We Found a Little Treasure.
U-turn. Coming back to the intersection - yep. There she is - in that wet grass underneath the real estate 'space available' sign. It's all industrial in there. I pull over to the shoulder and put the hazard lights on. Almost get rear-ended by 2 cars careening around the corner. 'Yo! This isn't a lane, you whack!' yells I. I make the long trek across the green. She sees me coming. She stops and stares at me. Her eyes are question marks - swear to God. I hold my hand out and she comes right up to me. She's purring as I carry her back to the truck. I can hear the girls screaming through the closed windows - they are so excited.
She is grey and striped - just like our Miss Kitty. She has looonnng, skinny legs, a beautiful face with big ears. She has no collar. She's very skinny. We might name her Stormy. The girls also suggested Isabella. I told them sometimes you have to get to know an animal before you know it's name. Right now I just call her 'kitten.
