Welcome to the Coffee Shop Dragonlady and yep, I think you have yourself a cat. Those fur friends that choose you are usually really special. We are so happy you've found us. Please read over the OP to see what we're all about in here and then keep right on joining in. Newcomers to the Coffee Shop receive a complimentary beverage:I've basically stolen my neighbour's cat. It's the little black cat in my avatar photo. She was my cat's best friend. She used to come to my back door to call him out to play. He got hit a car a couple of years but she kept coming around looking for him.
A couple of weeks ago, my friend was picking me up, and she asked me if the little black and white cat was a stray. She had been petting the cat and she was awfully thin. My daughter was here and we both noted that her general condition wasn't good at all - dirty, dull coat, and painfully thin. She urged me to take her in.
A couple of days later, when I opened the door to put food out for her, she ran into the house, and didn't leave for two days. My current indoor cat has been very welcoming, and there's been no hissing or fighting. The black cat has gained weight and she's now grooming herself. Her coat is thin and she has no undercoat at all, but it's no longer dull or scruffy.
I texted her owner on the day after the cat came in, to tell her where her cat was, and she didn't even know it was missing. She said she would come and get her. That was two weeks ago, and she still hasn't come to get the cat. She lives across the hall from me, so there's really no effort involved.
