Rally the Troops: Little Meow Needs a Home!

UPDATE: Little Meow has a home! Yay! Thanks to Giselle for taking this beautiful princess in. Here's a post with Little Meow and her new brother in her new home!

Calling all cat lovers! Calling all animal lovers! Calling everyone! Little Meow of "The Meows" fame needs a home!

That's right... You (or someone you know) could own your very own Meow! How could anyone pass up this opportunity?

Little Meow, for those of you who aren't regular readers, is a sweet, love of a kitty that I have been feeding in my office parking lot for at least the last three years. She and her best friend in the whole wide world, Daddy Meow, have always been the sunshine in my workdays, my serenity when I needed a break from my desk and what I look forward to every single morning when I pull in to the parking lot. Please be sure to scroll down to see her video!

Hi! My name is Little Meow and I am looking for a mommy or daddy... or both!

Unfortunately, a few weeks ago, we had to say goodbye to Daddy Meow. He was losing weight fast, so I took him to the vet where we found out he had a tumor in his abdomen. Cancer. And I had to make the hard decision to help him to the Rainbow Bridge.

Daddy Meow and Little Meow enjoying a tasty meal and some delicious water.

It was for the best, but that left Little Meow all by herself out there. It absolutely broke my heart. For the next few days, I could tell she was looking for him. She would just stare off towards where he would run out of or look around to see if he was coming before she ate. Believe me, I gave her lots of extra love during this time!

Roll, roll, roll... Little Meow being about as cute as can be! Please click to biggify for the cutest effect!

And now my biggest concern is for her safety. She is a petite princess living in a parking lot. We all know that's not so safe. But she's not your average parking lot kitty. Nooooo, not Little Meow! She is super, super special... Don't forget to watch her video down there!

Little Meow loves to rub. She'll rub your legs, your arms, your hips, your face -- whatever is closest to her. And the whole while, she's purring up a storm.

Little Meow comes when you call her, and will follow you around like a puppy. I have lapped the entire parking lot with her just prancing along at my ankles. I'm pretty sure if I walked 50 miles, she'd still be there, happy as could be. "Where are we going, Mom? Huh?! Huh?!" Adorable.

Oh, do I hear someone calling me? Is it YOU?

Little Meow knows what she likes. Dry food? Meh. Maybe if it's all your offering. But canned food? YES! Especially Friskies Shredded Turkey and Cheese or Fancy Feast Flaked Tuna Feast. She has other favorites, but these will win you her heart in a heartbeat.

Little Meow loves to talk. If you have all day, she'll talk to you all day. And whatever you say to her, she's got some kind of comment to meow back. Silly girl!

Little Meow has the longest, whitest whiskers and the cutest little white spot on the right side of her lip. Sometimes it makes her look like she's snarling, but believe me, she's not... it's just the spot!

Hugs from Little Meow and her cute lip spot!

Little Meow will get along with other cats. You should have seen how she used to rub on Daddy Meow and love him to bits. That's the part that was hardest about saying goodbye to him -- knowing that she wouldn't be able to do that any more. :(

Little Meow loves to be petted, until she's had enough, of course. She is a cat, right?! Her favorite spots are along her back -- long strokes across her whole little body, or the top of her head. Sometimes, if you catch her at an extra cute moment, if you pet the side of her face, she'll completely collapse into a rolling, purring kitty. Special moments! The video is coming up! Just a few more scrolls...

I have to tell you all: Finding Little Meow a home is one of the hardest things I've ever decided to do. Not because I think she won't find one (who doesn't want a Little Meow in their life?!), but because I love her so much and it's going to be hard to let her go. But, you know, what they say is true... If you really love someone, you'll let them go.

I know that by letting go of Little Meow and getting her out of unsafe parking lot, I'm doing what's best for her. She deserves a safe, loving home where she can be pampered all day, have her very own cat bed and a bowl with clean, fresh water at all times. These are the things most kitties take for granted, but something Little Meow has never had.

This is no place for such a special cat!

And so, I'm asking for all of your help. The Internet is a powerful place and the people I've met and know through this blog are an incredible bunch. I know we can do this. I know we can make Little Meow the happiest kitty on in the world.

That said, Little Meow's new mommy or daddy has to be a very special person... She is extremely friendly with me because she trusts me. She will need time to get to trust you. And she WILL trust you and love you, but she's probably going to need a bit to adjust to her new life inside a home. I don't know if she'll ever be a "lap kitty," but I strongly believe she'll be a "couch kitty" -- just close enough to be sitting with you, but not on you. Cats... ;)

I wish I could bring her home with me (You have no idea how much I wish this! I really and truly love this girl.), but I am already over the cat-limit in my condo and I can't risk us all getting evicted.

I know there is someone out there who will give her a home. If you are interested in adopting Little Meow, please email me at AdoptLittleMeow@gmail.com or with the link on the left side of this page. I am happy to answer any questions, send more pictures... anything!

Finally! It's video time...

If you can't see the video, you can also watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYpgB8xKe2s

Also, please know that Little Meow comes with all her initial vet bills paid. She'll have all her shots, all her tests and she is already spayed and everything. She also comes with the rule that you have to send pictures to me and keep in touch! Also, expect packages for her around the holidays and at random times when I just want to send her presents. Hehe. I feel like I'm giving away my daughter...

