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.
