my shop. I didn't make it of course, but it is vintage.
Yesterday was a decent enough day. It had its disappointing moments when I realized that the last day of the three day pass was done and we had gone no where. J hadn't planned a thing. Not even a gift. Oh well.
My heart is breaking today. Not because of yesterday. No it's because of what I saw on the way to the mail box today.
I thought my eyes were deceiving me. But no. I saw true. It was a scrawny orange and buff colored cat curled up in a ball up against a neighbor's house. The right eye was puffed up like it had been in a fight. The two neighbors in that area have cats and I thought perhaps it might have escaped. I knocked on door and rang the bells. I heard movement within that was definitely human but none came to the door. How rude!
Soon a van pulled up, just as I was getting closer to the kitty. Yes, I was willing to take the cat in even if J is allergic to them. I can't let a helpless creature just go uncared for like this one obviously was. Well the van scared it across the street. I chatted with the driver of the van. Turns out her friend is feeding the cat occasionally and it is a stray. Think I might just go buy some cat food this week to have on hand for the animal, treats or even a can of tuna. Maybe someone will take it in. I know I would if I could coax it indoors. Tuna is a great way to coax most cats indoors as I've learned in the past.
I want to get that cat to the vet for some attention too. But I'm not going to sit outside all day and wait. I have nothing to feed it right now.
If you are going to get an animal remember it's a lifetime commitment. You brought it willingly into your home when you got it from the liter, shelter, or pet store. I'm pissed at whomever decided to just dispose of their animal. Makes me want to cry. If you can't take care of your pet it is not disposable. Find it a home!
