Stranger in the House
There was a strange wee kitty in our house early this morning. We were awoke by that ringy thing, and Meowm stumbled out of bed. Next thing we know there is this PTU type thing coming in with a little meow coming out of it. We didn't actually get to see the little one, but we heard her/him. Meowm told us this is a sick, young community kitty and she/he is getting some help today from the v-e-t place. Brofur Sammy hid under the bed since he went away in one of those type PTU things and came back missing a couple of items on his body, if you get my drift. So, he is not very fond of those. This little kitty was tucked away in the human litterbox room where we heard the little one meowing and trying to get out of the PTU type thing. Meowm is going to have a bleary eyed day since she didn't get to sleep till around 1 and then was woken at 5 for thiskitty, then kept awake by the kitty's racket. At least the kitty will get well now and get spayed/neutered also.
Note from Meowm:
There is a gentleman that lives in my apartment complex that spoils our community cats. He literally caught this baby with his hands and tucked said baby in the trap. One of his cats is pretty feisty, so she came over to my place. Five in the morning is not a time I want to be dealing with this, but he is disabled and wasn't sleeping, so he watched for her/him till he was able to catch her/him. I hope this doesn't happen regularly at this time of morning.
What the boys don't know yet is the usual vet place that takes care of the community cats is not open this week. They will keep them till they are well, but since they are closed this baby will have to go elsewhere and they may not keep this one for that long. So the boys may be having company again, and may have to be kicked out of the bedroom at night simply to allow more space for a suitable cage for this baby.
The Best Friends person helping me with this was able to pet this kitten quite a bit so we are hoping with some more socialization this baby will be able to be adopted, rahter than returned to the colony. Wish us all luck, we will need it. Junior was more feisty last night, just knowing there was another little one in the house. Poor guy must feel like his home is being overtaken.
