At any rate, we now have a... visitor in the house. A pretty, small white cat with greenish-yellow eyes, that wandered into the yard earlier today, then into the garage and didn't want to seem to leave. It didn't look scruffy per se, but it looked thin, like it might have been out and about on its own for a while. It was also nervous around me, and it constantly meows when someone's around, but after a while it let me coax it close, and then it was totally friendly and rubbing its chin on everything.
I was thinking of just leaving it out in the garage, especially in case it does belong to someone and wanted to wander off again... but it seemed to be staying put, and our neighbor said it was supposed to freeze tonight and "it'd probably freeze to death" and all *guilt guilt* so... I ended up bundling it up in a towel and bringing it inside. What happens after this... I don't know. So far it's just been hiding in a corner under the furniture and meowing whenever anyone comes out to see it. The dog seems curious about it but not aggressive (she's hell on paws on anything small and furry that's an intruder, but she seems to have the idea that if I bring it in and show it to her and obviously think it belongs, then it can stay). My cat, Katana, I'm slightly worried about, because she was kinda creeping close and hissing at it, but now she's hanging out in another room. And this sucks, because my sleep schedule still isn't straightened out and I'm getting tired, but I'm worried about just leaving them all three alone down here, totally unsupervised. -_-
And yeah, I also ended up getting scratched a bit, not out of malice, but from the cat flailing a bit from getting carried, which it doesn't seem to like/be used to. So here's hoping it's not like totally rabid (despite not seeming like it) and that I don't get sick and die or something. Meh. -_-
But what can ya do?
