There isn't anything as bad as a CAT coming up to your stacked rope,
PI$$ING on it, and then trying to cover it with Dirt!

That particular one was purring and napping on my shoulder as I belayed m friend on pitch 1. :(((((((

That cat SCORED a perfect human. Someone must have told it climbers are a bunch of emo-softies pretending to be hard. Its in cat luxury now. UPGRADE!

So glad to hear that you two stepped up & did the right thing. I sincerely hope you enjoy many years together with this lucky kitty. Hard to believe that nobody fed or gave it water for two days.

Your kindness to the little critter will be repaid tenfold.
Cheers!

Vitaliy -

Nice to meet you guys on the trail. Sorry, we got there first, nah, nah, nah, nah ,nah. (Just kidding, man).

Yes, once you guys told us the tale, we stopped by the Village Market for cat food then stopped by the Ahwahnee where no one knew anything about said cat. We couldn't leave it knowing the care we would provide and believing it would be better off with us.

Matisse - We are momentarily keeping all details about said cat under wraps to ensure that we can identify the true owner if they step up. No offense to anyone, but we don't want someone to claim it and have it end up livin' a dirtbag life in Camp 4.

To be honest I think the cat will be better with you guys than anyone else. Anything is possible, and maybe he just got lost, but letting your cat wander around Yosemite is never a good idea. I believe you two are responsible and would protect your cats with great care. I hope he stays in your hands..

:`(((((((((((((( If I ever visit SoCal can I beg to do a small re-union with him. Seriously was one of the nicest little things I have met in my life. Nice to meet you guys too.

Strays are really common around campgrounds. Unfortunately people bring their cats on road-trips and cats often escape and get lost.

Kitty lucked out that you guys picked him up before he got eaten or starved to death. Good thing he's so friendly.

Cosmics petulant display of insolence (in regards to cat's) was prollie fueled by memories of

hey there say, D'Wolf... very good to give the cat safty and still keep checking for its owners...

i know chappy had a cat for years in yosemite (yosemite west) and think? he said it was one of the few cats that survived all those years, as many do not...

he kept her in, i reckon, but of course, they like to go out and many folks DO let them out and come back in... she was a GREAT CAT, and when he moved he brought her to my mom (i was living with her at the time) ...

the cat lived ?about 2-3?? more years, not sure... but--she was about 20 +? years old... very thin and showing her age by then... but a wonderful cat... *she must hve known to stay close to home and avoid wildlife and strangers, :)


so--
you never know why that cat was roaming... so you are doing good to let the owner get a chance, and helping it out....

good job...

:)

Thanks guys for all the well wishes. I don't know how much I believe in karma, but I know how we'd feel if one of our others somehow wandered from home (they are indoor only, as will be the new edition). We cannot keep this cat around no matter how much we want to without making some attempt to find the person who is probably experiencing what we would never want to experience.

Vitaliy - anytime man; shoot me an email when you're in town; we'll let you have supervised visits! (just kidding).

Cheers,
Thom
