A new kitty in the house...
Sunday, May 13, 2012
Friday night, I stepped outside and a cat cam up to me. She had the same coloring (roughly) as Miss Kitty...and when I bent down to pet her, the poor thing was skin and bones. Literally -- her backbone and each vertebrae sticking out. When I picked her up, she could not have weighed more than 5 pounds, the poor thin thing!
Seriously, how could I have left her?!
So I brought her up to the apartment and fed her as much food as I could get into her. She's still incredibly thin, but she spent all of Friday and most of Saturday just sleeping, and today she was exploring the apartment and actually came out from under the couch to sleep on top of it!
One minor issue -- Miss Kitty is still not very happy about sharing her space. She and the new kitty are getting better but they still posture, hiss, spit, yowl, growl...sigh. Hopefully they start to get along better soon, because I don't think I can give up this needy little kitty!!
Here she is -- and so incredibly skinny you'll probably cry:
And here she is posturing with Miss Kitty:
