The Hobo

She appeared in our backyard around June 30th.  She peered through our windows and even wanted to come inside.  She took to spending the night on our sundeck at the back of the house.
Last Friday she was clearly famished.  My daughters' hearts melted, they gave her cat food and water.  She shook while eating very fast.
Saturday morning she was there...and got some food again.  Sunday night she was taken into the house in a carrier.  Today she is going to the veterinarian, until next Saturday the girls will stick posters around the neighbourhood.
Should nothing happen, as most likely will, I guess the temporarily named Esmeralda, will have found a new home with a taby, Valentin, and two other females, Catherine and Capucine.  All neutered and declawed as she will be as of tonight.  Her wandering days are over.
Around here, 1st of July is moving day.  Many people unfortunately don't bother packing the our shelters are crammed.  This one was lucky to come across Nadine and Nadia.
She does have some resemblance to a Cornish Rex although she carried no papers with her.  A real hobo.
