Zorro was on his way from Southern California to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The woman that rescued him, found his mother and the rest of the litter in a field near her home. She found the mother was not taking care of the kittens so she took them in and had the mother spayed. Once she had Zorro nursed back to health, she found a new home for him in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and utilized Truckers Pet Transport, to help get him there. At only 8 weeks old, Zorro was a brave little kitten. He was not scared of being in the truck at all. We picked up another cat that was much older than Zorro on the same trip named Pauly. They were both heading East so we took them together. Zorro would watch Pauly climb into the dash to look outside and then he would have to do the same. Despite his much smaller size, he would try to do whatever Pauly did. I was happy to hear that at his new forever home, Zorro would have some other cat companions to learn from. When Zorro would see you were getting his food ready, he'd get very excited. He'd try to climb his way up to you all while meowing. He was so tiny so it was hard for him to even get up on the bed but that did not stop him from trying. He wasn't afraid to try. He'd climb up your shoulder and onto the seats, around the doors and then back to the seat.
Although, trying to be brave and strong, Zorro still needed much love. He liked to curl up on my lap and sleep. Occasionally, he'd jump down to get some water or food and then he'd sit, looking up at me and meow. I'd scoop him back up and he'd nestle in for another nap. He liked to be up front with whom ever was driving most of the time. He just wanted to be with you. His new Mom is getting a great new friend in Zorro.
Many Thanks to Connie Jackson for bringing us both Zorro and Pauly. She drove out of her way to accommodate us and it was greatly appreciated. It was cool to meet her as well. Connie is an actress and has had roles in the TV Show NCIS, in the movie African Gothic and several others.
Meeting Zorro's new forever Mom was a great pleasure as well. She was so kind and happy to finally get to meet little Zorro. She informed us the rest of Zorro's siblings would be ready for new home very soon. Maybe they can hitch a ride with us as well. A truck full of kittens wouldn't be such a bad thing.
