This is the cat that i have recently adopted and brought into my life.
To re-iderate what i wrote in my journal, Once the storms started to hit, i noticed when i stepped outside for a smoke, a little orange tabby cat sitting beside the fence. I managed to scramble up the fence and catch his attention - and that of a skateboarder. He scared him, and his sudden motion alerted Blue, my dear dog, to his presence. The cat booked it Forward, to the front yard. I stepped outside and he was hiding under the bench. He immediately came to rub against my leg, he was far to clean and well kept to be a stray - or have been one for long. I used to have a cat that looked just like him when i was a child, and again when i was a teenager, so he struck a cord. I brought him some food, and a blanket over the chair so he had somewhere without the rain. Unfortunately, i have an as of yet unfixed female inside, and he was most definitely a boy.
We decided to bring him in after a freak hail storm - i just couldn't in good concious leave him out there![link]
Later, James and I drove around looking for signs, and asked a few of our friends in the area about him. One said he new him as a stray and has seen him around the past few months. It seemed about the time for rocket and blue to get their shots, and with a quick agreement around the house - we brought him along for a check up. He had no chip - And the Vet gave him a clean bill of health, shots and aged him at 9-10 months. So, July 13th is the birthday we picked. Now, we also realised that that lined up with someone getting a cat around September ( after staying with the mom - getting into the system for 2 months) and leaving it when they moved out. We live right beside the college, in a heavy student area.
But now, we're slowly getting him used to the Adult cat/and Dog (and getting them used to him!) little by little. If you have some suggestions on doing so please comment! (He loves rocket(duh) and is scared of blue - Rocket hates him and blue- and blue just wants to be everyone's friend.)[link]
this is him in rockets collar, the one we bough him is easier to take off, so im letting him get used to a collar with hers first.
this is him the day we found him.[link]
Now, James helped me out by paying for the cat`s shots and exam, but i promised that i would come up with the money to get them fixed. (Rocket and Twitch) but i need some help.
I know its been a while since ive been around for commissions, but it still is my main source of income and what i managed to save of Loan money from College isn`t enough (and would leave me with nothing)
So please, if your interested in a commission or know someone who is, please don`t hesitate to help!
i can`t all the cats that are left outside, but i can do this one little step to help this life.
