    Hello all,

    This is a friendly street cat I met the other day. First time I saw her, it happened that I had cat food on me :)







    Enjoy

    PS: Edited to add another video

    She is a very pretty cat, and friendly too. She would make a lovely companion for someone, Can you not rehome her?

    With all that dry food you're feeding her she will need a lot of water to hydrate it. Will she have access to plenty of clean water every day, as a street cat?

    @chillminx: thx, she's so friendly. Plenty of street cats where I live, and no shelters or programs to help, so I try my best :)
    I am not worried about water during winter, as summer approaches I will have to start feeding wet food

    @Elias El Khoury
    Cats once they have a reliable source of food in the home may be more picky.
    My cats like mushy and shredded wet food best. They will eat some thicker pates. Oh and they like light mousse type pates.

    She might be a good candidate for you to give a home to. A pretty young cat it looks like.
    Did you say you were moving soon and were thinking of a kitten or cat?

    Yes. One trick is to put the pate side by side with the dry food on a plate. :)

    Great video! That's sweet how he let you pet him at the end. It looked like he wanted to play. Do they have a bowl of water to drink?

    They're quite talkative! The black one is rather feisty, like my Maggie. :)

    They're very pretty cats and they look quite healthy. Are they all strays? Do many local people feed them and take care of their health? (e.g. worming and flea treatments, and vet visits when they are ill? )

    @MaggieDemi: he is usually so calm and peaceful. Not sure what happened to him lately.. he is gaining his cool again though :)
    @chillminx: they are all stray. Many people feed them, but that's it. Ofc if anyone was to get really/obviously sick, then he will be taken care of.
