Yesterday I was at work (grumble, grumble) and someone came to our drive thru. Over the headsets we kept hearing "mew, mew mew" so we looked out the back door and asked the person in the truck if he had a cat in his truck. He said no and turned off his truck, and got out. well, this little calico cat came out from UNDER the hood of his truck! He'd been driving for god knows how long with it under there. Poor little thing. Looked barely 10 weeks old and skinny as a rail. She was friendly and let us pick her up, so we asked him if she was his or if he know anyone who might own her. He said no and that he didn't want a cat so we ( bad bad people that we were) took her in the restaurant. She was SOO cute. A co worker called someone she knew that was looking for a cat told him about her and he said that he'd be right over. In the mean time, I fell in LOVE ! Oh she was just so lovey and vocal and precious! I told him when he saw her that if he didn't want her, she had a home with me, no questions asked. But he took her because he said she was adorable. ( she really was but I wanted her! ) Oh well, at least she has a good home now and isn't going to be under the hood of a truck anymore looking for warmth. To top it off, she has a playmate they just got a day earlier and when they were introduced, they became instant friends, no hissing or anything. SO Tuesday the go to the vets and get shots, and tested for diseases and stuff. Couldn't ask for a happier ending to a scary story.
