So, you may or may not know that J and I have turned into crazy cat people. As long as we have been in our house there have been a slew of neighborhood cats that we've fed, tried to keep safe, get fixed, and try to adopt out. Most of the cats are definitely feral, and although they like us (hey, we have the food) they aren't inside cats. But then Gumdrop showed up on the porch a couple of weeks ago. (We call her Gumdrop because of her tiny head on a Huge body.)

Gumdrop is obviously an inside cat. All she wants is to be petted and she yowls at the door and window to be let inside. (Which, by the way, is really heartbreaking). We've called around and listed her as a found cat, but no one seems to know about her. Perhaps she was abandoned? I worry about her being outside especially because her two front feet are declawed.

Anyway, she's on the blog in hopes that someone in KC might know of her owners, or might want to adopt her. She really is a total lover and I'm guessing would live her life quite happily on a cushion inside. Anybody recognize her? Or want to take her in?

My heart always breaks when I see stuff like this. Poor Gumdrop! I wish we could take her in, but my babies need to be older before we get a pet...Although my son is really jonesing for a cat these days. =) Good luck finding a place for her!

I know, it's so sad. Today she sat on the front porch staring into the window. Thank goodness it's been so nice out, it makes it a little better. Well, whenever your son is ready for a pet feel free to holler at me..we seem to have a steady stream of cats to adopt out!
