LOL at #1. Picking up strange pussy at a bar.

I like the variations on the theme, the two "My cat, NOT my house" images were fun foils

LOLOLOL

That's how my parents acquired their last cat.  Mom was getting home one evening and this fluffy grey tabby comes running down the street (dead end) yowling her head off, comes running up the driveway and sits at my mom's feet.  Like "Well?  Where's my food?"  A most prolific hunter of mice and chipmunks.  Mom's been thinking about getting another cat since she can hear the mice in the walls now.

i have a cat that comes by at all hours, so whenever i pass the back door i have to look for him.  i've gotten up at 6am and he's been there, i've woken up to go to the bathroom and he's there at 130am, and any time in between

he's been sporadic lately, the local foxes have him spooked.  he must be feral, i've been feeding him 2 years and he never lets me get anywhere near him.  if he's not hungry he doesn't even pay attention to me

Our youngest cat came to us from the back yard.

I opened the back garage door and her head popped up from behind the yard clippings. She saw me and ran to me like I was her mommy. I noticed right away her deformed paws, poor baby. She wasn't interested in any food, just wanted me to pet her. Which I did, profusely, and then went back into the house, thinking she must belong to someone to be so friendly.

Well, the next day, she came running again and this time was very hungry. This went on for a couple more days and I finally decided that if she wasn't chipped, we were keeping her. Took her to the vet for a check up and to see about a possible chip. Turned out, no chip, but her feet were even more messed up than I thought.

Little kitty is polydactyl and some of her many claws were growing in circles into her flesh and her feet were damaged and infected. If I had not taken her in, she would have died from the infections. She has multitudes of claws, some very small and folded and tucked away inside extra flaps of claws. Some claws have three tips. It's bizarre and mutant.

Anyway, we keep her feet very well taken care of now (along with the rest of her tiny 8lb body) and she is simply the most loving and sweet cat we've ever had. However, she takes zero shiat from other animals, like our other two cats. Didn't have to worry about our big boy and girl beating up on the little one - she is feisty AF and staked her own claim in our house.

That was fun lols.  We had a garage cat momma when I was a teen.  My family got back from vacation and there she was on shelf in the garage with six kittens.  We already had a Tom who was definitely "AW HELL NAW" to any other cats in the house so we adopted out all the kittens and the momma.

Imagining her glee after that first can of gooshy food when we discovered her puts a smile on my face.

silvervial: Little kitty is polydactyl and some of her many claws were growing in circles into her flesh and her feet were damaged and infected. If I had not taken her in, she would have died from the infections.


Agi has this issue, with 7 toes on each paw, and the front ones are a paw and a half, with the half pointing in towards the main paw). Vet recommended front declaw, because we couldn't trim them short enough to not dig into her skin. We caught it early on, tried things for a few months (nail caps didn't work. The plastic pressing in on her skin made it worse.) She is our chubby little Baby (Agi is Korean for baby), and no infections since.

I have dogs.  The beam holding up my front porch has a new bird's nest each year for the last ten years.  My last two dogs have sat on that porch chasing off NOT my cat.  When my last dog died, I took a year off from pet ownership, and NOT my cat killed the baby birds.

I've a new dog this year, but the birds didn't come back.

So, I had two Great Danes.  Left the back door open one day and soon one dog is convinced there's something under the stove.  Then I noticed bits of gray fur on the counter and when I entered the kitchen saw a grey blur disappear under the stove again.  Finally used a stick to scare whatever it is out from under the stove and it turns out to be a tiny, starving kitten.  Put her in a box and fed her and she decides this is her new home.  Kept her for a week while a I tried looking for an owner, but then she started doing that cat thing where she's stare at the dog. then dive under a piece of furniture and the 120 pound Great Dane goes crashing into it.  Decided she needed a new home.   Walked by a neighbor who wanted to know what was in the box.  Showed him and he insisted on showing his wife, who picked up the kitten and basically refused to let her go (kitten decided this was her human).  All their cats had been rescues and they loved the story about a tiny kitten who decided to move in with two Great Danes.  Happy ending all around...though I did miss her.  The dogs, not so much.

Couple of years ago, this guy started coming to our backyard every morning. He'd eat some of the food we'd leave out for ferals and strays, then go about his business only to re-appear in the late afternoon - for dinner - then he'd be out all night doing cat stuff. After a while, he'd come inside after eating and crash on our sofa for an hour or so before embarking upon the aforementioned outdoor cat business.

One night, before a huge thunderstorm rolled in, he sauntered off after dinner and never returned. Nice cat, still miss him. We DON'T miss the flea infestation he left us with, however. Took a few months to eradicate those little farkers.

new record - he was begging at 215am this morning.  he must've left some because the bowls were moved around from where i put them down, which means the racoon came and finished the leftovers

In the 4 years I've lived here, I've made friends with a bunch of stray cats ( it really seems to be a problem here) with two that have decided they live here now( the orange and calico) and one that stays for awhile, then can disappear for weeks/months at a time(grey).

Managed to get the orange and calico their shots and spayed/neutered but the grey is too unpredictable to schedule a vet visit for.

All of them just decided to show up over the years and stake their claim.
