I was walking home from work this evening, and I walk underneath a highway. There was a box lying there on the curbside, and as I walked past it, it started to meow. Of course, there was no way I could just leave it there, its a suprisinly hot day today here in Portland, besides, it just didn't feel like the right thing to do.
So I picked up the box and brought it home. Of course this was purely impulsive, based on my reaction, that I couldn't leave the kitty there. I hadn't thought much of it through. I knew I couldn't keep it in the house, as I have 2 cats, and until this fella has been to the vets, I don't want to risk it. So he/she is out on the balcony, with some food water, and a cat carrier, should it choose to sleep.
Its a hot day, so I think it should be OK there this evening, but I am a little concerned. Of course the animal shelter for my area is only open from 10 till 6, so I missed out on that for the day.
I just don't understand how people can do this, I feel so bad for the poor cat, but at least he has food and water for one night, I just don't know what will happen to it after today, but I can't take it in. I already as I say, have 2.
Once I got home, I also started to worry what the wbf would say about it. I don't feel like I had an option, but I wasn't sure what his opinion on the matter would be. Luckily, when I spoke to him on the phone, he was OK about it. We'll see what conversation we have when he gets home.
