Meet Pumpkin, I'm not sure if we're going to keeo her but she ran into our apartment, skinny, full of fleas, and the neighbors said she was a stray. So I'm not sure what to do with her. It's too cold to take her outside and I just don't want her to starve. As of right now I posted an ad in my Facebook pet group. But I'm curious what other people would do. Considering they're not allergic to cats.

Keeping a pet is a commitment.....it is like a long term relationship.... if i couldn't commit i would give it to a animal shelter. ...or let her free if she wants to go.

I agree, we already have one cat, but we're seeing her old owners claim her and if not we might keep her.

I once took in a stray kitten. She was infested with fleas and very undernourished. I fed her as much as she could eat. Gave her a flea bath, dried her off, combed out her fur, and held her until she stopped shivering. She was an itty bit of a thing when I got her. So the name Itty stuck. I only had her for about 4 years. She ran off to chase the mice in a nearby field and never came back. I was glad to have had her in my life and miss her dearly to this day.

Aw, this one's not itty bitty. She keeps curling up on my husband like she already lives here.

@polyxena I guess that she has made herself to home.

@ElusiveButterfly I think she did. We tried putting her back outside and she refused.

I didn't want her to be cold, we're trying to find her home.

What a meaningful name you gave to her... And the cat just came in a right time.

It's how we thought of the name. I wanted to give her a Halloween name, since we found her on Halloween.
