yesterday started innocently enough, as you saw... then i went to run a few little errands with hub, and he got thirsty, so we stopped at burger king a few towns away to get him a tea (he likes their tea...). and in the drive-through, we saw a scrawny grey kitty, who looked right at me and spoke to me. we got her a fish sandwich and i fed her out of my hand. she wasn't feral, just skin and bones and need. and i scooped her up and took her away.
i don't go around picking up animals in drive-thrus, not normally. i used to, and then learned i just couldn't keep on. it usually doesn't turn out so well. in this case, i could not take the kitty home because my dogs would not have it, but now... now i have the hotel!
even though she was demanding at burger-king, she was a little wary of the car-ride, and then shy when we first got to the hotel..
but it didn't take long to lure her out, poor hungry girl..
and then she loved and climbed on me for almost four hours...
hub went and got her some food, litter, toys, and a little collar...
so now she is settled at the hadley, and my sweet studio-mates agree that a studio-kitty is exactly what has been missing from our lives. so we named her miss hadley (or maybe hadley queen, we'll see..) today she is talking, basking in the sun, lounging on the sofas, getting ready for her vet visit, and (i hope) learning about the litter box..
i am so happy to have kitty love in my life again.
