I can't resist taking in stray cats of all shapes and sizes. I've helped dozens over the years, but at the moment we don't have a cat to our name. At our peak we had 5 living with us and 2 visiting.

Cloudybutnice, Any stray animal would be blessed to find a loving homes with all of you here. It is nice to know that they are loved and well taken care of. I want Babetoo to enjoy the new kitten Charlie to the fullest. There are so many more animals out there that will not have the same chance and that is really sad.

I want everyone to know that my advice was my opinion only. I was answering the question for whatever my opinion is worth. For any number of reasons animals can travel quite a ways and become lost. I forgot to mention in my other posts that several years ago I gave a kitten a ride unbeknownst to me under my van. While I was out of town a kitten had climbed up underneath my wheel well. I was traveling down the highway and I heard a small thud. I looked out my rear view window and a small kitten tumbled out from underneath, picked itself up and ran toward a house. I turned around and went back and I could hear it meowing behind a rocked landscaped wall. I wasn't fond of the idea of putting my hand behind a rock wall and digging around, but I was concerned for the kitten and it had to be terribly frightened. It wouldn't have had a chance to survive on it's own. I was able to grab it and I took it back to where I had been earlier parked. I found it's grateful owner. This kitten traveled 8 miles underneath my car. Cats and kittens will do this to find a warm spot to take a nap if temperatures drop. They will also do this if they chase a mouse that runs up under a car for protection. I'm sure it looks like a great playground to some kittens, too.

I know there are a lot of unwanted animals out there that very mean people dump off. I would love to see them caught and fined dearly. I'm so happy that there are people like you that will give these animals another chance at life. But I also know that stuff happens and people lose their pets by accident and it's the last thing that they wanted to happen. I just can't call an animal I find an unwanted stray until I have more information. That's all. I in no way want to hurt anyone's feelings, nor do I think I am better. Absolutely not! I see people here with very big and generous hearts. I would be happy to call any one of you "friend."

charlie and thomas are doing well together. thomas has only batted him twice, no claws. hissed at him once, when thomas was in my lap and charlie tried to join us. lol. he is a clown and has made thomas be more alert. he is very sweet and loving. he is adding a lot of joy to my life.

Good to hear they are getting along well.

Our Nikita would rather never again deal with Jezebel. Jezebel has different ideas about that.

Both of mine are upset that I don't want to cuddle today. It's just too hot. The little one is laying underneath the floor fan, sleeping.

So glad Charlie is making himself at home and you are enjoying him.

i don't know what to do about it. no collar. hate to call humane society. but on the other hand it might have a chip.

guess i could just feed and water it and not let it in the house.

what would you do?
That's what my parents did. A stray cat came along over a year ago, and she was pregnant. My parents never let her inside the house. Instead they created a little spot for her to sleep and they feed her everyday.
