I used to leave food and water for the strays in my apartment complex on my porch. One day, I was coming home from work, walking through the parking lot when I saw an adult cat and a small kitten trying to eat a smooshed cheeseburger. I called to them to get them to follow me to food up on my porch, but the adult cat got scared and ran. The little 2-month-old (about) black kitty followed me right up my stairs and I decided she was mine now. I took her inside and she's been my cat ever since. She is now 12 years old and I love her so much!
