Open letter from Olivia, the Kenai kitty who needs a new home

My name is Olivia. My dad has to leave to start another business in the lower 48 and he can’t take me with him. I’m very sad, as I know he is. Do you know anyone who could give me a good home?

I’m clean. I go outside in the spring, summer and fall through a cat door, but like to stay inside during the cold months. I am 2 years old. I love people and am very friendly.

I don’t bite except when someone bites me. I won’t have kittens because my dad had me fixed. I didn’t even know I was broken but he did anyway.

I like to bring shrews home to dad but he doesn’t seem as excited as I am. He puts a bell on my neck so I don’t chase birds. I don’t know what the big deal is. They seem to want me to chase them but they keep going up in the air.

I know I could love you if you could love me. Maybe not as much as my dad, but we could have lots of fun. I will miss my dad but he said he would come and visit me if you would allow that. He also said he would give you a big supply of what I like to eat. I will be grateful for whatever you choose for me. I really like tuna! I hope I hear from someone.

Thank you!

My number is 907-398-1765. (My dad will answer because people have a hard time understanding me on the phone).

Sincerely,

Olivia

My recipe is for old-fashioned doughnuts, and since I make these maybe twice a year, I don’t skimp on the sugar and fat.