Please help spread the word about Little Meow. As of today, I am getting her out of the parking lot and she's going to live in a very temporary place at my friend's house. She can't keep her, but she's offered to "babysit" until she finds a furever home.

The fact is, I'm scared for Little Meow in the parking lot lately. People have been really starting to complain about me feeding her and I'm afraid someone is going to take it upon themselves to "solve the situation" on their own.

And that's why I am getting her out of there without even knowing where she's going yet. My main concern is this little girl's safety and happiness. Please help me spread the word and find her a home!

Please post on Facebook, Twitter and on your blogs if you have a few minutes! You can take any info or pictures or video from this post -- and please do! All I ask is that you include her email address, AdoptLittleMeow@gmail.com, so that anyone interested can get in touch with me.

Her stats: Little Meow is a little black tuxedo cat with auburn highlights (you can see them in the sun!). She is about 7 years old and weighs about 8 pounds. She is currently in Fort Lauderdale, FL, but if the right home is somewhere else, we'll find a way to make it happen! My name is Dorian Wagner and you can reach me and Little Meow at the email address up there.

Let's find Little Meow a home!!!


  1. What a darling! I hope she finds a wonderful home soon! I know the CB will come through!

  2. What a wonderful thing to do for the wee kitty xx

  3. Little Meow is so cute. I could be talked into taking her but we would have to get her up here to SC somehow. Maybe someone closer will take her. And maybe the friend that is taking her home now, will want to keep her.
    Good luck.

  4. Poor little baby, I really hope she finds a home, I too am at my limit on cats, 7 indoor only cats and I feed 6 ferals that I've had fixed. I hope she is already out of that parking lot, please keep us posted so we know she's safe and thank you for caring for her.


  5. I just posted on my blog: http://justmeowin.com/2010/07/02/its-fantabulous-friday/
    Let's find Little Meow a home!

    The Brew

  6. I sent your message to a friend, who could use a pet ... but she's not at the point yet where she can take one in.
    I would definitely take her in, but I'm over the limit at my apt; and like you, don't want us all to lose our home. I have 4; two older ones from rescue groups; and 2 that are 1-1/2 yrs old that I adopted from a feral cat at the barn where I volunteer. (the mom was also adopted, so the whole family is now safe)

  7. I tweeted, I FB'd - I'm glad she is out of the parking - hopefully she will have a furever home real soon.

  8. I can't believe that people would complain about
    you feeding a hungry kitty in the parking lot,
    but I have had the same thing happen to me!
    How can people be so cold hearted? God bless
    you for being such a wonderful, caring purrson.
    Please keep us updated on Little Meow's situation. Let us know she is safe. Thanks.

  9. Thank you all for your help so far. Let's keep spreading the word! Go Little Meow! :)

  10. The very best of luck to Miss Little Meow in finding a forever home! Hopefully someone will scoop up this ball of sweetness soon!

  11. What a wonderful story and pictorial on Little Meow. Bless you for taking her under your wing all this time! I have a similar story develop just this past week, a 5 mon. old (about) kitten living at Publix Five Points Supermarket parking lot in Wilton Manors. Dodging cars, running across travel lanes, laying under the shopping carts as the birds fly & peck her. I've been on a campaign to get her trapped and rehomed, but it's so, so hard. It's kitten season too so the rescue groups are full. A cashier has been feeding her (cannot take her home also at pet limit in her condo) so this kitty knows her, comes running, follows her, but when you try to pet her she gets a little shy. She also needs a little socialization and TLC, which makes finding that special home just little harder. I hope you find her the wonderful home she deserves after so long on the streets. Good luck to both of us (ps - I've got 10 mouths to feed right now and renting so no vacancy).

  12. I hope we can help, I just told everyone I know on Twitter and Facebook too!

  13. We hope this sweetie can find a furever home soon!! We'll spread the word!

  14. What a cutie! I will def. pass this along!

  15. what a WONDERFUL video Dorian! I will be SURE to spread the word. Well done - it's clear how special this little girl is to you and she is sooo lucky to have found you as her protector :)

  16. Little Meow is in my bathroom now inside her carrier. Still scared from her trip to the vet. I gave her some food. She hasn't eaten yet. She is still a little sleepy from the sedative they gave her. Hopefully she will eat and wake up happy in the morning!

    Dorian' mommy and foster mommy for the weekend.

  17. Will link on our blog tomorrow! Our Bitty was the 'tute's "office kitty." I bless every day that she came to me!

  22. HUGE THANKS, KC! Much, much, much appreciated!

  23. The Mommy wishes she could adopt Little Meow, every time she sees her she thinks of Whiskers but the Dad gave her a hard enough time over adding Artemisia to our family and the rest of us aren't sure we want another sibling. (PS Artemisia is Daddy's baby now, Mommy says she is an ungrateful baggage as she wouldn't live here if it wasn't for Mommy. But Artemisia says Daddy fixed her scrambled eggs her first day here cause she wouldn't eat the cat food). We has our paws crossed she finds a home soon and will help spread the word.

  24. little meow is so cute. i would love to take her but hubby has made it clear we have reached our limit w/ 3 cats and 3 dogs. we just added 3 pups (1 stray female who turned out to be pregnant, kept one of her pups and kept a pup we were fostering) to our home this year and it has our budget stretched. your love and care for little meow will pay off w/ her finally getting her furever home. bless you and we will be praying little meow goes to her new home soon.
