We have a surprise!


Update:
The earliest vet appointment was 4 pm tomorrow, so that's when I will take her.
Meantime, she is the happiest little cat. She found a toy and spends hours rolling over and over playing with it. When she is not playing, she is growling at herself in the mirror -- she is still quarantined to the bathroom -- or sleeping in a little ball on our makeshift "bed" on the floor.

**********

I would have posted earlier, but have one of the worst migraines ever. Those things waste so much of my time!

OK, I can't wait, here are the first photos of her.
Monday night (01/30/2012) was the first time I saw her.
I believe she was someone's cat because she is so affectionate and loving.
Went to feed her outside tonight, she was sitting in the porch rocking chair. She turned and let me pick her up! She puts her paws around my neck and her head on my shoulder.

I would guess she is about 5-6 months old. She is very thin. My neighbor Joycey and I were outside watching her Tuesday evening. We both think she may be going into heat. There were two very persistent tom cats here all night Tuesday. This little cat kept coming up and "knocking" on my front door. I couldn't get her to come in, she'd run off.

I'm keeping her isolated from the rest of the cats until we see the vet.
We... she and I... are spending the night in the bathroom.
These first photos were taken with her in her second favorite spot, the toilet top.
Her first favorite place is on a bed on the floor in the bathroom. She sleeps beside me with her head on the pillow. 

I don't have a name, just calling her Baby Cat.
We'll be posting more after we see Dr. Smith.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Oh, my goodness, isn't she lovely? What a gorgeous young ladycat.

Will you try to find her a forever home, presumably after spaying?

We're so glad you took her in!

Purrs for your migraine to stay away. Our human has had them and yes, they waste so much time because you just can't function.

The Island Cats said...

She's so pretty!! And we're so glad you brought her inside!

The first heat reminds me of Ashlyn. Her original humans put her in a cage when she went into her first heat. We adopted her and took her home and about 4 months later Frostin was born.

Baby Cat is an absolute beauty ... it looks like she has some meezer in her with the blue eyes and big ears! And we sure are glad she picked the right home to show up at :)
Purrs and headbutts,

Mariodacat said...

OMC - the fact that she is so very loving tells all of us she for sure was someone's loving pet. I will never understand how some people can give them up or not have any ID on them in case they wander off. So happy she came to your house. Hope your mega headaches go away - they are no fun.

Hannah and Lucy said...

What a cute surprise on your door step! We love how she knew you would look after her. We hope your headache goes away soon.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Kat's Kats said...

What a beauty!! She looks just like our MIA Sir Thomas of Snuggle!! Maybe you could call her Thomasina?

PS I get migraines too... which is why there are two migraine graphics in this section. Yesterday I liked the big stick one. ::nods firmly::

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

What a beautiful little kitty. She looks sweet.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Hahaha. She knew whose door to knock on.

She's a pretty kitty. Sure hope she is healthy and the other kitties will like her.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Oh my gosh! I am so glad that Baby Cat found you as I know you will take such good care of her. This reminds me so much of my story when I found my folks here. I was about the same age and as you can see by the photos of Baby Cat that she is in need of some food! I am glad that she is getting used to you and letting you help her. Please keep up posted on the vet visit and more photos of this cutie!!! You are the bestest of the best ML!!!

meowmeowmans said...

OH! She is so adorable. And SMART, too ... she knew just where to go to find those who would love her. :)

Purrs and prayers that the migraine goes far, far away (pronto!).

She's a pretty girl! And lucky too. Hi from Pisi and Squeak.

Ginger Jasper said...

How very very beautiful. Look at the beautiful markings. I think that little girl knew just where to come when she needed help, right were she would get some love.. HUgs GJ xx

Cat said...

Oh my gosh, Baby Cat is a beauty!!! She is very lucky to have found you because you will take good care of her :-) Isn't it adorable when cats give hugs!!!

Marg said...

Ok, do we need to do an auction for ML to help pay for the spaying of Baby Girl. I know who to contact. Take care.

The Lee County Clowder said...

She's gorgeous. Such a sweetie.

We wonder if she wandered off from someone's home.

KC and The Sherwood Bunch said...

Yes, I figure she was someone's kitty. She is too tame and sweet to be a feral.

It's around the 1st of the month I first saw her, maybe someone moved out and left her behind.

There is a large neighborhood behind my place and I drove by this morning to see if there were any missing posters for her. I will look every day.

She may be chipped, we'll find out about that at her vet appointment tomorrow.
Love & Purrs,
Mom ML & The Curious Sherwood Kitties

Ikaika said...

She's a beauty! The human says she looks to be somewhere between 5 - 7 months old, but she may just be a small kitty. I say she'll let you know her name and age when she's ready. That's how we kitties are.

Gentle purrs and healing energy for ML's migraine.

The Royals and Gentleman Beau said...

What a beautiful Baby!!
I have a strong feeling she chose you as her forever Momma...like the rest of your brood!

I'd like to think it was a heartbreak for whoever thought dropping her off to fend for herself was the best option...*grrrr*...she must have known affection and been handled regularly.
Hope news is good at Dr. Smith's tomorrow.

pee ess...We have to ramp up the Migraine-Banning Prayers for you...wish we could do more...love you!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

She's a beauty! We just love her shadow stripes.

Hope your migraine is over . . . for good. Sending healing purrs.

Oui Oui said...

What a lovely girl! I guess she's part meezer and tabby. She is just a sweetheart! She's so lucky to have found you. We hope your migraine is better, our mom gets them too, and they sure are no fun.

Cory said...

OMC!! She is absolutely adorable and precious and we just want to surround her with purrrs.
