How Bickett got his name

You know Bickett, (Mr. B) (the cat that bites) (the cat I love)!!!



One Sunday morning in November 2005, I was on my way to church.  Coming up to the busiest intersection in town, I spotted this tiny kitten lying flat in the middle of the road.  At first I wasn't sure if the kitten was dead or injured.  I was afraid to look!!  There was van approaching the intersection.  I stopped the car, turned on the flashers and  jumped out..  Again, I was afraid to look!!  I reached down and picked him up.  His tiny claws were so gripping the pavement, I had to pull him lose.  He seemed to be okay.  How in the world did such a young kitten get in the middle of the road?? 

I went on to church that morning.  I stopped at a station and got a box to put him in, and a small carton of milk.  I gave him some of the milk, cuddled him up in my sweater, and left him in the box.  When I came out an hour later he was still sleeping.

All this happened on Bickett Boulevard!!!

Bickett has had lots of medical problems.  He also bites if you pet him and linger too long!! :)  He will even bite me, and I rescued him!!!  Our vet, Dr. Davis, said that Bickett's problems probably came from being taken away from his mother too soon, and being mistreated.  Like maybe being thrown out a car window???  Bickett has really gotten more gentle and sweeter, now that he is older.  I just love this cat!!

I didn't mean to go on and on....

Thank you looking at my blog.

Love,

  1. Dear Henny,
    What a story! I'm sniffing and looking around for Kleenex...Thrown out a window?!?
    I'm so very glad for kind souls who help the helpless, and give another chance for a peaceful, loving home. God bless your good heart.

    Love,
    Jen

    1. Dear Jen,

      Thank you. It's probably good that I will never know how Bickett got there or what he went through.

    1. Dear Lesa,

      I think I need help!!! I worry about animals too much. Almost to the point of letting it drive me crazy!! Like seeing an injured animal, it takes me forever to get it out of my mind!!!
      Thank you, Lesa
