Stray Cat Becomes the Inspiration for a Touching Children’s Story

without comments

Inspired by a stray cat that showed up on his doorstep, A.J. Fontaine’s book, “A Kitty and His Dream,” is the touching story of the antics of a stray cat named Outside Kitty. Nicknamed “O.K.,” he is an adorable cat who dreams of living the good life with a loving family.

“And he doesn’t just wait for a family to find him, so he tries to find them!” Fontaine said. “This sets off a heart-warming chain of events that are challenging, exciting and cute.”

The children’s book, which is available through, contains a marvelous story of making your dreams come true that the whole family will enjoy reading. The tale even touches on life in an animal shelter, and the responsibility of pet ownership. The engaging pictures by J.G. Graphics and Designs capture the cat’s expressions, and will keep even the youngest cat lovers involved.

Readers are encouraged to donate as well.

Please send donations directly to the Humane Society of Douglas County.

Help Kitty Witty

without comments

new kitty 001

The real life Kitty Witty came to us from the Humane Society of Douglas County. When he arrived there, he had been found in Lake Nebagamon, Wisconsin, with a cut on his hind leg. The people at the Humane Society helped him by bringing him to the vet, and having his wound cared for. He was also neutered, and given his shots. They took care of all the bills, which were considerably higher than the small adoption fee that we paid.

We took him home and made him part of our family. He went through a couple of name changes. He was named “L’il Man” when we first got him, then “Smokey”, because of his coloring, then “Shadow”, because of the way he follows us around. And, finally, he comes running when his Mom calls, “Kitty Witty Witty”!

After his big adventure, he no longer goes outside to play, nor does he seem to have any interest in doing so. If the other kitties go out, he’ll watch them through the screen, and call out to them. Probably because he’s afraid they’ll get lost like he did.

In addition to discovering how much he likes treats, he found the love of his life, Tiny Kitty, after joining our household. Tiny Kitty doesn’t necessarily share the same love for him. He has to sneak up on her when she’s sleeping in order to snuggle. Then he’s so proud of himself, that he purrs so loud that he wakes her up.


There are many more animals that need homes. The Humane Society helps hundreds of pets like Kitty Witty find homes each year, and they need your help to do it.

This is where you can help Kitty Witty help those who helped him. Find out more, and donate today.

Please send donations directly to the Humane Society of Douglas County.

Thank you.

P.S. Tell them Kitty Witty sent you!

Help Homeless Pets Get the Homes they Deserve

without comments


When Outside Kitty first found us, we contacted the Humane Society of Douglas County, as well as putting him on Craigslist. The Humane Society immediately offered to take him in and “Keep him warm and safe.” Not wanting to see him put in a cage, we opted to keep him around our house in hopes someone would claim him, or offer him a home.

After several months, and several hundred dollars spent heating the garage for him, we contacted the Humane Society again. They offered to take him in again, and help find him a home. The kindness of everyone at the Humane Society was overwhelming. The animals that are put in their care are very lucky. And these people are there to help on a daily basis. Now they need your help.

The Humane Society of Douglas County serves over 300 animals, like Outside Kitty, each year. All of them need some care, and all need new homes. They rely completely on license fees, adoption fees and donations for their operating expenses.

It’s up to you to help those who can’t help themselves.

Donate today. Please send all donations directly to the Humane Society of Douglas County.

Thank you!

P.S. Tell them O.K. sent you!
