well, Charlie is the stray cat that i've been trying to rescue (he has his own thread in the "animals in need" section. he is up for adoption). well, it actually snowed here today (we knew it would) and when i opened the front door, there he was waiting for food and he had snow on his back!
so i made the immediate decision that he needed to be inside. so i locked the dogs out on the back porch and got Charlie and quickly carried him into my room.
at first he was very unsure of everything, but i went back outside and got his bowl and went in my room and fed him and gave him water. i took the extra bottom half of layla's litter box and put some litter in there for him and put it in my room. then i went and let the dogs back into the house. i went back into my room and sat with him while he ate and then i left him alone for a little while.
i started cleaning the house a bit and went back into my room about 20min later and he was hiding under the bed.
he was a little scared, but ok. so he came back out when he saw me and i stroked him a lot and he ate some more. then i left him alone again for about another 20min. well when i came back in, he was chilling out laying on my bed!
i was so happy!! he was purring and all comfortable.
so i went and cuddled with him and he was getting nice and warm. he seemed to understand that he was ok.
so i cleaned my room a little bit after that and he was fine. just hanging out on the bed. when i laid down on the bed again he actually started kneading my chest and purring!
so as of now he is doing well in my room and is sleeping on the bed in a ball.
i'm so happy he isn't outside!
i'll keep you guys updated!
please keep him in mind you guys! if you know of anyone that would like to adopt him, please PM me asap!
