When I went out on the common balcony today, there were three cats, a mother and two small kittens, lying huddled up together on an old armchair.
As you know, it’s far below sero in Sweden these days so I invited them in. Only the mother was very distrusting and didn’t seem to dare go inside. I searched my fridge and found some tinned tuna and used this to lure the cat family inside. They ate with obvious pleasure and, while they still seem suspicious of me, they at least have agreed to come in to the warmth for a couple of minutes.
I would love to keep them, but there are two things preventing me: Hannes, who is seriously allergic to cats, and Greger, who hates them with a passion. I left food, water and an old fur coat for them on the balcony, but I still can’t get any sleep knowing they’re there.
My heart is breaking for these little animals out in the cold, so I’d like to ask if there is anyone living in Southern Sweden who would like to take care of them, at least during the rest of winter? If so, I’ll take the cat(s) to you personally.
