I came home last night to my small abode, and saw a kitty sitting on my window ledge. She could not have been older than 12 weeks. She was mewing in the windy night. I figured someone dumped her nearby, and she found my window ledge to protect herself from the elements. I don't know why she was a she, but she was.
I'm not allowed pets where I rent. But I figured that bringing a kitty out of the cold wasn't really adopting a pet. So I walked outside to pluck her from the window ledge. I figured I'd figure out what to do with her later.
Alas, she was a street-wise kitty. She wasn't having any of it. She heard the door and leapt from the ledge before I had a chance to catch her. I wandered the bushes, saying "meow, meow," and "here, kitty, kitty," but to no avail.
Now I'm worried.
I hope she'll be all right.
