Here Pussy Pussy

We often have stray cats coming onto our property and I have spent many a night chasing strays out of our house in the middle of the night.  I remember once shortly after we moved into our current house about 16 years ago when we found 6 stray cats sleeping on the chairs of our dining room table.


We never encourage them and my own cats get very territorial and chase them away as well. 


Two nights ago we heard a lot of meowing and hubby and I got up to investigate.  We found this poor little timid thing sitting in the doorway to our office.  This is usually when I start going berserk and chase it away, but there was something different about this one. 


I gently picked it up and shooed it outside.  It tried again yesterday evening and again I shooed it away.

This morning it was at the door again – crying – and it was pouring with rain.  And of course I crumbled.  I just couldn’t throw it out. 


So out came a bowl of food and water for the poor thing.  It seems quite sweet and it must be very young.  My own cats don’t seem to be particularly bothered with it so we have let it stay. 


If it is still around in another day or 2 I will do the whole vet thing and get it de-wormed / de-flea’d if required.  Maybe it will have a RFID chip in it and we can find it’s real owner – if not, I suppose it will have a new home.
