I had to take the bus to work today and low and behold I made a friend at the bus stop this morning. I was just standing there freezing my hinny off waiting for the bus in the dark when I hear this crunching. In the bushes next to me is this young looking orange cat (let's call him Picasso because he had beautiful swirls on his coat). He sees me and freezes and I crouch and whistle him over. He was very timid at first, then he became so affectionate - he wanted snuggles and loving! he wouldn't leave me alone. He had no collar and was kind of skinny, but had a thick gorgeous coat so I don't know if he was a stray or just a house cat on the prowl. I tried to tell him to stay away from the road but he kept walking out on it. I gave him the meat from my sandwich ( he looked hungry) and then the bus came and scared him away (althought the driver did see him and ask if he was my cat). I am going to look for him tonight to make sure he is ok and if need be put up posters in the neighbourhood if he is a stray - I'll take him home and keep him in the spare room if I have to. i hope he is in someone's house!
