More than I bargained for...

A few weeks ago I turned away a kitten from a friend because I wasn't sure I was ready to have a cat. We would have to get it declawed and spayed. Plus, we were leaving town for a week and didn't know how it would do alone in the house.
Well, the week before there was a stray cat who kept coming to our back door. At first, it ran from me, so I fed it and it became my friend. A few years ago, we had another stray we were going to keep and our neighbor took it and dropped it off on the other side of town and I never saw it again. I didn't want that to happen to this cat so we brought it in the house, she was a good cat, a little lazy and skittish, but good. We have no idea how old she is but she is thin but her belly seemed big. We attempted to take her to the vet last week, but she scratched Bill, pretty good, when he tried to get her in the car and ran off for the day. She came back that night. We had to leave for our trip and decided the vet could wait until next week.
We asked my parents to check on things while we went out of town. We got the call on Thursday!

Oh yeah, five of them! Anyone want a cat?
