Lost child found child, foundling cat

After bragging that gs is being so good, while staying with us this week, yesterday he decided to be Tom Sawyer.

He wandered off with his puppy in his cowboy boots and hat, to the 30 acres north of our property. I admit it is tempting, hills with trees and a pond tucked in the middle.

For twenty minutes I yell ed for him, I was pretty sure I'd heard him. Dh and I go in with a pickup and he'd been hiding from me.
I need to add he's dipping his toes into the autism spectrum. This is the reality of it and I'm not liking it.

Anyway I had to chase him down (next to the pond).

He knows no fear. That's what is frightening. I can't let him play outside alone. He's been trusted for four months, but now surprise!

Then I went to the post office, and was upset and still freaked out, and this beautiful calico three legged cat just walks up to me and crawls in. I have no doubt she was abandoned, so she was an angel cat. I brought her home and she ate and curled up on my chair.

I have read that autistic children are attracted to water. Thank god you found him before he got hurt. Thank you for giving the cat a home. He obviously knew a good person when he saw one.

Aww thanks for the kind words. I did not know about the autism and water connection!

So glad you found your grandson unharmed. It is sad, but I guess you are right he can't play outdoors without being supervised. Understanding the concept of staying close where you can see the house is pretty advanced thinking. Hopefully he will understand soon.

Then you found a kitty! Or I guess the kitty really found you. Enjoy your new fur baby.

Yeah, we thought he had simply outgrown his impulse control problem. He has improved in all other areas so this hit us broadside.

I think he understands but is extremely defiant. So he's still a puzzle.

Pic of my kitty. I posted on fb in case it is a lost cat but I highly doubt it. She can't walk very far with three legs.

Glad you found your GS. And so glad the calico found you!
The friendliest calico kitten ever (looks exactly like the one in your picture) knocked on our door a week ago today. Literally knocked on the screen door. Then it started meowing, and when I opened the door, it started rubbing against my legs and lying on my feet begging to be pet. It was super skinny too. My neighbor fed it and took it to the vet to see if it had an ID chip, which it didn't, so now she has adopted her.

I like a good ending story. Glad you found your grandson and the kitty found you. Will you keep it? Our last calico was named Calli.

Yes we're attached and keeping her. She ate so much last night im sure she was abandoned. She made herself right at home. She must have been someone's pet who died or something. She is very good and has been around people constantly.

The cat is beautiful! We have a calico also and I just love all their pretty colors. Is her one ear clipped? It sort of looks like it in the picture. That may mean she has been trapped, neutered, and released. Our local humane society does that with strays. All the better for you!

I think she's been in an accident, her ear is damaged, one pupil is dilated more than the other, and the one leg is missing. Other than that she's well cared for and has been spayed. She's very spoiled and kid friendly.

I suspect she belonged to someone who went to a nursing home...she seems to be used to constant companionship. Yet she's not annoying.

Now that I look at her ear it does look clipped as you say.

I need an inventor to make her a prosthetic leg so she can scratch behind her ear. It's driving her batty. She can get around pretty well although I've put her on a diet as she was a bit tubby.
