Girl who dances in a cage

Had a visitor

As someone was leaving my building a black cat entered the building through the open door. They checked with me in case it was Vader. He was not Vader. He was smaller and cute though. He followed me upstairs to my townhome so I let him in out of the rain. He let me pick him up and hold him and my heart just melted. I gave him some cat food and water. Then Vader came into the kitchen and seeing the new cat threw a hissy fit - literally. Having originally come from a foster home with lots of other animals I was hoping Vader would be a little more tolerant. But it was not so.

The new cat did not have a collar but he appeared well fed and affectionate. I was tempted to keep him and check the shelters to see if anyone reported him missing. But it was too risky to keep him in my home. I didn't know if he was litter trained and I had no way of knowing if he had fleas. Once was dry and had a full belly and got lots of love I had to send him on his way.
