In early November of 2008, we had taken in a stray that had been roaming around our apartment complex. She immediately made herself at home. She was the first cat I have ever had. We named her Caramel.
Little did I know that only a few days later, at the end of the very same month, I would find another stray in our apartment parking lot. It was already dark when I came home from work. After I parked my car, a cat came out from under another car, meowing. In the darkness, I thought I saw a collar. I figured since we had good luck with our first cat, we could try to do a favor for this one. I told FO about her. FO went out to look at her.
