    Found this little beauty on the street yesterday and she followed me home - I didn't have the heart to chase her away :(

    [​IMG]

    She is about 4 months old. Very sweet and affectionate. Looks well fed and clean. She does have some older wounds, most likely from when she got in a fight with other, older cats.
    It is quite obvious she's been someones house cat, she is very comfortable in a room, she loves to snuggle - she is the proverbial lap cat. And since she is a Garfield lookalike she's also very lazy. :p

    I've already posted her on FB asking if someone lost her and/or if someone wants to adopt her.
    I wish I could keep her tho :001_wub:

    EDIT: It's a BOY LoL ... no wonder I couldn't find a suitable name for him

    Have you had her checked for a microchip?

    Worth asking the neighbours near you if they recognise her. If she's been
    well looked after chances are she has escaped from her house and her owner is desperately looking for her.

    Can you put up a "lost" notice in all the local vets?

    Edit: sorry I meant a "Found" notice :)

    No chip - not surprised since it is not that common to have done here, especially for cats.

    "Local" vets are miles away, so I didn't bother putting a lost notice up there but I did put flyers up in the general area I found her.

    :)

    Aww she is lovely!! :001_wub:

    Go back to the place she started following you and knock on all the doors. Chances are she won't have a chip as so young and generally people do it when they are neutered, but check anyway!

    aww she is so cute!!! :001_wub:

    Where do you live? She is gorgeous!! She might have a chip, I got Treacle done before he was neutered (and he didn't mind!) Have you checked missing pet websites like Animal Search UK? Find pets :)

    She was "hanging out" at a fast food stand. Been there, asked the owner if she knows anything about the cat and left a flyer.

    haha I am from Serbia so those sites wouldn't be of any use for me :)

    Here's hoping that she just got lost and not that her owner tossed her out :(

    :eek: Nope, and I am trying to not let her find out. After Bella and the kittens were adopted she sent me a bill for the flea treatment of the whole house. She claimed she and her husband were riddled with flea bites... interesting, since I slept in the same bed as the cats and had no flea bites at all, but they, who live in the big house, not in the small one I am in, they were flea infested. :thumbdown:

    Cheeky mare!!!! She was obviously on the take there. :angry:

    If she does find out just say to her that you have already had kitty treated for fleas to prevent a 'repeat' :)rolleyes:) occurance but 'should' there be a problem, to let you know immediately and YOU will sort it out.

    You leave the laptop unattended for 1 minute and this is what you come back to. Never had Bella or the kittens hogging up the keyboard, but apparently this little dude loves to stretch out on it.

    And this pic is just pure cuteness :001_wub:
    I couldn't capture it, but he kept moving his paw like he was waving at me!

    *sigh* I still have no name picked out for the little lad. Any suggestions?
