I'm trying to talk myself out of this, but we have a stray kitty bound and determined to adopt us. My husband found a cat in our yard that looked really skinny. He gave it food, and it downed 2 bowls. He/she was of course back today. It's very friendly, rubbing up against you. We have both picked it up and it's purring. It seems to want to come inside as it stands at our door. He/she seems healthy except for being too skinny. I think it's young, but not a kitten (not pregnant by the looks of it). My husband has been doing yard work and the cat has been around him all day. We live in the country in an old farmhouse.
We have 2 older cats now. We aren't really looking for a new cat. The cats are 8 and 11. The 11 year old cat's health is fading, so I'm not sure if this could be too big of a stress. He may know the stray already as he sometimes goes out. (when he's not supposed to). We also have a husky, but she's great with the cats. Lots to think about. It seems like a great little cat. We talked about taking it to the humane society, but I don't know if that's the best option. Anyone know anything about taking in a stray or what we can do for the cat?
