Hang in There, Little Kitty

There is a lovely calico that we've never seen before. She looks to be about six months old or so, and she is incredibly friendly. She's not afraid of people, eats like her last meal was days ago, and really really wants to come into the house and get out of the snow. We, of course, can't let her in unless we know she is free of disease.

Her coat is a little coarse, which leads me to believe she's been outside for a while. But she's not feral like Miss Luna was. I wonder if she just got away from someone.

She just broke my heart when we opened the front door to go to work and there she was. My mother saw her yesterday and gave her some food. We really can't have another cat, but I can't just leave her out in the cold either.

Hold on, little kitty. Stay around the house. If you're there when I get home, I'll clean out the cage for you and get you out of the weather. Then the questions will be: do we put out signs? do we take her to the vet to have her checked out? do we take her to the shelter and hope someone adopts her? Someone would, I think. She's so sweet. Poor little thing.
