It’s now been a week-and-a-half since we found our little house guest, who we have come to call “Baboo.” Surprisingly, no one has come forward to claim him, nor have we seen any “Lost Cat” listings that match him. Although we haven’t given up hope, this does seem to be a case of abandonment, but as they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, and we are loving every minute of his company! Despite fighting off an eye infection and a head full of mucus, Baboo has the appetite of a champion and the spirit of a saint. He loves to purr and head-butt, and never makes a fuss about being cooped up in the bathroom. We’re eager for him to get well enough that he can meet our other cats. Vikter is especially curious about this new friend, and will spend chunks of time sitting outside the bathroom, chatting at Baboo through the door.
We’re taking him in to All Pets this afternoon to get another check-up. Hopefully he’ll be in shape to greet his public (by which I mean our other cats) sooner than later!
