Just let any bug try to get in.  Tesla sends them off in a hurry.

                                      Tesla loves to play hide-and-seek.
                                      Her Mama hides, then gives a peek.
                                              Tesla runs in
                                              And tags her shin,
                                      Then runs off, a hiding place to seek.
