I bought cat treats last night.

Why, you ask?

As we were heading out to the grocery store last night, the former-manager (who isn't the manager any more, but does administratey things, asked "do you know anybody who wants a kitten?" To which calantha42 immediately replied "I'll take it!" As she's been planning on a kitten for a while, now.

Turns out that some guy ran out on the rent, his apartment, and Kitty. The kitty whose sex we're uncertain about, but who looks a bit like Spot. Which of course clears up nothing.

We spent a good fifteen minutes last night trying to entice Kitty to let us touch Kitty (which I figure is a gender-neutral pronoun), and got really, really close before Kitty got spooked and ran off to hide under a car. So I bought treats, but by the time we got back Kitty had vanished for the night.

So, yeah. We might possibly at some point soon have a kitty. Kitty is going to have to suffer some mild trauma in becoming a housecat, as it's going to have to be sudden, and involve a bath, like, right away. And then unpleasant visits to places where the v-e-t will do uncomfortable things to Kitty. But for Kitty's own good.

We'll have to go back out today and see if we can further entice Kitty with food-bribery. Updates as they happen.

KITTY!

(it'll be easier once kitty is inside. with our wild cats that we caught for the animal shelters, we would put them in one smallish room in the house that could be closed up, and go in there to read very often. Or on the phone. so they got used to us being around and got used to the sound of our voices.)

Yes... Spot's (what we're now calling Kitty until we know for sure) first experience in the house is going to be unfortunately traumatic, as before Spot gets to sleep inside Spot's going to get a nasty, wet, flea-shampoo-ey bath. Then a fun stay in the bathroom for a little while. But Spot will get over it. Two servants for a bath isn't a bad trade-off, I think.

That's actually the deal we were trying to make with Spot last night. "Here, kittykittkitty. Two willing servants, right here..."
