This is Shawn. He is interning in Slater's position as teacher of "Family Dog 101" to my kittens - and doing a great job. After only a little more than a week, he quickly became a Hero! If you like a good Hero story, read on...
One evening a young mother unexpectedly had 2 kittens while Shawn and I were out, but had hidden one from sight. So I assumed there was only one. Early the next morning Shawn would simply NOT go outside. He was insistent that I look under my sofa first, where I found a newborn, with placenta still attached, sleeping peacefully. However, had he not alerted me by his sense of smell, we would have spent the day outside mowing lawns while this kitten would have died. As soon as I did what he wanted, and found the kitten, he knew his job was done and darted for the door insisting on going out to "water" his favorite tree! What a smart boy he is!
By the way, mother and "both" babies are doing just fine!
