As we were eating breakfast Wednesday morning, one of our neighbors knocked on our door. He asked us if we owned a gray cat, as there was an injured one perched on the edge of our yard.
We don’t have a cat, but this one had somehow managed to tangle with a cactus, and was covered in little spines. I felt terrible for that poor cat!
The man told me he was going to check with the other neighbors, and if there was no owner, he was going to catch that cat and get him to the vet for some TLC.
When I left for work a few minutes later, I saw the man walking up the street, cat carrier in hand, with a very loud feline occupant inside.
I’m glad I live in a neighborhood where people are willing to get an animal the help it clearly needed! Thank you, neighbor!
