    A cat..

    Found her, nearly dead in a parking lot. Took her home and gave her a bath.. she was covered in blood, guess she was in a fight earlier.. such a sweetie though.. very unexpected.. but, I HAD to..

    Congrats. I know them feels. That's (sort of) how I ended up with one too.

    Make no mistake though, the cat adopted you.

    Good on you. You are now owned by a cat. And it's well worth it.

    looks a bit like a Clouded Leopard, at least the face. But that may very well change as she gains some weight back

    What makes you think the blood wasn't that of her previous owners, whom she killed before convincing you to take her home?

    Good on you for taking her in. :cheers:

    The primary reason that we know the earth is not flat is, because cats would have pushed everything off it by the 12th century.

    Conga-Rats on your new friend.

    Good for you. Looks like one of her ears got shortened... My wife just told me that cats that are “TNR” (trap - neuter - release), often get one of their ears “tipped”, meaning one of the ears gets clipped to allow them to be ID’d as fixed. I though it sounded inhumane but I guess it does allow this to be identified at a distance. Good luck with your new roommate.

    Yeah they'll do that. Gotta keep them separate for a while.

    Best of luck with the kitteh integration. Go slow, keep them separated but able to smell each other, exchange some bedding if you can over time. Introduce them at mealtime, where neither is trapped. As mentioned, that kitty is stray/feral, and it's quality of life would be exponentially better if you can give her a real home.
