“Meow” means Kitty – and the story behind it

Cat the Stranger – that’s how I call him. Homeless or just lost. Who knows. He looks like he’s been shaved by some kids just for fun. My husband says he looks normal. I mean, that the haircut looks normal. I don’t think so. He acts like he used to be domestic.

The first time I saw his walking towards me I ran, scared, back to our apartment. He looked so wild. He was waving his tail and meowing SO LOUD. After a while I got used to him and I let him get closer. I have no idea if he carriers some diseases so I won’t let my daughter to touch him or get very close. He is very friendly guy. It’s been about 3 days since we first heard him. He comes around our door about dinner time. Our daughter gets so excited when she sees him πŸ™‚

Thanks to that kitty she finally understood that when we say: “meow” it means “kitty”. I’ve gone through books with her pointing and cats, and saying “meow” every single time, but yesterday when she saw that cat and heard him you could see that “I GOT IT” face! It was sooo funny! Now she says “meow” every single time she sees a picture of a cat.

It’s really great to be able to witness all those little steps she takes to understand the world around her. It’s even more beautiful to observe how she does that, what helps her, and when it happens!

I am not a cat person. If I was that cat would’ve been ours already. I like cats but I hate that they need that litter stuff, and they poop at the house, and that they aren’t so lovey dovey… which for me is the main point you have a pet at the house πŸ™‚ On the other hand I don’t want him to go to a shelter where he might go pretty soon if he won’t go away. He looks so cute and friendly… and… so neglected. I wish I could do something for him…. .

  1. Wow! I love the shot you have of him walking almost right into your lens. SO cool!
    And what a nice Cat the Stranger for teaching in such an authentic way.


  2. Aw, he’s definitly been shaved by a well-meaning human to keep him cooler this summer. Why not see if he wants to come inside? We’ve found that the outdoor/neglected cats can (and often do) become *quite* lovey-dovey when you first show them some love. Heck he might change your opinion of cats! And plus it’s never a bad thing to let your daughter get to know a new type of creature… talk about building her character. If nothing else, I do recommend feeding/watering him until you can locate a resource for finding him a foster home. IMO, he’s a keeper. Good luck.


    1. I wouldn’t let him inside. We’ve got doggy that gets toooo excited around cats. In addition I’m little bit afraid he migh have (migh not) have some disease or something not very safe to have around kids. I don’t know where his been… . I would let him closer if I knew he is ok.


  3. Oh! I love watching little ones make those kinds of big connections. Your daughter sounds adorable — and I think that cat’s trying to adopt your family. Great pictures!


  4. Man! I feel like another cat took these photos! I love the perspective you give–beautiful pictures! I can see that this kitty has lots of personality πŸ™‚


  5. Those ones at the door are so adorable. Glad it’s warming its way into your hearts. Cats can be quite loving and sensitive to you if you let them in πŸ˜‰ Sweet photos!


  6. What a fascinating feline subject he is! Looks like he’s from the wrong side of the railroad-tracks πŸ˜‰ Your shots of him are amazing, though, and I love that a sweet stray is so capable of teaching little lessons to your family.

    You know, you *could* just keep him as an outdoor cat — to scare away rodents and such — if you come to like him enough. We have an outdoor cat and he is super-carefree. We feed and water him, and he lays around on the porch. Easy, peasy πŸ™‚


  7. These pics are wonderful! I fell in love with him! I understand your reservations to let him inside or keep him as a pet. Have you sent these pics to friends you know who might be interested? I have a sense he would make a good pet.

    Btw, our cat is an indoor/outdoor cat, and he only poops in his litter box if absolutely necessary. He prefers to go out in the woods, for which we are grateful. πŸ˜‰

  8. It looks like there’s a tiny lion staring into the eyes of a giant baby. And they’re trying to decide if they’re foes or friends. So cute. Language development really is so exciting to experience as a baby grows!
