Since more than a week ago, we have had a new inhabitant in the courtyard. It is a three-legged cat. Last weekend when I was on my way to the laundry room, it followed me on a quiet morning. I am not a cat lover, so naturally in the beginning I felt kind of intimidated. But upon seeing its milk box empty, I guessed it must have been starved.
Since then I have become one of its food providers. Though I couldn't bring myself to pet it like others, the milk in my fridge is 100% prepared for it.
This morning when I went to do the laundry, I filled up the milk box for it, but it still followed me. We stood under the sunshine. I bent forward asking, "Are you lonely too?" Then I couldn't help caressing it.
We took a short walk in the courtyard. When Mia from Block A was about to go out, the cat also walked to her for some attention. I asked Mia, "Do you know if it's a boy or a girl?" She replied, "I don't know, but I kind of hope it's a girl..." That's what I think too...
