But I'm a cat person, I tell you! And he has a face only a mother could love. And seems to have a body that was not meant for that face.
I'm going away at the end of June for over a week. Who would take care of him??
But someone left him off in my friend's neighborhood, and she has two dogs, and a cat . . .
He's staying on her back porch, just until his owner shows up (how likely is that? no collar) because she's canvassed the area with fliers and contacted the local TV lost dog/cat guy, who will announce it. In a down-turning housing market, many have to shift to no-animals-allowed apartments when they lose their houses . . .
But I have two cats! I'm just, well, I'm not sure . . . He doesn't even have a TAIL, for heaven's sake; just a little bit of a thing.
Update: D does not want a dog, and feels very strongly on this issue, so my friend is looking for someone else to adopt this stray (who, it seems, likes to chew on lots and lots of things . . .)
