This cat. Oh my god.
She looks like a possum. She has these huge red eyes, they're kind of scary to be honest. She meows loudly and repeatedly when someone walks in and bumbles around in circles trying to find us. And then when she does find us she presses up on us and continues to yell until you pick her up and hold her to your chest, and sometimes she won't stop yelling until you're yelling back so she can hear you. And then finally she feels safe and just buries her face into you and purrs.
I am in love.
I named her Maiko. We're taking her to the vet next paycheck to have her checked for contagious feline diseases, neurological issues, and chips. Of course I'm going to give her back if we find an owner, I would never keep someone else's pet--especially a cat as sweet as this one. I wouldn't be surprised if she was epileptic, just given the obvious issues she has, but! fortunately I have a year and a half's worth of experience with my epileptic chihuahua.
I just...don't have the words to explain how overwhelmingly beautiful this cat is. She's obviously suffered and I can see the precious creature making her way through all the hardship in this world. She's like Don Bluth's Anastasia. I cried when I met her. My arms were full of her and I couldn't put her down.
We're not doing great financially right now, which is why I said "no more animals", but I'm going to give her the best I possibly can. If she has a lot of bad conditions and won't live but a few years, those few years will be nothing short of luxurious.
edit: wow I went to sleep for a few hours and this has blown up! sorry for not getting back to yall sooner. I'm going to be working on a house today so I won't have much time to respond, but I'm glad yall care about this kitty as much as I do. 💙
edit 2: small pet tax:) I'm using a tablet camera and for some reason it was zoomed way in and wouldn't zoom out. this is just how my life goes. I have a video I'll upload in a while when we get home and hopefully the internet isn't being slow as hell.
a few updates: when we brought her home last night, we thought she was a kitten because she's so small, but looking at her this morning we realized she might actually be... keep reading on reddit ➡
Want to pick up a copy of smashing pumpkins siamese dream as a christmas gift for my dad. I am in Canada, sealed or not sealed isn’t really important, thanks!
Hi all, I live in 80909, and found a very friendly cat on my way out of my apartment this morning. Jumped right into my car, no collar, not neutered. Looks 2-5 years old, medium size cat. If you or anyone you know is the owner of this kitty, I'm very invested in returning him to his home. If you can provide pics of your lost cat, we can exchange numbers and see if it's your kitty!
