My Stray Cat
I would like to tell you about my stray cat. I found her on the street a long time ago. At the time I was married and we had 2 other cats. Despite that I could not leave her out in the cold. She was pleased to see me and asking for some food. I gave her some food. I left it in the basement area of out house. In fact it was left overs from our other cats. I also left a kettle full of hot water to act a bit like a radiator as the area where I was feeding her was unheated and almost outside.
She wolfed down all the food and the next night I did the same. After that she began to come in to the house. The other cats were OK about this. All three were lined up munching away close to each other.
She ate so much I was unsure if she was pregnant. At one stage I thought I would give her away to a neighbor who was an old lady. But my girl cat was looking pregnant at this stage. She was in fact simply full of food and looking a bit cow-like. This put off my neighbor and the rest is history.
All that was about 16 years ago. When I first saw her she was skinny. After day 2 she was plump and she has never been skinny ever again. I love her more than she will ever know.
