The cat, to whom my neighbor gave the name Stella, from whom I attempted to stay detached [thus calling her 'kitty' 'cat' 'kid' or even 'felis catus'] has found a temporary home which is more of the 'foster to adopt' variety.
Here are some shots from the past 2 days. I must admit i get a little misty-eyed to think of how sweet she was and stuff like that but in the end, i saved her life and now have made another person happy. double win. i don't have an animal in my house so my allergic friends can come and go as they please. As it turns out, it was nice to have the company but people are of more importance than animals and many people couldn't or wouldn't enter a home with a cat [medical and cultural reasons]. So, to dear little kitty I say, "You are a brave little kitty. You made me laugh even when you were clawing my face for more food. You cost me more than I was planning on spending this weekend and I might have to go back to the ATM because of you. But you were worth it. Make the new lady happy, bring her joy, and please don't jump off her balcony."
She had an eye infection in her left eye, but it cleared up with the drops.
I kept her warm with a hot water bottle when I had to leave her alone. She liked that little box.
She really liked to crawl all over me, especially onto my shoulder. See how brave the little kitty was?
I'm sure this is not an "everyday" occurrence, but it happened today.
I stayed late at work to finish up some projects. I went up to grab a bite to eat and on my way back to the office passed by an open park area where there was a kitten screaming. I went over to see what was the matter and found a little kitty with no mom in sight. A girl leaned out the window and said "The cat has been crying all day."
For people in that neighborhood, cats are dirty and having animals in the house is just weird.
The little kitty came out from under the bush and walked right up to me. She was so hungry. I bought a small milk, returned to the office and began to feed her through the straw. That was quite unproductive. So i found a small eye drop bottle, emptied the contents, filled with milk, immersed in a bowl of hot water to warm the milk and fed her.
I don't really want a cat. So, for now, let's just say we're in the foster care program and qualify that this is not "foster to adopt."
