Earlier this evening, we came home by way of Chloe’s spot.
Again, with this family’s penchant for luring good-looking cats to their door, we were not surprised. the famil was not home however, and nor one of the resident cats were around. We called to her, and surprising us out of our sandals, she immediately jumped out of the shoe rack and trotted towards us. She was extremely friendly and responsive. We decude that this msut be the usual tmie she got fed by the family, and being deprived of her usual meal, she’s hungry and willing to be friends.
We got her to follow us behind the family’s unit for a good look. It turns out that she has balls… so now she is Freddy.
A very handsome agouti tabby tuxedo, he has a perfect lnog tail. He looks to about 1 year old. He also has a very soft sweet voice.
Freddy is also extremely friendly and trusting. Even though he’s not a girl, we still feel that he ought to be relieved of his mojo – our operation treats all cats the same way. But this being the weekend, and Monday New Year’s Eve, it would be difficult to book him an appointment with any vet. But given that it was a rare chance to see him outside the school premises, and being so responsive, we did not want to miss the chance.
So we called Foster Mum to see if she’s able to pull some strings. But, too bad, she could not. However, she would be able to house him temporarily until arrangements could be made for him, which ough to be very soon. Grateful and relieved, we hung up and plotted his kitnapping, which turned out to be a non-event.
While btmao went home to get a carrier, I lured him to the void deck at our block to facilitate the necessary. He followed willingly, even though all I did was clicked at him, as we did not have any kitty treats on us.
I could handle him easily, and he was putty in my hands.
When btmao came down with the carrier, he got slightly spooked at the sight of the carrier – it was something obviously alien to him.
But then he quickly resume his trust, and with a slight push, he entered the carrier and did not struggle at all. Even when we got him home, all he did was sit in the carrier obediently.
We tried to give him some water. He came out of the carrier readily but instead of drinking, he was curious about the new situation he was in. He was fearless, did not slink though his hindquarters were set a little low. It was again a simple matter to turn him around and nudge back into the carrier.
Tomorrow, we will send him over to Foster Mum’s.
However, finally getting him now still leaves questions: the kitty btmao saw Ivan chase off was a girl and wearing a collar, and she resembles Freddy a lot, who is she?
