On the eve of Sunday August 30, 2015 I found myself dumped. I couldn't find my family and was quite confused. I was hiding under a huge dumpster in a very dark alley, scared to death, when I heard a friendly sound. I saw a human approaching, speaking softly to me. She got on her belly and tried to come under the dumpster. I was a little nervous but next thing I knew I started purring and batted a paw out to her. I tried hard not to get too close but soon forgot. Next thing I knew, she had scooped me up and quickly tucked me into her clothing. I have to admit, it was warm in there and although I was still frightened, it was better than the dumpster.
Next I heard loud sounds of one of those machines! I think we were inside one! I stayed in the clothing, hiding my eyes and wondering what was to come. The noise came to a stop, I was pulled out and placed in the hands of a different person. The new person really freaked me out! I squirmed out of her hands and ran for the closest hiding place. As I scrambled up in the machine and squeezed into the smallest space I could find. There was no way I was coming out!
The machine began making noise. It felt like forever before it stopped. I began to smell some delicious scents of food and it got really quiet. Geez, my belly was so hungry! I was not going to come out though!
I think I took a nap and woke up to the sounds of people making noise ... all of a sudden, they removed one of my walls and plucked me out! There wasn't anything I could do. It kind of felt good to get out of that tight spot though and I was given back to the first person who I met under the dumpster. I liked her.
Once again I was under the garment and couldn't see what was going on. When I was released, I was standing in front of a bowl of food. I gobbled up as much as I could very quickly. As I began looking around afterward, everything started to feel a lot better. It was warm. I was getting a lot of attention and pets. I decided maybe this would be a good place to stay for a while. They keep feeding me so I have been here ever since.
