Default Someone dumped a kitten on the doorstep

Not my house, but my brother's.

Kaly-cat was having a fit meowing up a storm at the front door Friday evening. Finally my niece looked outside and there was a little grey and white kitten on the porch. Very small, but able to eat solid food. They think its a boy. They went around the neighborhood knocking on doors to see if anyone was missing it, but no one claimed it. They've taken it in, but Kaly-cat is none too pleased. It keeps following her around and she hisses at it, but no aggression. Looks like they're going to keep it if they don't find an owner. The kitten seems to like my brother, which Kaly-cat never did like him, so he's happy to have a cat that likes him. They haven't named him yet.

It's nice that this story will have a happy ending, but it's truly disturbing that people think it's ok to dispose of unwanted pets this way.

Incredible isn't it?

The reason I first came on this forum was because of my dog finding a box containing a nursing mother and four kittens in a cardboard box that was starting to disintegrate because of the torrential rain.

Sometimes I just don't understand people.

Yes, people can be just horrible to their pets and even to animals that are not theirs for that matter. The poor little guy was too small to have traveled far on his own, so we can only assume he was dumped. Why they picked my brother's house, I don't know. Maybe its someone who knows him and thought he would take it in, but then if they knew him, they could have just asked....but anything could have happened out there before it was discovered. Their previous cat, Garfield, was killed by dogs right outside the door. Thank goodness those dogs are no longer terrorizing the neighborhood.

Poor kitten! I'm happy to hear your brother's family is willing and able to take the kitten in. Have they tried "properly" introducing the cats, or did they just put the two together? I've seen quite a few posts here on introducing a new cat to an existing one- maybe trying a slow introduction would help Kaly-cat be more friendly to the new baby?

They should probably isolate it from their cat(s). It could be infectious.

People are unbelievable. Just last Sunday we brought the neighbour's cat to a no kill shelter as they pretty much threw him out with shortly trimmed nails and no hunting skills. They also refused to admit it was their cat... they seem to be happy he is gone. People sicken me.

Also, I agree he should isolate the cat until he can get it checked out by a vet.

They just put them together in the house..I only found out about it today and did try to suggest the slow introduction. Not sure if it sunk in..

I also made this suggestion, to keep them separate at least until the kitten is checked out by a vet. Probably too late at this point if the kitten is infected with anything.

Perhaps the new kitten will be accepted by Kaly. Our Emily was dumped at our townhouse complex.
