Kitty...do you need a home?

Today is so cold and snowy....we didn't even realize it was going to snow today~guess we quit watching the weather channel. Since it is so cold it produces a problem for me and my niece. A cute grey and white cat has come around the house and is so cold and hungry, but he looks well fed and healthy. I gave him food in a cute cat bowl and he ate it all up, but the water froze almost immediately. He is under the sunroom right now since there is protection from precipitation but it is not too warm there. We have already named him...we call him Ollie and we are waiting for Michael to return home from work to see what we should do to keep him warm. You'll remember I lost my Miss Kitton of 12 years at the end of October and maybe this is a sign to save a life. We still have Miss Indy and I'm not sure how she will take to another cat, although she has always been very adaptable. I don't know how he behaves in the house either although by the looks of him, he is a house cat. We have a basement, but it is full and I mean full of stuff! What to do, what to do....I said 2 days ago that I don't want any more animals!...(for a while anyway)
Ok, he's home...and we're going out in the dark and snow now to find the kitty. Oh, of course, he's nowhere to be seen. And we had Michael talked into keeping him over night...maybe he'll appear tomorrow. Michael looked at me and asked...Didn't you just say we weren't going to get any more animals? I said, "yes, but, uh, I probably changed my mind". He said "we're going to have to build a shelter in the back yard..if we had cows you'd have them in the house!" Good thing we can't have cows in town...what about chickens...?

Kim, yes you do, yes you do -- you want more animals. It's heartbreaking to loss the ones who traveled through so many years of our lives giving us joy and love.

Each one is different, each one is little cadeau. If you're sure he doesn't have a family, maybe he decided in all the families he could choose he wants you.

I have found and returned, found and kept more strays than you can imagine, including three horses. They all -- thank goodness -- had owners. They just wanted to gallop away to see what was on the other side of the fence.

Keep me au courant.

xo, Tish (P.S.: Love the name.)

Oooop I meant to say "lose" not "loss" -- typing too fast.. .

He is back today, and as Mike is off work today, he got to sit out in the cold but sunny day and hold him and pet him. Then when he's done being petted he pushes off and runs off to smell where all the other cats have left their scents...our yard is like a disneycatland to the neighbors 5 cats...He is not neutered but has been declawed. We'll see what comes of this.
