So [ profile] amminest and I just found a stray cat? It was hanging around her window meowing like whoa, so she called me over to come see. At first we couldn't find it, but when it heard Monica's voice it came running right over. He (we later found out it was a he) was pretty affectionate, rubbing against our hands, but also bit us a couple of times (not hard). He had a weird bald patch, like someone had shaved his butt and a few inches of tail. I'm not sure why someone would do that. Unless he had an injury on his tail, but he seemed ok with me petting the area. Weird.

So we didn't know what to do with a random cat without a collar in the middle of the night. I called the 24-hour emergency vet place in Glendale, and they said we could take him there and they'd give him a place to sleep and take him to MADACC in the morning. When we got there we found out he was neutered, so SOMEONE must have taken care of him in the past, but who knows what his story is now. They said they'd check for a microchip. I feel kind of bad if it's someone's pet that we just turned in as a stray, but seriously, put a collar on your cat, especially if it's an outdoor one...

So that was my adventure/good samaritan deed for the night. Don't worry, I washed my hands before petting the kittens. Who are adorable as ever. I keep expecting them to stop getting cuter, and it never happens.
