Bradley has barely turned putty tat, and we’ve already got a new kitty on the block.
We sighted her as we passed by the Area2 carpark. She was resting against the windscreen of a car, cool as you please. Knowing the penchant of car owners to blame cats for scratches on their car, we decided to try to get her down and away from the minefield.
She perked up at our approach. And instead of needing to be coaxed down from her perch, she came forward, purringly, and allowed btmao to lift her onto the ground.
After a few failed attempts to get a decent shot, I lifted her again and carried her out of the carpark, about 10 metres or so. She was non-resistant and purring the whole way. Definitely a home cat, or ex-home cat.
It’s not clear from this photo, but despite being much smaller in size and build, and her having a 1/3 tail compared to his stumpy excuse for one, the first thought that crossed our minds was her resemblance to Jerry. Her tabby markings, her longer than shorthair but shorter than midlength fur, and her friendly nature are Jerry hallmarks. So we decided to name her Jenny.
As I continued to try taking pics of Jenny, an auntie walked by. She seemed a bit suspicious. Then she revealed something shocking: some time back, she couldn’t recall exactly when, someone had discarded a pair of badly beaten up cat carcasses by the exit of the carpark! A police report was made and there was quite a commotion.
I then called D to alert her to the new cat. And she said that she had already sighted Jenny late last night and thought her one of our “handiwork” due to her tipped ear. D had seen her trying to follow a young couple for a short distance, but the couple gave no sign of acknowledging her.
Anyone willing to adopt or foster Jenny while we try to look for a home for this sweet sweet girl?
