Two weeks ago, my hubby was outside when he suddenly walked back into the house, grabbed a bowl of cat food, and told me he found a female stray "siamese cat" strolling along our back cement walkway. He said to me, "She came right up to me. You gotta see this!"
So by the time I got into the back enclosed porch, she had already made her way on her own into our house. The first thing I noticed was that she had no collar or ID on her, and she had obviously been spayed. We then asked around the neighborhood to try to find her guardian(s) in the event that she had accidently gotten out, but to no avail. We kept her in the enclosed porch for a couple of more days until her owner finally showed up at our house asking about her. She told us that one of the neighbors had mentioned that we have cats and should ask us if we had seen her. She also said that she was going to take the cat to her boyfriend's house to live with him because she keeps getting out of the house. She named the cat, are you ready for this one?, "Fancy Pants!" Poor cat!!
Anyway, after that we (reluctantly, mind you) gave the woman back the cat and thought that we'd seen and heard the end of everything. This morning while I was on my way out the back door, who do I see only a week later? Yup, you guessed it, Fancy Pants. Believe me, the last thing I want to do is hand her back over to someone who is so obviously an undeserving, irresponsible owner, but I don't see any way we could keep her without her owner, who lives only a couple of houses away from us, finding out!
She is so, so friendly and so very sweet. I honestly do not want to see her get hit by a car or anything on our extremely busy and dangerous highway we live next to! That being said, we now have little choice but await her idiot owner showing up at our doorstep to, once again, pick her up. Seriously, I could slap this woman silly!!!
