View Full Version : I have a visitor

I have a visitor…

Whilst out cycling tonight, the Unfit Family was pootling along the quiet lanes
of Norfolk when "Meeeeow!!" It ran out from the side of the road. A black and
white cat. We are in the middle of relative nowhere. This is an adult cat which
is very friendly. There are no houses about. "Meeeow!!! PPPPUUURRR!!!" This is
one friendly cat, but what is it doing out here? A feral/farm cat would not be
quite so affectionate with a total stranger. "Meeeeowww!" This large
short-haired black & white, yellow-eyed cat looks up at me, meows and I see it
has something wrong with its mouth. Possibly some sort of ulcer or other gum
problem. "Meeeeeow!" A car goes by - it runs back into the undergrowth. When
the car has gone it comes out again. "MMMEEEOWWW!"

To cut a long story short, I now have an overnight visitor in the library. One
which has now been sprayed with Frontline and one which has also wolfed down
two full pouches of catfood.

I've rung PACT. Tomorrow I take the cat to the vet to be blood tested and to go
to PACT. I've done some notices to go into local shops/vets to say a cat has
been found, in an attempt to trace an owner - it may just be a cat that's
wandered a bit too far from home and ended up in the middle of the countryside.

So nice of you to take the visitor in. I do hope the ulcer turns out to be a
minor problem.

Thanks Karen. The jaw isn't stopping the cat from eating - it's demolished what
I've put down for it!

Good luck in finding the owner or at least a good home - he was indeed
fortunate that it was you who came across him - best wishes for all to go
well with the vet visit.

Awwww, sounds like a pretty little critter! And one in need of a human
companion.

Persia did much the same thing before I adopted her. Appeared on my patio,
meowwwwww at my back door. Refused to be shooed away. Calls to area
shelters and vets netted no reports of a lost cat. Fliers posted all
around - zilch. She's now my faithful, loving companion.

Sounds like a stray who has trained himself to eat to full capacity when
food is available, because he can't be sure when he'll encounter more.
My Patches was like that when he first came to me - he'd empty his own
bowl, then polish off whatever Miu had left of his for later snacking.
(But it's astonishing how quickly an ex-stray learns to be fussy, once
it realizes there'll always be a next meal!)

Bless you, Helen, for taking him in and caring for him until you determine
if he has an owner. He is a very fortunate little guy to have you find him.
Somehow kitties know when they find a kind hoomin. If he doesn't have an
owner, I kind of hope that he can stay with you and yours. OK, don't start
throwing those food pouches at me, :-))

Right you are! Back when I was luring my mostly white, black and white
tom inside so I could capture him and take him in to be checked and
neutered, he'd eat a full can of Friskies, and then move on to the dry
food. Now that he's become my Rocky (or more correctly, I've become
his human), he turns up his nose at Friskies, and only eats small
portions, expecting me to give him more when he wants it. He's still
uncomfortable inside, so eats outside - which creates a problem, as I
don't want the strays I feed to decide they also should be eating
better ;-)

F&N applaud your kindness in taking care of the little tyke, but Frank
especially hopes you find other lodgings for him soonest. He doesn't want no
strangers hanging around his ladycat. And a black and white one, at that!

Purrs that he is (re)homed soon.

Awww, poor little fellow. We are sending purrs that this is just an
Otis-type situation, and that his meowmie/paw turns up first thing
tomorrow. :-)

In the meantime, wasn't he lucky to have found you? You must have
been wearing your "sucker" sign. :-D

That's so sweet that you rescued this cat. I hope he belongs to someone
and they're found ASAP!

But enquiring minds want to know: how did you get this cat home on your
bicycle??

Found!!!

This morning I went on "owner hunt". I called into lots of places in the
surrounding villages. The cat is called "Tetley" and he belongs to the people
who have a small post office in one of the villages. Tetley had been gone 2
months and they were very, very pleased to see him.

Cheers, helen s

Presumably PACT will be able to scan for a microchip, I hope the cat is home

Wow, that is so wonderful....after two months, they must have been
heartbroken, and despairing of ever seeing him again! We should all hope
that if our kitty gets lost, they find a good samaritan like you to take
them in and help them find their way home. :)

2 months! Wow! If it was that long I wonder if he was working his way
home deliberately from far away or just lost wandering around. If he was
at a post office I guess it would have been easy to stow away on a truck.

Woohoo!! That's wonderful, Helen. Tetley is such a great name for a
cat; tea and cats, for some reason they work together. I'm glad he's
got his slaves back.

I agree....maybe because tea is something you often drink while settling
back to relax, and nothing is more relaxed and mellow than a cat in its
element. And I can't think of many things more relaxing that sitting down
with a cup of tea and a cuddly cat curled up in your lap. :)

(Not to mention that our cats like taking crafty sips of their dad's tea
whenever possible....) ;)

Wow, this boy really *wanted* to be rescued, to wait with you while
Vernon went home and came back!

I'm so happy you found his people! They must be so relieved, not to
mention surprised - I'll bet that after two months, they must have
started to give up.

WooHoo! Two months?!? I bet they were *thrilled* beyond telling to
see him! Good work, Helen!
