My husband heard what he thought was a small animal in distress early one morning. Upon investigation, he saw a tiny kitten trying to get in a neighbors window. He brought her inside to the bed where she instantly burrowed into my hair, created a nest between my neck and shoulder and fell asleep purring. We found out that the neighbor had found her in her engine compartment after she heard noises coming from underneath her hood while driving to work. She had been fed and then let back outside. Our neighbor couldn't keep her but she had already won our hearts. After a trip to the vet to make sure she was okay, Zoe found her forever home and I got a kitty that loves to cuddle.
