New Cat

We have one. She had belonged to our neighbors. They were neglecting her. She spent many days shut in the shared hallway, with no box, food, water from them.

I began putting food etc out for her, and she was very shy, but crept out to eat it.

This month neighbors moved. They offered her to us. (Husband was delighted-- he wanted to steal her anyway, said they did not deserve such a cat.)

So here she is with us. They did not provide a name. Perhaps she did not have one. Their toddler son seemed to call her something like 'Daisy.' So she is Daisy now.

She spent the first few days hissing and hiding. Now we are able to see her a little more. She is still hand-shy. Food is a big deal for her

Lyra, Yodel and Sabir are curious but accepting. Here is picture:

Daisy is a lucky cat with you! Your husband is right! Such people should not have any pet. Maybe next time you would put the clearer photo of her please? :)

The cat next door has a similar story. Lived a block or two away and I've heard the owners were not only neglectful, they were down right cruel. She, name's Angel, "adopted" the neighbors and moved in. A very loving animal, always ready for a head scratch or a belly rub. Haven't seen her in a while as she's getting old and a bit stove in. But she's in a home and a neighborhood where she is loved.

She's is a fortunate girl, indeed.
