We were not sure if this kitty is a stray or a feral. It calls out to us, which is a good sign that it is a stray. Both our mom and our neighbour have been leaving out food and water.
On the weekend, our mom brought out food as usual, and the small black kitty walked by the food and came over and rubbed against her. Yay, this is a friendly stray, but very thin, kitty. After a while, it came up on our deck and mombean was able to pick it up and put it on her lap. We wonder how and why such a nice kitty is wandering alone, probably for quite a while judging by how underweight she is. Yes, it is female. We do, however, live in an area where there are fox, coyotes, raccoons - it is not safe to live outside for a cat.
We have some exciting news. She has gone over to our furcousins, they are so excited to have her come and stay with them....forever. We think this is pawsome and we hope that she really likes her new home.
