I heard mewing this morning while I was blogging – loud, plaintive mewing coming from the area beside the porch. I went out to investigate and after searching found this little one hiding in amongst the plants. Just a baby…we’re unsure what to do…any ideas? We placed some water, milk and wet dog food out because she was so hungry. (We’ll definitely go buy some kitten food.) She’s very skittish and won’t come to us. But she is definitely hanging around.
We can’t take her in because Scout hates cats – and I am allergic. Should we try to catch her and take her to a shelter? I’m afraid for her out here in the country with no protection. She’s about 5 or 6 inches long – I have no idea what age that indicates.
Don said maybe she’ll adopt us and be an outdoor cat. But I hate the thought of her being unprotected – we live on a busy road.
