We lost our old cat about four months ago and have been waiting for a cat to come our way. All of our cats have found us, just wandered in and stayed. But no cat has come…so we actively sought. We aren’t particular as-to color, gender, age…just that there be some serendipity involved. Our feelers have been out-there for a few weeks and Sat morning got the call that there was a new cat that needed to be relocated out of the area. Sight unseen, we said: Sure!
So I met the transporter woman at the gas station and now we have this new little guy… Marco.
Here’s a little bit of backstory as-told by the lady who brought him 50 miles to get to us:
“Looks like Marco struck gold! You two are amazing helping this poor guy out! Don’t know if you heard but he wandered up a county road in Vichy then was taken and dumped behind the Kroger grocery store in Rolla but then was somehow returned to the county road in Vichy!”
Here’s hoping he likes it here because we are a long long way from Vichy!
He has a droopy eyelid. He has an abscess on his chest that is healing and he has been neutered. He’s on antibiotics. Is rather friendly and verrrry talkative. We let him out of the crate for a little facetime twice a day for maybe 5 minutes. Today he a) climbed on my lap on the floor and b) curled upside down and invited me to pet his belly, with i did a little bit without getting a hint of him wanting to take claws to me. I think the little guys’ gonna work out fine !!
