|R.I.P. Mama David April 17, 2009 to August 1, 2014|
Mama David was born on NOL-NOC Estates on April 17, 2009. She was born in a chicken nest box and shared two mothers with her three other siblings. Her feline mother, Miss Hissy and her chicken mother, Elenore Hen. Her name David was chosen because of her closeness to one sibling that was very large and David was very small so they were named David and Goliath. Because there was a wrestling match for mothering these kittens between biological feline mother and adopted chicken mother, they were featured in a story in COUNTRYSIDE MAGAZINE, Sept/Oct 2009 issue. It is rare for kittens to be born in a nest box surrounded by eggs.
Mama David was struck and killed in a hit-and-run accident on the road in front of her home on August 1, 2014. She was preceded in death by her mothers Miss Hissy (a beautiful Maine Coon cat) and Elenore Hen (a lovely Silky mix hen). She is survived by her Significant Other, Darth Vader, (residence unknown) and children Olive, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewy and Yoda of the home. Mama David has other grown children that are scattered over the area and unaccounted for.
Mama David will be greatly missed.
