I rescued a Burmese cat
I found Tinky in the bushes in my front yard. She was crying terribly. I had never seen anything like her before and I was not even sure she was a cat! Very small, only 5 pounds at most.
When I finally got the courage to pick her up in my arms, she started kissing my nose, over and over and over. My friend told me she was probably a valuable cat who got lost, so I intentionally did not bond with her.
I put an ad in the paper, called every shelter and every vet in the area. No one claimed her! Finally I decided that she was mine. We’ve never looked back.
She’s such a special cat, tons of personality. She is still tiny and we love her, as do our other cats.
Hi.. thanks for sharing. As you can see I have changed the title because it should generate more interest. I have made the presumption, I hope sensibly, that you have rescued a cat that might be a Burmese as your post is under that heading.
Thanks for visiting and sharing. If you have a picture you might like to upload it using the same form.
You might be a little anxious about the possibility of the former “owner” coming forward and claiming ownership. I don’t think that is viable. If a person did come forward I would resist handing Tinky back for Tinky’s sake as she is clearly extremely happy living with you.
I am sure you have a natural affinity for cats and cats recognize it. They recognise a safe person when they smell one!
Tinky being immediately very friendly towards you indicates that.
