Q: so we need to talk
Q: neal just opened the door
and a teeny tiny kitten walked in
Me: i was on the moon with steve
Q: I have no idea how he got in the building
Q: but he's very tiny, and he walked in the door, and neal gave it food
Me: well maybe no
Q: and you SAID you want to adopt a street cat
and I can't put it back on the street now
he showed up at the door!
Me: well....shit.Oh yes you could you bugger
Q: I can take him to the free vet in fes tommorrow
no, I can't
I'd like to see YOU put this thing back on the street, it fits in your palm
Me: he will want to go ourside and he will get fleas or get eaten or fall off the terrace
Q: the vet may say he has something wrong so he'll die anyway
but I should at least check
so you don't let him outside....duh
Me: can you take him tomorrow?
is it a he?
Q: we never let the other cats outside
yeah, I'm going to
I'm not sure, I think so
Me: well turn him over and Look
Q: I'm not sure what to feed him, he's quite tiny, may have escaped from one of the guys who steals kittens from the mom
Q: yeah, it's not good for him but it'll do for now
Me: that pasturized stuff might be good, lots of fatty
Q: yeah but milk isn't good for them long term, I'll ask the vet if there is any formula
and google it I guess
Me: and exactly WHY are Neal and Caroline not keeping him? since they let him in?
I haven't even SEEN a litter box or litter anywhere in this country you know...
what will you carry him in?
Q: because they are leaving in 10 days
and the cat won't be healthy or big enough to take by then, and caroline is allergic
I'll buy a box and marjane tommorrow I guess...have to find something
I think it's a girl
could be that the testes haven't descended yet though
Me: before you do anything take it to the vet. A girl!
females are trouble, but they don't spray...
I am making no decision yet. You take it to the vet and then I will decide.
I guess the worst thing that could happen is that it lives on the roof and I have to spend time gathering up shite!
Q: yeah, I imagine it needs to be defleaed and ear-dropped
I imagine it needs flea dipping, ear drops, and deworming
Q: so we need to go and eat
Me: you can't help it I think
aim me tomorrow then
Q: but if you were waiting for one to show up...
it showed up
Me: hard to argue with that logic
I am a bastion of firmness am I not? This is how the past three cats entered my life! I am only pleased she doesn't bring home reptiles....anymore. Morocco is lousey with cats as the Phophet was said to be fond of them. I have not noticed them so much here in Rabat, but in Fez they are constantly underfoot and for the most part are well fed and surviving. I have no idea if I can find a litter box anywhere, much less litter! Now I have something to do tomorrow, eh?
