I know it’s September, but meet August.
Until 3 days ago (Sept. 7) this young cat lived in the street. He came strolling through my door when I was at the peak of my anger only to meow at me. He stayed for about 30 seconds, but he return later that night to beg for food.
He had a collar, so I let him out after feeding him, expecting him to go home. A friend who loves animals (even feed the street cats and offered her garage for over 9 adult cats and their kittens) told me that August was an abandon cat because a lot of the villagers saw him sleeping night after night in the hidden areas of the street.
I felt bad and angry for whoever abandoned him. It was bad enough to abandon such a young cat, but to abandon him with a collar that would most probably choke him as he grows older was too cruel.
5 days later, he returned, marching in without hesitation. He sat on our lap and stayed the whole night. I decided then that I want to adopt him. We first meet him in August so I decided it would suit him to be called that as well.
However, he was so insistent about going out by morning and I couldn’t keep him inside. I didn’t have cat food (I only fed him some slices of ham and can food) or cat litter. The nearest supermarket is about 15 km of long winding road.
I borrowed cat food and cat litter from my friend and anxiously waited for August to return for two days, but when he did, he put his paw on the bar I’ve placed on the door to stop the street cats from casually going in. He meowed and jump in the moment I invited him, but he got desperate when I showed the cat litter. Unfortunately, he didn’t know how to use it and ran out to poop.
We search the entire night as he seemed rather desperate to get away, only for my neighbor (and friend, the cat angel) to find him at her doorstep.
He kept meowing at me from the balcony. He also cried and come to me when I came to get him.
Now he won’t step out of the house without us, yet he behaves like the king of the road when we go out with him on a leash.
Now and then he stays in front of the doorstep hissing at every cat who approaches. He even went in to the garage beside us only to growl at the wild cats. The brat. 😂 Poor cats beside.
I know it’s only a few days since he came to us, and everyone was surprised how he acts so much at home in my place, but for me, it’s no surprise since we’re not the one who chose him, he chose us.

I’m having trouble commenting for some reason. I love the fact that August adopted you, he obviously knew you would make a good human for him! I also like the fact he would walk with a leash, I never could get Muffin to do that.😊😻
Thanks Steve. 💕 You’re probably having trouble because it’s heart breaking to think that he was abandoned. However, it turns out he ran away from home and came to us. Now he ran from home again and has been with us for week. The owner hasn’t come to get him again. Sigh. I wonder what they’re thinking.
Perhaps they are happy he has found a new home!😻 No, when I tried to comment before a notice came up “Nonce comment failed”. I had to try 5 times before my comment worked.🤔🙄🍂🍁
Whoa what the hell? WordPress is messing with my website 🙁 About August. Ugh. I need to speak with the owner and clearly get a confirmation that they’re giving him up
Yes, that would be good, then you’ll know if you can keep him or not. It’s happening on my blog too, 3 people have told me. And I had the same problem on 4 other blogs.🙄
Ouch. I hope they’ll get it together
Yes, me too.
It’s even more magical indeed when they choose us 😍💕 Happy family 😉😻
Yes, he truly did. Because have a home after all. His owner return and took him back. He ran away from home and came to us. Now he ran from home again and has been with us for week. I don’t understand what the owner is thinking. They haven’t come to get him again. Gosh I’m so confuse because he feels so at home 😅
Maybe his owner knows that he’s good at your place so he just let him and you enjoying it 😻😉
I got that feeling that feeling as well. We just have a bit of concern because the cat isn’t train to use cat litter so it may cause trouble if I train him, on the other side it’s tiresome to keep digging for soil for him to use. 😶
A friend in need is a friend indeed! I’m happy the cat found you.
That’s true. Sadly it becomes a complicated situation now haha
Haha the owner turn up and claimed him. But two days later he returned and has been living with us since the owner don’t seem to mind anymore 😅
best of luck with August!
Thank you 💕
August is so lucky as he is persistent as well 😁 This is great decision to give him a home, some things are just meant to be I guess 😊
Thanks Hug 🤗 sadly, he have a home. His owner return and took him back. He ran away from home and came to us. Now he ran from home again and has been with us for week. I don’t understand what the owner is thinking. They haven’t come to get him too. Gosh I’m so confuse
It’s the kind of people that when you are happy with someone else, then I want you back so I can neglect you again 🤦🏻♀️ it’s actually sad and sick
At the end, I believe that the pet choice will win 😊
Haha that’s exactly what went through my head 😅 😑😿
I’m reading your mind😎😎
Oh my god, please have mercy on me, I got too many secrets in my head 🤣
Cats have always been good at adopting humans 🙂
Verifies my suspicions… cats actually run the world! 😉
I’m sure they do 🤣
Looks like your son has a new playmate. I like the name.
Thank you! Yes, he adore my son too <3
That August seems like a real cool cat. 🙂
He is <3 I love that he likes walking with leash on, surprising a lot of people here haha :D
