cat napper

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I guess I did a catnapping yesterdy, I am still not sure. I was leaving work to go to lunch yesterday, and caught some teenage boys beating and kicking cat, and it was screaming in pain, pooping itself from fright. I actually intended to give it a chance to get away, but it came running to me for protection, and got in the car with me. One of the boys that was not participating, just watching, said it had been left behind and was walking on someone's car and getting in their trash. It got right in the car with me and politely sat in the back window. I took it home, fed it, and it is now living in my back yard, safe and fed. I was worried it would run away overnight, but I cannot risk bringing it in. I say "it" because I am not sure if it is male or female yet. I have to rehome it, but I am going to fatten it up a little first.
I hesitate to put up flyers because of the condition the poor thing was in, I am fairly certain is was abandoned, but I guess I am still a catnapper, and would do it again.
It looks like a "she" to me, so guess I will call her she until I find out otherwise. She is so sweet, it is obvious that she had been a pet. She loves tummy rubs and giving hedbutts. She is pure white and looks very much like my Pearl. She seems happy just to be away from the parking lot and to have food she does not have to fight for. She is so grateful ans wants me to hold her. I have to get out there later on this lovely warm day and clean her up a little. She is stinky from pooping herself during her beating. She has a few bruises and missing a little hair, but does not seem to be really injured. It was so gratifying to see her running around playing in the yard. I am going to take her some toys out later. Please send me good vibes to find this sweet girl a good home where she will be loved and cherished they way such a sweet kitty should be. I am hoping to find an elderly person that needs a good companion, I think she would fit well in a situation like that, she is very laid back and mellow.

I went out to feed her this morning and got a little peek, I think it is a neutered male. I fed him, spent some time outside with him this morning, and cleaned him a little. He still had dried poop. I think he may have been too frightened to do much yesterday, but chased away a tabby that has a home down the street for trying to take his food. He climbed in my lap for petting, and he let me examine him a little closer. Besides being very skinny, he seems ok. I am going to try to get some help from some of the local rescues to get him vetted. We are having some financial issues due to my sudden poor health, but I will find a way to at least get him tested for diseases.

You're not a catnapper--I got Baby Girl the same way; my neighbors were neglecting her and I took care of her for over a month; then they finally said I could have her since she was at my house most of the time, and then they moved away.

You saw a neglected cat and took it in. And on top of that, the boy said the cat was abandoned.

Watch that kitty close--just in case he has injuries you don't know about. And pet him a lot, so you know if he's sore anywhere (he won't mind, I'm sure)!

You're not a cat-napper...you're a hero! I personally would have been tempted to give those boys a sample of what they were dishing out!

You did the right thing - save the cat!!! I truly fear for anyone who lives near those brutes, whether they be cat or child or puppy The cat is definitely better off with you. Sending plenty of vibes that local rescues assist you

He is doing well. He is picking up a little weight, and is content to be in the yard. I have put ot some feelers to find hm a home. He is just as sweet as can be. He climbed up in my lap last night, and I think he is declawed. That made me so mad I could scream. He is a loving little thing, I spend a few minutes with him before I go to work, and feed him some wet food when I get home. He desperately wants someone to love him. He gives hugs and headbutts when he is allowed. I would love to keep him, but every time I get more that 4 cats, something terrible happens to one of them, and end up with 4 cats and a broken heart.
Please send out some vibes for this sweet little boy to find a great home.

I too cat napped and saved a cat that was being kicked around! What is it with some kids?!?! Princess aka "Prissy" was only about 10 weeks old when I got her. She is a gorgeous Tortie Point, but she doesn't have siamese features. Prissy's tummy was sensitive for a few days, but otherwise so affectionate, that I still can't believe people would hurt her. I've been trying to catch her littermate as she/he is a stray, but too scared to let me near. I think rescuing a cat like that is quite rewarding. Problem though, I ending up adding her to my house so I now have 2 adult females (Friskie and Keeka) a 7lb 5 month old male(Oreo,Keeka's only kitten) and 5 1/2 month old female (Prissy) and 6 4 week old kittens(Friskies- all males except one) That's 5 too many.....

You're a true cat hero!!!!!

Keep us posted as you look for a home for him. I'm secretly hoping you keep him and discover that 5 isn't a bad-luck number for you any more.

You did the right thing in getting the cat out of harm's way AND I would have called the cops on those kids. Animal abuse IS A CRIME!! And kids/teens who don't hesitate to beat up a helpless animal also move on to bigger and worse things -like people.

They were just a bunch of hoodlums!

I still have him and the others have insisted upon going outside and playing with him. They chase each other around the yard, and 3 of them dug a hole, filled it with leaves, and were cuddled up sleeping in it yesterday. I made him up a nice bed, and he has acces to the laundry room if it gets too cold. I still really want him to have a home of his own. Even though he loves other cats, he also loves to be held and give headbutts, so a home maybe with just 1 other cat would be good. He stays here until her gets a home of his own, though.
