Anyone know what kind of kitty i found?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 




I brought this little girl inside because the poor think was freezing and meowing it's head off. I thought it was hungry but really i think it was just cold and desperate for attention. She is so affectionate.
I am looking for it's owner now because the way it acts and is so friendly that it must have a home. Her coat is in such nice condition.
I am convinced she is in heat. She keeps rolling around on the ground and meowing, and lifting her butt in the air as if to be in the mating position.

I posted a pic of her on my local towns website and there are 2 people saying it might be there cat. I am trying to make sure she gets to the right home. She is a good girl the only real problem is my 17 year old cat is not to thrilled. They don't seek each other out, but if the get close enough they do hiss, but no swatting or spitting.

She looks like a domestic short hair gray tabby and white - possibly with a classic tabby pattern. Hard to tell that from the photo.

And yes, it does sound like she's in heat!

Good that you brought her in otherwise she would probably get pregnant. She needs to be fixed!!! If you find her home/owners, maybe you can help the owners get her spayed... (how will you know if it's the right people? I guess that cat will let you know, right?)

She's a beautiful DSH - I love her alert face!

Unfortunately posting a pic of her prevents the real owners from identifying any distinguishing marks that will prove ownership. Being such a beautiful cat you may get anyone claiming it. Unless it had a collar on that you can't see in the pic or something else that only the owner will know about. She is very pretty and looks in really good condition so obviously loved by someone. Good luck finding her owners. Maybe if you state she is most likely pregnant, only the real owners will want her. for taking care of her in the mean time.

You guys had some good points. I forgot to mention i did not mention if the cat was male or female. The gut just emailed me and I aksed him if his was male or female he said male and attached a pic. It was not the same cat.
I took your advice and removed the pic from the website, but left the post.

Is it okay if i post a different pic for you guys to see more of what she looks like?

She is very pretty. I hope you find her rightful owners, and mention to them she most likely got out because she is in heat and wanted to find a mate; and a way to prevent her from getting lost again is to get that lovely girl spayed. She is quite a beauty .

Okay sorry to be a pain but i have never done this, i have a few questions.

It's is 10pm here and it's clear i won't find the owner tonight. I cannot leave this cat out in the living room while i am at work tomorrow because i am afraid it will fight with my other cat. Last nite i kept it in the bedroom with with the door closed when i went to bed, she insisted on sleeping in the bed with me....LOL I have food water and a litter box in there, so will she be ok during the day tomorrow while i am at work?
My daughter will come home around 2:30 from school and can check on her and let her out. We let her roam as long as we are here so we can watch the 2 together.
Like i said my other cat is 17 and i have had her since she was 3 months old, and is not that thrilled but doing better than i thought she would.

If i find the owner i will tell them that for sure. At least in my house she can not get pregnant. I will tell you this (But not my hubby) I secretly hope we end up keeping her....LOL

My only real concern is though my other cat and how she will be.
post #12 of 28
As long as she has access to food, water and a litter box she'll be fine. Maybe a toy or two to keep her entertained? But if you're worried about her fighting with your cat, keeping her in a separate room is the best. She'll be fine there.

I'd be secretly hoping the same. She sounds like a doll.

If you do end up keeping her, you might want to take time to read up on proper introductions, if done properly they should learn to tolerate each other, and hopefully become great friends. I'm not familiar with cat introductions, but others on the board are and should be able to help.

I don't post much but i read frequently. I have read on the introductions and hope i have not screwed it up to much by letting them be in the same room already. I mean it eats out of my other cats bowl and uses her litter box even though i have a seperate on for her. My cat still eats and uses the litter box in spite of this. I don't know if thats a good sign or not....LOL.... When she is locked in my room she will have no choice but to use her own...lol
I feel real bad for her when she is yowling and writhing around she seems so uncomfortable. My kitty is fixed.

How long are you planning on looking for the owners before you take action on getting her spayed? Just wondering.

I talked to one shelter, they said to give it a week, they also said if no one claims her they could make arrangemnts to keep her. I really don't wanna put her in a shelter, don't get me wrong i think they do good work, i just don't wanna see her end up there.
I will post flyers in my town tomorrow, without a pic of her.

It kind of depends on my husband and our money, we have to be in agreement on this thats how we work it, ya know? I don't know how long this little girl (I named her Nakita...LOL) has been in heat. She is quiet now but then she gets wound up and starts her yowling...LOL
She is such a friendly little thing and loves attention. My daughter went in the shower and nakita..LOL...was standing up at the door trying to get at her...lol

If you can't tell i am more than excited and a little nervous about having her here. She could use a nail clipping, but i am not sure about doing that at this point.
So yea, maybe a week?

You guys are making it tough on me.....LOL
post #19 of 28
Bless you for taking her in
To me, her large ears, round eyes set at a slant and that boxy muzzle make her look like a short-haired Maine Coon. Her paws look dainty & her legs aren't as stocky, tho. What ever the mixture, it is STUNNING
If she has a good home, I hope that they are reunited. But otherwise, I think that you might be wise in getting a younger cat for your daughter to bind with, since your 17yo cat is in his golden years and when his time comes, she will have her other kitty for comfort.
And it sounds like your cat & the newcomer are doing fine; no major fighting or marking of territory
Please keep us updated. Also, sending prayers and vibes that the man who responded to your ad & sent you a picture of his missing cat is reunited with his beloved pet very soon
BTW, isn't it amazing how cats instinctively know which doorbell to ring

check out this site & see if there's a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in your area: spayUSA

Thank you so much for the link. I will check it out.

Again, I hope you can find the rightful owners and as I said before, help them get her spayed - you know - convince them.

If not hopefully you can afford to keep her. She sounds like a doll. And it sounds like you shouldn't have an issue trimming her nails. It also sounds like your elderly cat is not really having an issue with the newcomer and vice versa. A little hissing is nothing. Keeping her sequestered in your bedroom is also perfectly fine. And I don't think you messed up on the intros because of what I said - there was no serious posturing or aggressive behavior. "Nakita" as you named her, sounds very un-territorial.

Good luck. We are all pulling for you and your little foundling.

Oh what pretty markings! She looks like she really enjoys being around you and even the other cat. Sounds like a pretty easygoing gal! I hope you can keep her or find the owner. It sounds like she'd like to keep you guys for sure!

I have a almost 17 year old cat and she sleeps with my 6 month old kitten all the time.
Try to keep her if you can.
I would hate for her to go to the pound.

Just a little more info on Nakita. I took her to the vet tonight to get her checked for a chip. She does not have one. They also said she is about 10 months old, she has hee big teeth. They took her out of the carrier to scan her and they said she responded to scruffing really well, they also clipped her nails for me. She didn't mind at all....LOL

If you find her owner you could ask them for her name and then ask them to say it if she responds to make sure the person owns her. Also if you find the owner recomend giving it a tattoo or a chip. Very helpful. good luck
