We adopted a new cat. Shes very sweet and very smart. She showed up on our doorstep and wanted to come in. Shes a stray cat that someone left when they moved away. Have you ever took in a stray cat?

Congratulations on the new cat. Towards the end of last year, out neighbors got a kitten who was an inside and outdoor cat. She was always at our house day or night. We would let her come in sometimes and play with our kitten. She would always eat my cats food and take naps at our house all of the time whether she was in our house or not. My neighbor finally told us to just keep the cat since she seemed to like us better then them. We had already bonded with her so it was no big deal to keep her. She is sooooo sweet and loves everybody. Well, everybody except her original owners. HaHaHa!

HI, haven't heard from u in a long time. Hope things are well w/u. NO, I have never taken in a stray cat. My grandmother use to take them in all the time. My mother didn't like cats so we never had one.

This have been pretty hard for me lately. We had to sell all our possesions and move to a furnished place. I did find a job but it barely pays the bills. There is nothing out there right now. I do hope this bad economy turns around soon. I did sell my computer thats why I wasnt online for awhile but now we have this lap top that someone bought for us as a gift. Glad to be back online sure did miss it!

We haven't ever taken in a stray animal. We live in a big city and most animals that run lose are eventually hit by a car. Loads of traffic in our area. Enjoy your kitty and hope you have many years of fun and entertainment with her.

I guess all of our cats were strays one way or the other. Tiger and Sunny's mom was abandoned in a field and my friend rescued her and her kittens. Oreo adopted us. I think maybe somebody had moved away and left him. And Jason came from a shelter and we fostered him and his litter mates.

Hi MM I have never owned a cat, but ddo have dogs, so really have never had a stry cat or dog turn up on my doorstep, though my neighbor did have her cat start going to a house on out estate and she would come and say good morning to my neighbor but now has gone to the lady down the road. My neighbor was upset but knew she wanted to live with the other lady so didn't do anything to get her cat back,it is a shame as her cat was a beautiful ginger tabby...LoLo

We get them here all the time, We have one cat that we love very much. and if any others show up especially little ones i always try to find them a good home, because now we can not afford to have any more pets than we have now.
