Smile Charlie's in my room!

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!

Aw, I would adopt sweet Charlie, but I'm not exactly close.

But from the sound of it, Charlie might have already found him a home.

sadly, he has not found himself a home. chaquita would NEVER EVER tolerate a cat in here and plus, my future roommate is extremely allergic. that's why i've been trying to find him a home.
i will post pics soon!

well, it's not as much chaquita, carmen. it's that my future roommie is very allergic.

update:
he is FABULOUS! just lounging in my room all comfy!! he has gone to the bathroom 3 times and ALWAYS in the litter box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he will make a great pet. nothing bothers him. he just isn't crazy about being picked up, but he just slides out from your arms. he slept in the bed with me last night and woke me up meowing that he was hungry!

last night he peed in the box and it stunk sooooooooooooo bad! we could smell it through my door into the living room! it permiated everything! but it WAS in the litter box. at first, i thought UTI. but then my nan suggested that it was because he's an un-neutered male cat and it was probably his scent-marking stuff. BUT:
he's getting neutered monday!!!!! i will keep him with me all through his recovery and then post him on petfinder.com.

he is so cool. just sleeps in my room and is NO trouble. i just love him, and it will be sad to see him go.

but yah for charlie! i swear i will post pics soon, but my family's going to open gifts now (we couldn't wait! ) !

I'm glad he is doing so well, that's awesome Jane! Yah, I bet it smelled so strong since he isn't neutered yet. But cat pee smells really bad as it is, especially on your carpet! Ack!
Yay! I'm glad he is going in the litter box and eating well!
Ohh can't wait for pics! You are opening gifts now?!
I will be sending him good luck vibes for Monday!

thanks!!

new, great update: ok, i took him to the vet today (along with my cat, layla - she needed her nails done) to get everything except the neuter done (that's on monday). he had ear mites (i knew he did) but we got that all taken care of with medicine. so they are all gone! he got updated on his shots (got a new rabies tag cause he lost his first one) and got his bum cleaned, too. the vet said that he was, of course, purrfect with the vets. that's my boy! always an angel!!

layla on the other hand was SATAN as usual. hahahahahahaha!

so he is back in my room and is doing great. he is lounging on the bed and LITERALLY hugging one of the dogs' pillows. so cute. i also found an extra blue cat collar, so i put it on him with his tag.

just wanted to tell you that he's great!! i want to keep him soooo bad! ugh!
