Carport Kitty is our Guard Cat


For her many fans who ask, Carport Kitty has survived the summer heat in South Carolina to mark her one year stay with us on our carport. She continues to stand with the people of Ukraine every day of her life – as do Pretty, three barking dogs and me.

She is now our official Guard Cat – Beware: she does not suffer fools gladly.

  3. So pleased CPK stands with the rest of you on Ukraine. Guarding your yard seems ample recompense for her board and lodging.
