This cat took up residence on our back patio last week. She was very friendly and seemed sweet -- but I'm allergic so we couldn't take her in. I fully expected her to move on after a day or 2, but she didn't. I started searching for someone to take her, but had no luck.
Jane had been thinking of getting a pet, so she came over to meet our visitor. They got along great and the cat now lives with Jane. Nate especially got attached to the cat, so he's glad she's someplace he can easily visit.
