ugh! The landlord called and said she found stray cat owner

I am soooo upset. She just called and I was just starting to get ready to go to the vet with the cat. It turns out the owner was away on vacation and someone was house/cat sitting for her and assumed the cat was an outdoor cat and would just let it in once a day to feed it. The owner comes back tonite and is going to call me. I know I need to give the kitty back but I am pretty unimpressed. I have already fallen in love with this kitty and was ready to bring it to a vet. As it was I took the day off from work to bring kitty to the vet. I dunno..i'm just so upset and frustrated....any thing I should say to this person?

I understand why you're upset. What a bad pet-sitter... I'm sorry you're disappointed, but I'm glad the owner cares enough to ask for the cat back.

Yes, I responed to the original. The best way to keep threads organized would be to add the word "update" to the original thread title. We understand that you're upset, though.

Oh I am so sorry. I would give the cat owner a bit of my mind and the cat sitter. Sorry again you sounded like you really wantted the kitty as well.

However the up side is that you can now get the other little kitten that you were on about in your last posts.

Sorry to hear that again. *Hugs*

Oh, I'm sorry. I hope the person gets a better pet sitter! Poor kitty. Poor you!
But as Baby said, now you can take home one of the kittens and not feel torn

yeah..although I really do love this kitty. I am pretty upset by this. I wonder if the onwer told the sitter not to let it out. I had never seen this cat until recently so it must have been an indoor cat strictly. The cat does seem a bit on the skinny side and it has scabs and red patches under its chin. It looks a bit mangy. I don't think it's cared for that well in either case. The cat actually looks a lot like willis did when I first got him. My boyfriend notices this as well. It also looks like it has a black scab on the right side of its anus. I just feel bad for the cat. i know i could give it a better home. It doesn't seem to miss its old home. It adapted super fast here. It doesn't sit in the window or cry or anything. It hops into my lap and purrs.....Not to mention I talked to the pet sitter at noon today and its now 7 and neither the pet sitter or the owners (who are arriving sometime this evening from vacation) have contacted me yet. I dont' want to just put the cat back outside. Maybe I should. I don't know.
