There are two stray cats at the nursing home. We are not allowed to feed them but the residents take them a bit of food and so does our maintance guy. Well last night I was taking my residents out to smoke and the cat meowed at me and I talked to him and he came up to me and rubbed up against my legs and I petted him. And his coat is so dry its just awful. And he is very thin. I am afraid to call the shelter cause this is my job. And cause its kitten season and they would just put him to sleep. I asked my dad if I could try and catch him and bring him home after taking to the vet. And he said no that there I didn't need but my one cat. He loves her but he thinks a second kitty would ruin her. I just feel so bad for this kitty. He isn't very old I don't think. I just wish dad would let me bring him home. I know if he will let me pet him and being outside like that I could tame him down. Only trouble is there are no doors in the house to seperate him from my dog or Tavia while he was adjusting. I just don't know what to do for him. I am not even allowed to give him part of my lunch at work. They list it as grounds for termination. Because they say it will attract other things like possums and such. I just feel helpless and he is so pretty. He is a smokey grey and he has white on his chin and belly.
