My cat adopted ME!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, my name is Ally, and I just joined this forum to learn more about cats, having just been adopted by one. Yes, I'll explain....

A few months ago, a cat came strolling through our yard. It had a nice clean coat and loked well fed, so we all thought it belonged to a neighbor. Being an animal-lover, I petted her, gave her a rub, and sent her on her way. the next day I saw her again, this time, pawing at my kitchen window. I don't know what got into me, but I pulled out a bowl, filled it with milk, and set it out. (Now i know that milk is a no-no, because it can cause diarrhea). She seemed to love it though and when she was done, she pranced off. The next day she came back again, and again I gave her milk. Same routine. On the fourth day, I went out and bought some cat food, and started putting that out for her instead. That was five months ago. Now, she has practically become a permanent member of the family, and has been named Lollipop. Shes in or around the house all day, and I've built her a little house outside, and given her a scratching post. She gets wet food and dry food on alternating days.

She doesnt have a collar and I know she doesnt go anywhere else because shes with me all day, so I want to adopt her. Thats why I came on here. As a new mother, I've got tons of questions, and Im hoping you guys can help me out!

Welcome Ally!
Good idea to check if lollipop is spayed and if she's not, do the surgery! Or else you may end up being mommy to more "sweets".

Ally...welcome to TCS. Have you taken her to a vet yet?? If not, I highly recommend you do that so that she can be checked over to make sure she doesn't have a microchip AND you can determine whether she has been spayed or not. If she hasn't..she will need to be spayed in order to keep her from having any kittens. It is also healthier for her to be spayed.

Nope, but I'm looking into different vets right now, and I'm hoping I can take her in sometime this week.
