At Reeds Lane, Moreton bus stop at 5:30pm today, icy cold, windy and raining hard, an elderly cat came right into the bus shelter.
She was a dark grey, long haired Persian, her right eye had a cataract, and her tongue was sticking out so she was probably missing a few teeth too.
She was so friendly, I was able to pick her up and sit down to cuddle her on my lap. She was purring and rubbing her face on my cheek. Sadly, my bus came just a couple of minutes later and I had to put her back down. I would have brought her home with me, but she had a collar on.
The poor cat needs to be safe and warm indoors on a night like this, especially since she's old and half blind. I'm posting this in case someone has lost her or doesn't realise she's out.
I always worry about cats that'll approach anyone. Not everyone is kind to them.
