Mom is sad.
While she was out today with her sister, they drove by an apartment building~ there was an orange cat in a window. The window was open just a few inches. The cat's head was out. As they drove away, the cat's shoulders were out too. The window was on the second floor with grass below.
Mom worried about the cat. So close to a busy road. How long would it take his people to realize he had slipped out such a small opening? They decided to go back.
They walked around the building but couldn't find the little cat. They decided to go into the rental office; surely they would let the tenant know that their beloved cat had likely dropped 2 floors and was now wandering the area.
Mom was quickly informed that this apartment building does not allow pets and that a letter will be sent immediately telling the people to get rid of the cat. Mom and her sister begged the woman not to say anything, just pretend that they hadn't stopped in. The woman said she could not do that.
My mom was trying to do something good for the cat, but ended up costing him his home.
Oh Tasha honey..that is sad.
We are so sorry that your Mom feels bad and for the orange kitty. Purrs things will work out for the best.
Stupid human leaving the window open! Kudos to your Mom for stepping up and actually going back to see if the cat was ok. Getting hit by a car is alot worse than losing his apartment. The cat being in the window like that was going to be seen sooner or later by the apartment management.
Maybe the cat didn't live there and snuck INTO the house and was now leaving. Too much to wish for I guess.
Hopefully the tenant will find his/her cat and then move to an apartment where cats are accepted. Just hoping the cat is found by the pawrent or meets up with some new family.
Purrzz for Orangie that he is safe. Hugs to your Mom but please tell her not to feel bad. She acted like I would hope most of us would.
Meowm agrees...*Sigh*...but your Meowm did the right thing -- lookin' out for the kitty. We're envisioning the best scenario here...
Purrs and Purrs...
Oh that is lousy! Big hugs to your mom for looking out for the kitty. She did the right thing.
:(((( oh, your poor mommy! but who would remember that inmidst 21st century there are still people (landlords) who don't understand that cats (and other furred, feathered and swimming creatures) improve domestic peace and human health...
ALL paws and fingers crossed for the kitty and the tenant!!! a place that does not allow kitties can't be a good place at all...
and comforting thoughts and prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs for your mommy. tell her she shouldn't feel guilty. she just found a medieval place in a world centuries ahead! she couldn't know and did the best.
Paws crossed for kitty and the tenant. We don't think people should get kitties if they're not allowed to. It stinks but the risk and consequences of getting caught are too great. Daddy didn't adopt any kitties until he had his own condo and could do what he wanted. He didn't think a kitty would be very happy in his old tiny apartment anyway.
Here's hoping they can stash the kitty away until the heat's off and can come home.
