I pulled into Wal-Mart yesterday, and there was the most pitiful looking yellow tabby lying between 2 cars. He was all greasy and dirty, but he was chubby, like he had been a pet that someone had thrown out. He sure didn't look like he was used to fending for himself. I put some food down for him, and talked to him for a few minutes. He let me scratch his head, then he put a few feet between us and meowed at me like he had something to say. I went back last night, and he was still in the same spot, which led me to believe he was waiting for someone to come back for him. I fed him again, and he hung out with me for a few minutes. He was in the same spot today, so I got permission to put down a humane trap for him. I went to Petsmart to try to find out about a trap. The rescue lady asked me if it was a yellow tabby. She said he has been living in the parking lot for over a year, and all the Wal-mart employees feed him, and a lot of the customers. He has bitten 8 people! They even got a professional trapper to try to catch him, and couldn't. There was an article in yesterday's paper about him, because he had bitten a pet rescue worker. I guess he will be fine. Apparently everybody in town feeds stray cats. I guess it could be worse!
