I Have A New Companion!
So, it would seem that I now have a new cat. O.o Found this little gray tabby kitty in the ally way outside of my work. She looks fairly young… probably under a year old. I was taking the trash out, and she followed me back to the clinic from the back fence, and I made the mistake of paying attention to her. O.o She spent the next two hours mewing at the back door, and every time a client tried to go in or out the door, she tried to run inside. Three clients picked her up and brought her in, asking if she was ours (cos I work at a Cat Clinic) and we said no, so they just put her back outside. But she wouldn't go away, so we finally brought her in, hoping it would keep her quiet.

I felt bad for her being out there, because it was pouring rain and all icky cold and windy out. One of the staff told me to just put her back out after closing, because she probably belonged to someone if she was that friendly, and that she'd probably find her way back home on her own. Course, as far as I‘m concerned, if she does belong to anyone, they don't really deserve to have her back. >.< But I was gonna wait until it stopped raining and then put her back out in the ally, and just go home, because I mean, we already have like 40 cats at home. X.x We don’t really need anymore. My mom does rescue work, and people dump animals on us all of the time because my mom just doesn't have the heart to say no. We get threats of, "Well if you don't take them, we'll put them to sleep, or just throw them out on the street, and my mom can't deal with that.

So yeah... I didn't WANT to bring another cat home, especially since I always tell my mom to say no to any more... So I tried dropping her off and walking away...but she just followed me. She wouldn’t go away, and I was afraid of her trying to follow me into the general direction of traffic. So, I just grabbed a carrier from work, and stuck her in and took her home. *shrugs* She's currently in my bathroom with a litter box, and food and water. She went straight to the food bowl. >.< And I also put some drops of Revolution on her, cos she had flea dirt on her. So... she's just going to stay in my bathroom for a day, until the fleas are gone, before we let her out with the rest of the group.

Damn, I'm getting just as bad as my mom... But I couldn't just leave her out there... she was so sweet, and I was afraid of coming back to work the next day and seeing her dead by the side of the road, or something. :/ So yeah. More kitties… in fact she’s the fourth new one in just under two weeks. When I move out, I am NOT having a cat. Nope. Just my two dogs, and that’s it! Hell, I don’t think 2 would let me keep a cat anyway, since I had to argue with him about keeping my dogs. ;) 1 The Momma Gryph is apparently just as bad as my mom for collecting cats. :-P Okay well... she has like twenty less than we do, but still, I think it’s rather funny. ^^ I will be surrounded by cats no matter where I go!

Hrmmm... that would make an interesting picture... *goes off to doodle*

Yay for kitties. But boo for having TOO MANY OF 'EM! XD Yeah.. I don't think I'd have the heart to leave her out like that either.
Don't worry, there isn't anything wrong, and 2 probably would try to kill the cat (If you somehow brought one home) because it was too cute or something. XD

Pshhh... 2 wouldn't try to kill any of MY pets, or he'd be in a heap of trouble. ;) I'm tempted to get a bunny, JUST to make him crazy. *TOOTHY GRINS!*

I don’t think 2 would do anything to harm your pets even if he really didn’t like them. He would probably just glare at them a lot. I don’t think there are many people out there in the fandom that realize what a nice guy 2 really is. He tries so hard to cover it up.
I saw the cutest completely black bunny at a fair a little while ago.
I wanted to take it home... but I can't have pets and I want to move down to the cube anyway. That would just complicate things and that just wouldn’t be fair to the poor thing.
The problem with bunnies is... their cages smell... all the time.

That does explain 2's reaction to the local cats when I was down there.

While walking around after dark
2 : *noticing a cat hiding by a dumpster* Damn vermin.
Me: Huh?
2 : Cats, the damn things are everywhere. fucking vermin.
Me: *prolonged silence*
2 : *suddenly realizing the silence* um, what species is your character anyway?
Me: a cat.
2 : ...

I honestly couldn’t tell if I should laugh or not.
I guess you would have had to be there to get why I found it funny.

*LOL* I know. ;) But well, they are kinda becomming vermin... people are irresponsible... and let them out, and they breed, and breeed, and breeeed! And there are SO many strays here in the city. It's getting really bad. X.x Honestly, there is no real solution other than just capturing them all and having them spay/neutered, or just having them put to sleep, because they're getting out of control. >.

Personally, I think people should be held accountable for what happens to their pets.
If someone has 5 cats, and those cats breed and they end up with 15... they should be held legally responsible for those cats.
If they decide to put the kittens in a box and leave them on the side of the road... then they need to be beaten repeatedly about the head and shoulders until either they get a clue or expire from severe bodily trauma.

There were a lot of cats around the cube as I recall. A lot of stupid kids too (I prefer the cats).
There aren’t that many homeless “stray” animals around here, with the exception of the ones that tourists drop off.
Every cat I see wondering the back roads at night I know exactly who the owner is.
Stray cats that don’t have a home to hide in generally don’t live long. With several kinds of weasels, a couple kinds of coyotes, bears, wolves, and various other predators, sooner or later something will eat it.

I can almost picture 2 doing that.
You walk out on the porch and see the gryphon with a kitty tail sticking out between his beak slowly twitching back and forth. He turns to see you glare at him and gives you a muffled “what?” .

Now THAT is a funny mental image. Hehehe... almost makes me want to draw that. (I have an odd sense of humor)
That and I keep picturing you like the pied piper, only instead of rats your being followed by a virtual sea of cats.

Oh, I agree. I HATE irresponsible owners. Every owner who ditches their pet on the street should be hit by a bus. It's always the animals who suffer, and it's not their fault people are stupid. :/

Aww kitty! ^_^

Hey, been a while since you've been on aim. You should get on, talk once in a while. :P
