“But the Kitten, how she starts, crouches, stretches, paws, and darts!”
— William Wordsworth, English Romantic poet

You’re just a 4-month-old kitten gray Domestic Shorthair, found as a stray in St. Charles. Tiny and alone, left in a carrier behind a tree, no food, no water on a warm autumn day.
It’s hard enough to be a kitten when you know where you live and you’ve learned your surroundings, but when you’re carried about not sure when you’re going to get your next meal, life seems almost too hard for such a young, innocent lady.
Maybe that’s why she has a little bit of an attitude, a little bit of “I’ve already lived a couple of cat-lives beyond my days of being on earth. I’ve seen far more than most cats ever will.”
It’s for that reason that Jude needs a stable home, one that will keep her for all of her days and allow her to live as she was meant to live. She prefers to be alone, but is learning to get along with other cats, although she can be a bit sassy towards even the older ones.
It doesn’t take her long, however, to make herself at home as her kitten instincts kick in and she finds anything and everything to play with as every place becomes her playground.
Jude’s young life didn’t start out on such a positive note, but she’s hoping that she can finally “take a sad song and make it better” if someone can let her into their heart.
