This is "Crabbie" . . .

a stray that we've taken in till we can find a home. A former house cat with absolutely no street skills. It's a very friendly cat, but it has the habit of kind of half growling-half meowing and it sounds like a cranky old man/woman.

It's a female. If it would have been a male I would have considered "Mr. Burns" as from "The Simpsons". That "head down" profile reminds me of some of him.

No need to trap her, she just walked up and "surrendered". A four year old cat that was nearly skin and bones. Not starving, but close. It was pretty certain that she was an escaped or dumped house cat and not a feral. Took it in to be fixed and found that she had an infected uterus (it's always something). Nursed her back to health over a week or so w/ anti-biotics. Some potential homes didn't meet my "requirements" so we're still looking. Nice cat. The only cat I know that will touch her nose to mine. I don't think she knows that she has claws.

rescuing abandoned animals is the best. the nose kiss tells me she truly appreciates your kindness and is indebted to you. way to go!

No worries there! I'm a glass-half-empty kind of guy so I go into these situations with the understanding that the "great home" might end up being mine.
