We don’t have a washer and dryer at our house, so I often go to a friend’s house to do laundry. Her neighbour’s have this cat that they leave outside all day, even in the depths of winter, and I’m pretty sure she’s neglected. Every time she’s outside when I stop by, she runs to me and jumps on my lap or my shoulders and purrs and purrs, and I feel awful for her. So when I saw her today, I brought her a can of wet cat food, and she was so happy!
If the poor thing didn’t legitimately belong to someone, I would have brought her home already. She’s really fluffy, but she’s clearly been in a few fights (missing parts of her ear) and if you feel her, you can feel ribs underneath all the fur. There’s not a lot of meat on her.
