Well. Apparently Bast decided that I needed some distraction on this day (from that no doubt evil and horrible movie opening, which I continue to hide from), so she sent one of her subjects.
I got home from running some errands to find a little black cat huddling terrified in the foyer of my building. She was wearing a leash, or rather, a belt fastened a bit too tightly around her neck as a leash, and was too frightened to move. So I scooped her up and took her in, because what else could I do?
I’ve put up flyers in hopes of alerting her humans so they’ll come and claim her, but in case they don’t, anyone in the New York area want a friendly, adorable black cat? She’s been really snuggly so far, sitting in my lap and purring even though she’s scared.
I’ll even pay to get her fixed before you take her.
